Update (6:23 PM) - Hi Everyone! We had to really switch up the lineup today with all the news the broke this afternoon. We're stacking OKC while still getting Mitchell & Curry in the lineup! Image is updated. Good Luck!
We couldn’t keep our winning streak alive last night as our 278-point performance last night fell short of cashing in either our 50/50’s & GPP’s. I spend all day going back and forth between LeBron & Antetokounmpo and should have stuck with my original thoughts of just going with LeBron as the Greek Freak disappointed with just a 33.4-point performance in a 141-140 Milwaukee victory over Sacramento. LeBron led the way for our team last night with 62.2 points while we did get solid contributions from Elfrid Payton (34.7 points), Bam Adebayo (34.0 points), and Joakim Noah (31.3 points).
Let’s continue racking up wins as we take a look at our NBA FanDuel lineup tonight for the 6-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.
As of this morning, it’s clear that I’m going to attempt to target the OKC/PHI game the most. Embiid has been ruled out which helps open up more value for Simmons & Butler. Philadelphia has been solid against opposing PG’s all season, including against Westbrook who was limited to just 41 FanDuel points in their first match-up of the season so I’m currently avoiding him. I’m playing basically every other relevant OKC player as we currently have Paul George, Jerami Grant, and Steven Adams in the lineup.
We currently have Raul Neto & Bam Adebayo in the lineup which should be solid value plays if Rubio & Whiteside are ruled out for tonight. We’ll have to keep a close eye on these injuries situations.
I don’t mind some Cleveland plays tonight in Jordan Clarkson & Cedi Osman who both have solid value and put up a combined 71.9 FanDuel points in their last game against Portland on Monday.
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 Thursday!
