FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (12/5)
PREMIUM

Giannis has been incredible the past four games

There are 10 games on Wednesday’s main slate. This presents a bevy of choices, including between seven players with salaries of $10k+. You can’t have them all so you’ll need some discount options to balance out expenses. Here are players I’ll be looking to get into my lineups at both ends of the spectrum. Where I do list a top-dollar player, I also discuss some alternatives, in case the price is not right.

Point Guard

John Wall (WAS): $9,400 @ ATL
On Monday, Wall put up a season-high 15 assists, but that number is not an anomaly, as he’s had several point-assist double-doubles over the season. In addition, Wall has scored double-digit points in every game this season except one. If there’s a downside, it’s that he is turnover prone. But the overall result is a player who has had two 50+ FPT games in his last five, and only twice in the 20’s all season. On Wednesday he takes on a struggling Atlanta team.

Collin Sexton (CLE): $4,800 vs. GS
Sexton has achieved double-digit points in 13 straight games, averaging 24 in his last four, including one effort close to 40 FPTS, but also one in the teens. This volatility is often part-and-parcel of a low-cost option, but Sexton has more upside than most at this price, and he retains his starting role for a home against the Warriors.
