Marc Gasol (7200 FD only) – In an up-pace game against the defensively challenged Suns, Gasol will be leaned on heavily to make up for Tyreke’s absence. He’s also in line to get few more minutes with backup Deyonta Davis sidelined. Given his pricing on FanDuel, the situation is way to juicy to pass up. DraftKings, unfortunately, seems to have accounted for these factors in his salary, so steer clear. Probability of top-3 positional value: 43.7% FD only.
Clint Capela (6900 DK, 7700 FD) – There’s some risk here. Capela sat out the last game with an illness, so it’s possible he gets winded early and plays less than expected. But if he gets his usual complement of minutes, which is what I anticipate, the upside is huge in light of the 117+ implied team total. Probability of top-3 positional value: 21.6% DK, 24.7% FD.
Draymond Green (7200 DK, 7600 FD) – The Warriors tie the Rockets for the highest implied team total of the night and there are decent plays across this team, including Steph. But there’s an easy tiebreaker here for me, since this is what happened the last time these two teams met: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrpZJ8Vr3aA. Trust me, Draymond will be pumped. Probability of top-3 positional value: 18.2% DK, 19.15% FD.
