Friday’s NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Friday, March 16 has six games taking place. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy suggestions based on today’s slate of contests.
Point Guard – Nets’ DeAngelo Russell (at Philadelphia, 7PM ET) $6,500
Russell has been heating up over his last two games, shooting 11 of 20 from the arc. He has produced at least 37 fantasy points in three of his last four games, including 37.5 against the 76ers earlier this week. Tonight he gets Philly again, but the 76ers are wrapping up a back-to-back, which should leave them a step slow on an already bad defense.
Shooting Guard – Thunder’s Corey Brewer (vs. L.A. Clippers, 8PM ET) $4,400
Brewer seems to have settled into this position for OKC, as he has logged over 30 minutes in three straight games, which is seeing his fantasy production grow. Brewer has scored at least 25 fantasy points in three of his last four games. Tonight he gets to go up against a poor defensive team in the Clippers, which should leave him the benefit to some easy baskets as they try and stop Westbrook and George. For a very cheap price, Brewer should be good for another 25+ points.
Small Forward – Clippers’ Tobias Harris (at Oklahoma City, 8PM ET) $7,300
Harris has been one of the best players in fantasy since being traded to the Clippers and he has scored at least 37 fantasy points in five of his last six. Four of those have been over 40 points. I like Harris to continue his production tonight against the Thunder in a game where the Clippers will need scoring. Nobody has been able to score for Los Angeles like Harris has and he also can rebound while picking up a few assists along the way.
Power Forward – Warriors’ Draymond Green (vs. Sacramento, 10:30PM ET) $8,600
After sitting out their last game, Green returns for the Warriors tonight against the Kings and I think he is going to have a big game. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry remain out while Kevin Durant is questionable with a rib injury. Green is going to have to wear many hats tonight, which he always does. He has a favorable matchup against a poor Sacramento team. I think Green can push for a triple-double and get near 50 fantasy points.
Center – Magic’s Nikola Vucevic (vs. Boston, 7PM ET) $8,400
Vucevic has a great matchup against the Celtics, a team that has struggled with big men. He is coming off a 22-point, 9-rebound and 9-assist performance against the Bucks earlier this week. I expect him to dominate the paint tonight as well against the Celtics. Orlando continues to deal with injury issues to its frontcourt, which puts more minutes on Vucevic, who has looked great since returning from injury.
