Playoffs are one of the most exciting times for DFS tournaments. Accuracy is key and rostering the value pick that goes off for 40FPTS is a fantastic feeling.
Out of the three games tonight, the bench options are a little hazy. Look for value in Game 2 of the Atlanta-Washington series, while stacking your lineup with the rest of the Wednesday night's superstars.
In this article, I will be providing you with daily NBA lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/19/17. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

DraftKings DFS Guards
Brandon Jennings - PG, vs ATL ($3,200)
There is a reason his price is dangerously low. Brandon Jennings only managed 15 minutes last game, but racked up five assists and three boards in the little amount of time. His floor is fairly high as the backup to John Wall, and hoping he can find some sort of shot, he is a strong value play. Jennings has little problem finding teammates and being productive as far as DFS is concerned, it's just he would be a lot better if he had a consistent jumper. After going scoreless last game, expect him to make scoring a purpose in Game 2.
Lou Williams - SG, vs OKC ($5,200)
Always a solid option, Lou Williams is capable of having a night then can send you straight to the top of the leaderboard. The way the Rockets play, they are going to feed the hot-hand each night. Whether it is Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson, or Lou Williams depends on the night. Tonight, Lou Williams is going to have to rebound from his 3-11 shooting night in Game 1.
Also Consider: Patrick Beverley - PG, vs OKC ($5,800)
DraftKings DFS Forwards
Andre Iguodala - SF, vs POR ($4,300)
This pick is mainly due to the recent Kevin Durant calf flare-up, but even then Andre Iguodala is always gets plenty of minutes in the Golden State rotation. He is a very productive player, contributing across the board every night. If Kevin Durant does miss this game, Iguodala will be the top beneficiary.
Markieff Morris - PF, vs ATL ($5,600)
It is very likely that the limited PF options lead to Paul Millsap being heavily played. To counter that, go with Markieff Morris. A slightly cheaper option with great upside. Paul Millsap is going to continue to be the heart of the Hawks, meaning they need him to produce on offense. Unfortunately, Millsap is also the defensive piece in Atlanta. With all that Millsap will be doing, Morris will be right there making it even harder. Morris has "un-guardable" features to him. Athleticism, a high-release, and good defensive instincts. Morris had a great Game 1 and will build on that Game 2.
Also Consider: Draymond Green - PF, vs POR ($7,500)
DraftKings DFS Centers
Marcin Gortat - C, vs ATL - $5,100
Marcin Gortat got a double-double in Game 1. There is no reason why it shouldn't happen again. As one of the cheaper centers that should exceed his projection, Gortat will be a solid play nearly every night.
Also Consider: Javale McGee - C, vs POR ($2,800) value play
