Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to a four-game slate where hardly anyone is active. No, seriously, there are about 20 players in active and only eight total teams are slated to play. That leaves a ton of chalk, and a plethora of ways to pivot from the chalk, making this a very interesting night of DFS hoops. Without further ado, let’s get to work…

Although this seems obvious, Kevin Durant is the lock of the night, even at an $11,400 price point. With the insane amount of value available to choose from, Durant is by far the highest projected player of the evening, so he should be paired with the plethora of underpriced players. Sans Stephen Curry the last few games, Durant has managed a 42.0-percent usage rate and has scored 39.5 points per game (PPG), grabbed 9.0 rebounds per game, dished out 5.0 assists per game and posted 65.0 fantasy points per game (FPPG). The total for the Lakers/Warriors tilt tonight is by far the highest of the evening and the game is expected to remain reasonably close with half the Warriors team out (Curry, Draymond Green, David West and Patrick McCaw have all been ruled out while Klay Thompson is listed as questionable). Last night, a long forward like Durant, Wilson Chandler, scored a career-high in points (PTS) and the team simply does not possess a single player capable of slowing a dominant forward down. Simply put: Durant is a must-play.
