NBA FanDuel Lineup Advice: Saturday (2/10) PREMIUM
Welcome to NBA FanDuel Saturday. We’ve got a myriad of trades and injuries to sort through so let’s get to it. As always, this lineup is designed for GPP play.
Patty Mills (SA): $4,300 @ GSW
It’s going to be tough to pass up Patty Mills with both Dejounte Murray and Tony Parker out against the Warriors. Golden State is slightly below average defending PGs with a Defense v. Position (DvP) of nearly 47 points per game. Mills will be a chalk play and may end up being over-owned, but it’s very risky to pass him up at $4,300.
Elfrid Payton (PHO): $7,000 v. DEN
As if the Suns didn’t have enough disappointing lottery picks with Alex Len, Marquess Chriss, and Dragan Bender, they went ahead and snagged Elfrid Payton from the Magic for a second-round pick. Speaking of the Magic, I was informed by a good friend of mine and fellow FanDuel addict that the Magic have now managed to trade Tobias Harris (traded to the Pistons for Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova), Victor Oladipo (traded to the Thunder for Serge Ibaka), and Elfrid Payton for Terrence Ross (traded by the Raptors to the Magic for Serge Ibaka) and a second-round pick. That’s impressively terrible, even for the Magic.
