DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, 2018 Rising Stars Challenge

With an over-under of 301 and a game-time of 40 minutes, the NBA Rising Stars Challenge is most likely going to be a lot of guys running up and down the court firing at will! Last year both teams shot around 60% from the floor, with nearly half of the shots coming from the three point line. That means both teams shot upwards of 75% from 2!

John Collins (5700 DK, 10000 FD) and Jayson Tatum (7000 DK, 10500 FD): The only two guys on Team USA that play PF or C regularly in the NBA are Kyle Kuzma and John Collins. I’m expecting them to split the minutes at center in this game, with traditional small forwards like Tatum and Taurean Prince moving to the PF spot. Since Tatum is having the better season of the two so far, I expect him to start and get a majority of the minutes. Although Kuzma has far exceeded expectations, Collins has so far had a stronger rookie campaign, so I expect him to get the start for that reason and because of the matchup vs Embiid on Team World.

Collins and Tatum are among the lower priced players in the pool, but I think their roles on the team will be among the more prominent in this game. They will be the first two I’m putting in my lineups on both sites!

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing [email protected].
