If you are like me, you are excited about the freedom you will have tonight and I'm not talking about DFS lineups. Tonight is the Super Bowl and I probably don't have to tell you that, but I had no clue it was Super Bowl weekend until Friday afternoon. Still not feeling well so I'll keep it brief. Look for Kyrie Irving, Tobias Harris, and Kyle Lowry to champion most of the lineups tonight, especially with limited options. If you have been struggling this season DFS-wise, today could be a big day for you. While it will be mainly sharks out there today, make sure you put in one or two lineups since there will be limited players today.

If you won't be watching the game, feel free to "hang out" with me on Twitter and I advise asking the most ridiculous questions you can think of, just tag @HalfCourtJester. I'll probably be playing Blackout on Call of Duty and my girlfriend will be watching Law & Order: SVU. Either way, come fill tonight's NBA-less void with some engaging basketball talk.

For the rest of the article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/3/19. 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.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Dennis Schroder - PG/SG @ BOS ($4,700)

I prefer to play Dennis Schroder in games where he plays against some of the league's better teams. While he has shown to be inconsistent when it comes to his jumpshot, that's only really in fantasy realms. Outside of fantasy, Schroder has been a savior to the Thunder second unit. He IS a consistent source of offense for them and that will continue as long as he is there. His ability to score from outside makes him a constant threat, and although he does not convert all that efficiently, his recent games made it clear you can't just let him shoot. Tonight, both Kyrie Irving and Schroder have plenty og upside.

Louis Williams - PG/SG  @ TOR ($7,000)

With the momentum he picked up from last game, I declare this the start of the "Lou Williams and Tobias Harris Two-Year, All-Star Snub Tour." In honestly, neither player was really "snubbed" but I'll tease the idea for the sake of using it as motivation. I do like playing both here and stacking this game might be your best strategy. It should be competitive and both teams best players will be nearly impossible to defend given each teams talent pool.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Marcus Morris - SF/PF vs. OKC ($5,100)

Marcus Morris continues to be a bright spot in this offense, despite not being the strongest shooter. He offers the perfect spacing that gives everyone else more than enough room to operate, without feeling like they are without a life line. Morris is always waiting in the right position and while he doesn't convert at an incredible rate, his production is totally dependent on just how well he is shooting, not so much the opposing defense. He will score tonight and because he is naturally a tough player, he has upside versus a well-composed defense.

Montrezl Harrell - PF/C @ TOR ($6,900)

Both Pascal Siakam and Montrezl Harrell have plenty of upside versus eachother tonight, but if you are being super cautious about price, there is no real risk in going with Siakam. Personally, I think Harrell get's the better of Siakam on the rebounding end, but Siakam has the length that should allow him to score against the Clippers frontcourt. Harrell has the size advantage and his foot speed does give him a slight edge, but I wouldn't fade either in hopes one has a bad game. Both should produce, but I still give the nod to Harrell given the stats he can rack up in such a short period of time.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Nerlens Noel - C @ BOS ($3,900)

There is no indication that Steven Adams isn't playing tonight, but that doesn't mean Nerlens Noel will be riding the bench all game. He has been rebounding consistently despite his minutes being all over the place, so look for him to have that same type of upside versus Boston, with some extra flavor thrown in since the Celtics are an unusually small, yet defensively-gifted team. Both Adams and Noel have the upside tonight, but this pick is much, much more valuable if Adams does miss time. Plenty of people are going to have to same exact lineup and it's going to cash, just throw in a curveball or two to see if you can help bump yourself up the cash standings.
