DFS NBA Picks
Another edition of DFS NBA Picks is upon us. With one 3pm start you had to get your rosters in early, unless you were taking part in only an Evening Game contest.
Tonight is an extra special edition as Steph Curry and his Golden State Warriors face off against the OKC Thunder. Let’s see which one of those star ballers made my DFS NBA picks.
- My Roster
The Superstars: Steph Curry, James Harden and Russ Westbrook. I didn’t select Curry in my last lineup as my lead superstar and it came back to haunt me. Can’t make the same mistake twice with the league MVP, “Steph! You’re in!”. Harden has had a really nice fantasy month. I’m banking on 35+ fantasy points. Russell Westbrook has been dynamite the last five games averaging 24.2 points, 11.4 assists, 7.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.2 blocks in 31 minutes played per game.
Star Power: Giannis Antekounmpo is the lone above-average regular in this lineup. He’s been on fire and is fun to watch dominate inside the paint. If he tops 30 fantasy points it will be a good day.
Role Players: Anderson Varejao, PJ Hairston and Tyson Chandler are all pretty cheap and allowed me to afford my big three (Curry, Harden, Westbrook). Varejao is seeing an increase in minutes since his deadline day trade, Hairston has 20 and 18 points in his last two contests so at $3200 I had to snatch him up. Tyson Chandler has multiple 20+ fantasy point games this month, so once again at that price I had to take a chance on such value.
X-Factor: Not to be confused with eachother, Dieng and Deng are my X-Factors. Dieng has been a whole new player since the end of January, almost putting up 25 fantasy points on a nightly basis, while veteran Luol Deng has seen a revival since stepping in for all the Heat injuries.
The plan is for the superstars to have super games, while my support players all perform to at least their average. One exceptional performance combined with that should propel you to top spot in your daily fantasy basketball contest.
