NBA Cash Breakdown 3/9

We have five games on tonight’s NBA slate and a few good matchups. The ATL/BKN and MIN/WAS games really stick out to me and honestly even the BOS/LAL game isn’t far behind that. There really isn’t a whole lot to pay up for so we should be able to build some really solid midrange lineups. Let’s get into it.

DK Core 4 

D’Angelo Russell ($8,100) 

John Collins ($7,200)

Jusuf Nurkic ($7,000) 

Jeff Teague ($5,800)

D’ANGELO RUSSELL just has the perfect matchup for his game. He wants to run and operate in the open court. He has been really good against ATL on the season and that is fully expected. On just 27 minutes per game, he is putting up an average of 45 DK points in their two meetings. JOHN COLLINS is just way too cheap for a big going up against BKN. Much like Russell, Collins has crushed this matchup, averaging 47 DK points per game in the two contests. He is averaging a double-double and it is a big one. Nearly 30 points in each of the two games and 11 boards. JUSUF NURKIC is just wrongly priced on DK. He is 9K over on FD and I wouldn’t play him there but 7K here…crazy. I am assuming he is going to be massively owned but I am just going to play him because his upside at that price is absurd. JEFF TEAGUE is going to round us out and that is because I wanted a guard in that game and Teague is still cheap enough where he makes plenty of sense in cash. Finally getting back into the swing of things from the injuries, he is back playing over 30 minutes per night. In two games where he has been over 30 minutes, he has put up 45.25 and 32.25 DK points. We’ll certainly take those in cash games and the WAS matchup is a really good one. 

FD CORE 4

Kyrie Irving ($9,500) 

John Collins ($7,900)

Al Horford ($7,100) 

Rajon Rondo ($7,400)

JOHN COLLINS is the only player that is going to carry over tonight. KYRIE IRVING is probable to play tonight and this is a really nice matchup for him. I have paired both PGs in this game for the core. Kyrie put up 24, 8 and 7 the last time these two played and with the C’s surging and the Lakers floundering a bit, I see no reason why Kyire wouldn’t put up a similar line tonight. AL HORFORD is another Celtic in the core and that is really because I think he makes the most sense at C tonight. KAT and Nurkic are just way too expensive. There is no way I am paying 1K more for Ayton. Allen and Zeller just don’t have the ceiling of Al and he is only about 1K more than them. Not to mention he is only $500 more on FD than DK. We always love that. RAJON RONDO is going to round out our core mainly because it is prime time Rondo against a former team. I have a hard time fading that. He has been playing a bunch and has been over 35 FD points in four of his last five games. I love the PG battle tonight and playing them together in hopes of a back and forth game certainly makes sense to me.
