LeBron James – $11,900
First off, its LeBron. That is really the main reason to even play him in the first place. His dominance is unmatched, he is playing at an MVP level, and the only real reason that he may not be the guy is that there is a small chance of a blowout.
However, with the Bulls playing better with Nikola Mirotic in the lineup, expect the Bulls to keep this competitive. Feel confident with King James in the lineup in DraftKings NBA.
Jayson Tatum – $5,800
Tatum dislocated a finger on his hand last night, but should be in tonight’s starting lineup without any restrictions. The Knicks have been terrible against SFs over the last 5 games, allowing over 100 DraftKings NBA points per game. Tatum gets plenty of open shots from Kyrie Irving & is shooting over 50% from three this year.
Ben Simmons – $9,500
Simmons has shown himself to be a triple threat for DraftKings NBA players so far this year. Simmons has 8 of last 10 games over 38 DK points, with 3 games over 50 DK. Even though the Raptors guard the SF position well, in his previous meeting, he put up an impressive 42 DraftKings points. With the SF position being a bit weak with consistent star power tonight, if LeBron isn’t your guy, Simmons is a guy to definitely get into your lineups.
Justin Holiday – $5,600
Holiday plays a combo SG/SF position, but for this, I like him at the SF area. He has been playing lights out with Kris Dunn in the backcourt & the Cavs are absolutely terrible at guarding wing players, allowing over 100 DraftKings NBA points to the SF position over the last five games.
Holiday has five straight games over 20 DraftKings points, and has kept a consistent level of play with Mirotic back. At $5,6K, he should be solid play against a weaker than usual Cavs defense.
