Salary: FD $12,700 / DK: $13,300
$13,300 is one of the highest prices I have ever seen for a player in the last three years I have been playing NBA DFS. Is he worth it? On a three game slate, I think so. His extremely high price may scare some off him on DraftKings, but in reality he brings by far the most upside of any player on this slate. On FanDuel he is an auto-lock for me due to the upside he carries and on short slates, you just jam in the top guy. This game has blowout concern with the Rockets being 11-point favorites at home, but on this short slate, I am just plugging Harden in anyway. The Magic are a decent defensive team because of their slower pace, but this is a spot where I just think we need to pay up for the guy with the most upside on the slate. The blowout risk is what makes him a GPP play, but I personally will have 95% exposure to him on my teams tonight.
