Daily Fantasy NBA Player Value Watch – March 15: James Harden Big Days Ahead

Gambling911.com has your daily fantasy NBA player watch for the upcoming days.  This is an easy to follow analysis broken down by alphabetical player order and date.

Who to Consider Daily:

March 15 - Aaron Brooks, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Eric Gordon, Omer Asik  

March 17 – Gerald Henderson, *James Harden

March 18 – Rudy Gay, Elfrid Payton

March 19 – *James Harden

March 20 – DeMarcus Cousins, Bradley Beal, Aaron Brooks, Gerald Henderson

March 21 – James Harden

March 22 - Gerald Henderson, Nikola Vucevic

March 23 – Bradley Beal, Nikola Mirotic

Aaron Brooks (Chicago - PG) $4.9K - He accumulated over 30 fantasy points versus a solid Charlotte team the other night.  Against Philadelphia before that one he scored 31 baskets. Brooks only needs around 25 fantasy points to make value.

Toronto is coming up and the Raptors have allowed the 11th most fantasy points to opposing point guards.  Brooks scored 17 baskets off the bench the last time he faced Toronto.  He also had two each an assist and rebound along with a steal and block.

James Harden (Houston - SG) $10.5K – The Clippers have struggled to contain opposing shooting guards and they don’t get much better than Harden.  This Rockets star needs to rack up 42 fantasy points to make value and had little trouble doing so the last time facing off against LA.

Harden had well over 55 fantasy points versus Orlando in his last game facing that team.  He will play the Magic on the 17th.  *The blowout potential is here so exercise some caution as minutes could be reduced.

Denver allows the most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards.  He will go up against the Nuggets on March 19.  He had little trouble making value vs. Denver the last time he played them.   *The blowout potential is here so exercise some caution as minutes could be reduced.

Harden flirted with 75 fantasy points the last time he met Phoenix.  Nuff said.

You will notice there are no back-to-back games for Houston over their next five meetings. Make sure Harden is not slated to sit out any of the games against under .500 opponents such as Orlando and Denver. 

Eric Gordon (New Orleans - SG) $5.4K – He made value vs. Brooklyn and Milwaukee his two previous games.  He’ll go up against a Denver team that is among the worst in the league but one that played well against New Orleans the last time these teams met on March 1.  Gordon just barely made value when he last faced the Nuggets.  That one was on the road, however.  We anticipate the Pelicans shooting guard to accumulate over 30 fantasy points on March 15.

Omer Asik (New Orleans - C) $4.5K – Denver has had its troubles against centers and this one will be especially well rested following a stellar performances versus Brooklyn on Tuesday in which he tallied up over 34 fantasy points.  Asik only needs roughly 27 to make value against Denver on Sunday.   

Trevor Ariza (Houston - SF) $5.7K – He needs roughly 28 fantasy points to make value against the Clippers.  Ariza flirted with that number the last time he played them.  This is a Clippers team ranked close to last in terms of giving up the most fantasy points to opposing small forwards.  Ariza, though, struggled mightily against Utah his last game but did make value versus Portland in the previous game and did the same versus Denver.  Ariza will face LA with plenty of rest.

DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento - C) $9.5K - DeMarcus Cousins is on fire and he did manage to make value last time he faced the Hornets but he probably shouldn’t be the first consideration on this day (March 20) unless value is limited elsewhere.

Rudy Gay (Sacramento - SF) $7.2K - Gay should offer great value against the Clippers on the 18th.  LA ranks 29th against small forwards this season.

Bradley Beal (Washington - SG) $5.9K – The Clippers have struggled against shooting guards.  Beal scores over 40 fantasy points the last time he faced them.

Nikola Mirotic - (Chicago - PF) $7.6K - Charlotte is looming large on the 23rd.  Mirotic just made value against the Hornets coming off the bench.  It helps that they have struggled against power forwards of late.  He easily made value as a starter against Philadelphia in his previous game.

Gerald Henderson (Charlotte - SG) $5.1K - Needing only 25 fantasy points to make value, Henderson just lit it up against the Bulls, accumulating 30 plus fantasy points.  The Clippers have struggled against shooting guards of late though Henderson struggled against LA the last time he faced them. 

A better option is using Henderson against Sacramento, a team that ranks dead last against shooting guards.  He flirted with 40 fantasy points the last time facing Sacramento. This one goes off March 20 so watch for price changes between now and then.

Minnesota gives up the 8th most fantasy points allowed to opposing shooting guards.  He reached value last time facing the T-Wolves.  This one goes off March 22 so watch for price changes.

Elfrid Payton (Orlando - PG) $5.8K - Needing roughly 29 fantasy points, Payton topped 35 the other night versus Boston and came close to making value versus Milwaukee in the previous game.  Most telling of all perhaps is that Payton was able to hold his own against Indiana a few nights ago.

Dallas has struggled against point guards though Payton did not fare well versus the Mavs when he last faced them.  Use only as a last alternative in this matchup.

Nikola Vucevic (Orlando - C) $8.7K - Denver is coming up and they have permitted the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing centers. The last time he faced the Nuggets, Vucevic tallied up just over 35 fantasy points.  He only needs that amount to make value and is very likely to do so.
