Tuesday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Tuesday, March 20 has seven games set to take place. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy picks for tonight’s action.
Point Guard – Rockets’ James Harden (at Portland, 10:30PM ET) $11,200
Harden has put up over 63 fantasy points in his last two games and should be pushed into a lot of minutes tonight as he faces a game Blazers team in Portland. Harden put up 48 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists in his first meeting with Portland this season, so clearly the matchup should lead to a big outing.
Shooting Guard – Mavericks’ Yogi Ferrell (at New Orleans, 8PM ET) $5,300
Ferrell is someone that should see a big boost in playing time due to injuries for Dallas. Dennis Smith Jr. is out, as is Wesley Matthews. J.J. Barea is also dealing with a ribs injury, so Ferrell is the go-to guy tonight. He is coming off 38.25 fantasy points against the Nets after posting a double-double. I think Ferrell can do the same tonight against the Pelicans.
Small Forward – Suns’ Josh Jackson (vs. Detroit, 10PM ET) $6,300
Jackson is riding a nice wave right now, posting 117.5 fantasy points over his last three games. Phoenix is having some injury issues as well, including top scorer Devin Booker. That leaves the door open for this Kansas rookie to become a bigger part of the offense once again. Tonight’s matchup with the Pistons is favorable, especially considering the Pistons are coming off a game at Sacramento last night.
Power Forward – Blazers’ Al-Farouq Aminu (vs. Houston, 10:30PM ET) $5,300
Aminu has been on a roll right now for a very cheap price. He has scored at least 30 fantasy points in three straight, including 42.5 against the Clippers on Sunday. Tonight he gets to go up against Houston, which will be a high-scoring game with a lot of chances for points and rebounds. Expect Aminu to continue to play well above his value.
Center – Jazz’ Rudy Gobert (vs. Atlanta, 9PM ET) $8,400
Gobert is on a very consistent run right now with eight of his last nine being over 42 fantasy points. He has had a double-double in all eight of those games and tonight features a great matchup against the Hawks. There is potential for a blowout and limited minutes, but I think Gobert will still put up big numbers even if his time is cut.
