DFS NBA FanDuel Starting 5 Lineup Advice 3/8/18

I haven’t posted a Starting 5 column in awhile, I’ve been too busy working on updating my spreadsheet. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can view it here. The NBA season is sadly winding down, and it’s becoming difficult to determine who is playing each night with all these teams tanking… I mean letting their young guys play.

We have a nice sized five-game slate tonight to work with and we have a lot of Western Conference playoff teams. What does that have to do with anything, you ask? Easy, the Western Conference playoff race is so tight, with a mere four games separating the three seed Trailblazers with the 10-seeded Utah Jazz, that these teams can’t afford to take nights off or they could find themselves out of the playoffs. Stacking those teams might be a good idea, they are the Timberwolves, Spurs, Warriors

Stacking those teams might be a good idea with the Timberwolves, Spurs, Warriors and the Thunder all on the slate. The Warriors are pretty safe from falling out of the playoffs, but if they want to fend off the Rockets for home-court, they need to keep winning.

Let’s look at tonight’s slate…
