NBA DFS 1-29-19: Jimmer’s 5 DraftKings Locks

on

With Kyrie Irving taking a seat last night, all the value Celtics took flight as we saw major chalk go off with Al Horford, as well as, Terry Rozier.

Two big disappointments were Kevin Durant (29.75) and Jayson Tatum (20.00).

Tonight we look ahead as we get James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Joel Embiid as our top studs.


If we want two of these studs we are going to have to find some value as we approach tip-off.

The Suns have ruled out Deandre Ayton, the Spurs will be without DeMar DeRozan and the Pelicans (already without Anthony Davis) will not have Julius Randle in uniform tonight!

Let’s get after it and secure this 💰 tonight.

NBA DFS 1-29-19: Jimmer’s 5 DraftKings Locks

Russell Westbrook PG – Oklahoma City Thunder – $10,600

Westbrook has been ridiculous over his last three games. Would you believe me if I told you he has had three straight triple-doubles and his price has decreased? Over those last three games, Russell Westbrook has held a 31.8% usage rating and a 1.68 Fantasy points per minute. As favorites in this game and a decently high total, I expect Russ to bring that triple-double streak to four in this one. I imagine he is going to be chalky.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 58.97 / 5.6x / at Magic / 222 ou / 4 pt favorites / 113 implied

Joel Embiid C – Philadelphia 76ers – $10,200

Over the last month, Joel Embiid has held a 36.3% usage rating and a 1.82 fantasy points per minute. He has been playing mid-30s minutes as well as producing at an elite level. Over 50+ points in each of his last 5 games, which have included 4 double-doubles, he has been dominating everyone in his path. The Lakers have given up an average of 24.6 points per game and 18 rebounds per game to the Center position. Smash spot for Embiid.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 56.72 / 5.6x / at Lakers / 229.5 ou / 7.5 pt favorites / 118.5 implied

Jimmy Butler SG/SF – Philadelphia 76ers – $6,900

Out of the 150 positions in the NBA, the Lakers rank 149 against the SF spot. 22.3 PPG and 8.0 RPG with 4.1 APG. Butler has been producing over the last month he has had a 24.6% usage rating and 1.22 fantasy points per minute. The defensive impaired Lakers will have bundles of trouble trying to keep Butler in check. Pair him with Embiid and take off.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 38.77 / 5.6x / at Lakers / 229.5 ou / 7.5 pt favorites / 118.5 implied

Shabazz Napier PG/SG – Brooklyn Nets – $4,900

With Spencer Dinwiddie out the last two games, Napier has averaged 27 minutes off the bench, as well as, 29.5 fantasy points per game. As we have seen the Nets have a quick trigger to pull D’Angelo Russell at any moment for various reasons, Napier could get up into the 30s. This isn’t a very high paced game, but the Nets are favorites. Napier has held a 25.7% usage, as well as, a .90 fantasy points per minute. If Napier holds his minutes in the upper 20s, he will easily hit 5-6x.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 26.29 / 5.4x / vs Bulls / 220 ou / 6.5 pt favorites / 113.25 implied

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – Brooklyn Nets – PF/C – $3,800

As I expect RHJ to grab another start tonight against the Bulls, he is in a very good spot. He will be locked into every single lineup I make tonight. Over his last two games, he has averaged 25.5 minutes and 29.05 fantasy minutes per game. The Bulls aren’t great against bigs and RHJ has been on a roll. I’m going to ride with the hot hand on him, as he will be a popular option. Lock him in to grab another high priced player.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 23.61 / 6.2x / vs Bulls / 220 ou / 6.5 pt favorites / 113.25 implied
