I am doing a showdown line up on Draft Kings this St. Patrick’s Day between the 76ers and the Bucks. This game has enormous playoff implications regarding seeding in the Eastern Conference.
Here is my line up.
CAPT. Jimmy Butler, SF, 76ers ($13,200): I didn’t want overspend for my captain. Butler made sense because he is affordable and will get plenty of minutes in this game.
UTIL: Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/PF, Bucks ($12,400): The best player in fantasy basketball is a no brainer, especially in big games at home. The Freak is averaging an astounding 57.1 PPG in Draft Kings scoring.
UTIL: Ersan Illysova, C, Bucks, ($3,000): If you want the Greek Freak and Khris Middleton as two of your Bucks, then you need an affordable third player. I am hoping for some quality rebounding production from Illysova.
UTIL: Khris Middleton, SG/SF, Bucks ($8,200): The Bucks will try to spread the floor to get isolation opportunities for Giannis or kick outs to Khris Middleton for open shots. Middleton is a must play in this match up. The Sixers rank 8th in OPRK. They defend shooters well.
UTIL: Tobias Harris, PF/SF, Sixers ($9,000): Harris has been tremendous since joining the Sixers. He is a dual threat in that he can score in the low block and effectively shoot the ball.
UTIL: Boban Marjanovic, C, Sixers ($4,000): Boban has been a solid bench contributor since coming over from the Clippers. He has legitimate DFS value because of the minutes he plays and his ability to rebound.
