DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/29/19): NBA DFS Lineups

Only two games on the slate with the home teams favored in both games. We have the 76ers looking to bounce back after a horrible start the series and the Western Conference series kicking off.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/29/19. 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 check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups too early. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @DFS_Tom on Twitter.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, POR @ DEN (DK - $9,200)

We all saw what Lillard did to close out the series versus the Thunder, in what might be the best game of his career. A total of 77 DraftKings points in that final game and while we won't see him put up 50 real points and 10 made three-pointers every game, the offensive usage will always be there for him. Kanter is listed as questionable for his game and he is out, even more, will be on Lillard's shoulders.

Torrey Craig - SG, DEN vs POR (DK - $4,100)

Craig offers much-needed salary relief on this two-game slate and comes in with 26 minutes or more in his last four games. All but one of those games is under one fantasy point per minute, so we know the massive upside won't be there, but the savings are almost too good to pass up. The Nuggets will need secondary scoring after Jokic and Murray, so with Craig on the court for that many minutes he can fall into fantasy points.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Tobias Harris - SF, PHI @ TOR (DK - $7,200)

Harris was the best player for the 76er's in Game 1 and it's not even close. He ended with 43 DraftKings points in 38 minutes, basically, right at the level, we've seen him at all season since he joined Philadelphia. Simply put, a lot of the Toronto defense went towards Embiid and Simmons, which left Harris open on the floor for a 14 point, 15 rebound double-double.

Serge Ibaka - PF, TOR vs PHI (DK - $4,200)

We know that Ibaka has a pretty defined role for the Raptors and that is playing almost exactly 20 minutes per game, without fail. He has posted one fantasy point per minute or higher in each of his last four games and is truly very effective while on the court. He does, however, have a very limited upside on a night to night basis, but is cheap tonight.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Zach Collins - C, POR @ DEN (DK - $2,900)

With Enes Kanter being listed as questionable for this game, the Trail Blazers have a massive hole to fill. We may see some sort of platoon situation, where a few players are rotating in and out to eat up minutes, but Collins played double-digit minutes in the last four games of the first-round, which no other normal back up can say. The price is obviously super low since they've adjusted for the playoffs, so take the savings with Collins.
