FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Thursday (3/21) PREMIUM
This Thursday again we are treated to six NBA games. There are some poor defensive teams in these matchups which will be where most of this advice will focus on. The aim is to have a balanced lineup and take advantages of matchups where we can. However, it helps when you can add firepower like Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell to your lineup.
Tyus Jones (PG – MIN): $5,300 @ CHA
Jones is a combination of value play and matchup play. With the Timberwolves missing both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose, Jones is given the opportunity to start against a relatively bad defensive team in the Hornets. The Hornets allow the ninth most Fan Duel points to opponents and also rank 22nd in defensive rating in the NBA. Jones should have plenty of opportunities to get his points against the Hornets.
Jamal Murray (PG – DEN): $6,900 @ WAS
Murray is coming off a terrible game against the Celtics but should bounce back nicely against the Wizards who allow the third most Fan Duel points to opposing Point Guards. The Wizards also rank 26th in the league in defensive rating. Murray over his last five games has averaged 26 Fan Duel points. He should be able to get around 30 Fan Duel points against a decidedly weaker team.
