SuperDraft is one of the hottest platforms in the market for DFS players. SuperDraft offers a unique twist on your traditional DFS experience with game modes like “Multiplier” and “Super 15.”
This article will focus on daily plays from SuperDraft’s exclusive Multiplier game mode. By eliminating the traditional salary cap structure and providing a points multiplier for every player on the slate, there is almost limitless flexibility when building lineups on SuperDraft. You can load up on all the studs, but their point multipliers will be low. You can balance those plays out with some long shots that could score up to 2x their fantasy points to vault you to the top of the leaderboards.
As always with NBA DFS, make sure that you are on top of any injury news and starting lineup changes. With seven games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Tyrese Haliburton (1.2x)
The Pacers have a tough matchup tonight against the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. They’re currently 12.5-point underdogs on the road here. Even with the bleak outlook from a real hoops standpoint, there are still some Pacers options we should consider. Let’s start with Haliburton, the new franchise point guard who has been fantastic since joining the team last week. The second-year guard is averaging 106 touches per game through his first two appearances in a Pacers uniform. He’s recorded 40.75 and 56.75 SuperDraft points. Chris Duarte has already been ruled out of this game, which hurts the Pacers chances to win more than Haliburton’s fantasy outlook. The volume of opportunity is too great for me to ignore. To that point, I’m not overly concerned with the matchup with Jrue Holiday. Halliburton is a fantastic cash play and I have interest in GPPs as well.
Terry Rozier (1.35x)
The first thing that sticks out is the 245 implied total. To my knowledge, that’s the highest implied total in a game this season. It’s a feather in the cap of a fantasy-friendly environment. I want at least one piece of that game in every lineup tonight. However, multiple players is likely where I would end up in one lineup. While both Ball and Oubre are profiling as good plays, Rozier stands out at the guard spot. The Hornets remain shorthanded, and Rozier has been seeing big minutes for a while now. But his peripherals have picked up over the last four games He’s averaged 8 assists and 7.3 rebounds over that span. Combine that with the game environment, the fact that Rozier is likely to hoist double-digit three-point attempts tonight. He’ll likely get close to 40 minutes, and he gets the nod over Ball for me.
Joel Embiid (1x)
We’ve had a lot of success continuing to roster Embiid throughout this season. His forward eligibility on SuperDraft gives him extra value as a piece in your builds. His new running mate James Harden will not debut with the 76ers until after the upcoming All-Star break. So, Embiid will once again lead the charge for Philly. The matchup against Boston is not something we should shy away from. These teams have already met three times this season, giving us a nice sample size to reference. Through three games (105 minutes) Embiid is averaging 1.85 SuperDraft points per minute against the Celtics. This game is expected to stay close, with Boston currently 3-point road favorites, so we should get full minutes from Embiid (he’s averaged 32.6 minutes per game over his last five). He’s a priority for me at forward in any format.
Lance Stephenson (2x)
Back to the Pacers and their shorthanded backcourt. Not only is Chris Duarte already ruled out, but Malcolm Brogdon is questionable again and I would be surprised if he returns here. As long as Brogdon is ruled out, we should see elevated minutes from Stephenson. He stepped in for Duarte when he went down in the first quarter of the Pacers’ last game, and while he didn’t start the second half (that honor went to new acquisition Jalen Smith), he did play nearly 32 minutes off the bench. At his 2x tag on SuperDraft, we have to have some GPP interest in Stephenson here. He’s received elevated minutes in two of his last three games, averaging 30 SuperDraft points per game and 1.14 SuperDraft points per minute in that span. As long as Brogdon remains out, I have GPP interest in Stephenson at his ceiling 2x multiplier.
Karl Anthony Towns (1.1x)
My favorite piece from Minnesota is Towns. The Hornets have been the best matchup in the league this season for opposing centers, and they have struggled to an even greater extent against skilled centers like Towns. The Hornets are allowing opponents to shoot 62.6% from within six feet of the basket (where Towns has taken over half of his shot attempts) this season. With his ability to stretch the floor (41% from three this season), Towns is a nightmare matchup for the frontcourt of Mason Plumlee and Montrezl Harrell. The game log for the Timberwolves center doesn’t look great (and was limited by foul trouble last time out), but he’s still shown the ability to put up big scores any night he steps on the court. His rates across the board (27.7% usage, 19.2% assist rate and 15.1% rebounding rate) remain elite a
nd as of this writing he’s my priority play at center, assuming you roster Embiid at forward.
