There are a lot of cheap value play options to consider across the NBA on Monday. There are nine games on the schedule and injuries and suspensions will have significant impacts on the slate. Let’s get right down to business and highlight a couple of players at each position who could provide value.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/18/19

Reggie Jackson, DET at CLE
FanDuel = $5,600
DraftKings = $5,100

Jackson injured his ankle during a game last week, but luckily for the Pistons and their playoff chances, he didn’t miss a single game. He’s proven to be an excellent running mate for Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond, averaging 18 points, 2.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists across his last 23 contests. The Cavaliers allow the second-most FanDuel points per game and the second-most DraftKings points per game to opposing point guards, leaving Jackson with plenty of upside despite his lack of defensive contributions.

Frank Jackson, NO at DAL
FanDuel = $5,100
DraftKings = $4,600

There won’t be any reinforcements coming for the Pelicans’ backcourt Monday with Jrue Holiday (abdomen) and E’Twaun Moore (quad) still out. Their absences have left Jackson with an expanded role, which has enabled him to average 17.4 points and 3.6 rebounds across the last five games. With the Pelicans playing at the fourth-fastest pace (103.9 possessions per game) in the league, Jackson is someone to consider in tournament play.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/18/19

Damyean Dotson, NY at TOR
FanDuel = $5,900
DraftKings = $5,300

Finding consistent sources for production on the Knicks this season has been a daunting task. With their constantly changing rotations, they remain one of the riskiest teams in DFS. However, Dotson has settled into an expanded role lately by averaging 34 minutes over his last nine games. He’s done nothing to warrant fewer minutes moving forward, averaging 16.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists during that stretch. There is also an opportunity for him to receive more shot attempts if Dennis Smith Jr. (back) is forced to miss his third straight contest.

Jaylen Brown, BOS vs. DEN
FanDuel = $5,200
DraftKings = $4,800

The Celtics incredible depth can cause problems in DFS, but things won’t be as cloudy Monday with Gordon Hayward (neck) listed as doubtful. That should open up added playing time for Brown, who has averaged 16.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and one steal across 13 games in which he has logged at least 30 minutes. If he can at least approach that threshold, he could provide value despite this tough matchup against the Nuggets.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/18/19

Joe Ingles, UTA at WAS
FanDuel = $5,900
DraftKings = $5,700

Targeting players on the Jazz could be a wise strategy based on this matchup. The Wizards play at the eighth-fastest pace (102.6) and allow the second-most points per game (116.9) in the league. While Ingles isn’t necessarily a potent offensive force, his ability to contribute in multiple areas makes him very appealing in this matchup. The Wizards also allow the second-most rebounds per game (47.4) and the third-most assists per game (26).

Mikal Bridges, PHO vs. CHI
FanDuel = $5,100
DraftKings = $4,000

T.J. Warren (ankle) hasn’t played in almost two months and his chances of returning this season are getting bleaker by the day. Since the Suns have nothing left to play for but a high draft pick, it makes no sense to push Warren to return. His absence has helped free up minutes for several players, Bridges included. While not known for his offensive game, Bridges has a somewhat higher scoring upside in this contest since the Bulls have allowed an average of 119.8 points across their last eight games.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/18/19

Bam Adebayo, MIA at OKC
FanDuel = $5,800
DraftKings = $5,300

It looks like Adebayo has officially displaced Hassan Whiteside as the Heat’s starting center. It’s hard to argue with the results since he’s averaged 12.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.1 blocks across 10 games since being placed into that role. The Heat also won six of those games to help them hold onto the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Maxi Kleber, DAL vs. NO
FanDuel = $5,200
DraftKings = $4,800

The main beneficiary of all the moves the Mavericks made at the trade deadline has been Dwight Powell, who has thrived with the adding playing time. Kleber has taken longer to get things rolling, but he’s showing signs lately with three double-doubles over his last four games. He hasn’t always been productive despite significant minutes, so he’s a bit of a risky option. However, this might be a night to take a chance on him in tournament play based on the up-tempo pace at which the Pelicans play.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/18/19

Jakob Poeltl, SA vs. GS
FanDuel = $5,300
DraftKings = $4,700

The Spurs come into this matchup riding an eight-game winning streak. Maybe it’s not a coincidence that the streak coincides with Poeltl’s addition to the starting five. With Pau Gasol no longer in the fold, Poeltl has taken advantage of his new role by averaging 7.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, one steal and 2.4 blocks. There’s a chance that DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) won’t take the floor, which would take a significant load off of Poeltl on the defensive end. Don’t be afraid to take a chance on him at this price.

