Point Guards

Collin Sexton

  • Draftkings: $5,300

Sexton is only a point guard on DraftKings. He's coming off a game where he only took six shots but still got to the foul line eight times.

His usage was low against the Timberwolves on Friday, but in the first game, he had a much higher usage and scored 20 points.

There's value with Sexton. His ceiling is high.

Jaylen Nowell

  • DraftKings: $3,800
  • FanDuel: $4,200

Nowell scored 27.9 FanDuel fantasy points against Utah a couple of days ago. He scored 18 points with three assists and two rebounds and had high usage. At his price, he's worth a gamble at point guard.

Shooting Guards

Josh Giddy

  • FanDuel: $6,800
  • DraftKings: $7,400

Giddey has put up over 35 FanDuel fantasy points in his first two games with the Thunder this season. His usage isn't all that high, but he's earned at least 11 rebounds in every game while also earning at least four assists.

Giddey's a potential triple-double candidate every time he takes the floor and he's not even $7,500 on either site.

Small Forwards

Cameron Johnson

  • DraftKings: $4,700
  • FanDuel: $4,300

Johnson still has a high usage despite only scoring 15.25 fantasy points against Portland on Friday. He's already taken 12 three-pointers in two games. Those shots are bound to fall. There's value in a starting forward in Johnson here.

Lu Dort

  • DraftKings: $5,500
  • FanDuel: $5,100

Dort just earned 33.25 fantasy points against the Denver Nuggets last night. He scored 13 points with seven rebounds, four assists, and three steals.

Dort is a box-score stuffer who can always earn double-digits in points every game. At his price, he's worth it against the Timberwolves.

Power Forwards

Rudy Gay

  • DraftKings: $3,600
  • FanDuel: $3,700

Rudy Gay only played 13 minutes for the Jazz on Friday but should see more minutes tonight. When he gets more minutes, he, of course, earns more fantasy points. In the first game of the season, Gay had 21 fantasy points while playing 25 minutes.

His usage will always be low, but he scored 16 points in the season's first game. There's always a chance he could do that again.

Evan Mobley

  • FanDuel: $6,900
  • DraftKings: $6,000

Mobley has been consistently putting up about 24 or 25 points so far. However, against Chicago, he only played 24 minutes compared to his 35 against the Raptors.

In fewer minutes, he scored more points last night. With all of that rest on the bench, if Mobley stays out of foul trouble, he'll likely get 30+ minutes.

Take a chance on Mobley.


Jarrett Allen

  • DraftKings: $6,600
  • FanDuel: $7,100

Allen scored 30 fantasy points in the first game of the season but then had just 19.2 fantasy points last night against the Bulls.

Either way, he's a center who has double-double potential every time he steps out on the floor. He was a little bit less aggressive last night and won't even have high usage. But he's a guy who can put up the same results as a cheaper option at center.

De'Andre Ayton

  • DraftKings: $6,500
  • FanDuel: $7,000

Ayton has been tremendous this season. Through two games, he's scored at least 35 fantasy points. Against Portland, he didn't hit the clutch free throws, but he still scored 26 points and earned six rebounds with three assists.

Ayton had a much higher usage in the second game and it should be just as high coming off a very good game on Friday.
