Point Guard

Ricky Rubio, vs. Mavericks (FD: $7,400, DK: $7,100)
Projected Points: FD: 33.66, DK: 34.15

The Jazz are currently battling over the eighth playoff spot in the West versus the Nuggets and Clippers. This leaves Rubio to leave it all on the court night after night, which he continues to prove to do so. Averaging an insanely impressive plus/minus of +21.3 over the last 617 minutes, he has turned into the superstar of his team.

Dennis Schroder, vs. Kings (FD: $6,200, DK: $6,500)

Projected Points: FD: 35.61, DK: 37.03

Schroder didn’t get the memo that the Hawks are out of contention for a playoff spot. Tuesday night, in an unlikely win over the Jazz he managed a career-high 41 points. Thursday night he’ll go up against a mediocre Sacramento defense that is currently giving up 22.4 points per game and 8.27 assists to point guards, two categories that Schroder has been excelling in lately.

Shooting Guard

James Harden, vs. Pistons (FD: $11,600, DK: $11,600)
Projected Points: FD: 53.49, DK: 55.01

In USA Today, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said it quite well when he stated, “That’s the best offensive player I’ve ever seen. They were running guys to him, and he just steps a little further back and hits a three. You know, the way he can pass and see the floor, get fouls, layups, floaters, maybe a lob, maybe out to the corner, he has so many weapons, and now he’s shooting those stepback threes, it’s impossible to guard him. It’s impossible.” Look for him to put on another show at home tonight versus the Pistons.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, vs. Pelicans (FD: $5,500, DK: $6,200)

Projected Points: FD: 32.6, DK: 32.72

The Lakers rank first in pace of play, while the Pelicans check in at third, making this Thursday’s fastest-paced matchup. It’s entirely possible that if you blink, you might miss a possession. Caldwell-Pope will receive plenty of opportunities at the shooting guard position, as the Pelicans are on the second game of a back-to-back. I like him best for FanDuel cash games, as his salary there seems perfectly priced. You should see him hit his expected floor of around 32 points.


Small Forward

Joe Ingles, vs. Mavericks (FD: $6,600, DK: $6,400)
Projected Points: FD: 27.01, DK: 28.16

If you’re looking for a hot hand on one of the hottest teams in the NBA, look no further than Ingles. The Jazz, having won 9 out of their last 10, are on a heater at the right time of the season. Each member of the team is stepping up like never before. The price is most certainly right for Ingles, as in his last 10 games he has averaged 14.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Don’t be surprised when you look up on the stat sheet and find him having a 6x-6.5x value game against the Mavs Thursday night.

E’Twaun Moore, vs. Lakers (FD: $4,500, DK: $4,300)

Projected Points: FD: 21.16, DK: 21.64

Even though I’ve already given you a relatively inexpensive option for small forward, I have one more, Moore. In what promises to be the fastest-paced game of the night, Moore will have more than ample opportunities to shoot the ball, which is perfect timing as he appears to be at the beginning of a heater. The Lakers are giving up 30.2 fantasy points to small forward starters, and it shows as last time out versus the Lakers, he scored 29.5 DraftKings/FanDuel points.


Power Forward

Anthony Davis, vs. Lakers (FD: $12,500, DK: $11,700)
Projected Points: FD: 61.82, DK: 61.33

In the middle of the Pelicans’ charge to the playoffs, no team has proved itself capable of stopping Davis. As a result, the Pelicans are leaning hard on him towards the end of the season. In his last ten games, he has managed to average a double-double grabbing 11.3 rebounds and 28.3 points per game. If you can afford the hefty price tag, there is undoubtedly an opportunity for him to go off against the Lakers. In their last two meetings against each other this season he has 71.25 DK points and 72.7 FanDuel points.

Aaron Gordon, vs. 76ers (FD: $7,500, DK: $7,300) 

Projected Points: FD: 34.84, DK: 35.01

With Coach Frank Vogel giving Gordon 34 minutes of playing time in Tuesday nights game, you can rest assured Gordon is back and ready to play some ball. Historically, he has done quite well versus the 76ers this season, averaging 18 points, eight rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. If you can’t afford the sizable salary of Anthony Davis in your lineup, you can pivot toward Gordon. Being the hero of what is left of the Magic, he is unlikely to let you down.



