3 NBA DraftKings Value Plays to Target on 11/21/18
Dario Saric, PF, Minnesota Timberwolves
DraftKings Price: $4,200
It sure hasn't taken long for Dario Saric to framp up to speed with his new team. The Minnesota Timberwolves forward has seen his minutes rise from 20 in his first game to 29 minutes in the Wolves' 100-87 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
Tonight, he and the Wolves play their fourth game in a row at home, this time against the sixth-place Denver Nuggets. Though the Nuggets are just 26th in pace this season, tonight's game still should be relatively high-scoring if we're buying into tonight's total of 218 points.
Saric is averaging 21.25 DraftKings points per game with his new team, which equates to a value of over 5.0 DraftKings points per $1,000 based on his salary of $4,200. That ratio may seem rather simplistic, but it gives you a solid baseline of a player's potential value before even delving into matchup stats. And the Nuggets are giving up the ninth-most DraftKings points per game to opposing fours, according to FantasyPros.
We have Saric projected for 27.5 DraftKings points tonight, which makes him our third-highest point-per-dollar play on the entire slate.
