Eric Gordon, With Some Caveats, Headlines The DraftKings And FanDuel Slam Dunks For 3/24

The following picks are provided by the #1 player in DFS, Awesemo. You can follow him on Twitter and check out his rankings for all the players on tonight’s slate here.

Nikola Vucevic

“There are several key factors lining up for Nikola Vucevic in this matchup versus the Suns. Both teams play at a top 10 pace and the Suns represent a rare pace-up opportunity for the Magic. Vuc and the Magic also benefit from a substantially higher than average team total of 112 points and, with the Suns as a bottom of the league rebounding team, Vucevic should pick up the peripheral statistics he needs to exceed value after a few down games.”

Eric Gordon and Mario Hezonja (FanDuel)

“Both players are in pace-up matchups with prices on FanDuel that haven’t fully adjusted to the injuries on both their teams. Eric Gordon will have substantially more usage versus the Pelicans this time out than he did recently with Chris Paul active, enough to be one of the best value plays on the slate. Mario Hezonja didn’t rise to the occasion versus Philadelphia with Jonathon Simmons and Evan Fournier out but there’s a much higher likelihood of him hitting value versus the Suns for the same reasons listed above for Vucevic.”

Troy Daniels and Marquese Chriss (DraftKings)

“Troy Daniels has been an excellent play receiving steady minutes with Devin Booker sidelined. In this fantasy friendly fast paced game with Vegas projecting a high team total versus Orlando, he should be able to continue his hot run at a price that looks good on both sites but more valuable on DraftKings. As noted in the Switch and Hedge, Marquese Chriss likely won’t start due to the matchup versus Nikola Vucevic but Chriss is priced like he’s playing 18 minutes when it seems like he’s out of the dog house after playing 35 minutes last night. He has huge upside regardless of where he plays thanks to the matchup and recent role he’s had on the Suns with their injury issues.”