Rudy Gobert, vs. Mavericks (FD: $9,500, DK: $8,300)
Projected Points: FD: 39.81, DK: 39.72

With a price of only $8,300 on Draftkings, I don’t see why you shouldn’t lock Gobert in all of your DK lineups for Thursday night. Gobert has been an unstoppable force as no player has been better than him value-wise for March. He has managed to rack up 18.9 points, 13.9 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and has been getting the minutes, averaging 36.1 per game. The FanDuel price seems right, but take advantage of the low salary play on DraftKings while you have the chance.


Dewayne Dedmon, vs. Kings (FD: $5,300, DK: $5,600)
Projected Points: FD: 29.58, DK: 29.37

Dedmon has been on the receiving end of some extra minutes in place of John Collins, who has been dealing with an ankle injury. Tuesday night he went off, most impressively against one of the top defenses in the league, managing to hit 15 points, 15 rebounds, two steals, four assists and a block in 29 minutes of action on the court. He could easily crush value tonight on both websites, as last time out versus the Kings he scored 55 FanDuel points and 56 DraftKings points in only 24 minutes of play. Just imagine what he will accomplish with those few extra precious minutes.

Point Guards

Daily Fantasy Basketball NBA Sleepers Lineup Picks for 3/01/18

Jeff Teague, vs. Trail Blazers (FD: $7,700, DK: $7,200)
Projected Points: FD: 28.49, DK: 28.93

Over his last five starts Teague has been en feugo. Putting up 21.6 points per game, 6.4 assists, getting the heavy minutes (35), all of this while averaging 40 fantasy points per game. At this price point, with this floor (~32.5), I just don’t see why you wouldn’t have him locked in your DraftKings cash lineup.

De’Aaron Fox, vs. Nets (FD: $5800, DK: $5600)
Projected Points: FD: 28.42, DK: 28.81

If you can’t afford Lillard as the stud of the night then look no further than Fox. Fox is on the uptick every since getting over his tragic pink-eyed incident last Sunday. He’ll get the minutes that you’ll want to see, around 30, which should be where his floor will remain intact versus the sad Brooklyn Nets.

Stud of Night:
Damian Lillard – The expensive pick of the night but I believe that he will be worth it, as he has been on a roll lately.


Shootings Guards

Daily Fantasy Basketball NBA Sleepers Lineup Picks for 3/01/18

C.J. McCollum, vs. Timberwolves (FD: $7200, DK: $6900)
Projected Points: FD: 33.9, DK: 35.05

Could be one of the chalkiest plays of the night, however, some people might stay away as he had a rough night last night after only scoring 11 points. But, history generally shows that after a rough game he bounces back just fine, especially against Minnesota who give up 35 fantasy points to shooting guard starters. McCollum devoured the Wolves last time out, hitting the perfect lineup and in both DraftKings and FanDuel.

D’Angelo Russell, vs. Kings (FD: $7500, DK: $7300)
Projected Points: FD: 36.72, DK: 38.35

Russell really came through in the last quarter of Tuesday nights game versus the Cavs. Scoring 45 fantasy points, while hitting 9-of-18 shots and three 3-pointers for a total of 25 points, five rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes of play. His numbers have certainly looked solid, and so has the knee he had surgery on since joining the Nets.


Small Forward

Daily Fantasy Basketball NBA Sleepers Lineup Picks for 3/01/18

DeMarre Carroll, vs. Kings (FD: $5900, DK: $5900)
Projected Points: FD: 29.07, DK: 29.48

I like Carroll tonight to EAT against the Sacramento defense, as Rich Block from Rich’s Building Blocks videos would say in our Lineuplab Facebook Group. His salary is inexpensive and he should undoubtedly hit around the 5x value range. His fantasy points per game have increased over his last five starts showing that this is his perfect time for a perfect lineup.

