• Today’s DFS Delivery brought to you by David Menkov (@Dmenk33 on Twitter)

    DFS delivery time on this sunny spring Wednesday afternoon. We have ourselves a juicy 12-game slate after a somewhat quiet Tuesday night slate. There are many games featuring close spreads, making tonight a fantastic opportunity to attack players across the board. 

    We have 10 out of 12 games featuring totals over 220, allowing for some high scoring DFS action. The big question is whether the 60-point streak will continue on tonight’s card. I am going to dissect some of my favorite players who are due for big time performances and others who may be overlooked based on their general salary and game by game expectations. I will also be looking at some studs battling it out at home in Brooklyn, so please check in on the injury reports as we approach closer to gametime. 

    Player Tiers

    Expensive Tier

    Luka Doncic ($11,500) – Luka is one of the key guys that I am looking at in the high priced portion of the pricing market due to the primetime nature of this game. Going up against Brooklyn on the road, this is the type of game where we can anticipate a potential triple-double given his developing chemistry with Dinwiddie in the backcourt. This game should stay close, which should provide plenty of upside from a minutes perspective.  

    Kevin Durant ($10,900) – Coming off a relatively quiet game the night before, Durant is working with a potential primetime scoring showdown with Doncic on the other side of the ball. After taking a backseat to Irving’s 60 point game, I expect Durant to push for 40+ points in this game, making him a prime target at a shade under $11K in salary. 

    Trae Young ($10,300 – Trae Young has been on an absolute tear in recent games, especially with John Collins missing time. He is providing scoring and assists at an alarming rate over his last 5 games. He should have a great matchup against the Hornets’ porous defense making him a potentially low owned tournament winner. 

    Devin Booker ($9,500) – Coming off back-to-back 50-point fantasy efforts, look for Booker to continue and carry the offensive load for the Suns. A potential blowout may keep his ownership low tonight, making him a high upside and high risk target. 

    Darius Garland ($9,000) – Another player in a great spot when it comes to the matchup, especially with the potential news that Embiid may be out of commission due to a back injury. Garland should be able to score and drive to the rim with relative ease, in a likely battle against the 76ers. With the return of LeVert many people may be led astray when it comes to adding him to lineups, but I will continue to ride the hot hand for this young guard. 

    Mid-Tier

    Scottie Barnes ($7,900) – As the rookie of the year race heats up, Barnes is making a statement over his last handful of games. While Evan Mobley is still the hands down favorite, Barnes has been showing a well-rounded game recently, putting up high scoring, rebounding and defensive numbers across the board. I am targeting Barnes here since he has a good matchup against the Clippers on the road. 

    Jordan Poole ($6,400) – Poole has been getting consistent minutes over his last few games and is not letting the increased leash go to waste. Poole has been playing inspired basketball recently, especially feeding off Thompson and Curry as the 3rd leading scorer often in games. At a price tag less than the aforementioned duo, add Poole into lineups with confidence in what should be a close game throughout. 

    Bruce Brown ($5,200) – Coming off back to back 34-fantasy point performances, Brown is in a great spot to continue to provide elite defense as well as some scoring punch to boot.

    Immanuel Quickley ($5,100) – This is a somewhat risky play in the $5k range, but I have some thought behind it as well. The Blazers do not play any defense, and this game is likely to stay close before the Knicks pull away in the 4th quarter. Quickley is coming off the bench but is still seeing plenty of minutes, making him a fantastic option to consider as a tournament play. 

    Value

    CJ Elleby ($4,600) – The Trail Blazers are a fascinating team, and that starts with their young guard Elleby who is finding a niche as a potential 6th man option off the bench one day. Coming off a game where he had 13 rebounds and 5 assists, his playmaking is an unheralded key principle in growing his potential as he develops this season. From a DFS perspective, spending only $4,600 is plenty for a potential reward here. 

    Donte DiVincenzo ($4,500) – Now that DiVincenzo is starting for the Kings, he provides the team with some great steals and scoring opportunities. Priced at under $5K despite a potential blowout scenario, I love him here. 

    Onyeka Okongwu ($3,900) – Without John Collins, Okongwu has been getting additional minutes off the bench, I expect that trend to continue in what should be a great game with plenty of scoring. He should flirt with a double-double off the bench. 

    Honorable Mentions: Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,700), Jayson Tatum ($10,000), De’Aaron Fox ($9,400), Evan Mobley ($7,900), and Keldon Johnson ($6,400)
