03/26/2021 Draftkings NBA DFS Plays and Notes

Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Luka Doncic is listed as doubtful, Kristaps Porzingis becomes a great pay up and Josh Richardson, Jaylen Brunson, THJ are good values.

  • James Harden is questionable, if he misses Chris Chioza,TLC ,Tyler Johnson,Bruce Brown all become viable.

  • Steph Curry is still out and Draymond Green is questionable for tonight, if Draymond misses Andrew Wiggins and Juan Toscano Anderson become solid values.

  • Houston will have alot of minutes and usage up for grabs with the departure of Victor Oladipo. John Wall, KPJ (If healthy), Sterling Brown all get nice usage bumps.

  • Jusuf Nurkic will mosty likely make his return to the court tonight, expect this to impact Enes Kanters minutes. Would probably hold off on Nurkic untill we get a grasp on how many minutes he will play.

  • The Magic will have a tight rotation after trading Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier. Khem Birch , Chuma, Bacon, MCW will all be popular plays tonight.

  • Lonzo Ball is doubtful for tonight and the Pels will be without JJ Redick and Nicolo Melli after sending them off to Dallas. Nickeil Alexander Walker will be a solid value while Josh Heart and Kira Lewis Jr. will be intresting GPP plays in what is now a tight back court rotation.

  • Dame Lillard will miss tonight and the Trail Blazers will be short handed after shipping Gary Trent Jr. to Toronto. Expect CJ McCollum to be a cash game lock and Carmelo Anthony and Anfernee Simons to be decent options (keep and eye out onNorm Powell's avability).

  • Goran Dragic is out and Kelly Olynik has been traded, expect to see a repeat of the Heat chalk but be careful 2nd night of a B2B where they played big minutes could get ugly.

  • Collin Sexton is questionable tonight, if he misses expect Darius Garland to be a good play also the cavs might lean more on their big men (Larry Nance Jr is intresting in GPPs).

  • Tristan Thompson is out traded and Daniel Theis has been traded, this makes Robert Williams an intresting play.

General Slate Thoughts

  • We got lucky last night with a 5 gamer now we have an injury/ trade rittled 11 game slate, Make sure you have swap plans if Harden gets declared out and make sure you have a lineup built if Jimmy Butler is declared out.

  • CJ McCollum will probably be the most owned player on the slate but this is the back end of a back to back and hes coming fresh off an injury so if you fade him, Simons and Melo seem like good leverage plays.

  • With tight rotations and back to back games look for possible blowouts and try to narrow down your player pool from competitive games.

  • Gary Trent Jr. and Hamidou Diallo are both extreemly intresting to me in GPP's both on new teams and could be in the starting linup getting big minutes. If Gary Trent Jr. is played anything near what Norm got played he will be absoutly crush a $4,700 price tag.

  • Houston/ Minnesota seems like a nice game stack with points concentrated on a few studs that are priced pretty well and has the 3rd highest total on the slate. And Toronto/Phoenix will have almost no ownership with great upside.
