We’ve got a seven-game main slate on tap for Saturday with plenty of options to sift through. Today, we’ll go over some players you can consider for both cash games and GPPs on DraftKings. Here are the top targets at shooting guard for the slate.

Which Small Forwards Should You Target on DraftKings?

Kawhi Leonard, LAC vs. ATL, $9,900 — With Paul George back in the fold, it’ll be interesting to see how Leonard and PG-13 operate together. But for now, we know that PG will be on a minutes limit, which should mean Kawhi is the top dog still. The Hawks play up in pace and the Clippers should be heavy favorites in a game with a high O/U. A blowout is possible, but that would mean Kawhi probably does enough damage.

Editor’s Note: Kawhi Leonard (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game vs. the Hawks.

Jabari Parker, ATL at LAC, $7,000 — On the other side of Hawks-Clippers is Parker, who has been seeing insane usage lately (this shouldn’t surprise anyone). I hate Parker’s actual game, but in terms of fantasy he’s got at least 30 DKFP in seven straight filling in for John Collins.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, TOR at DAL, $5,400 — We’ve now seen RHJ’s price jump up from $3,000 two games ago to $5,400 on Saturday’s main slate. He’s playing big minutes for Nick Nurse with the Raptors’ rotation thin due to injuries to Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and OG Anunoby. RHJ should also benefit from the matchup vs. Dallas, which is allowing the 25th-most DK points to opposing SFs.
