The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – January 14, 2022 (1/14/22)

Please note that players on DraftKings and FanDuel have multi-position eligibility and may not always match their position between each other. In this article, we will be breaking down some of our favorite plays on the slate at their positions. Remember to keep your eye on the news as the day progresses, as NBA news frequently changes the slate.

Point Guard

Cole Anthony ($7,800 DK, $7,600 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Cole Anthony ORL 28 5 23 34 19.8 82.9 10.5 12.4

The Hornets host the Magic tonight in Charlotte, and on paper, this should be a fantasy-friendly game to target. Both teams are in the bottom 5 in Defensive Rating, and the Hornets are number 2 in Pace this season. Anthony has been remarkably consistent lately, scoring at least 43 fantasy points in 4 of his last five games. The Hornets currently rank 27th in fantasy points allowed to the PG position.

 

Shooting Guard

Jordan Poole ($5,000 DK, $5,100 FD) 

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Jordan Poole GSW 34 26 8 29.4 17.1 57.4 5.3 5.9

The Warriors will be without key rotation players tonight; Draymond Green is OUT, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, and Otto Porter are all doubtful. In 331 minutes with Thompson and Green off the floor, Poole averages 1.03 fantasy points per minute, and the Bulls currently rank 27th in fantasy points allowed to the SG position.

 

Small Forward

OG Anunoby ($6,500 DK, $6,200 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
OG Anunoby TOR 23 14 9 36 19.3 53.3 9.3 4.7

The Raptors have a plus matchup tonight against one of the worst teams in the league Detroit Pistons. Scottie Barnes and Gary Trent are questionable for the Raptors, so we will need to monitor the situation as lock approaches. The Pistons rank 23rd in Defensive Rating, 10th in Pace, and are 30th in fantasy points allowed to the small forward position.

UPDATE: GARY TRENT IS OUT

Power Forward

Christian Wood ($7,400 DK, $7,200 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Christian Wood HOU 40 12 28 30.8 17.2 56.5 15.5 4.2

We have another fantasy-friendly matchup to target, as the Kings travel to Houston to take on the Rockets. Both teams are in the bottom 5 of defensive rating and the top 10 in Pace. This is the last game on the slate and should draw a ton of ownership; while Wood will inevitably be popular, I like his ceiling in this spot. 

Center

Onyeka Okongwu ($4,800 DK, $3,900 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Onyeka Okongwu ATL 8 2 6 23.2 9 29.5 10.8 2.6

Clint Capela remains OUT tonight with an Ankle Injury, and we should expect Okongwu to start in his place. Over the past two games, Okongwu has been averaging 7.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and one stock in Capela’s absence. Okongwu’s salary on Draftkings is a little high, so I’ll be looking to get most of my exposure over on Fanduel tonight.
