We have two small slates today, but I will be focusing around the later slate. There aren't many picks, so these could get a bit wild.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/8/18. 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 @BalesSJustin. Good luck!

DraftKings DFS Guards

Joe Ingles - SG/SF, at LAL ($6,400)

Ingles continues to be a consistent option with tremendous upside. Over the last 10 days, he is averaging 11.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.0 steal in 32.6 minutes per game. He also gets an elite matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers, who he is averaging 32.5 fantasy points against this season. Ingles can be used in all leagues.

Wes Iwundu - SG/SF, at TOR ($3,100)

Iwundu is far from a great fantasy player, but he is playing fairly big minutes. He is almost the minimum price, and his time on the court is valuable enough on this type of slate. Over the last 10 days, Iwundu is averaging 13.3 fantasy points in 30.0 minutes per game. His production is less than elite, but he is a cheap way to get court time.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kevin Durant - SF/PF, at PHX ($11,400)

Durant has caught fire recently, averaging 55.1 fantasy points in 33.8 minutes per game over his last four games. He gets a great matchup against the Phoenix Sun, who love pushing the pace in games. Durant is averaging a 23.0/9.0/7.0/2.0 line against Phoenix in two games this season. Durant is an option that can be used in all leagues tonight.

Mario Hezonja - SF/PF, at TOR ($5,600)

Hezonja's minutes have been a bit up and down recently, but he is averaging 12.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.2 blocks, and 1.8 steals in 29.3 minutes per game over the last 10 days. He still comes with a reasonable price tag, and he has played well on a per minute basis against Toronto this season. He's a solid option on this slate.

DraftKings DFS Centers

Jonas Valanciunas - C, vs ORL ($5,700)

Valanciunas is essentially the opposite of Wes Iwundu. He generally plays minutes in the low-20s, but comes with tremendous production on a per minute basis. In his last seven games with 20+ minutes, he is averaging 30.7 fantasy points per game. He is a high upside option that comes with tremendous risk. You should only truly be playing tournaments tonight anyway.
