FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (2/4) PREMIUM
Welcome to another Monday of DFS in the NBA. Football is now officially over, so the NBA takes center stage while baseball still gets ramped up. We have a decent sized six-game slate to work with this evening, and the question of whether or not to fade James Harden (the slate’s highest-priced player) lingers. Along with Harden, there are only two other players that reach the $10,000 level (Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic). This means there will be some opportunity to fit in a good mix of top-tier players tonight.
There are a few matchups worth targeting, Atlanta at Washington appears with the highest implied total of the slate at 233, with Houston at Phoenix coming in a close second at 230. Keep in mind these numbers are as of this morning. A third matchup that could be worth a look is San Antonio at Sacramento, which carries an implied total of 227. There are definitely plenty of players who could put up big totals.
A little about this article: The goal is to highlight the players who have the best chance of helping you finish in the green, so it is not necessarily meant as a lineup-building article. Players listed are ones I’ll be considering for all my lineups, and I’ll work to fit in as many as I can. There will be statistical evidence to back these players that will include matchups, recent play/trending, etc. There will be two players listed as top options, with the exception of the center position, which will have one. As always, keep up with the latest injury news and late scratches all the way up to tip-off. With NBA DFS, things can change just minutes before games start. Good luck!
