FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (1/15) PREMIUM
Happy Wednesday, premium members! We have a ten-game NBA slate to parse through today. As of right now, there are not any game-breaking injury situations, so this should be a slate with more spread out ownership. Here are some of the plays that stand out the most on FanDuel!
Russell Westbrook (PG – HOU): $9,200 vs. Trail Blazers
It is tough to play Harden at $11,700 when Westbrook is healthy, which is not saying that it is not a good idea to take a shot, but I think the optimal route would be to stay away in cash games. The Rockets are the top team in terms of projected points scored and fantasy points tonight, so there is reason to want some exposure. Westbrook took a game off for rest last night and should be a full go tonight against the Blazers who have added nine fantasy points to their opponent’s averages this year. Westy has been shooting a ton lately, putting up 20+ shot attempts in ten straight games (with two 30+ attempt games mixed in there). I like the price for Westbrook, and he provides a very strong floor in this nice matchup.
Zach LaVine (SG – CHI): $8,300 vs. Wizards
This is the best matchup on the board, as LaVine is in great form lately and takes on a Wizards team that has been getting torched all year long. On average, guards return 5.8x on their salary when facing the Wizards. He has shot the ball more than 20 times in seven of his last eight games. This is a high price to pay, but the floor is so high and the ceiling is there as well with this great matchup. LaVine is a great guy to build around tonight, especially in cash games.
