Wednesday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Wednesday, March 7, 2018 features a total of seven games. What are some high-value plays for your NBA Daily Fantasy lineup tonight?
Point Guard – Lakers’ Isaiah Thomas (vs. Orlando, 10:30PM ET) $6,000
Thomas continues to see his opportunities increase for this Lakers’ offense. He has taken 57 shot attempts over his last three games while posting right near 30 minutes per game. His shooting hasn’t been great, but I expect that will continue to improve as he continues to see more action. Tonight Thomas is up against a terrible Orlando defense that is giving up nearly 110 points per game, so that should lead to a lot of offense. That is what Thomas likes. His cheap price tag should lead to some good value tonight.
Shooting Guard – Bucks’ Eric Bledsoe (vs. Houston, 8PM ET) $7,500
With three straight games of 40 fantasy points or more, Bledsoe’s price tag is up a little bit today, but he should continue to pour in the points against a Houston team coming off a big game at Oklahoma City last night. The Rockets will have tired legs but certainly score a lot, leading to a shootout in Milwaukee. Bledsoe is logging big minutes right now and is adding handfuls of assists and rebounds to go with his scoring output.
Small Forward – Grizzlies’ JaMychal Green (at Chicago, 8PM ET) $6,800
The Grizzlies are riddled with injuries and that is making Green a valuable option in DFS. He has put up over 44 fantasy points in his last two games and he has recorded a double-double in six straight. Tonight Green goes up against a young Chicago team that is mailing it in for the rest of the season, so he can really take over on the glass if he wants to continue to put up his big numbers. Green will also have to continue to be a scoring option for Memphis with Marc Gasol slowing down.
Power Forward – Pistons’ Blake Griffin (vs. Toronto, 8PM ET) $7,900
Griffin has embraced his role as the new leader of the Pistons and is finding ways to produce, even if it isn’t always scoring. He was held to 12 points at Orlando on March 2, but managed 10 rebounds and 9 assists. He has followed that up with 31 points and 6 assists and then 25 points and 8 rebounds in his next two games. Griffin returns home today to take on the Raptors, who are coming off a game last night and now hitting the road for the second of a back-to-back. That should allow Griffin to take advantage of a tired Serge Ibaka and dominate the stat box.
Center – Lakers’ Julius Randle (vs. Orlando, 10:30PMET) $7,800
Like IT, Randle is seeing himself become a focal point for the Lakers right now. He has produced at least 37 fantasy points in seven straight games with four over 40. He has a favorable matchup tonight at home against the Magic, a team not known for being physical in the paint. Randle should get plenty of looks on offense and have his fourth straight game with at least 20 points. He can also crash the glass and push for a double-double.
