Thursday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Thursday, March 22 has six games taking place. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy picks for Thursday’s action.
Point Guard – Hawks’ Dennis Schroder (at Sacramento, 10PM ET) $6,500
Schroder plays for a hopeless Atlanta team, but it isn’t keeping him from being productive in fantasy. He has posted at least 32 fantasy points in three of his last four, including 58.25 against the Jazz on Tuesday night. Tonight Schroder gets to face a Sacramento team that has struggled against opposing guards.
Shooting Guard – Hornets’ Jeremy Lamb (vs. Memphis, 7PM ET) $5,700
Lamb has put up 30 fantasy points in his last two games as he gets more minutes and opportunities with Nic Batum injured. Batum will be out again and Lamb has a matchup against a Memphis team that doesn’t have much to play for. Look for him to continue to put up big numbers tonight and do so with a very cheap price tag.
Small Forward – Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma (at New Orleans, 8PM ET) $6,300
Kuzma continues to shine in his rookie season. He has put up at least 31 fantasy points in seven of his last nine games. That includes 50.75 points against the Nuggets last week. Tonight the Lakers on the road, but get to play the Pelicans on the end of three games in three days. That should allow Kuzma to tear apart a tired New Orleans’ defense.
Power Forward – Pistons’ Blake Griffin (at Houston, 8PM ET) $8,600
Instead of going with Anthony Davis or James Harden tonight, picking Griffin can allow you to spend a little more in other areas. Griffin has scored at least 50 fantasy points in three of his last four games and has a great matchup with the Rockets tonight. With a lot of points and possessions, Griffin should be able to put up big numbers. He had 29 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists in his lone game against Houston this season.
Center – Hornets’ Willy Hernangomez (vs. Memphis, 7PM ET) $3,400
Dwight Howard is coming off a monster 30-30 game last night, but he also picked up his 16th technical foul, so he should have to sit out tonight’s game. Cody Zeller is also hurt with a knee injury, so that opens the door for Hernangomez to get a big boost in playing time and production. With such a low tag, you have to roll the dice here. Should Howard get the technical foul rescinded before the game, look for another option.
