The NBA season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.
And be sure to checkout our nightly against the spread (ATS) picks as well.
Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Friday, 3/20, NBA DFS action.
FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA
Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy
Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,400): With a slim DFS slate on Saturday, shelling out for Giannis Antetokounmpo is among the safer options. Giannis has put up 50-plus FanDuel fantasy points in each of his last six games, including performances of 64.7 and 73 points. He can do no wrong as of late, with three triple-doubles in his last four games. Matching up against the San Antonio Spurs tonight, their wing defenders are too small to slow him down, and their frontcourt players aren't athletic enough to hang with the two-time MVP. You should have little worries about Antetokounmpo failing to live up to his pricetag.
Tobias Harris Fantasy
Target Tobias Harris, PF, Philadelphia 76ers ($8,300): The Philadelphia 76ers have arguably the best matchup on Saturday, drawing the lowly Sacramental Kings. Sacramento is giving up the second-most points per game (119.4) to opponents this season, which is great news for Tobias Harris. The 76ers forward has scored above his season PPG average of 20.5 in two of his last three outings, enjoying an increased offensive role with Joel Embiid sidelined. He's also put up 42-plus fantasy points in each of his last three games, too. With the Kings on the second night of a back-to-back, fatigue may play a factor, opening up even more holes to attack this porous defense, so Harris is in a prime position to thrive.
Andrew Wiggins Fantasy
Target Andrew Wiggins, SF, Golden State Warriors ($5,200): Andrew Wiggins could be a serious value option tonight. On Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies, Wiggins exploded for a season-high 65.6 fantasy points, putting up 40 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals with Stephen Curry sidelined. Now, these two teams will face each other again, and Curry is likely to miss tonight's matchup as well. That opens the door for Wiggins to assert himself on a Golden State Warriors team lacking true offensive threats, making him an intriguing target.
Ja Morant Fantasy
Avoid Ja Morant, PG, Memphis Grizzlies ($7,500): On the other side of the floor, Ja Morant is an avoid tonight. He struggled in Friday's game, playing only 29 minutes and contributing just 14 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. This has been a down stretch for Morant, who's failed to score more than 25 fantasy points in each of his last three games, thanks to an average of just 14.0 PPG in that timespan. He's shooting poorly from the field (38.5%) and hasn't hit a shot from deep in three games, so it's hard to imagine him breaking out of his rut after struggling against Golden State last night.
Gordon Hayward Fantasy
Avoid Gordon Hayward, SF, Charlotte Hornets ($7,200): Gordon Hayward finds himself in a funk as well. Hayward has scored just 7 points in back-to-back games, totaling 50.6 fantasy points over his last two contests. With a season average of 36.3 fantasy PPG, Hayward's drop-off is notable. Now, he'll try to break out of his struggles against the Los Angeles Clippers, who are giving up the sixth-fewest PPG (109.6). Facing elite wing defenders in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George tonight, don't expect this to be the game Hayward gets back on track.
