FanDuel NBA Plays: Tuesday

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


I’m here to break down tonight’s 11-game FanDuel NBA slate starting at 7:00 ET. Keep in mind that this column was created earlier in the day, meaning injury information could change the fantasy landscape throughout the afternoon. Obviously you’ll want to keep track of any developments through Rotoworld’s NBA Headlines & Injuries Feed as we move closer to tip-off.

 

 

With that, let’s dive into each position while mining for the best value and overall plays in this slate.

POINT GUARD

 

Emmanuel Mudiay – New York (FanDuel Price: $4,900)

 

Mudiay serves as an adequate bargain to pursue in all formats. He’s seeing 28-30 minutes for the Knicks, translating to 27 and 29 fantasy points respectively over the past two. There’s a good chance he’ll finish within that range again tonight considering the cushy matchup vs Dallas – who ranks 26th in defensive efficiency vs opposing point guards. Mudiay’s value clears some much needed cap space when trying to make high-end stars (LeBron anyone?) attainable.

 

 

Also Consider: Jamal Murray, Dennis Smith Jr. Kemba Walker

 

 

 

SHOOTING GUARD

Bradley Beal – Washington (FanDuel Price: $8,400)

 

Beal is one of my favorite overall plays in this slate, and here’s why: 1) He’ll retain heavy usage with John Wall still out of the lineup, translating to legitimate 50 FP upside. 2) His opponent, Minnesota, ranks 28th in defensive efficiency vs opposing shooting guards. 3) Jimmy Butler is still out for the Wolves, giving Beal much better individual matchups to stuff the stat-sheet. 4) This is a competitive home draw that should inspire plenty of minutes and opportunities out of Beal.

 

 

Also Consider: Nicolas Batum, Devin Booker, Jrue Holiday

SMALL FORWARD

 

Nemanja Bjelica – Minnesota (FanDuel Price: $5,800)

 

I’m trying to work LeBron James into my FanDuel lineup, but he doesn’t need much explanation with a fantastic matchup at Phoenix … The mid-range salary of Nemanja Bjelica helps make LeBron’s cumbersome salary more realistic. Bjelica has been logging heavy minutes with Jimmy Butler sidelined, helping him notch 45 and 38 fantasy points respectively over the past two. That range of production is legitimate when considering 40 minutes of playing time combined with double-digit rebound potential and three-point shooting ability.

 

 

Also Consider: LeBron James, TJ Warren, Jonathan Simmons (better if A.Gordon out)

 

 


POWER FORWARD

Larry Nance Jr – Cleveland (FanDuel Price: $7,800)

 

Here’s how I’m looking at the power forward position: Davis, Simmons, and Harris are GPP picks but too pricey for cash games. Nance makes for a solid pick in all formats. My second power forward spot will likely feature a value filler like Plumlee, Ilyasova, or Gibson … As for Nance, playing up in pace against a Phoenix team that ranks dead last vs opposing power forwards (25th vs centers) adds confidence to the equation. Nance has been thriving with Love and Thompson out for Cleveland, and this is his best matchup as a member of the Cavaliers.

 

 

Also Consider: Mason Plumlee, Taj Gibson, Ersan Ilyasova (if Saric out)

 

 


CENTER

 

DeAndre Jordan – LA Clippers (FanDuel Price: $8,200)

 

I’m liking DeAndre Jordan tonight, as he provides a meaningful discount from top options like Towns, Jokic, and Embiid. That could be the difference between working LeBron James into your lineup or settling for a mid-range pick. Jordan arguably carries similar upside to those aforementioned centers as well. Hitting 44+ fantasy points in three of his past five serves as evidence. The matchup isn’t too bad either, as Chicago ranks 19th vs opposing centers and 17th in rebound rate.

 

 

Also Consider: Brook Lopez, Nikola Jokic, Kyle O’Quinn (better if Kanter out)
