DraftKings DFS - NBA Fantasy Lineup Advice and Value Plays (4/25/15)

Premium DFS Lineup Tools

RotoBaller’s Premium NBA DFS Tools help you win your head-to-heads and GPPs. With a 1-Day Free Trial of our NBA DFS Premium Pass, you can even test drive these DFS tools for free for 24 hours:

  • Player vs. Player Comparison: Compare up to five players’ recent FanDuel fantasy points to find the highest scoring players for your lineups.
  • Player vs. Team Comparison: Compare up to five players’ FanDuel points vs. any team to find players with the best matchups for your lineups.

Both of these tools will show you players’ points per game and points per minute over any custom date range. This information can help you gain an edge with your NBA DFS lineups.

 

This Saturday has four games that all have the potential to be very high scoring contests. As a DFS player, this should make you ecstatic. Both the Bulls and Warriors have the opportunity to advance to the second round of the playoffs with a victory on the road. These contests should be very competitive as the Pelicans and Bucks try and defend their home courts from the conference powerhouses that look to "bring out the broom." The superstars on every team this playoffs have showed up to play and have proven that they deserve to be in the playoffs. I do not expect this pattern to change Saturday. Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Derrick Rose, Khris Middleton, and Brook Lopez would consist of my must starts for tomorrow. I should not have to explain why you should play these players but it would be smart of you two implement at least two into your lineups. Instead of picking high price players, I will specifically target the few players that should perform above their expectations.

Every series has been great to watch and I look forward to another great day Saturday. The Nets have been giving the Hawks a challenge, and I predict a victory for the Nets led by big man Brook Lopez. Coming up close in previous games will motivate the Nets to pull out a victory at home.

Derrick Rose has been playing out of his mind and I expect another stellar performance from him as well as another solid outing by Pau Gasol. I would stay away from the Bucks roster as there is no telling how the game will pan out tomorrow. The Bulls could and should dominate from the first minute to end the Bucks playoff run at four games.

On to my favorite match-up for Saturday (mainly because I will be attending the game) between the Warriors and Pelicans. Steph Curry and Anthony Davis should carry their teams the entire game and should have fantastic games like usual.

The match-up between the Grizzlies and Trail Blazers has been the least interesting of any series so far. It has been great defense between both squads. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are struggling to produce with tough match-ups against LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. Randolph should be able to find his shot tomorrow, and I expect him to fall back into his usual form. The Grizzlies should pull out another victory against a dilapidated Portland team.

 

Value Players a.k.a. Lineup Enhancers

Jarrett Jack (BKN, G) - $4,500

In only 29 minutes, Jarrett Jack managed to put up 23 points, five rebounds, and three assists Wednesday. Jack should carry this momentum into game three with potential of getting an increase in minutes due to his recent impressive play. He shot 69% from the field, so obviously Jack is feeling comfortable with his shot and his ability to attack the rim. The Hawks could have trouble containing him along with Brook Lopez and Deron Williams causing havoc all over the court. With the Nets needing this key win at home, I expect Jack to help Lopez fuel the Nets squad in game three. His low price and high ceiling allows the Brooklyn guard to be a solid play.

 

Courtney Lee (MEM, G) - $4,100

Another player who receives substantial minutes and has the potential to score and create offense is Courtney Lee. When Lee can find his jump shot, it is hard to stop. He is not the biggest factor of the Grizzlies offense, but in a series that is dominated by guards, Lee has a price tag that makes him optimal for a day like tomorrow. You will want to stack your roster with as many superstars as you can, which requires you to balance out your lineup with very cheap options who will receive minutes. After a break-out Game 2, Lee should be able to carry that into Game 3 at Portland. The opportunity for Lee to establish himself as a key component of this Memphis offense relies on his ability to produce when the surrounding players are not. I think Game 3 is a perfect time for him to explode, and I look forward to a great game to close out Saturday.

 

Ryan Anderson (NO, F) - $3,600

Ryan Anderson combined for a total of 30 minutes in his first two playoff games. Game 3 is where he tallied 26 points, five rebounds, and two assists. Anderson found his shot, and he rebounded in excellent form just in time for the Pelicans to make a stand at home against the Warriors. He shot a remarkable 71% from the field while hitting two big threes. This type of play should continue in Game 4 and possibly a Game 5 if the Pelicans can pull off the victory at home. Anderson should be a safe play in this contest, although his potential to repeat are slim while still possible.

These are the most viable options for value plays Saturday. While there are plenty of other options, these are the ones that I found most enticing. I will be at the Pelicans and Warriors Game 4 with my girlfriend so follow me on twitter for updates during the game at@JakeFinnenRB. Feel free to tweet what your value or must plays are on Saturday, because I am always open to new information and opinions. Good luck to all, and may you all cash in.
