Fanduel & DraftKings NBA DFS Lineup Picks

General Slate Info

  • # of Games tonight: 12
  • Lineup Lock: 7:00pm EST

Juke’s Quick Take

Tonight, we have a massive 12 game slate and should see some super high scores well into the 380+ range. The biggest news tonight is Demarcus Cousins is OUT so be sure to get plenty of Sacramento Kings exposure. Other stacks I like are the Clippers and Wizards.

My favorite game targets are:

  • BOS vs SAC
  • WAS vs BKN
  • CLE vs IND
  • LAL vs DET
  • LAC vs NYN

My Top 5 Picks of the Night

PG – Michael Carter Williams

When Jimmy Butler has sat out the last 2 road games, MCW has put up b2b 40+ FDP nights. Dwyade is questionable too, which means he might carry an even heavier responsiblity tonight. His price is super cheap, and even if this game is a blowout, he could play at least 30 minutes. I think Rondo is in play too, but I’m going with the younger player here.

SG  – Tim Hardaway JR

This game has the highest implied total on the night so I’m going with TMJ across the board. His last matchup was a tough one against Memphis, but he should have the green light to shoot a lot tonight. Denver plays at a fast pace, which suits his game perfectly. With Jokic and Faried clogging up the paint, I expect Hardaway JR to launch from deep range a lot.

SF – Gordon Hayward

He’s coming off b2b 30 point games and has reached at least 40 FDP in 3 straight games. I really love him on FD, especially since you must play two SFs. He’s a nice pivot from Carmelo Anthony who has a nice matchup, but hasn’t been playing 100%.

PF – Kevin Love

He’s taken over the main role in this offense and went off last against the Wizards. He put up 47 FDP in the last meeting against the Pacers, but gets an even better matchup against the younger, inexperienced Lavoy Allen. As long as he is healthy, he can get red hot from 3 and put up a big score.

C – Kosta Koufos

Demarcus Cousins is OUT so Koufos will take a bigger role in the offense tonight. He has major upside without Cousins in the lineup stealing all the usage. He’s a nice cash game play, but has some tournament upside as well. If you plan to stack the Kings, then Koufos is a must play.
