DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Tuesday (1/9)

DeRozan is a must-play in tonight’s small slate

Despite just a four-game NBA slate on tap for Tuesday, there is surprisingly a lot of solid value options to consider due to injuries. With the position flexibility on DraftKings, Tuesday is a good night to fit in as many PGs as possible using the PG, SG, G, and UTIL slots since that is where most of the value lies. The challenge on the slate will be determining which big men to roster and if you play the only high-priced stud on the slate, Russell Westbrook.

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.

One Stud

Russell Westbrook (PG – OKC): $11,500 vs POR
The biggest roster decision on Tuesday’s slate is whether you should pay up for Russell Westbrook or not. There are certainly enough value options on the slate to include him, unfortunately, most of that value plays the same position at PG. Based on my early lineup construction I will likely include him in my Cash game lineups but may fade him GPPs as I expect he will be very popular as the only high-priced stud. His matchup isn’t great on paper against the Blazers but with Damian Lillard out it improved and really does it matter who Westbrook is playing.
