After last night’s 14-game fantasy basketball bonanza, the NBA finishes up February with seven games on the slate tonight. Even with only half as many games as last night, there are still some great opportunities to take advantage of for fantasy basketball daily league players. As you get started with your lineups, check out my DraftKings Daily Picks on the following slides to see some of the matches I think will pay off tonight.

A dozen of the 14 teams in action tonight are on the second half of a back-to-back, which could result in some blowouts. Be cautious about overloading on any one team in case their game turns into a blowout.  The only two teams who didn’t play yesterday were the Suns, who host the Spurs, and the Mavericks, who host the Nets. In other games, the first game of the night tips at 7:00 PM ET as the Pistons visit the Wizards followed by two more Eastern Conference matchups as the Heat host the Hawks and the Knicks welcome in Toronto.  In the other two games, the Grizzlies head to Minnesota to take on the T-Wolves and the Jazz take on the Bucks.

There are a lot of solid midrange options for tonight even though there is only a few players who are fantasy stars and all the biggest names have the night off.  Some teams definitely have favorable matchups to attack as you plan out your DraftKings lineups, and I’ve tried to identify some of my favorites on the next few slides to help you find them. On each slide, you’ll find at least three options–one star option, one solid option, and one sleeper option.  Where there are more, I’ve put in more picks that that, but that does help there be a general framework to start with.

To build your lineup, you can blend the sleepers and stars together to get a team you will enjoy cheering for. To see a couple of my lineups, check out the final slide of the post.
