NBA: Tuesday DFS Resourceful Plays

By Ramon Scott, @rsstreams


A short schedule still gives us a few options to consider on Tuesday night, as the eve of the end of regular season is upon us.

Three games are highlighted by a late high-scoring affair between the playoff-jockeying L.A. Clippers and the front court-depleted Phoenix Suns. The early game on the card, however, with Toronto at Boston also had a high overnight total of 208.

The Suns were expected to be without Alex Len and Brandan Wright, as they are likely to go small against Los Angeles with nothing to play for.

Meanwhile, one player with a good matchup from the lower-scoring game of the night – Washington at Indiana – is Pacers’ guard George Hill. Washington is expected to play its starters, but the matchup for Hill is good and the Pacers are playing to hang on to the eight-spot in the East.

Toronto Raptors LogoTyler Hansbrough – Tyler is up to 4k with his expanded role down the stretch, still, he is averaging well over 30 minutes over the last four games and averaging almost 10 rebounds over that stretch.

Phoenix Suns LogoP.J. Tucker – This expected as a favorable matchup for Tucker, who usually will put up nearly 10 shots each night and also grab 8-10 rebounds. 5k is a relative low salary point of late for P.J.

Phoenix Suns LogoMarkieff Morris – Markieff’s upside makes him a tournament selection, as many players are opting for smaller buy-in, larger field events toward the end of the season with the volatility. Markieff had over 35 fantasy points at Dallas last Wedneaday.

Phoenix Suns LogoMarcus Morris – Marcus is the less-expensive option of the twins and you can opt for one or both, depending on your preference at a couple of other spots. He production has slowed of late, but he has disappointed over the last three outings.
