NBA DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Picks

Slate Summary

  • Another big weekend for many DFS Crunch members over the weekend. Let’s do it all over again to start Monday in NBA DFS.
  • With Dejounte Murray traded to the Atlanta Hawks, we knew that Devin Vassell would have a bigger role but we didn’t expect him to shine this bright. After being a bust on chalk night to start the season, he has had some big games putting up 22 and 23 points with 4 made 3pts in each of them. Vassell is a sniper and the Wolves have been giving up a lot of threes in this early season where the former 11th overall pick can take advantage of in this spot.
  • Sticking with the same game, I like ANT man. He has looked aggressive this season, especially last night where he went off against OKC. He has a great matchup again but one thing that worries me slightly is that he played 33 last night while the rest of the starters did not play garbage minutes. I wouldn’t factor this heavily and for 7.4k, I don’t plan on fading him in cash games.
  • Without Myles Turner defending the paint, Joel Embiid should have himself a monster night. I like James Harden as well but on DK and prefer ‘The Proccess’ on FD. Doc is playing Harden like he doesn’t have another guard at close to 40 minutes. Both are solid plays for your optimal build.
  • My last core play is Lauri Markkanen who has been the biggest surprise this year. He very well might have found his home in Utah putting up insane numbers (33, 51.75 and 56.5). There are good defensive teams that can slow down the Finnish giant but he is in a great matchup here against the Rockets today. I’m expecting another big game.
