Jamal Murray DK $7,600 – FD $8,200
Another player to consider adding to your NBA DFS lineup on Friday, March 10, 2023, is Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets. With a price tag of $7,600 on DraftKings and $8,200 on FanDuel, Murray is a solid mid-range option with huge upside potential. His opponent, the San Antonio Spurs, are notorious for allowing a high number of points per game and rank last in points allowed, defensive efficiency, and fantasy points surrendered. This sets up a fantastic matchup for Murray, who has been a dominant force in recent games, averaging 39 fantasy points per game across his last 27 outings.
Murray has scored at least 41 DK points in 16 of those games, which bodes well for his potential output in this game against the Spurs. Although he had a slightly below-average performance against the Bulls on Wednesday with only 18.9 FD points, he had scored at least 40.7 in each of the previous four games. The matchup is too good to ignore vs the Spurs, I’ll be heavily invested in Murray on this slate.
Kristaps Porzingis DK $9,100 – FD $9,800
Priced at $9,100 on DraftKings and $9,800 on FanDuel, Porzingis is having a fantastic season, posting career-highs across the board. He’s been on a hot streak lately, scoring at least 51 DK points in three of his last four games and averaging an impressive 46 points across his last 15 games.
Porzingis’ recent performances make him a top candidate for your NBA DFS lineups on Friday, especially against the Atlanta Hawks, who have a 24th-ranked defense. In their recent matchup, Porzingis collected an impressive 43 points, five rebounds, and five assists, making it one of the best games of his career. In fact, he just had another excellent performance against the Hawks on Wednesday, racking up 55.5 FD points, his third effort of over 50 in the last four games.
Nikola Jokic DK $11,700 – FD $11,700
Priced at $11,700 on both DraftKings and FanDuel, Jokic is a frontrunner for his third-straight MVP, averaging an impressive 59 DraftKings points per game. He’s also posting a triple-double average for the year, which makes him a consistent and valuable contributor to any NBA DFS lineup.
Jokic has a highly favorable matchup against the San Antonio Spurs, who are notorious for allowing a high number of points per game. In fact, despite playing just 30 minutes a night in their two previous matchups, Jokic has averaged over 54 DK points per game against them. This makes it nearly impossible to fade him in your NBA DFS lineup.
However, it’s worth noting that Jokic has been slightly below his usual standard in recent games, and if Denver builds a significant lead, his minutes could be cut a little, which could limit his potential output. Nonetheless, Jokic is a top candidate for your NBA DFS lineups today thanks to his consistent scoring and favorable matchup.