Nemanja Bjelica, vs. Trail Blazers (FD: $5800, DK: $5300)
Projected Points: FD: 26.29, DK: 26.56

With Jimmy Butler now out for several weeks, it’s the ideal time to lock him into your lineups. Another underpriced player who is playing around the high 30’s in minutes per game. Monday night versus Sacramento Bjelica was in both of the perfect lineups after garnering 36 FanDuel points and 34 DraftKings points. At this price, he is a steal with a solid floor for cash games.

Studs of the Night (if you can afford them, go for it):
Brandon Ingram, vs. Heat (FD: $7400, DK: $6900)
Projected Points: FD: 31.38, DK: 31.66

LeBron James, vs. 76ers (FD: $12200, DK: $11900)
Projected Points: FD: 55.31, DK: 56.42


Power Forward

Daily Fantasy Basketball NBA Sleepers Lineup Picks for 3/01/18

Dario Saric, vs. Cavaliers (FD: $7100, DK: $6500)
Projected Points: FD: 29.19, DK: 30.49

Saric has been one of the most consistent players for the 76ers, scoring double digits in 40 straight games. What worries me, slightly, is that Philadelphia has just acquired Ersan Ilyasova and is available to play in Thursday nights game, however, being brand new to the squad it is hard to imagine him taking away a lot of playing time from the most consistent guy on the team.

Zach Randolph, vs. Nets (FD: $6100, DK: $6300)
Projected Points: FD: 27.32, DK: 28.11

Randolph tonight is yet another guy poised to go off if Skal Labissiere (ankle) sits (as of right now he is probable). Randolph has been playing well as the Kings continue to have problems with the Center/Forward position. He scored 36.5 DK and 35.1 FanDuel points and does rather well against teams that play at a higher pace (the Nets play at the sixth pace in the league, while the Kings are close the bottom, locking in the 3rd slowest pace in the league.)

Punt Play:
Ed Davis, vs. Timberwolves (FD: $4000, DK: $4200)
Projected Points: FD: 13.4, DK: 13.25



Daily Fantasy Basketball NBA Sleepers Lineup Picks for 3/01/18

Hassan Whiteside, vs. Lakers (FD: $7,700, DK: $8,000)
Projected Points: FD: 39.9, DK: 40.17

Over the course of the past ten games, Whiteside has managed to average a double-double putting up 13.7 points per game while grabbing 12.3 rebounds per game. He’s also nearly averaging two blocks per game during the same timeframe and you know how valuable those blocks can be in fantasy basketball. On Tuesday night he crushed the 76ers, putting up 46 DraftKings and 49 FanDuel points.

Julius Randle, vs. Heat (FD: $7,700, DK: $7,500)
Projected Points: FD: 33.8, DK: 34.4

What’s not to love about Julius Randle as of late? Even his coach commended him, saying that he been playing with energy, impact and consistency. His minutes over the last three games have averaged up to 32.5 per game, while his fantasy points have been value-worthy (44.3 DraftKings / 41 FanDuel). Randle has a solid floor of the high 30’s/low 40’s lately, look for him to beat projections tonight.

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Wednesday brings some hot-action in the NBA with 9 games on the schedule.  There are plenty of options at the Shooting Guard and Small Foward positions, but it could get a little tricky in some of the other spots. That’s why it’s key to find the right cheap daily fantasy basketball sleepers that could help you create a winning entry. Sign up for our Newsletter and try our Playerlab tool, where you can filter the stats that matter the most and find the value players that are low-owned on FanDuel and DraftKings like Andrew Harrison and Jarell Martin.

Point Guards

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Andrew Harrison, vs. Suns (FD: $6,000, DK: $5,700)
Projected Points: FD: 29.79, DK: 29.26

While Tyreke Evans sits out with his ribs injury, Harrison has taken full advantage of the usage rate (as it has increased 3.67%). Not only is Evans out but so many of the other Grizzlies are struggling with injuries as well right now. Which leaves Harrison in prime position to soak up the minutes and score the points especially against one of the top ten worst defenses in the league. Last time out versus the Suns Harrison scored 30 DraftKings / Fanduel points on 30 minutes of play.

