NBA Fantasy Shopper: DFS Lineup Picks for DraftStreet 2/24
PG: Victor Oladipo ($12,113): After three straight rough outings, Oladipo has again been inserted into the starting lineup and has produced accordingly. After undoubtedly his best game of the season on Friday which saw him put up 30 points, 14 assists and 9 rebounds, the rookie followed with a solid 11 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 5 steals Sunday against the Raptors. Now that he is starting and taking over much of the play making from veteran Jameer Nelson, Oladipo should be a great source of fantasy value. The Wizards are a solid defensive team that allows just 99.1 points a game, but does allow opponents to shoot 46% from the field. Look for Oladipo to continue his mini hot streak tonight.
SG: Lance Stephenson ($13,991): My top play of the night in a salary cap format is Stephenson. Over his past two weeks he is putting up great all-around numbers of 14.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists a game. Those should only multiply tonight against an awful Lakers team that is second to last in the league in defense giving up 106 points a game. The Lakers are especially bad at the two guard where Jodie Meeks offers little to no resistance to the opposition. The NBA leader in triple doubles should have a good chance to get another one tonight.
SF: Gerald Green ($10,777): Outside of Goran Dragic, the most important player on the improved Suns team has been Gerald Green. Over his past six games he has averaged 23.3 points a game, mainly due to his outside shooting touch where he has 17 three pointers in those games. Green does not contribute a ton in terms of assists, steals or blocks, however he does have a seven game streak of at grabbing at least 4 rebounds. Tonight’s opponent for Green, the Timberwolves, allows 101.7 points a game while allowing opponents to shoot 36% from deep, expect a big scoring game from the Suns wing.
PF: Tobias Harris ($14,272): Harris, like Oladipo, has picked up his play since the departure of Glen Davis. In his last two games he has combined for 50 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 steals. Harris is also working on a seven game streak of scoring over 12 points and grabbing over 5 rebounds. His price has started to creep up, however a matchup with the Nene-less Wizards should mean good things for the young forward.
C: Timofey Mozgov ($6,854): With the news that Mozgov will take over starting center duties for the Nuggets, the big man is a near must own tonight. He has not put up stellar numbers of late but is fairly consistent with his 9 points, 6 rebounds and 1 block a game. Mozgov has put up those numbers in just 20 minutes a contest thus far in the season and it is fair to assume in his new role he will be getting closer to 30 minutes a night. Combined with the fact that the Nuggets are likely to be without LaMarcus Aldridge tonight and you have the potential for a huge fantasy night at a minimal price.
U: Kevin Seraphin ($6,270): As we mentioned when talking about Harris, Seraphin is likely in for a much larger role now that Nene has been ruled out for 4-6 weeks with a sprained knee. The Wizards have not announced a starter but it seems likely that Seraphin and Trevor Booker will split time upfront. Although Seraphin has not been great of late, he does have games of 10 points and 7 rebounds, 19 points and 5 rebounds, and 10 points and 8 rebounds in his last 12 outings. He should be able to put up a near double-double tonight against Orlando.
