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 nine games on Tuesday’s slate, let’s get into some of the multiplier plays over on SuperDraft.
James Harden, Brooklyn Nets (1x)
The Nets are home, and we all know what that means. With Kyrie Irving out due to his vaccination status, we’ll look to Harden as our top floor multiplier play. Kevin Durant remains out as well with his knee issue, and without both Irving and Durant this season, Harden has a 34.6% usage rate in a 482-minute sample. The matchup against the Lakers is not something we should shy away from, and Harden has been in great fantasy form of late, scoring 62 or more SuperDraft points in four of his last seven games. Don’t overthink things at the top of the guard position, if you’re looking for a player around the multiplier floor, roster Harden and move on.
Nickeil Alexander-Walker (1.75x) and Jose Alvarado (2x), New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans turned the slate on its head late Tuesday morning. They announ ced that Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram, Devonte’ Graham and Josh Hart will all miss Tuesday’s second half of the back-to-back set. Barring some late additions from their G-League affiliate, the options of which are limited. Some of their G-League players have entered the health and safety protocols as of Monday, New Orleans will have nine players available. Alexander-Walker and Alvarado will command the majority of the backcourt minutes, and both guys are fantastic options on this slate. Alexander-Walker is the more talented player on paper and is who I would look to first. But I have no issue rostering Alvarado for the ceiling 2x multiplier. The rookie has shown the fantasy upside to end up optimal if he gets the time that he’s projected to in this one. I’m also not against stacking the two, especially if you’re running multiple lineups on SuperDraft. In one lineup I’m likely choosing just one given the fact there are eight other games on the slate and I have Pelicans interest at other positions as well.
Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors (1.2x)
There are more than a few palatable options up top at forward. Siakam stands out as my favorite in this range. The matchup against the Hornets is one of the best in the league to attack from a fantasy standpoint and although the Raptors are towards the middle of the pack in terms of implied team total tonight, it’s the minutes that I just can’t shy away from here. Coach Nick Nurse loves running the tightest rotation in basketball. He somehow took over that moniker from Tom Thibodeau in New York. Siakam has seen 38.5 minutes or more in nine of his last 10 games. We also got news while I’m writing this that Fred VanVleet is questionable for this one. With VanVleet off the court this season Siakam has seen a 2.2% usage increase. I love rostering Siakam either way for the floor/ceiling combo against the Hornets.
Furkan Korkmaz, Philadelphia 76ers (1.8x)
Purely a minutes play at this juncture, Korkmaz has recorded 36.5 and 39 minutes in his last two games. The sharpshooting Turkish wing has been hit or miss with his fantasy production. However, you won’t find another player at forward with this high of a multiplier who projects for as many minutes. It’s important to note there is one piece of news we are waiting on before we can slot him. The Sixers are still without Seth Curry, Danny Green, and Shake Milton. But, Matisse Thybulle is listed as questionable with his shoulder sprain. If he is active, it would make me look elsewhere in one lineup. The matchup will be juicy regardless. The Sixers are now 11-point home favorites against the shorthanded Pelicans as of this writing. I want Thybulle to rest just one more night so we can use Korkmaz as a run back to our Pelicans exposure.
Willy Hernangomez, New Orleans Pelicans (2x)
As I mentioned at guard, I have some interest in getting to Pelicans at other positions. Look no further than Hernangomez, who has seen his SuperDraft multiplier fall back to the 2x ceiling after being relegated to third-string in favor of Jaxson Hayes over the last few weeks. I expect Hernangomez to start here, and while the matchup against Joel Embiid is about as tough as they come, the fantasy production for Willy is just too good to pass up at 2x. He hasn’t played in a game since January 3rd but looking at that last stretch when he was in the rotation, Hernangomez averaged 1.03 SuperDraft points per minute in games from Dec. 21 to Jan. 3. At 2x, he is my favorite way to attack the center position. Don’t forget, this game tips off right at main slate lock. So, we will get the starting news and be able to pivot off if we see fit after the starting lineup is released.
Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets (1x)
The safest option for fantasy points whenever he is on a slate this season has been the reigning MVP. Jokic gets a matchup with lowly Detroit tonight. The Nuggets are currently projected to win by 7.5 points so expect big things. With Denver still missing their other stars for the foreseeable future, Jokic will continue to do a lot of everything for this team. It’s evident over the course of his season so far. Jokic has taken it to a new level recently averaging 74.8 SuperDraft points per game over his last four. If Hernangomez potentially coming off the bench spooks you, I have no issue running to the security blanket that is Jokic and getting different elsewhere in my lineup.
