There are only four games on the main slate for Saturday night, so our stacking options will be a bit limited. This means there’s little margin for error in which teams we pick to stack in GPPs. It’s also a decent idea to use stacking in a shorter slate rather than a larger one.
Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the NBA game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can read more about the concept of stacking here, but the main goal is to take advantage of this plus-matchup and use the salary cap to your advantage.
Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the NBA slate on Saturday, March 20.
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Sacramento Kings, 8:00 p.m. ET
Ben Simmons ($9,100)
Tobias Harris ($8,800)
Dwight Howard ($6,000)
Shake Milton ($5,200)
Danny Green ($4,700)
The Sixers are without Joel Embiid again and face the Kings at home. Philly is also missing Seth Curry, so there’s a lot of scoring slack to pick up — most of which will go to Harris, Milton and Green. Since the Sixers are shorthanded, we can chalk up most of the starters and rotation guys for their normal amount of minutes (even if this game gets out of hand). Sixers-Kings has a high total at 230.5 and the Sixers team total is at 118.5. This may be a bit chalky, but we can get creative elsewhere. Since the Sixers ar
Charlotte Hornets vs. Los Angeles Clippers, 10:00 p.m. ET
LaMelo Ball ($8,100)
Gordon Hayward ($7,100)
PJ Washington ($6,800)
Terry Rozier ($6,700)
This is probably an awful idea. The Hornets have not played well so far on their trip out West. Back-to-back losses to the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers and only hitting 105 points against L.A. The thing is it’s a short slate and we need to get a little funky with our stacks. The Clippers haven’t been playing well since before the break, 5-8 in their last 13 games. Serge Ibaka is questionable for the Clippers, so that’s something to monitor. Ball is underpriced given the matchup and a cold stretch, which makes him a great tournament option. Washington should get more run at center with Cody Zeller sidelined.
Draymond Green ($7,400)
Andrew Wiggins ($6,300)
Kelly Oubre Jr. ($6,100)
Jordan Poole ($5,100)
We can run back the Warriors on the second leg of a back-to-back set with the Grizz. On Friday night, the Dubs were without Stephen Curry (tailbone). He’s unlikely to play tonight and the Warriors prices haven’t really been adjusted well. Green has triple-double upside. Wiggins dropped 40 last night and Poole has been insanely hot in March, shooting 56 percent from the floor, 46 percent from 3 and 85 percent from the stripe while averaging 20 points per game. I don’t see why the Dubs can’t have a repeat performance (at least from an offensive perspective) Saturday vs. Memphis.
