Nuggets @ Warriors 229.5

Pelicans @ Cavaliers 214.5

Thunder @ Bucks 212

Magic @ Knicks 209

Suns @ Clippers 209

Hornets @ Bulls 205

Point Guard


Russell Westbrook – He’s the odds-on favorite to win the MVP, he’s destroying DFS, and he needs to be rostered in all cash lineups.

John Wall – A shootout is brewing in Houston in what Vegas is calling the highest total on the board tonight.  Take advantage.

Steph Curry – The Nuggets rank 2nd to last against the point guard position.  Fire him up.


Derek Rose – Porzingis is down with a knee injury.  Carmelo couldn’t finish the game Saturday and is iffy tonight.

Austin Rivers/Raymond Felton – If CP3 can’t roll tonight, it’s a toss-up between these two.  Rivers for cash and Felton for GPP is where we’re headed.

Jerian Grant – The Bulls backcourt is a mess.  Rondo is likely coming off the bench freeing up Grant for a spot start.

Shooting Guard


James Harden – See Russell Westbrook.

Giannis Antetokounmpo – The 6’10” point guard is capable of triple-double number nightly.

Nicolas Batum


Dwayne Wade – With the Bulls backcourt in shambles, Wade will be looked to for leadership.

Devin Booker – He’s had 30 FP in four of the last five games.  Fire him up against a banged-up Clippers backcourt.

Justin Holiday – Porzingis is down and Melo is a GTD.  Fire him up.

Small Forward


Kevin Durant

LeBron James

Jimmy Butler – Like Wade, Butler will be expected to hold the team together as it transitions away from Rondo.

Gordon Hayward – Hayward has been carrying the load for the Jazz with Hill has been on the shelf.  All Jazz players are in play tonight against the Nets.


Otto Porter – Brad Beal is a GTD.  If he sits, Porter gets a huge bump.

Andre Roberson – Roberson has been seeing his minute increase over the last three weeks and the Bucks really struggle agains the SF position.  GPP all the way.

Aaron Gordon

Power Forward


Anthony Davis – His production has slid since moving to the Center position, but he’s still capable of monster fantasy nights regardless of position.

Kevin Love – The Pelicans struggle against the PF position.  Especially when they can kick out and rain three’s like Love.

Draymond Green – The Warriors have the highest total on the board tonight against the Nuggets, a team ranks near the bottom of the barrel against the PF position.

Nicola Jokic – Since returning from injury, Jokic has been putting on a show.  Fire him up in a high scoring affair.

Jabari Parker – Parker has been on fire lately, scoring over 33 FP in each of the last three games.  Fire him up tonight against the Thunder.


Serge Ibaka

Ryan Anderson – Anderson is inconsistent, but the Wizards really struggle against the PF position.  Fire Anderson up.

Derek Favors – All Jazz players are in play tonight against the Nets.



Rudy Gobert – See Derek Favors

DeAndre Jordan – With CP3 potentially sidelined, Jordan’s already high floor raises slightly.


Brook Lopez – The lone consistency, Lopez will be relied on to battle down low with Gobert and Favors to keep it close with the Jazz tonight.

Nicola Vucevic

Marcin Gortat

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.

As discussed in previous Youtube videos, after 7 years, we've decided to take some time off. My plan is to take a couple of months off and transition to making FantasyTeamAdvisors a Season-Long and DFS Fantasy Football website. Hopefully, you understand and we'll be back better than ever!
