NBA Starting 5 (GPP): Monday, March 19th
The Starting 5 Series will provide Grinders a quick look at the day’s top positional plays, as analyzed by one of our daily fantasy sports experts.
Monday, March 19th
It’s a very interesting eight-game slate because of all the value on the board and all the elite superstars you want to fit onto your teams (LeBron, Giannis, Draymond, and Aldridge). But, to fit these guys in, you are going to have to plug in value around them, so for today’s Starting Five I’m taking a look at some value options to consider for your GPP teams.
All pricing/stats revolve around DraftKings.
Point Guard: Antonio Blakeney – $3,200 – Chicago Bulls
Cameron Payne will be the chalk today, and for very good reason, but let’s not overlook Blakeney. In the first game without Dunn/LaVine, Blakeney saw his minutes boost from low 20s up to 27 minutes. What didn’t change was the poor shooting for the young guard, who has shot under 30% in each of the last three games. Blakeney is in the NBA, so he’s not going to shoot 30% forever, and his price didn’t move despite the minutes boost. If we get a game for Blakeney in which he shoots 40%, he’ll right be in the 20-22 DK point area, with upside for more if he shoots more efficiently.
