LeBron James, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

DraftKings Price: $10,600

There's only one player on tonight's short slate with a five-figure salary, and that's the King. The Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James head to New York to take on the Brooklyn Nets in what's expected to be a close, high-scoring game.

As is the case with many teams, LeBron has a history of dominating the Nets. He's scored at least 52.5 DraftKings points against them in six straight games, including at least 64.5 in three of his past four. He has two triple-doubles in that span and has scored at least 29 real-world points in each game, posting an average of 32.8.

James is coming off a horrendous game against the Washington Wizards in which he scored just 13 points and turned the ball over 4 times in a 128-110 loss. He'll look to bounce back tonight against a Nets team that is giving up 111.8 points per game, sixth-worst in the Eastern Conference.

We project James to drop 53.4 DraftKings points on the Nets, by far the highest projected score on the slate.
