Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday– March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder
Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday’s matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook’s usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a number of ways. We know he can score and rebound but his passing and defensive numbers are all underrated. Boogie has the sheer talent to produce 50 fantasy points on a nightly basis even on this stacked Warriors team.
Rajon Rondo, PG, Los Angeles Lakers
Rondo is flirting with a triple-double since being inserted into the starting lineup. He is averaging 15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 12.5 dimes, and 2 steals over the past two. The Phoenix game is the second of a back-to-back but the Lakers do not really have someone behind Rondo as of this moment. Bradon Ingram’s salary has started to go up but Rondo’s contribution is largely rewarded ye, at least salary-wise.
Who To Avoid
Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans
You should know the drill with AD as of now. While he’s busy playing 20 minutes a night, sometimes he is also out. On Saturday, it is the latter.
Myles Turner, C, Indiana Pacers
Turner is struggling a little bit after missing almost two weeks and had a 3-points, 1-rebound dud against Minnesota the last time. Once he gets going again, which I think will be soon, then you can start picking him up again for DFS.
Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors
Thompson is questionable going into Saturday’s nationally-televised game against Philly with knee soreness. He still can play but knowing Steve Kerr, he may hold out Klay in Warriors’ third game in four nights.
