We have a solid three game slate, and we are deeper into the series', so we're aware of how these teams plan on playing each other. That could cause specific players' ownership to rise, but we also generally know what players will be at least somewhat lower owned.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/20/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too. Give me a follow on Twitter and say hello @BalesSJustin. Good luck!

DraftKings DFS Guards

John Wall - PG, vs TOR ($9,300)

Wall has caught fire recently, averaging 59.1 fantasy points per game over his last four games. He scored 61.75 fantasy points in his first matchup against the Toronto Raptors before "struggling" in their second game. In that game, Wall was in foul trouble, somewhat limiting his minutes. He is the focal point of the offense, and he could play nearly 40 minutes tonight. He's an elite option in all leagues.

Delon Wright - PG/SG, at WAS ($4,500)

Wright has seen extended minutes for the Raptors this postseason because of an injury to Fred VanVleet. In two games, Wright is averaging 14.5 points, 1.0 rebound, 3.5 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 3.0 steals in 26.0 minutes per game. VanVleet was expected to play in the Raptors last game, but he only managed three minutes, suggesting he is not ready to return. Wright will lose value if VanVleet plays big minutes, but the unknown could cause Wright's ownership to decrease a bit.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

LeBron James - SF/PF, at IND ($11,800)

For whatever reason, James has been fairly low owned through his first two playoff games. In those games, he has scored 73.5 and 61.5 fantasy points. He is locked into 40+ minutes on a nightly basis, and he is the focal point of the Cavs team. The game essentially relies on James, and he comes with triple double potential. It would be foolish to avoid him at this point.

Mike Scott - PF, vs TOR ($3,800)

Scott has played 27 minutes in each of his first two games against the Raptors. He only scored 16.75 fantasy points in the first game, but he was able to score 28.5 fantasy points in their last matchup. Scott is mainly a scorer, who can also provide rebounds. He still comes with an extremely low price tag, and he has performed well in his new role.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Al Horford - PF/C, at MIL ($7,200)

Horford will be locked into big minutes because he is the player that has been used to try to neutralize Giannis Antetokounmpo. In their first two matchups, Horford is averaging 44.6 fantasy points per game. Horford is also averaging 1.16 fantasy points per minute in six matchups against the Bucks on the season. He is an efficient player that comes with tremendous versatility. Horford still comes with a reasonable price tag, and he can be considered in all leagues.
