DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (12/2) PREMIUM
Monday’s night’s six-game slate on the NBA hardwood is shaping up as a good night to go with a “Starts and Scars” approach to lineup construction. There is the potential for numerous near minimum-priced players to roster who should see a big spike in their minutes and production, assuming the typical starter is ruled out. So, with that in mind, you will be getting two stud recommendations for the price of one and all the value you can handle for Monday’s DraftKings NBA lineup advice.
Note that some of the stats referenced in this article are my custom defense versus position (DvP) calculations that combines data from the season and last five games along with blending similar positions production allowed together.
Joel Embiid (C – PHI): $10,300 vs. UTH
Since his zero-point effort, Embiid has been ballin’ over his last three games. He’s put up 30.7 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per night. While his matchup on Monday night isn’t, as he’s ideal going against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz, he averaged 25.0 points and 15.5 rebounds against them in two meetings last season. He should get big minutes in a tight game, which is more than I can say for another high-priced stud Giannis Antetokounmpo.
