Lineup and Advice

You can build around Westbrook, Wall, or LeBron. All of them should get you at least 50 fantasy points with a good chance they are over 60 fantasy points. There’s some good guaranteed value across the board. Thaddeus Young, Kelly Oubre Jr., and Delon Wright are all value guys who get guaranteed playing time and chances.

I’ve built a lineup around LeBron in my example.

Example DraftKings Daily Picks Lineup

PG: Delon Wright
SG: Kelly Oubre Jr.
SF: Thaddeus Young
PF: Domantas Sabonis
C: Marcin Gortat
G: Darren Collison
F: LeBron James

Explanation of the stars after each pick: Each one of my picks is ranked on a scale of one to five stars. Picks that I give five stars (∗∗∗∗∗) are players that you almost have to own and I have no reservations about owning at their price. Players that get four stars (∗∗∗∗) are players that I think are strong picks to build your roster around. Three-star players (∗∗∗) are middle-of-the-road solid picks who are fairly reliable to produce a good game. Picks receiving two stars (∗∗) are high-risk, high-reward players who do offer enough upside to be in my picks, but also have a significant risk factor that makes them dangerous. One star (∗) players are picks that are the best option around that price point, but who I don’t think are great options. I would take any one-star player over any option not in my picks, but they aren’t picks to build your roster around.
