FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/24/18): NBA DFS Lineups


Three games tonight and plenty of options. Usually this would be good but both the Celtics-Bucks and 76ers-Heat have been somewhat of a crapshoot. The shooters are hitting about every other game, although the superstars have been producing like they should. Game four of Warriors-Spurs shouldn't continue down that same path and expect the Warriors to put this one away while they can. The Spurs players should play better with their backs against the wall like they did last game, so LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are must-plays tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/24/18. 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

Dejounte Murray - PG/SG, at GSW ($4,800)

Seeing how Dejounte Murray went the first two games without taking a three, then pulls four last game, you have to ride the upside. The Spurs don't have any other options to really resort to and why would they. This is the best thing for Murray's development as a whole and he will continue to produce like he has been. There is no way the Warriors will be able to keep Murray off the books because he will get rebounds and have the ball in his hands. If he can continue his shooting trend then Murray will have no problem cracking his projected.

Marcus Smart - SG, vs. MIL ($4,400)

Marcus Smart was upgraded to questionable for tonight's game and the Celtics need his defensive intensity and overall effort. Although he is coming off a hand injury that could hinder his movement, this is one of those games that Smart is notorious for blowing up in. Coming off an injury, team needing a win, without two of their star players behind Al Horford and a bunch of twenty year olds. If Smart does play, which is seeming more and more likely with every update, expect him to go sell out in true Marcus Smart fashion. If you think a hurt hand is going to keep Smart from being a menace on the court, just wait.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kyle Anderson - SF/PF, at GSW ($3,700)

Kyle Anderson has been playing better and better as the series has progressed. So seeing how he is coming off his only double-digit scoring effort of the series, expect him to continue to build on his performances. Anderson's methodic style of play makes it easy for him to carry momentum across games rather than shooting the lights out one night and going entirely cold the next. He knows when to take shots and usually makes the smart play and has yet to turn the ball over this series. Anderson is quietly stacking his playoff resume and although the Spurs might not win, Anderson is quickly building on his playoff performances for the better.

Thon Maker - PF/C, vs. BOS ($4,200)

Although his explosion seemed to be limited to just Game two, Thon Maker is still getting the minutes to produce. The Bucks frontcourt lacks the depth to completely avoid playing Maker and absences from games one and two shouldn't be seen as a lingering narrative. In the game he's played the most minutes, he was actually the least productive, but it's pretty easy to tell that if he's feeling it, he get's the minutes and absolutely produces. His price took a minor hike which will shed off a bunch of DFS-ers tonight, but I don't see the reason to fade Maker although he took a dip in usage.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Aron Baynes - C, vs. MIL ($3,900)

Aron Baynes has been scraping at double-doubles all season, like he should. As long as he will get 20 minutes a night, which he will, he should produce. His size makes it hard for him not to be a target down low and even though John Henson has the length to disrupt shots, Baynes easily has the size advantage. Look for Baynes to continue to be productive in his minutes although his overall impact on the game will still be minimal. Baynes is basically the official poster boy of being posterized.

Other DraftKings DFS Centers to Consider: JaVale McGee - PF/C, vs. SA ($3,800)
