DraftKings daily picks: Fantasy basketball lineup – January 18, 2018

ATLANTA, GA - NOVEMBER 30: LeBron James /
8 of 12

High Salary PF

Kevin Love, CLE vs ORL ($7,400): After missing value in two straight, Love’s numbers have ticked up in his last two games. He had 37.75 fantasy points against the Magic on Jan. 6 and is averaging 36.3 fantasy points in two games against Orlando this season. 36.3 fantasy points would put him over value on Thursday. Given the matchup, Love is solid play. He should give you a fair share of points and rebounds to go along with an assist or two. ***

Al Horford, BOS vs PHI ($7,000): Horford had 35.5 fantasy points against the Sixers on Jan. 11. He’s averaging 37.4 fantasy points in three games against the Sixers this season. The Sixers are 29th against the position in their last 15 games. Given Horford’s success against them and his overall game, there is a lot to love about Horford on Thursday. If Kyrie Irving or Marcus Smart are out, expect his assist numbers to increase as he takes on a bigger playmaking role. ****

Bismack Biyombo, ORL at CLE ($6,200): Biyombo is under the average salary, but this just goes to show the limited options on Thursday. Biyombo had 26.25 fantasy points against the Cavaliers on Jan. 6. He’s had 30+ fantasy points in his last three, including a 45.5 fantasy point performance against the Timberwolves on Tuesday. I continue to love Biyombo’s game as the starting center in Orlando. He’s a reliable rebounder, scorer, and defender. ****
