NBA DFS (Tuesday, January 21)
Welcome to today’s copy of SI Fantasy’s NBA DFS daily plays.
After a full day of basketball yesterday to celebrate MLK Day, we only get one single game on the slate today. DraftKings and FanDuel each have single-game contests, while Yahoo is combining tonight’s game with tomorrow’s slate. Here are a few players I like on DraftKings and FanDuel tonight.
PG Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks
DraftKings: $13,200, FanDuel: $17,500
Luka is the most skilled player and the top plate to target for tonight’s NBA action. If I’m playing on FanDuel, I will put Luka in my MVP spot. His salary will be higher, but he can tally monster numbers. On DraftKings, I would put Luka in the utility spot.
PG/SG Lou Williams, Los Angeles Clippers
DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $11,500
On a single-game slate, I think it would be a mistake not to have exposure to bucket master Lou Williams. Lou Will is coming off a 50-point fantasy night from the last time the Clippers and Mavericks played. He for 21 points, six rebounds, and six assists.

C Ivica Zubac, Los Angeles Clippers
DraftKings: $4,600, FanDuel: $8,500
Zubac has been playing around 20 minutes per game, and he puts up around 20 fantasy points. On FanDuel, I would put Zubac in my start slot. I would throw him in the utility spot on DraftKings.
PF/C Patrick Patterson, Los Angeles Clippers
DraftKings: $2,000, FanDuel: $6,000
Patterson is a very low-salaried option for your DraftKings captain spot. On the court, he won’t give you many minutes, but when he is out there is can knock down a three or two, couple that with four or five rebounds, and you have a value in your captain spot.
