knicks showdown

DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Tuesday (March 2, 2021) night’s NBA game between the New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs

Welcome or welcome back, I hope you’re all having a fantastic day or night. I’m back at it with more NBA DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. Tonight the 18-17 Knicks head to San Antonio to take on the 17-12 Spurs at 8:30PM ET airing on NBA League Pass and the MSG Network. Check out the latest line and my picks below.

Latest line has the Knicks -1.5 & the Over/Under is 215.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Knicks and the over.

New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs DraftKings DFS Showdown Tournament Captain Pick

Derrick Rose, Knicks PG/SG (DK $7,400)

Rose has played over 32 mins in each of the last two games with Elfrid Payton out, and he’s averaging 35 DK FPPG over his last four. Payton is questionable as of this writing and it’s a good matchup for Rose. The Spurs are near last in the NBA in fantasy points allowed to opposing guards.

Late update- Derrick Rose has been ruled out tonight due to COVID protocols. I’ll be taking a shot with Immanuel Quickley at captain instead.

For anyone new, this is basically my strategy for most large showdown tournaments. Taking a player who isn’t one of the top options at captain and hope they have a big game. It leaves enough DK $ to stack the rest of your team. Obviously it’s risky, but you won’t end up tying tons of other players if you win or place high in a big tourney.

DraftKings Showdown Tourney Utility/Value Picks

Jacob Poeltl, Spurs C ($7,800)

Poeltl has played over 35 minutes in three of his last four games and he’s averaging 34 DK FPPG over his last five.

Patty Mills, Spurs PG/SG ($5,200)

Mills has played over 30 mins in 2 straight. His stats haven’t changed much at all with more minutes, but maybe that changes here and he has a big game.

Frank Ntilikina, Knicks SG ($1,000)

If Payton is out again, Frank should see a decent amount of minutes. He’s scored over 14 DK FPTS in three out of his last five games. Worth a look at the minimum price.

Poll Time!