Ante Zizic, CLE vs. DET
FanDuel = $4,300
DraftKings = $4,000

It will be slim pickings for the Cavaliers up front with Tristan Thompson (foot) and Larry Nance Jr. (ribs) expected to remain sidelined. Considering they have to face Andre Drummond, they are going to need Zizic’s size in the middle. There is some concern that he could get into foul trouble, but if he can avoid it, he could see significant playing time and provide value based on his cheap price on both sites.

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

Thursday's are usually tough to find cheaper value plays, but we have a busier than normal six-game slate tonight. There is a ton of top-tier talent on the board, so luckily there are still a couple of cheap options at each position to help balance out your budget.

Thursday’s are usually tough to find cheaper value plays, but we have a busier than normal six-game slate tonight. There is a ton of top-tier talent on the board, so luckily there are still a couple of cheap options at each position to help balance out your budget. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our NBA Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

D.J. Augustin, ORL vs. CLE
FanDuel = $4,600
DraftKings = $4,400

Augustin often makes this list, and for good reason. He’s a starter at a position where his team has very little talent, which helps him receive steady playing time. He also has some weapons around him in Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier, which helps him rack up assists as a point guard. After recording 19 points, five rebounds and five assists against these same Cavaliers less than two weeks ago, he’s one of the safer cheap options on the slate.

Tyus Jones, MIN at UTA
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $4,200

The Timberwolves just can’t stay healthy. Specifically, they’ve had problems keeping Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow) on the floor. They both sat out Tuesday against the Nuggets, which forced Jones into the starting lineup. Across nine starts this season, Jones has averaged 10.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 2.3 steals. If Teague and Rose are out again, get Jones into your entry.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

Wesley Matthews, IND vs. OKC
FanDuel = $4,600
DraftKings = $4,200

Matthews has provided the Pacers with a much-needed offensive spark, averaging 13.5 points and 2.6 three-pointers across his last 10 games. The problem is, he hasn’t contributed a ton in other areas with averages of just 2.5 rebounds and two assists. However, he has a high minutes floor and will face a Thunder team that plays at the third-fastest pace (104 possessions per game) in the league, so he’s at least someone to consider.

Monte Morris, DEN vs. DAL
FanDuel = $3,900
DraftKings = $3,500

The Nuggets have been one of the biggest surprise teams in the league. The surprise isn’t that they are set up to be in the playoffs, it’s that they are still battling with the Warriors for the top overall seed in the West. One of the main reasons for their success has been the play of Morris and Malik Beasley off the bench. However, once Isaiah Thomas returned, the team struggled to integrate him into the rotation. They had lost four of their last five games, which contributed to them pulling Thomas from the rotation Tuesday against the Timberwolves. Morris shined in that contest with 16 points, five rebounds and six assists. With Thomas out of the picture right now, Morris could be a steal at this price.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

Jae Crowder, UTA vs. MIN
FanDuel = $5,400
DraftKings = $5,100

The Timberwolves have allowed an average of 121.2 points across their last 15 games, so hunting for cheaper options on the Jazz could pay off. Crowder is one of their key reserves and despite shooting a paltry 39.4 percent from the field, he’s been productive with averages of 12 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists for the season. His upside isn’t off the charts, but that doesn’t mean that he should be ignored.

Keita Bates-Diop, MIN at UTA
FanDuel = $4,200
DraftKings = $3,500

Injuries at point guard aren’t the only thing that’s ailing the Timberwolves right now. Andrew Wiggins (thigh) and Luol Deng (Achilles) have missed each of their last three games, which has opened up more minutes for Bates-Diop. With the added playing time, he was able to average 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, one steal and one block. Deng is out Thursday and Wiggins is questionable, so if he also sits out, Bates-Diop is a great option in tournament play.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

Derrick Favors, UTA vs. MIN
FanDuel = $6,400
DraftKings = $5,500

The absence of Rudy Gobert for a sizable chunk of games last year helped Favors average 28 minutes a game. With Gobert healthy this year, Favors is only logging 24 minutes a night. However, his usage rate jumped up slightly to 19.1 percent and he’s an excellent rebounder, which has enabled him to average 11.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. While not overly cheap, this is a matchup that provides Favors with added upside.

