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.
Dejounte Murray (1.05x)
The Spurs have returned to the friendly confines of the AT&T Center after the conclusion of the annual “Rodeo Road Trip,” and coming home isn’t the only appealing thing for San Antonio’s players tonight. A matchup with the Kings will draw lots of DFS attention to the Silver and Black on this slate and for good reason. The Spurs have the highest implied team total on the slate by seven points over the second highest (Kings) of the fourteen teams playing tonight. Sacramento is a fantastic matchup at nearly every position from a fantasy standpoint, and because of this I have Dejounte Murray as my favorite stud guard option. While we don’t pick up double or triple-double bonuses on SuperDraft, we do get three points for stocks (steals + blocks) and Murray is one of the best in the league at accumulating those secondary stats. He’s averaging 56.2 SuperDraft points per game over his last ten and has exceeded 64.75 SuperDraft points in three of those games.
Delon Wright (2x)
Purely a speculative play at this point of the day, Wright could step into a large role for Atlanta tonight with Trae Young currently questionable. Young hurt his ankle against Boston on Tuesday and while he returned to that game, he did not participate in this morning’s shootaround. I tend to lean on the side of a player, especially of Young’s caliber, to sit out when they don’t participate in shootaround but we’ll watch the news leading up to lock. If Young sits, expect Wright to get his sixth start of the season. He has averaged 33.8 minutes per game in starts this year along with 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2 steals per game. At his 2x multiplier, he would be someone we’d have to think seriously about including in our builds. If he does get the start, he becomes a very interesting value in GPPs on SuperDraft, while I would still be hesitant to lock him into my cash game build.
Luka Doncic (1x)
No surprises here, Doncic is once again a priority on this slate. Contrary to his last three appearances in this article, I prefer him at forward on this slate as of this writing. This can be more of a reminder of how good Luka is in terms of his fantasy production rather than a full-blown argument for him. He is still averaging just shy of 65 SuperDraft points per game over his last 13 outings. Over that span, Doncic has not posted a usage rate of less than 33.2% in any game, highlighting just how important he is to every aspect of the Mavericks offense. He had a bit of a down game from a fantasy results perspective in Tuesday night’s win over the Lakers, but we should expect him to bounce back against the Warriors here. The Mavericks are currently two-point home favorites, and we know that Doncic has 70+ fantasy point upside any time he steps on the floor. We haven’t seen an output like that in the three games since the All-Star break, but he did top 73.25 SuperDraft points in three of his four games going into the break. I think he puts on a show tonight and he’s once again a top option.
Jayson Tatum (1.15x)
The Celtics have really turned their season around over the last month, thanks to some improved play by their core rotation, the Derrick White acquisition and a few key defensive adjustments by coach Ime Udoka. They hit a slight bump in the road on Tuesday night when Jaylen Brown left the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. He has been ruled out of tonight’s game against the upstart Grizzlies, opening up extra opportunity for Jayson Tatum. In the 14 games that Brown has missed this season, Tatum sees a 2.2% usage increase with a 34.7% usage rate across those 502 minutes played. He’s averaged 30 points, 9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2 stocks in those games. With his 1.15x multiplier he is a priority for me in both cash and GPPs tonight and I would not be surprised to see 60-plus SuperDraft points from Tatum here.
Jakob Poeltl (1.4x)
Back to the Spurs, this time in the frontcourt. Poeltl has been great for San Antonio this season and has blossomed into one of the top rim protecting centers in the NBA. That doesn’t matter much for our purposes though as we are looking for more than just rebounds and blocks. It may surprise you, but Poeltl has been a monster from a fantasy standpoint lately. Over his last five games, Poeltl is averaging 45.1 SuperDraft points per game and 1.37 SuperDraft points per minute. With the matchup against the Kings looking like the most attractive on the slate, Poeltl is my top center play in all formats on SuperDraft this evening.
