Haven’t posted a DFS lineup in awhile. This is what looks appealing tonight.
PG: Zach Lavine, Chicago Bulls, $6,800
Lonzo Ball will most likely be guarding Kris Dunn which should open up things for Lavine. Lavine hasn’t been the stud he was earlier in the season but this should be a solid matchup for him. This game is not calling for a high total, which seems a bit odd for me.
SG: JJ Redick, Philadelphia 76ers, $5,600
JJ has been on fire averaging 32.5 DK points over his last four. A nice matchup with the soft Timberwolves defense giving up the 5th most fantasy points to shooting guards. The focus will most likely be on Jimmy Butler tonight so JJ should see plenty of great matchups.
SF: Kyle Kuzma, Los Angeles, Lakers, $7,300
No Rondo or Lebron has seen a huge useage uptake for Kuzma. Chicago doesn’t have anyone that can matchup with Kuzma, look for him to deliver 6.5X return on his salary.
PF: Bobby Portis, Chicago Bulls, $4,500
This one is a bit of a punt play, but when Portis gets the minutes he produces. At a cost of just $4,500 he is worth the risk for a double-double machine.
C: Steven Adams, Oklahoma City Thunder, $7,000
Potential blowout is always a factor when the Hawks are in play. Adams has had over 30 DK points in 8 of his last 10. With the highest projected team total and potentially John Collins or Alex Len guarding him Adams should have an easy time getting over 30 DK points.
G: Jimmy Butler, Philadelphia 76ers, $7,600
Revenge narrative is always a factor. You have to think Jimmy Butler is going to come out firing against his former squad. Butler has the personality of a player that loves to say I told you so. The Wolves will be without their best defender Robert Covington, Butler should easily hit value.
F: Mason Plumlee, Denver Nuggets, $4,400
This is the definition of a punt play. Plumlee has seen a major regression in minutes since Paul Millsap returned from injury. Still the Warriors seem to have a problem with big men that are strong down low. Jokic would make a lot of sense here but Plumlee is more of a post player. This is a gamble but if he can get at least 20 minutes is a cheap and effective gamble.
UTIL: Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors, $6,300
Warriors need Draymond to play big tonight to win. These are the type of games where he shows up in full force. Taking a risk on a player with high upside. Looking at 40 points from him tonight.
