January 4th DraftKings Lineup.

I hope everyone had a chance to use the core lineup I gave on Monday. DeRozan had a career night and the other 4 had point totals well above their FPPG average. Nurkic and Valentine were both under 5% owned. Tonight is only a 2 game slate, my wheelhouse is 5-9 games in a night, but I was able to create a lineup that looked decent. My 8 player team broke down to 4 different FPPG tiers; 2 in the 40s, 2 in the 30s, 2 in the 20s and 2 in the 10s. The 40s- Durant 48.8, Paul 42.2 I was Read More

Big Picks, Small Slate. Jan 1, 2018 Draftkings Lineup Help.

Happy New Year everyone. The start of the 2017-18 NBA season was for me, hoping to continue the trend as the calendar rolls over into 2018. Here are some must plays for Monday night. PG. Elfrid Payton, $7,100 Elfrid Payton has been playing very well the past couple of games. His FPPG is 29.8, however, in the last 5 games that average is up to 40.6. He is matched up tonight against Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has done a great job filling in for the injured D'Angelo Russell, but is a Read More

5 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup

Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted. PG Jamal Murray, $5,100 Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night. SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800 I am using the PG slot Read More

DraftKing Tips for November 30th.

  There have been a lot of key injuries this season, and It has made for some fun match ups with bench players getting big minutes in some cases. Drafting players that are 10% drafted or less can definitely be the separation you need from the Chalk DFS players. Here are a few Draftkings players I recommend drafting today, injuries played a big part in most of my picks. Kevin Love, $8,000 Ride the hot hand. Kevin love had an amazing game on Tuesday, he scored a game high 38 points Read More

DraftKings Lineup for November 28th.

Hello, and good day, I hope everyone had a chance to read my first post and give it a try on a cheap contest just for the hell of it. The Lineup I posted yesturday did not finish in the money, but that one was literally the only dud I had. I should have mentioned that I give free lineups on Twitter all the time, and last night I cashed out in 7 contests between DraftKings and FanDuel. Throughout the day I tinker with a new lineup here and there in a Quarter Contest. I will make sure to leave Read More

Draftkings lineup for November 27th.

This is my first article for Fantasybasketball101. I will be giving lineups and draft tips on the DraftKings site. FanDuel is well represented on this site and I am a better player on DraftKings anyways so it works out nicely. I am going to try to write an article on days that have between 5-8 games. Lineups I make in that game range are the ones I am confident in the most. Follow me on PG. Lonzo Ball, $7,100 This is technically a road game for Read More
