Happy New Year 3 Jack readers. As the calendar flips to 2016, the NBA has 5 games on the schedule. Check out DraftKings NBA lineup below. We’ll be looking to start the DFS year off right.
Last night had a dose of feast or famine from the value players. If you plugged in T.J. Warren, you were rewarded handsomely with over 50 FPP on a $4000 salary. Three of our targeted value players failed to hit the 20 point mark. Drummond and Green provided the heavy lifting with 105 points combined. Anything at all out of our punts and we easily clear the 260 point cash line. Oh well, more motivation to provide some fresh research for tonight.
NBA DraftKings 1/1/16 Lineup
|PG||Ish Smith||Phi @ LAL||6500||Averaging 32 min and no less than 14 shots over his last 3. Consecutive 40 FPP performances. Plus, now he gets to play the Lakers.|
|SG||DeMar DeRozan||Orl @ Wsh||8000||One of the most consistent game logs we can find. Last 7: no less than 14 shots and 8 trips to the line.|
|SF||Evan Fournier||Orl @ Wsh||5800||Fresh off 40 min last game, Frenchy has 30+ FPP in 5 of his last 6. He averages 1.5 pts higher on the road and the Wizards are 28th defending the three-pointer.|
|PF||Julius Randle||Phi @ LAL||5400||I know, I know. Randle is driving us to drink. Get this, 4.5 pts & 2 rebounds; that's how much better he is playing at home. Averaging a double/double at Staples Center.|
|C||Hassan Whiteside||Dal @ Mia||7100||Want more home/away splits? Whiteside scores 8 more FPP at home on average. Last 5 home games, minimum of 34 FPP.|
|G||John Wall||Orl @ Wsh||9700||Wall is in a groove lately. Scoring over his season avg FPP each of the last 5 games.|
|F||Derrick Williams||NY @ Chi||3300||Purely a punt here, but Williams has been playing well with the 2nd unit lately. Value in 5 of last 6.|
|UTIL||Ramon Sessions||Orl @ Wsh||4100||Sessions has benefited from Beal's absence. Averaging 24 FPP over the last 5 and that works here.|
Goodluck in your NBA DFS January 1, 2016 50/50 or tournaments!
