Eight teams are featured for Tuesday's NBA DFS DraftKings and FanDuel Slates. Both slates begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT tonight. Let's look at the best players to target for both production and value this Tuesday, November 1.
NBA DFS Star Picks
Nikola Vucevic, C, Chicago Bulls (DraftKings $7.8k, FanDuel $8.3k)
Bulls big man Nikola Vucevic had a monster game versus the 76ers on Friday. The two-time All-Star finished with 23 points, 19 rebounds, and three assists despite his team losing. Vucevic has the ability to have games like this from time to time, but this is particularly impressive, considering the fact that he was up against one of the best defensive centers in the league in Joel Embiid. Tonight, the Bulls travel to face the Nets, who have allowed the third-most points in the NBA. Expect Vucevic to have a solid game tonight as Chicago looks to snap their two-game skid.
Karl-Anthony Towns, PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves (DraftKings $8.8k, FanDuel $9.3k)
Karl-Anthony Towns had his best game of the season on Saturday, ending with 26 points and 11 boards, as well as two blocks and a steal. Towns' rebounds have dipped with the acquisition of Rudy Gobert, but he still has the ability to score 25+ and grab double-digit rebounds game in and game out. Tonight, he'll match up with a Suns team that is without center DeAndre Ayton. The Suns also play Cameron Johnson at power forward, and this is a matchup where Towns should feast. Expect the Minnesota star to show out tonight against an undersized Phoenix frontcourt.
Other NBA DFS Star Picks: Devin Booker, SG/PG (DraftKings $9.0k, FanDuel $8.9k), DeMar Derozan, SG/SF/PF, Chicago Bulls (DraftKings $8.5k, FanDuel $8.2k)
NBA DFS Value Picks
Aleksej Pokusevski, PF/C, Oklahoma City Thunder (DraftKings $4.2k, FanDuel $4.4k)
Oklahoma City's rotations are sometimes difficult to predict, but the fact that Pokusevski started is a great sign moving forward. As a value play, he's one of the most affordable options on tonight's slate that can be counted on for production. Pokusevski excels at racking up defensive stats, and he has the ability to fill up the stat sheet across all categories. Expect the big man to have a solid output tonight versus the Magic, assuming he starts.
Other NBA DFS Value Picks: Cameron Johnson, SF/PF, (DraftKings $5.4k, FanDuel $4.8k), Tre Mann, Oklahoma City Thunder (DraftKings $5.3k, FanDuel $5.5k)
