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 seven games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Steph Curry (1.05x)
This slate is shaping up to be a stars and scrubs type of night. At the guard position we have multiple elite options to choose from including Ja Morant, Trae Young and DeMar DeRozan. But my favorite play in tournaments on SuperDraft tonight is Curry, fresh off his All-Star Game MVP performance on Sunday. Curry should pull less ownership than that aforementioned trio of guards, and he may have the highest ceiling of the group. The Warriors are 10-point road favorites against the tanking Blazers tonight, which may further contribute to Curry’s miniscule ownership. Anytime we get a single digit owned Steph Curry (especially on a site that has a three-point bonus) I have interest, and the matchup with the Blazers is an extra cookie for the case to roster Curry in GPPs.
Rajon Rondo (2x)
Our first value play of the article is the veteran two-time champion. Currently the back up in Cleveland, Rondo should step into the starting lineup with Darius Garland and Caris LeVert out for this one. Despite being well past his prime in a real hoops context, Rondo remains a very productive fantasy asset when he gets the time. Over his last four appearances leading up to the All-Star break, Rondo averaged 1.07 SuperDraft points per minute. As long as he gets the start tonight, we should expect around 30 minutes for Rondo. At his 2x multiplier, he is a priority for me in that scenario going up against the Detroit defense that is beatable at essentially every position. If he comes off the bench in favor of Brandon Goodwin, I would prefer to roster him, but you could still use Rondo in GPPs albeit in a much more limited capacity.
Jayson Tatum (1.15x)
The options near the 1x multiplier floor at forward aren’t nearly as attractive as the guard position, but I have a lot of interest in rostering Tatum on this slate. The Celtics were one of the teams who probably weren’t huge fans of the All-Star break given how scorching hot they were in the weeks leading up to the week-long hiatus. Brooklyn sputtered into the break, in nearly the opposite fashion that Boston. They have reinforcements on the way in the form of Ben Simmons and Kevin Durant, but without those two the Nets look like a fantastic matchup for Tatum. The spread in this one is nine for Boston. If this game stays that close, we’ll want either Tatum or Jaylen Brown (1.25x) in our lineups. The Nets have nobody to matchup with Tatum and I prefer him to Brown if I must choose between the two.
Trendon Watford (2x)
The Blazers have been tanking for a while now, but it’s completely out in the open at this point after the trade deadline. While we’ve seen value open up at guard and on the wing over the last few weeks for Portland, this is our first real chance for value at center. I expect the rookie Watford to get the start tonight against the Warriors. While it’s a tough matchup against Golden State, I can’t overlook the upside Watford carries at his 2x multiplier. Watford isn’t the best fantasy producer in terms of his point-per-minute rates, but he hasn’t gotten the chance to play a ton. If he gets the start tonight, he’s a priority for me at his 2x multiplier. If new addition Drew Eubanks ends up getting the start, he becomes the priority at his identical 2x multiplier with the same forward eligibility.
Nikola Jokic (1x)
No surprises here, the reigning MVP occupies the center spot in the article coming out of the break. Jokic has been a fantasy monster all season, and that shouldn’t change in tonight’s matchup against the Kings. The Nuggets are 4.5-point road favorites and have a massive 119.5 implied team total. We’ve only seen these teams play once so far this season, and Jokic posted a massive 33 point, 10 rebound, 7 assist and 4 stock (steals + blocks) performance. If we expand the sample size against the Kings to last season we see that Jokic has averaged 34.5 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 stocks over that four game sample size. The Joker consistently makes the Kings frontcourt look like clowns, and we should expect more of the same here tonight. In one lineup, Jokic is the first player I’m clicking into my lineup.
