DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (11/11) PREMIUM
The big 11-game Saturday night slate feels like a night where there is enough mid-range and cheap value to pay up for two studs with plenty of high-priced superstars to choose from. So, Saturday’s DraftKings lineup advice takes on a slightly different look with “two” studs along with a smattering of Core/Value plays to choose from.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (SF/PF – MIL): $11,200 vs LAL
Antetokounmpo has probably been the most consistent high-priced stud this season with is worst effort still resulting in 43.5 DraftKings points while he usually lives closer to 60 like he did against a tough Spurs’ defense on Friday. He gets a much easier matchup Saturday playing at home against the Lakers who have allowed the second most DK points to opposing SFs this season.
LeBron James (SF/PF – CLE): $10,800 @ DAL
I have less conviction in using James as the second stud option on the night as I would also strongly consider either of the Pelicans’ duo (Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins). However, I’ll give the edge to James who continues to be a one-man show for the Cavaliers’ offense with Kyrie Irving out of town and Isaiah Thomas out with an injury. He has consistently played around 40 minutes a night and while his matchup with the Mavericks doesn’t scream that it is good, my metrics show that they have allowed increased production in points (+2.5%), rebounds (+13.5%) and assists (+9.3%) to opposing SFs.
