Every week I’ll be offering up my NBA DFS picks on SuperDraft, and following that up the next day with a look back on how I did and what we can learn from the picks.
In this article, I’ll be recapping what happened Wednesday night and reviewing how the picks and plays did. Let’s get into it.
Our first pick was Karl-Anthony Towns. KAT got off to a very slow start, and he despite a decent second half he was never able to catch up enough in order to have a strong night. He finished with just over 46 points after the multiplier, but that just wasn’t enough as guys like Jarrett Allen and Bikola Vucevic went for 50-plus at the center position.
Our next pick was DeMar DeRozan, who somehow scored 36 actual points and didn’t appear in the winning lineup. He had just 9 total assists and rebounds and picked up no blocks or steals, which really held him back from a strong performance. However, he still did score over 54 points, so it was a showing we are still happy with.
The final pick was LaMelo Ball, who was our best pick of the night. The missing players for Charlotte allowed Ball to play 38 minutes, and in that time he scored 33 points, and had 9 rebound, 5 assists and 4 steals. Ball finished just shy of 70 SuperDraft points after his multiplier and was in the winning lineup.
We went away from the recent strategy of targeting mid-level multiplier plays and really only LaMelo Ball came through for us in a big way, but DeRozan was still a solid option, meanwhile KAT was a bit lackluster. Overall, I’m not thrilled with the picks from last night but there weren’t necessarily any complete misses either.
