3 NBA DraftKings Value Plays to Target on 4/10/18
Alex Len, C, Phoenix Suns
DraftKings Salary: $5,700
The Phoenix Suns are completely shorthanded once again tonight, as Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Josh Jackson, and Troy Daniels are all out. The impactful news for Alex Len is the likely absence of Marquese Chriss, who coach Triano doesn't expect to play either. Chriss has been playing around 30 minutes a night for Phoenix, so Len should pick up plenty of minutes if he sits. With Alan Williams and Tyson Chandler also out, Len and Dragan Bender are really the only bigs left on the roster for the Suns' season finale.
Huge minutes could lead to huge production for Len, who has averaged over a DraftKings point per minute all season long. He needs just 27.5 DraftKings points at this price tag, and we saw what he could do with extended playing time the last time he faced Dallas. He put up 39 DraftKings points in 27 minutes in that one, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise against a Dallas Mavericks frontcourt that struggled to contain opposing bigs all season. If Chriss ends up sitting, Len becomes an awesome upside play.
