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 five games. He also hasn't scored fewer than 38 fantasy points in any game either. I do like him as a captain play tonight, but he is just so much more expensive than Kawhi. I get it if you want to pivot away from him because of that.
I am pretty baffled that Curry is $1,500 more than Kawhi Leonard on the slate tonight. Especially since Kawhi has scored at least 49 points in three consecutive games. With Andrew Wiggins out tonight, that takes the Warriors best defender off the floor which opens the door for Leonard to have a big game tonight. With the price difference between him and Curry, I slightly lean Kawhi's way.
George is another solid play once again tonight, he just doesn't quite have the floor that Leonard and Curry possess each night. There will be some games in which he only scores around 25 fantasy points a night, and you will not see that from Kawhi, or Curry for the most part. With him only being $300 less than Leonard, Kawhi is the obvious play over him.
It had been a while since we saw Klay completely blow up in a game and that finally happened. He and Curry got going early from behind the arc, and Klay ended up shooting 8-14 from three-point range. He finished with 38 points and 51 fantasy points. Klay did score 47 fantasy points the last time these two teams met up, but that was without Curry in the lineup. Klay is still a solid play tonight.
Draymond has been very solid over his past five games with Steph back in the lineup. Draymond gets to settle back into a distributor role. He has at least 7 assists in three of his past four games. Those numbers most likely will stay that high as long as the Warriors have all these solid shooters around him. He could also give you solid rebounding numbers where he is averaging 6.6 over his past five games.
I am happy I ended up putting Looney in this article on Monday because Looney balled out. He finished with 38 fantasy points posting a line of nine points, ten rebounds, and five assists. That was the second game in a row that Looney has grabbed double-digit boards. He once again is the best matchup for the two bigs that the Clippers trot out there. Looney should once again see close to 30 minutes tonight, and I will be playing him.
Gordan is very cheap sitting under $5,000 on DraftKings and he plays at least 25 minutes a night. It's pretty simple with him, if he knocks down shots he will have a solid fantasy night. The problem is if he has an off-shooting night he doesn't do a ton else in the stats sheet. He is a fine play at his price tonight.
There aren't a ton of options for dart throws tonight so Morris it is. Unfortunately, he just doesn't have a ton of upside. He has only scored 20 fantasy points once in his last eight games. The upside is that he plays 20+ minutes so there is a chance for him to produce, he just needs too.
Mann is another guy who we are hoping produces tonight with the 22+ minutes he will receive off the bench. We could see him get a little longer run tonight because he is the better defensive option to put on Curry over Russell Westbrook. If you come away with 20+ points from Mann tonight, you should be happy, and it is possible.
