3 NBA DraftKings Value Plays to Target on 11/12/18
Quinn Cook, PG, Golden State Warriors
DraftKings Price: $5,000
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is listed as out for Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. With Shaun Livingston questionable as well, we're almost certainly going to see Quinn Cook get his second start in a row.
Cook had played limited minutes until his recent spot-start in Saturday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Yet, he's been consistent when given run. He's scored in double figures in four straight games, including 27 across 41 minutes against Brooklyn. Tonight he gets a plus matchup against a Clippers defense that is giving up the tenth most points to opposing point guards, according to FantasyPros.
In 18 games with Steph Curry over the past two seasons, Cook has averaged just 9.8 DraftKings points. In 25 games without Curry, that number has more than doubled to 22 DraftKings points per game. He's started 19 of those 25 games, averaging an even higher 27.6 DraftKings points across an average of 32 minutes.
While his price has climbed $2,000 in the past two games, he still offers great value this evening if he gets the start.
