3/8/18 NBA Draftkings/Fanduel Picks
Tonight we have a smaller 5 game slate, but still with lots of intriguing options to choose from. I have laid out three players who I think will be essential picks for a winning lineup.
Dwyane Wade- PG/SG ($5.4k-DK) ($5.1k FD)- It would be quite lofty to predict a repeat performance like he had in the first matchup versus the 76ers where he posted 39.7 fanduel points. That being said, I love the high floor/ceiling that Wade brings to the table and a huge game is never out of the question. At Just over 5k on both sites, he can provide salary relief for a stud like Westbrook.
Devin Booker- SG/SF ($8.9k-DK) ($8.2k FD)- Booker had a field day the last time he played against the thunder where he put up an enormous 56.2 fantasy points. I love playing booker in a fast paced and competitive game like this. He is a fiery player who always steps up his game when playing against elite guys like Westbrook. The Thunder have had trouble all year defending the three, and that is just the thing Booker loves the most.
Josh Jackson- SF/PF ($5.7k-DK) ($5.3k FD)- Going back to the PHX-OKC game, I'm going with Josh Jackson. I think people might be hesitant to play Jackson after he has failed to crack even 14 fanduel points in his last two games. That is perfectly fine for me however as Jackson has played the thunder twice this year and posted 36 and 39.5 fantasy games respectively. He is the Perfect player for GPP tournaments and I wouldn't be afraid to roll him out in cash games as well.
As always good luck tonight!
