My three-man stack from Monday’s matchup between the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans was a big success. Zion Williamson ($9,700), De’Aaron Fox ($9,300), and Brandon Ingram ($8,500) combined for more than 163 DKFP and returned nearly 6x value as a trio. Tuesday’s six-game main slate NBA slate on DraftKings has interesting matchups worth keeping an eye on, and we’ve identified a few for you.
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 Tuesday, March 13.
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Charlotte Hornets, 8:00 p.m. ET
Devonte’ Graham ($6,300)
Miles Bridges ($5,800)
Jalen McDaniels ($4,300)
Gordon Hayward (foot), PJ Washington (ankle), and Malik Monk (ankle) have been ruled out of Tuesday’s game, while Terry Rozier (knee) is doubtful. Injuries have piled up for the Hornets ahead of their matchup with the banged-up Lakers, and their most capable players are all very affordable.
Graham will have full control of the offense with Rozier and Monk out of the rotation and has tallied at least 34 DKFP in four of his last five contests. The Lakers excel against guards on defense, but Graham has no choice but to produce with only Brad Wanamaker ($3,800) backing him up. Bridges has played at least 36 minutes in three straight games and has returned at least 6x value in his last two outings with Hayward out of the mix. He’s been good enough to make both of the Martin twins an afterthought, despite all the injuries Charlotte is dealing with.
McDaniels has become the Hornets’ preference over Cody Zeller ($4,800) and Bismack Biyombo ($3,000) lately and has returned more than 12x value twice in his last three games. If Andre Drummond ($6,700) misses Tuesday with an elbow injury, McDaniels could feast again. Marc Gasol ($3,800) is questionable with a hamstring injury, so Los Angeles could have to get creative.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Utah Jazz, 9:00 p.m. ET
Donovan Mitchell ($9,400)
Rudy Gobert ($8,000)
Mike Conley ($6,900)
Bojan Bogdanovic ($5,200)
The Jazz are the best team in the Western Conference right now and are 16.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of this matchup, but injuries could make things interesting. Utah won’t have Jordan Clarkson (ankle), Joe Ingles (knee) and Royce O’Neale (knee) for the contest, so the Jazz’s explosive offense could be a lot more concentrated than usual.
Mitchell is a no-brainer against a Thunder team that ranks 28th on defense against shooting guards. He’s scored at least 37 points and 50 DKFP in four straight games. Conley is a bit streakier, but won’t have to worry about Clarkson sapping his usage coming off the bench. Bogdanovic is fresh off 33-point performance against the Washington Wizards’ abysmal defense and should also get a bump in shots after his hot night. Then there’s Gobert, who is a walking double-double and will take on a OKC team that ranks dead last defensively against centers. These four players could do a ton of damage with a shortened rotation, and you’ll have more than $5K to fill out the rest of your roster.
