DFS NBA Lineup & Value Plays
Another edition of our DFS NBA Lineup & Value Plays is upon us.
With only five games total today, and one being an early start we are left with a limited pool of talent to choose from. Thankfully, there is talent to choose from as the Knicks play the Lakers, Pacers face the Hawks, Jazz visit the Kings and the Nets host the Bucks.
The Nets, Knicks and Bucks may be bottom dwellers in the Eastern Conference standings, but they offer legitimate fantasy basketball options. The Bucks have a ton of young exciting talent especially, led by Giannis Antetokounmpo.
There were many game-day decisions today, as if often the case on the Sunday schedule so assembly came right down to the wire. My picks have been in the money all week, so let’s compare rosters again.
- My roster
As usual I have a heft amount of change left in my pocket. I always feel it’s more important to get the players I really want versus maxing out just for the sake of getting “better players:. It’s all about the matchup and what a player has to play for, so playoff runs and young guns with a bunch to prove highlight second-half of the season fantasy choices.
Antetokounmpo leads the squad again. He and teammate Khris Middleton will be heavily leaned on this evening with aspirations of 35+ fantasy points at the very least (each).
At PG Darren Collison was a nice value pick. D’Angelo Russell was my first choice but with limited options elsehwere and depth at point guard, the decision had to be made.
Kobe Bryant was on my avoid list. He was questionable heading into the game, so his potentially limited minutes were not an option.
Brandon Bass and Myles Turner were even bigger value picks. Priced at $4000 and $4900 respectively, as long as they can perform slightly above their average output your team shouldn’t suffer.
