James Harden, Karl-Anthony Towns highlight Rockets-Timberwolves game stack

With a very high O/U, Houston at Minnesota is an appealing game to stack players for Saturday’s main slate on DraftKings.

Who Should You Stack in Rockets vs. Timberwolves?

The obvious answer to that question is James Harden ($12,200) and Karl-Anthony Towns ($10,100). Both players will be very expensive, but both offer two of the higher ceilings on the main slate. Harden may be a little tired after playing last night vs. the Pacers — same goes for KAT with the T-Wolves playing the Wizards. But I don’t think Harden will rest and KAT shouldn’t be held back at all. Harden has been on an absolute war path with Eric Gordon out, plus Clint Capela (concussion) is now on the shelf, sitting at least Friday and Saturday. SO more usage for Harden, who hasn’t seen his fantasy outputs hampered by Russ’ arrival.

Other names to keep an eye on are Andrew Wiggins ($8,400) and P.J. Tucker ($4,400). Wiggins has been on a scoring binge with at least 30 points in five of six games before missing Friday’s game due to personal reasons, and his price has risen $1,700 since Nov. 6. Jeff Teague ($5,100) is back from illness and his price is still affordable given this game environment. Tyson Chandler ($4,200) should start again at center and there are some value guards in Ben McLemore ($3,800), Austin Rivers ($3,700) and Chris Clemons ($3,000) for Houston.