Marcus Morris, BOS vs. SAC
FanDuel = $5,100
DraftKings = $4,500

With the Celtics being dismantled by the Clippers on Monday, Morris scored just 11 points in 25 minutes. They’ll look to rebound at home in what is a favorable matchup from an offensive perspective since the Kings allow the fifth-most points per game (114.8) in the league. Jayson Tatum (shoulder) is expected to return for this contest, but Morris still has a sizeable enough role to warrant consideration for your entry.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/14/19

Marc Gasol, TOR vs. LAL
FanDuel = $6,500
DraftKings = $5,900

This is the night to play Gasol. The Raptors depth has dealt a blow to his value with him playing limited minutes and moving in and out of the starting five. There are no worries about his role for this game, though, with Serge Ibaka out due to a suspension. The Lakers have been decimated by injuries and play at the fifth-fastest pace (103.7), leaving Gasol with plenty of upside.

Mason Plumlee, DEN vs. DAL
FanDuel = $4,700
DraftKings = $4,400

The Nuggets are a stellar team at home and the Mavericks are awful on the road, so this game could get out of hand early. That could be good news for Plumlee, who would likely see added minutes in garbage time. Across 35 games in which Plumlee has logged at least 20 minutes, he’s averaged 10.4 points, eight rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks.

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

It's been a fairly quiet start to the week for the NBA and things don't really pick up Wednesday with just six games on the schedule. We still have another opportunity to win some cash in DFS, though, so let's highlight a couple of cheaper value plays at each position that could provide value.

It’s been a fairly quiet start to the week for the NBA and things don’t really pick up Wednesday with just six games on the schedule.

Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our NBA Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

D.J. Augustin, ORL at WAS
FanDuel = $4,300
DraftKings = $4,300

Augustin continues to churn out respectable stat lines, averaging 11.2 points, three rebounds and 5.1 assists across his last 10 games. With very little talent behind him at point guard, his role is safe moving forward. The Wizards play at the seventh-fastest pace (102.8 possessions per game) and allow the second-most points per game (117.2) in the league, so this could be a matchup to take advantage of by using Augustin for your entry.

Ish Smith, DET at MIA
FanDuel = $4,300
DraftKings = $4,100

Smith isn’t going to grab many headlines playing on a team that includes Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond, but that doesn’t mean he’s not crucial for the Pistons to be successful. He’s played well off the bench down the stretch, averaging 9.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists over his last 13 games. When these two teams met a little over two weeks ago, Smith destroyed the Heat for 22 points and nine assists. At this cheap price, he’s an intriguing option in tournament play.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

Delon Wright, MEM at ATL
FanDuel = $5,300
DraftKings = $4,600

The Grizzlies are normally not a high-scoring team in large part because they play at the slowest pace (96.8). However, they’ll need to pick things up Wednesday considering the Hawks play at the second-fastest pace (104.4). That’s good news for Wright, who has carved out an important role off the bench since being acquired from the Raptors. Even though his upside isn’t overly high when Mike Conley is healthy, Wright could still provide value.

Andre Iguodala, GS at HOU
FanDuel = $4,300
DraftKings = $4,000

This is the highlight game of the night in what is a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals. Unfortunately for the Warriors, Kevin Durant (ankle) will not take the floor. That should open up more minutes for Iguodala, especially considering the small lineups that the Rockets like to deploy. He’s clearly not going to get a ton of offensive looks with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins still in the fold, but his ability to contribute in multiple areas could make him worth the risk in tournament play.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

Jae Crowder, UTA at PHO
FanDuel = $5,200
DraftKings = $5,000

After a stunning 18-game losing streak, the Suns have won five of their last seven games. They even defeated the Bucks and Warriors during that stretch, so they might actually be able to keep this game close at home against the Jazz. Crowder should receive plenty of playing time off the bench regardless, leaving him as a viable cheaper option to target considering the Suns allow the third-most points per game (115.9).

