Recommended DFS plays for NBA action on 3/25:
PG: Raymond Felton ($11,683): Despite hyperextending his thumb on Sunday, Felton appears to be good to go tonight against the Lakers. Assuming he plays, Felton should be in for a monster night against the awful Lakers defense. He has been up and down all season but is coming off of a game in which he posted 14 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals against the Cavs. He should easily be able to match those numbers tonight when he takes on Kendall Marshall and Jodie Meeks.
SG: Nick Young ($9,120): Swaggy P is back and through two games it’s clear that he hasn’t forgotten how to get shots up. In those two games he has 33 shot attempts in 60 minutes of game time. The good news is that he seems to have his shooting stroke as he has put up 47 points combined against the Wizards and Magic. With a ton on injuries to the Lakers backcourt, Young should continue to see around 30 minutes which is more than enough time to be productive. He will not provide a ton of stats outside of scoring, but for his price he can score his way to great value.
SF: Nicolas Batum ($16,041): Batum has slowed down over his past few games, but that was expected against good defensive teams on the road. The Blazers will again be on the road tonight, but have a great matchup as they take on the Magic. The Magic are coming off of a game in which they allowed Nick Young to score 26, Kent Bazemore had 8 points and 8 assists, while Jodie Meeks had 13 points and 6 steals. Batum is a far superior player to the Laker wings and with LaMarcus Aldridge still out of action should have a shot to record another triple double. Even at an elevated price he should be in your lineups tonight.
PF: Carmelo Anthony ($21,446): On a day with just four games you generally need to roll out at least one high priced player, and my choice tonight is going to be Anthony. He has been incredibly consistent the entire season with yearly averages of 28.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and a surprising 1.2 steals per game. Like Felton, Anthony should be able to take big advantage of a weak Lakers defense that will likely deploy Wes Johnson and Ryan Kelly on him. Don’t be surprised if he wants to show former Lakers boss Phil Jackson what he can do, so a 40 point and 10 rebound game is certainly in play.
C: Samuel Dalembert ($10,521): Very quietly, the veteran Dalembert has started to play some good minutes for the Mavs. In his last three games he is averaging 7.6 points, 13 rebounds and 3.7 blocks. That includes a monster game Sunday in which he played 35 minutes and had 12 points, 15 rebounds and 7 blocks. Tonight he is at home against a Thunder team that does not have a true center on the team. He likely won’t duplicate the 7 blocks, but look for another double-double with very few missed shots or turnovers.
