Top NBA DFS picks for Sunday, Jan. 24
One of McClure's top NBA DFS picks for his Sunday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard at $10,000 on DraftKings and $9,700 on FanDuel. Lillard is third in the NBA this season averaging 28.1 points per game, to go along with 4.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists. That includes a 35-point, three-rebound, six-assist effort on Monday against the Spurs.
Lillard is rested after Portland saw a pair of games against Memphis postponed due to COVID-19 issues with the Grizzlies. Lillard has been an NBA DFS terror in his past four games, averaging over 53 daily Fantasy basketball points per game on DraftKings. And with the Knicks at home in the Rose Garden on Sunday, a site Lillard goes for 27.5/5.5/6.8 so far this season, McClure expects another big night from Lillard and recommends him in all NBA DFS formats.
Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Spurs forward DeMar DeRozan at $7,600 on DraftKings and $7,700 on FanDuel. DeRozan is above all his career markers so far in 2020-21, scoring 20.9 points, grabbing 5.5 rebounds and dishing 6.7 assists per game. That includes a 29-point, six-rebound, six-assist effort Friday against the Mavericks.
The 31-year-old DeRozan has been a force all season in San Antonio, scoring 20-plus points in eight of 14 games to begin the 2020-21 campaign. And having gone for over 47 daily Fantasy basketball points on DraftKings in two of his last three games, DeRozan is the kind of consistent NBA DFS force McClure loves. DeRozan and the Spurs get the Wizards on Sunday, a team that allows an NBA-worst 121.3 points per game.
