Here are a few of my core DraftKings players for tonight’s NBA daily fantasy contests, Tuesday 1/23/16.
D. Lillard – $9,200
Kobe’s farewell tour stops at Portland, and I think Lillard gets up for it. Obviously a superb matchup for Lillard who will always get you 30+ and can go off for 70. The line is 10 as well, so it might stay close enough to keep him in the majority of the 4th.
D. Schroder – $4,900
Schroder has one of the best matchups of the night vs the Suns who are the 29th ranked defense and 30th vs the PG. Although his minutes and scoring is inconsistent, he’ll usually get you 25+ and has gone for 40+ more than a couple times.
K. Middleton – $7,300
A great price for a guy that gets 30-50 fppg every night, and playing vs the high paced, poor defense of the Pelicans.
J. Young – $3,600
3 games of about 30 minutes in a row, and a ton of production. Seems to be aggressive when he’s in and unafraid to shoot. George Hill was out and Monte Ellis got in foul trouble early last game which inflated Young’s minutes, but a great price nonetheless for the budding rookie.
G. Antetokounmpo – $7,400
Below average night last night, I look for him to bounce back huge vs the Pelicans in that high point total game.
K. Porzingis – $7,300
Charlotte somewhat weak vs the PF, and Porzingis is an extremely consistent 30-45 fantasy point scorer. Averages a more than a fp/min.
E. Ilyasova – $5,600
A decently high point total in this one at 206 and Denver allows points. I think he’s a great price as he will get you your 30 and can shoot threes, and sometimes doesn’t mind taking a lot of them.
M. Turner – $4,100
Great value play as he plays at Sacramento in what should be a high scoring game. Kings defense is weak, and Turner has been turning it on getting big minutes and big production the last 3 games.
