NBA: Friday DFS Resourceful Plays

By Ramon Scott, @rsstreams

 

Sacramento Kings LogoRay McCallum – The Kings are considerable underdogs, but still could get close to 100 points, according to oddsmakers. Sacramento is likely to be without its two top players, so other positions receive bumps, too. Ray failed to make projection last time out at tough Utah, but put up a pair of 31-point fantasy games before that.

Oklahoma City Thunder LogoAnthony Morrow – Morrow might be the best option to play the OKC blowout, as he can see tweener minutes given his role. He had three tremendous fantasy games last week, putting yup 31, 26 and 38 FP.

Los Angeles Lakers LogoRyan Kelly – At 4.5k at FanDuel, Ryan Kelly is still quite a good option, as he has made his projection in eight of the last 10 games. Los Angeles is expected to score around 100 points, and Kelly has averaged well over 30 minutes over the last 10 games.

Los Angeles Lakers LogoWesley Johnson – Johnson has been very up-and-down fantasy-wise, but we are banking on the nightcap being a defenseless affair. Johnson has fantasy performances of 25, 32, 33 and 28 over the last two weeks, and this should be smooth sailing against Minnesota.

Minnesota Timberwolves LogoZach LaVine – Zach and the T-wolves are actually favored in this one, as the visitors are expected to score almost 105 points, according to oddsmakers. Zach has had some big fantasy games with Rubio sidelined over the last several weeks. He is 6.1k at Fandeul and had 33 and 43 FPs in the first two games of this road time.

Minnesota Timberwolves LogoKevin Martin – This matchup has to work well as Martin works back into the lineup for the final games of the season. He came back in a big way against Sacramento with 37 points, but slowed considerable at Portland.

Orlando Magic LogoTobias Harris – Harris is 6.5k at FanDuel, as Orlando hosts Toronto. The Magic are expected to score close to 105 points. Tobias had five-straight double-digit scoring efforts, but fell well short last time out against the Bulls.

Orlando Magic LogoElfrid Payton – Payton hardly disappoints and these price still seems fair at 8k. He only has fallen short of projection one time in the last 19 games. He has been one of the strongest consistent cash-game values for the last month.

Atlanta Hawks LogoMike Scott – Scotty looks like a terrific option for this bargain price, as Paul Millsap is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season. He had 20 points in 30 minutes at BKN on Wednesday, and should get a full compliment of minutes tonight, as well.

Denver Nuggets LogoDanilo Gallinari – Gallo had nearly 45 fantasy points against the Lakers and while Dallas is favored to win what is expected to be the highest-scoring game of the night, consider that the Mavs’ playoff spot is virtually sealed. Gallinari took 19 shots on Wednesday night.

Denver Nuggets LogoKenneth Faried – Don’t sleep on this Nugget, either, coming off his 50-point fantasy effort against the Lakers. He finished with 29 points in that last game and Denver is expected to score around 105 points in a losing effort against Dallas, according to oddsmakers.
