FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (12/1) PREMIUM
It’s Saturday and there are six games on tonight’s slate over on FanDuel. Overall, there are some great spots to target from a fantasy perspective along with a few games that could turn into blowouts, so projecting game flow will be important on tonight’s slate. Here are a few plays at each position that I will be targeting on tonight’s slate.
Kyrie Irving (BOS): $9,000 at MIN
Irving has been on a tear recently, averaging 44.6 fantasy points over the past five games. The Celtics are coming off a blowout victory against the Cavaliers on Friday night and Irving was only needed for 27 minutes in that game. So, despite the back to back, Irving should receive a full complement of minutes in a road matchup against the Timberwolves tonight. In terms of his individual matchup, Irving will square off against Jeff Teague, who has a -0.50 DRPM on the season. He should be able to dominate this matchup.
Cory Joseph (IND): $4,400 at SAC
With Victor Oladipo out for an extended period of time, the Pacers will continue to lean heavily on the ancillary pieces of their team. Joseph has been locked into a 25-30 minute per night role and he has put up six or more assists in four of the past five games. He is coming off a 27.2 fantasy point game against the Lakers and gets a phenomenal matchup against the Kings, who rank 27th in fantasy allowed to point guards this season. At a value price tag, Corey Joseph will be a strong play on tonight’s slate based on his minutes volume off the bench.
