FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (1/9/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We have a 10-game slate tonight, with fantastic options at each position, so you will be looking to jam some of these studs in your lineups. If you are rolling out multiple lineups tonight, you should be very excited with how many options there are, so look to diversify your player pool.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 1/9/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks.

Make sure you don't set your lineups too early and also be sure to check player statuses and availability prior to opening tip. Give me a follow on Twitter @DFS_Tom and let me know how I did. Good luck!

FanDuel DFS Guards

Spencer Dinwiddie - PG, BKN vs ATL (FD - $6,200)

Dinwiddie isn't very expensive tonight and comes in with a fantastic matchup tonight, which should make him viable in all formats tonight. He is facing off against the Hawks, who are doing this really interesting strategy this season of not playing any defense. The Hawks come in giving up 50 FanDuel points per game to point guards this season, which is dead last in the league. Dinwiddie has posted 21 FD points or more in three of his last five games, a level of production he should be able to reach tonight with his favorable matchup.

Furkan Korkmaz - SG, PHI @ WAS (FD - $3,800)

It was announced on Tuesday that Korkmaz would be starting for Redick tonight, making him a solid value play since he is up against the Wizards, who are giving up 39 FanDuel points per game to shooting guards this season. You shouldn't be expecting massive production from him, but if he is starting, he should be able to produce around 0.77 fantasy points per minute, which is where he lands with Redick out this season.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Harrison Barnes - SF, DAL vs PHO (FD - $5,600)

Barnes is never a super exciting player to roster in NBA DFS, but he is playing 29 minutes or more in 11 of his last 12 games, which is valuable. Minutes equals money for fantasy, which has Barnes averaging 26 FanDuel points this season but has only hit 40 FD points once in his last 12 games. It comes down to this, Barnes has a very solid floor of points for his salary, but he also lacks a true ceiling of points. Safe, but never truly exciting.

Wendell Carter Jr. - PF, CHI @ POR (FD - $5,900)

Carter has been impressive as a rookie but is certainly dealing with some inconsistency, which is why you should be targeting him for tournaments tonight, not for cash games. He comes in with a 20% usage rate along with producing 1.01 fantasy points per minute this season, which should play well against the Trail Blazers who are sixth worst in the league against power forwards, giving up 47 FanDuel points per game. He isn't truly expensive and should be among the lower owned options at power forward tonight, as we have a 10-game slate.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, DET @ LAL (FD - $9,500)

We know that Drummond is a double-double machine and that is 100% the level of production we should be seeing from him tonight. He is facing off against the Lakers tonight who are giving up 59 FanDuel points per game to centers this season which is fifth worst in the league. There are a ton of higher priced centers to pay up for tonight, but Drummond in a late night West Coast game with 50 point upside is where you should be looking.
