FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (4/27/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Two games on the slate tonight, with Game 1 of Raptors/76ers kicking the night off, followed by Game 7 of Spurs/Nuggets. Did you realize the two-seed in the West was in danger of losing this round? Have you paid attention to this series at all?

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 4/27/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Jamal Murray - PG, DEN vs SAS (FD - $7,700)

Aside from a bad Game 3, Jamal Murray's had a good series against the Spurs, and if we take Game 3 out of the picture, he's taken at least 14 shots in each game, scored at least 16 points, and has done a good job passing the ball over the last three games of the series. Always a threat to give you multiple steals as well, it feels like we're in for a big night for Murray as the Nuggets try to advance on their home floor. I also like him over venturing into the Ben Simmons/Kyle Lowry battle in Toronto tonight, where both guys present some question marks that I'm not comfortable with until we've seen a game of this series.

Gary Harris - SG, DEN vs SAS (FD - $4,800)

Remember when Gary Harris was everyone's pick to break out and then this past season happened and he faded into the background due to injuries. Well, Harris is only the fourth-most expensive shooting guard on this slate and is actually cheaper than teammate Torrey Craig. Harris has had a solid series, averaging 15.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while shooting 50 percent from the field. Noting spectacular, but aside from an eight-point outing in Game 4, he's been a solid scorer, and he made up for some of those Game 4 struggles by grabbing his most rebounds of the series.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kawhi Leonard - SF, TOR vs PHI (FD - $9,700)

Sometimes, you just have to go with what you know, which is that Kawhi Leonard is very good at basketball and that he hit the 30-point threshold in two of the three games he played against the Sixers in the regular season. Leonard also averaged 7.7 rebounds per game against Philadelphia and had at least three steals in each game. The 76ers don't have a great way of stopping him -- the best they can do is throw Ben Simmons at him -- and Leonard had a strong opening round, averaging 27.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 3.0 assists against the Magic.

Serge Ibaka - PF, TOR vs PHI (FD - $5,300)

The Sixers are thin defensively up front beyond Joel Embiid, so expect Ibaka to go well when Marc Gasol sits and he slides down to the five against Philly's backup bigs, especially if he goes up against Boban Marjanovic. Ibaka's first round was solid but unspectacular as he scored 9.4 points in 20 minutes per night while also adding 7.2 rebounds and a block and hitting 51.4 percent of his shots. Ibaka can also step to the outside, and he feels like a guy with a really solid floor in this series.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Jakob Poeltl - C, SAS @ DEN (FD - $5,100)

So, obviously, Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic headline tonight's center group, but if you do want to explore the cheaper options, I like Poeltl in his matchup against Jokic. Over the last four games of the series, Poeltl is averaging 9.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game, and he's been strong on the offensive glass. He's also hitting 73.9 percent of his shots over that stretch and playing 28.6 minutes per game, so Poeltl's minutes feel pretty safe in this one. If the Spurs advanced, Poeltl's work inside tonight can be a big factor.
