Yahoo DFS Basketball: Who to Play, Who to Avoid for Wednesday 3/6

We’re primed for an eight-game Wednesday night slate that does have a fair share of low projected totals, with only one game sporting a figure above 230 points. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any defensively vulnerable teams in action, and there are still plenty of favorable positional matchups and competitive game environments to work with.

As customary, we’ll highlight multiple advantageous positional matchups to exploit at each position for your Yahoo Fantasy lineups, as well as a good trio of candidates that may be best to steer clear of due to a combination of circumstances/salary.

Guards

De’Aaron Fox, SAC at LAL ($43): Fox has scored over 50 Yahoo points in five of his last six games, and he posted 56.8 and 50.5 Yahoo points in his two prior meetings with them this season. The Lakers have also allowed the ninth-highest offensive efficiency rating to point guards (28.9) on the season and over 50 Yahoo points per contest to ones in the last 15 games, making Fox an appealing pivot off the appreciably more costly Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ($56).

Caris LeVert, CLE at ATL ($19): LeVert makes for an intriguing value play on a night where the Cavs will not only be down Donovan Mitchell (knee), but quite possibly Max Strus (knee) and Evan Mobley (ankle) as well. The veteran guard has tallies of 44.4 and 54.9 Yahoo points in his last four games, a glimpse of the vast upside he offers at his salary. The Hawks make for good targets as well, considering they’re allowing the fifth-highest offensive efficiency rating to shooting guards (24.5), 47.3 percent shooting to the position, and an Eastern Conference-high 49.1 Yahoo points to twos in the last 15 games as well.

ALSO CONSIDER: Dejounte Murray, ATL vs. CLE ($43)

Guard to Avoid

Spencer Dinwiddie, LAL vs. SAC ($21): Dinwiddie has struggled to acclimate to his new L.A. digs, scoring 16.4 Yahoo points or fewer in every game since the All-Star break. The veteran guard is shooting an abysmal 30.6% over that span. Although he can offer much better efficiency, there’s simply no need to invest in his salary on an eight-game slate with no signs of improvement on the…
