Saturday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Daily Fantasy schedule for Saturday has five games available. Here’s our DFS picks for tonight’s action.
*Be sure to check your lineup before the start of the 7PM ET games. There have been some guys pulled due to rest lately that we can’t plan for.
Point Guard – Warriors’ Quinn Cook (vs. New Orleans, 8:30PM ET) $5,700
Cook has been getting big minutes in place of the injured Stephen Curry and been producing consistently around 25-35 fantasy points each game. Tonight he gets to face the Pelicans, who have struggled to stop opposing point guards. The minutes and the matchup should allow Cook to push for 40 fantasy points.
Shooting Guard – Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday (at Golden State, 8:30PM ET) $7,900
Holiday has performed well against the Warriors this season. He had 34 points, six rebounds and four assists back on Dec. 4 and 24 points with six rebounds and six assists back on Nov. 25. Given the injuries to the Warriors, Holiday should be able to get his shots in bulk tonight.
Small Forward – Bucks’ Jabari Parker (at New York, 7:30PM ET) $5,600
Parker is getting big minutes lately, playing in over 30 minutes in three straight. His shooting hasn’t been great, but he did put up 58 fantasy points against the Nuggets on Sunday. He took 21 shots against the Nets but made just six shots. Against the Knicks, he should get similar shot attempts. Now it is just up to him to make them.
Power Forward – Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge (vs. Portland, 9PM ET) $9,300
Aldridge has put up at least 45 fantasy points in four straight games, including two over 50 fantasy points. Tonight he faces the Blazers in a game that the Spurs need to win to improve their playoff seeding. Aldridge is averaging 26 points and 11 rebounds against the Blazers this season.
Center – Knicks’ Kyle O’Quinn (vs. Milwaukee, 7:30PM ET) $5,900
O’Quinn scored 44 fantasy points last night against the Heat in just 22 minutes. He has put up back-to-back double doubles and should continue to produce tonight with Kanter out for the Knicks. Playing just 22 minutes on Friday shouldn’t keep him from playing more tonight. He has been productive when on the floor and worth the play with such a cheap price.