Mikal Bridges, PHO vs. UTA
FanDuel = $4,900
DraftKings = $4,000

Few players can remain DFS relevant despite not scoring much, but Bridges is doing just that. He’s only averaged 7.6 points across his last 10 games, but he’s helped make up for the lack of offense by averaging 3.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and two steals during that stretch. While that’s nothing to write home about, that does bring him into the discussion for viable cheap options at small forward.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

P.J. Tucker, HOU vs. GS
FanDuel = $4,800
DraftKings = $3,800

Speaking of players who don’t score much, enter Tucker. He’s only averaging 7.7 points a game this year and has never averaged more than 9.4 points during any season of his career. However, his defensive prowess makes him a huge reason for the Rockets’ success and enables him to log a ton of minutes. That’s helped him average 6.1 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.8 three-pointers a night. After recording 18 points, 10 rebounds, four steals and two blocks against the Warriors a couple of weeks ago, he makes a lot of sense in DFS for their rematch.

Rodions Kurucs, BKN at OKC
FanDuel = $4,600
DraftKings = $4,600

Just when the Nets finally became healthy in their backcourt, their frontcourt suffered an injury with DeMarre Carroll (knee) ruled out for this game. That could open up a few added minutes for Kurucs, who is already averaging 13.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, one steal and one block across his last five games. It also helps his upside that the Thunder play at the third-fastest pace (104.1) in the league.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/13/19

Steven Adams, OKC vs. BKN
FanDuel = $6,900
DraftKings = $6,300

If you’re playing on FanDuel, viable cheap center options are few and far between. Let’s come up in price a little bit for this creampuff matchup that Adams has against the Nets. The Nets simply can’t slow down centers, allowing the fourth-most DraftKings points per game and the fifth-most FanDuel points per game to the position. Adams has five double-doubles across his last seven contests and should be a safe bet to make it six out of eight by the time this game is over.

Joakim Noah, MEM at ATL
FanDuel = $4,800
DraftKings = $4,700

If you are going to chase a cheap center, why not go after the Hawks? With how poorly they defend across the board, they could produce several fantasy-friendly stat lines for players on the Grizzlies. Even with Jonas Valanciunas healthy and starting each of the last eight games, Noah has still been able to average 10.3 points, 7.9 rebounds, four assists and 1.3 blocks over that stretch.

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

There will be a lot of bad teams taking the floor during Tuesday's seven-game slate in the NBA. There is the potential for a few blowouts, but that doesn't mean you can't create a winning DFS lineup. The post NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19 appeared first on Lineup...

*Mike Barner — @rotomikebarner*

There will be a lot of bad teams taking the floor during Tuesday’s seven-game slate in the NBA. There is the potential for a few blowouts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a winning DFS lineup. Let’s examine a couple of players at each position who could provide value. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our NBA Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

Collin Sexton, CLE at PHI
FanDuel = $5,400
DraftKings = $4,900

The Cavaliers pulled out a shocking win against the Raptors on Monday and will follow that up with another matchup against one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. However, unlike Monday, Kevin Love won’t play in this game due to rest. He’s by far their best offensive player, so there are going to be a lot of extra shots to go around. Enter Sexton, who already has the third-highest usage rate (25.3) percent on the team. He has secure playing time even if this game becomes a blowout, making him a great option to consider.

Frank Jackson, NO vs. MIL
FanDuel = $5,000
DraftKings = $5,100

It will be slim pickings at guard again for the Pelicans with Jrue Holiday (abdomen) and E’Twaun Moore (quadriceps) out. Over the last two games that they have missed, Jackson has averaged 21.5 points and six rebounds in 35 minutes a night. Both of these teams are inside the top-six in the league in pace of play, making Jackson an appealing option despite his increasing price tag.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

Wesley Matthews, IND vs. NY
FanDuel = $4,600
DraftKings = $4,500

Matthews is coming off of his worst game since joining the Pacers after he scored five points and grabbed four rebounds against the Sixers on Sunday. He was only 2-for-7 from the field in a game where the Pacers struggled by scoring just 89 points as a team. Before that, Matthews had averaged 14.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals across his last eight contests. This is a favorable spot for him to have a bounce-back performance against the lowly Knicks.

Wayne Selden Jr., CHI vs. LAL
FanDuel = $3,700
DraftKings = $3,300

It looks like Zach LaVine (knee) is set to miss his second straight game. With the Bulls having nothing left to play for, it makes no sense for them to push him to play if he’s not completely healthy. Selden didn’t start with LaVine out Sunday against the Pistons, but he exploded for 18 points, four rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes off the bench. With the Lakers playing at the fourth-fastest pace (103.7 possessions per game) in the league, Selden could be worth the risk in tournament play since he’s near the minimum price on both sites.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

Nikola Mirotic, MIL at NO
FanDuel = $5,200
DraftKings = $4,700

Mirotic has experienced a steep decline in playing time since being dealt to the Bucks, averaging 22 minutes a game compared to 29 minutes a contest as a member of the Pelicans. He still has a 20.4 percent usage rate, though, and is averaging 2.5 three-pointers a contest. This could be one of his better offensive performances since joining the team based on the high-scoring potential for this game.

