DFS NBA Lineup
Here we have a special edition of a DFS NBA Lineup. An 8 pm edition, meaning just two games to choose your players from. The Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks, and at 8:30 pm the Detroit Pistons at Dallas Mavericks.
I only have two players from the Pistons-Mavs game, and I should probably have more but this two game format doesn’t leave many options in terms of mixing and matching salaries.
There were certain players I targeted and others that just made it because they were the best options for the available cap space.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was my first target. The Bucks star has been on an absolute tear of late, piling up stats in every category. He can put up between 30 and 65 fantasy points on any given night, so even at $9600 it’s worth taking the big man. He makes it fun to follow your daily fantasy roster.
Goran Dragic was a target as well, at $6800 you could do worse. I ended up stacking him and Dwyane Wade together as Khris Middleton would’ve given me just too many Bucks.
Luol Deng was a must have at that price. He is a great value pick again, capable of putting up 35+ fantasy points.
David Lee and Caldwell-Pope are my only two participants from the other game tonight. Dirk Nowitzki is a solid option, but I don’t think a monstrous game is in store for the veteran. Lee is a tremendous value at just $5000, I would have considered him even with a full slate of games to select from.
Caldwell-Pope is capable of having the type of games that win you DFS contests, but you just never know with him. Sometimes he puts up 11 fp, sometimes 25. This is my make or break pick.
Hassan Whiteside is the reward for taking some discounts. The Heat center should log his normal 30+ minutes (illness) and 30+ fantasy points for owners.
