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 five games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Luka Doncic (1x)
As things stand now there’s not a ton of value available on this five-game slate. For Dallas, the matchup against the Lakers couldn’t be much better at this point. LeBron James is listed as doubtful alongside Anthony Davis, who did get in a full practice on Monday. The Mavericks are 11.5-point home favorites in this nationally televised affair and if Dallas is to run away with this one it’s likely on the back of Doncic. He’s been somewhat underwhelming from a fantasy standpoint lately, averaging just 45.5 SuperDraft points over his last five games. I’m treating that downturn as variance and fully expect Luka to get back to his normal mid-to-high 50’s in fantasy points with upside for more. He’s a high floor, high ceiling option on this slate (and if you’re thinking, yeah duh, I don’t blame you).
DeMar DeRozan (1.2x)
We’re waiting on the status of a Lavine playing time tonight. The Bulls are on the road and are 3.5-point road favorites tonight against the Wizards. They will likely remain the favorites regardless of LaVine’s status, but if he does end up sitting then we have to like DeRozan at his 1.2x multiplier. Obviously this Bulls team has struggled to stay healthy as a unit all season. It really helps us with breaking down the team when someone is out. DeRozan has played in 13 games without LaVine this season and in those games he’s seen a usage increase of 5% over his season averages to 36.9%. He also has averaged 33.4 points, 5.8 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1 stock (steals + blocks) in those games. If LaVine sits DeRozan is a priority for me in both cash and GPPs.
Kristaps Porzingis (1.3x)
Porzingis hasn’t always been reliable on the double-up days. Lately that hasn’t been the case, as he’s played full minutes in each of the last two Washington back-to-backs. As long as he is available and starting he is a great option getting the extra 30% boost on his fantasy point scoring. Over his last four games (all without Kyle Kuzma, who remains out tonight), Porzingis has averaged 51.3 SuperDraft points per game and 1.61 SuperDraft points per minute with a 33.8% usage rate. As I mentioned above the Wizards are just 3.5-point home underdogs in this one, so we should approach this game as if it’s going to remain competitive and if that happens I think we’re going to want Porzingis in our lineups when all is said and done on this slate. It’s acceptable to me as things stand now to use forward eligible players in your center spot.
Dwight Howard (2x)
With LeBron and Anthony Davis both listed as doubtful for the Lakers, we (unfortunately) have to consider the merits of rostering Dwight Howard. As bad as he might be compared to how we formerly knew him early last decade, he’s still a fine fantasy producer. Fine may be understating his fantasy production, as he’s averaged 1.07 SuperDraft points per minute through his 52 appearances for the Lakers this year. I expect him to get the start at center tonight and have minutes upside into the 30’s. Over the last two games, Howard has started and played 28 and 33 minutes respectively. I like slotting him in at forward, and if LeBron or Davis somehow overcome the doubtful designations and suit up, you can pivot to them (or another forward option) before this game locks.
Andre Drummond (1.65x)
If we’re just talking those center-only plays then Drummond is my top option. He gets a matchup with one of the worst teams in the league who just so happen to be his former employer. Now, Drummond is multiple teams removed from playing for the Pistons so that narrative isn’t the only reasoning for the play. But it is an extra cookie on top of the 25 minutes per game and 1.43 SuperDraft points per minute that Drummond has recorded over the last four games. The Nets are big 14-point home favorites here, and with the potential I see for Nic Claxton to struggle with Isaiah Stewart and LaMarcus Aldridge seemingly entrenched as the third string center at the moment, Drummond is a very intriguing option at his 1.65x multiplier.
