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 article will focus on daily 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.
As always with NBA DFS, make sure that you are on top of any late breaking injury news and starting lineup changes. With eleven games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Davion Mitchell (1.5x)
There’s nothing quite like the insanity a late season NBA DFS slate with double digit games on the docket. Even with my daily warning above, I think it’s worth it to say it again, you must be around to react to news if you’re going to play NBA DFS successfully. With that said, let’s dive in. The Kings are going to be in full tank mode for the remainder of the season and they’re using this chance to play their lottery pick from last summer’s draft big minutes down the stretch. Mitchell has averaged 41 minutes per game over the Kings last five while sporting a 25.1% usage rate and 0.94 SuperDraft points per minute. That sample includes his 18.75 SuperDraft point performance against the Celtics on March 18th, which highlights how good he’s been in the other four games (43.3 SuperDraft points per game). His rates don’t jump off the page, but the minutes do and with a matchup against the equally tanking Rockets tonight and his 1.5x multiplier, he’s one of my favorite plays at the guard position as of this writing.
Theo Maledon (1.8x)
We’ll talk a lot about two types of plays as we close out the regular season over the next 12 days, players on tanking teams and those on squads with something to play for. Maledon falls into the former category, and it looks like he’s going to get some extra opportunity to show what he’s got to close out his sophomore NBA season. Maledon has played sparingly for the Thunder this year, but in his 48 appearances for the club he’s averaged 0.82 SuperDraft points per minute with a 20.1% usage rate. But over his last three games Maledon has averaged 34.3 minutes and 40 SuperDraft points per game with a usage rate of 26.3%. He’s become a focal point of the OKC offense with the majority of their normal rotation out for the rest of the season. Maledon is in consideration for me if Tre Mann (currently questionable with a hamstring strain) plays but becomes a lock in any format if Mann misses this one.
Luka Doncic (1x)
We were on Doncic last night as a favorite spend up and he didn’t disappoint in the Mavericks rout of the Lakers with a 34/12/12 triple double, which was good for 74 SuperDraft points. Like I said in yesterday’s article it was only a matter of time before Doncic got back on track with an elite DFS performance, and I think we are in for another one this evening. The Mavericks are in Cleveland tonight to take on a shorthanded Cavaliers team as 2-point road favorites. Dallas will also be without some key pieces, as Spencer Dinwiddie is out on the second half of the back-to-back. Since the All-Star break Doncic is sporting a 37.8% usage rate along with a 39.8% assist percentage and 14.6% rebounding rate. He’s one of the most elite fantasy assets there is in NBA DFS and we should continue to treat him as such. He’s my favorite spend up outside of center on SuperDraft tonight and I don’t have a lean as of this writing if I would prefer him at guard or forward so feel free to slot him in where he makes the most sense for your build.
Kristaps Porzingis (1.3x)
Like Doncic, we were also on Porzingis last night and he did great in the time he did get in what ended up being a blowout. While the minutes haven’t been in the top tier, he has been getting extended minutes compared to what coach Unseld was giving him coming back from the All-Star break. After playing 31 or more minutes in four straight games, Porzingis only got 29 last night. But I think we can get him over that 30-minute mark tonight in a matchup against the lowly Magic, where the Wiz are favored by three at home. What draws me to this play in tournaments are the rates, which have been elevated recently. Over his last five games Porzingis has posted a 32.9% usage rate, 21.6% assist rate and 18.3% rebounding rate while averaging 1.59 SuperDraft points per minute. I can’t ignore those rates but want to make clear that Porzingis is a GPP only play for me tonight and I don’t think we need to go there in cash.
Nikola Jokic (1x)
As is tradition, this is your reminder that Jokic is the best center play on the slate 95% of the time he’s available on SuperDraft. A matchup against the hapless Pacers is one of the best in the league from a fantasy perspective over the last few months and with the Nuggets needing wins for seeding purposes, you should lock in Jokic and move on in cash. If you want to get different in tournaments some of the plays I would consider include Jakob Poeltl (1.35x), Clint Capela (1.4x), Drew Eubanks (1.75x) and Bruno Fernando (2x). I would be more likely to put the latter two into a lineup before the former pairing, but again, Jokic is likely to outscore all of them even at his 1x multiplier.
