Saturday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Saturday, March 24 features five late games. Who are the best options for the NBA Daily Fantasy tonight? Here’s our picks.
Point Guard – Mavericks’ Dennis Smith Jr. (vs. Charlotte, 8:30PM ET) $5,900
After missing some time with an ankle injury, Smith Jr. is back tonight for Dallas and has a cheap price tag against the Hornets. Prior to the injury, Smith Jr. had scored 29.5 fantasy points in his last three games. The rookie is logging big minutes when active, so I expect a productive performance tonight.
Shooting Guard – Hornets’ Jeremy Lamb (at Dallas, 8:30PM ET) $6,300
Another hot fantasy option, Lamb is someone I would suggest playing again. While his price is rising, he still has 30+ fantasy points in his last three games. He has scored in double figures in his last three as well and is grabbing handfuls of rebounds and assists. Over this three game span, Lamb is averaging around 30 minutes. Against Dallas, there is definitely potential for another solid outing.
Small Forward – Suns’ Josh Jackson (at Orlando, 7PM ET) $7,000
With Devin Booker expected to be out again tonight, Jackson should continue his recent fantasy surge. He has put up at least 31 fantasy points in his last three games. He would have done more at Cleveland last night if not for foul trouble. The rookie is getting his chance to shine right now and continue to ride his momentum train against a poor Orlando squad.
Power Forward – Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma (at Memphis, 8PM ET) $6,600
Yes, another rookie. Kuzma has been logging big minutes for the Lakers lately and has scored at least 31 fantasy points in seven of his last 10 games. Tonight he gets a chance against a Memphis team that just gave up 140 points earlier this week and is mailing it in. Look for Kuzma to have another big game.
Center – Pistons’ Blake Griffin (vs. Chicago, 7PM ET) $9,500
The Pistons may not be playing well as a team, but Griffin is. He has scored at least 50 fantasy points in three straight and four of his last five. He also has at least 45 fantasy points in eight of his last 10. Griffin is playing against the Bulls tonight, a team that is in full tank mode. That should leave the door open for him to rack up big points again. He had 25 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists in his last meeting with the Bulls.
