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 five games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Cade Cunningham (1.3x)
The Pistons are nearly double-digit underdogs at home against the 76ers tonight, but it (somewhat surprisingly) doesn’t take them out of consideration for our SuperDraft lineups. Detroit has been giving last summer’s first overall pick some extended run to end the year and while I wouldn’t be surprised to see him shut down for the last few games of the regular season, a potential abrupt end to his rookie campaign won’t come tonight. Cunningham has averaged 36.9 minutes per game over his last eight appearances, up from his season average of 32.5 minutes per game. Over that span he’s averaged 43.9 SuperDraft points per game with a 30% usage rate and 1.19 SuperDraft points per minute. Cunningham can fill up the box score in a variety of ways, and when he contributes in all five categories he can put up a number that vaults you to the top of GPP leaderboard. With his guard and forward eligibility, Cunningham looks like a versatile fantasy asset on SuperDraft this evening with upside for a big score.
Caris LeVert (1.6x)
Cleveland is on the second half of a back-to-back set and looking to hold off Brooklyn for the seventh seed in the Eastern conference and the rights to host the first play-in game. After dropping last night’s game at home to the Mavericks the Cavs head south to take on the Hawks, who are now just three games back of Atlanta themselves and sitting in the ten spot. Cleveland’s precipitous drop in the standings coincides with them taking on multiple injuries to key players, most notably Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley. The numerous absences on the roster have opened up a starting role for LeVert over the last few games and with his minutes limit removed, I have interest at his 1.6x multiplier today. LeVert played 38.5 minutes last night, taking 19 shots (converting 11 of them) and posting 45 SuperDraft points. He should continue to see major minutes tonight and with this game projected to stay competitive (Hawks currently favored by five at home), I slightly prefer LeVert and his elevated multiplier to his All-Star backcourt mate Darius Garland.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (1x)
We got a glimpse of what the Milwaukee playoff rotation may look like when the Bucks went into Philadelphia on Tuesday and emerged victorious thanks to Antetokounmpo’s clutch block of Joel Embiid at the rim to close the game. Giannis led the Bucks in minutes with 40 and with Milwaukee sitting just one game behind the Miami Heat for the top seed in the Eastern conference, it’s not crazy to think we see heavy minutes again for Giannis and the other key Bucks players tonight. In what is clearly the marquee matchup on the night, the Bucks travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets and the opening line of Bucks by two has swung this morning to favor the Nets by two. More importantly, this game has an implied total 18 points higher than any of the other four games on the slate. Giannis playing 40 minutes is just a different beast from a fantasy perspective than we are used to in the regular season, and I expect we see a similar performance to the 77.5 SuperDraft points he recorded on Tuesday.
Paul George (1.15x)
The Clippers potentially being “fully healthy” for a playoff run has kind of snuck up on the entire league. Once thought to potentially be without the trio of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Norman Powell for the remainder of the season, rumor now has it that all three could potentially take the court in a hypothetical first round series. George himself returned on Tuesday night with a reported minutes limit that turned out to be nearly 31 minutes, and boy where they some productive ones. George led the Clippers back from a 21-point first half deficit to end the five-game Los Angeles losing streak, posting 61.5 SuperDraft points in the process. The Clips are on the road in Chicago tonight, and even with Nic Batum and Marcus Morris currently questionable are just three-point road underdogs. I’m fine to roll with George tonight, especially when factoring in his early season numbers (Tuesday was his first appearance since December) of 1.35 SuperDraft points per minute and a 34.5% usage rate.
Moses Brown (2x)
Center is a tough position tonight, and I think the majority of the field will use PF/C eligible Joel Embiid in this slot tonight. That’s not a bad idea considering the high floor/ceiling combo Embiid brings on a night-to-night basis, but if we want to get different in tournaments, I think we can take a shot on Brown. The young center (who is on a 10-day contract) is on his fourth NBA team in three seasons but has been a productive fantasy asset from a points per minute standpoint at each stop. He got the start at center last night against Dallas in place of the injured Evan Mobley, only seeing 21 minutes due to the Mavericks propensity to run smaller lineups. He did just fine from a fantasy rates standpoint though, staying in line with career rates and scoring 22.25 SuperDraft points. With Atlanta typically running a traditional center all 48 minutes, I have some interest in going back to Brown in GPPs at his 2x multiplier. Of course, make sure he remains in the starting lineup before locking him into your lineups.
