Our hot streak continues here at FTA! Last night we absolutely slaughtered cash games and GPP alike as top picks went off across the board. I mostly ran GPP, but even fading a cash stud like Russell Westbrook couldn’t slow my lineup down en route to 335.25 points! The NBA slate is a little funky today as we have a 4 game early slate, and a 4 game late slate. I’m going to spoil my readers by producing TWO articles today. This article will cover Lucas Nogueira and the early slate on Draftkings daily NBA.

Lucas Nogueira headlines Draftkings Daily NBA early slate 1/8/17
Lucas Nogueira – Toronto Raptors ($3400)
Don’t look now, but Lucas Nogueira has started 2 straight games for the Toronto Raptors at power forward! As long as Patrick Patterson remains out, we can expect that trend to continue for a 3rd straight contest as the Raptors get set to face the Houston Rockets. In his first game as a starter, Lucas Nogueira played 26 minutes while posting 21.5 fantasy points. Last night Lucas Nogueira started his second straight game and played 42 minutes (in OT) while recording 9 points, 1 assist, 8 rebounds, 2 steals and a block for 26 fantasy points! This play is a little risky as Toronto plays later, and Patrick Patterson could return to crush all Lucas Nogueira’s value, but on a short 4 game slate I think it is worth the risk. I’ll be locking in Nogueira to my lineups at a far too cheap price tag.
Other Options: Jonas Valanciunas, Joel Embiid, Deandre Jordan
That wraps up my early slate picks for Draftkings NBA today! If you’re playing NFL or NBA, be sure to join us in live chat as we cover the top plays for today’s slate! Lucas Nogueira is a nice safe value at his price tag, but there could be some late news that comes out to adjust our lineups, so be sure to check in before locking in any suggested picks.
Keep an eye out for the late slate picks as that article should be published later today! Good luck on Draftkings this evening!
