FanDuel NBA Lineup Picks, Advice & Analysis for December 17

Saturday's NBA schedule has just six games on it, with the Cleveland Cavaliers among those in action. Cleveland's been on the receiving end of some criticism in recent days for head coach Tyronn Lue's decision to rest LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love for their game against Memphis Wednesday night. All three will be active Saturday night against the Lakers, who on Friday ended an eight-game losing streak with a win in Philadelphia.

Los Angeles has some young players who could cause some trouble, but given their struggles defensively this a game where Cleveland's "big three" could all go off. The Lakers are currently ranked 27th in scoring defense and 29th in defensive rating, which does not bode particularly well for their chances of slowing down the Cavaliers. As a result James ($10,200), Love ($8,400) and Irving ($7,300) are all quality options for FanDuel rosters. Here are our picks for Saturday's games, working with a nine-player roster and a $60,000 salary cap. (Getty)
