DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/29/19): NBA DFS Lineups

We only had a five game slate to start the week last night, but we have a surprising seven game slate tonight. The NBA's schedule is extremely odd in the near future, but that helps us tonight, as seven games is a great slate for a Tuesday night.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 1/29/19. 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

Tomas Satoransky - PG/SG, at CLE ($6,000)

Satoransky is a relatively cheap source of elite upside. He isn't seen as a dominant player, but he comes with quiet triple double potential. He's averaging 15.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 8.5 assists, and 1.8 steals (37.2 fantasy points) in 37.2 minutes per game over the last 10 days. Satoransky has also scored 46.75 (2x) and 54.5 fantasy points in three of his last seven contests. He gets a great matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight, and Satoransky makes a solid tournament option for his current price tag.

Shabazz Napier - PG/SG, vs CHI ($4,900)

Napier has stepped up in the Brooklyn Nets rotation with Spencer Dinwiddie injured. He has played 54 minutes in his last two games, totaling 38 points, four rebounds, seven assists, and three steals in those games. Napier gets a great matchup against the Chicago Bulls, who rank as a below average defense against guards this season. Napier comes with significantly more upside than he has flashed in his most recent games, and he's also safe enough to be considered in cash games. He can be used in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kelly Oubre Jr. - SG/SF, at SA ($5,700)

Oubre has caught fire for the Phoenix Suns recently, averaging 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 1.0 steal (32.1 fantasy points) in 30.2 minutes per game over the last 10 days. He's locked into big minutes with T.J. Warren injured, as well. Oubre's floor is sitting around 25 fantasy points, while his ceiling is north of 50 fantasy points. He comes with a surprisingly low price tag on this slate, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.

Kenneth Faried - PF/C, vs NO ($6,300)

Faried played somewhat of limited minutes when he first joined the Houston Rockets, but he has worked his way into big minutes recently. Over the last two games, he has played 36 and 38 minutes. In those games, he has totaled 36.5 and 44 fantasy points. He's a double double threat, who can contribute in other categories, as well. Faried gets a solid matchup against a fast paced New Orleans Pelicans team, and he's an outstanding option in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Richaun Holmes - PF/C, at SA ($4,700)

Joel Embiid makes a lot of sense here, but Holmes quietly makes a great option. Deandre Ayton is doubtful tonight, and Holmes could be locked into minutes in the high-20s again tonight. He played that in his last game, totaling 37.5 fantasy points in 27 minutes. He's also averaging 1.14 fantasy points per minute on the season. Holmes is a high upside option, but he can also be considered in cash games if Ayton is ruled out once again tonight.
