NBA DFS: Targets for 3/1

Kirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports

We have an 11-game, NBA DFS slate to sift through to start off the new month.

Chris Paul (LAC vs. HOU)

FanDuel: $9,700 (PG)

DraftKings: $8,900 (PG)

Paul played an impressive game last time out against the Hornets, with 40 minutes and one rebound shy of a triple-double. This game against the Rockets, currently has the highest points total of the night at 232.5, and I really like Paul on both sites. Also, this game should be one of the, if not, highest paced games of the night. You have to at least consider Paul because of the potential of a few extra touches and opportunities to accumulate fantasy points.

DeMar DeRozan (TOR vs. WAS)

FanDuel: $10,200 (SG)

DraftKings: $9,300 (SG)

With Kyle Lowry out, DeRozan will be carrying the load for the Raptors. The Wizards are on a home-road, back-to-back. His rice on FD is hard to swallow, but he makes for a great play if you can fit him in. As you can see on nbawowy.com, DeRozan has an incredible usage rate of 42.2, with 1.31 FD points per minute, and 1.36 DK points per minute.

Evan Fournier (ORL vs. NYK)

FanDuel: $5,300 (SG)

DraftKings: $5,900 (SG)

With Aaron Gordon possibly missing this game, Fournier a more favorable play on FD because of salary. The Knicks will be without Willy Hernangomez, with Kristaps Porzingis expecting to play against the Magic. Gordon is priced better for FD, but could also make value on DK if he plays at least mid-20’s in minutes.

Khris Middleton (MIL vs. DEN)

FanDuel: $5,100 (SF)

DraftKings: $5,500 (SG/SF)

With Michael Beasley out for the next three games, and Middleton getting the night off in the last game, Middleton is a nice mid-priced option. He’s slowly seeing more minutes, and should make his value if he sees an increase tonight. The Nuggets are on a road, back-to-back. With them being one of the worst offensive teams, and the game total is the second highest on the slate with 224 points. Middleton is a more favorable play on FD.
