Draft Kings

Quentin Grimes, SG, NYK ($3,000) – Grimes gets another start tonight with RJ Barrett out with an unnecessary ankle injury (there was no need for him to be on the court in garbage time last week) and he should get a high workload once again. The rookie made six of 10 shots on Saturday, including five three-pointers, and filled out the box score with four rebounds and three assists. Despite that, Grimes is still minimum priced despite returning almost 12x value against Portland. 

Udoka Azubuike, C, UTA ($4,000) – With Rudy Gobert dealing with a calf injury, Azubuike continues to carve out a solid role of around 20 to 25 minutes of playing time as of late. It’s a favorable matchup against Houston tonight, and the Jazz have no reason to rush Gobert back either which ultimately benefits Azubuike. In his last five games, Azubuike has averaged a solid 9.6 points while shooting 74% from the field and grabbing 9.4 rebounds per game in what is an easily duplicated performance against the rockets. 

Fan Duel

Tre Mann, PG, OKC ($3,800) – Over his last three games, Mann has made just four of his last 25 shots, so can it really get much worse for him? I’m not sure that I really want to find out the answer to that question but it’s a favorable matchup for Mann against the Knicks tonight and someone needs to play in the backcourt and shoot for the Thunder. 

Troy Brown Jr, SG, CHI ($3,600) – For better or worse, let’s continue on the same path with Brown. It doesn’t get much cheaper here, and that is especially the case considering Brown will be starting for Chicago tonight and playing around 25 minutes. After missing all nine of his shots on Saturday, it can only go up from here, but the 11 rebounds Brown grabbed on Saturday helped to at least make not a completely lost cause. All Brown needs to do is make a few shots, and he should surpass a 5x return. 


Corey Kispert, SG, WAS ($10) – With Bradley Beal out for the year, new addition Kristaps Porzingas still injured, and Washington shorthanded after selling at the trade deadline, Kispert finds himself in the starting lineup. Kispert scored 20 points on Saturday for the second time in his last three games while also adding six assists and three rebounds. Getting Kispert at minimum price provides a great deal of lineup flexibility and we can plan on 30 minutes of playing time and double digit shot attempts once again. 

Grayson Allen, SG, MIL ($12) – After the trade of Donte DiVincenzo and the injury to Pat Connaughton, Allen should take on a larger role over the next few weeks for Milwaukee. Depending on the night, Allen generally plays between 25 and 35 minutes, and tonight I would expect to see him closer to the higher end of that range. Allen should take close to 10 shots a game, and double figures in scoring shouldn’t be too far behind.
