Russell Westbrook $11000
When RWB is on the slate, you need to just lock him in and move on. He’s in a great matchup against a Knicks team that has Ramon Sessions matching up against him. The Vegas game total is 215 with the Thunder favored by 12 points. RWB has had a triple double the last two games against the Knicks. The only risk with him is a blowout and him sitting out most of the fourth quarter. Don’t get cute and lock him in your contests..
DeMar DeRozan $8300
Another situation where a team shouldn’t have a defensive answer to stop their opponent’s top scorer. DeMar DeRozan is against the Bulls tonight in the Raptors home opener. DeRozan’s price is a lock to hit 5x against a weak back court. Just like the case above with RWB, DeRozan’s only risk is a high point spread that could turn this game into a blowout.
? Low-Owned ?
Lauri Markkanen $5600
In a small slate like tonight, I think Markkanen gets over looked with folks playing Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony, Serge Ibaka and even Julius Randle. Markkanen is in that zone between some stars and most casual fans won’t know about the rookie. Draftkings hasn’t even added his picture! If you’re reading this, you are already ahead of the game. Markkanen should pull big minutes, thanks to Punch-Gate with Mirotic and Portis out, upward to 30 minutes as the starting PF. Last year, he was a lethal scoring option at Arizona and Bulls will rely on their first round pick early on.
Tim Hardaway Jr. $5800
The Knicks paid this man a ton of cash in the off-season and tonight he should be showcased. He had a 26% usage rate in the preseason and he’s going to be primary scoring option with Carmelo Anthony gone. He averaged 14.5 PPG last season has a role player. If you feel the Knicks can keep it close, you should get Hardaway at very low ownership.
