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 of the studs, but their point multipliers will be low. You can balance those plays out with some longshots that could score up to 2x their fantasy points to vault you to the top of the leaderboards.
With two games on tonight’s slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays over on SuperDraft.
Stephen Curry (1x)
Given that today’s slate is such a small one, we need to focus more on raw fantasy points in our lineups than we would on a usual schedule. That makes the former MVP and all-time leader in three-pointers a priority at the guard position. People may shy away from Curry due to his recent downturn in production – he’s only topped 41.75 SuperDraft points in one of his last six outings. It’s been a shooting slump doing the damage to Curry’s fantasy production, something that we shouldn’t expect to last much longer with the Pistons coming to town tonight. Detroit gives up fantasy points in bunches at nearly every position. My only worry is that the game turns into a blowout, given that the Warriors are currently favored by 15 points at home. But with the potential for Curry to go under-owned due to his recent lack of output, he’s too tantalizing to pass up.
D’Angelo Russell (1.3x)
The more competitive matchup on paper tonight is the first game of the slate in the Garden. The Timberwolves, who are all of a sudden just a game and a half out of the sixth seed in the Western Conference, come to New York as 3-point road favorites. Minnesota is finally over their extensive bout with the health and safety protocols and their three-headed monster of Karl Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and Russell are together once more. Edwards is a fine play at his 1.2x multiplier, but given how similarly he projects to Russell I prefer the latter with his extra 10% boost on his fantasy points. Russell has been quite productive lately, topping 45.75 SuperDraft points in three of his last five games. Per our Advanced DVP tool, the Knicks are the eighth- and fith-best matchups for Russell’s two traits – primary ball-handler and scorer – which isn’t a surprise given New York’s defensive struggles as a whole this season. Although I prefer Russell, it’s not out of the question to stack him with Edwards in a SuperDraft lineup this evening.
Julius Randle (1.15x)
Once again focusing on the lower multiplier plays, we should take a long look at the Knicks’ leading scorer. Randle hasn’t been the same all-star caliber player that we all got hyped up about last season, with his averages decreasing in nearly every category we care about from a DFS perspective, but he’s shown the ability at times to still post premium performances. On this small two-game slate, he’s worth prioritizing in one of our forward spots. Randle has posted a usage rate of 29% over his last three games and averaged 42 SuperDraft points in that span. With the high floor on both his minutes and production, I’ll eat the potential chalk here and diversify elsewhere.
Cade Cunningham (1.4x)
You can play the number one overall pick at either guard or forward because of his multi-positional eligibility, but given the available options I prefer him at forward. On a larger slate, we would likely look to fully fade the Pistons, but with only four teams to choose from we must at least consider nearly every player projected to play a role tonight. Consequently, Cunningham stands out as by far the best way to prioritize getting exposure to Detroit. He’s been very hit-or-miss from a fantasy standpoint in his rookie season, but he’s shown the upside to put up some big stat lines. If the Pistons manage to keep this game close, it will likely be on the back of a big game from the former Oklahoma State Cowboy.
Karl-Anthony Towns (1.05x)
Unless you’re going to rotate Randle down to your center spot, the choice is clear for who you should roster on this slate. Towns has the highest ceiling and floor combo of any of the remaining choices from these four teams, and it’s a no-brainer that he should be in your center spot in any sort of cash game scenario. I would likely be multiple GPP lineups deep before I switched up how I’m attacking this position with Towns. The Timberwolves stud center hasn’t dipped below 41.25 SuperDraft points since December 12th and is averaging 51.6 SuperDraft points per game in his last ten. Click on his name first, and then build out the rest of your lineup.
Guard – Anthony Edwards (1.2x), R.J. Barrett (1.5x), Alec Burks (1.5x),
Forward – Saddiq Bey (1.5x), Jared Vanderbilt (1.65x), Trey Lyles (1.7x)
Center – Isaiah Stewart (1.6x), Mitchell Robinson (1.7x)
