Draftkings Lineup 2/6/15

Unlike last night, there are plenty of options to assemble a solid lineup tonight.  Fridays are almost always great nights for NBA DFS, and tonight is no exception.  Let’s jump right in.  My big star tonight is Nikola Vucevic for $8,100.  Vucevic has a very favorable matchup against the Lakers who are without Jordan Hill.  Vucevic is quietly having a great year, and could easily go for 50 fantasy points tonight.  My other expensive player is Andre Drummond at $7,800.  Drummond has been solid lately, as have most of the other Pistons, since the departure of Josh Smith.  Detroit is playing the Sixers tonight so look for Andre Drummond, and Gregg Monroe for that matter, to go off.

My mid-level players tonight are Jarrett Jack, Giannis Antetokuonmpo, Josh Smith, and Donatas Motiejunas.  I’m going to ride Jarrett Jack while he is hot.  He has been on fire lately, and his Nets are hosting the horrible New York Knicks.  With Derron Williams back, Jack’s numbers will probably start to slip a little but I think he will stay hot tonight.  The Greek Freak is proving to everyone why there was so much excitement about him from the Bucks organization.  He has become one of the most fun young players to watch in the entire NBA.  He has put up 30 points consistently, and he is a steal at just $6,000 tonight.  Donatas Motiejunas has been a stud while Dwight Howard has been out.  Houston is thin down low without Howard so that means Montiejunas has had plenty of minutes.  All of his minutes have made him a quality fantasy option lately.  My last mid-level player is Josh Smith.  I’m going with J Smoove because of his consistence, at least in fantasy, lately.  He has gotten 30 fantasy points more times than not lately even though his actual performance has not been great.  If Draftkings took points away for missed shots he would be a terrible option, but since they don’t he can be beneficial to your team because of the volume of shots he takes.  I am considering putting Khris Middleton in his spot, but as of right now i’m sticking with Josh Smith.

I have two value plays tonight.  My first value play is Marcus Smart at $4,600.  Smart has been rolling since he took over as a starter.  He is getting his shot to prove what he can do, and he has not been disappointing.  The minutes should be there for him the rest of the year since the tanking Celtics are playing for the future.  My other value play of the night is Ed Davis.  Davis should have big minutes tonight since Jordan Hill is out.  Over the last 10 days he is averaging around 27 fantasy points per game, but he had almost 40 in his last time out.  Look for Ed Davis to have a big night tonight.  DON’T FORGET TO CHECK THE COMMENT BOX FOR ANY ROSTER CHANGES BEFORE LINEUPS LOCK AT 7PM EST!!!

One thought on “Draftkings Lineup 2/6/15

  1. I have decided to put Tobias Harris in for Josh Smith, and put Brandon Knight in for Jarrett Jack. Jack’s production is bound to go down eventually because of DWill’s return and i’m afraid it will start tonight.
