Pay attention to the injury news today to makes sure all players are playing tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/1/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Devin Booker - SG, PHO vs CLE (DK - $10,100)

Booker might be the best player in the league over the past few games, as he comes in averaging 43 real points per game, for a total of 61 DraftKings points. That is an insane level of production which comes from the fact he is attempting 27 field goals per game over his last five. The Suns will be without Deandre Ayton on Monday, which sees Booker's already high usage rate jump up to 38.5%, producing 1.20 fantasy points per minute.

Trey Burke - PG, DAL vs PHI (DK - $4,000)

With Luka Doncic out in the Mavs most recent game, we could be seeing him sit out one more as we come to the end of the season and Dallas out of the playoffs. When Doncic missed that most recent game, Burke saw 31 minutes for a total of 41 DraftKings points and still comes in very cheap tonight. He will be up against the 76ers who are allowing 45 DraftKings points per game to point guards, which makes this one of the tougher matchups on the slate. The minutes should be there for him if Doncic is in fact ruled out.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Shaquille Harrison - SF, CHI @ NY (DK - $6,500)

Harrison has played 30 minutes or more in six straight games due to the Bulls dealing with so many injuries to end the season. In those six games of 30 minutes or more, Harrison has posted over one fantasy point per minute three times, which should give him enough consistency for cash games tonight. He will be facing off against the Knicks, who are allowing 43 DraftKings points per game to small forwards, which is the second most in the league.

Thon Maker - PF, DET @ IND (DK - $3,800)

The Pistons have ruled Blake Griffin out for tonight's game and this will make the second game in a row he has missed. With Griffin out, Maker joined the starting lineup on Saturday, played 28 minutes and posted 16 DraftKings points. That's OK, not great, but with Maker being under $4K, he truly doesn't burn your lineup. We will likely see Maker draw the start once again and it comes in a very middle of the road matchup versus the Pacers who are allowing 47 DraftKings points per game to power forwards, which is 12th in the league.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Mitchell Robinson - C, NY vs CHI (DK - $6,300)

Robinson is very affordable tonight and comes in with one of the best matchups on the slate, which should give him plenty of upside tonight. He is known for his ability to rack up blocks every game, averaging nearly three per game over his last four, which makes him super valuable in tournaments. He has also shown plenty of double-double upside, which is firmly in the cards tonight going up against the Bulls, who are allowing 58 DraftKings points per game to centers, which is the sixth worst in the league.