J.J. Barea, vs. Thunder (FD: $6,500, DK: $5,800)
Projected Points: FD: 29.51, DK: 31.42

Barea had a quick move to the bench on Monday but still managed to garner 36 DraftKings points / 33 FanDuel points in 26 minutes of play. Shooting 7-of-11, dishing out nine assists while making three 3-pointers for 19 points. Now they decided that his production is so key to the team that they can’t keep him on the bench as he is back in the starting lineup tonight. He is a consistent player with a great price on DraftKings.


Shootings Guards

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Evan Fournier, vs. Raptors (FD: $5,900, DK: $5,300)
Projected Points: FD: 26.87, DK: 27.76

Orlando and Toronto are currently eighth and ninth in pace-of-play, this means plenty of scoring opportunities for as there is a Vegas total of 221 tonight. Fournier has definitely been seeing the minutes, ever since the Magic sent Elfrid Payton to the Suns. If he gets his regular playing time of around 34-35 minutes he might be able to produce near the top of his ceiling against the Suns, meaning 40 fantasy points.

Josh Jackson, vs. Grizzlies (FD: $5,100, DK: $5,600)
Projected Points: FD: 17.69, DK: 17.74

Why isn’t Josh Jackson constantly in the starting rotation? I’m not sure that’s a great question. His minutes hit are generally 27-30 making him a fairly good runner-up for the sixth man of the year award (we all know that Lou Williams will win this again, right?) Jackson was impressive Monday night versus the Pelicans, scoring 20 points with 12 rebounds and getting that not so coveted double-double. Last time out versus the Grizzlies Jackson managed to score 31.5 DraftKing points and 29.6 FanDuel points.


Small Forward

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Taurean Prince, vs. Pacers (FD: $5,200, DK: $5,700)
Projected Points: FD: 23.19, DK: 23.33

Prince is coming off of a game in which he hit a total of 24 points, three rebounds, three assists and three steals. For a total of 40 DraftKings / Fanduel points. His numbers seem to be steadily increasing, which if you believe in that sort of thing, this means he could be on the start of a heater.

Trevor Ariza, vs. Clippers (FD: $4,700, DK: $4,600)
Projected Points: FD: 23.89, DK: 24.02

Now this one comes with a warning, Ariza recently missed nine games with a hamstring injury. His coach says that he may limit him, but he really has yet to have done so. This is one of those picks where it could go either way, he has done well against the Clippers in the past and we are expecting the total to be the highest in the league tonight. Sometimes you get a feeling that’s beyond description, Ariza is that gut-feeling for me tonight.


Power Forward

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Davis Bertans, vs. Pelicans (FD: $4100, DK: $3900)
Projected Points: FD: 11.46, DK: 11.65

Pau Gasol (knee) has been ruled out Wednesday night, making his way into the starting lineup is Bertans again. He generally gets minutes in the high 20’s – low 30’s when he starts and versus a Pelicans squad who are not that great of a defensive squad down-low I would expect about a 20 floor, 27 ceiling from Bertans tonight. Which means, not *great* production, but he is a fantastic guy if you’re looking to save some money so that you can put in one of those studs that Mike Barner talks about in his Sports Illustrated article today.

Jarell Martin, vs. Suns (FD: $4100, DK: $4400)
Projected Points: FD: 22.93, DK: 22.8

First of all, the Phoenix Suns are the worst (in the past four weeks) at guarding the power forward position. Averaging 61.36 fantasy points to competitors and giving up 15.55 rebounds per game. Secondly, Martin’s minute increase in the past three games has seen a boost by nearly 8 mins per game. When he started last time versus the Suns he scored 27 DraftKings and 30 FanDuel points in 34 minutes.




NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Lineup Picks for 2/28/18

Andre Drummond, vs. Bucks (FD: $10,300, DK: $9,600)
Projected Points: FD: 50.44, DK: 51.08

The center position is always a position you want to try to pay up for, simply because they generally receive the most points. Drummond is on a heater, there’s no denying that he’ll probably be the chalkiest of options at the position. But, I think he is definitely the guy to pay up for today. Last time out versus the Bucks he scored 62 DraftKings and 59 FanDuel points. He is a must play in all formats on DraftKings and if you can afford him, FanDuel as well.

