Draftkings NBA Lineup January 4

20 teams go at it tonight which leaves all us Daily Fantasy Sports players 20 rosters  to build our DraftKings lineups with tonight.

For my line ups I like to with some bigger names as well as sleepers that most people will overlook.

PG- Shane Larkin

SG- Kentavious Caldwell Pope

SF- Paul George

PF- Boris Diaw

C- Jeff wITHEY

G- Kemba Walker

F- Kawhi Leonard

UTIL- Rodeny Hood

 

I started off with a sleeper tonight, Shane Larkin from the Brooklyn Nets because he’s now gonna be the starting Point Guard since Jarrett Jack has a season ending torn ACL. He’s been consistent and now with his opportunity for more playing time his workload increases.

I have to with KCP at Shooting Guard tonight with the numbers he’s been producing. He’s averagin 37.7 minutes a game right now and 39.4 in his last 10. He’s putting up 28.3 fppg in his last 10 games which means 19.4% more than his season average.

I’m starting Paul George at Small Forward. He’s been putting up consecutive 30 point games, he goes up against the Heat tonight and lucky for us, they rank 20th aganst SF.

Another sleeper goes in as my Power Forward for tonight. Boris Diaw is looking great matching up against the Bucks, they’re struggling right now so I’m thinking that the Spurs will get on them early, rest their starters, meaning a big role from Diaw. He’s a risk tonight since assumptions go into playing him tonight.

Jeff Withey is my Center tonight because Favors is most likely out. We’ve seen that Withey is able to go against top big men before (Marc Gasol) so the fact that he’s facing Dwight Howard tonight shouldn’t be a huge deal.

In the Guard position, I have Kemba Walker. He’s bee putting up monster numbers when he’s given a heavy workload which we should expect tonight.

Kawhi Leonard starts for me tonght as my Forward. His match-up is a very good one. The Bucks have allowed the 3rd most most fantasy points per game to opposing small forwards this season, and I think we’re looking at a bounceback game in a big way, here.

Rodney Hood is coming off a season best 47.5 fantasy points, in his season high 32 point performance against the Grizzlies Saturday. It was the second straight game Hood broke out for 40+ fantasy points, and now faces a very generous defensive team in the Houston Rockets. Not saying that Hood will repeat his showing from Saturday night, but he should continue his short hot streak against a team vying for sole ownership of most points allowed a night.
