FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (3/10/20): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Hello RotoBallers! I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday and are ready to win some money on tonight's nine-game main slate on FanDuel. No teams are coming off a back-to-back, so the players are rested and prepared to provide our fantasy lineups with some high numbers. Tonight, we will get to see Boston and Indiana play in a potential playoff preview, Houston trying to stop their slide against a Minnesota team minus Karl-Anthony Towns, and Phoenix and Portland try to chase down Memphis for a playoff spot.

The game of the day from a DFS standpoint has to be the Minnesota-Houston shootout. It has the highest over/under on the slate at 244.5, and both teams are top-four in pace. James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Malik Beasley, and D'Angelo Russell should all be targets in a game with an over/under that high. Harden has the ceiling to win you a night by himself, but Beasley could be a sneaky option at a much cheaper price tag.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 3/10/20. 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. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @EuanOrYouOut on Twitter, and remember to check our injury updates before the games start at 7 pm Eastern tonight.


FanDuel DFS Guards

James Harden - SG, HOU vs. MIN ($11,200)

The Rockets have lost four games in a row and look to stop the slide against the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight. Harden has been extremely inefficient in those four losses, shooting 32.5 percent from the field and 19 percent from behind the arc, and yet he is still putting up desirable fantasy numbers. The 2018 MVP is averaging 26 points, eight assists, 6.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals in those four losses while getting to the line 12.8 times per game. The free throws are what gives him such a solid floor on a nightly basis. Now, the Beard takes on a Timberwolves team that gives up the third-most points to opposing guards. It's hasn't been pretty for Harden, but it's been useful, and he can still carry you to the promised land on any given night.

Malik Beasley - SG, MIN @ HOU ($5,700)

Malik Beasley has been great since he was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the deadline. In his 13 games with his new team, Beasley is averaging career-highs with 21.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, two assists, and 3.7 made threes per game. That has translated into some cheap, daily fantasy success as he has hit the 30-point barrier in eight of those 13 games. The fourth-year guard takes on a Houston defense that ranks fifth-worst in the league against shooting guards, allowing 43.4 fantasy points per game. Both these teams play at a phenomenal pace, and the massive over/under will give Beasley a lot of opportunities to hit his ceiling on Tuesday night.

RJ Barrett - SG, NYK @ WSH ($5,000)

Barrett has an ideal matchup versus the Wizards on Tuesday. Washington gives up the most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards in the league, and the rookie has also been in fine form. Barrett is averaging 16.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists over his last 10 games and has eclipsed the 15-point barrier in seven of those 10. He set a new career-high with 27 points against the Rockets last week and has a chance to get close to that number again versus Washington. The Wizards allow 26.48 points per 48 minutes to shooting guards, and that is a point and half more than the 29th ranked Warriors. There are a lot of high-prices flying around on a nine-game slate, and Barrett's 15-point floor could be a nice way to save money on a busy evening in the Association.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Anthony Davis - PF, LAL vs. BKN ($10,400)

I try to avoid talking about studs too often on here, but tonight with AD is too good of an opportunity to pass up. He's starting to take it up a level as the playoffs draw closer, and the seven-time All-Star is averaging 27.4 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 4.0 steals and blocks combined in his last 10 contests. This trend should continue on Tuesday night despite the probable tag following him around on the injury report like it's his shadow. The Nets have a top-six defense versus power forwards this season, but also play at the 10th-fastest pace in the league. A few extra possessions should help the Brow reach the baseline numbers he has set over the past month and allow his owners to return a substantial profit on their investment during tonight's slate.

Aaron Gordon - PF, ORL @ MEM ($7,000)

If I could describe Aaron Gordon's post-All-Star break stats, I would just refer everyone to the NBA Jam announcer saying, "He's on fire!" The 24-year old did not appreciate being snubbed in the dunk contest and has come flying out of the gates for the final third of the regular season by averaging 16.4 points on 48.5 percent shooting, 9.4 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and a 119 offensive rating. Couple his red hot form with the fact that his opponent, Memphis, rank third-worst in the NBA this season against opposing power forwards, and it's a pretty good formula for success. Jaren Jackson Jr. is out for Tuesday's game. That means Gordon will face off against Gorgui Dieng and Josh Jackson in a favorable matchup. Plug him in as a mid-tier forward and watch him put up numbers well above his price point.

Joe Harris - SF, BKN @ LAL ($4,400)

Joe Harris is not getting the respect he deserves from the daily fantasy community, and it's time we change that by getting him in our lineups tonight. Over his last five games, the three-point specialist has averaged 17.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and three makes from downtown. He's produced four games with at least 27 fantasy points in his last six contests, yet his salary for tonight's slate is the lowest it has been since February. Joey Hoops (that's his nickname according to Basketball Reference) can provide some great value at the small forward position where Paul George, Gordon Hayward, and Andrew Wiggins all cost significantly more. Slot the former-Virginia Cavalier into your lineup and enjoy the savings while building the rest of your star-studded roster.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, CLE @ CHI ($8,200)

Drummond returned from a three-game absence on Sunday and promptly put up 28 points and 17 rebounds. Owners should expect more of the same on Tuesday night when he faces the Chicago Bulls in the Windy City. The center has 47 double-doubles this season, and the Bulls give up the third-most points and 13th-most rebounds to opposing big men. The 2012 lottery pick has played 31 games against the Bulls and averaged 13.6 points and 14.3 rebounds in those matchups with his division rival. He has missed five of the previous seven games, so keep an eye on the injury report in case he suffers a setback. If the enticing matchup with the Bulls wasn't enough, the $1,300 in savings over Hassan Whiteside make Drummond my favorite play at the center spot on Tuesday.
