Saturday NBA DFS Resourceful Plays from RosterResource.com…
Reggie Jackson – We have to like Reggie going up against Goran Dragic. Jax has stumbled a bit over two of the last three games since seeing his steady rise in salary, but we will throw that out again here with a home matchup against the Heat. Jackson has shown tremendous 50-point upside over the last month, as well.
Tyler Johnson – He is going to start, so we like him for a little more than 20 fantasy points tonight against KCP. For just $3.7k he is a definite addition to many a lineup. With DWade out tonight, Tyler should get 25 minutes and we are looking for 20 fantasy points from Johnson in the bargain bin.
Bismack Biyombo – For just 4k, Bismack has crushed his meager expectation for five-straight games, as his minutes have trickled into the 20s-plus. Putting Bismack in your lineup will give you some room tonight to make a couple of big money moves. The Hornets are having all kinds of injuries in the front court, likely shutting C Al Jefferson down now, as well.
Gerald Henderson – Gerald continues to excel at a very nice 5.6k price tag. He has failed projection only once in the last 10 games, but his upside is minimal. Still, Charlotte is having several personnel issues, but Mr. Consistency is there to make sure that our cash lineup will not be let down.
Jonas Valanciunas – Boston struggles against big men and Jonas rarely disappoints fantasy backers, failing to meet projections in just two out of the last 11 games. Jonas made 9-of-13 from the field last night en route to 21 points and TOR battled hot Brooklyn to the finish. Both teams are flying into Canada from games last night.
Greivis Vasquez – If you roster Greivis, don’t watch the game. It will be the most painful 20 fantasy points you will ever earn. Still, Greivis failed to make expectation last night, but with no price increase, we still might have to put some of our cash game value on Greivis at home against Boston.
Trey Burke – Phoenix is pretty much dunski, so we look for Trey to continue his development. He has been very, very strong, considerably beating projection regularly over the last 10 games, showing some modest upside, as well. He salary has risen nearly 1k over the last two weeks and it may be catching up to him a bit, but he could should continue to score in double-digits tonight at PHX.
Brandan Wright – Wright paid off handsomely for a majority of players on Thursday, putting up 35 fantasy sports getting the start at Golden State. His price was quickly raised $300, but its not enough of an increase at this point with Alex Len out at least two more games. Against Utah here, we aren’t banking on huge upside, but this price still qualifies as a bargain.
Elfrid Payton – He is so consistent, only missing projection once over the last 15 games. Now that’s money. Against Milwaukee tonight, Orlando is expected to only score in the low 90s and Elfrid’s price tag has risen to a season-high, but his floor leadership keeps his numbers up because he has had several games of late with double-digit assists.
Ersan Ilyasova – Ersan’s slow start was made up for with a great third quarter Friday night at Boston. Both teams are coming in from out of town having played last night. Ilyasova has started to fail backers a bit of late with his higher price, but he still has put together a couple of big-upside games to make him a good tourney consideration, as well.
Michael Carter-Williams – When he’s bad, he can be very bad, but when he’s good, he can bring us some tournament upside. He just cashed two 30+ nights in-a-row, but this will be the second of a back-to-back. Still, he played over 33 minutes in both of those games, dishing out seven assists last night in Boston. He had 21 points the previous game at home against the Bulls.
Dirk Nowitzki – Consistent cash-game play tonight against the Warriors at home, as Dirk is only 6k and has failed to meet expectation in only one of the last nine games. All the Dallas usage goes up with the recent knee injury which has sideline Chandler Parsons.
Al-Farouq Aminu – With Chandler Parsons sidelined, enter Al-Farouq Aminu. He has looked great already over the last two games. He had over 25 fantasy points in each. For only 4.4k he is going to be a big value play on Saturday night, as he is sure to play over 25 minutes at home against the Warriors.
Tyson Chandler – Likely no upside for Tyson tonight at home against GS, but he has been averaging 25 fantasy points in each of the last four games. Golden State continues their awesome parade to the postseason, but they have to tap on the breaks just a little bit somewhere. Dallas’ front court also a bit thin tonight, as Chandler Parsons is doubtful tonight with a knee injury.
Mike Conley – Conley is a cash game play for his consistency heading down the stretch, averaging around 30 fantasy points over the last four games. With fellow guard Tony Allen out with an ailing hamstring, Conley could log over 30 minutes again, although it is the second of a back-to-back, so keep on eye on the Memphis lineup news.
Marc Gasol – Money Mark Gasol did us one better on Friday night, as the ultra-consistent forward actually topped most projections considerably in the win against the Thunder. Both Memphis and Washington played last night, so we think the workman-like effort of Gasol is the type of situation we are looking for against the team coming overnight.
Jeff Green – Green is usually not well-owned and his 5.2k price tag is low enough that we should expect nothing less than another consistent fantasy outing from him. He has failed projection in just one of the last nine games and showed some modest upside in three of those contests. Washington is on the back-to-back flying in overnight.
Arron Afflalo – One of our favorites this week, as he continues to help get us cashed with four-straight projection-making outings. He logged 15 shot attempts last night at the Lakers and had 11 shots in each of the previous three games. He is still just 4k on FanDuel and you are going to get your money’s worth.
Damian Lillard – Lill’s shot was on last night early and he helped the easy win at L.A. by putting up the 30-plus FPs we were looking for even though the blowout slowed him down. He has averaged just shy of 35 fantasy points over the last three games.
