Basketball fantasy picks – 03/04/16
There’s eleven NBA games pick from Friday. A nice brass of elite value picks will be available, with the likes of LeBron James, John Wall and Paul George. But the question is will they deliver the merchandise. This is your basketball fantasy picks, presented by FanPicks RotoPicker.
- Kyrie Irving ($5,600)
Irving is averaging a career low 4.3 assists per game, this season. But after posting back-to-back 6 assists games and scoring at least 22 points in each one of them, it’s hard not to believe he won’t have a solid game against a questionable Wizard defense. He’s also 19-for-19 in free-throws, in the past three games
- Khris Middleton ($5,800)
Middleton has now scored at least 21 points in four straight games, and has hit the 20-point mark 27 times in 2015-16. The fourth-year wing is averaging career highs in points, assists, and threes.
- Dwayne Wade ($5,800)
Wade scored 24.6 points per game in the last 6 contest. He will continue to be a phenomenal fantasy option, as long as you don’t mind his old age.
- LeBron James ($7,300)
Last Sunday, the Wizard took advantage of a LeBron-less Cavaliers team, winning 113 to 99. It will be a different story on Friday night with James in the lineup, especially after a three days’ rest. He
- Giannis Antetokounmpo ($6,200)
Antetokounmpo has averaged 7.8 assists in the Bucks’ past five games, with coach and former point guard Jason Kidd giving the 21-year-old much of the ballhandling duties. Still, he remains a scoring threat and a force on the boards, averaging 17.9 points and 11.3 rebounds in his last eight.
- Aaron Gordon ($4,800)
Gordon has been a consistent two-category (rebounds & points) source of production, and he doesn’t appear to be in danger of losing minutes to teammate Ersan Ilyasova.
- Nikola Vucevic ($6,300)
While his defensive limitations have been well-documented, Vucevic’s offensive prowess can’t be denied. Vucevic is now averaging 23.3 points over his last six games, while shooting over 50 percent from the field in that span. Vucevic should be a prime DFS target on Friday, when he’ll take on the defensively-challenged Suns.
- Jabari Parker ($5,000)
In 2014, Parker was pegged as a likely fantasy/reality Rookie of the Year. Injuries delayed Parker’s full arrival…by a season and a half. He may not have won Rookie of the Year, but Parker is making a staggering late push for Most Improved Player.
- Mario Hezonja ($3,200)
“Super Mario” enjoyed his finest career performance in Wednesday’s victory, hitting multiple three’s for just the second time since Feb. 10. Receiving limited minutes, Hezonja has posted a pedestrian 33.6 percentage from beyond the arc this season.
