DraftKings NBA 10/27/15 Fantasy Lineup
With a limited slate of games you need to really find the best players and lock in some solid points. Then you can find some value plays to help have success in the 50/50 contests. Check back again because there are many injuries that are not exactly fully disclosed yet. Both NBA Finals teams (Cavs and Warriors) are in action on opening night.
|PG||Mo Williams||Cle @Chi||4900||With Kyrie out, Mo will be scoring like it is old school in Cleveland. At 4900 he is a good value in this game.|
|SG||Jimmy Butler||Cle@ Chi||7600||With Rose being banged up, Butler has proven he can handle the scoring load. Look for him to go for at least 25 in this one.|
|SF||Marcus Morris||Det @Atl||4500||A solid double - double would be a huge bonus on opening night.|
|PF||Anthony Davis||NO @GS||10400||Could be the best overal fantasy basketball player in the league. Expect him to make a good impression on the defending champs.|
|C||Timofey Mozgov||Cle @Chi||4600||With T.T. just signing, Mozgov should be getting extra minutes for a while.|
|G||Jeff Teague||Det@ Atl||7000||Teague is one of the more underrated guards in the league. Steady and consistent.|
|F||Taj Gibson||Cle@ Chi||3900||Last spot to fill and had little to play with. Gibson could be good if he gets the minutes.|
|UTIL||Draymond Green||NO@ GS||6900||GS spreads the ball around so much, but Green normally gets enough minutes never to have a total dud.|
Over the course of the first few weeks you might be able to find some sleepers. However, you will also find some bad plays and then you will be able to develop some patterns in picking your winners for each contest.
Best of luck to everyone.
