NBA | Must-Haves | 3/8/18

Devin Booker (FDuel: $8,200): Our FanDuel Must-Have tonight is the drastically underpriced Devin Booker. The Suns shooting guard gets a decent matchup in a game that has a fairly high game total. One of the things we love to see is that the Thunder have been much worse against shooting guards (18th in the league in DvP)  since Roberson got injured. In fact, over the last ten games, they actually rank bottom three in the league vs shooting guards.This was widely evident when Booker put up 39 real points in their last game accompanied by 6 rebounds and 8 assists. Booker’s usage rate is massive recently and he has had the ball in his hands quite often. In addition to his massive usage and ball control, he has seen minutes hover around 38-40 over his last eight games or so and has been making use of being on the court so often. In four of the last six games, Booker has put up between 28 and 29 shot attempts and we believe we will see more of the same tonight. We wouldn’t be surprised if Devin Booker is the highest scoring shooting guard this evening by a wide margin and we will be licking our chops when we get to lock him into our lineups tonight on FanDuel.

Karl-Anthony Towns (FDraft: $17,400 DK: $9,300): On DraftKings and FantasyDraft, we will look to Karl-Anthony Towns to anchor our lineups, as he is extremely underpriced especially compared to his FDuel price (1300 less than FDuel). Though the matchup isn’t as amazing as we would like to see, it’s not too terribly bad. Boston ranks 9th in the league against centers, but Towns owns such a high usage rate and rebounding rate, we think his price is simply too low to ignore. His price must be lower due to the matchup, but with Towns’ skill set and advantages within the team through Butler’s injury, we will be making him a core piece of our lineups on DraftKings and FantasyDraft tonight.
