on

If you tuned in to my article yesterday, there’s a good chance you completely smashed!

Russell Westbrook (66), Joel Embiid (52.25), Jimmy Butler (47.25), Shabazz Napier (41.75), & Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (25).

All the honorable mentions went off too, so let’s repeat that fire and get back at it today.
Tonight we have an eight-game main slate with the likes of Nikola Jokic and Karl-Anthony Towns.


We also have one the most interesting games I’ve seen so far this season – the Kings vs the Hawks. These two teams are ranked first and second in pace.

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

NBA DFS 1-30-19: Jimmer’s 5 DraftKings Locks

Click here for updated DFS Projections and to use the free lineup optimizer!

Nikola Jokic C – Denver Nuggets – $10,900

As the only stud on this slate that I will consider, he will 100% be in my lineup. With Jamaal Murray off the court this year Jokic holds a 31% usage, as well as, a 1.67 fantasy points per minute. After struggling his last time out versus Memphis (who is no slouch on defense), he looks to dominate Jahlil Okafor tonight.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 54.47 / 5.0x / at Pelicans / 226.5 ou / -9 / 117.5 implied

De’Aaron Fox PG – Sacramento Kings – $7,700

Fox had been someone I was targeting every single night he played up until he had that shoulder injury. He looks healthy enough for me to now lock and load back into my lineups. Scoring 31 and 36 points the last two games while averaging 34 minutes, he appears to be back to normal. In those two games, he holds a 32.2% usage as well as one fantasy point per minute. As someone who can rack up a handful of steals easily, as well as, rack up many assists and a good amount of rebounds, this price tag will easily be paid off.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 39.13 / 5.1x / vs Hawks / 236.5 ou / -5 / 120.75 implied

Dewayne Dedmon PF/C – Atlanta Hawks – $5,600

This is another cheap price tag for a player who has been balling out lately. To the center position, the Kings have given up 22.7 PPG and 14.9 RPG, I easily see Dedmon getting a hefty double-double in this and dominating Willie Cauley-Stein down low. In a high paced game, a lot of shots will go up and Dedmon is no slouch of his own. There will be tons of rebounds to grab tonight and many block opportunities. He is another player who should be locked in lineups.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 26.35 / 4.7x / at Kings / 236.5 ou / +5 / 114.75 implied

Bogdan Bogdanovic SG/SF – Sacramento Kings – $5,500

This price is ridiculously cheap with the way Bogdanovic has been balling out this season. Starting or not, that will make no difference to me, I’d rather have him off the bench to be honest. So far this season Bogdanovic has held a 25.2% usage with 1.02 fantasy points per minute. Aside from blowouts and back-to-backs, he has been playing in the low 30 minutes and that should continue here. Bogdanovic off the bench will be the primary ball handler and will rack up all peripheral stats needed. I imagine he easily pays off this dirt cheap $5.5k price tag and will honestly probably hit 6x value tonight.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 31.19 / 5.7x / vs Hawks/ 236.5 ou / -5 / 120.75 implied

Jaylen Brown SG/SF – Boston Celtics – $4,700

With Kyrie Irving being ruled out again, Jaylen Brown is one of the largest beneficiaries as he holds a 25.6% usage and a 0.97 fantasy points per minute. Even though he’s going to come off the bench, he completely balls out when Kyrie sits. Just as recent as Monday, he played 32 minutes and posted 33 DraftKings points. Great value to be able to fit Jokic in.

Wisdom of the Crowd Projection – 26.55 / 5.6x / vs Hornets / 215 ou / -7.5 / 111.25 implied
