DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (1/13) PREMIUM
We are lined up with another fun Monday night slate of NBA DFS action with seven games on tap. The salaries on DraftKings for Monday night seem a little bit depressed across the board which gives us plenty of value at all price points. The point guard position has a bunch of strong mid-priced options to choose from and there are some value big men who should destroy their expected value given their inexpensive salary. It could be another high scoring night in DFS.
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.
LeBron James (PG/SF – LAL): $9,500 vs. CLE
James missed the last game due to illness but is expected to return to the lineup for Monday’s matchup with the Cavaliers. Anthony Davis is questionable to play, and I expect him to sit out again, which leaves James as the primary scoring option as he sees a 5.5% usage increase with Davis off the court. James has a very reasonable salary and should anchor your cash game lineup as long as Davis is out.
