Notable NBA Game Totals Today, 3/20



Top-Price NBA DFS Core Plays

Domantas Sabonis, C, Sacramento Kings

After a subpar performance, Domantas Sabonis was back to his usual ways of scoring over 50 DKP. He posted a 25-18-5 line against the Memphis Grizzlies shooting a whopping 15 free throws. He has the highest floor and ceiling on the salte and that is why is the most expensive. Like many other games on this slate, you do have to worry about some blowout potential. However, he will still get enough touches to get his tonight.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

SGA has a great matchup at home against a banged-up Utah Jazz team. He has a solid floor in this one with the last three times he has played the Jazz he has scored at least 47 DKP in each matchup. As we go down the stretch here SGA is still playing minutes as he has played at least 33 in four of his last five games. If this game happens to stay close, he should be in line for a big night.

Damian Lillard, PG, Milwaukee Bucks

The matchup for Damian Lillard and the Bucks is a tough one having to go against the Celtics without Giannis Antetokounmpo. Even in a tough matchup, I expect Lillard to have a huge night without Giannis. In the four games without Giannis this season Lillards fantasy points per minute go from 2.37 to 3.1. Plus his usage rate goes from 28% to 36% and that was evident with him going for 64 DKP on Sunday against the Suns. Play Lillard tonight

Mid-Price NBA DFS Core Plays

Tyrese Haliburton, PG, Indiana Pacers

If only Tyrese Haliburton could hit his shots. He is shooting an abysmal percentage from three-point range as of late. Over his last five games, he is just 6-36 from behind the arc and is still averaging over 44 DKP. His price is under 9K on DraftKings and this could be the get-right game against a bad Pistons team. If Haliburton hits shots tonight he could break the slate in this great matchup.

Deandre Ayton, C, Portland Trail Blazers

Deandre Ayton has a good matchup against the Clippers who get beaten up by centers. Ayton has been very good as of late and he is playing a ton of minutes. Over his last four games, he has played at least 37 minutes in each. He is rebounding the ball very well grabbing at least 14 in four of his last five games. With Jerami Grant not expected to play tonight I expect Ayton to continue his success in this and should be in your lineup.

Desmond Bane, PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies rotation is a nightmare tonight as it has been for most of the season. It looks as if they may only have 8-9 players on their team available so Desmond Bane could be in line for big minutes. In just his second game back from injury he played a whopping 37 minutes. I expect that to stay close to the same out of necessity and if he shoots the ball better tonight he should bring you value at just over 8K.

Caris LeVert, PG/SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

This matchup has an abysmal game total of just 204 so you do not want a ton of pieces. However, it is hard to forget what Caris LeVert did in the last game without Donovan Mitchell and company. LeVert played 38 minutes, scored 23 points, dished out 11 assists and grabbed eight rebounds for 55 DKP. The matchup is much worse in this one, but we know he is going to play a lot giving him a solid floor.

Jalen Williams, PF, Oklahoma City Thunder

Jalen Williams seems like a misprice tonight sitting at just $6,900 on DraftKings in a great matchup against the Utah Jazz. He has scored over 45 DKP in back-to-back games in much worse matchups. He has gotten up at least 17 shot attempts in those games and just has great peripheral stats to go along with the scoring. Find a way to get J-Dub in your lineup tonight.

Malik Monk, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings

In the last game with Kevin Huerter leaving early Malik Monk played a whopping 39 minutes. He went off in that time scoring 28 points grabbing six rebounds and dishing out six assists. This matchup against the short-handed Raptors is also a good one having the second-highest point total on the slate. Monk will see a big chunk of time on the floor once again with Huerter out as long as this game can stay close.

GG Jackson, SF/PF, Memphis Grizzlies

I mentioned above that the Grizzlies are short-handed once again in this one, and you should be playing them. Jackson is coming off three straight games of scoring over 30+ DKP. This matchup is also a solid one going against the struggling Warriors who could be without their best defender in Draymond Green. This game could stay close with JJJ and Bane both in the lineup tonight but even if it doesnt, he is still going to have to play 30+ minutes again.

Value-Tier NBA DFS Core Plays

Jaime Jaquez, SF/PF, Miami Heat

Duncan Robinson has already been ruled out tonight, and Jimmy Butler is questionable. I would expect Jaquez to find his way into the starting lineup and play 30+ minutes one way or another. He has played 35 minutes in back-to-back games but has scored under 30 DKP. However, he shot just 9-27 from the floor during that span. If he knocks down more shots tonight he will go over 5x value at his price.

Scoot Henderson, PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Scoot Henderson was a full-go last game but he still only played 30 minutes. That number should tick up in this one as long as he is playing solid on the floor. He struggled some last game going just 4-17 from the floor, so that could have something to do with it. He gets a banged-up Clippers team tonight and has a solid opportunity to bounce back.

Trayce Jackson-Davis, C, Golden State Warriors

With or without Draymond Green in the lineup tonight TJD should be in your player pool. He has played at least 24 minutes in each of the last five games as the backup big. He has scored in double figures in all five of those games and has scored at least 23 DKP. TJD has a very solid floor in this one especially if Green happens to be ruled out.

John Konchar, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies

John Konchar is never going to light the scoreboard up with points. But he will give you some solid peripheral numbers night in and night out. Over his last three games, he has a combined eight steals 10 assists and 21 rebounds. With the Grizzlies short-handed he should play over 30 minutes once again making him a solid floor play.
