Boston Celtics Injuries

Sacramento Kings Injuries

NBA DFS Showdown CPT/MVP Top Plays

Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings

Sabonis has looked so, so good over the last three games and is coming off arguably his best game of the year putting together a 28-point triple-double, which resulted in 68.25 DKP. He’s put up 47+ DKP in three straight games and in four of five overall. Both Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox average 1.39 FP/min this year, but Sabonis is the guy that is much more likely to go out and get us a double and even a triple-double.

Kristaps Porzingis, Boston Celtics

With Jayson Tatum and Al Horford ruled out, Porzingis is off the injury report and is the only Celtic that didn’t play yesterday, so he may have the freshest legs of all, especially after getting yesterday off. Porzingis has averaged 1.41 FP/min and has a 28% USG without Tatum and Horford this season. He has shown a 50 FP ceiling and could have his number called more than ever tonight.

De'Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings

It’s been back-to-back 50+ bombs out of De’Aaron Fox on DraftKings in each of the last two games and he’s been nearly impossible to stop. Boston does have ELITE perimeter defenders in Derrick White and Jrue Holiday but sometimes we overstate individual matchup’s. Fox is averaging 1.39 FP/min and leads the Kings in usage rate as well.

Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics

Brown, to nobody’s surprise, is the Celtics leader in usage rate and is second in FP/min without Jayson Tatum and Al Horford are off the floor. He’s been playing extremely well to begin with averaging 41.2 DKP/game over his last five contests and nearly 50 bombs in back-to-back contests.

NBA DFS Showdown UTIL Top Plays

Derrick White, Boston Celtics

Quite possibly the most underrated player in the league, Derrick White is one of the best two-way players in the game at this point. He scored 50+ DKP last night and took 18 (!!!) three-pointers. He’s nearly a 1.2 FP/min producer with Jayson Tatum and AL Horford off the floor.

Jrue Holiday, Boston Celtics

The usage rate remains pretty low for Holiday despite who’s off the floor, but his FP/min production shoots up the ranks. It’s nearly at 1.1 FP/min without Tatum and Horford. He’s a solid utility play in this spot.

Keegan Murray, Sacramento Kings

Playing Murray with the expectation that he continues to shoot like this could work in your favor because we’ve seen guys who are three-point experts go on multiple game runs where they don’t miss. I just don’t love the price with how much star power is on the board.
