FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (12/7) PREMIUM
Welcome to the Saturday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. The main slate is reduced to just four games, but we still have several circumstances we can take advantage of tonight. Joel Embiid’s absence from the 76ers lineup is the most significant of several injuries that will be impacting teams, while we also have a juicy 241.5 expected point total when the Suns visit the Rockets. I’ll be attacking these situations extensively on tonight’s small slate. With that in mind, let’s dive into some of the better plays at each position tonight.
De’Anthony Melton (MEM): $5,500 at UTA
The Grizzlies’ usual starter, Ja Morant, is due to miss his fourth consecutive game. In the previous three Melton has seen a huge increase in minutes off the bench, nearly 26 per contest, almost double his season average of just over 13. He’s been productive with the additional playing time, averaging 32.6 FanDuel (FD) points over that span, but his salary doesn’t seem to have caught up to his new value yet.
