The daily fantasy action continues on FanDuel on Tuesday Night with a six game slate on tap. That slate includes a top tier matchup of two of the best point guards in the NBA as John Wall will lead his Washington Wizards out to the West Coast to take on Stephen Curry and a Golden State Warriors team that has yet to lose at home this season.
The fantasy options don’t end there, as James Harden will lead his Houston Rockets into Cleveland to take on a Cavaliers team that will be without LeBron James. Meanwhile in Detroit the Pistons will look to slow down the fast pace offense of the Oklahoma City Thunder that are led by Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
As we start to look at these matchups all six look like solid NBA contests to build our NBA FanDuel lineup around. Based on the over/under lines that are currently slated for each of these contests we can all expect a ton of scoring to take place on the hardwood on Tuesday March 29th, 2016. The lowest of the over/under totals is set at 203 as the Chicago Bulls are set to take on the Indiana Pacers.
On the high side the Wizards/Warriors contest is set to be the highest of the games at 226.5 combined points. These high scoring predictions allow for fantasy owners to find a solid list of FanDuel Bargains and Sleepers to build a potential winning lineup.
For us one of those FanDuel Bargains is J.R. Smith for a Cavaliers team that will need someone to pickup the slack from not having King James in the lineup. The one Fantasy Sleeper we like on Tuesday Night is Andrew Nicholson for the Orlando Magic. Nicholson has posted back to back games with over 20 fantasy points and that should continue as the Magic continue to deal with injuries to a few of their big men.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Tuesday March 29th, 2016.
PG – Shane Larkin ($3,700): Larkin is a deep fantasy sleeper for us on Tuesday Night. The Brooklyn Nets guard has ran off three straight 24 plus fantasy performances. Another other is to move around a few options to allow us to team up Wall with Russell Westbrook.
PG – Russell Westbrook ($10,600): We could have easily gone with John Wall or Stephen Curry but we ended up going with Westbrook. The Thunders point guard is coming off his fourth 50 plus fantasy performance over the teams last ten games.
SG – J.R. Smith ($4,300): We are looking at Smith to be the teams answer to trying to keep up a potential scoring battle with James Harden and the Houston Rockets. While Smith is a gamble based on his previous fantasy output but we love the fact he has posted over 30 minutes in three straight games.
SG – James Harden ($11,000): Now with or without James in the lineup we expect Harden to look to carry his Rockets team. Entering this contest the Rockets currently have a slight lead over the Dallas Mavericks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
SF – Paul George ($8,700): Despite his ups and downs for fantasy owners this season we like the Indiana Pacers small forward high reward potential. George is coming off a 42.7 fantasy performance on Sunday for his fantasy owners.
SF – Otto Porter ($5,500): Looking at the possible high scoring potential for this contest makes Porter a solid option. Porter has posted over 20 fantasy points in eight of his last ten games including three of those contests with at least 33 fantasy points.
PF – Andrew Nicholson ($4,000): Nicholson has shown when he plays at least 20 minutes a game he can provide over 20 fantasy points. On Tuesday Night the high reward is worth the high risk as Nicholson will provide us with some solid salary cap relief.
PF – Kevin Love ($6,900): Not the typical fantasy stack you would imagine from the Cavaliers on most nights but with James out as well as the fact Love will get a shot at a Rockets team that is allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing power forwards makes it a great fantasy play. You could consider going with someone like Tristan Thompson if you elect to go more expensive at another position or if Love is a late scratch.
C – Al Jefferson ($4,900): We have a bunch of different options at the center position but couldn’t pass up Jefferson’s matchup. Jefferson will look to continue the success for opposing centers as he gets a shot at a Philadelphia 76ers team that is allowing the most fantasy points to opposing centers. One fantasy sleeper option is Dewayne Dedmond for the Orlando Magic.
