DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (12/5) PREMIUM
Wednesday night features 10, count ’em, 10 NBA games on the slate! That’s a lot of basketball, and as such, there are a bunch of quality options available to plug into your DraftKings lineups. There are some great matchups to keep in mind, most notably Clippers/Grizzlies, 76ers/Raptors, and Hornets/Timberwolves.
A good DFS lineup should have a solid mix of mid-priced players with a steady floor as well as some expensive high-scoring studs and cheap upside plays. Here are ten players to consider when setting your lineups today.
Stephen Curry (PG/SG – GSW): $9,700 @ CLE
In his first action in over three weeks on Saturday, Curry finished with 27 points. He followed that up with 30 points in Monday’s win over the Hawks showing that he’s not rusty at all. He’s clearly the lynchpin of this team, and his excellent three-point shooting makes him a threat to detonate on any given night. With two games back under his belt and facing one of the NBA’s most giving defenses, Curry could easily have a blowup performance at the Q when the Warriors travel to Cleveland to face the Cavs.
Andre Drummond (C – DET): $8,800 @ MIL
The big man’s price is still near the top, but it’s fallen significantly from $9,600 just a week ago. He had a bad game against the Thunder on Monday night, but so did the entire Piston’s team, totaling only 83 points in a blowout 27-point loss. As a result, Drummond played his fewest minutes in a month (23), 10 below his season average. Drummond is one of the best rebounding bigs in the game, and his league-leading 15.9 boards per game gives him a high floor even when he has a bad night offensively. He’ll be in for a lot of work tonight as the Pistons try to slow down Giannis and the Bucks in Milwaukee, and this looks like a prime bounce-back game for Drummond. His $8,800 price tag is a great deal for a player of his caliber.
