Thursday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Thursday, March 29, 2018 features just five games. Here’s some suggested NBA Daily Fantasy picks for tonight’s action.
Point Guard – Pistons’ Reggie Jackson (vs. Washington, 7PM ET) $4,800
Jackson is seeing his minutes increased with each game as he comes back from his long injury. He logged 28 minutes against the Lakers earlier this week and put up 31.25 fantasy points. I would expect him to flirt with 30 minutes of action tonight and produce well over value for his cheap tag.
Shooting Guard – Heat’s Dwyane Wade (vs. Chicago, 7:30PM ET) $5,400
Wade hasn’t always been the safest play, but he has produced 61 fantasy points over his last two games and tonight he goes up against the Bulls, his hometown team. It’s also a team he didn’t have the best year with last season. Given he went just 17 minutes on Tuesday night, I would expect D-Wade to log more minutes than average and contend for another 30+ fantasy points.
Small Forward – Warriors’ Kevin Durant (vs. Milwaukee, 10:30PM ET) $10,800
Durant returns from his rib injury tonight and the Warriors need him with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson both out still. Durant should be the offense against the Bucks tonight and he produced over 60 fantasy points in three of his last four games before the injury. I would expect Durant to have a big game tonight and be the leading scorer in all of fantasy.
Power Forward – Bulls’ Lauri Markkanen (at Miami, 7:30PM ET) $5,400
Markkanen has bounced around between good and bad lately, but he is coming off a 30.5-fantasy performance against the Rockets. With the Bulls in tank mode, the young Markkanen is getting more opportunities. He already has had strong performances against the Heat this season and his price tag is very cheap.
Center – Pistons’ Blake Griffin (vs. Washington, 7PM ET) $8,800
Griffin has struggled his last two games. He dealt with foul trouble against the Lakers and the Pistons dominated the Bulls in the other. Before that he had put up over 50 fantasy points in three straight. Against a Wizards team that can go small and run the floor, I like Griffin to get back on track tonight. He is a consistent double-double threat that also has triple-double potential in high-scoring games.
