NBA Morning Thoughts 02.04.19

As our stomachs are still turning from the mass amount of wings and the visual of that “Chunky Milk” commercial we are back with a fun six-game NBA DFS slate. Here are my top targets…

Trae Young (FD $7600, DK $7600) vs WAS

Young has been balling of late going for 40+ fantasy points in four of his last five games and is back tonight in an elite spot vs a Wizards team that would struggle to contain me. PG is loaded with a lot of strong value so Young is strictly a GPP target, but an elite GPP target. The abundance of value will also keep Young’s ownership down. In DFS we need to get over our biases quick, two weeks ago this is an absurd price for Young. It’s not anymore, and it wouldn’t surprise me if his price continues to rise.

Darren Collison (FD $6500, DK $6200) vs NO

Darren Collison is a safe pick with upside. Collison is averaging .95 FD and .99 DK points per minute over the last 14 days with Oladipo OFF the court and besides for two blowouts, Collison has been right around the 32 minute mark in those contents. The Pelicans fifth ranked pace and 25th ranked defensive rating provides Collison with an elite matchup. Neither site has him priced him too cheap nor too high and Collison get’s a production bump because of the matchup. Tomas Satoransky is the other middle priced PG in an elite matchup, Tomas is a top target vs Atlanta but 1 vs 1 I trust Collison more.
