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.
Ja Morant (1.1x)
We’re on the final stretch of the regular season and we’re expecting tanking teams to turn it up while others compete for a playoff spot. This game is a perfect example of those two extremes. MEM looks to surpass GSW for the two seed, while SAS are looking for as many draft lottery balls as possible. This game also has a 238 implied total with the Grizzlies as 8.5-point home favorites. It makes it impossible for me to overlook Morant this evening. Even with the perceived tough positional matchup (Dejounte Murray is a former All-Defense selection), Morant has had his way against the Spurs this season, averaging 35.5 points, 8 assists, 5.5 rebounds and a steal in his two outings. With his 34.7% usage rate without Dillon Brooks on the court this season, Morant is my favorite option near the 1x multiplier floor at guard tonight.
Shai Gilgeous Alexander (1.25x)
While the Thunder are once again in full on tank mode, they have allowed Gilgeous-Alexander to return post All-Star break. But with Luguentz Dort and last summer’s sixth overall pick Josh Giddey both remaining out for tonight’s game against the Kings, SGA looks like a priority pick at guard. With those two teammates off the floor this season, Gilgeous-Alexander sees a substantial usage increase to 37.3% across a 208-minute sample size. Those who have hopped on that increase over the last two OKC games have been rewarded, as SGA has averaged 34 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 2.5 stocks (steals + blocks) in that span. Sure, it’s a small sample size, but is a matchup with Sacramento going to deter you from playing anyone? The answer is typically no, and it’s an emphatic heck no given Gilgeous-Alexander’s situation this evening.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (1x)
I mentioned earlier the fact that the MEM/SA game having a 238 implied total wasn’t the highest total on the slate. We have arrived at Milwaukee and Charlotte, sporting a 239 implied total (it opened at 241) with the Bucks 10.5-point home favorites. Overall, it seems to me that most of the players in this game are “priced” correctly in terms of their multipliers, but with 1x being as low as his multiplier is allowed to go, Giannis is a clear priority for me at forward. He has dipped below 53.25 SuperDraft points just once in his last nine games and topped 66.5 in five of those nice. He’s by far the safest option on the board, and because he carries 80+ SuperDraft point upside (not just in this matchup, but every time he steps on the floor), he is a priority for me in all formats tonight on SuperDraft.
Wendell Carter Jr. (1.4x)
Orlando hosts Indiana tonight, one of the teams we have been targeting with a ton of success over the last five or six weeks. The Magic play big, with Wendell Carter Jr. usually playing his first rotation at the power forward spot. That can lead to volatility with the frontcourt minutes against smaller teams, but with the Pacers running relatively big themselves, I think we see 30+ minutes from Carter Jr. tonight. We talked about Carter Jr’s fantasy point-per-minute success on Friday, and that doesn’t change here against one of the best frontcourts in the league. We saw these teams go head-to-head earlier this month with Carter Jr. finishing with 49 SuperDraft points in his 33 minutes. While that game was pre-trade deadline, the Pacers have not improved the frontcourt defensively, and at his 1.4x multiplier I have a lot of interest in WCJ on this slate.
Steven Adams (1.7x)
There’s not a standout stud play like a Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid, and we don’t have any crazy values opened up. So, I’m looking to the Grizzlies center in tournaments, and I don’t think he’s the worst option in cash either. As we talked about earlier, these two teams have met twice already this season. Adams has done everything we would want to see statistically against the Spurs, but he was limited to just two shot attempts in the second game on January 26th. That was his lowest shot attempt total since January 6th. We shouldn’t expect a slate-breaking base score from the big Kiwi, but with his 1.7x multiplier, I like taking shots on him in tournaments. He has averaged 37.7 SuperDraft points per game over his last six, which would be more than great at his multiplier.
