SuperDraft is one of the hottest platforms in the market for DFS players. SuperDraft offers a unique twist on your traditional DFS experience with game modes like “Multiplier” and “Super 15.”
This daily article will focus on daily value plays from SuperDraft’s exclusive Multiplier game mode. By eliminating the traditional salary cap. structure and providing a points multiplier for every player on the slate, there is almost limitless flexibility when building lineups on SuperDraft. You can load up on all the studs, but their point multipliers will be low. You can balance those plays out with some long shots that could score up to 2x their fantasy points to vault you to the top of the leaderboards.
With five games on Tuesday’s slate, let’s get into some of the score multiplier plays over on SuperDraft.
Alec Burks, New York Knicks (1.65x score multiplier)
Well, the upcoming chapter of the Tom Thibodeau-coached Knicks is going to be an interesting one. Thibs has decided that starting no point guards is the best route forward for his squad, and Burks will slot in as the de facto PG in the first five. His multiplier did come down a bit from where it was last time out against the Hawks, but there’s still a lot of merit in having Burks as a priority on SuperDraft. We’ll need to get news on Derrick Rose, who is currently questionable with a sprained ankle, before we fully push all our chips in on Burks. Without Rose against the Hawks Burks played 39 minutes and had a 27.8% usage rate. He’s always been near a fantasy-point-per-minute producer in his 10-year career, so if Rose sits again, we should expect a similar minutes load for Burks against Brooklyn.
Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies (1.7x)
There’s a lot of high multiplier attractive options on this shortened NBA slate. That’s what you get with the whirlwind of shifting NBA rotations, injuries, and rampant non-COVID-19 illnesses popping up across the league. With Morant out for the foreseeable future, the Grizzlies will turn to Tyus Jones at the point guard position. A grizzled (heh-heh) veteran at this point of his seven-year career, Jones isn’t quite the fantasy producer that Burks has been, but it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a game in him that we could end up needing to take down a tournament at his 1.7x multiplier. With Tuesday’s game against the Raptors expected to stay close (the Grizzlies are currently 3.5-point road underdogs), we should expect near 30 minutes from Jones in what is a good matchup. He’s not an absolute must in one lineup given the wealth of “star” options at lower multipliers, but I have a lot of interest in getting Memphis exposure here and Jones provides a high ceiling with his elevated multiplier.
Dillon Brooks, Memphis Grizzlies (1.4x)
Back to Memphis to kick off the forward position, and I’m going right back to Brooks, who I talked about a ton on the Sunday afternoon stream at FTN Daily. The former Oregon Duck quietly has one of the quickest triggers in the league, evidenced by his 111 shot attempts in just 171 minutes through his seven games this season. He has a 32.6% usage rate in those seven games, a number I expect to increase slightly with Morant out (Brooks was at 34.9% Sunday). The Grizzlies absolutely decimated the Kings on Sunday, which kept the minutes down for all their main rotation players. Brooks went for 21/6/1 with two steals for good measure in just 21 minutes, and while he may not have quite the same type of explosiveness from a stat perspective, we don’t need him to score a real point per minute to get on top of this multiplier. I love getting to Brooks on this slate and he’s my favorite Memphis player to target if I can only choose one.
Precious Achiuwa, Toronto Raptors (1.75x)
It’s been a while since we were four players deep into this article without mentioning a guy with a multiplier at or near the floor, but the value trend continues with the Raptors second-year center. Khem Birch and OG Anunoby remain out for Toronto, giving us another opportunity to roster Achiuwa with a minutes expectation in the mid 30s. Like Tyus Jones this isn’t a must-play for me in one lineup, but I still have some significant interest in Achiuwa given the minutes and multiplier upside he brings to this short slate.
Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers (1x)
Here’s our first All-Star caliber player of the day. While you should by no means ignore the other floor-area multiplier players like Steph Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and James Harden (especially if building multiple lineups), the shallow nature of the center position on SuperDraft Tuesday makes me think that the Brow is the most important guy to roster in that range on this slate. While the three Lakers stars have leeched off each other’s production when they’re all healthy, it’s hard for me to ignore the matchup and upside combo of Davis when just looking at center here. The Kings (like a lot of bottom feeding-franchises) don’t have a single player with a hope of stopping Davis from a matchup perspective, and the abhorrently average Lakers should have to play their studs big minutes to come away with a win here as they are just four-point road favorites. I’m a fan of rostering the floor/ceiling combo that the Brow brings to your center position on this slate, and mixing in some higher multiplier plays at guard and forward as described above.
Jusuf Nurkic, Portland Trail Blazers (1.35x)
If you want to take a larger risk at center, look no further than Portland’s man-in-the-middle Jusuf Nurkic. New head coach Chauncey Billups may have been known as Mr. Big Shot during his playing days, but Mr. Big Minutes is not a nickname that will be catching on anytime soon in his young coaching career. Nurkic, a notoriously great fantasy producer, has been seeing his minutes not only limited but damn near impossible to project on a nightly basis. Over the last seven games, Nurkic’s minutes have ranged from 18 to 32, with both ends of those extremes coming in what ended up finishing as four-point margins when the games were over. The matchup against the thin and undersized Detroit frontcourt is quite tasty on paper, but with the minutes so uncertain it’s hard to make Nurkic a priority in one lineup even with his 1.35x multiplier. I like taking shots on Nurkic in tournaments if I’m running multiple lineups, or if your guard and forward positions project to be too chalky.
