DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA DraftKings Lineup - Main Slate - 3/5/19

Update (6:50 PM) - Hi Everyone! I don't think we're going to know about Paul George before tip-off and as I don't want to go with Dennis Schroder if PG13 plays, I'm switching him out for Darren Collison who I like in his match-up against the Bulls. Image is updated! Good Luck!

Update (6:38 PM) - Hi Everyone! Just made my adjustments. As bad as the Celtics have been as of late, they generally play the Warriors tough and I think there is a solid opportunity to get Irving & Tatum with low ownership tonight. Image is updated below! Good Luck!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday!

We couldn’t make it two straight last night with our DraftKings lineup as our 258.5-point performance fell well short of both our 50/50’s and GPP’s. We got disappointing performances from Alex Len (9.5 points) & Eric Bledsoe (29.25 points). Dwight Powell came through with a solid 38.5-point performance, however, was highly owned, and outside of Leron who had a 49.5-point performance, didn’t have anyone else get higher than 35.5 points.

Let’s get back on track as we look at our NBA DraftKings lineup tonight for the 6-game “Main” slate that starts at 7:00pm.

Don’t forget to check out our initial NBA FanDuel lineup for tonight!!!

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.

As of right now, there is a lot to like in the OKC/MIN match-up as this has the makings of a very high-scoring game. Westbrook has been disappointing as of late, however, I think he bounces back with a big game in this one. On the Timberwolves side, I think we have some solid value in Andrew Wiggins & Taj Gibson.

We’re going to keep a close eye on the status of Mike Conley as if he isn’t able to go, I’m not going to hesitate and roster both Avery Bradley & Delon Wright of the Grizzlies. In their previous game against the Thunder in which Conley was out, Bradley & Wright combined for over 90 FanDuel points.

Darren Collison & Myles Turner were a bit too expensive on FD for my liking, however, I love their price-points on DK in their great match-up against the Bulls.  

We’ll have to make sure Kawhi Leonard will be back tonight, however, as I think he’ll be a go against Harden and the Rockets, I’ve currently put Leonard in my lineup.

As always, I’ll be back taking a long look later in the day as the slate gets closer and I’ll post any adjustments by 6:30pm. If there are any really last-minute changes (which always happens basically every NBA slate…haha), I’ll post the image directly to my Twitter account (@BrettCU05).

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
