DraftKings NBA Sleeper Picks – December 10th

What’s up everyone. Alex here, and I am back with my DraftKings NBA sleeper picks for December 10th, 2016. Tonight we get a huge slate with ten games to attack. Be sure to follow all the injury news up until the 7:00 PM EST lock tonight, to see if any new injury news comes up. As always if any of these picks help you win or if you need any advice, let me know on Twitter Hunta512.

PG/SG: Langston Galloway: (4,400) Even though both Jrue Holiday (toe) and E’Twaun Moore (toe) are listed as questionable for tonight’s game vs The Clippers, both guards are expected to miss their third straight game. With both out the last two games, Galloway has been huge for this team off the bench. Monday night vs The Grizzlies he scored 32.75 DK points in 36 minutes and then 30 DK points in 28 minutes vs The Sixers on Thursday. In these two games, he is shooting 50% from the field with a 27.6% usage rate, which is the second highest on the team only behind Anthony Davis. (32.9%)

Galloway will continue his sixth man role tonight and should play close to 30 minutes again in this tough matchup with The Clippers, who are the best team in The NBA defending PGs.  But this ranking is mostly based off the defense of Chris Paul, who shouldn’t defend Galloway because he plays mostly with the second unit. His price has increased to $4,400, but he still remains a value with these minutes and usage. Galloway is one of my favorite plays of the night and is very valuable on DraftKings where he can be rostered as a SG.

C: Nikola Jokic: (5,200) Jokic has been balling lately, recording four straight double doubles, and averaging 36.4 DK points in his last four games. His minutes have also been more consistent in this stretch, averaging 26 minutes a night, which is three more minutes than his season average. The big man has also been a much more effective rebounder, leading the team with a 22.3% rebound percent.

Tonight he will look to continue his improved play against The Magic who rank 10th vs Centers this year. But this matchup doesn’t worry me with The Magic having an opponent +/- of 2.37 defending centers this season. He also should see closer to 30 minutes tonight vs this Magic team that tends to always have a natural center on the floor. His price doesn’t reflect the way he has been playing and he is viable in all formats on Saturday night.

C: Ed Davis: (3,500) Davis was great in Thursday night’s loss to The Grizzlies, posting a  double- double in only 18 minutes off the bench. (28.5 DK points) He didn’t get the start for the injured Al-Farouq Aminu, but he clearly benefited with him out, posting a 25% usage rate to go along with a 20.4% rebound percent. It’s obviously only one game, but these are huge increases for Davis, who’s usage is usually a low 11%, and his rebound percentage only 16%.

With Aminu doubtful for tonight, Davis should play roughly 20 minutes again, and has a good chance to score 20+ DK points at this super cheap price. This is a solid matchup for him with The Pacers who rank 20th vs centers this season. It’s also possible that Davis draws the start over Meyers Leonard who was ineffective starting in place of Aminu on Thursday. This Blazers Pacers game looks like the best game environment of the night with a tight spread of 1.5 points, and a slate high 218 point total. You are going to want some exposure to this game, and I think Davis is nice cheap way to gain exposure in GPPs tonight.

Also Consider: Mason Plumlee, Rodney Stuckey, Rajon Rondo (only $5,900), Aaron Gordon (if Biyombo, Vucevic, or Green are out), Evan Fournier (if Magic shorthanded), Malcolm Brogdon, Elfrid Payton, John Henson, Marcin Gortat, Tim Frazier, Toney Douglas (bettter if Troy Daniels is out), Zach Randolph, Marresse Speights (if Blake Griffin is out), and Mo Harkless.
