DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA FanDuel Initial Lineup - 12/23/18
Update (5:27 PM) - Decided to go with more of a balanced lineup. Will need to keep an eye on Fox to ensure he plays but he looks more probable than a GTD. Image is updated. Good Luck!
Let's take a quick look at today's NBA FanDuel 9-game "Main" Slate that starts at 6:00pm tonight!
I'm going to make this write-up pretty quick as I'll be able to put in more time later today after all the NFL action has started!
There are a lot of solid matchups out there today, but my initial plans is to stack the NO/SAC matchup and try to find value at the other positions. The NO/SAC game has a current O/U of 236.5 and I think this game just has the potential for offensive fireworks. We're paying up for De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield for the Kings and Anthony Davis & Julius Randle for the Pelicans! It's a bunch of salary to spend, but these 4-players alone I think could put up a combined 200+ FanDuel points tonight.
We'll have to keep an eye on the status of Derrick Rose but if he isn't able to go, Tyrus Jones is almost a must play.
Cleveland will most likely be without both Rodney Hood and David Nwaba, which opens up a bunch of value for the other Cavaliers players. I think Alec Burks is one of the best values on the slate and I don't mind taking a chance on Jaron Blossomgame as a "punt" as he is coming off seeing 30 minutes agianst the Raptors on Friday.
I'm a bit worried about the possible blowout in the PHX/BKN matchup at the Suns will be tired after their triple-OT game last night agianst the Wizards, however, I like the upside that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson brings in this matchup.
Check back later for updates!
