NBA DFS Wednesday, December 26th
Action packed NBA Christmas day is behind us, and it has been very entertaining. 20 teams who didn't play on Christmas are in action today, and here are my NBA DFS picks for Wednesday, December 26th:
Anthony Davis – Power Forward, New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis (along with Kawhi) is the biggest star that didn't play on Christmas. And that's why he is a logical choice for DFS players on Wednesday. The Brow is going to play against the Mavericks, and both teams are pushing to make the playoffs. New Orleans is going to need a big performance from Davis, again, which he usually delivers.
Even though Davis would be my first choice on Wednesday, there is a couple more power forwards to look at.
Lauri Markannen from Chicago has been playing pretty well, and the Bulls are still without Portis, Lavine, and Parker. So the majority of the scoring load will fall on young Markannen, and that's why he is a valuable DFS pick for games to come.
Jaren Jackson Jr. is another young player with a bright future. He is among the league leaders in blocks, and often he is the no.1 scoring option for the Grizzlies.
Andre Drummond – Center, Detroit Pistons
At the center position, there is a 2-player dilemma in my opinion. I have listed Andre Drummond as a player to pick, just because he is the best rebounder in the league, and he will go against the worst rebounding team in the league in Washington. You can pretty much guarantee that he is going to get 20 or more rebounds.
However, Drummond is quite expensive, and you might want to get someone cheaper at center, while still getting quality production.
Then you might go for Phoenix’ Deandre Ayton, who is lately showing why he was the no.1 pick. He is averaging 22.8 points and 15.6 rebounds over the last five games. The Suns are playing against Orlando Magic, who are on a three-game losing streak which means Phoenix might come up with another win, and Ayton should have another great performance.
Danilo Gallinari - Small Forward, LA Clippers
Danilo Gallinari provided excellent value for the fantasy owners in the last five games, as he is averaging 25.6/6.6/2.8 in that period. Since the Clippers are playing Sacramento, who is a fast paced team (2nd in the league in pace), and because both teams are above average offensively and in the bottom 10 in defensive rating - you can count on a lot of points in this game.
Shooting guard – Buddy Hield, Sacramento Kings
From the same game, Buddy Hield from Sacramento is another guy who is on fire lately. He scored over 20 in the last seven games, and the Kings have been running on his and De’Aaron Fox’ engine over that streak.
Devin Booker from the Suns is also almost a lock to have a great game, as well as Bradley Beal from the Wizards, as both are the leaders for their respective teams.
And for cheaper options, take a look at Andrew Wiggins (6200$ and 6400$ on DK and FD). He has pretty solid lately, and against the Bulls, he shouldn’t have much defensive resistance on the wing and could score over 20 points again.
Jamal Murray - Point Guard, Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray is really cheap at DraftKings (6300$), and if you are playing there, he is an excellent value for that salary. Since half the Nuggets are injured (Thomas, Harris, Porter, Millsap, Barton) most of the heavy lifting is done by Murray and Jokic. Jokic is another excellent option at the center that I didn’t mention above, and the most expensive one.
Murray should be solid against the Spurs and get you over 30 FPTS, which is his usual threshold.
For other options, I already mentioned Fox, who is a bit more expensive but undoubtedly valuable, and he is averaging 20 points, ten assists, and three steals in the last three games.
