FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (3/9) PREMIUM
Tonight’s 10-game slate features seven stars with salary’s over $10,000. Some are in terrific matchups (Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant), but there are legitimate concerns with each that will keep them out of my cash game lineups. Rather, I’ll be spending down on some lesser names for lesser costs who have been performing like stars. That, and the value plays on this slate are so minimal that our hands are nearly forced. In fact, every single player in my lineup costs at least $5,400. I don’t believe I’ve ever done that before. Let me show you how it all came together:
Frank Mason (SAC): $3,900 vs ORL
Typically, I list the highest priced player at each position first, but Mason is such a lock that I made an exception. De’Aaron Fox is not expected to play versus the Magic tonight because of a back injury he is dealing with. That means Mason should get around 30 minutes like we saw against the Pelicans Wednesday when he went for 32.2 FanDuel points. With the quality of defense or lack thereof, from the Magic, 10x is a legitimate possibility with 5x being a virtual guarantee.
