Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup
With only four games scheduled tonight, you may think it will be a slow night for daily fantasy basketball lineups. But one game is all you need when it’s a Thunder vs Warriors rematch. Here is my DFS lineup, including some nice value picks. There is still $500 leftover to do as you wish with, replace and upgrade, but we feel this is a solid lineup either way.
Steph Curry is questionable with an ankle injury that held him out of the Golden State game against the Hawks, but is expected to be ready to play tonight. Considering the ankle, and Kevin Durant‘s effort last time out, I’m rolling with Russell Westbrook tonight. The former two starred in the premiere, so this game is Westbrook’s to own. I’m hoping for a monsterous 50-60 fantasy point night.
Let’s take a look at the remainder of the roster.
Norris Cole and Mirza Teletovic are the leading value picks here. Cole scored an outstanding 40.8 fantasy points last night and will look to keep it going versus the Spurs. Teletovic should be a popular selection in daily fantasy basketball at just $4700. He’s nailing them from beyond the arc, so he adds additional fantasy points even if he isn’t a dominant factor all game.
If I wasn’t taking Curry, you bet I was taking one of his teammates. Klay Thompson made the cut with back to back 40+ fantasy point games.
I’m looking for 45 fps from Kawhi Leonard against the Pelicans. And Dirk Nowitzki always seems to have a great game when I don’t take him, so with such a small pool of talent available, I’ll take my chances with the bubbling Maverick offense.
Joe Johnson, Alex Len and Luol Deng round of the lineup, as consistent vets who have high (enough) ceilings.
Good luck to all, and to all a good night of ball!
