Hello, and good day, I hope everyone had a chance to read my first post and give it a try on a cheap contest just for the hell of it. The Lineup I posted yesturday did not finish in the money, but that one was literally the only dud I had. I should have mentioned that I give free lineups on Twitter all the time, and last night I cashed out in 7 contests between DraftKings and FanDuel. Throughout the day I tinker with a new lineup here and there in a Quarter Contest. I will make sure to leave my Twitter handle at the end of each post, check out my feed for the day and see which lineup you like the closer it gets to tip-off.
With all that being said, here is a full lineup for DraftKings for Tonight.
PG and SG, Tim Frazier $4,100 and Tyus Jones $4,300.
Defense will be optional in this game my friends. John Wall is out, and Teague is listed at a GTD with an achilles, so even if he is playing, he won’t be 100%. Tim Frazier has stepped up nicely when John Wall is out of the lineup. Tonight he will be facing either Jones or a hobbled Teague. Same thing can be said for picking Jones, he won’t be facing Wall. I think both will be passing first, each racking up a few assists early to their much more talented starters. Both will settle into the game and they will pick their spots and get you 10+ points.
SF. Chris Middleton, $6,600
This is the one of the best matchups of the night. Small Forward isn’t Sacramento’s strongest position. Garrette Temple is the starter and the rookie Justin Jackson coming off the bench. Middleton plays 37 minutes a night, Temple only plays 25. The kings played yesturday, I’m sure there will be some element of fatigue that will set in when they are chasing Middleton all game.
Slightly undervalued, I would scoop him up.
PF. T.J. Warren, $7,300
For what I saved with Middleton, I invested in Warren. I think He should be under $7,000, but I like the match up so much he was the first player I drafted. One of the things I like about DraftKings is some players have 2 listed positions. I drafted T.J. in the PF slot, but he will be the Suns starting SF tonight.
The Suns aren’t a very good team. They are young and have some good pieces but they won’t be contending any time soon…and the Bulls are even worse. I would take the over on this game. I don’t think there is going to be a lot of defense being played, and if it does tighten up, T.J. is going up against Quincy Pondexter. I am going to take that match up every single time. Warren is shooting 50% from the field, taking 15 shots a game. I hope he gets the hot hand in the game and goes off on his weaker defender, if he is feeling it, I can see him attempting 20 or more.
C. John Henson, $4,700
The Bucks have been a slight disappointment to start the year, at 9-9 they find themselves out of a playoff spot in the East, they are currently 10th. It’s still early, but a few of the surprise teams in the East, Detroit and Indiana, look like they aren’t going anywhere without a fight. The Bucks need to win games like this one. The Kings are 6-14, and are on the 2nd night of a back to back. Henson has stepped up this year at the C and PF position, splitting the Center minutes with Thon Maker. Sacramento’s been playing Koufos and Labissiere at Center this season. 10 points and 6 boards would be a good night from Henson, add is a block or two and a couple steals, and Henson can quietly put up a nice game.
G. Bradley Beal, $7,900
Going to the another offensive weapon in the Washington/Minnesota game. Bradley Beal has been the Wizards most consistent player, leading the team in Points per game and Minutes played. Wall has missed a few games already this year, tonight is another night where Frazier will be in the backcourt along side Beal. 24.2 points per game, and he is present on defense too, he can easily force one or two turnovers. It is going to be a good battle between him and Butler tonight, but I am banking on Beal taking the Wizards offense under his wing tonight.
F. Rodney Hood, $5,700
Donovan Mitchell, rookie from Louisville, has played his way into starting minutes. I think that is the reason Hood is so under priced tonight. Hood still leads the team in Points and minutes played at just under 29 minutes a game. The Nuggets backcourt is a work in progress, but if Mitchell can chew up a lot of the minutes with Gary Harris, Hood can check into he game matched up against Malik Beasley. It’s rare having a teams Minutes leader coming off the bench, but Utah has some how made it work with Hood.
Utility. Karl-Anthony Towns, $9,100
I am seeing a big night for KAT against Gortat. Towns is leading Minnesota in Points, Rebounds and Minutes played. Gortat isn’t a world class defender, and Towns is going pound him in the post all night, I don’t think Gortat will be able to slow him down at all. A double-doulble is implied with Towns, but this could be a 30 point night. KAT can easily get you 10+ points from blocks and steals on a good night.
