FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (2/11)

Feb 11, 2019

Lavine has picked up the pace for fantasy owners lately

It’s the beginning of a new week full of new opportunity and hope! What makes this a great Monday? A plentiful nine-game slate to work from for your NBA DFS needs. Including nine players who are valued at $10k or more. There are plenty of solid matchups to work from and with so many games this evening there will also be plenty of opportunity for variance to separate your lineup from the rest and make sure you finish in the green! Tonight the point guard and small forward positions are absolutely stacked so fitting the right players into your lineup at the elite price points will be pivotal.

That’s where this article comes in, the goal of this article is to highlight the players who seem to have the best chance to take your lineup to the top. Players listed here will be my focus based on matchup, recent play and trending. While you may not be able to fit all the players into your lineup I want to arm you with enough knowledge and evidence as to why these players should be worth consideration. I’ll list two players for each position with the exception of center, which will have one. Keep in mind to stay up-to-date on all the latest news when it comes to injuries or late scratches which plague NBA DFS. Let’s get right to it now and as always good luck!

Point Guard

Chris Paul (HOU): $7,800 vs. DAL
Paul is still kind of working back into form and his current salary is reflective of that. I’m a big proponent of taking a guy of this caliber at this price point. Paul will need 39 FanDuel (FD) points at least to validate his selection into your lineup, which is a feat he’s accomplished now in three straight games as his workload continues to ramp up. Over the past three games, he’s averaged 17 points, five rebounds and eight assists per game leading to 42.1 FD pts per game average over that stretch. Dallas has struggled against opposing point guards as well ranking 24th in the league defending the position giving up an average of 47.5 FD pts/gm to opposing point guards. Paul still ranks second on the Rockets in usage percentage behind only James Harden and is also second by a large margin in assist percentage (37.7). Paul is savvy enough to take advantage of this matchup especially as Dallas works to figure out their new lineup after shipping out Dennis Smith Jr. Look for Paul to continue his recent play and exceed the 40 point FD mark exposing this matchup after having last night off to rest. He should be fully healthy and ready to go this evening.
