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 Shooting Guards Should You Target on DraftKings?

Jimmy Butler, MIA vs. NOP, $7,600 — The Heat are dealing with a ton of injuries, including Justise Winslow, Derrick Jones Jr., James Johnson and a suspension to Dion Waiters. Tyler Herro, Goran Dragic and Kelly Olynyk have dealt with injuries recently as well. Butler was already getting big usage and this is a great matchup vs. the Pelicans. He’s one of my top overall plays and stands out for GPPs.

DeMar DeRozan, SAS vs. POR, $7,200 — The Spurs will be on the second of a back-to-back set, but the Trail Blazers have been a doormat this season. There should be little to no defense in this contest and I think DeRozan’s price is perfect for GPPs. He’s starting to turn in more stat lines like we saw last season with at least four assists in seven straight games. Plus, it helps his ownership is normally under 10%.
