on

Welcome to the NBA DFS 2-17-21 DraftKings Value Picks article!

We’ve got a 10-game slate tonight with some great value picks and some great pairings.

The cheap pairing is the Nuggets Michael Porter Jr. ($6,200) and Jamal Murray ($7,100). The Nuggets have a ton of injuries on the team, and it will be up to these two scorers to provide points.

The intermediate pairing is the Pacers Domantas Sabonis ($9,700) and Jeremy Lamb ($4,800). The Timberwolves allow the second-most fantasy points per game to all positions.

The expensive pairing is Blazers Damian Lillard ($10,300) and Carmelo Anthony ($5,300). The Pelicans struggle defensively. New Orleans is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to all positions.

For those betting in Canada, even though the Toronto Raptors aren’t playing tonight, there are still a bunch of overs to take tonight!

10 Game Slate

Knicks @ Magic
Hawks @ Celtics (B2B)
Rockets @ Sixers
Pacers @ Wolves (B2B)
Nuggets (B2B-road) @ Wizards
Blazers (B2B-road) @ Pelicans (B2B)
Bulls @ Pistons
Thunder (B2B) @ Grizzlies (B2B)
Heat @ Warriors
Jazz @ Clippers

Point Guard

Lonzo Ball, New Orleans Pelicans $6,500

Ball has scored double-digit points in eight consecutive games. During those eight games, he averaged 16.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists. He also attempted 7.5 three-pointers and shot 48.3 percent from three-point range as well during that span.

Ball is facing off against the Trail Blazers, who are allowing the most fantasy points to point guards. They allow 28.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 8.1 assists per game to point guards.

Shooting Guard

Luguentz Dort, Oklahoma City Thunder $5,600

Good old Luo Dort has been on a three-game tear, averaging 17 points, five rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.7 steals.

Dort should continue that tear against the Grizzlies, who have struggled at small forwards. (48.1 fantasy points per game)

Memphis allows 24.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game to small forwards.

Dort qualifies at shooting guard in DraftKings even though he is primarily a small forward, so jump on this rare opportunity.

Small Forward

R.J. Barrett, New York Knicks $5,700

Barrett had two rough games against the Wizards and Rockets but had a 20-point bounce-back game against the Hawks. A streak should start tonight for Barrett since he is playing the Magic.

Orlando allows the fourth-most fantasy points to small forwards. They’re allowing 23.5 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game to SFs.

Power Forward

Thaddeus Young, Chicago Bulls $6,100

The Bulls are riddled with injuries, especially at the forward position. Otto Porter Jr. is dealing with a back injury and Lauri Markkanen is out with a shoulder injury, which means Thaddeus Young is the last man standing right now.

Young averaged 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in his previous ten games. He should have a double-double against the Pistons.

The Pistons allow 21.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game to power forwards this season.

Center

Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers $6,300

Turner has a block in every game he has played in this season. Recently, he has improved his rebounding and has scored double-digit points in three consecutive games. So, he is a double-double waiting to happen, and it should happen against the Timberwolves since they allow the most fantasy points to centers.

Minnesota allows 27.6 points, 16.2 rebounds, and 4.7 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.
