Welcome to the NBA DFS 3-26-22 FanDuel Picks article! We’ve got a seven-game main slate tonight. There is plenty to keep an eye on with tonight’s games. The Raptors are in the sixth spot looking to get out of the play-in tournament and overtake Cleveland’s position. Cleveland is trying to keep their fifth spot away from the Raptors, but Cleveland has a much more formidable opponent in the Bulls than the Raptors do against the Pacers.
Tonight, we will see what the Grizzlies will look like without Ja Morant against the defending champion Bucks. Plus, we have a possible playoff preview between the Heat and the Nets!
This slate of Saturday night games is better than last week’s games! So let’s set a lineup, watch the games, and try to win some money along the way!
NBA DFS 3-26-22 FanDuel Picks
Indiana Pacers @ Toronto Raptors
Sacramento Kings @ Orlando Magic
Chicago Bulls @ Cleveland Cavaliers
Brooklyn Nets @ Miami Heat
Milwaukee Bucks @ Memphis Grizzlies
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Denver Nuggets
Houston Rockets @ Portland Trail Blazers
Kris Dunn, Portland Trail Blazers $4,800
This season, Dunn has only played in six games, averaging 7.3 points, 5.2 assists, three rebounds, and two steals. Tonight, he’ll have a chance to boost the averages against the Rockets, who allow the most fantasy points (51.4) per game to point guards.
The Rockets allow 24.1 points, nine rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game to PGs. So, Dunn will be a great cheap option to help you spend the big bucks elsewhere.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder $9,800
Shai Gilgeous Alexander last 5 games:
30.8 PPG (30+ in 4/5)
56.0 FG% (20.1 attempts)
41.7 3PT% (4.7 attempts)
85.7 FT% (7.9 attempts)

SGA sat out his mandatory game so the Thunder can continue their tank, but he should be available tonight against the Nuggets. He has destroyed the Nuggets this season.
Gilgeous-Alexander averages 21.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, and seven assists this season against the Nuggets. Denver has struggled at stopping point guards this season, considering they allow the third-most fantasy points to point guards.
To point guards, the Nuggets allow 24.1 points, nine assists, and 6.4 rebounds per game.
R.J. Hampton, Orlando Magic $4,100
Hampton is coming off a 14-point game against the Thunder. He should be able to build off that performance against the Kings, who allow the most fantasy points to shooting guards.
The Kings allow 22.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to shooting guards. Hampton falls into the same category as Kris Dunn, cheap but valuable.
Bryn Forbes, Denver Nuggets $3,500
I’m spending big money on Kevin Durant and Nikola Jokic, so I’m digging deep in the discount bin to save money. In that bin is Forbes, who is facing off against the Thunder, one of the worst defensive teams this season.
The Thunder allow the second-most fantasy points per game to shooting guards. They allow 22.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game to SGs.
Plus, Forbes is averaging more points against the Thunder than starter Will Barton. That’s why I’m choosing the backup over the starter.
Eric Gordon, Houston Rockets $3,600

Gordon had a terrible night against the Mavericks, with only two damn points. He shouldn’t have those troubles against Portland, who allow the most fantasy points to small forwards (45 points).
The Trail Blazers allow 23.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to SFs. Plus, they allow the most three-pointers made to SFs this season.
Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings $5,700
Barnes has been a consistent producer at a reasonable price the entire season, averaging 16.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. He has a great matchup against the Magic, so Barnes has a chance at a big game.
This season, the Magic allow 21.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game to small forwards.
Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets $10,900
Kevin Durant over the last 9 Games:
31 PTS, 4 AST, 4 REB
37 PTS, 8 AST, 57% FG
14 PTS, 7 AST, 3 REB
25 PTS, 14 REB, 59% FG
53 PTS, 9 AST, 51% FG
19 PTS, 7 AST, 67% FG
23 PTS, 10 AST, 6 REB
38 PTS, 6 AST, 73% FG
37 PTS, 8 AST, 65% FG pic.twitter.com/jl66E1e2d1

Durant is one of the best shooters in the NBA, so there isn’t much to say about having him in your lineup. It’s a no-brainer decision. But if you need a stat to convince you to insert Durant in your lineup, then here is one, Durant is averaging 31.2 points, 7.4 assists, and seven rebounds in his last ten games.
Jalen Smith, Indiana Pacers $5,400
Smith was on a tear before he missed two games due to illness. He averaged 13.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, and one assist in his last five games. Smith should be back tonight healthy and looking to show the Pacers why he is a building block for the future.
He has a decent matchup against the Raptors, who allow 21.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game to PFs.
Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets $11,600
Players in the Top 10 for PPG, RPG, and APG this season:
— Nikola Jokic
He is also leading the league in triple-doubles and double-doubles. pic.twitter.com/aBxWzl7P9X
— StatMuse (@statmuse) March 24, 2022
Speaking of a no-brainer, Jokic can walk away with a triple-double any night, making him a must-start. In fact, he has five triple-doubles in his last 11 games and is averaging 29.9 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists during that span.
Jokic will destroy the Thunder, who allow the fourth-most fantasy points to centers this season. The Thunder allow 21.5 points, 17.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game to centers.
