Make Damian Lillard Your Daily Fantasy Play!

Lillard just scored 51 against the Warriors! Imagine what he might do against Trey Burke and Raul Neto...

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers face off in Portland tonight. Blazers guard Damian Lillard is an appealing daily fantasy option.

Lillard is mad about not being named to the All-Star team, and he let everyone know it when he dropped 51(!) on the Golden State Warriors on Friday. Lillard added seven assists six, steals, and zero turnovers to his line for the night.

Daily fantasy owners have to be asking themselves: If Lillard can do THAT against the Warriors, what is he going to do against Raul Neto and Trey Burke? Shelvin Mack may shore up Utah's backcourt defense...eventually. But this is only his second game with the team so he will likely need an adjustment period before becoming effective. Lillard should be able to take advantage of Utah's backcourt weakness for the full 48 minutes tonight.
