3 NBA DraftKings Value Plays to Target on 12/28/18
Kelly Oubre, SG/SF, Phoenix Suns
DraftKings Price: $4,600
The Phoenix Suns' recently acquired guard/forward Kelly Oubre hasn't yet started a game for his new team, but that hasn't stopped him from seeing significant court time. Through four games with the Suns, Oubre is averaging 29.8 minutes, up from the 26.0 he was averaging as a member of the Washington Wizards.
His new team is giving him plenty of opportunity, and he's been taking advantage for the most part. He's scored in double figures in three of those four games, tallying at least 28.5 DraftKings points in each of those three games. He'll have another excellent opportunity to continue that output again this evening in what should be a fast-paced matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are a surprising 5-5 in their past 10 games.
Tonight's game has a total set at 226.5 points. While not the highest total on the slate (there are two at and above 230), that's still a healthy total indicative of a fantasy-friendly environment. Our models show Oubre taking advantage of that. We have him projected for 13.5 points, 4.5 boards, and 24.1 DraftKings points. If he can hit that level out output, it would equate to a value of nearly 5.4 DraftKings points per $1,000.
