DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Thursday 2/22

Coming back from the All-Star break there is some uncertainty about how rotations around the league will change.  Information is often unreliable like Vucevic and Gordon not playing “heavy minutes” today, and sometimes it’s intended to be deceiving!  Another person on my radar is Frank Mason for the Kings, who will probably start, but after missing so many games, how much will he play?

Emmanuel Mudiay (4400 DK, 4600 FD) – Reports came out that Mudiay practiced with the starters over the ASB. That’s enough info for me to feel confident he will be starting. I think Jarrett Jack will fall out of the rotation probably, with Ntilikina picking up backup PG and SG minutes. That leaves a lot of minutes for Mudiay. Mudiay’s price is way too low for a starter with his level of production, so I think he’s a great play today. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 27.4%, FD 31.65%.

Lou Williams (6900 DK, 7000 FD) – With Avery Bradley sidelined for this game and Ty Wallace starting, I feel like Williams will get a few more minutes tonight compared to the post trade deadline games. An uptempo matchup with the Warriors is the perfect scenario for Williams to light up the box score. Probability of top 3 value: DK 27.2%, FD 31.5%.

D’Angelo Russell (5600 DK, 6100 FD) – At this point it’s unclear whether or not Russell will reclaim his starting role now that he’s worked his way back from injury. Over his last few games, he has averaged slightly less than 28 MPG. Averaging over a fantasy point per minute for the season, his price hasn’t risen enough to account for his increased minutes and high production. Probability of top 3 value: DK 34.8%, FD 27.85%.

Alex Baker
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].
