FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/4/20): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

On Tuesday, we saw some nasty performances from the likes of Anthony Davis and Caris Levert, who both combined for 134,9 fantasy points. For those who didn't finish in the money, Wednesday's seven-game slate gives us a chance to get it right. Before we get started, we have some notable injuries to keep an eye on, as several players are listed on the latest report. Andre Drummond won't play once again against the visiting Celtics, marking his fourth absence in the last five games. Speaking of Boston, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward are all questionable, which may open the door for some value opportunities in the event that a few--or all--of those guys sit. To Round out the rest of the injuries on this Wednesday, Derrick Rose, Luke Kennard, Tyler Herro, Justise Winslow, Karl-Anthony Towns, J.J. Redick, Darius Garland, Brandon Clarke, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Zach LaVine have already been ruled out. On the other hand, Tristan Thompson, Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mitchell Robinson, Seth Curry, and Damian Lillard all have a shot at playing.

Washington at Portland is our target game of the night, with both of these squads projected to total nearly 240 points, which is followed closely by New Orleans at Dallas at 236 points. With so many teams playing the second of back-to-back outings, keep on eye on minute distribution, especially in contests that have a chance to be one-sided.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 3/4/20. 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

Luka Doncic - PG, vs. NOP ($10,300)

We know Luka is always a threat to put up a healthy amount of fantasy points, but he has a prime matchup on Wednesday against the Pelicans. New Orleans has had it rough all season defending the backcourt, and while Lonzo Ball and Jrue Holiday are capable defenders, the duo is allowing an average of 0.65 fantasy points per minute on the year.

Caris LeVert - SG, vs. MEM ($6,000)

The pace of this one should give LeVert plenty of chances to make some noise on the fantasy end. He appears to be back on track and healthy for the first time in a long time, and now has seemingly surpassed Spencer Dinwiddie as the primary offensive threat for the Nets. He put up 51 points during the overtime win over Boston, and though he may see fewer minutes after getting his fair share of action on Tuesday night, he still has a solid chance to hit value against the Grizzlies.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk - SG, vs. OKC ($3,700)

As mentioned, Bruce Brown is on the injury report, and likely won't play against the Thunder. With his potential absence, this will open up some minutes for Mykhailiuk, who has thrived as of late by averaging nearly 24 fantasy points over his previous two games. The minutes will be there for him, and the matchup isn't bad either.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Zion Williamson - PF, @ DAL ($7,700)

After starting the year with an 18-27 record, the Pelicans have been a .500 ball club with Zion in the lineup. Having just been cleared to play consecutive contests, the rookie should be in uniform as New Orleans scratches and claws to make the postseason. He had 25 points against the Timberwolves on Tuesday, marking his 12th consecutive game with at least 20 points. His priced actually dropped as well, so let's take advantage of this.

Larry Nance Jr. - PF, vs. BOS ($5,400) 

Nance showed up to play a few nights ago against the Utah Jazz, finishing things up just shy of a triple-double. With Andre Drummond already out as a result of a strained calf, Nance should get some additional run on Wednesday against the Celtics, with the potential for more if Tristan Thompson is also ruled out once again after missing his previous two due to a knee issue.

Kevin Porter Jr. - SF, vs. BOS ($5,000)

Porter has the ability to explode on Wednesday night in the absence of so many players for the Cavs. He played 40 minutes against Utah on Monday and finished with just under 31 fantasy points. Look for him be on the floor a good chunk of the evening, which should give him plenty of opportunities to rack up some serious fantasy points--or at least we hope.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Rudy Gobert - C, @ NYK ($7,600)

Gobert should be a force to be reckoned with against a horrendous Knicks squad. He is coming off a strong outing against the Cavs where he finished with 51.3 fantasy points. He could do some damage again on Wednesday night, especially if Mitchell Robinson isn't able to go.
