Ten games are listed for Wednesday's NBA DFS DraftKings and FanDuel Slates. Both slates begin at 7:00 p.m. EDT tonight. Below, we'll look at the best players to target for both production and value this Wednesday, October 26.
NBA DFS Star Picks
Keldon Johnson, PF/SF, San Antonio Spurs (DraftKings $6.8k, FanDuel $7.2k)
Keldon Johnson has emerged as the leading scorer for the Spurs, entering Wednesday's game averaging 20.5, along with 6.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Johnson is now in his fourth season, and he's shown massive improvement from year to year. So far, he's been very consistent fantasy-wise through four games, making him a very safe pick for tonight's slate.
San Antonio squares off against the Minnesota Timberwolves once again tonight after defeating them 115-106 on Monday. Tonight though, the Spurs will be without wing Devin Vassell, who tallied 23 points, nine boards, and seven assists last game. With Vassell out of the lineup, look for Johnson to step up and see increased usage in Wednesday's rematch.
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets (DraftKings $10.9k, FanDuel $11.0k)
Two-time MVP Nikola Jokic had a really quiet game in Portland last time out, finishing with one of his lower fantasy outputs of the past few years. Tonight, the Nuggets return home to face the struggling Lakers. Last time he faced LA, Jokic had a 38-point, 18-rebound performance, and he should go off again tonight as Denver looks to get back on track.
Other NBA DFS Star Picks: Caris Levert, SG/SF, Cleveland Cavaliers (DraftKings $6.2k, FanDuel $5.9k), Jalen Brunson, New York Knicks (DraftKings $6.6k, FanDuel $6.9k)
NBA DFS Value Picks
Patrick Beverley, PG/SG, Los Angeles Lakers (DraftKings $4.5k, FanDuel $4.9k)
Patrick Beverley has struggled from the field through his first few games in a Lakers uniform, but tonight his team travels to Denver to face a defense that's allowing the most points in the NBA. The Lakers have listed guard Russell Westbrook as doubtful, and if he is ruled out, Beverley will have more scoring and playmaking opportunities in Westbrook's absence. Look for the veteran Beverley to fill up the stat sheet tonight as his team seeks their first victory of the season.
Other NBA DFS Value Picks: Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Utah Jazz (DraftKings $5.6k, FanDuel $5.3k), Josh Richardson, SG/SF, San Antonio Spurs (DraftKings $3.9k, FanDuel $4.6k)
