DFS - Fantasy Basketball - NBA FanDuel 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 FanDuel 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).
I’m paying up for Stephen Curry as you know the Warriors are going to want to bounce back strong after losing to the Rockets on Saturday and you have to expect Curry to put up a big game back in hometown of Charlotte tonight.
Caris LeVert looks like he is going to be seeing about 25-30 minutes a game going forward and he is still too cheap for his talent and upside. LeVert also gets a nice match-up against the Spurs defense that will be on the 2nd half of a back-to-back after getting torched by the Knicks last night.
Kenrich Williams is getting all the playing time he can handle and I don’t mind going with him tonight against a 76ers team that will once again be missing Embiid. Williams has seen no less than 30 minutes of action over his last 10 games and easily has 35+ FanDuel point upside with his ability to stuff a stat sheet.
With Embiid out, we’re going to continue to roll with Tobias Harris of the 76ers as he is a pretty safe bet to get us at least 5-times value in his match-up against the Pelicans.
Jonas Valanciunas is back for the Grizzlies and put up a nice game against the Cavaliers on Saturday, however, we should still look at Joakim Noah as he is still affordable and put up a nice 38.4 FanDuel point performance even with Valanciunas back in the lineup. Memphis is really thin in the front-court right now as I think Noah will continue to see around 25 minutes a game, I think he still has a bunch of value at this price in a great matchup against the Lakers tonight.
Have a great Monday!
