NBA DFS Top Plays for Tuesday 01/24/23
Chris Paul, the point guard for the Phoenix Suns, returned from a two-week absence on Sunday and had a strong performance with 22 points, 6 rebounds, 11 assists, and 3 steals, contributing to 54.5 DraftKings points. With several key players out, he will need to continue to step up and shoulder a greater responsibility for the team. The Suns will play against the Charlotte Hornets, who have a poor defensive record, as they are ranked 28th in points allowed and 27th in defensive efficiency, making it a favorable matchup for Paul. He has a salary of $7,500 on DraftKings and $8,200 on FanDuel.
Luka Doncic, point guard for the Dallas Mavericks, is considered a safe play for cash games on any slate. He leads all players with an average of 63 DraftKings points per game, and has a floor of 45 points. He has a high usage rate of 40% and has scored at least 80 fantasy points eight times this season. He will be facing the Washington Wizards’ 17th-ranked defense and will have to shoulder more responsibility with teammate Wood out. His recent performance has been slightly lower with 58.9 and 46 FanDuel points in his last two games. However, his price on FanDuel has dropped to $11,900 making him a bargain and a good buy-low target

Nikola Jokic, center for the Denver Nuggets, is considered a top candidate for MVP and is averaging 59 DraftKings points per game. He has scored at least 51 fantasy points in 27 of his last 28 games, generating a 61-point average in that span. He has a strong performance in his last matchup with New Orleans, scoring 72 DraftKings points. He is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, but if he plays, he has the potential to score a third straight 60 FanDuel points. He has been the best player in fantasy when on the floor, averaging 1.76 DraftKings points per minute, and has increased that figure to 1.82 over the past month. His ownership may be low, making him a good target for reduced ownership.
Cameron Johnson, small forward/power forward for the Phoenix Suns, returned from injury and had a strong performance with 36 fantasy points in his first game back. He had a 37-point average in his three games before getting injured, showing an improvement in his game. He will be facing the Charlotte Hornets, who surrender the most fantasy points to opposing forwards, making it a favorable matchup. The Suns have been short-handed in recent weeks, and Johnson’s offensive production is crucial for the team. He played 30 minutes in the last game and should see an increase in playing time against the Hornets. He is underpriced at $5,200 on FanDuel, averaging 1.02 FanDuel points per minute this season.
Daniel Gafford, center for the Washington Wizards, is underpriced at $4,300 on DraftKings with a high upside. With the injury to Kristaps Porzingis and Rui Hachimura being sent to LA, Gafford is expected to have a 30-minute role as the starting center. He has shown potential when given more playing time, scoring at least 26 fantasy points in 10 games when playing 24 minutes or more. He has been productive in recent games, averaging 12.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks, but with a limited role. He has the potential for an expanded role against the Dallas Mavericks, who don’t have much size up front, making him worth considering. He has a good opportunity to thrive against the Mavericks, who allow opposing centers to shoot an average of 59.5 percent from the field.
With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to make the right picks for your fantasy lineup. However, by considering players like Chris Paul, Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, Cameron Johnson, and Daniel Gafford, you’ll have a solid foundation for your team. Remember to check for injuries and player matchups before finalizing your lineup. Good luck in your contests!
