Top building blocks and fades for Tuesday’s NBA DFS action

The last time that Drummond faced the Utah Jazz, he exploded for 30 points, 24 rebounds, 6 blocks, 4 assists and 3 steals. It was a monster night. However, this was earlier in the season before the Pistons made their trades. Detroit is a different team now, and more importantly the Jazz are much different as well. They are playing dramatically better defense lately, allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing centers over their last 10 games. Rudy Gobert is also playing his best ball of late, and has the size and ability to slow Durmmond down.

The rookie has impressed this season and his counting numbers are actually up in March, but I’ve got my concerns. We are obviously still early in the month, but Mitchell has taken more 3s than 2s thus far and given the sporadic nature of his jumper, that worries me at this price.

Stevens sounded open to the idea of shelving Irving until he’s more confident in the knee.

“If he doesn’t feel 100 percent, then we need to have him sit, and so I think that that is something that we’ve all talked about, and [that’s] why he didn’t come back in [against Indiana],” Stevens said.

Kyle Soppe: I believe Nurkic is a fine player, but I expect his long-term ceiling to be as much a product of the roster around him as anything else. When I look at Nurkic, I essentially see another 23-year-old big man, Clint Capela. No, they don’t look the same, but we are talking about guys playing on a perimeter-oriented offense that, on occasion, will feature their very capable big.

The big nights will be there when the matchup is just right, but the usage ceiling is only so high. Given the success Portland is experiencing this season, I see no reason why they’d put more offensive responsibilities on Nurkic. Assuming this team continues to build around Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, Nurkic’s ceiling is along the lines of what Capela is doing this Cheap Dog Jerseys season (14.1 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks). That’s very nice production, but I don’t think he will be able to transition to an elite fantasy asset.

The Phillies have agreed to a three-year, $75 million deal with right-hander Cheap Elite NFL Jerseys Jake Arrieta.
