DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (12/1) PREMIUM
We have an NBA six-pack for the Saturday night DFS slate on DraftKings. I’ll be honest, I’m not too excited about this slate. There a plenty of high-priced studs to consider but it seems like all of them are overpriced for their current situations. Meanwhile, the mid-priced group also has some question marks around their matchups and availability. So, despite the small slate lineups could be wildly different, even in cash games unless news during the day drives ownership to specific situations and players.
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.
John Wall (PG – WAS): $8,900 vs. BKN
I eluded to it in the intro, I’m not in love with any of the high-priced studs on the slate. James Harden is on the second game of a back-to-back and has Chris Paul back. Kevin Durant and the Warriors get Steph Curry back on Saturday which hurts both of their value at their price points and minutes expectation. The Pistons guys, Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond could be options, but I’m leaning toward John Wall since I like a lot of the cheaper big man options while guard seems thin. Wall has only played 25 and 26 minutes respectively in the last two blowout losses but should get a full complement of minutes on Saturday at home against the Nets.
