The NBA schedule is slammed with an exciting slate of action for FanDuel owners to cash in on tonight. In all daily fantasy owners have a twelve game lineup to build from that includes some of the top fantasy options to build around.
As we start to look at the point guard position the top tier options include Stephen Curry, John Wall and Chris Paul. For us we could easily go with all three of these options but the Los Angeles Clippers point guard stands out as he will get a shot at facing off against the Golden State Warriors. The other option is to pair up both Curry and Paul since they will be facing off against each other.
Along with the three top fantasy options at the point guard positon the other top fantasy stars include DeMarcus Cousins for the Sacramento Kings, James Harden for the Houston Rockets, Giannis Antetokounmpo for the Milwaukee Bucks and LeBron James for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Now for us the heavy load of games tonight should provide us with a ton of FanDuel bargains and sleepers to build around. One of those bargains tonight is small forward P.J. Tucker for the Phoenix Suns as they welcome the Los Angeles Lakers to town. Entering this game the Lakers are allowing the second most fantasy points per game to opposing small forwards.
Another bargain is point guard Emmanuel Mudiay for the Denver Nuggets as they take on the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers have had their trouble going up against opposing point guards this season including getting scorched of late including giving up a triple double just a few nights ago to Wall.
Here is our NBA FanDuel for Wednesday March 23rd, 2016.
PG – Chris Paul ($9,900): We can’t pass up the opportunity to take Paul tonight against the Warriors. Paul has posted at least 40 fantasy points in seven of the teams last ten games.
PG – Shelvin Mack ($6,300): We could have easily gone with Wall or Curry but elected to free up some additional salary cap space. Mack has been brilliant of late posting at least 30 fantasy points in six straight games leading up to his matchup against the Houston Rockets.
SG – Garrett Temple ($3,700): Temple is an interesting case tonight at the shooting guard position. Now this move is more of a move to free up salary cap space but the Wizards guard has shown flashes including posting 30.2 fantasy points against the Bulls.
SG – Klay Thompson ($6,900): After electing to pass up on Curry tonight we had to go with at least one member of the Warriors. That is where Thompson comes into play tonight against the Clippers.
SF – P.J. Tucker ($4,600): Tucker is a solid fantasy barain tonight going up against a very bad Los Angeles Lakers team. Tucker has posted at least 20 fantasy points in three of the last four games.
SF – Andrew Wiggins ($6,900): Wiggins is a great option tonight going up against the Kings. Entering tonight Wiggins is coming off his second 40 point fantasy point performance over his last ten games as well as seventh game with at least 30 fantasy points over his last ten games.
PF – Gorgui Dieng ($6,400): Looking at the top fantasy options at the power forward position Dieng is one of those options. Dieng has a very favorable matchup against a Kings team that is allowing the most fantasy points a game to opposing power forwards.
PF – Ed Davis ($4,000): Davis is our Fantasy Sleeper of the Night as he looks to lead the Portland Trailblazers over the Dallas Mavericks. While Davis is a gamble he should have an opportunity to post some fantasy numbers against a Mavericks defense that ranks fourth in fantasy points allowed to opposing power forwards.
C – DeMarcus Cousins ($11,000): In the end we could not pass up on Cousins tonight against the Timberwolves. Cousins has not posted less than 44 fantasy points in nine of the last ten games.
