FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (1/4) PREMIUM
Welcome to the Saturday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. This week we have a good-sized nine-game main slate to navigate. It’s a slate that can be attacked in a variety of ways with only two players demanding five-digit salaries. Rumors have been swirling about the first blockbuster trade of the season with the Hawks reportedly close to acquiring Andre Drummond from Detroit, something that would have major implications tonight if it came to fruition. With all that in mind, let’s dive into tonight’s recommended players.
Luka Doncic (DAL): $10,900 vs. CHA
This is a case where the most expensive player at the position is probably worth paying up for. The Mavericks will be without Kristaps Porzingis for the third straight game; in the previous two Doncic averaged 37.1 minutes, 33.0 points, and 11.5 rebounds while seeing a 35.6% usage rate. He faces the Hornets tonight, who give up the second-most assists to point guards on the season. That sets up favorably for Doncic, who’s averaging the third-most assists in the NBA at 8.9 per game.
