DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA FanDuel Lineup - 12/21/18
Update (6:43 PM) - Made some updates! Image is updated. Good Luck!
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.
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.
I currently have Derrick Rose in the lineup as Jeff Teague is out against. His price has gone up a bit, but the matchup is still great, and he can easily go off for 40+ FanDuel points 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.
Josh Okogie is our "low-scoring" punt play as with Teague out, Okogie saw 31 minutes on Wednesday. He might not reach 20 FanDuel points but I'm happy to take a chance on him at his current price if he is seeing 30+ minutes.
Rudy Gay has been outstanding over the last two weeks and I like his matchup agianst Minnesota.
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 $6,200.
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 41.4 FanDuel points against Indiana earlier this week when Ibaka/Lowry were unavailable.
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.
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 36.7 FanDuel points in 5 of his last 6 games and he should have no problem reaching that total tonight agianst the Nets.
