NBA DFS Showdown Slate Picks
Steph has been back for four games now and he looks like his old self. Curry hasn't shot under 38% from 3-point range in any game since returning while shooting double-digit attempts in three of the four games. He also hasn't scored fewer than 42 fantasy points in any game either. I do like him as a captain play tonight but he is $600 more than Devin Booker.
Booker has been great over his past five games scoring at least 50 fantasy points each, including two games with 60. His ceiling is probably higher than Curry's, and he is cheaper on the slate. I slightly lean toward Devin Booker as my top captain play tonight.
I like the matchup for Ayton tonight if the Warriors decide to play a little smaller tonight. In the two previous matchups, he scored 41 fantasy points and 23 against the Warriors. If he puts up 40+ in this one and you have him as your captain with how cheap he is your roster could be stacked elsewhere. That is just a thought if you are feeling wild tonight.
Where has this Chris Paul been all season? At times this season, he has looked bad and possibly washed. But over his past two games, he is feeling like his old self scoring 46 and 50 fantasy points. He had 16 and nine assists in those two games, and when you have Devin Booker he makes those assist numbers skyrocket, so he should flirt with double-digit assists each night.
With Steph back in the lineup it really caps Klay's ceiling. He hasn't scored over 40 fantasy points in his last five games, but also has only scored fewer than 30 once during that span. If you want a guy who will give that production for $8,600 then go for it, and you might get luck with him going off, that is just hard to predict.
Draymond has been very solid over his past four games with Steph back in the lineup. Draymond gets to settle back into a distributor role. He has at least 7 assists in his last three games. Those numbers most likely will stay that high as long as the Warriors have all these solid shooters around him. He could also throw you a double-digit rebounding game as he did in his last game grabbing 13 boards.
I'm not sure I love Looney in this one, but there aren't many more appealing options here. I guess I could have put Poole here but I do not want to pay $7,600 for maybe 25 points with DiVincenzo taking some of his minutes. I would rather pay $6,200. Kuminga is questionable tonight, and if he doesn't play Looney will have to play extended minutes tonight. He also might have to just because it is the best matchup against Ayton tonight anyways. I think Looney will be a solid play once again.
Terrence Ross is an obvious play for me tonight. He is playing around 23 minutes a night in his last two and scored 25, and 36 fantasy points. Ross is a microwave off the bench right now and is an important piece of this offense with Kevin Durant out. His price is outstanding.
I didn't really want to put another dart throw here because I do not like the options. However, Craig does play a solid amount of minutes and will give you 15-20 fantasy points if he catches fire from behind the arc.
