Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks Update 2/10/14
While we don't know everything about everyone (and we won't unfortunately with some games tipping off well after seven) we do have some injury and replacement updates that could effect your lineups. Take a look back at our NBA picks for today
Rajon Rondo is out tonight putting Jerryd Bayless FD $4,300 DK $4,600 DS $7,934 and to a lesser extent Phil (Flip) Pressey FD $3,800 DK $3,000 DS $4,563 in play. Bayless still comes off the bench when Rondo sits, but he plays a lion share of the minutes. He's been productive in Rondo's absence. I think he makes a solid punt option especially on FanDuel and DraftStreet. The price is getting a little steep on DraftKings.
Ty Lawson is sitting tonight against Indiana and Randy Foye FD $6,500 DK $6,600 DS $13,347 will handle the point guard duties. Getting to start a PG at SG is an opportunity that you shouldn't pass up regardless of the opponent. And it should be said that while Indiana is among the best in the league against opponent's big men, they are about league average against point guards. Foye will be a high percentage start in double ups. You should have him in your lineups in every format.
With Foye moving to PG Quincy Miller FD $3,500 DK $3,400 DS $5,476 will get the start and I'd be targeting him on DraftStreet. But on FanDuel and DraftKings I'll be looking at Evan Fournier FD $3,500 DK $3,400 DS $8,118 a bit more. Fournier should see plenty of minutes and has a great chance to pay those salaries on a weird night at SG.
Kyle Singler FD $3,900 DK $3,900 DS $8,389 will continue to start at shooting guard even with Mo Cheeks hitting the skids. Honestly, I probably should have included him in my original picks as he's been productive at these prices. I don't think you need him on DraftStreet, but FanDuel and DraftKings are still in that super low range.
Boris Diaw FD $4,300 DK $3,500 DS $8,282 becomes interesting with the news that Tiago Splitter will sit again. Diaw, while cheap (especially on DK) is anything but consistent. He has flashes of amazing and flashes of puke. He'll be dealing with Monroe and Drummond down low, but neither of those guys is particularly adept at defense.
David Lee is annoyingly a game time decision and we run the risk of missing out on some serious daily fantasy goodness by not knowing what's happening with the forward situation against the Sixers.
Andrew Bogut is still a game time decision and we probably won't hear anything before early lineup lock. But if something comes out, Jermaine O'Neal FD $3,700 DK $3,500 DS $8,889 makes the perfect plug and play against a Sixer team that couldn't defend you in the low post. And I know your game is a little rusty, especially the jump hook. But you get the idea.
