We have an interesting seven game NBA slate to attack tonight. There is a lot of value available, but it is not as obvious and easy to handle as in some other slates. We have a few phenomenal plays in the $4,000-$6,000 range, so as a result we have another pretty balanced lineup. Our midrange lineup went for over 325 FPTS last night and we are looking for a similar scoring breakdown here. A key to tonight’s slate will be the Oklahoma City Thunder, who have a ton of injuries once again. The Thunder have been a part of the morning weekend slates there past two games, but tonight the value will be available on the main slate.
Here’s a balanced lineup For DFS Basketball 3/16/21 (using DraftKings Values)
|Point Guard||T. Satoransky||$3,600|
|Shooting Guard||I. Quickley||$5,800|
|Power Forward||K. Martin Jr.||$5,300|
Tomas Satoransky got the start for the Bulls last game and had a great game. Satoransky likely earned himself the start here again tonight with his strong play. Satoransky played 25 minutes last game and scored over 33 FPTS. Priced at only $3,600, Satoransky will crush value if he does anything close to that tonight. Satoransky is a solid fantasy producer and has barely been priced up for getting significant minutes. If Satoransky remains in the starting lineup, we probably will not have many chances to roster him this cheap. However, I might look somewhere else on the off chance Satoransky is sent back to the bench.
The Knicks are going to be gutted again tonight and we love going back to Immanuel Quickley. Quickley has been priced up to $5,800, which is still too cheap for his role as a starter. Quickley played 34 minutes and shot the ball 19 times last game, he could break the slate with that kind of usage. Coach Thibodeau is notorious for playing his favorite players massive minutes, and Quickley will be his go to point guard again tonight.
The Houston Rockets are running a shortened rotation and a few guys have been priced up. However,, Kenyon Martin Jr. is still only $5,300 despite having another great performance. Martin scored over 36 FPTS in both of his last two outings, and 30 FPTS in the one before that. Martin should be much more expensive and will likely get a huge price jump with one more strong game. The Rockets have a great matchup against the Hawks tonight and it should be a fast-paced game. The Minutes have been great for Martin lately and he should be good for some solid value tonight.
Rudy Gobert has been on an absolute tear lately, scoring 74 FPTS last game. Gobert has a solid matchup with the Celtics tonight, who run undisciplined centers. This slate has a lot more value towards the bottom, so the key to winning will be picking the right studs. Gobert has been rebounding and blocking shots at phenomenal rates and could have another big game against Boston. Another monster performance from Gobert is the type of play we are chasing for big wins tonight.
Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• Our core pay up option tonight
• Value plays from the Oklahoma City Thunder
• Different options to prepare for breaking news
Aleksej Pokusevski – SF (4,400 DK) Pokusevski was sent down to the G-league for a couple months, however it looks like he has really developed in that time. The Thunder will be missing multiple key players tonight and we should continue to see massive minutes from Pokusevski. Pokusevski scored 48 FPTS last game. You read that right, 48 FPTS in 39 minutes from Aleksej Pokusevski. The Thunder should have similar injuries tonight and it is crazy Pokusevski is not more expensive. Pokusevski is a smash play in any lineup build tonight.
Moses Brown – C ($3,500 DK) Brown is another outstanding value opportunity from Oklahoma City tonight. Brown should continue to start for the Thunder due to the myriad of injuries. Brown has scored over 23 FPTS in both of his last two outings and played mid 20’s minutes. It is fair to expect a similar performance tonight, which would make Brown a tremendous value for the price. Brown works well in all builds and is a must for value in Cash games.
Lebron James – G ($10,500 DK) This is the Quintessential King James slate. We have a ton of value plays, and the top end studs do not look too enticing. We can always count on James for a strong performance, and we can easily pay for it today. James continues to have increased upside without Anthony Davis, and has a great matchup with the Timberwolves tonight. James projects as the top producer tonight, and he is an obvious play for DFS. James will have high ownership tonight, which makes him a core play for Cash games.
Zion Williamson – F ($8,700 DK) Williamson was on pace for a solid game before another blowout took place last game. As a result, Williamson’s stats look somewhat underwhelming as of late. However, Williamson has still been a highly effective per minute producer. The Pelicans have a great matchup with the Blazers tonight and Williamson should smash if it stays close. Williamson was on a massive hot streak before catching a few blowouts. We really like getting to Williamson in tournaments as his ownership will likely not reflect his upside.
Clint Capela – C ($7,500 DK) Capela is questionable as of now but he is way too cheap if he is good to go. Capela has been torching lately, averaging 45.9 FPTS over the last ten days. Capela is a solid play if he is healthy. However, if he is out John Collins is likely to massive minutes at center and becomes one of the best plays on the slate.
Have fun tonight, keep an eye on the news and let’s take some big wins.
