DraftKings NBA picks: Top power forwards to target on Nov. 16

Giannis will cost a pretty penny, but makes for a great GPP play on Saturday’s main slate. We break down the top PF options.

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 power forward for the slate.

Which Power Forwards Should You Target on DraftKings?

Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL at IND, $12,000 — The Bucks and Giannis will be getting the Pacers on the second of a very tough back-to-back. Indiana has to deal with James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Friday and then gets the Greek Freak. Giannis has at least 60 DKFP in six straight, which has his price up $1,400 since October. He’s hard to fit in cash, but GPPs, you know what to do.

Paul George, LAC vs. ATL, $7,900 — I don’t care about a minutes limit, PG-13 looked too good in his debut. The Hawks are a cushy matchup and I don’t think George will need to play more than 24 minutes again in order to hit value at this price. Kawhi coming back maybe cuts into his point production, but even 20 and 10 gets us there.

LaMarcus Aldridge, SAS vs. POR, $6,600 — Again, like DeMar DeRozan at $7,200, I think LMA is just too cheap with the types of games we’ve seen him post. Throw in the revenge narrative vs. his former team the Trail Blazers, plus the fact Portland has been awful this season. I think this is a good spot to play Aldridge in all formats.
