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 late-breaking injury news and starting lineup changes. With 11 games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Dejounte Murray (1.05x)
The Spurs All-Star guard has taken a big leap on the court this year, and he’s become one of the most coveted fantasy assets at his position. Murray is my favorite low-multiplier tonight. He’s been on fire of late as well, seemingly fueled by a combination of his initial All-Star snub and the trade of his former backcourt mate Derrick White and has averaged 58.3 SuperDraft points per game over his last seven. With White out of town, and backup Tre Jones out tonight, the minutes for Murray seem as safe as they have ever been. A matchup with lowly Oklahoma City, who will be without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Luguentz Dort, is about as appetizing as it gets for Murray and even at his 1.05x multiplier we should expect him to crack the 60 SuperDraft point mark tonight.
Coby White (1.65x)
Chicago will continue to be without Zach LaVine, Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso here, and we should expect Coby White to continue his high level of production for his multiplier. White has averaged 38.8 SuperDraft points per game over his last three games, which is more than plenty for us at his 1.65x multiplier. But I’m also focused on the elevated minutes over the last two games without LaVine. White averages 27.6 minutes per game this season, but he’s picked up 35.5 on average without LaVine this week. The matchup against Sacramento does nothing but enhance the outlook for White, who should remain in the starting lineup and projects for a similar minutes output. The Bulls have the third highest team total of the 22 teams on this slate, and White is my favorite Chicago piece to roster on tonight’s slate.
Julius Randle (1.15x)
The Julius Randle statistical revolution rolls on, but unfortunately for Knicks fans, it hasn’t been translating into wins. New York has lost six of their last seven games, but Randle has certainly made sure he’s gotten his. He’s averaged 55.7 SuperDraft points per game over that span. With the Knicks surprisingly favored at home tonight against their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Nets, I’m interested in riding Randle. With Barrett out and Rose still recovering from his ankle procedure, Randle will continue to see the increased usage. His multiplier has finally caught up to the increase in fantasy production. Still, he’s currently my favorite option in tournaments among the lower multiplier choices at forward on this slate.
Jaren Jackson Jr. (1.35x)
My interest in this play is contingent on Ja’s status. If he plays, Jackson Jr. becomes a secondary (but still palatable) option. What I really want to highlight here is just how much-increased opportunity Jackson Jr. sees with both Morant and Dillon Brooks off the floor this season. Jackson Jr. has seen an enormous increase in usage from 7.5% – 33.6% without those two on the court. Last night he was fantastic, posting a 35.5% usage rate and 1.65 SuperDraft points per minute. He could have broken the slate with a massive score if he got full minutes (was limited to 25.5 due to blowout). With Morant listed questionable again, Jackson Jr. is a priority play if Morant ends up sidelined.
Andre Drummond (1.65x)
I want to highlight one of Brooklyn’s new acquisitions here. I think Drummond can give him a run for his money as long as he remains on the court. Drummond has always been one of the best fantasy point-per-minute producers in the league. With him becoming a backup for the last two seasons, his multiplier is high when he does start. The Knicks are a team that will typically run a center on the court for 48 minutes. In his first appearance with Brooklyn, he posted 35.25 SuperDraft points in 24 minutes. We can also look at his last few games as a 76er. We see that he’s averaged 1.43 SuperDraft points per minute over his last eight appearances. At his multiplier, he projects close enough to Jokic for me to side with Drummond.