Marcin Gortat, vs. Warriors (FD: $4700, DK: $4800)
Projected Points: FD: 18.54, DK: 18.55

Gortat is not a bad cheap option, if you need a salary saver, at the position. You just have to find the nights when he is capable of scoring at least 30 fantasy points. Tonight is one of those nights. Last time out versus the Warriors he scored 33 DraftKings and FanDuel points. Not a bad punt play if you need one here.

Best MLB Draftkings Lineup for Tonight – 06/08/2017

*Chris Durell*

Best MLB Draftkings Lineup for Tonight – June 08

Welcome back to the best MLB Draftkings lineup for tonight, today on tap we have another short-slate Thursday. I will be covering my top pitching options and my top stack to target for tonight’s eight-game main slate.

Put your favorite stacks from the article below in our lineup optimizer and hit calculate. You can let it fill in the rest of the spots for you or choose your personal favorites from the MLB Player Lab.

Lance McCullers - Best MLB Draftkings Lineup for Tonight - Lineuplab


Lance McCullers
Opponent – @KC
Park – Kauffman Stadium (Neutral)
Vegas Favorite (HOU -190)
Vegas Total (9.0)

McCullers is the second biggest favorite on the slate to Jon Lester and the Cubs but has the better matchup today. While Lester and Price face Top 5 offenses in the Rockies and Yankees, McCullers gets a date with the Royals who sit second to last in overall runs scored this season and rank 26th in wOBA and 27th in wRC+ vs. right-handed pitching this season. For McCullers, it has been a very positive start to the season with a 6-1 record and while he has given up some home runs (18% HR/FB rate), he sits with a 2.71 ERA and slightly lower 2.68 xFIP. Even more good news is that he has cut his walks almost in half from last season’s disaster while keeping the swinging strike rate above 12% and the K/9 rate above 10. He is the clear choice for me on FanDuel where the Top 3 are only separated by a couple hundred bucks but on DraftKings there is a case to be made for the other two options who come at a sizeable discount. I still trust him in all formats.

Jake Odorizzi
Opponent – vs. CWS
Park – Tropicana Field (Pitcher Positive)
Vegas Favorite (TB -166)
Vegas Total (8.0)

For tournaments, I love taking a shot with Jake Odorizzi tonight for a few reasons. First of all, he is in the exact same price range as Edinson Volquez who is coming off a no-hitter against the Diamondbacks which should have people chasing points. Not that I won’t have a few shares but I feel Odorizzi is a perfect pivot with projected lower ownership. He strikes out just over league average batters per nine but that should get a boost tonight as he faces a White Sox team who ranks right near the bottom of all offensive categories vs. right-handed pitching including a 23.7% strikeout rate. There is definitely downside to Odorizzi (not safe in cash) as he has had issues keeping the ball in the park (18% HR/FB rate) but he has been much better at home with an ERA of 2.90 vs. 4.50 on the road.

Adam Jones - Best MLB Draftkings Lineup for Tonight - Lineuplab.com


Baltimore Orioles vs. Joe Ross (WSH)
Park – Nationals Park (Pitcher Positive)
Vegas – (BAL +142)
Vegas Total (9.0)

The Nats actually come in as early favorites in one of the highest projected Vegas totals on the slate. While Joe Ross has been a disaster this year, Alec Asher has not been any better is clearly the worse overall pitcher. Back to Joe Ross. While he does present some issues with his above average strikeout rate (8.5 K/9) he has been getting hit extremely hard this season to the tune of a 39.4% hard contact rate against. This has led to 22.5% of his fly balls to leave the yard, giving up nine home runs in his first six starts. The fact that the Orioles are also likely to be without Manny Machado tonight, after injuring his wrist last night, leads me to believe that they could come under-owned in tournaments. I think it is a mistake to overlook them as they come with a ton of power, even without their elite third basemen.

