*Not actually cheatcodes
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.
– Only three games on the slate so my strategy is pretty simple tonight: I’m stacking guys from the Denver/Sacramento game and going star heavy with Durant/Westbrook.Game Notes:
– The game in Sacramento has some blowout potential, but I’ve got enough Kings in the lineup where a lopsided game won’t kill the team.
– On Draft Day I went with Evan Turner and Dorrell Wright, both of whom have been playing extremely well with Nick Young out. I would have liked to get Turner in my FanDuel lineup, but due to stiffer roster restrictions, I went with Thadd Young instead.
– My decision to include Kosta Koufos over JaVale McGee was essentially a coin flip. While I prefer Koufos, I’d leave that decision up to your personal preference.
– Last night we were a bit unlucky with Melo getting hurt, but hopefully he was a guy who was in a lot of your opponents’ lineups as well. Enes Kanter had his second-straight impressive outing and it’s worth noting that he did so without even getting in the starting five. Amir Johnson also went 23 and 15 against David Lee aka the Golden Gate.
