After a DFS slate where every team in the NBA played Monday, only four teams were in action Tuesday, leaving us with a lowly two-game slate on SuperDraft. The first game between the Timberwolves and Knicks came down to the final possession, ending in both Evan Fournier and Alec Burks being unable to win it for the Knicks, while the second game was over before it started, as the Warriors handled the Pistons as we’d all expect.
Below is a brief recap of the five plays that were provided for SuperDraft DFS on Tuesday’s slate.
Stephen Curry, GSW (1x score multiplier)
The blowout was the only hindrance in Curry’s production Tuesday, as he shot over 50% from the field (6-11, 4-8 from three) en route to 18 points while adding eight assists, a trio of rebounds and a trio of steals in only 29 minutes. His 29 minutes topped the Warriors team Tuesday, illustrating just how out of hand this game got with 13 different players getting playing time for Golden State.
D’Angelo Russell, MIN (1.3x)
Russell had been on a bit of a tear for the Timberwolves, notching three double-doubles over his last five games and 12 assists in the previous game despite scoring less than 10 points. His scoring came back up a bit on Tuesday, as he notched 17 points, but the peripherals regressed all the way to four assists, two rebounds, a steal and a block. With such a mediocre outing, he didn’t help nor hurt your stock if you rostered him Tuesday.
Julius Randle, NYK (1.15x)
Randle was one of the few standout performances Tuesday, finishing one rebound and one assist shy of a triple-double while adding four blocks and two steals. His 21 points paved the way for an incredibly productive outing and with a 1.15x multiplier, he became the best play of the slate in hindsight.
Cade Cunningham, DET (1.4x)
Despite the blowout, Cunningham still saw 28 minutes, he simply failed to perform in that time. Shooting only 3-10 from the field, the inefficiencies that he’s shown early in the season continued Tuesday, totaling only eight points with four assists and five turnovers. A 1.4x multiplier and high ownership helped mitigate some of the damage, but he certainly didn’t help those that rostered him.
Karl-Anthony Towns, MIN (1.05x)
Towns had an impressive offensive outing, shooting 6-12 from the field for 20 points, but only reeled in five boards and provided three assists and a steal to compliment the scoring output. Because of the nature of the two-game slate, this didn’t kill you given his popularity, but on a slate of any other size, Towns’ mediocre outing would’ve been a nail in the coffin at such a low multiplier.
