DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/22/19): NBA DFS Lineups


After somewhat of an odd split slate yesterday, we're back to a small four game Tuesday slate. While there are only four games, they are all solid fantasy matchups, meaning we'll have plenty of options to choose from tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 1/22/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups to early and check player statuses prior to opening tip. Give me a follow on Twitter @BalesSJustin with questions or comments. Good luck everyone.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, at OKC ($8,100)

There's little to no reason Lillard should be this cheap on only a four game slate. Over the last 10 days, he's averaging 27.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 6.5 assists (45.6 fantasy points) in 34.5 minutes per game over the last 10 days. He has scored 40+ fantasy points in each of his last six games. Lillard struggled a bit in his only matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder this season, but he was still able to produce 37.5 fantasy points in that game. He can safely be used in all leagues.

Kelly Oubre Jr. - SG/SF, vs MIN ($5,600)

Oubre has found his groove with the Phoenix Suns, and the return of Devin Booker hasn't derailed him. He's averaging 20.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.2 steals (36.3 fantasy points) in 28.3 minutes per game over the last 10 days. Oubre has scored 30+ fantasy points in six of his last seven games, and he's averaging a healthy 35.6 fantasy points per game over that span. Oubre posted 33 fantasy points in 29 minutes in his last matchup against Minnesota, and we could see similar production tonight. He's a solid option for his current price tag.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kawhi Leonard - SF/PF, vs SAC ($9,300)

Leonard is another elite option, who comes with a surprisingly low price tag. He has only played three games over the last 10 days, but he's averaging 31.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.7 steals (55.5 fantasy points) in 36.0 minutes per game over that span. He has also scored between 50 and 74 fantasy points in four of his last five games, while averaging 56.9 fantasy points per game over that span. Leonard gets an elite matchup against the Sacramento Kings, who love pushing the pace and have struggled defensively. He makes one of the best options on the slate tonight.

Richaun Holmes - PF/C, vs MIN ($4,100)

Holmes is an interesting option tonight. He has struggled over his last two games, but was an extremely consistent option prior to that. Before those two games, Holmes had scored 20+ fantasy points in six of his last seven games. He's also averaging 26.6 fantasy points per game over that span. He's questionable tonight, so keep an eye on his status, but he'll make a great salary relief option if he's starting. With that being said, Holmes does come with quite a bit of risk, even for a low price tag.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

DeAndre Jordan - C, vs LAC ($6,400)

Jordan gets a matchup against his former team, and he has dominated them this season. In two matchups against the Los Angeles Clippers, Jordan is averaging 13.5 points, 22.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.0 steal (51.1 fantasy points) in 33.1 minutes per game. Los Angeles has struggled against centers this season, specifically in terms of rebounding, and that is Jordan's strength. He makes an elite option for a surprisingly low price tag.
