Sharing core plays and a cheat sheet for March 11, 2020, NBA DFS slate on DraftKings.
In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for DraftKings for each night of the 2019-2020 NBA DFS season.
Sixers Still Providing Value
With likely no Joel Embiid or Ben Simmons and Josh Richardson on a minutes limit there is a ton of available value on the 76ers tonight in their match-up against the G-League Pistons. Tobias Harris is the biggest winner drawing a 25.4% USG while sporting a very good 1.15 FPPM in minutes with those guys off the floor. Other than Tobias the big winners are the guys who are going to pick up the minutes for those three. I expect Al Horford to take a bunch of Embiid minutes, Robinson to take a bunch of the Josh Richardson minutes and Shake Milton to take a bunch of the Ben Simmons minutes. I think all three of those guys are firmly in play with all of them averaging 0.99 FPPM or higher in this situation. In terms of the guy I want in the core, that is Tobias Harris as he covers a weak position while sporting a usage bump and having the best of the great player match-ups against the Pistons.
Must Win Game for Kings and Pelicans
Once left for dead for the playoffs (think I called them tanking in at least one of these articles), the Kings after a 7-3 stretch of basketball are only 3 games out of the loss column of the 8 seed. Tonight they play one of those fellow bubble teams in the the New Orleans Pelicans in a 233 total game. The prices on these players are as if they are playing the All-Star team or playing a 10 man rotation. Neither is true and we have fantastic values on Fox, Hield and Bogdanovic. From the Pelicans, I am fading Lonzo Ball thanks to his horrific past vs De’Aaron Fox which dates back to college. Core Pelicans for me will be Jrue and/or Ingram to go along with the 2-3 Kings I’m gonna be playing on most teams. (as of now)
Please note that we can only list a player at one position on the cheat sheets and unless otherwise noted I like the player at both of their eligible positions.
