It feels like ages since my last Daily Fantasy NBA: Picks and Lineups post. In a way it has been. With the All-star break and last week it gave me time to focus on Baseball.

Speaking of Baseball be sure to continue reading SCFE for endless and valuable Baseball content leading up to your drafts.

Each week I will be listing players at each position I am targetting and likely using in many lineups.

I will also be sharing my actual lineup(s), perhaps not all of them, but at least one for each major site. So far this season I have been using the same lineups in both cash games and tournaments.

If you are new to the game have fun, don’t go overboard, and hopefully we will win some moolah together this season.


Daily Fantasy NBA: Picks and Lineups For 2-26-16

Remember a Starting DFS Lineup on Fanduel must be built using $50,000 and consists of 2-Point Guards, 2- Shooting Guards, 2- Small Forward, 2-Power Forwards, and 1-Center

Scoring: 3 point shot= 3 pts; 2 point shot= 2 pts; Free Throws= 1 pt; Rebounds= 1.2 pts; Assists= 1.5 pts; Blocks= 2 pts; Steals= 2 pts; Turnovers= -1 pt

Remember a Starting DFS Lineup on DraftKings must be built using $50,000 and consists of 1-Point Guard, 1- Shooting Guards, 1- Small Forward, 1-Power Forwards, 1-Center, 1- Guard, 1- Forward and 1- Utility

Scoring: Point= 1 point; 3 point= +0.5 point; Rebound= 1.25 points; Assist= 1.5 points; Steal= 2 points; Block= 2 points; Turnover= -0.5 points; Double-Double= 1.5 points (1 time per player); Triple-Double= 3 points (1 time per player)


Point Guard

John Wall, Washington Wizards @ Philadelphia 76ers ($9,700 on FanDuel and $9,200 on DraftKings )

Wall may not have looked sharp last night, but he still managed to do what he does best and that is fill the stat sheet. If his off nights look like that, his on point nights make him a great play each and every night. Great matchup tonight should help Wall get back.

(Averaging 41.7 FanDuel PPG and 45.7 DraftKings PPG)

Deron Williams, Dallas Mavericks vs Denver Nuggets ($5,900 on FanDuel and $6,000 on DraftKings )

Williams has been hot as of late and if his dislocated finger is in fact good enough to go he makes a great value play tonight. If you are risk averse I would avoid him on FanDuel for sure, and if you are able to late swap on Draft Kings give him a whirl. Remember to keep tabs on the starting lineups!

(Averaging 26.1 FanDuel PPG and 28.2 DraftKings PPG)


Shooting Guard

Monta Ellis, Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets ($6,300 on FanDuel and $6,000 on DraftKings)

Ellis has come back from the All-Star break with new legs under him and has found his jumper. Having only one night of 20 points in his last four games. The other three have seen Ellis put up 33 or more Fantasy Points per game. Nice value for sure tonight.

(Averaging 27 FanDuel PPG and 29 DraftKings PPG)

DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors vs Cleveland Cavaliers ($8,100 on FanDuel and $7,500 on DraftKings)

DeRozan has become a top Shooting Guard option every night. His matchup may not be fantastic tonight but it doesn’t matter as he has been one of the focal points of the Raptors offense. As long as you can afford DeMar you should play him.

(Averaging 35.2  FanDuel PPG and 36.9 DraftKings PPG)


Small Forward

Rudy Gay, Sacramento Kings vs Los Angeles Clippers ($7,100 on FanDuel and $6,500 on DraftKings)

Gay has been a stat sheet filling stud as of late, and thankfully his popularity and production have been overlooked since the All Star break. That makes him a reasonable play with some consistent production on most nights. Gay also has a plus matchup tonight versus the Clippers. Gay will cost you significantly more on FanDuel tonight however.

(Averaging 30.8 FanDuel PPG and 32.1 DraftKings PPG)

Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks vs Orlando Magic ($9,000 on FanDuel and $8,300 on DraftKings)

Much like Gay above, Melo will hurt the pocketbook a little more tonight on FanDuel. He is coming off a sub-par, at least for him performance on Wednesday, but it was against the tough Pacers defense. Tonight he faces the Magic, and I am thinking he will get back that 40 plus point night tonight.

(Averaging 37.6 FanDuel PPG and 39.6 DraftKings PPG)


Power Forward

Paul Millsap, Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls ($7,800 on FanDuel and $7,800 on DraftKings )

The most expensive option again tonight. He may be coming off a weaker performance on Monday versus Golden State but tonight he has a favorable matchup, and should be well rested. Three double-doubles in his last four make him a great target at any cost.

(Averaging 36.9 FanDuel PPG and 39.5 DraftKings PPG)

Kristaps Porzingis, New York Knicks vs Orlando Magic ($6,300 on FanDuel and $ on DraftKings)

Porzingis has had a roller coaster season as a rookie. Tonight however he should be productive barring foul trouble of course. He is a risk, and his price reflects that but if you can squeeze Milsap in Porzingis is a good affordable option with plenty of upside.

(Averaging 28.4  FanDuel PPG and 30.6 Draft Kings PPG)



Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls ($7,800 on FanDuel and $7,100 on DraftKings)

Horford was an absolute monster on Monday versus the Warriors, and likely the reason teammate Millsap wasn’t as productive. He will not likely be repeating that performance tonight, but should certainly come close to his season averages tonight.

(Averaging 32.1 FanDuel PPG and 33.8 DraftKings PPG)


The Lineup(s):

With the trend of late scratches, injury updates and late lineup locks I have decided to try and share the lineups later in the day and closer to tip-off.Keep an eye out on Twitter for my lineups for tonight’s slate @fantsychillpony
