DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (1/28)

I’ll be honest, I am not a big fan of Monday’s five-game NBA slate. There are two games that feature a double-digit home favorite and each of the other games also have some blowout potential with the remaining three favorites favored by five or more points. There aren’t any “lock” high-priced studs to jam in either, so I find myself building a more balanced lineup. Be sure you are also building in some upside on the small slate, even in cash games.

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.

One Stud

Kevin Durant (SF/PF – GS): $9,400 / Stephen Curry (PG/SG – GS): $9,100 @ IND
Monday is another slate where you can pretty comfortably fit in two of the higher-priced stud options. On Monday’s slate, I’m looking to use both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry for their matchup against the Pacers. The Pacers will be without Victor Oladipo but should still be competitive playing at home. Both Durant and Curry have seen less fantasy production since DeMarcus Cousins returned, but they both still offer two of the highest floors on the slate and always have upside potential.
