    Welcome to today’s DFS Delivery article.

    After a monster slate yesterday, we have a small three-gamer on our hands for tonight. The Warriors are hosting the Pacers, in what the books think that it is the most likely game to be a blowout, the Mavs are hosting the Suns and the Knicks are hosting the Pelicans.

    In a three-gamer, we have to look deep into the teams’ rotations and try to find value, so let’s go and have a look at some of my top plays for tonight, at the time of writing.

    Player Tiers

    Expensive Tier

    Luka Doncic ($10,400) After a slow start, Doncic seems to be getting back to his old self as of late, getting 3 triple-doubles in the last 6 games and averaging close to 36 minutes per game. His DraftKings salary is low for his production at $10,400 and although the matchup against the Suns is not going to be an easy one, Doncic’s heavy usage and big minutes will ensure he produces regardless.

    Brandon Ingram ($8,000) Ingram’s floor over his last 5 games has been 39.5 DraftKings points and that is an excellent floor for someone priced around 8k. His usage rate has been over 29% during that span and with Graham most likely out for tonight, we could see that number even higher! On top of that, he is going up against the struggling Knicks.


    Josh Hart ($6,300) – Hart is another one who can benefit from the absence of Graham tonight. And don’t get me wrong, I like him, even if Graham is in, but in case he is ruled out, Hart’s minutes will be secured in the high 30s and he will get an increase in his usage rates. We can always count on him with peripheral stats, but the opportunity for him to get more FGA is intriguing.

    Klay Thompson ($5,300) –  Thompson is slowly finding his groove after the 2-year absence and he had 35.8 DraftKings points in Tuesday’s win over the Pistons. Tonight he is facing the Pacers, on their second night of a back-to-back, a team that allows a bottom five 3PT% allowed this season. Thompson might be playing limited minutes, but if his shot is falling, he is capable of giving us high production, something not many in his price range can do.


    Jonathan Kuminga ($4,300) – Kuminga got the starting gig in place of the injured Draymond Green and he is making the most of it. He is averaging well over 1.5 DraftKings points per minute over his last five games in just under 30 minutes of playing time. The matchup against the Pacers is nothing to be afraid of, and Kuminga looks to be blowout-free also since he has been getting run regardless.

    JaVale McGee ($4,000) –  Yes I know, McGee is going to be chalk tonight but there is a good reason for that. He let everyone down in a similar position against the Spurs 3 nights ago, but that does not mean that we should not roster someone who is averaging 1.25 DK points per minute this season just because he was quiet in 1-2 games, especially when he is priced at 4k!

    Honorable Mentions: Steph Curry ($10,500), Devin Booker ($8,300), Kemba Walker ($6,100), Jose Alverado ($3,000)
