We have a bigger eight-game NBA DFS slate tonight, as there are a few factors we need to talk about here. The Phoenix Suns are resting three starters against the Thunder tonight, so they look amazing for DFS value. We also have a lot of value from the Oklahoma City Thunder, who have been dealing with major issues for a while now. We are looking at a stars and scrubs lineup here, as we have a few fantastic options under $4,000.

Here’s Two Core Plays For DFS Basketball 4/3/22 (using DraftKings Values)

Point GuardC. Paul $8,200
Shooting Guard   
Small Forward   
Power ForwardJ. McGee $3,800

Chris Paul is the only star that the Suns are not resting tonight, so we expect him to do a lot in his time on the floor. CP3 will have the ball in his hands a lot here, and he will have the green light to shoot it as much as he wants. Paul always has fantastic upside, and it looks a lot better with all the injuries. The Thunder are a fantastic DFS matchup, so there is no reason to hesitate with this play.

The Phoenix Suns look fantastic in the frontcourt as well, as there are going to be a ton of extra minutes going around with Deandre Ayton sidelined. JaVale McGee is an absolute priority for us in this spot, especially if he ends up in the starting unit. McGee is averaging over 20 FPTS on the season and he went for 27.5 FPTS last time with Ayton playing. He is only $3,800 tonight, so we expect him to crush value in this spot against the Thunder.

Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 4/3/22 (using DraftKings Values)

Pascal Siakam has been the best DFS producer on the Toronto Raptors this season, averaging 44 FPTS per game. However, his price reflects his strong play as he is all the way up at $9,500. Siakam and the Raptors have an awful matchup against Miami tonight, and we have plenty of options to spend up elsewhere on this slate.

Point Guard

Jordan Poole – ($8,100 DK) The price on Poole has risen back up after his ridiculous price tag last night, but we are still happily rostering him due to a terrific matchup with the Sacramento Kings. The Kings are one of the fastest teams in the NBA, and they have been a consistent matchup target for us over the past few years. Poole went for 50 FPTS last night and 64.25 FPTS in the game before. Poole has a ton of upside with Curry out, and we are betting on seeing it against the Kings.

Shooting Guard

Landry Shamet – ($3,000 DK) Although he is typically not the best DFS producer in the league, it is hard not to like Shamet at only $3,000 with Devin Booker sidelined. Shamet is likely to start here, but he should see a massive minute’s boost regardless. We do not need him to do much at $3,000, while Booker’s absence gives him some real upside.  

Small Forward

RJ Barrett – ($7,900 DK) The New York Knicks look great in general tonight, as they are missing Julius Randle for an easy matchup against the Orlando Magic. Barrett has had some massive games without Randle in the past, and he is consistently taking on monster usage right now. We know that Barrett has fantastic upside from all his shot attempts, and we do not expect him to struggle against the Orlando defense.

Power Forward

Jaylen Hoard – ($4,700 DK) The Oklahoma City Thunder are missing too many players to name right now, as almost all their core is sidelined. We saw Hoard play 40 minutes in his first game of a ten-day contract, as he crushed with 46.5 FPTS. Hoard was very productive, but we expect the minutes to hold up if he continues to start.


Bismack Biyombo – ($3,000 DK) We must wait to see who starts here between McGee and Biyombo, but the way they are priced they both look solid. Biyombo should see a boost here either way, and we know he was priced closer to $6,000 last time Ayton was out.  

General strategy

There are almost too many options tonight, as we already have a ton of injury value. For Cash games, we are looking to play three or four Suns in all of our lineups, as they look like the best team on the slate as of now. The Suns will be very high owned for tournaments, so we will keep it to a few of their players. One good way to get contrarian with the Suns is to play whichever center does not start, as whoever starts will likely be over-owned. Good luck tonight, and make sure to watch for any more injury news.
