NBA DFS Advice for March 31, 2022

We have another five-game NBA DFS slate tonight, as we keep talking about the same few teams ravaged with injuries. We are going right back to the Los Angeles Lakers, where there is room for a lot of guys to step up with LeBron James sidelined. We are also getting back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they remain cheap with Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley out. We are going to another stars and scrubs build tonight, as there are some fantastic superstars to go after here.

Here’s Two Core Plays For DFS Basketball 3/31/22 (using DraftKings Values)

Point Guard   
Shooting GuardC. LeVert $5,900
Small Forward   
Power Forward   
CenterM. Brown $3,200

Caris LeVert was one of our core plays last night, as at this price point he has a ton of upside with all the injuries to the Cavaliers. He took on a huge role as we were expecting, and he was very productive with 46 FPTS. LeVert has gotten even cheaper for tonight’s game, so we are very happy getting back to him here. He played 38 minutes last game, and there are a ton of ways for LeVert to hit value with that much floor time.

Sticking with the Cleveland Cavaliers for our second core play here, we saw Moses Brown start last game with all the injuries. He looks fantastic here at only $3.200, as there is a ton of upside on Brown. If you were playing midseason DFS last year, you may Brown exploding in the starting unit for the Thunder. He won us some slates when he got the start last year, so we are all over him in this spot.

Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 3/31/22 (using DraftKings Values)

One guy we have been light on lately is Kyrie Irving, as a few hot shooting nights had brought his tag to an all-time high. Despite three underwhelming performances in a row, Irving is still all the way up at $10,700 for tonight. We have some great stars to spend up for tonight, so Irving is an easy fade for us.

Point Guard 

Russell Westbrook – ($8,600 DK) Westbrook has stepped into a new role this season as the laughingstock of the NBA, but his production over the past few weeks has been solid. Westbrook seems to be finding his groove on the court, and right now he is the only stud on the Lakers with LeBron James and Anthony Davis out. Westbrook is the guy we took for two straight months last year because of how big the gap between him and the second-best DFS producer in the league was, so we know he has all the upside in the world. 

Shooting Guard 

Malik Monk – ($5,500 DK) Getting to another Lakers guard here, Monk has taken on some massive usage in the two recent opportunities without James. He scored 32.75 and 42.5 FPTS respectively in those games while taking on a huge role. He has a ton of upside in this spot against the Jazz tonight, as his price is too low for what he has to do with James sidelined. 

Small Forward

Cade Cunningham – ($8,700 DK) Coming to the end of what has been an up-and-down season, Cunningham has really come into his stride as the star guard that many expected him to be. He has been showing some massive upside lately, and with Jerami Grant off the floor for Detroit he must take on a huge scoring role. Cunningham went over 48 FPTS last game, and his upside is even better than that.  

Power Forward

Stanley Johnson – ($3,800 DK) The Lakers started the Stanimal in James’ absence last time, and he was very productive in 35 minutes with 31.25 FPTS. If Johnson remains in the starting lineup here we are very happy to get back to him for value. Johnson is usually a low usage guy, but there are some shots for him in this spot with so few options in Laketown.  


Andre Drummond – ($6,000 DK) The Nets have been playing Drummond solid minutes lately, and we all know how incredible a per-minute DFS producer Drummond can be. He went for 35.25 FPTS last game and a whopping 52 FPTS in the game before that, as he has been absolutely dominating on the glass. Drummond has a ton of upside here, and the Bucks allow for some big games to opposing centers. 

General strategy  

We do not have a lot of questionable tags as of now, but we still have to keep track of the news just in case and for starting lineups. We are eager to see if the Lakers march out the same unit as last time, as Carmelo Anthony would be a massive priority if he slides into the starting five. Our number one team to get to for Cash games tonight is going to be the Cleveland Cavaliers, as guys like Brown and LeVert are very safe in the spots we are rostering them in tonight. For tournaments, we may look to get to different options from the Lakers, or some cheaper options from Atlanta who we expect to be less owned. Good luck tonight!
