DFS NBA Picks
Another Saturday, another special edition of our DFS NBA picks for you to feast your eyes on.
While there were 10 games on the schedule today, n As always there are your big ticket items, and value picks. You always want to avoid being so strapped for cash that you’re ready to roll the dice on just about anyone to fill a slot on your roster. That’s why value picks and managing your cap are so crucial when assembling your daily fantasy sports team.
PG Russell Westbrook $10600 – While Westbrook always seems like a must-play, tonight’s pay-off might be extremely generous. The Spurs might be entering the game without superstar Kawhi Leonard, but I still expect this to be a competitive game until the very end. The Thunder are playing quite well of late, so a big effort minus the opposition’s star player equal a huge game for Westbrook.
PG Tyus Jones $3500 – Jones has scored 20+ fantasy points in 2 of his last 5 games, while scoring 14.5, -1, and 10.4 in between respectively. While he virtually never rebounds, Jones has piled up 11 assists in his last 2 games combined. Through March, Jones has averaged 4.5 points,and 3.3 assists in 17 minutes per game. If you need an option from the discount bin, Jones may be the man you should target.
SF Gordon Hayward $6800 – Facing the T-Wolves, Hayward has an opportunity to put forth a great fantasy night. Minnesota plays an up-and-down style of play, leaving many scoring opportunities to skilled players on opposing teams. Neither Zach Lavine nor Andrew Wiggins are exactly shutdown defenders, and the T-Wolves allow approximately 6% more points than the league average to small forwards. Hayward can be inconsistent, so the matchup makes him a much more desirable product tonight.
