NBA gives everyone a chance to start the weekend well with a great list of seven games DraftKings this Friday evening. Of the 14 teams present on the field, only the The Dallas Mavericks play for the second night in a row. However, there are already plenty of injury issues to watch out for, so stay stuck for news that opens up more value later today by following @dklive on Twitter and download the DK Live app.
In this article, we’ll focus on this Friday’s best deals, which are designed to outperform their affordable wages based on form, match, and expected workload. Let’s go directly to today’s choices.
Every year there seems to be a certain buzz at some point about how Simons is ready to take his game to the next level as the primary replacement for the two Blazers superstar guards, Damian Lillard ($ 9,300) and CJ McCollum ($ 7,900). While the verdict is yet to be delivered on his long-term consistency, Simons is definitely off to a good start to the season, so don’t let past disappointments deter you from riding Simons at this price point while it stays warm.
In each of his four games this season, Simons has scored at least 11 points and produced at least 18 DKFP, averaging 1.04 DKFP per minute. He has also just achieved his best performance of the young season. He played 28 minutes on Wednesday against the Grizzly bears, scoring 17 points, scoring five three-pointers and totaling 29.75 DKFP. He doesn’t normally pay it long-haul like that, but even when he doesn’t, he’s providing enough production to be worth a look at that paycheck.
In the first two games of the season, Brown only played four minutes in total for the Nets, and it looked like he was totally out of the rotation. However, things have definitely changed since then, and he’s even started each of the last two games for Brooklyn, recording over 30 minutes in each of those starts.
Brown has averaged 22.8 DKFP in 30.7 minutes over his last three games with 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game. His best fantastic night of the season came on Wednesday against the miami heat, when he finished with 26.25 DKFP on 12 points, five rebounds and three steals. With Kevin Durant ($ 10,300) and James Harden ($ 9,600) on the pitch, Brown certainly doesn’t have to carry the offense and won’t get heavy use, but his perimeter defense is key, and he should remain a fancy contributor as long as he continues to get so many minutes.
McDaniels has played 22 minutes in each of the Hornets’ last two games while helping to replace PJ Washington ($ 5,800; knee, questionable), who should miss at least one more contest. In those two games, McDaniels had 13 points and 20.75 DKFP against the Celtics followed by a more impressive 33 DKFP on 16 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block against the Magic. He scored several three-pointers in each of those two games and gave the second unit a big boost averaging DKFP 1.22 per game.
As long as Washington is out, McDaniels should continue to see more than 20 minutes on the field and have the chance to post a nice multi-category production. McDaniels’ point production keeps him from being at high risk, but he’s really at his best when he fills the other categories like he did on Wednesday in Orlando.
Kleber is last on the list, but not because he’s not a great game, only because he has the lowest pay. Kleber’s ultra-affordable price tag is due to the Mavs being back-to-back, meaning that doesn’t reflect his big Thursday game against the Spurs. Kleber stepped up and delivered 12 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots en route to a whopping 45.0 DKFP, a return of 14.1 DKFP per $ 1,000! It was a chalky piece since it replaced Kristaps Porzingis ($ 7,700; back, questionable), but he showed a big cap with that performance and should have won more work even if Porzingis comes back against the Nuggets.
Throughout his career, Kleber has proven to be a good person next to Luke Doncic ($ 11,000), so after that big game, look for coach Jason Kidd to take him further. In his three games before Thursday’s breakthrough, he averaged just 13.6 DKFP in 17.7 minutes per game. While another monster night’s worth like last night isn’t certain, he doesn’t need to do much to be a big game with his pay barely above the minimum.
