4. Anfernee Simons, Portland Trail Blazers
Simons is projected for 33 DraftKings NBA DFS points and has a goal of 39. He is in the optimal lineup 18% of the time and is playing around 34 minutes. Although it is a tough matchup against the Boston Celtics, it is a competitive game with only a 4-point spread. Simons is just shy of a fantasy point per minute and is projected to score around 20 points on 25% usage. He is expected to provide four assists, three rebounds and possibly a stock. While there is not a lot of value out there just yet, Simons is a mid-tier pick that looks pretty good for the time being.
3. Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies
Jones is projected to score 38 points, with a goal of 41, and is in the optimal lineup 19% of the time. He is point guard eligible and priced at $6,700. In the game against the San Antonio Spurs, he has an amazing spot, as they have a terrible defense. Jones’ price has come down, and he played 33 minutes in the last game, producing 1.15 fantasy points per minute. He had an impressive stat line of 16.5 points, 8.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds, making him a great backup point guard and an incredible starter in this case.
2. Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies
Jackson is projected to score 43 points, with a goal of 44, and is in the optimal lineup 19% of the time. He is power forward and center eligible, giving great flexibility and is priced at $7,300. Jackson plays an average of 31 minutes a night, with more time at the center position, which is a benefit to his stats. He has a good matchup against the San Antonio Spurs, just like Jones, with 26% usage and no Ja Morant. Jackson produces 1.39 fantasy points per minute, with an impressive projected stat line of 21 points, nine rebounds, one assist and 4.3 stocks, including three blocks. Jackson is known to put up stocks like crazy, so don’t be surprised to see an outlier stock day against the Spurs.
1. Desmond Bane, Memphis Grizzlies
Bane is projected to score 43.5 points, with a goal of 45, and is in the optimal lineup 19% of the time. He is shooting guard eligible, priced at $7,400 and plays an average of 33 minutes per night. Bane is the star of the show from a guard perspective, with no Morant around. He produces 1.3 fantasy points per minute and an impressive stat line of 23.5 points, 7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.5 stocks. He has an amazing matchup against the San Antonio Spurs, but pay close attention to those optimal odds, as Bane is competing with Jackson and Jones for a spot in the optimal lineup. While this slate is difficult, those guys are still great plays, but Bane is the No. 1 play.
