DraftKings Lineup 2/9/15

There is a nice slate of games tonight, and no games starting after 9pm ET.  Many of the normal daily fantasy stars are out tonight so that makes tonight a great might for value plays.  Let’s start with the high-dollar stars though.  My most expensive player tonight is Chris Paul at $9,100.  The Clippers haven’t been playing well lately, but CP3 has still been producing monster fantasy numbers.  He is playing angry after getting drilled twice in 4 days on national tv, and he will look to take his anger out on the Mavericks tonight.  He will have to be even more involved offensively than normal because of Blake Griffin’s absence.  Chris Paul could easily be the highest fantasy scorer tonight, especially since Anthony Davis won’t be playing tonight.  My other expensive player tonight is Brandon Knight at $7,400.  Knight has been on fire lately, and he should continue his hot streak tonight against Brooklyn.  Brandon Knight and Chris Paul could combine for 85 or 90 fantasy points tonight.

I have quite a bit of mid-level guys tonight.  Kevin Martin, Tobias Harris, Robert Covington, and Dirk Nowitzki should all be quality plays tonight.  Tobias Harris and Kevin Martin are both cheaper than they should be because of recent injuries.  Both look to be playing at their normal level, and their price will soon rise to reflect that.  Play Martin and Harris for cheap while you still can.  Robert Covington may be the best NBA player you have never heard of.  He has been playing out of his mind lately, and has been one of the few bright spots this year for Philadelphia.  Part of the reason his price is so low is because nobody knows who he is.  My last mid-level guy is Dirk Nowitzki.  I think Dirk is in for a huge night against the Clippers tonight.  The Clips are scuffling and they are without Blake Griffin.  Their bench is depleted and I expect Dirk to take it to them tonight.

I only have one really cheap value play tonight, but it could be one of the biggest steals of the season.  Spencer Hawes at $3,000 is a must-start tonight.  He will get huge minutes with Blake Griffin out, and a very thin Clippers bench.  He won’t have Anthony Davis numbers, but he should easily be worth his $3,000 price tag.  As always DON’T FORGET TO CHECK THE COMMENT BOX FOR ANY LINEUP CHANGES BEFORE THE LINEUPS LOCK!!!

One thought on “DraftKings Lineup 2/9/15

  1. Tobias Harris is OUT! I put Harrison Barnes in his spot and uses the extra money to get Tyreke Evans in the Utility spot instead of Dirk. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis are out so the Pelicans will run everything through Tryreke tonight
