We are back and hopefully last week’s  post is long forgotten and we can rebound with today’s Picks and Lineups 1-13-16.

We are looking to bounce back with a nice full slate on this Wednesday night.

There are several injuries to monitor (as always) and it has become critical to try and stay on top of last minute scratches, game time decisions minutes before tip-off. For this up to date information I have been using Fantasy Alarm alongside Twitter of course.

I know last weeks post had a player who ended up getting scratched. I was not able to update it prior to the games starting, but sincerely hoped you all were able to swap in players in time.

For today’s post I am going to try and just list one player from each position with the hopes a few of my favorite targets will hit.  Sometimes less can be more. These are players I will be targeting heavily in my lineups today. Building around a few of them is more than fine as well.

Daily Fantasy NBA: Picks and Lineups 1-13-16

Remember a Starting DFS Lineup on Fanduel must be built using $50,000 and consists of 2-Point Guards, 2- Shooting Guards, 2- Small Forward, 2-Power Forwards, and 1-Center

Scoring: 3 point shot= 3 pts; 2 point shot= 2 pts; Free Throws= 1 pt; Rebounds= 1.2 pts; Assists= 1.5 pts; Blocks= 2 pts; Steals= 2 pts; Turnovers= -1 pt

Remember a Starting DFS Lineup on DraftKings must be built using $50,000 and consists of 1-Point Guard, 1- Shooting Guards, 1- Small Forward, 1-Power Forwards, 1-Center, 1- Guard, 1- Forward and 1- Utility
Scoring: Point= 1 point; 3 point= +0.5 point; Rebound= 1.25 points; Assist= 1.5 points; Steal= 2 points; Block= 2 points; Turnover= -0.5 points; Double-Double= 1.5 points (1 time per player); Triple-Double= 3 points (1 time per player)

Point Guard

Jrue Holiday, New Orleans Pelicans @ Sacramento Kings ($6,200 on FanDuel and $6,400 on Draft Kings)

Holiday is coming off of a 26 Fantasy point performance last night, and had a monsterous 51.2 point performance on Monday. Tonight Holiday faces the Kings who happen to have allowed 48.5 FanDuel points to point guards over their last 10 games. This makes Holiday a fantastic play tonight and affordable too.

Shooting Guard

Eric Gordon, New Orleans Pelicans @ Sacramento Kings ($4,800 on FanDuel and $4,800 on Draft Kings)

Much like Holiday’s notes above the Kings have not fared much better against players like Gordon. I will likely be stacking up on the Pelicans guards tonight. Allowing 42.5 FanDuel points a game over their last 10 to the shooting guard position spells value for Gordon tonight.

Small Forward

Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks @ Brooklyn Nets ($9,000 on FanDuel and $8,500 on Draft Kings) or Paul George depending on Anthony’s status.

The Nets aren’t a soft defense, but Carmelo has been playing rather well over his last five games. However, he hurt his ankle last night making his chances of playing tonight slim. If he is in fact playing fire him up. If not I would be looking into popping Paul George in to his spot.

Power Forward

Paul Millsap, Atlanta Hawks @ Charlotte Hornets ($8,600 on FanDuel and $8,300 on Draft Kings)

Millsapp should be considered to be a must-play tonight after shredding the Bulls last night. Tonight he gets to face an injury plagued Hornets who will be without their big man Al Jefferson. He becomes the default top option at the power forward position tonight due to injuries. Expect high ownership on Millsapp tonight.


DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans ($10,600 on FanDuel and $10,500 on Draft Kings)

Cousins has been a dominant force over the past two weeks and there is no reason not to pay up for him tonight. Cousins has produced 50 plus FanDuel points over his last four games. The Pelicans have not had much success with big men this season, and honestly it doesn’t matter at this point with Cousins who he plays.

The Lineup(s) (I would play these in some GPP Games as well)
