DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (2/26/19): NBA DFS Lineups

After a massive 11 game Monday slate, we have a ridiculous three game Tuesday slate. Only two of the games are appealing NBA games, as the third is Orlando Magic and New York Knicks are playing in the third game. That game could have some strong fantasy options, though.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/26/19. 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 too early. Be sure to check all the NBA starting lineups and player statuses and availability prior to opening tip. Give me a follow on Twitter @BalesSJustin with questions or comments. Good luck everyone.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Kyrie Irving - PG, at TOR ($8,800)

Irving has proven to be fully healthy since the All Star Break, playing 41 minutes in each of his two games since then. He also posted 64.25 and 40.75 DK points in those games. Irving also scored 50+ DK points on a relatively consistent basis prior to the All Star Break, as well. Furthermore, Irving has found elite success against the Toronto Raptors, as he's averaging 57.4 fantasy points in 37.3 minutes per game. He's an elite option in all leagues tonight.

Damyean Dotson - SG/SF, vs ORL ($4,400)

Dotson has seen bigger in three of his last four games, as he's averaging 30.8 minutes per game over that span. He's also averaging 19.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists (30.6 fantasy points) per game in those contests. He has scored 24+ fantasy points in each of those games, as well, while flashing 40+ fantasy point upside. He gets a solid matchup against the Orlando Magic tonight, and Dotson makes an outstanding salary relief option in all leagues tonight.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Jonathan Isaac - SF/PF, at NY ($5,800)

Isaac isn't necessarily the safest option on the slate, but he comes with quite a bit of upside. He has scored 35+ fantasy points in four of his last 10 games. He has also locked into big minutes for the New York Knicks, scoring 32 fantasy points in only 24 minutes earlier this season. Isaac has been locked into 30+ minutes on a nightly basis, and he makes a high upside option in tournaments tonight.

Al Horford - PF/C, at TOR ($6,300)

Horford is another forward that comes with quite a bit of upside. He has played 30 and 37 minutes in his only two games since the All Star Break, scoring 28 and 62.25 fantasy points in those games. He caught fire prior to the All Star Break, though, and he has the ability to contribute in each of the five categories. He gets a plus matchup against the Toronto Raptors, who he's averaging 37.8 fantasy points against in 34.1 minutes per game. Horford is a player that can be considered in all leagues tonight.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, vs OKC ($10,000)

Jokic is surprisingly cheap for his recent production. He has scored 50+ DK points in seven of his last 10 games, including five games with 60+ DK points. He has performed well against the Oklahoma City Thunder this season, averaging 20.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.5 steals (46.4 DK points) in 31.3 minutes per game against them. Jokic has been at his best at home, where he's averaging 1.75 fantasy points per minute, as opposed to 1.45 fantasy points per minute on the road. Jokic isn't going to come cheap, but he can be used in all leagues tonight.
