DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (12/2) PREMIUM
The primary question you need to ask yourself for Saturday night’s five-game NBA DFS slate is, how many Nuggets is too many Nuggets to put in one lineup? For me, the answer is “six.” Six is too many. Five, however, is just right. With Nikola Jokic out and Paul Millsap still out, there should be plenty of minutes and fantasy production to go around in a favorable matchup with the Lakers. That should take care of the value options, but who will be the “one stud” of the night?
Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom DvP calculations that combine both season and last five games data along with blending similar positions production allowed together.
DeMarcus Cousins (C – NO): $10,400 @ POR
I was debating who the “one stud” of the night would be until I saw Anthony Davis go down with a groin injury in the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game. This automatically pushed Cousins to the top of the list. Cousins has seen a 3.4% increase in his Usage Rate with Davis off the court this season. Davis has only missed one game this season and in that game Cousins put up 83.8 DraftKings points. Granted, that also coincided with a revenge spot against the Kings, but you get the idea.
