In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for Yahoo on 3/6/17. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays on Yahoo.

Yahoo DFS Guards

Mike Conley - vs BKN ($33)

Mike Conley has over 40 fantasy points in four consecutive games now, and the Brooklyn Nets are horrible defensively. Conley should be able to take advantage of that. Against the Denver Nuggets, he posted just under 50 fantasy points in only 35 minutes on the court. In his last four games, 35 minutes is the lowest amount of court time he has played in a single game. His price tag over at Yahoo is very reasonable, and without too many great value guard options to choose from tonight, Conley makes for a great fantasy option in both 50/50 contests and tournaments.

Rajon Rondo - PG, at DET ($13)

Rajon Rondo is a game-time decision tonight, but if fantasy owners have the wherewithal to roster him, he could make for a great, high-upside option in tournaments. If Rondo does play, he should see around 30 minutes of court time, and in his last five games, he has over 25 fantasy points in three of them, and over 30 fantasy points twice. Against the Denver Nuggets, he posted over 35 fantasy points in only 24 minutes. Rondo has the ability to contribute in all stat categories, and the Detroit Pistons are not good enough defensively to stop him. Again, Rondo is a high-upside tournament option, but he is also dealing with a sprained ankle, so be careful not to roster him, if he is ruled out.

Also Consider: Courtney Lee - SG, at ORL ($11)

 

Yahoo DFS Forwards

Dario Saric - PF, vs MIL ($30)

Dario Saric is the star of the show in Philadelphia right now, and he is going to  continue to post around 40 fantasy points per game for the remainder of the season. He is shooting the ball quite frequently, and due to his size, he is also picking up close to double-digit rebounds every single game. The Milwaukee Bucks are not great defensively, as they have been dealing with injuries this season. It would be unwise to not include Dario Saric as part of the lineup construction process tonight.

Khris Middleton - SF, at PHI ($19)

Khris Middleton has huge upside tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, and Middleton is finally healthy. In his last three games, he has at least 30 minutes in all of them, which goes to show that the Milwaukee Bucks are no longer worried about his injury. Against the Los Angeles Clippers, he posted over 40 fantasy points in 33 minutes, scoring 19 points and dishing out nine assists, on his way to an almost double-double. It would be surprising to see Middleton struggle tonight, and his price tag is still entirely too low. That said, roster him in all leagues.

Also Consider: Marvin Williams - PF, vs IND ($15)

 

Yahoo DFS Centers

Jusuf Nurkic - C, at MIN ($16)

Jusuf Nurkic is too cheap to pass on him tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves love to push the pace of games, and that will be no different tonight. The Portland Trailblazers are going to respond by pushing the pace of the game even faster, which should benefit Nurkic. He will see more rebound and shot opportunities. In his last three games, he has over 30 fantasy points in all of them, posting over 50 fantasy points in 38 minutes against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The upside is there, but so is the consistency. Roster Nurkic in both 50/50 contests and tournaments.

Also Consider: Cody Zeller - C, vs IND ($12)
