FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (2/8) PREMIUM
Welcome to the Saturday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. Now that the dust is almost settled from the hectic trade deadline we get a manageable eight-game main slate tonight. We already know of some impactful injuries opening up value tonight, and more could be announced throughout the day as the league nears the All-Star break. Let’s dive into some suggested plays at each position.
Elfrid Payton (NY): $7,000 at DET
Payton has been on a tear lately, averaging 50.3 FD points over his last three games. That might not be sustainable, but if you go back a bit further he’s still averaged 39.7 FD points over his last nine games, in large part due to his consistent time on the court. He’s seen over 32 minutes and logged 9.7 assists per game over that stretch. He can easily pay off his salary again tonight in Detroit.
Others to consider:
Malcolm Brogdon (IND): $6,700 vs. NO
In his five games since returning from a concussion, Brogdon has averaged 34.7 FD points per game. He’s underpriced tonight when he takes on the Pelicans, who’ve given up the fourth-most FD points to opposing point guards on average over the season.
