FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/22) PREMIUM
We have a huge Wednesday night in the NBA, with 12 games on the board and the much-anticipated debut of Zion Williamson. Do not worry, we will talk about Zion, but let’s highlight some of the other potential spots to take advantage of early on in the day. Let’s go!
Kemba Walker (PG – BOS): $6,800 vs. Grizzlies
Memphis is one of the most exploitable defenses in the fantasy world, and that’s because their fast pace creates so many extra scoring opportunities for their opponents to exploit. They have added nine fantasy points to opponent’s averages, so the Celtics are in a really nice spot tonight. Pair that with the fact that Kemba sits below $7,000, and you have yourself a monstrous upside play here. While he has been struggling from deep lately, making just 11 of his last 32 three-point attempts, now is the time to jump on the Celtics point guard. He should be in for a great game at this price tonight.
Buddy Hield (SG – SAC): $5,300 at Pistons
We have to be very price sensitive in NBA DFS, and Hield stands out as a really under-priced player on this slate. This is one of the lowest prices I have ever seen on him, and I just am not seeing the production dip to justify it. He has not been shooting well from deep lately, going just 12/41 from downtown over his last four games. That alone has brought his price down, but there is no reason to think that his poor shooting will continue. The guy shot 17 three-pointers last game, and are you really going to fade a guy that has that kind of upside at $5,300? I would not.
