FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/7/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice


We have a decent sized six game slate tonight, and in all honesty this is not the greatest grouping of games. It seems that outside of the Trail Blazers - Spurs and Pacers - Clippers, there just isn't that much upside available. You can go in any direction you want as far as lineup building goes so don't feel the need to stack any one game. If you were to stack, go for the Trail Blazers guards and LaMarcus Aldridge. There should be a plenty of value stashed throughout the Raptors - Hawks game, so make sure you target that game for a potential blowout in favor of the Raptors.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 2/7/19. 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. Be sure to check all the NBA starting lineups and player statuses and availability prior to opening tip. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @HalfCourtJester on Twitter.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Rajon Rondo - PG, LAL @ BOS (FD - $6,100)

Not many better options out there at point guard, although his price is a little high. As a player who needs his teammates to convert to increase his upside, I still like Rajon Rondo in one of his many revenge games. The Celtics rank second against opposing point guards, but that's not a second place ranking against guys like Rondo. There is no one that can stop him when he gets going and they just have to hope that the rest of the team isn't hitting and that Rondo is the only productive option.

Kent Bazemore - SG, ATL vs TOR (FD - $4,100)

This game is riddled with a blowout capability, but since Kent Bazemore is returning from injury it's easy to see why his minutes seem more guaranteed than everyone else's. With Bazemore looking to mesh back into the rotation, they will want to give him shots and usage just right off the bat. He will still have limited minutes but last game he showed why that is all he needed. This is one of the riskier picks tonight but also has the potential to be a super-undervalued pick. Not many people will want to take the risk, but I think this game works in his favor in more than one way. With his price so low it's hard to see him underperforming.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Evan Turner - SF, POR vs. SA (FD - $3,800)

If you pick Evan Turner based on his game log or recent performances, you are basically willingly shooting yourself in the foot. Turner is one of those players where you just have to pick him on the right night and hope that is a game where his shot is falling. His minutes and production have been all over the place, but Portland clearly views him as a consistent on court option when it comes to offense. He really does need to be hitting his shot to be exceed his value, but his price is so low that he just needs to play tonight. Since the Spurs will slow down the pace this game, look for Turner to see extra minutes. If you are looking to spend up at the SF position then look for Rudy Gay to put together another strong performance.

Dario Saric - PF, MIN @ ORL (FD - $3,900)

This seems automatic. Even with the Magic ranking third against opposing power forwards, Dario Saric is a slight exception. He can stretch the floor and rebound well against anyone, not to mention he exploded last game. I'm really hoping he can carry that momentum into tonight's game and the rest of the Timberwolves should have no problem producing, leaving the court perfectly spaced out for Saric to hit open shots. With his price so low, you know a ton of DFS players will are drinking the same juice. Just be wary that this pick could go either way, but regardless I like Saric to exceed his projected.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Myles Turner - C, IND vs. LAC (FD - $7,700)

Myles Turner has been on a slight tear recently, and even this season has been a massive improvement since last year. He took a slight dip last season but has responded strong enough to actually warrant that last year's concussion simply threw him off his game. The Clippers are going through a small rebuild and getting new players so expect there to be some type of learning curve for playing alongside new players. Just generally, I like Turner against most teams, but especially a team that is lacking true frontcourt firepower. Yes, Montrezl Harrell will get his, but expect Turner to out-produce and even limit Harrell's overall production tonight.
