These Slam Dunk picks come straight from the beautiful mind of #1 DFS player in the world Awesemo and consist of players he’s personally looking most heavily at rostering tonight. Follow him @AwesemoDFS.
James Harden (11600 DK, 11800 FD)
“With Chris Paul’s injury, currently projected as unlikely to play, James Harden will take on a heavier workload, primarily in the form of increased usage and assists. Whether it’s a blowout or the Pistons keep it close, Harden should be a lock to hit value.”
Mario Hezonja (4700 DK, 4500 FD)
“With the glut of wing injuries for the Orlando Magic and a game at a pace that’ll benefit a high octane player, Mario Hezonja looks like he’ll have a great chance to exceed value at a price point that will help you afford a Harden or Anthony Davis.”
Guillermo Hernangomez (3400 DK, 4000 FD) or Deyonta Davis (3300 DK, 3800 FD)
“This is something of a conditional ‘if/then’ play to help you squeeze the value you need out of this particular slate. I would roster Guillermo Hernangomez if Cody Zeller is ruled out since Dwight Howard is suspended for tonight’s game. But if Zeller is ruled in, limiting the minute potential for Hernangomez, the Grizzlies’ Deyonta Davis seems like a better option to accomplish the same goal with Marc Gasol out.”
