NBA DraftKings DFS Lineup Picks 1/25/21

Point Guard

Kyrie Irving ($9,000) vs Heat- The Nets haven’t been playing great as a team since they acquired James Harden, but offensively they have been pretty solid. Kyrie has been arguably the best of the bunch averaging 34.3 PPG and 5.0 APG on 56.5% shooting from the field and 45.5% from 3. These percentages probably aren’t sustainable but with so many weapons on the floor Kyrie should be getting easier shots than he is used to getting. Coming off of a 28 PTS 7 AST 6 REB game vs the Heat in their last meeting, I like him again tonight at home vs Miami.

Shooting Guard

Delon Wright ($5,500) vs 76ers- Delon Wright has been up and down a lot this season but he comes into this game playing much better and he continues to stuff the stat sheet. He should get a lot of playing time tonight with Derrick Rose & Killian Hayes out of the lineup. He may not score in bunches but he will play enough and put up enough REB & AST for him to be a viable fantasy option. Assuming he plays around 30 minutes tonight, I don’t see Delon Wright scoring less than 28 FPTS at a minimum.

Small Forward

OG Anunoby ($6,900) vs Pacers- Anunoby has been improving on the offensive end ever since he entered the league and it is paying off greatly. In the last 6 games OG is averaging 18.8 PPG 6.7 RPG and 2.8 SPG while shooting almost 60% from 3 and 52.7% from the field. The defense has always been there but the offense has been a welcoming sign. In his last game vs the Pacers OG scored 30 PTS with 8 REB and 5 STLs. I have complete faith in rostering Anunoby as he goes for his 8th straight game with 30+ FPTS.

Power Forward

Kristaps Porzingis ($8,200) vs Nuggets- Porzingis missed the Mavericks last game due to “injury management” but he is expected to be a full-go for Dallas against the Nuggets. Denver’s defense is very poor and Porzingis has been shooting the ball great since returning from injury. In his first 6 games of the season he is averaging 20.3 PPG 8.7 RPG and almost 2 BPG while shooting near 50% from the field. In his last 3 games alone he is 27/43 from the field. He may have it tough vs Jokic on the defensive end but on offense he should be able to get whatever shot he wants.

Center

James Wiseman ($5,400) vs Timberwolves- Wiseman has had some growing pains in the early going but it looks like he is shooting the ball more and is getting more in a groove offensively. He has scored 15+ points in each of his last 3 games and has shot the ball at a pretty high percentage as well. He will be up against a Timberwolves team that can’t seem to get a stop and are allowing the 4th most fantasy points to opposing big men this year. Wiseman is just a rookie but he should have the advantage and I think at this price he is worth a look.

Sleeper Play

Rodney Hood ($4,200) vs Thunder- Rodney Hood is only averaging about 3 PPG this season but with the injury to CJ McCollum he should be getting a very sizable minutes increase. He probably won’t be fully unleashed yet due to his recovery from a major injury but he should be a pretty solid value option here. He has already scored 20+ points in 25 minutes since the McCollum injury and with the Blazers looking for offense he could be the guy. Due to this being a back-to-back check to make sure he is playing but if he is, I would have some interest in putting him in my lineup.
