The big question on Thursday is what combination of NBA stars will deliver us some cash tonight. That question requires a wide variety of things to go right including finding the perfect Fantasy Sleepers to pair up with at least one of the top fantasy options filled with a nice mix of talent from around the NBA.
For us all three of those things have to come together for us to take home some cash tonight. Starting with one of the top fantasy options has turned us to John Wall for the Washington Wizards against the Philadelphia 76ers. Wall was one of our top options for Wednesday Night and he rewarded us with a 59 point fantasy performance.
Yesterday Wall faced off a Chicago Bulls team that ranked third in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards. Tonight Wall gets a shot at a 76ers team that ranks fifth in the NBA in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards. Along with that Wall posted 58.3 fantasy points the last time these two teams faced off back on February 29th.
While Wall might be the best of the top fantasy option tonight of all the questions but who can we team him up with? One of those fantasy sleeper options we would consider is Donald Sloan for the Brooklyn Nets against he Chicago Bulls. Just one day ago point guard John Wall took advantage of the Bulls struggles against opposing point guards in route to 29 points, ten rebounds and 12 assists.
Here is our entire NBA FanDuel lineup for Thursday March 18th, 2016.
PG – John Wall ($9,400): Wall is the top option at the point guard position while we also considered going with Kemba Walker. In the end it was nearly impossible not to build our FanDuel lineup around Wall tonight.
PG – Donald Sloan ($4,400): While we elected to go with Sloan we could have easily gone with Walker with this pick while finding a few of the other bargains at the other position. In the end we like the fantasy potential of Sloan against the Bulls tonight.
SG – Rodney Hood ($5,400): Looking at a few of the top fantasy options at the shooting guard position landed us with Hood. The Utah Jazz shooting guard gets a chance at a Phoenix Suns team that ranks number one in fantasy points allowed to opposing shooting guards.
SG – Bradley Beal ($5,200): We had two options here either go with Beal or Jimmy Butler. While Butler is a solid option the end result would have been to replace Giannis Antetokounmpo with a much cheaper fantasy option at the small forward position. If Beal is a late scratch we suggest going with Butler while taking Joe Johnson at the small forward position.
SF – Nicolas Batum ($7,500): Were going to stick with the Charlotte Hornets small forward tonight against the Miami Heat. Batum has posted at least 38 fantasy points in four straight games including 46.9 fantasy points last night.
SF – Giannis Antetokounmpo ($10,200): How can we not go with Antetokounmpo tonight with Wall? The Milwaukee Bucks small forward has posted at least 50 fantasy points in five of the teams last ten games including Monday Night.
PF – Derrick Favors ($7,600): We love the Utah Jazz/Phoenix Suns matchup for tonight to build our FanDuel lineup around. Favors has posted at least 30 fantasy points in five of his last ten games.
PF – Patrick Patterson ($4,000): Patterson is another solid fantasy sleeper option tonight for the Raptors. The Raptors power forward has posted at least 20 fantasy points in five of his last six games.
C – Marcin Gortat ($6,200): We suggest monitoring the NBA lineups as they come out as Gortant managed to post only 18 minutes last night. If Gortat is a go tonight we suggest using him against a 76ers team that has had their issues against opposing centers this season. Entering this game the 76ers are allowing the most fantasy points in the NBA to opposing centers.
