DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA DraftKings Lineup - 12/21/18

Update (6:43 PM) - Made some updates! Image is updated. Good Luck!

Hi Everyone!

It's going to be a tough slate as we still have a ton of question marks in the NO/LAL game, which will be one of the best games to target tonight. 

We have Emmanuel Mudiay as he has taken on more of a scoring role as of late for the Knicks and has a great matchup agianst the Hawks who have struggled against opposing PG's all season. 

As of right now, with so many question marks on both teams (AD, LeBron, Randle, Ingram is back, Rondo is back......etc), I 'm only rostering Jrue Holiday as I think no matter who ends up playing in this game, he is pretty safe and has great upside in this matchup. 

Robert Covington looks like he is fully recovered from his recent injury and now that he is seeing 35-40 minutes, I think he can easily hit 5x value at his current price of $5,700. 

Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry are already ruled out for the Raptors, so I like going with Pascal Siakam with the him tonight in a decent matchup agianst the Cavaliers. Siakam put up 38.75 DraftKings points against Indiana earlier this week when Ibaka/Lowry were unavailable. 

Rounding out the team, we're going with Myles Turner of the Pacers as he has the great matchup agianst the Brooklyn Nets. Turner has put up at least 36.5 DraftKings points in 5 of his last 6 games and he should have no problem reaching that total tonight agianst the Nets. 

Reggie Bullock looks back from his recent injury as he has logged an average of 35.7 mpg over his last three games. Bullock has put up an average of 15.3 shots per game in that span and as he is coming off a 33 point performance agianst Minnesota, I like Bullock at this price tonight against Charlotte.

PF's have had their way with the Atlanta Hawks this season and I think as Kevin Knox is going to see 30-35 minutes, I'm comfortable pairing him with Mudiay in this matchup tonight. 

With both Valanciunas & Ibaka out, Monroe will get another start for the Raptors and just because he does have decent offensive upside, he is worth the shot at his current price.   

Good Luck!
