FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/17/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We have eight games scheduled on Sunday to close out the weekend. With some key matchups taking place that could solidify the playoff picture, expect some quality minutes from players on numerous teams. As far as Vegas is concerned, Chicago/Sacramento leads the slate with a projected combined total of 233 points followed closely by Brooklyn/LA Clippers and Philadelphia/Milwaukee at 231. We also have some injuries that we are keeping an eye on as Dennis Smith Jr., Noah Vonleh, Justise Winslow, Dwyane Wade, Malcolm Brogdon, Pat Connaughton, Danny Green, Kyle Lowry, Fred Vanvleet, Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose, Allen Crabbe, James Harden, and DeMarre Carroll are all listed on the latest report in some shape or form.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 3/17/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Eric Bledsoe - PG, vs. PHI ($7,000)

Though the Sixers likely won't catch the Bucks to claim the top seed in the Eastern Conference, both teams will look to assert dominance over the other in an attempt to gain momentum come playoff time.  When these two clubs met back in October, they combined for a total of 231 points, with Bledsoe playing an integral part in Milwaukee's 123-108 decisive victory over Philly, scoring 18 points on 18 shot attempts to go along with seven boards, four assists, one steal, and one block. With Malcolm Brogdon out of the picture for the foreseeable future, the 29-year-old will get a 3.1 percentage bump in usage and should produce fantasy numbers close to, or even beyond his value of 35 fantasy points.

Jeremy Lamb - SG, @ MIA ($6,400)

In another key matchup, the Hornets will look to gain ground on Miami as we head towards the postseason. Though Lamb doesn't start consistently, he has a sizable role for Charlotte, averaging 12.4 shot attempts per game in only 28.8 minutes this year. He hasn't played very efficiently against the Heat this season, but with desperation mode about to kick in (if it hasn't already), look for Lamb, Nicolas Batum, and Kemba Walker to pick up the pace in an attempt to claim the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Giannis Antetokounmpo - SF, vs. PHI ($12,000)

Antetokounmpo will face some pressure to deliver against a Sixers team that will be looking to get in the heads of everyone on the Milwaukee roster as the regular season heads towards the final stretch. The freak was dominant against Philly in their lone meeting of the season thus far, amassing a triple-double via 32 points, 18 boards, 10 assists, three blocks, and two steals. He should be considered a must-own on Sunday as ownership for him will likely be high across the board.

Nikola Mirotic - SF, vs. PHI ($5,000)

Mirotic will be in store for an increase in minutes with the injury to Brogdon, who will be out with a foot injury. In addition, keep an eye on Connaughton and Donte Divincenzo, who are both at risk of not playing, meaning even more of a run for the veteran on Sunday at a discounted price.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Joel Embiid - C, @ MIL ($11,000)

Just like Giannis, Embiid was also effective in these team's last matchup, ending the night with 30 points, 19 rebounds, and three blocks throughout 36 minutes of action. He doesn't cost as much as the freak, meaning you could get similar production while saving a little cash in the process. With such a loaded slate, the $1,000 in savings can go along way on Sunday afternoon.
