DFS – Fantasy Basketball – NBA DraftKings Initial Lineups – 12/26/18
UPDATE (6:14 PM) - Made some updates! Going to take a chance and fade Anthony Davis tonight as although I'm sure he'll still put up a big night, I just really like the value we can get at the PF postion tonight. Image is updated below! Good Luck!
We have a 10-game NBA slate going on today and let’s take a look at our initial NBA DraftKings Lineup that starts at 7:00pm tonight.
I just did a quite writeup this morning as I’ll be on the road this afternoon. I’ll be back in plenty of team to make any additional changes based on the news that comes out throughout the day.
I love the Sacramento/LA Clippers matchup tonight and as of right now, I have De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, and Danilo Gallinari in my lineup.
Fox has been outstanding as of late, putting up at least 40.0 DraftKings points in each of his last three games and while Hield is averaging 46.3 DraftKings points over his last three games. Sacramento has the 2nd highest implied total on the slate (behind the Clippers) and as both Fox & Hield should get around 35 minutes of action tonight, they could combined for 90-100 DraftKings points tonight.
Danilo Gallinari has looked solid as of late, posting an average of 42.75 DraftKings points over his last three games. Gallinari should have no trouble putting up points agianst the Kings tonight.
James Johnson looks fully healthy for the Heat and as he has seen at least 25 minutes over his last two games, his price is just too affordable on DraftKings not to get him in your lineups tonight.
At the Center position, I’m going with some value in Cody Zeller who has that great matchup agianst the Brooklyn Nets tonight. Zeller has gone off for a few big games this season (48.25 DK performance vs. NY) and if he was going to have another big night, it would be agianst the Nets.
Justice Winslow went off for a monster 45.5 DraftKings point performance agianst Orlando last Sunday and as he has already been confirmed as the starting PG going forward for the Heat while Dragic is out, he has great value tonight against a Raptors team that looks like they will be without Kyle Lowry.
I’m all over the Pacers tonight as the match-ups for Thaddeus Young, and Myles Turner against the Atlanta Hawks tonight. Power Forwards & Centers have dominated Atlanta this season and as John Collins looks questionable again, I think the Young/Turner duo could go off for a big night.
