The NBA action is still the center of attention on FanDuel as daily fantasy owners look to cash in on Tuesday Night. In all 12 NBA teams are in action as the 2015-16 NBA schedule delivers a solid six game slate for all of us to build around.
Now that being said the list of top tier fantasy options available is slim with a few solid options. One of those options is a must start and that fantasy star is Stephen Curry. Curry has not only put together an MVP resume for the NBA regular season but for his fantasy owners as well.
His latest performance came this past Saturday as he drilled a record tying 12 three pointers with the last one coming at the buzzer to give the Golden State Warriors the win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. That performance landed him another big time fantasy performance as he finished with 59.6 marking the four straight game he has posted over 57 fantasy points.
While Curry is almost a guarantee for nearly every fantasy owner tomorrow night we do suggest monitoring the NBA lineups on Tuesday as he has been listed as questionable. This comes after Curry rolled his ankle in the win on Saturday in the third quarter and while he finished the game head coach Steve Kerr could play it safe against the Atlanta Hawks.
Along with Curry the other top fantasy options include Pau Gasol for the Chiacago Bulls, Damian Lillard for the Portland Trailblazers and Carmelo Anthony for the New York Knicks. One player who will not be returning to the floor on Tuesday Night is Jimmy Butler who is expected to miss his tenth straight game.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Tuesday March 1st, 2016.
PG – Stephen Curry ($11,200): While we suggest monitoring the lineups throughout the day and evening we believe Curry will be just fine on Tuesday Night. That being said Curry is a 100% lock for us as well as probably every other fantasy owner building a lineup on Tuesday. If your looking for a gamble option you could go cheap here and look to stay away from a player that will be used in near 50% of all leagues.
PG – Kemba Walker ($8,200): One option was to go cheap here at the second point guard with someone like Elfrid Payton. In the end Walker has a very favorable matchup against the Phoenix Suns in a game we expect some solid scoring in.
SG – Wesley Matthews ($4,300): We continue to look for FanDuel bargains on a night in and night out basis. That continues on Tuesday with Matthews who has posted at least 22 fantasy points in four straight games while topping the 20 point mark in five of the teams last six games.
SG – Kobe Bryant ($6,300): As we have stated a few times we strongly recommend monitoring the lineup situation before slating Bryant into your fantasy one on Tuesday. While we have not seen the Bryant of a few seasons ago we have seen some solid performances of late adding that with a few extra days to rest and we like his chances.
SF – P.J. Tucker ($4,800): Looking to ride a hot hand turned us to the Phoenix Suns small forward. While Tucker has consistently been up and down for fantasy owners this season his upside as we saw yesterday with his 42.7 fantasy performance makes him a solid option on Tuesday Night.
SF – Carmelo Anthony ($8,900): Without a lot of top tier fantasy threats on the court on Tuesday night, Anthony is basically a default option for us. When we dug deep at the small forward position we were not sold on on many of the cheaper options while afraid to leave a ton of salary in our bank. One option is to go cheaper here and upgrade at one of the slots we selected under the $5k mark.
PF – David Lee ($4,500): Lee is a perfect fantasy bargain for us on Tuesday Night sitting at just $4,500. The newly acquired Dallas Maverick has posted at least 29 fantasy points in back to back games while seeing over 20 minutes in each of those contests.
PF – Aaron Gordon ($6,500): The Orlando Magic power forward has been pretty consistent of late for his fantasy owners. While he has only posted one 40 plus fantasy performance over his last ten outings he has ran off at least 30 in nine straight.
C – Alex Len ($5,200): Len is our option at the center position but we strongly recommend monitoring the Suns lineup on Tuesday. The second year star is coming off a 46.7 point fantasy performance in the teams last game but has seen his minute totals bounce around over his last ten games. Our other option we like at the center position is Nikola Vucevic for the Orlando Magic.
