3 NBA FanDuel Studs to Target on 3/28/18
LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
LeBron James put up a fantasy dud (29.7 FanDuel points) last night, but he continued to see a massive workload in that game, and one poor showing shouldn't sour you on what has been an incredible run of production.
The King played 38 minutes on Tuesday, giving him at least 38 in six of his last seven games, with an average of 37 per game on the month. He's also averaging 59.2 FanDuel points per game in March, and he has topped 60.0 in six of his last eight contests.
He was dealing with a really tough matchup last night against the Miami Heat, a squad allowing the league's fewest fantasy points to opposing small forwards. Tonight's matchup against Charlotte puts him in a much better spot to bounce back. The Hornets have allowed the sixth-most FanDuel points per game to opposing small forwards this season, and they have been a particularly good matchup recently. Since the All-Star break, they have played at the league's seventh-fastest pace, while ranking only 20th in defensive rating.
James is the only player priced north of $11,000 tonight, and as long as you can free up the cap space for him, his floor and ceiling are head and shoulders above everyone else. numberFire's models project him to be nearly 10 points clear of any other player on Wednesday's eight-game slate.
