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 Tuesday, 3/2, NBA DFS action.
FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA
Russell Westbrook Fantasy
Target Russell Westbrook, PG, Washington Wizards ($9,600): Russell Westbrook is a nightly triple-double threat, and he's been on a tear of late. Over his last six games, he's averaging 23.0 points, 11.5 rebounds and 9.7 assists along with 51.8 FanDuel fantasy points per game (well above his season average of 45.2). The Memphis Grizzlies simply don't have any guards who can physically stop Westbrook, which makes it hard to see him slowing down his production tonight.
John Collins Fantasy
Target John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks ($7,800): The Atlanta Hawks just fired their head coach, and that's usually a recipe for a resounding win. This makes John Collins an even more attractive option against the Miami Heat. He just burned Miami for 34 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks in their previous meeting two days ago, totaling a season-high 58.5 fantasy points. The Heat don't have any bigs athletic enough to keep up with Collins outside of Bam Adebayo, so expect the Hawks' young star to have another standout performance for his new coach.
Jakob Poeltl Fantasy
Target Jakob Poeltl, C, San Antonio Spurs ($5,800): Jakob Poeltl is a great value target tonight. With the team currently dealing with several COVID-19 absences, Poeltl has seen 32.3 minutes per game over his last five contests. And he's produced with an average of 35.8 fantasy points in that same span, well above his season average of 23.5. With his recent uptick in playing time and production, he's a steal at his salary on Tuesday.
Jamal Murray Fantasy
Avoid Jamal Murray, PG, Denver Nuggets ($8,500): Jamal Murray is capable of having explosive games, but he's fallen short recently. Murray hasn't eclipsed his season average of 35.6 fantasy points in either of his last two contests, and turnovers have plagued him recently, racking up 11 TOs in the last three games. On the second night of a back-to-back and against a Milwaukee Bucks team that's regained its mojo, Murray is a risk to play up to his pricetag.
Paul George Fantasy
Avoid Paul George, SG, Los Angeles Clippers ($7,900): Paul George has all the talent to be a nightly top fantasy scorer, but it's well known that he can have off games. George is averaging just 14.0 points over his last three outings, with 16 points being his high during that span despite chucking up 14.7 field goal attempts per contest. He's also shot an abysmal 21.1% from 3-point land during this recent stretch of games. Against a Boston Celtics team in the top 10 for fewest opponent points and 3-pointers allowed per game, this doesn't seem like the bounce-back matchup George desperately needs.
