DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (11/8) PREMIUM
We have a short five-game slate on tap for tonight, so that means fewer options at each position. Even with the lack of options, there are three games with totals of 213 points or higher, so there should be plenty of offense to go around. It may be early in the season, but a few injuries are popping up, so be sure to verify your players are confirmed and in the lineup tonight.
Goran Dragic (MIA): $6,800 @ PHO
Anytime the Suns are on the slate, you generally want to target them, since they are weak on defense, and they play at a high pace. This is a great combination for DFS since the opposing team will see extra looks and be able to put up more points. Really, it’s one of the best spots to targets players, and if their price isn’t adjusted, you can load up on stars. Dragic has a team-high 25.6% usage rate and is averaging 0.94 fantasy points per minute. Great production out of the Dragon, and as I mentioned, he is up against the Suns who are giving up 54 fantasy points per game to point guards, which is worst in the league. It’s a prime spot for him, and since we have a smaller slate, he is viable in all formats. He has 29 or more DraftKings points in nine of his 10 games this season, so he has great consistency, which is great for cash games, and the favorable matchup gives upside for tournaments.
