Josh Engleman



These Slam Dunk picks come directly from the lineups of the #1 player in DFS, Awesemo. Follow him on Twitter for more.

Kyle Lowry
DK: $7200 | Fpts: A | Value: A
FD: $7300 | Fpts: B | Value: A

DeMar DeRozan
DK: $7400 | Fpts: A | Value: A
FD: $7400 | Fpts: A | Value: A

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are both slam dunks tonight versus the Wizards, as the Raptors have the highest implied total of the night. Lowry and DeRozan have yet to see the price increase to account for their jump in minutes, which should be in the mid 30’s. Put their Game 1 performance in the rear view mirror. The boys from Toronto are excellent plays.

Otto Porter
DK: $5400 | Fpts: C | Value: A
FD: $5600 | Fpts: B | Value: A

Otto Porter is listed with his second lowest price of the season, which makes him a nice source of value on a limited playoff slate. The Wizards have a reasonable implied total, which is barely (3 points) below their season average. On a day where value is hard to find, Porter provides an outlet at a position that is usually difficult to fill outside of the high end.
