We're just two more reasonable slates away from the NBA All-Star Break, so get your NBA DFS in while you can. We get another six games on this Tuesday, and the Spurs on a back-to-back happen to be the last game of the night... oh joy.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/13/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options, to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Eric Bledsoe - PG/SG, vs. ATL ($7,200)

This is a dream matchup for point guards, and Eric Bledsoe has been showing consistent production recently. The injuries to Malcom Brogdon and Matthew Dellevadova have helped secure his minutes, and his usage rate continues to sit well above 20% each night. Vegas has this game staying close enough for four quarters of production (Milwaukee favored by seven), so I'm fine with rolling out Bledsoe in all formats on Tuesday.

Goran Dragic - PG, @ TOR ($6,400)

This is the case of DraftKing's matchup algorithm just simply making a player too cheap for his role. Prior to last game's dud against Giannis and the Bucks, Goran Dragic had gone for 45, 35, and 52 DK points in the last three. Kyle Lowry is indeed a good defender, but Dragic is crafty enough to score against anyone. It's not like he needs a 50 burger here. Anything over 30 is safe for cash games and 40 would give you a huge bump in tournaments. I like this sneaky play in what should be a tight, playoff-preview type game.

Other Guards to Consider: Russell Westbrook/Raymond Felton, Chris Paul, De'Aaron Fox

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

LeBron James - SF/PF, @ OKC ($11,400)

LeBron James is loving his newly-constructed squad, and with Isaiah Thoms out of town, we can gladly welcome back the point guard LeBron show. He dished out 10 dimes in just 28 minutes against Boston while pulling down eight boards and chucking 20 shots. This is a man on a mission, and now he gets Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on TNT in enemy territory. He really wants to show the world that these trades worked, and I expect James to be the highest scoring player on the slate Tuesday whether Westbrook plays or not.

Joffrey Lauvergne - PF/C, @ DEN ($3,300)

I am really hoping we don't get word about Pau Gasol's status in this back-to-back game after his 33-minute performance last night. So far this season, Gasol has sat in a good chunk of these types of games, and in the ones he has played he only played one half. That means Joffery Lauvergne can be safely projected for at least 20 minutes with upside for much more. Even if for some reason Gasol plays his full allotment again (which seems completely unlikely considering his coach), Lauvergne will get his 15 minutes and can still salvage his night at $3.3k. King Joffery is not a stud by any means, but he can rebound the ball and is not afraid to shoot from anywhere on the court. This game in Denver should be a blowout, but at this miniscule price tag I think Lauvergne gets 20+ DraftKings points about 90% of the time.

Other Forwards to Consider: Bam Adebayo, Davis Bertans, Thon Maker

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Karl-Anthony Towns - C, vs. HOU ($9,200)

I'm typically not in the business of touting Karl-Anthony Towns, especially this season with his shot attempts falling drastically. However, this is the ideal environment and price tag for a Big KAT stand. He put up 62 DK points against Houston earlier this season, and while you might look at the game log and say five blocks are unsustainable, we could take away four of those blocks and he'd still be at 6x value. Not to mention, Towns should get a block and rebound boost in this spot since he's asked to cover Clint Capela around the rim all night. Then, on the other end of the floor, KAT should get all of the open looks he wants around the perimeter. The pace is perfect, the matchup is nice, the total is high, and the spread is tight. Everything is aligning for a big night for Towns.

Other DraftKings Centers to Consider: Jonas Valanciunas, Willie Cauley-Stein
