DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (1/5) PREMIUM
After a quiet night in the NBA on Thursday, we have a large 10-game NBA slate over on DraftKings tonight. With so many games on Friday’s slate, we can worry a little bit less about ownership and more on attacking the best match-ups on the board.
As always, identifying great value is going to be imperative in building a winning lineup and affording a few stud players. I am going to identify two of my favorite plays, regardless of price, at each position and then a few value plays that can help round out our lineups.
Damian Lillard (POR): $8,500 vs. ATL
Lillard played well in his return to the lineup on Tuesday night and now has a dream home matchup against the Hawks on Friday. The Hawks are one of the best teams to target at the point guard position, as they have given up the 6th most DraftKings points to point guards and Dennis Schroder is one of the worst defenders in the NBA, ranking 96th out of 97 PGs in defensive real plus minus (DRPM). Lillard has eclipsed 45 DraftKings points in six of his past 10 games and has an elite 29.9% usage rate. As long as he is able to rack up peripheral stats and avoid turnovers, Lillard is an elite play on tonight’s slate.
