DeAndre Jordan Headlines The DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks For 3/21

These picks come personally from the #1 DFS player in the world, Awesemo. Follow him on Twitter for more of his thoughts. For an extended slate breakdown, check out our full-slate breakdown, the Switch and Hedge, coming up in a little bit.

DeAndre Jordan

At the DraftKings Fantasy Basketball Championship, DeAndre expressed a lot of interest in understanding how fantasy basketball works, including the scoring of each player. I have a feeling that he’ll have a little bit of extra motivation today to notch a double-double. Since Blake Griffin was traded, DeAndre Jordan has increased his scoring and rebounding numbers. With the Clippers projected to score about their average points and his pricing being fair for his season averages, that means he’s underpriced in his new role

Kevin Love

Normally Love is a 7k-8k player, and tonight he’s priced at 6400 on DraftKings. This play comes down to how slowly you think the Cavs will ease Love back into action. Given that he played 25 minutes in his first game back, I’m expecting him to get close to his normal workload today, which makes him an easy play on DK.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

In the Hornets regular rotation, Jeremy Lamb replaces MKG, which limits both of their minutes because they’re both solid players. With Batum out, MKG is being rotated with Dwayne Bacon. Although the Hornets showed they like to play Bacon for a solid amount of minutes at the start of the season, I still expect MKG to see a slightly larger share of wing minutes than usual. At his bargain price with a high paced matchup, Kidd-Gilchrist is one of the value plays I’m going to be leaning on tonight.
