DFS – Fantasy Basketball – NBA DraftKings Initial Lineup – 1/24/19

Hi Everyone!

It’s Wednesday and we have a big 4-game NBA Slate tonight that starts at 8:00 pm.

I’m traveling this morning so I’m not doing much of an article today.

Let’s see who we have going for our initial DraftKings lineup today.

Don't forget to check out who we have going in our NBA FanDuel Lineup also!!!!!

I’m initially targeting the MIN/LAL game as although it has just the 3rd highest Over/Under on the slate, I’m a bit worried about blowout potential in both the GSW/WAS & NOR/OKC games.

We’ll have to keep an eye out for the status of Rondo, however, he did state he didn’t think he would have a minutes restriction if he was able to play tonight and with Lonzo Ball out with an ankle injury, Rondo could be in for a big game. Minnesota has been terrible against the SF/PF positions this season and I think Brandon Ingram & Kyle Kuzma have great value at their current price points.

For Minnesota, we have Wiggins in there for right now as his $5,600 seems a bit too low for me in what is a good match-up.  

The POR/PHO game also has some blowout potential, however, I don’t mind attacking this game a bit in hopes that the Suns can keep it close.

With T.J. Warren & Deandre Ayton out, Devin Booker has some great upside as he should be easily putting up 20+ shots tonight. Kelly Oubre Jr. has been a solid producer since being acquired for the suns and should see some extra run with Warren out. I think you can also go with some value with the Suns if you want to spend up elsewhere as Josh Jackson went off for a 52.0 DraftKings point performance last game and Dragan Bender has posted back-to-back double-doubles with both Holmes & Ayton out. If Holmes is playing tonight, he is also someone to take a look at later.

For Portland, it’s hard not to go with Jusuf Nurkic with how undersized the Suns are right now. Nurkic’s price has gone up a bit, but he has 60+ DraftKings point upside in this match-up.

As we are able to fit in two Centers with the UTIL spot in DraftKings, I did add Jahlil Okafor in our DraftKings lineup as he is coming off back-to-back 40+ DraftKings performances and between his low-price tag and the fact they’ll need his size against OKC, I don’t mind rolling the dice with him again tonight.  

Check back later for updates.

Good Luck!
