Point Guard

Delon Wright - Detroit Pistons (vs. San Antonio Spurs)

Wright sits atop our optimal lineup for tonight’s eight-game slate. He’s projected for 32.8 DK points at a salary of $5,700. The Spurs are allowing the fifth-highest three-point percentage in the league at 38.1 percent. San Antonio also allows their opponents to shoot 46.7 percent from the field. With Dennis Smith Jr. still out, Wright will continue to see increased minutes and usage. The Pistons are slight underdogs (+2 points) with a 212 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other PG Option: Jrue Holiday - Milwaukee Bucks (vs. Washington Wizards)

Shooting Guard

Rodney McGruder - Detroit Pistons (vs. San Antonio Spurs)

More of a chalky play now, but still worth the mention. McGruder last played on March 13th against the Brooklyn Nets totaling 27.25 DK points over 28 minutes on the court. McGruder is near minimum salary around the industry. Considering his projected minutes and usage, paired with the facts that Smith is still hurt and Mykhailiuk has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, lock in McGruder at low salaries on Draftkings, YahooSports, and FanDuel.

Other SG Option: Reggie Bullock - New York Knicks (vs. Brooklyn Nets)

Small Forward

Keldon Johnson - San Antonio Spurs (vs. Detroit Pistons)

DeMar DeRozen has been confirmed out for tonight’s matchup against the Pistons. DeRozen accounts for a significant portion of San Antonio’s overall offense. Who’s most likely going to pick up the slack? Players like Johnson, Dejounte Murray, and even Jakob Poeltl will see massive usage increases (at valuable salaries). The Pistons are allowing 111.4 points per game this season but where are they most vulnerable? I don’t think there’s one answer to this. Murray tends to play better running the point. Johnson and Poeltl perform best as role players, so if everything goes to plan, all of the aforementioned options in San Antonio should reach value against a defensively average Pistons squad (at best). The Spurs are currently - 2 point favorites with a 211.5 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other SF Options: R.J. Barrett - New York Knicks (vs. Brooklyn Nets)

Power Forward

Giannis Antetokounmpo - Milwaukee Bucks (vs. Washington Wizards)

Onto the big boys, Giannis and Jokic are our top projected producers of the slate. The Greek Freak is projected for 58.1 DK points at a salary of $11,100. The Bucks are favored by 8.5 points with a 242.5 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com. The Bucks recently beat the Wizards by a hair. The Wizards did not have Beal in this matchup. Tonight, I fully expect Giannis to guide the Bucks on the road to an easy win against the Washington Wizards.

Other PF Option: Draymond Green - Golden State Warriors (vs. Los Angeles Lakers)

Center

Nikola Jokic - Denver Nuggets (vs. Indiana Pacers)

Jokic will face off against Turner, Sabonis, and the Indiana Pacers. The NBC Sports Edge Optimizer has Jokic projected for 57.4 DK points at a salary of $11,000. The Pacers are allowing 5.3 blocks per game, 7.4 blocks per game, and 25.8 assists per game. This adds up to one heck of a potential ceiling for The Joker tonight. The Nuggets are 4.5 point favorites with a 223.5 O/U Courtesy of Pointsbet.com.

Other C Option: Nerlens Noel - New York Knicks (vs. Brooklyn Nets)