Keita Bates-Diop, MIN at DEN
FanDuel = $4,100
DraftKings = $3,400

The Timberwolves are a team to closely monitor for injury updates. Andrew Wiggins (thigh) and Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) are listed as questionable while Luol Deng (Achilles) has already been ruled out. If Wiggins can’t play, that opens up a lot of minutes for Bates-Diop. He’s started both of the last two games with Wiggins and Deng out, averaging 15 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists. While this isn’t the best of matchups, Bates-Diop’s potential for added playing time brings him into the discussion in tournament play.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

Taj Gibson, MIN at DEN
FanDuel = $5,500
DraftKings = $5,600

If Towns can’t take the floor again, it’s hard to pass up on Gibson. He thrived in a starting role Sunday, scoring 25 points to go along with eight rebounds, two steals and a block in 30 minutes. Over 10 games in which Gibson has logged at least 30 minutes this season, he’s averaged 15.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.1 blocks. Temper your expectations a little bit due to this matchup, but he could still be very productive.

Al-Farouq Aminu, POR at LAC
FanDuel = $4,700
DraftKings = $4,300

This matchup between the Blazers and Clippers is the only game between two teams with winning records. Both teams are playing well right now, especially the Clippers, who have won five straight games. The Clippers also play at the ninth-fastest pace (102.5), which should leave some added opportunities for Aminu to be productive. His upside is limited, but his floor is also relatively high at this price based on his starting role. Don’t be surprised if he at least approaches a double-double.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/12/19

Moritz Wagner, LAL at CHI
FanDuel = $5,000
DraftKings = $3,300

The Lakers disappointing season is winding to a close with several players dealing with injuries. There is a chance that Kyle Kuzma (ankle) returns against the Bulls, but Lonzo Ball (ankle) and Brandon Ingram (shoulder) are done for the year. Wagner entered the starting five Saturday against the Celtics and excelled with 22 points, six rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes. Kuzma’s potential return could somewhat eat into Wagner’s minutes, but the Lakers will likely give him extended run down the stretch regardless. His price on FanDuel isn’t all that cheap, but he’s extremely appealing on DraftKings.

Ante Zizic, CLE at PHI
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $3,700

Not only will Love be on the bench, but Larry Nance Jr. (chest) and Tristan Thompson (foot) could be out again, as well. That doesn’t leave them with many options up front. Zizic is set up to be very active in this game after posting 17 points and seven rebounds Monday. There is the possibility that he could get into some early foul trouble facing Joel Embiid, but Zizic’s upside is promising.

Monday’s six-game slate will have the Raptors, Celtics, Rockets, Thunder and Jazz all in action, which means there are plenty of top-tier options in DFS. In order to fit them into your entry, you’ll need to find the right mix with cheaper value plays. Here are a couple at each position who could provide value.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/11/19

Reggie Jackson, DET at BKN
FanDuel = $5,300
DraftKings = $5,000

This is a big game between two teams battling for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Whoever finishes as the seventh seed will have to face the Bucks or Raptors, which is an unenviable task. The Pistons come into this matchup having won eight of their last 10 games on the shoulders of the strong play of Jackson, Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin. Jackson has been on a hot streak for even longer than that, averaging 18.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists across his last 19 games.

Jeremy Lin, TOR at CLE
FanDuel = $3,600
DratfKings = $3,700

The Raptors haven’t been shy about resting players this year, especially Kawhi Leonard. He didn’t play Sunday in the first game of their back-to-back set, but he should return for this contest. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them hold out Kyle Lowry, especially considering their lowly opponent in the Cavaliers. If that scenario were to unfold, Lin could provide value at near the minimum price on both sites.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/11/19

Bogdan Bogdanovic, SAC at WAS
FanDuel = $5,900
DraftKings = $5,500

This should be one of the highest-scoring games of the night with both of these teams inside the top-eight in the league in pace of play. Even though Bogdanovic has bounced in and out of the starting five, he’s still averaged 13.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.6 steals across his last 12 games. The key was that he averaged 31 minutes a game during that stretch, so expect him to have plenty of opportunities to contribute across the board again Monday.

