Thanks to the yesterday’s trade deadline, we have a crazy NBA slate tonight. Anyone who was traded yesterday is unavailable to play today, so a lot of teams will be undermanned for tonight. We have gone with a stars and scrubs build tonight, as tonight’s slate has a ton of value. The Golden State Warriors and the Miami Heat are our two favorite targets tonight, as they are both missing a few other top dogs. We just got the news that Luka Doncic and Damian Lillard are both out for tonight. There is a ton of value to choose from and we can easily get to our favorite studs.
|Point Guard||J. Harden||$10,800|
|Shooting Guard||J. Brunson||$4,500|
|Small Forward||M. Strus||$3,000|
James Harden is listed questionable for the third straight slate. We have seen him play one game and sit the other. As Brooklyn is still missing there other two stars, Harden is a smash play for us if he is listed in. Harden will see massive usage if he plays tonight and has a good matchup with the Pistons. If Harden is listed out, you can look to pivot to another top end stud like Giannis Antetokounmpo. If Harden ends up being listed out, the Nets become a great option to find value once again.
Luka Doncic is currently listed as doubtful for tonight, and the Mavericks are a great source for value without him. Jalen Brunson has shown nice upside as a ball handler for Dallas, and we love getting to him at $4,500 tonight. Brunson scored 39.8 FPTS last game and has upside for an even better performance tonight. Brunson should be priced over $6,000 without Doncic and is an absolute lock for us at this price.
As we mentioned in the introduction, the Miami Heat are one of our favorite options for value tonight. Max Strus is only $3,000 and is a great tournament value choice tonight. He played 21 minutes last game and has upside for even more tonight. Strus definitely has a low floor, but at minimum price he gives your lineup a lot of upside. Strus should have to play decent minutes again tonight and could smash value if he gets going.
Damian Lillard is listed as out tonight and Portland is yet another team that we want a piece of. CJ McCollum is the obvious choice tonight as he should see massive usage without Lillard. McCollum is still cheap at only $7,700, as he has upside that rivals anyone on the slate. McCollum scored 51.3 FPTS last game and could be in for another massive game tonight. McCollum is averaging over 40 FPTS per game this season and gets a massive usage boost without Lillard. McCollum is a great play tonight as he is far too cheap for his potential production.
Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• Our favorite options from the Golden State Warriors
• High upside studs on the Miami Heat
• Access to our core FanDuel lineup!
Juan Toscano-Anderson – PF (3,800 DK) With Draymond Green out for the Warriors there is a great opportunity tonight for Toscano-Anderson. Toscano-Anderson went for 33.5 FPTS in 26.3 minutes last game and we expect him to get similar run tonight. Toscano-Anderson has upside for another great game, but he should be in line for some solid value here. Toscano-Anderson is averaging 16.2 FPTS per game this season, and we have to imagine he gets a solid boost with all injuries for the Warriors tonight.
Bam Adebayo – C ($8,200 DK) Adebayo absolutely smashed last night, as he went 59.8 FPTS. With all the big injuries for the Heat, it is not unlikely for Adebayo to have a monster game. The Heat will remain undermanned again tonight and will rely heavily on Adebayo on both ends. Furthermore, the Charlotte Hornets are a great matchup for the Heat, as they play at a fast pace and are notoriously weak against centers.
Kendrick Nunn– G ($4,900 DK) Nunn is always an enticing DFS play when Goran Dragic is out of the rotation. With multiple injuries for the Heat tonight, Nunn should be in for a massive game and is another lock for us at this price. Nunn went for 39.3 FPTS last night playing over 33 minutes. Tonight, Nunn should be in for massive floor time once again and is way too cheap for this role. Nunn is a high usage player and is our favorite option from Miami tonight.
Andrew Wiggins – F ($6,900 DK) Wiggins has been shooting the air out of the rock since Steph Curry Went down four games ago. Wiggins is still too cheap for the massive usage he has been seeing without Curry in the Lineup. Wiggins went for 46 FPTS last game and has showed upside well over 60 recently. The Warriors have a nice matchup against the Hawks tonight, and Wiggins could be in for another one of his monster performances.
Here’s a stars and scrubs lineup For DFS Basketball 3/26/21 (using FanDuel Values)
|Point Guard||K. Nunn||$5,500|
|Point Guard||J. Brunson||$4,800|
|Shooting Guard||J. Harden||$11,300|
|Shooting Guard||C. McCollum||$7,500|
|Small Forward||M. Strus||$3,500|
|Small Forward||D. Finney-Smith||$3,900|
|Power Forward||J. Toscano-Anderson||$4,300|
|Power Forward||G. Antetokounmpo||$11,100|
Dorian Finney-Smith – SG (6,000 FD) This is a great price to get Finney-Smith at tonight, as he should see some nice usage without Doncic. Finney-Smith is averaging over 20 FPTS per game this season and should be in for a nice boost tonight. He has great upside at this price and is cheap enough for a solid floor.
Giannis Antetokounmpo – PF ($11,100 FD) Antetokounmpo is always an enticing option for us as he is the best per minute producer in NBA DFS. We have a ton of value on tonight’s slate, and it is very easy to find the value for Antetokounmpo along with Harden. Antetokounmpo is averaging 55.89 FPTS per game this season and always has upside to be the top producer on the slate.
Good luck everyone, hope you enjoyed the trade deadline.
