NBA Cash Breakdown 3/15

We have eight games tonight and there are certainly a couple of games that I love. WAS/CHA, PHI/SAC and NO/POR stand out the most. LAC/CHI and HOU/PHO aren’t far behind though. Obviously, the Lakers have a ton of value with LeBron set to miss tonight so we will be looking there in cash games as well. Also, for HOU, no CP3 means we almost have to play Harden tonight. Let’s get into it.

Tonight, and for much of the regular season, a starts-and-scrubs approach is going to be the way to go on most slates. More and more guys are going to miss for rest purposes or illness. Most of the time it is just to see what the bench/younger guys can do. JAMES HARDEN is just a no-brainer without CP3. I don’t even think I have to get into why that is the case. Just remember back when CP3 missed all that time a short while ago. KYLE KUZMA is going to have to shoulder a lot of the load tonight for LA and he has already killed this DET once this year. In their previous meeting, he put up 41 actual points and scored 45 DK points. I am going to say that two rebounds and zero assists is an outlier and that should have been a 60 DK point night. EMMANUEL MUDIAY is also a no-brainer for me without Dennis Smith. Just last game Smith only played 25 minutes and Mudiay saw 32 and was able to put up 37 DK points. I just really like Mudiay here because his minutes should be secure and when he has had steady minutes, he has produced in the league. Do not screw me Fizdale! ELFRID PAYTON is going to round us out and since Holiday went down Payton has gone for 32, 51 and 57.25 DK points and is coming off of back to back triple-doubles. No clue how you pass up this price and his recent production without Holiday again here. 

FD CORE 4

James Harden ($12,500) 

Kyle Kuzma ($6,300)

Emmanuel Mudiay ($4,800) 

Elfrid Payton ($7,600)

No changes for me tonight. I don’t care what Harden costs, I am playing him regardless. Kuzma and Mudiay are still really cheap and Payton’s price is just fine. I also considered including Jake Layman as Mo Harmless is going to miss tonight, but he is probably going to split time with Hood and possibly even Tuner here. I am also fine with Zubac as a cash play, and I think you may have to go cheaper at C if paying for Harden tonight.
