NBA DFS 1-13-21 DraftKings Value Picks

on

Welcome to the NBA DFS 1-13-21 DraftKings Value Picks article!

The Boston Celtics-Orlando Magic game has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues.

UPDATE – The Utah Jazz-Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks-Phoenix Suns games have also been postponed.

We’ve got a ten nine eight seven game slate with some great opportunities to earn some money and some great pairings to help earn that money.

The cheap pairing features the Blazers’ C.J. McCollum ($8,600) and Carmelo Anthony ($4,300). You get one of the hottest shooters and a trusted veteran with this pairing.

The intermediate pairing is the Grizzlies’ Dillion Brooks ($6,600) and Kyle Anderson ($6,400). You get a decent scoring duo with this pairing.

The expensive pairing is the Pistons’ Derrick Rose ($5,500) and Jerami Grant ($7,900). You get Detroit’s top two scorers in one of tonight’s projected high scoring games.

Keep an eye out for breaking news about Anthony Davis (questionable, toe) and Kevin Durant (probable). LeBron James has already said he will play. All three played last night.

Point Guard

Dennis Schroder, Los Angeles Lakers $6,100

Schroder is what I like to call a coffee grinder player. He does all the grinding and brewing to wake up the offense around him. He is the guy willing to sacrifice his body for a rebound, and he is the guy willing to dish the ball away to his teammate even though he is two points away from a double-double.

Speaking of double-doubles, Schroder should have one against the Thunder. Oklahoma City is one of the worst teams at stopping point guards from getting rebounds and assists. So, it’s highly probable that Schroder will get a double-digit point total to go along with his double-digit rebounds to get his second double-double for the season.

Shooting Guard

Donte DiVincenzo, Milwaukee Bucks $5,200

DiVincenzo is having an excellent start to his new job as the starter, averaging 11 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.6 steals. Fantasy players should expect a big game from White Donte since he is playing the Pistons’ terrible defense.

The Pistons have a 111.9 defensive rating and allow the third-most fantasy points to shooting guards. Plus, Detroit allows 26.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, and four assists per game to shooting guards.

Small Forward

Royce O’Neale, Utah Jazz $5,600

When looking for value picks, always target guys who are on the verge of becoming a double-double machine, and O’Neale is that guy right now.

In his previous five games, O’Neale is averaging 9.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, three assists, and 1.2 steals. His matchup against the Wizards will provide him the opportunity to walk away with a double-double on Wednesday night.

The Wizards allow 26.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game to small forwards this season. O’Neale should knock down a few three-pointers since he is shooting 48.8 percent from three, and Washington is allowing 3.5 three-pointers made per game to small forwards.

Tonight’s Jazz and Wizards game has been postponed. Harrison Barnes ($6,700) and Mikal Bridges ($5,700) will be great replacements for O’Neale. 

Power Forward

Kyle Anderson, Memphis Grizzlies $6,400

Anderson falls into the same category as Royce O’Neale, a double-double machine waiting to happen. Anderson is averaging 13.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists.

Now he is facing off against Minnesota, who have the third-worst defensive rating. The Timberwolves allow 43.4 fantasy points per game to power forwards.

Center

Enes Kanter, Portland Trail Blazers $4,800

People look over Kanter because he isn’t starting, but he is the Trail Blazers’ main center, especially when they need points in the paint.

Unlike Anderson and O’Neale, Kanter is a double-double machine. He is averaging 12.2 points and 10 rebounds in his past five games. Kanter will bank a double-double against Sacramento.

The Kings have the worst defensive rating in the NBA. Plus, they allow the third-most fantasy points to centers. They are allowing 23.6 points, 17.4 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game to centers.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
