NBA DFS Picks: Yahoo Plays and Strategy for Wednesday, March 6

Wednesday brings a fun eight-game slate in the NBA. Among the highlight matchups are the Warriors hosting the Bucks and the Kings taking on the Lakers. Let’s dive into the Yahoo DFS slate and highlight some players to target at each position, as well as a few to potentially avoid.

GUARDS

Caris LeVert, CLE at ATL ($19): The Cavaliers are currently playing without Donovan Mitchell (knee), who will miss at least two more games. LeVert had missed two games with an elbow injury, but he returned Tuesday to log 30 minutes versus the Celtics. Plenty of minutes against a Hawks team that plays at the fourth-fastest pace and has the fourth-worst defensive rating in the league could make LeVert a significant bargain.

Dalano Banton, POR vs. OKC ($10): The Trail Blazers’ depth chart is a mess. With injuries impacting them at multiple positions, Banton has taken on a more significant role. He even started and logged 33 minutes versus the Timberwolves on Monday. With at least 31.4 Yahoo points in two of his last three games, Banton is worth considering in tournament play.

Guard to Avoid

Spencer Dinwiddie, LAL vs. SAC ($21): Dinwiddie hasn’t made much of an impact since joining the Lakers. Not only has his playing time taken a hit, but he has barely been involved in their offense. Over nine games with the team, he is averaging 5.1 points and 5.3 shot attempts per game. LeVert has a much higher upside and a cheaper salary, so there’s no need to take a chance on Dinwiddie.

FORWARDS

DeMar DeRozan, CHI at UTA ($39): With the Bulls missing so many players because of injury, DeRozan has logged 38 minutes per game this season. He comes into this matchup particularly hot, averaging 26.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists over the last 12 games. The Jazz rank in the top 10 in pace of play but in the bottom 10 for defensive rating, so don’t expect them to be able to slow down DeRozan.

John Collins, UTA vs. CHI ($26): Things are ugly up front for the Jazz right now. They will face the Bulls with Lauri Markkanen (quadriceps), Walker Kessler (foot) and Taylor Hendricks (toe) all out. With Markkanen and Kessler out Monday, Collins scored 51.5…
