DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA DraftKings Lineup - Main Slate - 2/25/19
Update (6:28 PM) - Hi Everyone! Made my updates for tonight! Image is updated. Good Luck!
We didn’t get a chance to do a lineup yesterday as I will never give lineups out unless I’m able to make the necessary updates prior to the slate tip-off time.
We’ve had a decent run at the end of last week as although Saturday’s lineups didn’t end up cashing, we had solid cashes on both Thursday & Friday.
Let’s get back on the winning track today and take a look at our NBA DraftKings lineup tonight for the 11-game “Main” slate that starts at 7:00pm.
As I’ve been doing more lately, I’m just posting the images of my initial lineup as we generally will be making changes as the day goes on.
When putting my lineup together early this morning, I’m going off the basis that I don’t believe either James Harden or Giannis Antetokounmpo will be suiting up tonight. Harden missed Saturday’s game at Golden State so you know he had to be hurting not to suit up for that match-up and as the Rockets have a much easier match-up tonight against the Hawks, I’m expecting that Harden rests again to make sure he is fully recovered. Antetokounmpo is currently listed as Doubtful and as they are playing the Bulls, it would seem like a good game to give the Greek Freak some extra rest.
On this assumption, I’ve gotten some decent exposure to both the Rockets (Chris Paul & PJ Tucker) & Bucks (Khris Middleton & Nikola Mirotic).
Memphis is going to continue to be thin in the frontcourt and I don’t mind rostering both Jonas Valanciunas & Joakim Noah in their solid match-up against the Lakers. Valanciunas has been impressive since coming to the Grizzlies and in his first game back from the All-Star Break, he put up a monster 45.25 DraftKings point performance against Cleveland on Saturday. Noah is still worth a look even with Valanciunas is back as he was also impressive against the Cavs on Saturday, putting up a 36.25 DraftKings point performance in 24 minutes. I think Noah will continue to see around 25 minutes a game in the depleted Grizzlies front-court and still has a bunch of value at his current price.
With Joel Embiid still out, we’ll want to target some 76ers tonight in their solid match-up against the Pelicans who like to play at a fast pace. As of right now, I’m rostering both Ben Simmons & Tobias Harris.
Have a great Monday!
