This is going to be a post for all you daily fantasy basketball junkies. Daily hoops can be extremely exhausting due to the massive day-to-day swings in player usage and match ups so this will serve as a great place to start when constructing your lineup.
These lineups are specific to DraftStreet, Draft Day, and FanDuel, thus it’s important to note that the scoring and position requirements at these sites are slightly different. One player might offer more value at one site, but not another.
I’ve used our extremely useful apps (for DraftStreet go here, Draft Day here, and FanDuel here) as well as some personal strategy to create a lineup for each site. I’ll be putting up two lineups each day on a rotating basis (DS/DD on Monday, DD/FD on Tuesday, FD/DS on Wednesday, and so on). I encourage you to utilize the apps I linked to above as they are some of the most valuable tools available in the daily fantasy community.
Finally, you should not just blindly follow these lineups. Very often guys are ruled out as it gets closer to tip-off and player usage becomes clearer. There are tons of places to check for pregame updates, but I’ve found Rotoworld and Twitter searches work best for me.

– FanDuel and DraftDay are two sites that are notorious for less volatile player salaries and John Wall is the perfect example. He has now tallied 50+ fantasy points in three-straight games, but is still priced below Damien Lillard and Jrue Holiday. Wall is eventually going to cool off, but you simply can’t afford not to play him tonight as the Wiz get a plus matchup against the Suns.
– The Pacers have struggled of late (I watched every minute of the game against the Lakers and it wasn’t pretty), but George Hill has been one of the lone bright spots especially from a fantasy perspective. He’s an efficient scorer certainly good enough to take advantage of a below-average Sixers defense.
– Kevin Garnett draws the very bad Bobcats frontcourt. As long as he’s not a late scratch, KG is a must play. The same goes for Paul Pierce. Seriously, the Bobcats are extremely bad. I mean Amir Johnson just grabbed 21 rebounds against them.
– Dion Waiters has been up and down since taking over primary ball-handling duties for the injured Kyrie Irving, but he’s going to continue to get consistent minutes and opportunities.
– Nene has quietly been one of the better plays this week, putting up 25 fantasy points in three of his last four games. He’s also got the second-highest value ratio according to the RotoViz app.
– Marc Gasol has been an absolute stud since the Rudy Gay trade. Some of the things he’s doing don’t necessarily show up on the stat sheet (which doesn’t help you in the fantasy game), but I love the matchup against the Jazz. Al Jefferson’s sieve-like defense should provide Gasol with at least 30 fantasy points.
