Saturday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Schedule for Friday, March 16 has six games taking place. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy suggestions based on today’s slate of contests.
Point Guard – Pacers’ Darren Collison (at Washington, 7PM ET) $4,800
Collison is coming off his best showing yet since returning from injury. He had 22 points with four assists in 28 minutes against the Pacers. His minutes continue to climb with each game and he is needed as an offensive option with the team struggling to find scoring right now. Collison is very cheap and almost certain to out-perform his low value.
Shooting Guard – Warriors’ Nick Young (at Phoenix, 10PM ET) $4,500
The Warriors are overloaded with injuries right now and someone has to fill in when it comes to scoring. I think Young is that man. He has scored 34 points over their last two games and He will continue to be a top scoring option tonight against the horrible Suns’ defense. Quinn Cook was the star on Friday, but he was 10 of 13 shooting. I can’t see that happening again tonight. Young has 28 shot attempts over these last two games and he should get at least 15 shots tonight.
Small Forward – Jazz’ Joe Ingles (vs. Sacramento, 9PM ET) $6,300
Joe Ingles is rolling right now, scoring at least 29.5 fantasy points in six straight games. That includes a peak of 47.75 points against Orlando at home last week. Ingles has been a consistent scoring option for Utah right now while also picking up rebounds and assists along the way. He is a near lock to get 30+ minutes of action and has a nice matchup against the Kings tonight. Look for Ingles to continue his hot streak.
Power Forward – Warriors’ Draymond Green (at Phoenix, 10PM ET) $8,800
Again, with all the Golden State injuries, Green is someone the team has to heavily rely on. He put up 50 fantasy points on Friday night against the Kings thanks to 14 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks. While Green is never likely to put up 20 points, he is going to rack up plenty of secondary stats. Green will take a lot of pride in trying to lead Golden State through this injury battle and I think he pushes for 50 fantasy points again tonight.
Center – Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (vs. Houston, 7PM ET) $11,500
Davis is coming off a mediocre showing against the Spurs on Thursday, posting only 44 fantasy points. I think he bounces back tonight with 65+ points against the Rockets in a game that will produce a lot of points and a lot of shots. It’s hard to imagine Davis won’t put up a lot of points and pull down plenty of rebounds. He had 27 points with 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks in his first meeting with the Rockets this season.
