NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 3/23/19

Damian Lillard has been red-hot with C.J. McCollum out of action, and he has a nice matchup today against the Pistons. Who else should you roster?

If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and -- depending on injury news -- even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.

With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer, and a ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.

We'll also be coming at you with this primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.

Let's take a look at who you should target on today's main slate, which starts at 7:00 p.m. EST and features seven games.

Best of the Best

Damian Lillard ($10,800): Is he expensive? Absolutely, there is no doubt about that. Is he crushing value without C.J. McCollum on the court? Yes, no doubt about that, either. Dame has been a monster over the last three games, scoring 34, 30, and 33 real-world points with fantasy outputs of 50.7, 60.9, and 62.0 FanDuel points. He is averaging 1.31 FanDuel points per minute over the last month and should play as many minutes as needed to secure a victory over the visiting Detroit Pistons. He's got a huge ceiling tonight along with a great floor.
