Rajon Rondo (FDraft: $10,800 DK: $5,500 FDuel: $6,000): Rajon Rondo is in the highest projected O/U of 222. Without Anthony Davis on the court, Rondo has absolutely excelled with at least 36 FPTs in the last three games. One of the reasons for this; Davis clogs up a lot of usage when he plays alongside Cousins, which negatively affects Rondo as he has a -.66 correlation with Davis. Rondo finds himself in a pace-up matchup against the Denver Nuggets who are third-worst in opponent +/- against the point guard. At Rondo’s deflated price across the board, we are locking him in as our first Must-Have of this 10-game slate.
Kevin Durant (FDraft: $19,600 DK: $10,100 FDuel: $10,000): Our second Must-Have of the day will be the focal point of the offense with Steph Curry absent from today’s contest. When Curry is off the court, Durant has a 33% usage and averages 1.33 FPTs/min. Draymond Green is also questionable for this contest, and if he is unable to suit up, it only increases the amount of touches Durant will see in this game. Charlotte has surprisingly been very vulnerable against opposing small forwards as they are giving up an opponent +/- of +6.8 on FanDuel and +4.5 on DraftKings. With an O/U of 216 and an ample usage increase going towards Kevin Durant, we are locking him in across the board.
