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 twelve games on tonight’s NBA slate, let’s get into some of the Multiplier plays on SuperDraft.
Trae Young (1.05x)
Any NBA DFS slate with double digit games can be extremely tough to sift through, especially in the last month of the regular season. Young stands out first to me at the guard position with the Hawks still missing Collins. Young’s usage rate shoots up to 37% with Collins off the floor this season, and with Collins out for eight of the Hawks last twelve games we’ve seen Trae take advantage. Young is averaging 62.3 SuperDraft points per game over those eight, and the game against the Hornets tonight is one of the best fantasy environments on the slate. With a 240 implied total and the Hawks one-point road favorites, Trae would have a leg up on the other All-Star caliber guard options once we have to make decisions between them and any value that opens before lock.
Devin Booker (1.15x)
We’ve talked about Booker multiple times and with Chris Paul still out, it’s a good idea to consider him again. He’s averaging 54 SuperDraft points per game since the regular season resumed after the All-Star break, and now he gets a matchup against Houston who is in the bottom third of the league in defensive metrics against guards. The Suns are on the second half of a back-to-back after blowing out the Pelicans last night. Booker played just 30 minutes (posting 51.25 SuperDraft points) against New Orleans and should be fine to play full minutes tonight. Even though this game is sporting an 11-point spread in favor of the Suns, I expect the game to hang in the balance long enough that Booker can see full run here and should put up another 50+ SuperDraft points tonight. I would rather Young over Booker if forced to choose between the two.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (1x)
No hot takes here. Recommending the reigning Finals MVP always feels like “duh” to write up, but he projects as a top option at forward even with his 1x multiplier. The Bucks take on the Kings tonight in a game with a 241.5 implied total, which checks in at second highest on this twelve-game slate. Milwaukee is 8.5-point favorites, a spread which indicates some elevated blowout risk but if accurate should provide a good chance for Antetokounmpo to play full minutes. He averages 58.9 SuperDraft points per game this season and there’s not a single player on this Sacramento roster with a prayer of slowing him down. I think the field could flock towards Kevin Durant and Luka Doncic at the 1x tier and while both of those plays are superb, I prefer a lower owned Giannis in a game with an implied total 20 points higher.
Trendon Watford (1.8x)
The one piece of value we will discuss today is the Portland rookie. The Blazers have had the tank in full throttle for a few weeks now, and Watford has been getting major minutes, even entering the starting lineup at the four next to Drew Eubanks in the frontcourt. That move by coach Chauncey Billups has maximized Watford’s minutes, and his fantasy production has followed. Watford has averaged 37.2 SuperDraft points per game over his last six and 1.12 SuperDraft points per minute over that span. At his 1.8x multiplier he stands out to me as a solid value as of this writing, but we need to keep an eye on the Portland injury report. Justice Winslow is listed questionable after missing the last six games, and if he’s active it’s possible he could push Watford back to a bench role and out of consideration for me on SuperDraft.
Nikola Jokic (1x)
Just to confirm with any frequent readers of this article, yes, we are going back to the reigning MVP. Jokic has averaged 60.5 SuperDraft points per game this season, the highest mark in the league. He’s turned it up a notch recently, averaging 69.4 SuperDraft points per game over his last six appearances and a full 2 SuperDraft points per minute in that span. The Nuggets are 6.5-point road favorites in a game with a 229.5 implied total. The Wizards don’t have anyone on their roster capable of slowing down the Joker. Denver and Washington have already had their first meeting of the season back in December, a six-point Nuggets victory that saw Jokic post 75.25 SuperDraft points in just 30.5 minutes. Out of all the plays discussed in this article near the 1x multiplier floor, Jokic is the strongest and the first I’m clicking into my lineup.
