NBA DFS Playbook – 3/28

Kevin Durant

Welcome back the the NBA DFS playbook! After a small break, I am back in full force to close the NBA DFS season. Between vacation and pneumonia, it’s been an interesting two weeks. Tonight’s a great night to get back into the swing of things with 10 games slated to play. All of the prices are based off of DraftKings. Good luck and let’s close out thise season strong these last couple weeks.

 

Point Guard

Darren Collison ($5,000)

No Rajon Rondo tonight means tons of minutes for Collison. In the whole month of March, he’s only had three games of less than 20 fantasy points. I think that’s an easy baseline of what he can do tonight, with 40 points being around his ceiling.

Damian Lillard ($9,500)

It basically comes down to whether to go Russell Westbrook or not tonight. I have no issues using him tonight, I just like Lillard more at a cheaper price tag. Sacramento don’t play much defense and neither does Portland, so saying that tonight will be a shootout will be an understatement.

 

Shooting Guard

C.J. McCollum ($7,200)

McCollum is part of my mini-stack for the Kings/Trail Blazers game tonight. The shooting guard position is a little thin tonight so McCollum is a great mid-range guy that I’m using across the board. He’s hit over 40 fantasy points in four of his past six games. Much like Lillard, I like his upside against a thin Kings backcourt.

Devin Booker ($6,500)

It was a tough call between Booker and Zack LaVine tonight, but Booker is my guy tonight. He’s a great cheap option to plug in but still has the upside for cash games tonight. He’s been hitting 5x value like crazy, granted it’s because the Suns are not a good team. He’s got the green light to make it rain and that should continue tonight against the Timberwolves.

 

Small Forward

Kevin Durant ($10,000)

Much like most nights, the three spot is the toughest to fill. I usually just plug in the best player I can fit in and tonight that is Durant. The good news is that he’s playing the Raptors, so it’s going to be a playoff atmosphere. He’s by far and away the most expensive guy at the position but he’s the safest option for cash games.

Luol Deng ($5,800)

If you can’t fit in Durant, Deng is the play tonight. He’s cheap and he has been filling the stat sheet when getting the minutes for the Heat. If you take out his two worst games over his past nine, he’s averaging around 40 fantasy points a game. That’s the upside you love to see in your GPP lineups.

 

Power Forward

Ed Davis ($4,200)

Davis has been crushing it lately and has a great chance to continue that tonight against a Boogieless Sacramento team. He’s hit at least 6x value in six straight games. As long as he continues to get the minutes, keep plugging him in your DFS lineups.

Kristaps Porzingis ($6,100)

Porzingis has been en fuego since his disappointing game mid March. He’s been averaging around 20 points and 8 rebounds and tonight he gets a disappointing Pelicans frontcourt that is without Anthony Davis. I like Ed Davis more tonight, but I have no problems using Porzingis if you can afford to pay up for him.

 

Center

Willie Cauley-Stein ($3,700)

No DeMarcus Cousins tonight makes WCS an automatic plug and play. What more else do I need to say? He’s a cheap option that will get a ton of minutes. He’ll be highly owned but the price is too good to pass up.
