Sunday DFS Morning Lineup from RosterResource.com…
In an unbalanced NBA DFS schedule on Sunday, there will be choices between all day and night-game only schedules.
Which one DFS players participate in might be determined by anything from field size to convenience. Picking out your high-priced talent for those cards will likely be the more difficult decision.
We are certainly apt, however, to recommend James Harden (pictured) as our top suggestion in what figures to be a very high-scoring shooting at OKC. The overnight total was approaching 217 early Sunday morning.
Harden is currently 11.6k at at FanDuel, but we have to like him for a 50-spot on the road. He came up well short last time out, but hadn’t really finished terribly below projection in six-straight prior. And he also has four huge fantasy games in just the last nine contests with FP totals of 68, 56, 63 and 66.
LeBron James could be coupled with Harden, as the Cavaliers are expected to score around 103 points at home against the Bulls. LBJ has satisfied his backers in three-straight and five of the last six, but is not showing the blockbuster upside that some of the other big names in fantasy are putting up.
There are two nationally televised games that open up with seven-game slate, but also a five-game late-only DFS card that can be selected, as well.
DeAndre Jordan – DJ could be a play at 9k, as he almost put up 50 fantasy at DEN on Saturday night, but you have to worry about a blowout here and the back-to-back as Los Angeles faces the Lakers, who are the designated home team. Jordan has missed projection in just two of the last 10 games and that was just by four fantasy points in both those games.
Blake Griffin – Blake is 9.5k at FanDuel, so we need about 40 fantasy points from the Clips’ PF. Blake got a dramatic price increase last game from 8.8k back up to 9.5k, but that doesn’t mean the good times have ended, as he had that 67-point fantasy game against the Warriors last Tuesday.
Russell Westbrook – You may have to actually have to consider and pay up here for Russell at home in the high-scoring shootout with the Rockets. We are a bit shy with Westbrook actually missing projection in four of his last seven, but two of those games were against San Antonio and Memphis.
Tim Duncan – With also could like Duncan with Green matched up on him. In this possible preview of the WCF, we still think the Spurs will be very interested here, as will the opponent. The Warriors, despite, their success, are showing no signs of letting up.
Kawhi Leonard – Okay, well, it wouldn’t feel right not to mention the Spurs’ SF who actually gets a $100 decrease in salary for this one against mighty Golden State. Leonard has failed to meet expectations in two of last three, and he could be the at the finish of a close game.
Pau Gasol – One of the most consistent higher fantasy point producers that still has his reasonable salary of 8.8k at FanDuel. The matchup at CLE could be of concern, but he is easily a threat to put up over 40 FPs again.
