He is Averaging 40.5 DK points and 39.6 FD points per game, John Wall seems to be in great form. Part of this is due to his 28.2 usage rate this season. He comes into a matchup against the Hawks that ranks 6 against point guards as they allow an average of 46 fantasy points to their opposition. Not to mention they allow an average of 225.44 fantasy points per game this year and the game is projected to be played at a decent pace.

A lot of skill and a good matchup for John Wall tonight! Projected Points 52.

 

Dennis Smith Jr. DAL @ IND Fanduel 4800 Draftkings 5100

He averages 26.2 DK points and 24.7 FD points per game beside his 0.92 pts/minute.  He typically gets a decent amount of opportunities per game as he maintains an average usage rate of 29.2%.

All signs pointing in the right direction for Dennis Smith Jr., give him a look! Projected Points 31.

 

Kris Dunn CHI vs NYK Fanduel 7900 Draftkings 7200

Kyrie Irving BOS @ CHA Fanduel 8600 Draftkings 8500

Set to matchup against the Hornets, there is a lot to like about Kyrie Irving .

It has translated into an average of 39.2 DK points and 38.12 fanduel points per game. This can be heavily contributed to his 31.7% usage rate, which implies he is getting decent production on both sides of the court, especially on offense. Stuffing the stat sheet against a not so great defensive team in the Hornets as they give up 214.87 points per game seems highly probable for Kyrie Irving. Projected Points 36.
