DraftKings NBA Fantasy Picks: March 3rd 2016 March 3, 2016 Fantasy Sport

NBAThe very best NBA daily fantasy sport picks for tournaments at DraftKings on Thursday March 3rd 2016

We’re back with some more NBA draft picks for the 4 game slate tonight starting at 19:30 EST. With a relatively small slate tonight we should be looking for value in the lesser owned players, as percentage issues are going to be huge. Of course if you are playing cash games that’s no problem, but if you’re looking to take down a GPP then you need to find a few contrarian plays for your lineup. The 4 game slate consists of the following matches:

Phoenix Suns vs Miami Heat (19:30 EST)
San Antonio Spurs vs New Orleans Pelicans (20:00 EST)
Sacramento Kings vs Dallas Mavericks (20:30 EST)
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Golden State Warriors (22:30 EST)

Russell Westbrook ($11,200)

Russell WestbrookOkay, I know I said we need to find value, but Westbrook could be essential in this matchup if Steph Curry sits out. Curry is listed as questionable right now after hurting his ankle in Tuesday’s win over the Hawks, and if he does sit, then Westbrook’s value increases dramatically.

The two teams only faced each other as recently as the 27th Feb, where Westbrook scored 56.25 FPS over 42 minutes. Now that was him facing Curry, if Curry is out I think we can add another 10 FPS at least onto that score.

Either way, if you pick Westbrook you know exactly what you are getting. He may be $11,200 but he has a floor of 50 FPS, which especially in cash games, is huge. His ceiling is also up in the 80’s or maybe even 90’s, so even for over 1/5th of your starting salary, he is still a very good addition.


Draymond Green ($8,900)

Draymond GreenAgain, another high priced star. I would say this is pretty dependent on whether Curry and Iguodala sit again, as if they do Green becomes called upon to shoot much more often.

If they are playing, I think there is better value in PF (LeMarcus Aldridge, especially) than spending $8,900 on Green.

However, as we saw against Atlanta on Tuesday, Green can take control offensively when called upon.

He scored 54.75 FPS which included 15 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists, just one off a triple double. He also had a huge game when these two met, with a huge 60.5 FPS with a huge 14 rebounds and 14 assists.


Zaza Pachulia ($5,400)

Zaza PachuliaJust a note, look for Andrew Bogut if the two Golden State Warriors are sitting out.

Pachulia is coming off the back of a 36 FPS night against Orlando on Tuesday, and I’m sure he will be ready to take on the Kings tonight. Pachulia is definitely a GPP play, as you can never be sure about what you’re going to get from him.

He has a remarkably low floor, as he can often see very few minutes if the opposition is lacking height, but that shouldn’t be a problem tonight coming up against DeMarcus Cousins.
