FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (1/22) PREMIUM
As with most NBA DFS slates, lineup construction will need to be modified in the last minutes to accommodate for the late-breaking injury news. We know a few inactives upfront such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeAndre Jordan, and JJ Redick but there are still many other situations to monitor including Goran Dragic, Jimmy Butler and the mess in Memphis. So, while I’ll give you my best FanDuel lineup given the current information I have, just know it could get flipped upside-down. Such is life in NBA DFS.
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.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL): $8,300 vs PHO
I expect Eric Bledsoe to be very popular on Monday’s slate. He gets to face his former team, the Suns, who have allowed the most FanDuel points per game to opposing PGs this season. Bledsoe also benefits from a usage bump with Antetokounmpo out and would get an even larger bump if Malcolm Brogdon misses is his second straight game. Bledsoe put up 30 points with six rebounds and seven assists in a previous meeting against the Suns, oddly enough also in a game that Antetokounmpo missed.
