FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Tuesday (3/19) PREMIUM
Welcome to the Tuesday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. We have a nice six-game slate to work with today. There aren’t a whole lot of high-end studs on tonight’s slate; At first glance, you’ll see five players with price tags above $10,000, but look closer and you’ll see that Giannis Antetokounmpo is highly questionable with a rolled ankle, Joel Embiid is getting the night off for rest, and LeBron James has been ruled out with a sore left groin. The Warriors and Pacers are playing in the second half of back-to-backs tonight, while the Bucks, 76ers, and Rockets are set to play again Wednesday. With all that in mind, here’s my advice for tonight.
Chris Paul (HOU): $8,500
I’m don’t play Chris Paul often, especially when the Rockets are fully healthy, which they appear to be tonight. I can, however, get behind him with his matchup against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks tonight. Atlanta has given up the most FD points to point guards all season, averaging 51.83 FD points per game. That number has climbed even high recently, reaching a ridiculous average of 59.02 FD points over the past seven. Beyond the matchup, Paul himself has been fantastic lately. He’s averaged 24.5 real points over his last two games and is coming off of a 50.4 FD point performance on Sunday. It all adds to CP3 being one of my favorite overall plays tonight.
