FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/8/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Yesterday was a bit of a crazy trade deadline, as we saw some major move, along with a few minor moves. It's unknown what players will be playing tonight, and that's something we'll have to monitor throughout the day. Make sure that news that you're following, as that's arguably the most important aspect of this slate tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 2/8/19. 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 @BalesSJustin on Twitter.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Tomas Satoransky - PG, vs CLE ($6,800)

Satoransky recently saw a dip in minutes, but he has still found ways to produce. Over the last 10 days, he's averaging 11.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 7.7 assists in 30.1 minutes per game. He quietly comes with triple double potential, and that could be on fill display if Bobby Portis isn't able to suit up tonight. Regardless, the Cleveland Cavaliers have struggled against point guards this season, and Satoransky should be locked into 30+ minutes tonight.

Buddy Hield - SG, vs MIA ($6,500)

It'll be interesting to see what Sacramento does with Harrison Barnes in the lineup, but I don't expect Hield to lose minutes to him. Hield has caught fire once again recently, averaging 22.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 32.0 minutes per game over the last 10 days. The Miami Heat have struggled against shooting guards this season, and Hield dominated them in their only matchup this season. He's playing bigger minutes at home this season, and he can be considered in all leagues tonight.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Justise Winslow - SF, at SAC ($5,800)

Justise Winslow has been struggling a bit recently, but it hasn't been for a lack of minutes. He's averaging 33.4 minutes per game over the last 10 days, while also averaging 10.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game over that span. He gets an elite matchup against the Sacramento Kings, who will be pushing the pace in this game. Winslow is a versatile option, who will benefit from that uptick in pace. He makes a high upside tournament option on this slate.

Lauri Markkanen - PF, at BKN ($8,100)

The Chicago Bulls recently traded Bobby Portis and released Robin Lopez, leaving Markkanen to soak up as many minutes in the frontcourt as possible. He is averaging a healthy 23.0 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 34.3 minutes per game over the last 10 days. Markkanen will see time at power forward and center tonight, and the Brooklyn Nets are a team that has struggled against bigs throughout the season. He comes with a hefty price tag, but makes a solid option in all leagues in this matchup.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Cristiano Felicio - C, at BKN ($3,500)

As mentioned above, the Chicago Bulls will be with only a few bigs tonight. When Markkanen is off the court (or playing power forward), Felicio will have to be on the court. He played 19 minutes in his last game, and he gets an elite matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. Felicio is a bit of a risky option, but at only $3.5K, he can work as the dropped score. He should necessarily be considered in cash games, but he makes a solid tournament option.

NOTE: The Bulls have opted not to buy out Robin Lopez. He can be used instead of Felicio in this situation.
