Tuesday’s DFS NBA 3/4
Tuesday’s six game is a sloppy one to me. Picking players from the PHI/OKC game seems like suicide while the Pacers and Spurs play. Usually, this means that you can’t pick anyone in that huge spread, the team against the Pacers, and any Spurs players. While researching, I found seven players I really liked and six were from the Los Angeles games. Tonight should be interesting to say the least.
Tyreke Evans had a huge night last night and if you picked him then you probably won yourself some money. His line of 27/10/8 was outstanding and tonight he faces a great matchup, the Lakers. He’s averaging 9/5/4/2 in just 28 minutes of action against them on the season. Evans is shooting much better as of late seeing his FG% be 46% or better in his last three games. Evans should continue to see tons of minutes with him now being in the starting lineup.
Lance Stephenson is tonight’s “Jimmy Butler.” He should net you 30+ fantasy points like he has in the last three games, but I doubt he puts up a huge game for you. Stephenson does have a 14/10/7 game against the Warriors on the season though. The pace of this game should be faster than a usual Pacers game, which is a plus for him. In 39 minutes of action per last five games, he’s averaging 16/8/5.
Gerald Green was red hot from the field in his last game and put up 33 real points. He didn’t do much of anything else though only recording three rebounds, one assist, and one block. Green has taken 13+ shots in ten straight games and he should continue that streak tonight against Redick, Dudley, Barnes, and company tonight.
Wesley Johnson is back to bigger minutes and should continue to play 30+ minutes as long as Nick Young stays out. In Johnson’s last three games, he has averaged 15/8/3/1/3. Those numbers have made him completely relevant in the fantasy world and has caused his price to go up everywhere in the industry.
Pau Gasol is back from injury has been great in his last six games. In those games he’s averaging 18/8/3/1/2. His matchup against the Pelicans is solid and he should see plenty of fantasy points tonight. He’s averaging just over one fantasy point per minute against the Pelicans this season. If he can keep shooting 17+ times like he has in his last two games then he has the potential for another big night tonight.
DeAndre Jordan doesn’t have great numbers against the Suns this season, but neither does Blake Griffin. Jordan has three double doubles in his last four games and has also been putting up a ton of blocks. He has three straight games of four blocks and because of that can still put up nice numbers without lots of real points. Jordan has nine games of 10+ rebounds, so his consistency will be there tonight with those kinds of numbers.
Tim Duncan should be great tonight against the Cavs as long as he gets 30 minutes or so. In his one game against them earlier in the season he only played 16 minutes, but managed to put up 9/6/1/0/3. He has played 33 and 35 minutes in his last two games, so beware of any chance of getting Pop’d.
