We have a five-game NBA DFS slate on SuperDraft Thursday. Below, we’ll dive in and break down our three top plays of the slate.

Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies (Point Guard | 1.1x Score Multiplier)

Morant is something special and is one of the NBA’s most exciting players this season. He’s coming off a dominant performance versus the Warriors Tuesday where he put up 29 points with eight assists and five rebounds in 37 minutes. He now gets a pace-up boost, as the Timberwolves are averaging 102.3 possessions per game and the Grizzlies are averaging 101.8. The other positive sign for Morant is that the Timberwolves are allowing opposing guards to average 20 points and 7.6 assists per game, inching close to the double-double bonus for Morant.

Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets (Center | 1x)

It’s hard to pass up on Jokic no matter who he faces. He may have a “difficult” matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers, but he’s proven to be matchup-proof. In the three games Jokic has faced them this season, he is averaging 29 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4 assists. The big man is on such a dominant stretch that he has put together nine straight double-doubles. He also hasn’t dropped below 44 SuperDraft points in those nine games. Jokic at the 1x multiplier is just as good and juicy as any other perfect spot you may find.

Terance Mann, Los Angeles Clippers (Shooting Guard | 1.7x)

Mann’s play is intriguing as he lends a helping hand off of the bench and can still fill a stat sheet. He is currently averaging 29.6 minutes per game with 10.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists. He has now put up back-to-back games of 20-plus SuperDraft points and is in line for a boost. The Los Angeles Clippers will be facing the New Orleans Pelicans in what should be a slower-paced game as both teams average 99.6 possessions per game. Using the FTN Daily advanced DvP tool, Mann’s two skill factors get a boost versus the Pelicans and should be close to 20.2 points for this game.
