NBA DraftKings Lineup: Optimal Picks, Analysis for Feb. 19

The NBA--and with it, daily fantasy basketball--is back. OK, so the Association officially returned from the week-long All-Star break on Thursday, but that was a mere three games. It was just on appetizer. On Friday, we get the main course, with 14 games on the slate. Thursday's trade deadline came and went without a lot of moves that will really affect DFS, although you may want to see how guys like Markieff Morris and Tobias Harris look in their new roles before penciling them into your lineup. Friday's slate features a bevy of scoring potential, as six games boast an over/under of at least 209 points. Golden State vs. Portland (219) and Denver vs. Sacramento (218) are projected to be the highest-scoring contests on the day, but there are several different ways to attack Friday's slate. With that in mind, you can click to the right to see the DraftKings lineup I'm going with. (Getty)
