Welcome to the Saturday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. Once again I’ll be focusing on the main slate, which features seven matchups tonight. It includes eight players priced at $10,000 or more, and you’re going to want several of these high-priced stars in your lineup. That means it’ll be vital to dig deep for value. This kind of slate lends itself to a studs and scrubs approach to lineup construction, so most of the players I mention will be near either the top or the bottom of the salary range.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL): $7,900 @ IND
Bledsoe got off to a slow start to the season as he was battling a rib injury from the preseason, but he’s been putting up huge numbers lately, averaging over 44 FanDuel (FD) points per game over his last three contests. He scored a season-high 31 points Thursday in the first game without All-Star teammate Khris Middleton, who’s out several weeks with a leg injury. The Bucks run at the highest pace in the NBA, averaging 107.1 possessions per game, so he should continue to see increased scoring tonight against the Pacers, who are playing in the second game of a back-to-back set.
