The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – May 13, 2022 (5/13/22)
Please note that players on DraftKings and FanDuel have multi-position eligibility and may not always match their position with each other. In this article, we will be breaking down some of our favorite plays on the slate at their positions. Remember to always keep your eye on the news as the day progresses, as NBA news changes the slate frequently.
- Robert Williams (Q)
- Khris Middleton (O)
- Ja Morant (O)
- Otto Porter Jr. (Q)
Jones is going to be one of the most popular players on this slate and I am telling you just eat the chalk when it comes to Jones. As was the case in the regular season when Ja Morant was out Jones has shown out in the last two games with Morant on the sidelines. In those two games, Jones is averaging 20 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and two steals+blocks. Jones has at least 37 DraftKings points in each of those games.
While Tyus Jones is a very safe play on this slate Kuminga is a very risky play but one I am willing to take at his salary. The reason why I am willing to take the risk with Kuminga is based on what we have seen from him with Gary Payton II out. Kuminga has started each of those three games and played double-digit minutes in two of the games. In those two games, Kuminga has scored at least 17 points and produced at least 21 DraftKings points. With Otto Porter Jr. banged up we should see Kuminga play double-digit minutes again. If Porter were to miss this game altogether which I don’t think is the case then we could see Kuminga play close to 30 minutes in this game.
Jaren Jackson Jr.
I really like Al Horford again tonight but I am going to avoid writing up Horford again tonight. Instead, I am going to give you a player that I like as much as Horford in the same salary range in Triple-J. Jackson Jr. started off the series hot with 52 fantasy points then cooled off in games two and three but has been back on a tear the past two games. In those two games, he is averaging 21 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 3.5 blocks. Jackson Jr. has at least 41 fantasy points in each of those games. These performances should come as a shock as Jackson Jr. gets a big boost whenever Morant is out. This season with Morant off the court, Jackson Jr. has a usage rate of 30.1% which is a 4.6% increase compared to when sharing the court with Morant.
