DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (3/7) PREMIUM
We have a seven-game slate tonight, which is a bit smaller for a Wednesday, but there are still some good options across the board. As of right now, there are five of the seven games which have over-unders set at 213 points or higher, so we should be in for a good fantasy night, despite the smaller slate.
Zach LaVine (CHI): $6,700 vs. MEM
Despite the Bulls being in “tank mode,” LaVine is still going out there and giving his best nearly every game. This is the type of player you want to roster since his stats should be there regardless of the outcome. He did have a bad game against Boston in his most recent outing, but they are generally better at defense and play a slower pace, so don’t put too much stock into it. He has a 32% usage rate which is highest on the team, along with averaging 1.08 fantasy points per minute. LaVine and the Bulls are up against the Grizzlies, who are giving up 41 DraftKings points per game shooting guards, putting him in a good spot.
Buddy Hield (SAC): $5,200 vs. NO
Hield is up against his former team and in a pace up spot, which makes him a nice tournament option tonight. This game has an over-under set at 224 points, so you will certainly want some exposure to it, and Hield isn’t that expensive. He has a usage rate sitting at 26%, along with averaging 0.99 fantasy points per minute, so plenty of touches and production out of him on a nightly basis. Hield is up against the Pelicans, who are giving up 42 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards, which is fifth worst in the league.
