DFS - NBA - FanDuel - NBA Lineup - Main Slate - 8/26/20
Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 at 4:00 PM
The first round of the NBA playoffs continues today, and we have a great 3-game NBA slate that starts at 4:00pm today!
We are going to be going with a GPP lineup and let us look at our FanDuel lineup!
With our lineups today, we are going to be paying up for both James Harden & Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Harden & Antetokounmpo combined for over 130 FanDuel points on Monday and as I expect both these games to be competitive, I think the game plan for our GPP lineup is to go with both today as I see 70+ outings by both of them today.
In the ORL/MIL game, outside of Antetokounmpo, I am going to get some value with D.J. Augustin of the Orlando Magic and Brook Lopez of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Augustin is a great GPP play as he has 30-40 FanDuel point upside and I think he bounces back from a subpar Game 4.
Lopez has been seeing about 30 minutes per game and if he has his three-pointer going, he always brings 40+ FanDuel point upside to any game and at $5,500, he is one of my favorite plays on the slate.
I’m going to be stacking up on the Houston Rockets with Danuel House, Robert Covington, & Jeff Green.
House has been outstanding this series, averaging over 30+ FanDuel points in his last three games and as his price as stayed under $5000, I think he brings some of the best value on the slate.
PF is the weakest position on the slate and between the fact that Anthony Davis’s price has gone up and there is some real blowout risk in the POR/LAL game, I think the safest play is to roster both Robert Covington & Jeff Green.
Staying in the OKC/HOU, I think Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is solid GPP play today. Gilgeous-Alexander will be seeing 40+ minutes and has posted at least 40.4 FanDuel points over his last three games. With ownership probably down with most people rostering Harden, McCollum, and an affordable Middleton, I think Gilgeous-Alexander is a great GPP play today.
I am not in love with the POR/LAL game outside some of the value plays for the Trail Blazers. For Portland, I am going with Anfernee Simons who I think has some nice upside at the minimum price of $3,500 with Damian Lillard unavailable.
