NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball – Sleepers + Cash Game Picks 2/8

Larger 10 game slate on the schedule tonight, however it’s not filled with a ton of superstars – so your lineup combinations probably don’t need to run as deep as they typically would. The mini slates look like what I’ll be targeting the most of my bankroll towards – especially the 8pm 4 game slate.


Here are the target scores for Draftkings

Draftkings 7pm (10 Games): 265
Draftkings 7:30pm (2 Games): 245
Draftkings 8pm (4 Games): 255

Here are the cash-game targets and GPP targets for the shorter slates:

Draftkings 7pm (10 Games): Kevin Love, Serge Ibaka,
Draftkings 7:30pm (2 Games): Mudiay, Thad Young, Brook Lopez, Drummond
Draftkings 8pm (4 Games): Westbrook, Ibaka, Teague

Not too many sleepers really work/or are needed right now when I’m filling out Draftkings lineups. We’ll see how that all shakes out later on tonight. Also – my definition of ‘sleeper’ might be different than others.

2/7 Recap: The last few days I’ve been playing NBA DFS – but was working on some stock analysis that I publish from time to time, so no real time to spell out the details. Yesterday, I was busy making food most of the day (and eating it), as there’s nothing I really like doing more than cook, eat and watch NBA basketball!!!! I went to the gym during the 2nd half of the Super Bowl to burn off the pizza & soda – which was really nice because I was the only one in the fitness room for over 1 hour … a room that normally has 15+ people in it.

Fanduel nba dfs lineup

My lineup yesterday in cash was pretty simple. Deng was the only player I had that was low-owned … otherwise the rest here is standard. I really didn’t do that good, finishing in the mid-30’th place in the 50/50’s I was in, but you take it in cash & move on. I’ve been avoiding GPPs for the most part because I’m in the cash game mode right now and will likely keep that going tonight. If I do play GPPs, it will be either the 2/4 game slate. Good luck!

I will be updating this page as the day rolls along.
