Daily Fantasy Basketball Playbook – 12/1

Ty Lawson

Welcome back to another full week of daily fantasy basketball! I hope everyone enjoyed their time off, but we are back on the grind to win some money. Tonight is a light night of hoops, but despite only having four games, all of the over/unders are at 190 or more. That’s good news for DFS because they should all be high scoring affairs. Since it is a light night of hoops, I will be posting my optimal lineups with a few thoughts on each player. All of my prices are according to DraftKings. Good luck!

PG – Mo Williams ($5,300)

SG – Jamaal Crawford ($5,600)

SF – K.J. McDaniels ($5,400)

PF – Boris Diaw ($5,000)

C – Marcin Gortat ($6,700)

G – Ty Lawson ($9,100)

F – Thad Young ($6,700)

Util – Kenneth Faried ($5,800)

Thought on the lineup:

Mo Williams has been money lately. It’s hard to fade him. Crawford should be getting a lot of minutes tonight and can score in bunches. I feel he’s got a safe floor but a low ceiling. McDaniels is a wild card, but he should also have a lot of opportunity to put up points tonight. Diaw is a must play with Tim Duncan out on rest and Tiago Splitter questionable. Gortat has been GOAT-at lately, and is a great value at that price. Lawson has been red hot lately, so I have no problem paying up for him. Young will need to score tonight and he can surely drop 30+ tonight if he gets going early. Lastly, Faried has not been great, but he should bang the boards tonight against a Jazz team that has no clue what they want to do with their front court.
