Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 3.13.12

Brandon Jennings

Beast of the Night: Brandon Jennings finished with 34 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and six three-pointers last night. He shot 52 percent (12-23) from the floor, 80 percent (4-5) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. After struggling through February, Jennings is averaging 25.0 points, 4.0 boards, 7.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.0 threes in his first seven games this month. He’s been a top 30 stud so far this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Carlos Delfino: 1-8 FG (13%), 2 Pts, 6 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO; he continues to start and play plenty of minutes, but he’s proving himself worthy of nothing more than a bench spot right now

Kris Humphries: 11-15 FG (73%), 9-12 FT (75%), 31 Pts, 18 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 Blk, 1 TO; Humphries has improved his production in nearly every category from their marks last season and has been a top 60 fantasy asset thus far in the 2011-12 NBA season

Rodney Stuckey: 10-17 FG (59%), 9-11 FT (82%), 29 Pts, 4 Reb, 7 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; in his last five games, Stuckey is averaging 22.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 threes, while shooting 53 percent from the floor and 81 percent from the free-throw line (continue reading…)

LeBron James

Beast of the Night: LeBron James finished with 35 points, eight boards, three assists and a steal last night. He shot 76 percent (16-21) from the floor, 100 percent (3-3) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. James has improved his scoring, rebounding, blocking and accuracy from the floor from his marks last season and is the king of fantasy basketball this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Kemba Walker: 6-15 FG (40%), 6-9 FT (67%), 3 threes, 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 TO; D.J. Augustin is set to return for the Bobcats’ next game, so the window to sell high on Walker is nearly shut

Nikola Pekovic: 6-13 FG (46%), 4-6 FT (67%), 16 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 1 TO; in his eight games this month, Pekovic is averaging 16.6 points, 10.5 rebounds, a steal and 0.8 blocks per game, while shooting 62 percent from the field and 72 percent from the free-throw line

Carlos Delfino: 8-12 FG (67%), 3-3 FT (100%), 5 threes, 24 Pts, 1 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 3 TO; he’s getting a steady diet of minutes nowadays and has hit 16 threes in his last four games (continue reading…)

Dwight Howard, LeBron James

Beast of the Night: Dwight Howard posted 25 points, 24 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks last night, his sixth 20/20 game of the season. He shot 64 percent (9-14) from the field, 70 percent (7-10) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. Howard’s averaging 25.4 points, 16.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.8 blocks in his five games so far this month.

Lines for Discussion:
Ryan Anderson: 8-19 FG (42%), 6-9 FT (67%), 5 threes, 27 Pts, 11 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 TO; he still leads the NBA with 3.0 three-pointers made per game

Carlos Delfino: 7-12 FG (58%), 5-6 FT (83%), 6 threes, 25 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 4 Stl, 3 TO; this was easily his best game of the season, so maybe coach Scott Skiles will be inclined to give him more minutes going forward

DeMar DeRozan: 9-18 FG (50%), 3-3 FT (100%), 4 threes, 25 Pts, 4 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; to put things into perspective, DeRozan connected on only three three-pointers in the 20 games before last night (continue reading…)

Buy Low:
Dirk Nowitzki
