DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Sunday 3/11

Alex Baker




Chris Paul (7800 DK, 8200 FD) and Eric Gordon (5100 DK, 5600 FD) – With James Harden doubtful for tonight’s game, there will be plenty of minutes and usage to go around to the Houston regulars. I expect Gordon and Paul to benefit the most as the next highest usage players on the Rockets. Probability of top 3 positional value: Paul 48% DK, 56% FD. Gordon 35.1% DK, 35% FD)

Jeff Green (3600 DK, 3600 FD) and Jordan Clarkson (5300 DK, 4200 FD) – With Rodeney Hood and Cedi Osman out for tonight’s game, I expect the Cavaliers to go with a 9 man rotation with either Jose Calderon or John Holland taking some of the guard minutes. With a good matchup versus the Lakers, I expect Clarkson to shine not because of his revenge narrative but because of increased wing minutes. Jeff Green is underpriced because he will likely see more PF minutes with Tristan Thompson out. Probability of top 3 positional value: Green 22.7% DK, 35.15% FD. Clarkson: 15.7% DK, 50.55% FD.

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].