Luke Kennard, DET at BKN
FanDuel = $5,100
DraftKings = $4,700

While Kennard might not be the biggest of names, his emergence of late has helped key the Pistons improved play. Finally given a larger role with Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson no longer in town, Kennard has averaged 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists across his last 12 games. He’s been deadly from behind the arc, hitting on 48.6 percent of his three-point attempts during that stretch. The Nets do defend the three-point line well, but Kennard’s increased playing time still makes him someone to consider.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/11/19

Jabari Parker, WAS vs. SAC
FanDuel = $5,800
DraftKings = $5,400

As we continue to target players in this game, Parker checks in as an intriguing option at small forward. After getting off to an inconsistent start with his new team, he’s settled down to average 15.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and three assists over his last six games. His 60.9 percent shooting from the field during that stretch is not sustainable, which does make him a bit of a risky option. However, facing the porous Kings’ defense might not be the game that starts his regression.

Jae Crowder, UTA vs. OKC
FanDuel = $5,600
DraftKings = $4,800

While Derrick Favors continues to start for the Jazz, he’s only averaging 24 minutes a game. That helps leave added time on the floor for Crowder, who is averaging 28 minutes a night. He’s turned into one of their key reserves after being acquired at the trade deadline last year and will continue to get plenty of playing time with the Jazz fighting for playoff seeding. That’s big for his value Monday since the Thunder play at the third-fastest pace (104.1 possessions per game) in the league.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/11/19

Marcus Morris, BOS at LAC
FanDuel = $5,100
DraftKings = $4,500

The big injury situation to monitor heading into this game is whether or not Jayson Tatum will play. He’s currently listed as a game-time decision due to shoulder soreness, which may have been the reason why he only scored six points on seven shots attempts against the Lakers on Saturday. If he were to sit this game out, that could lead to added minutes for Morris, who is averaging 18.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 18 games in which he has logged at least 30 minutes.

Frank Kaminsky, CHA at HOU
FanDuel = $4,500
DraftKings = $4,400

After playing in at least 75 games in each of his first three seasons in the league, Kaminsky has appeared in just 39 games this year. Just when it looked like he was out of the rotation as the season comes to a close, Kaminsky has averaged 22 minutes across their last five games. He’s made his case to stay on the floor, averaging 14.6 points and 5.4 rebounds during that stretch. With Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (knee) still battling injuries, Kaminsky could continue to see more playing time in this matchup.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/11/19

Ivica Zubac, LAC vs. BOS
FanDuel = $5,400
DraftKings = $4,300

The Clippers have had a revolving door at the starting center spot for the majority of the season. They’ve preferred to keep Montrezl Harrell as a member of their second unit since he’s played so well in that role. However, Marcin Gortat and Boban Marjanovic left them with very little production as starters. After moving on from both players, the Clippers have locked Zubac into the starting lineup after acquiring him from the Lakers. With averages of 8.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and one block since joining the team, Zubac makes for a viable cheaper option at center Monday.

Ante Zizic, CLE vs. TOR
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $3,900

The Cavaliers likely can’t wait for this season to be over. Injuries have played a key role in their struggles all season, which hasn’t changed down the stretch. Their frontcourt will be especially thin for this game with both Tristan Thompson (foot) and Larry Nance Jr. (chest) ruled out. Not only is that good news for Kevin Love, but their absences should also benefit Zizic, who has already averaged 10.8 points and 7.6 rebounds across his last 17 games.

With only two games in the NBA on Thursday, viable cheap value play options are few and far between. We’ll have to go a little higher up the price scale to find quality options to fill out your entry. Here are a couple of players at each position that could prove to provide added bang for your buck.

POINT GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/7/19

Darren Collison, IND at MIL
FanDuel = $7,000
DraftKings = $5,800

Not known for his offensive output, Collison has scored at least 21 points in three of his last five games. He’s also remained an excellent source for assists, averaging 7.1 dimes across his last 10 games. The Bucks are a good defensive team, but at least Collison should have some added opportunities to provide value since they play at the sixth-fastest pace (103.1 possessions per game) in the league.

