Wooooooo, it’s DraftKings Friday!
What’s a better way to kick off the early part of the Holiday weekend (kinda, sorta) than by hopping in a DraftKings contest and watch that sweet, sweet money flowing your way on Friday night. I love playing some daily fantasy, because last Friday I had Anthony Davis as a big-$ pick and he goes down in the first quarter… Wipe the slate clean tomorrow! And tripled up a couple days ago in my next foray.
We’re again hopping into the NBA $45K LAYUP, where $45,000 in payouts are given out, including a cool, hard $5 grand to the overall winner. Pick me! Pick me! Oh man, I’ve got a wedding coming up next year and $5,000 would go a long way in paying for… The chairs? Everything is so friggin’ expensive! And at only a $2 entry fee, even broke-as-a-joke-JB can afford dat! So hop in that contest linked there, join us for a festive time tonight, and good luck to your DraftKings line-ups!
Here are my starting 5 for DraftKings tonight:
PG – Russell Westbrook – $11,500 – Spending huge up top! OKC is going at the Lakers, and there’s a good chance Kevin Durant sits after rolling his ankle last night (game-time decision at the time of this post). We all know how awful the Lakers are, and Westbrook in a game on ESPN, in a major market… Mmmmm, Pavlovian response!
SG – Jimmy Butler – $6,800 – Look at that price tag! Of course, the price probably doesn’t have Derrick Rose being out built in, so this is probably the most popular buy tonight. But I want in on the Buckets! Out of control last night (35/5/7/4/1 good for 62.75 DK points), and as I mentioned in the Daily Notes this morning, I think sans-Rose he’s a top-15 fantasy player.
SF – Wilson Chandler – $6,000 – Willllllllson! If he doesn’t go off tonight, I might strand myself on a deserted island… Off 36 DK points on Wednesday against the Rox, the volleyball gets another home game against the Clippers tonight in what should be a high-flyin’, balls-in-the-air kinda night! Aka, acrobat orgy kinda game. I see him being solid.
PF – Patrick Patterson – $5,000 – Pit-Pat! As consistent as they come, Patterson has a good shot to run some mad second-unit minutes in a blowout special at Detroit. “Raptors are loose in the Palace!” That would be my announcer quote from the game, and consequently the movie poster line from Jurassic Park 12.
C – Mason Plumlee – $6,100 – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! A fixture of my DK teams of late, Plumlee is offering great numbers with an affordable price tag. Four straight of 33.75+, and while the matchup isn’t great against the Cavs, he should still give you a professorial outing.
There you have it folks, a glimpse into my $5,000 winnings for the evening! Be sure to click into the NBA $45K LAYUP, track my team throughout the night (jbrazzball), and talk some mad game at me if you’re beating me! Have a great weekend!
