A lot of Fantasy players either set daily lineups, or play in daily Fantasy leagues such as Draft Kings, Fantasy Feud, etc. During the course of the season, on the busiest days in The Association, we'll have a short and sweet blog to help guide you with your lineup decisions.
For Monday, April 1, there are eight games in the NBA. The San Antonio-Memphis (8:00pm ET) and Indiana-L.A. Clippers (10:30pm ET) games will be televised nationally on NBATV.
Meyers Leonard, C, Portland (at NYK): Leonard has turned it up over the past three games, averaging 15.0 points per game (ppg) with 7.3 rebounds per game (rpg) during the impressive span. If you need a big man at a very nice price, Leonard is a great addition to any daily lineup.
Shaun Livingston, PG, Cleveland (at ATL): PG Kyrie Irving (shoulder) returned to the starting lineup Sunday in New Orleans, but he has already been ruled out for the second end of the back-to-back, so that means Livingston will be back in the starting five. Livingston has averaged 12.8 ppg with 4.8 apg over the past eight outings. He is a nice bargain once again in daily Fantasy formats such as DraftKings.com.
Jonas Valanciunas, C, Toronto (vs. DET): Valanciunas has been huge over the past two games, averaging 16.5 ppg with 10.5 rpg and 2.5 bpg during the span. He has scored 10 or more points in each of his past seven games, including a double-double last time out against the Pistons Friday night in Detroit.
Randy Foye, PG/SG, Utah (vs. POR): Foye has 12 or more points in four of his past five games, including 26 points against Brooklyn last time out. However, he hit just one of his five field goal attempts Friday in Portland, finishing with a mere five points in 29 minutes. As such, Foye might be a very risky play in this one.
Brandon Jennings, PG, Milwaukee (vs. CHA): Jennings has really struggled with his shot, knocking down just 15 of his past 60 (25.0 percent) field goals over the past five games. He is averaging just 8.8 ppg with 6.0 apg during the unimpressive stretch, making him a tremendous risk in daily Fantasy leagues likeDraftKings.com until he re-discovers his shooting touch.
Chris Paul, PG, L.A. Clippers (vs. IND): The Pacers allow just 89.7 ppg, which ranks as the top scoring defense in the NBA. CP3 will still get his points, but with one of the highest salaries on the board, it is unlikely he'll exceed expectations in a potentially low-scoring game.
