Shribezy’s Cash Game Breakdown
Favorite Value Options
Thon Maker – $3100 DK ONLY
This definitely makes me nervous but the fact that the Sixers are dead last in the league in defensive efficiency over the past two weeks eases some of my concerns. Maker should play at least 20 minutes tonight with Henson out and is super cheap. $4000 on FanDuel + position scarcity make him a DraftKings only play for me tonight.
Maxi Kleber – $4800 DK $4000 FD
Porzingis is going to sit in this one on the second night of a back to back so we know what to do here! The absence of Willie Caulie-Stein should also help secure more minutes for Kleber, who is about a point per minute player with no KP on the court. He should see at least 30 minutes tonight.
Other Value Options: Tony Bradley, Richaun Holmes, RJ Barrett (FD), Nemanja Bjelica (FD)
Favorite Mid-Range Options
D’Aaron Fox – $7800 DK $7800 FD
This is the perfect type of paced up matchup for Fox to thrive in. The Kings have a total 6.75 points above their season average and are projected to score the third most points on the slate. Pace up spots are ones we want to target for cash. Fox fits the mold perfectly tonight at a very favorable price.
Julius Randle – $7800 DK $7600 FD
Randle was my highest owned guy last night in tournaments and I played him in my cash lineup. He fouled out with only 26 DK points. Not to mention, the team started off like complete shit and Mike Miller benched his starters 3 minutes into the game and sat them for the rest of the quarter. Randle should be nice and fresh for a cake matchup with the Hawks. It helps that Vegas has the Knicks pegged to score 8 points above their season average tonight.
Other Mid-Range Options: Elfrid Payton, Jimmy Butler, Kevin Huerter, Mitchell Robinson
Favorite Spend-Up Options
Luka Doncic – $11000 DK $11200 FD
First things first, Porzingis is out. But even if he was in tonight, he’d still be written up as one of my two favorite spend up options tonight as Denver has looked completely discombobulated defensively. They nearly lost to the Bucks G-League roster the other night AT HOME. Anyways, I don’t need to convince you why Luka is the play of the night.
Trae Young – $10400 DK $10000 FD
Juicy matchup for the Hawks tonight as they have the highest projected total on tonight’s slate. Their projected total is 6.75 points above their season average. Also, Trae Young’s two games vs the Knicks this year:
- 48 points, 1 rebound, 13 assists, 2 steals (73.8 DK points)
- 42 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists (61 DK points)
SIGN ME UP! I think it’s fairly easy to get Young and Luka in your lineup tonight on DraftKings, especially if Rudy Gobert misses and we get to play Tony Bradley with Maker.
