DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (5/11/16): NBA DFS Advice

By Keith Allison [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

Am I the only one that was hoping the Blazers could even up the series 2-2? I thought they really had a shot at it until the Warriors just ran away with it at the end.

Okay, back to business. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy NBA lineup picks for DraftKings on 5/11/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays on DraftKings.

Without wasting anymore time, here are the picks!

DraftKings DFS Guards


Stephen Curry (vs POR, $9,700) 

It isn't often that Curry is priced under $10k, but we get that tonight because of the threat of his injury. He played 36 minutes in his last game, but that was because Livingston was ejected and Curry was forced into those minutes. That likely won't be the case tonight, but Curry has been inserted back into the starting lineup. He comes with a certain amount of risk, but if he plays a full game, Curry will easily exceed value.

C.J. McCollum (at GS, $6,900) 

If the Blazers want to pull off the upset and keep their Championship aspirations alive, McCollum and Lillard are going to have to have ridiculous games. McCollum has played well in each of his last two games, which were both close until the end. McCollum scored 36.25 fantasy points in each of those games, and he'll continue to play with the ball in his hands throughout the game. The Blazers could come out with a fire tonight, and McCollum can be used in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Forwards


Draymond Green (vs POR, $11,800)

It's tough to pay this much for Green, but he has looked tremendous against the Blazers and he's the only elite forward option on the slate. Green is averaging 63.2 fantasy points per game against the Blazers this series, and he'll return home tonight, where he is a slightly better fantasy player. It wouldn't be a crazy idea to avoid him tonight, but he's going to be one of the first guys I use in each of my lineups.

Al-Farouq Aminu (at GS, $6,000) 

AFA has been playing with a ton of passion in each of the last two games, and he has scored 40+ fantasy points in each of those games. He will continue to play around 40 minutes tonight, as the Blazers are one game away from being eliminated. This game is going to be fast paced, and Aminu has been playing power forward, which gives him plenty of opportunities for rebounds. He can be used in all leagues for his price tag tonight.


DraftKings DFS Centers


Bismack Biyombo (vs MIA, $4,400) 

Biyombo is going to be owned at a ridiculous percentage tonight, and for good reason. Jonas Valanciunas has been ruled out for the series, and Biyombo is going to be playing big minutes. In his last game, he scored 37.75 fantasy points, which is great for his price tag. He'll likely easily exceed value again tonight, and he'll allow you to play some of the more expensive players. He should be used in all leagues tonight.
