FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (4/1/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

As we enter the final full week of the regular season, things are getting a bit more complicated on the fantasy front. With many clubs having nothing left to play for, rotations will become even more complex and intricate as established players sit and teams look to evaluate talent for next season. The injury report is loaded with some big names including Wesley Matthews, Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow, Al Horford, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Rodions Kurucs, Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, Otto Porter, Allonzo Trier, Noah Vonleh, Taj Gibson, Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic, Derrick Favors, Kevin Love, T.J. Warren, Tyler Johnson, Deandre Ayton, and Richaun Holmes, who have all been either ruled out, or are in danger of not playing. Be sure to keep an eye on things throughout the day as some more players will pop up randomly, making things even more challenging.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 4/1/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Reggie Jackson - PG, @ IND ($5,500)

With the absence of Blake Griffin, who was out of the lineup due to a sore knee, Jackson stepped up to lead his team past the Trail Blazers to retain the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, leading the Brooklyn Nets by a half a game as of this writing. The veteran wasn't shy in his efforts against Portland, scoring a game-high 28 points on 10-for-22 shooting from the field, which also included draining three of his six shot attempts from deep while adding in five rebounds, five assists, and a block for good measure. With Griffin sidelined once again on Monday night, look for Jackson, along with Wayne Ellington, to get some extra looks at the rim.

Walter Lemon Jr. - SG, @ NYK ($3,500)

After spending time in New Orleans last season for only a cup of coffee, Lemon received a chance to play for his hometown Bulls after being called up from their G-League affiliate over the weekend as a result of the injuries to Zach LaVine, Otto Porter, and Kris Dunn. The Chicago native was dominate against the Toronto Raptors in his first appearance for the parent club, finishing with an impressive 19 points and four steals throughout 31 minutes off of the bench. He left a lasting impression, so much so that he will get the starting nod on Monday night against the Knicks, likely receiving a healthy amount of time on the floor which will lead to plenty of chances on the offensive end for the journeyman.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Josh Jackson - PF, vs. CLE ($5,300)

With the Suns dealing with a plethora of injuries, Jackson will start at the four spot against a hideous Cleveland Cavaliers squad. Though Jackson saw 30 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday after missing his previous three contests with an ankle ailment, he was only able to finish with 10 points on a rough shooting night. If he can get it going, especially from deep, he will likely hit his value with no trouble on Monday evening.

Jonah Bolden - PF, @ DAL ($4,5o0)

Bolden drew the spot-start against the Timberwolves on Saturday in place of Joel Embiid, who will rest during the team's three-game road trip for load management reasons. The 23-year-old looked great against Minnesota, scoring 19 points, which included going 5-for-7 from deep, and throwing in eight boards and three blocks in his first game over 30 minutes of the season. He is due to start at the five once again against the Mavs on Monday and should get plenty of action for a Sixers team that virtually has the third seed locked up in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt and looking to rest its core group.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Mitchell Robinson - C, vs. CHI ($8,000)

Robinson has been getting a healthy dose of minutes, averaging 33 of the last two games. He has been productive as well, averaging 49.5 fantasy points per game over that same span. He isn't a significant source of scoring, but he can always be counted on to get busy defensively and on the glass.
