DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (2/12/18): NBA DFS Lineups

The Association has six games scheduled to start off the week. Plenty of high-scoring matchups, but also plenty of games to stay away from, notably Knicks/Sixers, Spurs/Jazz and Suns/Warriors.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/12/18. 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 read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too. Give me a follow on Twitter @Den_Clausen and let me know how I did.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Zach LaVine - PG/SG, vs. ORL ($6,900)

LaVine finally cracked the 30 minute mark against the Clippers a few games ago and has been playing like an animal ever since, averaging 41.8 fantasy points over the past three games. The team held him out against Washington on Saturday, but he should be well rested and ready to go against the Magic on Monday night.

Austin Rivers - PG/SG, @ BKN ($5,400)

Since returning from a heel injury that forced him to miss 18 games, Rivers was thrust back into the lineup, playing at least 32 minutes per contest. The Nets have been having issues defending the one spot all season, allowing 26.6 points per outing. Rivers is reasonably priced, and has the potential to easily surpass the five times value mark. His value will increase if Milos Teodosic, who has missed the past two games with a foot ailment, isn't able to suit up once again.

Other DraftKings DFS Guards to Consider: Lou Williams ($7,600), Jrue Holiday ($7,500), Evan Fournier ($6,100), Rajon Rondo ($5,700), D'Angelo Russell ($5,600), Jerian Grant ($5,200), Shelvin Mack ($4,800)


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Tobias Harris - SF/PF, @ BKN ($6,600)

Harris has settled in well to his new home and is averaging 18 points, six boards and nearly two steals since arriving in Los Angeles. Though the Nets have been a little better defending the four spot since DeMarre Carroll took over for the injured Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, they are still giving up 29.6 points and a 49 percent field goal percentage to opposing players at that position this season, which is good for worst in the league.

Danilo Gallinari - SF/PF, @ BKN ($6,300)

Gallinari is fresh off of a 22 point performance against the Sixers on Saturday and has benefited from the departure of Blake Griffin. With the game against Brooklyn expected to be high-scoring and fast-paced, Gallinari could have a similar performance on Monday night, especially if he can get his deep shot to fall.

Other DraftKings DFS Forwards to Consider: Blake Griffin ($9,500), Nikola Mirotic ($7,000), Mario Hezonja ($5,600), Jonathon Simmons ($5,100), Justin Holiday ($5,000), Reggie Bullock ($4,700), Joe Harris ($4,400)


DraftKings DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, vs. NOP ($10,100)

As of this writing, Drummond is laying the hammer down on Atlanta, scoring 25 points and 11 boards halfway into the fourth. He was priced a tad higher on Sunday, but let's not argue with a price drop, especially when it comes to a guy who could easily grab anywhere from 15-20 rebounds on any given night.

Other DraftKings Centers to Consider: DeAndre Jordan ($7,200)
