NBA DFS Top Plays for Saturday 02/11/23
Nikola Jokic DK $11,600 – FD $12,000
The Denver Nuggets suffered a setback against the Orlando Magic, but they’re looking to bounce back as they face the Charlotte Hornets. With the possibility of Jamal Murray missing the game, Nikola Jokic is expected to step up and lead the Nuggets. The Hornets present a favorable matchup for Jokic, as they have a low Defensive Efficiency Rating (113.6) and a high Pace (103.4). Over the last five games, Jokic has been averaging 67 DKFP per game.
Jokic is a reliable pick for your lineup, having scored at least 49 fantasy points in 24 of his last 27 games. In that span, he’s been averaging 26.2 points, 12.3 rebounds, 11.1 rebounds, and 1.4 steals per game. With both Murray and Aaron Gordon potentially out, Jokic’s usage could increase, making him an even more attractive option against the Hornets, who are giving up the most fantasy points to opposing centers. In their first matchup this season, Jokic had an incredible 40-point, 27-rebound, and 10-assist performance.
The MVP contender is in top form, averaging 22.2 points, 14.8 rebounds, 12.6 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.0 steals across five games. He has a great chance to shine against the Hornets, who are surrendering the third-most points and second-most rebounds per game.
In conclusion, Jokic is a player to watch as he continues his MVP campaign. His dominance in the paint, triple-double potential, and favorable matchup against the Hornets make him a must-have pick for your lineup. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have Jokic in your lineup and watch him add to his already impressive stats.
Trae Young DK $9,500 – FD $9,700
The Spurs may be dealing with a depleted roster as they travel to face the Atlanta Hawks, following a grueling double-overtime loss to the Pistons. However, that only increases the appeal of Trae Young, who is one of the top options on the board.
Young is coming off a solid performance against the Suns, scoring 59.4 FanDuel points across 38 minutes, and he’s been consistently delivering fantasy points, with five out of his last six games seeing him score at least 42.6 FD points. San Antonio has been a prime target for DFS players all season long and Young has been no exception, averaging 45 Yahoo points per game and even better recently, with at least 39 Yahoo points in six straight games and a 49-point average in that span.
Trae’s recent form has been impressive, as he comes into Saturday’s game averaging 26 points and 11.5 assists and 49 fantasy points per game. With an elite floor and the opportunity for upside against the Spurs’ league-worst defense, Young is a must-have in all formats. He’s shown he can perform well against San Antonio in the past, with a season-high 60 fantasy points in his most recent meeting

Jalen Brunson DK $8,600 – FD $7,900
Jalen Brunson is definitely a player to consider for your DFS lineup. With a high floor of playing time, averaging 35 minutes per game, Brunson has been consistently producing good numbers, averaging 28.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 6.3 assists over his last 10 appearances.
With the Knicks facing off against the Jazz, who rank 26th in defense and 29th in fantasy points to guards, Brunson is in a great spot to continue his strong play. On top of that, the Jazz are on a back-to-back and have been struggling with on-ball defense all season long. Brunson’s price, especially on FanDuel, is also very favorable, making him a solid option in all formats.
Kristaps Porzingis DK $9,700 – $9,200
Porzingis has been playing at an incredibly high level lately, and with Kyle Kuzma out again on Saturday, he should continue to see an increased workload. The Pacers have struggled on defense this season, ranking 24th in the league in defensive efficiency, and playing at a fast pace that should suit Porzingis’ style.
He has a great opportunity to continue his recent scoring outburst and make a big impact in DFS lineups. Additionally, with a recent performance of 54.8 FD points and a stretch of three of four games with 48-60.3 FD points, Porzingis has proven his consistency and upside in this favorable matchup.
Julius Randle DK $10,300 – FD $9,300
Julius Randle is one of the most consistent fantasy performers in the league, providing a high floor and elite upside. He averages 35.9 minutes per game on the season. He has been a double-double machine, averaging 27.7 points and 12.8 rebounds over the past few weeks. These numbers have translated to an average of over 54 fantasy points per game, making him one of the safest big men in the league for fantasy purposes.
The Knicks offensive scheme, which revolves around Randle. He is the team’s primary playmaker and is involved in nearly every aspect of the offense. This role, combined with his high playing time, makes Randle a valuable fantasy asset and one of the most reliable options at the power forward position.
