DraftKings NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (3/23) PREMIUM
We have a seven-game slate for Saturday night that features two high-scoring contests with a Vegas point total above 230. As the regular season comes to a close, we have to prepare for players getting rested or shut down as some teams look to make a deep playoff run and others throw in the towel.
Karl-Anthony Towns (C – MIN): $10,500 @ MEM
Towns is as consistent as they come in the DFS world. The lowest showing in his last six games was 48 fantasy points against Houston. He should get plenty of opportunities as he takes on the Memphis frontcourt, which doesn’t have the talent to stay with the All-Star center. In his three games against the Grizzlies this season, Towns is averaging 19 points, 16 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 33 minutes.
Joel Embiid (C – PHI): $10,700 @ ATL
The Process takes on the fast-paced Hawks with the highest-projected Vegas total of 236.5 points. It also helps that the Hawks give up 54.0 DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing centers. Embiid is coming off back-to-back dominant performances in which he posted an average of 38.5 points, 18.5 rebounds, five assists, two steals, and a block per contest. If Embiid isn’t hit with a “load management,” lock him into your lineups.
