FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (3/12) PREMIUM
The NBA schedule makers provided a nice small four-game slate for Monday night presumably so that everyone can focus on filling out their March Madness brackets instead of NBA DFS research. That was sure nice of them! As such the sample lineup below came together pretty easily. However, as usual, you’ll need to pay attention to the injury updates leading up to tipoff, assuming you can find the time to stop searching for this year’s Cinderella in your March Madness bracket.
Chris Paul (HOU): $8,300 vs SA
There aren’t many good matchups for PGs on Monday’s short slate if you look at the season-long numbers, but the Spurs have been vulnerable over the last 15 days giving up the fourth-most FanDuel points to the position. Chris Paul has had one dynamite game against the Spurs (65.8 FD points) and one dud (18.4 FD points) this season, so at least we know the likely best and worst-case scenario for Monday. I’m willing to split the difference for a 42.1 FD point night which falls right in line with his season average.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL): $7,500 @ MEM
You’ll notice a trio of Bucks on Monday’s lineup as they get to take on the injury-riddled, tanking Memphis Grizzlies. As a result, the Grizzlies haven’t won since January and have the ninth-worst defensive efficiency over their last eight games. Bledsoe gets a fantasy boost in his individual matchup as the Grizzlies have allowed the third-most FD point to opposing PGs over the last 15 days.
