Today’s DraftKings NBA DFS picks go position by position looking for the biggest values and top picks you need to know.
The NBA features a huge 10-game slate to start your weekend. It’s a big night with some key injuries and interesting matchups. We’ll see Dame vs. Trae, Ja vs. Joker, and Kevin Durant’s second game for the Suns. Let’s dig in and get some DraftKings NBA DFS picks for March 3.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks: Top Guards
Damian Lillard – $11,600: Damian Lillard has been red hot. He’s scored 40 or more in three of his last five games, including that monster 71-point effort last week against Houston. Lillard gets to play the Hawks tonight and he dropped 42 on them in their previous meeting this season. Anfernee Simons is out tonight and this game has the highest point total of the entire slate at 241.5. Dame might take 30 shots again tonight. He comes at a steep price but he may drop 50 on the Hawks tonight.
Jaylen Brown – $8,700: Brown is a great play tonight against a Nets club that has been loose defensively of late, giving up 142, 118, 129, and 131 points over their last four games. Brown torched the Nets for 65.5 FP back in December and this current Nets club is worse now defensively. Boston is favored by 11, so a potential blowout could limit Brown’s minutes, but he’ll definitely be in some of my lineups.
Paul George – $8,300: PG13 put up an absolute dud last night as the Warriors throttled the Clippers. He shot just 3-15
and scored only 11 points. Tonight they face the Kings without Kawhi Leonard in a game that has the second-highest point total of the night. George has absolutely wrecked the Kings this year averaging 61 DKFP in two games this season. It’s doubtful he has another outing like last night. Lock him in and hope for 60 more FP.
Russell Westbrook – $7,100: Like PG13, Russ also put up a subpar performance last night against Golden State. But without Kawhi Leonard look for Russ to get 15-20 shots and 40+ FP. The Kings are 26th in opponent points allowed, 29th in field goal percentage against, and 26th in 3-point percentage against. Stacking PG13 and Russ could make for a profitable night.
DraftKings NBA DFS Picks: Value Guards
Eric Gordon – $3,700: Gordon moved into the starting lineup last night and played 34 minutes while taking 16 shots — and that was with Kawhi in the lineup. Tonight the Clips will be without Kawhi, and Norman Powell left the arena with his arm in a sling last night, so I consider him doubtful for tonight. Gordon is a great value pick at just $3700.
Austin Reaves – $4,100: Reaves is the first guard off the bench for the LeBron-less Lakers and he should get 25+ minutes tonight at home against Minnesota. He’s scored 17 or more points in two of his last three games, and he’s gone for 30 or more DKFP over that span. DeAngelo Russell remains out tonight, so Reaves is a solid value at just $4,100.
Kris Dunn – $4,300: Injuries to Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson have allowed Dunn to play meaningful minutes right away for the Jazz. He’s played in three games and his minutes have increased in each game: 17, 23, 26. He dropped 40.25 FP against the Spurs last week and might be in for a similar performance against a Thunder team playing without Shae Gilgeous-Alexander.
