FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/9/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Tonight features a solid five game slate that has two games with significantly higher implied totals than the other three. The Nets/Hawks and Timberwolves/Wizards are expected to be the highest scoring games of the night by a good margin. Of course, there will be great fantasy plays in every game but implied totals is an excellent place to start DFS research.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 3/9/19. 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

Tomas Satoransky - PG, at Min ($6,300)

Satoransky has been playing excellent recently and there is no reason to believe that his successful ways won't continue tonight in a high-paced matchup against Minnesota. Satoransky has been playing huge minutes- he is playing anywhere from 35-40 minutes nearly every game. In that amount of minutes, Satoransky will always have a chance to get to his ceiling score of about 55 FanDuel points. At just $6,300, if Satoransky has a ceiling game, your lineup will quickly climb leaderboards.

Khris Middleton - SG, vs CHA ($7,600)

Middleton has been proving that his All-Star bid this season was well deserved as he continues to play some relatively big minutes while shooting the ball great. In his last six games, Middleton has put up acceptable fantasy numbers in six games- the other two games weren't fantastic but probably would not have killed a lineup. With that being said, at $7,600, Middleton has at least 6-7x upside and a fairly high floor of about 30 FanDuel points. Middleton should be a fairly low-owned option in big field tournaments.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Trevor Ariza - SF, at MIN ($6,200)

Ariza has been somewhat inconsistent lately but tonight looks to be an opportunity for him to reach for a ceiling game. As mentioned before, this game is expected to be high-paced and high-scoring so finding some lower-owned players like Ariza may be the way to attack tonight's slate. Pairing Satoransky, Ariza, and a Minnesota player or two will likely be a slightly contrarian way to stack this game. Ariza has shown that he has nearly 50 FanDuel point upside- if he is expected to be lower-owned than most guys in this game, he will be an excellent tournament option.

Jayson Tatum - PF, at LAL ($6,500)

Unless a lot of injury news breaks later in the day, today's lineup construction looks like it will be fairly balanced. In addition, PF looks pretty gross for tonight- so, Tatum looks to be one the best mid-tier options of the night. On a fairly balanced Celtics roster that has numerous contributors, Tatum has proven to be one of the more consistent fantasy producers. Against a struggling Lakers teams, Tatum should see at least 32 minutes which is plenty of time for him to reach his 7-8x ceiling. Just based off of the limited options at PF for tonight, Tatum can be considered in tournament and cash formats.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Alex Len - C, vs BKN ($4,700)

With Dedmon doubtful for tonight, there is no doubt that Len will yet again be amongst the highest-owned players on tonight's slate. With starter minutes, Len has proven he has nearly 50 FanDuel point upside- at $4,700, if he gets anything above about 35 FanDuel points, it'll make it extremely hard to cash unless he is in your lineup. Of course, center is always a deep position and taking chances with other centers in multi-entry tournaments is a good idea but as long as Dedmon is out, Len should be played on all cash and single-entry tournament teams.
