DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/27/19): NBA DFS Lineups

There are just five games on tonight's slate which is underwhelming, but after last nights grouping of games it only seems right. Six of the nine games were within 10 points, not including the Spurs/Charlotte game, which the Hornets won in overtime to keep their playoff hopes alive. The end of the regular season has been great to follow and the NBA is still keeping things interesting even with March Madness going on.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 3/26/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings. You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups too early. Be sure to check all the NBA starting lineups and player statuses and availability prior to opening tip.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Rajon Rondo - PG, at UTA ($6,000)

The Jazz still rank in the top half against opposing point guards, but this is Rajon Rondo. Even with how the Lakers season has gone, there's no reason to doubt Rondo's capabilities on the court. He will produce and since this actually should be a competitive game through the first half, do expect some solid production out of him. His price tag is not deserving of his usage and it's really bothersome. He has spikes where his usage bumps up to near 25%, but those games where it stays around the 9-10% is really troubling. Rondo has yet to play the Jazz this season, so expect him to be a medial option tonight. I do have confidence he exceed value but not going to lie, I'm struggling to buy what I, myself am selling.

<strong Wayne Selden Jr. - SG/SF, vs. POR ($3,600)

After having the second best night of the season and his second 20-point outing, Wayne Selden is on the rise. His usage has remained above 20% the last three games and after playing 40 minutes in a loss last night, Selden seems firmly in the Bulls end-of-the-year rotations. He should continue to fill in for any vacancies the Bulls might have this late, but I'm finding it harder and harder to fade him just because of his inconsistencies. He is a value play with upside, but there is risk because of his shooting ability.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Moe Harkless - SF/PF, at CHI ($4,300)

Moe Harkless' hasn't seen the same surges like he had in pervious months, but over the past few weeks he has managed to raise his floor considerably. every game he is doing a little bit of everything and although the scoring is the most important aspect, his defensive contributions have made him a sleeper almost every night. Until his price creeps into the 5K territory, there is no reason to fade Harkless. He has fantastic upside versus the Bulls tonight, and for the rest of the week it shouldn't be hard to find value with Harkless' upcoming schedule.

Derrick Favors - PF/C, vs. LAL ($5,800)

Derrick Favors' first game versus the Lakers was not promising at all. He didn't do mich in the little time, but the league is much different now than how it was in Novermber. Mainly, Favors went from having a good game every blue moon, to posting regular double-doubles against quality opponents. Since Favors has been able to use his size more times than not, and the athleticism that many thought was gone is in fact, back, Favors is a more than viable option in every format, on every night. He's not an All-Star like I am making him out to be, but he does have the ability to produce like one.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Enes Kanter - C, at CHI ($5,000)

As unfortunate as it is to Jusuf Nurkic, this does open the floor Enes Kanter. Since this pick derives from the Nurkic injury, I don't want to spend much time talking about something you already know will happen. Kanter is lined up for a ton of minutes and usage. Despite his defense, he will take up a bulk of Portland's frontcourt minutes and since he has managed to extend his range this season, I like his upside even more against Chicago. Not that this will be a game to see how Kanter does in extended minutes, but this will be a true test of how he defense holds up against pressure.