Cory Joseph, IND at MIL
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $3,800

If you’re looking for a cheap dart throw at point guard, Joseph might be your man. Collison doesn’t spend a ton of time on the floor, which has allowed Joseph to average 26 minutes a night. While his numbers don’t jump off the page, he’s still managed to average eight points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists across his last six games.

SHOOTING GUARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/7/19

Malcolm Brogdon, MIL vs. IND
FanDuel = $6,500
DraftKings = $5,600

Playing alongside the likes of Giannis Atentokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe, Brogdon often doesn’t receive the credit that he deserves. He’s only in his third season in the league and is having a stellar season with averages of 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists. His 20.7 percent usage rate is only fifth-highest on the team, but he’s been extremely efficient by shooting 51.1 percent from the field and 93.2 percent from the charity stripe. Even though the Pacers are an excellent defensive team, Brogdon is still a great option Thursday.

Wesley Matthews, IND at MIL
FanDuel = $4,700
DraftKings = $4,300

Of all the cheap options on the slate, Matthews might be one of the safest to deploy. He’s averaged 32 minutes a game since joining the Pacers and should once again spend plenty of time on the court. He’s averaging a whopping 7.2 three-point attempts per game since joining the team and converting them at a rate of 40 percent. With the up-tempo pace at which the Bucks play, Matthews should be a reliable source for offense once again.

SMALL FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/7/19

Moe Harkless, POR vs. OKC
FanDuel = $6,000
DraftKings = $4,200

This should be a fun game between with the Blazers and Thunder since they are two of the three teams tied for the third seed in the Western Conference. With gaining home court advantage a goal for both teams, this could have a playoff-type atmosphere. Harkless has stepped up for the Blazers as they look to improve their seeding by averaging 12.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.9 steals across his last eight games. Evan Turner (personal) will not play in this game, which should leave Harkless with even more playing time. His price isn’t great on FanDuel, but he could be a steal on DraftKings.

Nikola Mirotic, MIL vs. IND
FanDuel = $5,500
DraftKings = $4,800

With one of the best starting fives in the league, the Bucks made a big addition to their bench by bringing over Mirotic from the Pelicans. He’s starting to settle into his new role, averaging 13 points, six rebounds and one block across his last six games. He’s only averaged 23 minutes a game during that stretch, but his usage rate of 21.4 percent with the Bucks is almost identical to the mark that he posted with the Pelicans, so he still has significant offensive upside.

POWER FORWARDS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/7/19

Thaddeus Young, IND at MIL
FanDuel = $6,600
DraftKings = $5,700

The Pacers frontcourt will be thin once again with Domantas Sabonis (ankle) set to miss his fifth straight game. Young has put up some excellent all-around numbers in his absence by averaging 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals during that stretch. The key is that he logged 34 minutes a night across those four games, which is up from his season average of 31 minutes a night. He won’t break your budget on either site and should have a relatively high floor.

Al-Farouq Aminu, POR vs. OKC
FanDuel = $4,900
DraftKings = $3,900

Aminu will never be mistaken for a top offensive option. He’s scored seven points or fewer in three of his last five games and is only averaging 9.4 points a night for the season. A lot of that can be attributed to his meager 13.1 percent usage rate. However, he’s shooting 36.4 percent from behind the arc and provides a strong presence on the boards. He’s also played extremely well against the Thunder this season, averaging 11 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists across their previous three meetings.

CENTERS

NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Lineup Picks for 3/7/19

Steven Adams, OKC at POR
FanDuel = $7,000
DraftKings = $5,900

Adams has broken out of his recent slump to record a double-double in four straight games. Three of those came with Paul George sidelined, but he also had a couple of tough matchups against the Spurs and Grizzlies, making that stretch even more impressive. The Thunder made a key addition by bringing in Markieff Morris after he was bought out by the Pelicans, although they still don’t have a ton of talent at center behind Adams. Look for him to play heavy minutes and once again at least approach a double-double.

Enes Kanter, POR vs. OKC
FanDuel = $4,500
DraftKings = $4,000

Speaking of teams that needed to add depth, the Blazers jumped at the chance to add Kanter after he was bought out by the Knicks. Even though they have a great starting center in Jusuf Nurkic, Kanter adds an efficient scoring punch to their second unit. His playing time has been limited, but Kanter has still managed to average 11.3 points and 6.8 rebounds since joining the team. The cheap center options are not good Thursday, especially if you are playing on FanDuel, so Kanter stands out as someone to possibly take a chance on if you need to save money at the position.
