We have a four-game NBA DFS slate on SuperDraft Thursday. Below, we’ll dive in and break down our three top plays of the slate.
Hamidou Diallo, Detroit Pistons (Shooting Guard | 1.55x Score Multiplier)
Hamidou Diallo is going to be in a great position once again, as the Detroit Pistons face off with the Memphis Grizzlies. He’s currently averaging 21.5 minutes per game but has exceeded that average in his past seven contests. While he hasn’t been the best scorer, in his past five games he has put up 25 points or more in three of them. Now he gets the Memphis defense that is allowing 22.4 points to opposing guards. Not only that, but they also allow six rebounds and five assists per game to the position, which is only going to give Diallo a bigger boost.
Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors (Power Forward | 1.35x)
On any slate bigger than four games, I would avoid Draymond Green. With a small slate like tonight’s, I want a piece of him. He’s currently averaging nine points, seven rebounds and seven assists per game in just over 30 minutes. He may not be a heavy scorer for the Warriors, but he constantly puts up double-digit assist and rebounding numbers. Averaging nearly a double-double without scoring, Green will bring in lower ownership over the other forwards on tonight’s slate.
Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns (Point Guard | 1.3x)
Chris Paul is currently averaging a double-double on the season with 14.1 points and 10.1 assists per game. He’ll be facing off against the Los Angeles Clippers, and using the FTNDaily DvP tool, Paul gets a boost as a passer versus the Clippers. In his last five games, he has gone above the 10-assist mark three times with 13 versus Memphis, 16 versus Charlotte and 15 versus New Orleans. Paul is in another amazing spot, as the Clippers allow opposing point guards to average 22.8 points, 7.3 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game.
