DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (2/12) PREMIUM
We have a smaller six-game slate to kick off our NBA DFS week, but there are still some good options across the board. There were a number of trades last week at the deadline, so we have some new faces on new teams, meaning new rotations we will have to keep an eye on.
D.J. Augustin (ORL): $5,300 @ CHI
Augustin is now the starting point guard for the Magic since Elfrid Payton was traded to the Suns. This means Augustin is seeing a big boost in minutes, and we want to jump on him before his price increases any further. Augustin has 23 or more DraftKings points in three of his last four games and is now up against the Bulls, who are giving up 48 DK points per game to point guards, which is fourth worst in the league. This puts him in a great spot and makes him a great cash game option. He has a 23% usage rate, along with averaging 0.85 fantasy points per minute this season.
Klay Thompson (GS): $6,300 vs. PHO
Thompson has scored 29 or more DraftKings points in five of his last six games and has a fantastic matchup against the Suns who are giving up 46 DK points per game to shooting guards, which is dead last in the league. Thompson has plenty of upside for tournaments, with his ability to hit the three ball, and he is in a great spot with this game set to be high paced. There is no over-under set in this game due to the injury news surrounding Draymond Green, but it should be around 220. Thompson has taken six or more three-point attempts in six of his last 10 games, showing that he is primed for a big game from deep.
