Kmarko's NBA Draftkings Picks - February 10

kmarkoNBA

Welcome back to the daily DraftKings picks where we try to get super rich playing daily fantasy basketball. As usual I’ll do a brief recap of my lineups from the week before then throw out some picks that I’m brainstorming for this weekend, and hopefully get some good feedback/tips/picks from you guys either in the comment section or on Twitter @kmarkobarstool.

Not a great night in the tournaments.

Blog picks were solid once again – 124 points for Wall, Porzingis and Sullinger. Wall exploded for 64.25, Porzingis was the second highest scoring PF, and Sullinger at least gave us a little value. I hit with Beal also, unfortunately Otto Porter and Neto dragged me down and kept me from cashing.

Huge slate tonight, let’s jump into it.

C Pau Gasol $9K

I’ll skip the top 3 guys of the night because of how obvious they are. Here’s a hint – if you have the money, Curry Harden and Boogie are really good plays that will get you a lot of points. For the sake of our tournament picks here though I’m going to switch it up a little bit, dip below those top salary guys and feature Pau in the top spot. Butler being out for the next month opens up the obvious: minutes for E’Twaun and a bump for D Rose. But a more under the radar aspect is Pau’s efficiency going way up, and he’s posting some monster stat lines.

PG Ish Smith $7.2K

Two atrocious teams going head to head doesn’t make for the best TV experience, but it sure makes for an awesome night of fantasy. Lot to love about this game, most importantly the shitty defense. I like Rondo a bunch as the other PG, but I’ll roll with Ish tonight for much cheaper and with some real nice upside.

PF Zach Randolph $6.5K

You obviously never root for anyone to get injured, but every daily fantasy player knows the first thing you do when a guy goes down is figure out ok, who does this benefit on the team. With Gasol’s injury our main candidate becomes my man ZBo. He’s getting old and slowing down a bit, but when he gets the minutes (and the ball in his hands every play) he can still drop big ones. Case in point – 2 40+ point games in a row. I’d also look at Green, Barnes, Conley and even Tony Allen, but my top guy for the Grizz is Randolph.

Other plays…

PG: Curry is the top guy, then after that, I like any one of the Rondo/Kemba/Kyrie bunch. Conley and Teague are good options for a little cheaper…and that’s probably as low as I’ll go. Don’t love the value plays here – maybe Zach LaVine if I need it.

SG: After Harden it’s probably DeRozan as the best play, but I’ll take McCollum over him. I like Hood, Barton and Turner in that mid range spot, and Jamal Crawford has been an excellent value play lately.

SF: SF has been stacked with good DFS options lately. LeBron and PG are obviously the top guys, but there’s so much mid range value I can’t see paying up for them. I especially like Bazemore, Green and Stanley Johnson in a bounce-back spot. Matt Barnes is cheap and could get a bump with Gasol out.

PF: Boogie night. If you can afford him, play him. If not, consider Nerlens on the other side, and Aldridge who has been killing it lately. Markieff, as always, is a great option, but his price is coming up.

C: I like Gasol, but Drummond is another solid option whose price has dropped considerably. Dieng is the chalk value play (and a great one)…you might be better off paying up for Towns in tournaments to differentiate a little bit. For value I like Alex Len.

That’s it for me, good luck tonight. Tweet me @kmarkobarstool with your picks or to talk shit, whatever. Also if you’re depositing to play make sure to use my referral and we’ll both get hooked up with some stuff.

Also got a pretty sweet tool for everyone to check out. RotoGrinders is the main site I’ve been using for the past year for matchup charts and expert analysis (real experts, not bloggers doing this in their free time), and they have an app now that pushes all NBA injury news directly to your phone the second it hits the wire. So if you’re like me and keep getting screwed by last minute scratches because you didn’t check Twitter in time, or if you want to get a leg up in tournaments by grabbing late breaking value plays, I highly recommend it.

Oh, and it’s free.
