FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Tuesday (3/26) PREMIUM
Buckle in, it’s going to be a wild Tuesday in the world of NBA DFS. We have a huge 10-game slate to navigate today. There are a staggering 13 players with salaries over $9,000 tonight, though Kyrie Irving has already been ruled out while LeBron James and Luka Doncic show up on the injury report. Plus, it’s been a while since Kawhi Leonard rested, so there’s definite potential for him to be out as well. The matchup between the Hawks and Pelicans is most enticing with a projected total of 240 points and the Pelicans favored by just one. Conversely, the showdown between the Heat and the Magic only sports a paltry projected total of 205 points. Keeping all this in mind, here’s my advice for tonight.
Trae Young (ATL): $8,200
No better place to start than the aforementioned juicy matchup in New Orleans, featuring the two teams that give up the most FD points across the board. Looking at point guard specifically, the Pelicans have given up the third-most FD points to the position on the season and the second most over the past seven. Enter Trae Young, who’s averaging 24.0 points and 8.5 assists per game over his last six while he tries to chase down Luka Doncic for rookie of the year. That’s translated to 40.4 FD points per game over that span, making his $8,200 price tag feel like a steal given the matchup tonight.
