DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/31/18): NBA DFS Lineups

FanDuel DraftKings daily fantasy basketball

We have a split slate of games with two in the early window, and three in the late slate, so just take note of the different start times. Not a ton of injuries as of right now, so lineup construction should be pretty straight forward, which could make it difficult to get some of the bigger name players into the same lineup.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 3/31/18.

These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options, to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings. Feel free to stop by the Hoops Chat Room or on Twitter @DFS_Tom, let's get rolling.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Kemba Walker - PG, CHA @ WAS (DK - $8,500)

Walker has put up 21 or more real points in six straight games, and is showing up at the end of the season, even though the Hornets are out of the playoffs. Solid matchup for him against the Wizards, who are giving up 45 DraftKings points per game to point guards, which is right around average for the league. He has a 29% usage rate, along with averaging 1.12 fantasy points per minute this season. Walker should be good for any format tonight, and has nice GPP upside, with the pure scoring he can bring.

Quinn Cook - PG, GS @ SAC (DK - $6,600)

Cook is seeing plenty of playing time with Stephen Curry out, and he has been playing very well in his new role. He has scored in double-digit real points in eight straight games, and is chipping in with plenty of the peripheral stats, so he has value in multiple areas. He is up against the Kings, who are giving up 46 DraftKings points per game to point guards, which should put him in a good spot. The Warriors are slipping a bit right now, but this is a game they should be able to win, and with Cook seeing over 30 minutes per game, he is in a good spot to put up numbers.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Michael Beasley - SF, NY vs DET (DK - $6,400)

Beasley has scored 29 or more DraftKings points in three straight games, and is now up against the Pistons, who are giving up 42 DK points per game to small forwards. He is sitting with a 28% usage rate, along with averaging 1.06 fantasy points per minute, adding solid value to your lineup. Despite the Knicks being in tank mode, Beasley is out there producing every night putting out good tape. He has played over 30 minutes in each of his last three games, and has taken 20 or more field goal attempts in two straight games, giving him some nice upside if he gets hot from the field.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, PF, BKN @ MIA (DK - $6,500)

Hollis-Jefferson has 30 or more DraftKings points in eight of his last 10 games, and is one of the more consistent options on tonight's slate. He is up against the Heat, who he has played three times this season, where he averaged 30 minutes per game, while producing 29.5 DraftKings points per game. Great production out of him, against one of the better defensive teams in the league. Hollis-Jefferson has also scored in double-digit real points in all of his last 10 games, so if he can fill in the rest of the stat sheet, as he normally does, he will be in a good spot to reach value.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Willie Cauley-Stein - C, SAC vs GS (DK - $5,900)

Cauley-Stein is up against the Warriors, a matchup which has shown to be favorable for him this season. He has played them three times this season, averaging 30 minutes per game, while producing 32 DraftKings points per game. The Warriors are giving up 51 DraftKings points per game, which is about league average, but with this game having an over-under at 211 points, we should see some solid scoring. He is averaging 0.99 fantasy points per minute this season, so as long as he gets the minutes, he will put up fantasy numbers.
