Welcome to the first addition of Tiers Talk where I will breakdown DraftKings Tiers main slate.
James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo
Tier 1 is always the “stud” tier and tonight it’s pretty straightforward. While I understand he’s always capable of 60+ upside I think it’s safe to eliminate Giannis from consideration as I don’t think he hits his ceiling vs the lowly Bulls. That leaves us with Harden vs Westbrook. Even with Harden’s lackluster performance his previous two games Harden is the TiersGAWD. Harden has CP3 to worry about, Westbrook has Paul George; any time Harden is in tiers I’m looking to target him especially during this historic run. Harden is the guy I want in tier 1.
