Harden is the most expensive player on the slate, but he by far brings the most upside to the table on this short six-game slate. He has not had any massive games against the Warriors in two prior meetings this season, but that can change on any given night. On smaller slates like this, if Harden has one of those huge games, and you do not have him, it becomes VERY difficult to cash. I can understand a fade here since this game will be super high owned, but I am just letting you know that if this game goes as expected, you are going to need some exposure to Harden. These two teams have the best offenses in the league and we can see them put up 260+ combined points in this one. As I said before, this game will be the highest owned of the night, but even that is not enough of a reason for me to avoid using the only player in the league to hit 100+ DraftKings points in a game this season.
