DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Thursday 3/8


Russell Westbrook (11800 DK, 12000 FD) – A matchup for Westbrook versus the Suns is a dream scenario for fantasy production with OKC’s team total more than 10 points higher than their season average. That means that Westbrook’s performance tonight should on average greatly exceed his season averages. His price is adjusted upwards to adjust for that, but with the lack of value point guards, he is the top option on the slate. Probability of top 3 positional value: 27.7% DK, 32.4% FD.

Jamal Crawford (3900 DK, 4300 FD) – With Jimmy Butler, Jamal Crawford has consistently seen minutes in the mid 20’s. His price is low right now because of a recent cold streak which I think will also discourage players from rostering him. With the lack of other value options on today’s slate, he has a great chance of winning people some leagues tonight. Probability of top 3 positional value: 21.7% DK, 26.8% FD.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (3600 DK, 3700 FD) – Although Kidd-Gilchrist’s game log is comically bad, I think he has a great chance to return to form this evening. They are facing the Nets which is always a great up-pace matchup. In addition, his minutes look worse than they should, because he was ejected from Charlotte’s last game near the end of the first half while on pace for more than 30 minutes. Probability of top 3 positional value: 15% DK, 29.1% FD.

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].