Top Stack – Seth Smith, Adam Jones, Mark Trumbo, Chris Davis

Fanduel MLB Lineup for 06/02/17

*Chris Durell*

Fanduel MLB Lineup for 06/02/17

Welcome back for another fantastic Friday in daily fantasy baseball. We have an elite core of starting pitchers tonight, probably the best since opening day. Beware as lineup lock approaches, however, as there is a slight weather concern in the Astros vs. Rangers game that features Keuchel vs. Darvish.

Put your favorite stacks from the article below in our lineup optimizer and hit calculate. You can let it fill in the rest of the spots for you or choose your personal favorites from the MLB Player Lab.

Clayton Kershaw - Fanduel MLB Lineup - Lineuplab.com


Clayton Kershaw
Opponent – @ MIL
Park – Miller Park(Hitter Positive)
Vegas Favorite (LAD -230)
Vegas Total (7.5)

Happy Kershaw day my friends. While the park is a downgrade going into Milwaukee tonight, this is the best pitcher in the game today and you should not worry at all. The good news is that the salary has settled back down into somewhat normal territory as he is at his lowest in four starts on FanDuel and reasonable on DraftKings as well considering he has been over $13.5K in four of his last five starts. The strikeouts are slightly down early in the season (9.9 K/9 rate) but nothing to concern yourself about as he faces a Brewers team that is currently striking out over 25% of the time vs. left-handed pitching and have their best hitter on the 10-day disabled list(Braun). Kershaw is the top overall pitcher tonight and safe in all formats.

German Marquez
Opponent – @ SD
Park – Petco Park(Pitcher Positive)
Vegas Favorite (COL -120)
Vegas Total (7.5)

Next, we will turn our attention to one of the best pitchers park in the big leagues. The Rockies travel to San Diego tonight to take on the Padres in Petco and will throw young German Marquez on the bump. The 22-year-old had some struggles early on giving up 5+ earned runs in his first two Coors starts but has been locked in every since. In his last four starts, including two in Coors, he has limited opponents to three total earned runs while striking out 22 and walking seven. Tonight he gets a start vs. a Padres team that has scored the third-fewest runs in the league and rank 27th in wOBA and wRC+ vs. right-handed pitching. He isn’t likely going to win you a tournament on his own but makes a tremendous SP2 on DraftKings if you are rostering Kershaw or Strasburg.

Miguel Cabrera - Fanduel MLB Lineup - Lineuplab


Detroit Tigers vs. Derek Holland (CWS)
Park – Comerica Park (Neutral)
Vegas – (DET -185)
Vegas Total (8.5)

The Tigers lead the way tonight as they currently sit with the highest implied run total. They sit in the middle of the pack when it comes to runs scored and has been a sub .500 team in 2017 but still pack a lot of punch in the middle of that lineup, especially against left-handed pitching. The implied total comes from a combination of the Tigers loaded with right-handed bats and their matchup vs. Derek Holland. He has actually performed above expectation to this point with a 2.37 ERA but with ground ball rate under 40% and a swing and miss rate under 9% he is likely to regress sooner than later. The xFIP(4.75) that is more than double the ERA also points to this and the best part, from a stacking against perspective, is that he is giving up just over 37% hard contact.

Top Stack: Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez, Justin Upton


Cincinnati Reds vs. Mike Foltynewicz (ATL)
Park – Great American Ballpark(Hitter Positive)
Vegas – (CIN -108)
Vegas Total (10.0)

Next up, we are going to head to Great American Ballpark and stack the home team tonight. The Reds sit with the second highest implied run total behind the Tigers tonight so I am not getting crazy, by any means, but targeting the high upside teams in great matchups. The Big Red Machine not only ranks inside the Top 10 in hitting vs. right-handed pitching but they have also been on a tear lately with 14 home runs over the last seven days. Tonight they will face the Braves and Mike Foltynewicz who has been wildly inconsistent this season. He has shown flashes of being a serviceable option but has taken advantage of weaker hitting teams. He isn’t a complete gas can but sits with just an average K rate(7.3 K/9) and has given up eight home runs in his last six starts. Two of those starts resulted in five and seven earned runs against so the upside is most definitely there vs. the high-powered Reds.

Top Stack – Billy Hamilton, Zach Cozart, Joey Votto, Adam Duvall
