FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Thursday (3/15) PREMIUM
Sadly, the NBA regular season is coming to a screeching halt. Which means there’s all the more reason to load up on lineups while you still can. Tonight’s nine-game mega slate features games with playoff seeding implications, an epic tank battle and almost everything in between. With so many teams playing, there should be plenty of value to mine for your rosters. Of course, every recommendation below is based on currently available information. As always, make sure to check injury reports before lineups lock so you’re using the most accurate information and avoiding a big fat zero in your lineup.
Ricky Rubio (UTA): $7,400 vs PHO
I’m high on Rubio tonight, betting that his ownership will be depressed as everyone clamors to fit the white-hot Damian Lillard in their lineups (a fine play). Utah is an ideal team to target, as they get to beatdown on a Suns team that runs the league’s second-fastest pace and also sports the worst Defensive Rating in the NBA. That, my friends, is a recipe for fantasy success. The Suns have been particularly forgiving to point guards both throughout the season and over the last ten games, while Rubio continues to play the best basketball of his career.
