Sunday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Schedule for Sunday, March 4, 2018 features plenty of games but the Daily Fantasy situation is broken down into two units. Here’s some suggested NBA DFS plays for the night games.
Point Guard – Knicks’ Trey Burke (at Sacramento, 9PM ET) $5,300
Burke seems to be getting a commitment to playing time with the Knicks right now. He has logged at least 25 minutes in three of his last four and posted a combined 115.75 fantasy points over three games prior to a bit of a letdown on Friday night against the Clippers. Today he gets a chance to rebound in Sacramento, which is a poor defensive team. Given his cheap price, Burke is definitely one to consider.
Shooting Guard – Kings’ Bogdan Bogdanovic (vs. New York, 9PM ET) $6,300
In the same matchup, I like Bogdanovic as a cheap option for the Kings. He also has been logging big minutes, which were cut down last night, opening the door for a lot of floor time today. He has scored in double figures in five straight and also collects handfuls of rebounds, assists and steals. He is someone that should push for over 30 fantasy points with a cheap price.
Small Forward – Nets’ DeMarre Carroll (at L.A. Clippers, 9PM ET) $6,100
Caroll has been racking up the fantasy points lately, producing a total of 110 over his last three games. Carroll is becoming a focus in the offense, producing double-digit shot attempts in his last 10. He also attacks the glass and dishes out the rock. Carroll has had 12 assists over his last three games and 22 rebounds. The Clippers wont have the size to deal with Carroll as a forward, which should lead to him having a big night tonight.
Power Forward – Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (at Dallas, 7PM ET) $11,700
Davis is coming off a “disappointing” 49.75-point fantasy performance against the Spurs, but tonight’s matchup is too good to pass up. Davis faces a Dallas team that has really struggled with big men. He averages 31.5 points against them this year and he should easily be able to rack up the rebounds with no competition in the paint. Davis went without a block in the last game, but I think he picks up quite a few tonight to push his fantasy score in the 70+-point area.
Center – Kings’ Skal Labissiere (vs. New York, 9PM ET) $4,800
Willie Cauley-Stein is dealing with a back injury and is listed questionable for today’s game after sitting out last night. Monitor this situation. If WCS is out again, Labissiere is a great play tonight. He produced 12 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks in place of Stein last night against the Jazz. Should Stein be out again, Labissiere is set to fill in an produce in a big way again with a cheap tag.
