Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate may go down as the highest-scoring slate of the season, as you’d have a difficult time finding players who were not productive. The mid-tier chalk (Ricky Rubio, Spencer Dinwiddie, Devonte’ Graham) all performed well, while the frontcourt value (Omer Yurtseven, Isaiah Roby, Nathan Knight) all did as well. Tie that into the most popular spend-up (LeBron James) having a great game and you were forced into a situation where one wrong play could have ended your night.
Below is a recap of how Tuesday’s recommended plays panned out.
Spencer Dinwiddie, WAS (1.45x score multiplier)
Dinwiddie has averaged 48.6 SuperDraft points per game with Bradley Beal out this season, and Tuesday was much of the same. The Wizards were able to hang around long enough with the Heat for Dinwiddie to post a productive 24-point, 11-assist double-double while adding seven rebounds.
RJ Hampton, ORL (1.85x)
Hampton was, by default, the best guard left for the Magic with both Jalen Suggs and Cole Anthony out Tuesday. While he didn’t draw the start, he was able to play enough to piece together a respectable nine points, four assists, three rebounds and three stocks (steals plus blocks) off the bench, doing enough at 1.85x to avoid sinking your lineups.
Joel Embiid, PHI (1x)
Embiid’s popularity on SuperDraft was higher than it was on other sites given his dual-position eligibility, and he paid off those who trusted him. With a massive 36-point, 11-rebound double-double, the lack of a multiplier was mitigated by a huge performance, as he added four assists and a block for good measure.
Nathan Knight, MIN (1.75x)
Knight made his second consecutive start at center for the Timberwolves despite the return of Naz Reid, but he was a bit less productive this time around. Posting eight points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes of action, it was a far cry from his 20-point, 11-rebound showing in the previous game, but enough at 1.75x to avoid sinking your lineups.
Omer Yurtseven, MIA (1.85x)
Yurtseven was the center of choice across the entire DFS community on Tuesday’s slate and SuperDraft was no different. With a 1.85x multiplier in a spot with four members of the frontcourt out, Yurtseven was forced into massive minutes. He topped 30 minutes for the second straight game, posting a 10-point, 14-rebound double-double en route to helping anyone that rostered him.
Greg Monroe, MIN (2x)
This play took a bit of a hit with Reid back in the fold, but Monroe was still able to top 20 minutes (22) for the second game in a row. He posted seven points, six boards, four assists and a trio of blocks and while the 2x multiplier certainly helped balloon his score, it wasn’t enough to overcome those that rostered Nathan Knight or Yurtseven.
