NowWe have a nice eight-game slate on this beautiful Tuesday night. But we are here to concentrate on the DFS Showdown slate between the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings. This game features a great primetime point guard matchup with Stephen Curry and De'Aaron Fox squaring off. Plus, Draymond Green is coming back from suspension, and looking to make life tough for Domantas Sabonis as he did last year in the playoffs.

NBA DFS Showdown CPT/MVP Top Plays

Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings

You can make a case for all three of these guys I have laid out for you. Starting with Sabonis who probably has the highest floor on the slate. Sabonis is just a rebounding machine and is almost guaranteed a double-double. Sabonis has only had three games this season in which he recorded a double-double. He also plays a lot of minutes averaging over 35 minutes per game, while scoring over 43 fantasy points in four of them. Sabonis is the most expensive, but it comes with safety. With the amount of Value on this slate, I think you can afford to pay up for him tonight.

De'Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings

Now with De'Aaron Fox, he has likely the highest ceiling on the slate. He has the second-highest usage rate on this slate and we just saw him blow. Swiper is coming off a 36-point, 12-assist, seven-rebound game, finishing with 66 fantasy points. That was his second game in his last five going over 60 fantasy points and smashing his value. I have no issue stacking Sabonis and Fox in this one if you can afford them both.

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors

Then there is Chef Curry, who is the man with the highest usage rate on the slate. He ranks ninth in the league in usage rate this season, and when he is hitting his shot, he is deadly. He is also cheaper than Fox, and Sabonis. He is coming off a fifty-point fantasy performance and he gets his partner in crime Draymond Green back tonight. I look for Curry to have another big night in this one, and if you want to pay down as captain, Curry is the best option. 

NBA DFS Showdown UTIL Top Plays

Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors

Draymond Green is back after serving his five-game suspension. I expect him to come out and play like his hair is on fire in a prime-time game. In Green's four games prior to the suspension, he finished with at least seven assists in three of them giving him a solid floor each night. With Green priced under 7K on DraftKings tonight, I can see him going over 30 fantasy points and going 5x over his value.

Malik Monk, Sacramento Kings

Monk is nicely priced tonight in my opinion sitting at $6,200. We love the volume of attempts he is getting when he gets in the game. He has taken at least six three-point attempts in his last five games, along with at least five assists in three of those games as well. These teams rank 12th and 13th in the NBA in pace this season, and Monk loves his transition three-point attempts. If Monk gets hot tonight from behind the arc, he could have a big night.

Dario Saric, Golden State Warriors

With Draymond Green coming back tonight I would expect Saric to be lower-rostered, and give your lineup some leverage. He has been fantastic with Draymond out. Saric has gone over 30 fantasy points points in three straight games and hasn't played more than 26 minutes. With how well he has played I do not expect him to lose much time, and can see him playing around 20-23 minutes tonight. 

Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings

After an abysmal start to the DFS season for Harrison Barnes, he has emerged with Keegan Murray being out. Over his last four games, he has played over 30 minutes and has scored at least 24 fantasy points in each. His price is still just $5,200 which seems like a miss-price with Keegan Murray being once again listed as doubtful. 

NBA DFS Showdown Value Plays

Trey Lyles, Sacramento Kings

Since Lyles has come back from injury in his last two games he is averaging 23 minutes and just over 20 fantasy points per game. He has always been a fantasy points-per-minute stud throughout his career so I would expect his efficiency to get a bit better. The big man has also gotten up at least 13 three-pointers in each game as well. You love to see that type of volume from a player who is playing around 20 minutes a night. Being priced at just $4,400, he is a smash value in my opinion.

Brandin Podziemski, Golden State Warriors

Podz is coming off his worst game since being inserted into the rotation. His shot just would not fall going 0-5 from the field and got pulled after only 12 minutes. That was the least amount of minutes he had played in his last six games. That could help his ownership tonight, and swing it in our favor. In a decently-paced game tonight I would expect Podziemski to bounce back in this one, and land somewhere between 15-20 fantasy points.

Chris Duarte, Sacramento Kings

I am going to start out by saying this is gross. But Chris Duarte will likely start again for the injured Keegan Murray. He just hasn't done anything in his previous three starts besides getting in some cardio playing 20 and 22 minutes. He is just 4K on DraftKings, and maybe he breaks out in a solid game environment against the warriors. But once again, I don't love it, but the price is nice.
