NBA DFS 4-7-21 DraftKings Value Picks

on

Welcome to the NBA DFS 4-7-21 DraftKings Value Picks article!

We’ve got a nine-game slate with some great values and even greater pairing options.

The cheap pairing is the Nuggets Aaron Gordon ($6,500) and Will Barton ($5,400). Aaron Gordon is averaging 14.3 points and 4.8 rebounds as a Nugget, and Barton is averaging 12.5 points in his past five games.

The intermediate pairing is the Magic Terrence Ross ($6,400) and Dwayne Bacon ($5,700). Ross and Bacon are now the Magic’s best scorers and face the Wizards, who allow the most fantasy points to all positions.

The expensive pairing is the Pacers Caris LeVert ($7,100) and T.J. McConnell (5,100). Malcolm Brogdon is dealing with a hip injury, and Jeremy Lamb has a toe injury, so the Pacers are lite on guards and will open up the workload for LeVert and McConnell. Plus, they are facing the Timberwolves, who allow the second-most fantasy points to all positions.

Nine-Game Slate

Wolves @ Pacers
Wizards @ Magic
Knicks @ Celtics
Pelicans @ Nets
Grizzlies @ Hawks
Mavs @ Rockets
Hornets @ Thunder
Spurs @ Nuggets
Jazz @ Suns

Point Guard

Raul Neto, Washington Wizards $4,100

Bradley Beal continues to miss games due to injury, putting a more significant workload on Neto.

In his previous five games, Neto is averaging 11.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.2 assists. So, Neto has provided a reliable contributor for the Wizards in Beal’s absence.

Tonight, he is facing the Magic, whom he has owned throughout this season. He is averaging 16.7 points, 2.5 assists, and two rebounds against the Magic.

It also bodes well for Neto that the Orlando Magic have struggled against point guards. The Magic allow 25.2 points, 8.4 assists, and seven assists per game to point guards this season.

Shooting Guard

Josh Richardson, Dallas Mavericks $4,800

Richardson is a constant crapshoot in daily fantasy. Some nights he scores double-digit points with a handful of boards, and other nights he forgoes his scoring and focuses on rebounding and passing. He is coming off a 17 point game against the Jazz, so hopefully, he can get a scoring streak going against the Rockets.

Houston is allowing the most fantasy points to shooting guards. The Rockets allow 24.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game to shooting guards.

He is most likely to be guarded by Kevin Porter Jr., who has struggled to contain Richardson in previous matchups.

Richardson averages 11.3 points, four rebounds, three assists, one block, and one steal when guarded by Porter Jr.

Small Forward

Bogdan Bogdanovic, Atlanta Hawks $6,500

Bogdanovic has been on fire lately; he is averaging 19 points, 4.8 assists, four rebounds, and 1.8 steals in his previous five games.

There is no reason to believe his flame will be put out tonight against the Grizzlies, who allow the most fantasy points to small forwards. The Grizzlies allow 23 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to small forwards this season.

Power Forward

Aleksej Pokusevski, Oklahoma City Thunder $5,600

Pokusevski has come out strong for the Thunder since becoming a starter. He is averaging 12.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists since becoming a starter. He has started to find his shot in the pros recently, averaging 15.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, three assists, and one block in his last five games.

Tonight, Pokusevski is facing the Hornets, who allow the most fantasy points to power forwards. The Hornets allow 23.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game to power forwards this season.

Center

Wendell Carter Jr., Orlando Magic $6,000

There is slim picking at center because many of the players are either out or questionable for tonight’s games. The upside of all the injuries plaguing big men opens the door for DFS players to snag great value for their lineups. One of the best values at center is Wendell Carter Jr.

Carter is adjusting well to his new team. He is averaging 15 points, 9.4 rebounds, two assists, and 1.4 blocks since joining the Magic. He has two double-doubles in the five games he has played for Orlando, so Carter is clicking with his new team.

Carter faces the Wizards, who allow the most fantasy points to centers, allowing 24 points, 16.4 rebounds, 3.9 assists per game to centers this season.

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.
