DFS Picks: It’s a seven-game slate for Tuesday’s NBA schedule tipping off at 7:30 pm EST. The Utah Jazz at the Boston Celtics, the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Miami Heat, the Atlanta Hawks at the Houston Rockets, the New York Knicks at the Philadelphia 76ers, the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chicago Bulls, the New Orleans Pelicans at the Portland Trail Blazers, and lastly the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Los Angeles Lakers.
These are my NBA FANDUEL DFS picks for this Tuesday.
Ben Simmons $8,200
With Joel Embiid out, expect the usage rate to be dominated by Simmons and Tobias Harris. Simmons made his return after missing the last two games due to the NBA COVID Health Protocol, Simmons picked up where he left off, nearly notching a double-double in just 26 minutes of action.
Tomas Satoransky $4,200
He got 25 minutes last game against the Toronto Raptors and ended the night with 10 points, six rebounds, and seven assists. He should get the start.
Victor Oladipo $7,700
Oladipo’s usage will be very high as the Houston Rockets lineup currently is very thin with all the injuries. If Daniel House does not play, Oladipo will certainly have to play nearly 35 minutes or more depending on if the game turns into a blowout or not. For a player with a high usage rate, he is very cheap on this slate.
Immanuel Quickley $5,200
If Derrick Rose and Elfrid Payton are out again, Quickley will get 30+ minutes. Quickley made his first career start in this one and he did his part. He scored at least 20 points for a second straight game while scoring in double figures for a seventh time over the past eight games.
Brandon Ingram $7,700
Ingram and Zion Williamson combined to score 50 points on 20-for-28 shooting from the field, leading the New Orleans Pelicans to an impressive blowout win over a talented Clippers team. Ingram finished the game with 23 points, four rebounds, and five assists.
Danilo Gallinari $5,600
In his last four games, he has averaged 19.5 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 2.0 APG in 31.3 MPG. He has also shot 49 percent from the field while shooting 3.8 three-pointers per game from behind the arc.
Julius Randle $9,200, Tobias Harris $7,800
Randle has gotten over 60 FP in each of his last two games. Randle has had an amazing stretch by pulling down at least 10 rebounds in 10 of the last 12 games while reaching the 20 point mark in eight of those games.
Randle will look to stay hot when the New York Knicks head over to Philadelphia on Tuesday with Joel Embiid out.
Harris had a big game against the San Antonio Spurs even in the blowout. In just 28 minutes, Harris was able to score 23 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and dished out seven assists.
Collins is very productive when he gets center as Clint Capela missed the last game due to injury. Capela is once again questionable against the Houston Rockets who are dealing with a ton of injuries and are on a big losing streak. Collins got 40.1 FP with 22 points and 13 rebounds.
Please monitor Clint Capela’s injury status for the game.
He scored 23 points, had ten rebounds, and four assists against the Memphis Grizzlies. He should draw another start with both Al Horford and Darius Bazley out.
Karl-Anthony Towns $9,700
The Los Angeles Lakers without Anthony Davis who is recovering from a calf injury and Marc Gasol who will be out due to health protocols. Montrezl Harrell is not big enough and Damian Jones has no chance defending Towns which will lead to Towns having a lot of success in the matchup.
Moses Brown $4,300
He fouled out against the Memphis Grizzlies and would have gotten more minutes. Look for him to start with Al Horford out. This is a good matchup for him against the Chicago Bulls.
