DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Friday (2/8) PREMIUM
The NBA Trade Deadline was active with a bunch of deals going down. Now we are left to sort out the impact on affected teams and to try to figure out when the newly acquired players will suit up with their new squads. For the most part, I’m going to assume that anyone traded over the last couple of days will not play on Friday night’s eight-game slate until told otherwise. It is a great-looking slate on the NBA hardwood with a ton value potential and six games with a Vegas total over 220 points. It should be another high-scoring DFS night!
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.
Anthony Davis (PF/C – NO): $11,200 vs. MIN
Anthony Davis was not dealt at the deadline on Thursday and is expected to play on Friday against the Timberwolves. He reportedly could sit out some games over the rest of the season on back-to-backs and might get his minutes reduced somewhat when he does play. All of that said, I expect him to come out with a vengeance on Friday night. Davis has averaged 29.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in two previous matchups with the Wolves, and we all know that he has a lot more upside than that.
