NBA | Must-Haves | 2/12/18

Donovan Mitchell (FDraft: $13,200, DK: $7,000, FDuel: $7,600): Our overall Must-Have of the night is Donovan Mitchell from the Utah Jazz. The rookie is having a breakout campaign averaging 19.4, 3.4, and 3.4 on the season. The Jazz traded away fellow guard Rodney Hood at the trade deadline and Ricky Rubio was ruled out of tonight’s game with a hip injury, leaving Mitchell to handle the ball. The Jazz were in a similar situation last night and Mitchell shot 24 times and scored 27 points with six rebounds. Since Rubio’s injury, Mitchell has averaged 1.06 FPTs/min and has a massive 34% usage. Vegas is predicting this game against the Spurs to be close, with the Jazz favored by five points. Donovan Mitchell is in a prime spot to crush value tonight and we are locking him into our lineups.

Emmanuel Mudiay (FDuel: $3,700): Our second Must-Have of the night is a FanDuel specific play of Emmanuel Mudiay. The 6’ 5” guard was traded to the Knicks at the deadline and he has been given new start to his career. After a shaky start with Denver, he gets to prove himself to New York and Jeff Hornacek, who has already shown faith in the young guard. Emmanuel scored 14 points on 14 shots and added 10 assists against the Pacers on Sunday. He now gets the fast-paced 76ers who play at the league’s fifth-fastest pace. With a Vegas game total of 211 points, Mudiay is in a prime spot to crush his low FanDuel price tag tonight and we are locking him into our lines.

Pau Gasol (FDraft: $9,900, DK: $4,800): Pau Gasol finds himself as our DraftKings and FantasyDraft Must-Have tonight against the Utah Jazz. The Spurs will be without LaMarcus Aldridge which gives Gasol an amazing opportunity to crush value. When Aldridge, Leonard and Gay are off the court this season, Gasol has a 23.2% usage rate with a 22% assist rate and a 20% rebounding rate. Pau is projected to play 29 minutes tonight which gives him plenty of court time to destroy his low price tag as he averages 1.12 FPTs/min without Aldridge. We are locking Pau Gasol into our lines on DraftKings and FantasyDraft tonight!
