DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (3/9)

Mar 9, 2018

Nikola will see a major increase in usage rate tonight

It’s Friday night and we have ten game slate over on DraftKings tonight. There are several injuries that are going to drastically alter the slate tonight, as players like Anthony Davis, Otto Porter, and Brandon Ingram will all be out tonight. Due to this, we need to take advantage of several players that see positive boosts with these players off the floor. A majority of the players in today’s advice article are directly impacted by these injuries and offer a great way to get exposure to these hurting teams.

With this in mind, I have focused on identifying my two favorite plays at each position that can give us an edge in tournaments on tonight’s slate.

Jrue Holiday (NOP): $8,500 vs. WAS

With Anthony Davis out of the lineup for the Pelicans tonight, there is only one rule. Friends do not let friends fade Jrue Holiday. His price tag is sitting at $8,500, but this situation is way too good to pass up – even on a ten game slate. If we take Davis off the floor, Holiday has a 40.4% usage rate and averages 1.83 FD points per minute – albeit in 20.3 minutes of action. But still, 40.4%! On top of that, Holiday’s form has been great over the past three games, averaging 49.2 DK points – this all came with Davis in the lineup. One more time  – do not fade Holiday here.
