After only two games last night, we are back with the massive slates with tonight’s eleven-gamer. There is a lot to break down tonight, and we must start with all the questionable tags. Tons of stars are rocking the Q tag across the slate right now, so we are waiting eagerly on some big news. Our free content here will focus on strong plays with the information we have now, while our premium content will be more focused on some potential priorities if guys are ruled out. 

Here’s Two Core Plays For DFS Basketball 1/28/22 (using DraftKings Values)

Point Guard   
Shooting GuardC. McCollum $7,300
Small Forward   
Power Forward   
CenterJ. Poeltl $6,400

We mentioned how CJ McCollum was a priority for us last time around as he has to take on higher usage with Damian Lillard sidelined. McCollum has been too cheap since his return from injury, especially as it has become clear he can take on a full workload. McCollum went for 37 FPTS last time out, but we have seen him score over 40 FPTs often in this opportunity without Lillard. He is too cheap at $7,300 here, and a fantastic matchup against Houston makes him one of our favorite options tonight.  

Jakob Poeltl has been incredibly productive for the Spurs as of late, and it is surprising that he is not more expensive than $6,400 for this one. Poeltl scored 46.3 FPTS in the last game, and he is averaging 43.3 FPTS per game on the season. He has gone over 37 FPTS in each of the last seven games, in what has been a remarkable stretch. 

Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 1/27/22 (using DraftKings Values)

With eleven games tonight there are a ton of places we want to go with our salary, and a ton of stars we want exposure to. We are going to be very light on some of the stars that are less appealing tonight, as there is a ton of competition for who we spend up for. Trae Young is a fade for us at $10,600. He is too expensive for his typical production, and his upside is not as good now that everyone is healthy on Atlanta.

Here Is What Your Get If You Subscribe For $15 Per Month or $99 For The Year…
• One star guard who is too cheap tonight.
• A few wings from the Spurs who are priorities for us.
• A potential lock from the Houston Rockets.
• A few key questionable tags we are keeping an eye on.

 Sign up here!

Point Guard 

Cole Anthony – ($6,800 DK) A few less productive nights caused the price to drop rapidly on Anthony, but as he showed last time out, he is the number one option for this team. Anthony is averaging 36.8 FPTS on the season, and he has been showing fantastic upside throughout the year. We saw one of his bigger games last time out, as he poured in 52.5 FPTS against the Clippers. The Magic have a fantastic matchup tonight, and we love getting to Anthony at a sub $7,000 price tag. 

Shooting Guard 

Devin Vassell – ($4,000 DK) The San Antonio Spurs offer a lot of value tonight, as a few of their players are too cheap for how they have been producing. Vassell is averaging over 25 FPTS across the past ten days, as he has gone well over 20 FPTS in four of the past five games. He has shown upside of 30 and 40 FPTS in that stretch, as he has been taking more usage for the Spurs.  

Small Forward

Terance Mann  ($4,000 DK) The Clippers are gutted right now, as Marcus Morris has joined Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on the sideline. Mann has been playing around 30 minutes in competitive games, and his usage has been solid in the last few outings. We do not need too much out of Mann at this price point, but the upside is there.

Power Forward 

Keldon Johnson – ($5,100 DK) Johnson was a core play for us last time at $5,000, and he was great with 33.75 FPTS. Johnson played 36 minutes in the last one, and we expect him to play over 30 minutes when games stay close. He is averaging 27.4 FPTS on the season, so there is no doubt that he is too cheap at only $5,100.


KJ Martin – ($3,700 DK) Martin has played solid run in the past few games, while he has scored 30.5 and 27.5 FPTS respectively in the last two outings. He looks good if everyone is good to go for the Rockets, but our real interest comes with Christian Wood’s questionable status. If Wood is out there will be a lot to like from Houston, and Martin will be a lock for us. 

General strategy  

We have to use this space to talk about some of the questionable tags on this slate. Wood and Kevin Porter Jr. could both miss tonight’s game for Houston, which would make them a top source of value. The other huge tag we are waiting on is Jimmy Butler, as we will want whoever starts on Miami if he is going to join Kyle Lowry on the sideline.
