FanDuel DFS Guards

George Hill - PG, at BOS ($4,100)

Hill has taken on a larger role for the Milwaukee Bucks, playing 24 minutes in each of the first two games of this series. He has only scored 12.7 and 15.9 fantasy points in those games, but Hill has flashed significantly better upside earlier in the season that he could find in this game. He also comes with a low enough price tag that he could be used as the dropped score. With little risk involved in playing Hill, and decent upside, even in a tough matchup, he makes a strong play for a low price tag.

Malik Beasley - SG, at POR ($4,400)

Beasley is another player that has found a new role in the new series. Through two games against the Portland Blazers in the playoffs, Beasley has seen 54 total minutes. He has also totaled 22 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, and 2 steals (44.9 fantasy points) in those games. More importantly, he has flashed consistency, scoring 20+ fantasy points in each of those games. Beasley don't come with as much upside as some of the other players on this slate, but he's a safe option for a low price tag, which is all we can ask for.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Nikola Mirotic - SF, at BOS ($4,400)

Mirotic hasn't been a great option throughout the playoffs, but that changed in his last game. He played 24 minutes, scoring 34.8 fantasy points. The Milwaukee Bucks are using a lineup with Giannis Antetokounmpo at center, which has allowed Mirotic to play more minutes. He also comes with added upside without Brook Lopez on the court. Mirotic comes with a bit of risk, but he's cheap enough to make a strong option in all leagues. He also makes a great salary relief pairing with Hill.

Paul Millsap - PF, at POR ($6,100)

Millsap was struggling early in the playoffs, but he has found his stride against the Portland Blazers. Portland has struggled against power forwards throughout the season, and Millsap has posted 31.7 and 37.2 fantasy points in the first two games of this slate. He's a double-double threat, who has the potential to contribute in each of the five categories. Millsap has performed well against the Blazers throughout the entire season, and there's very little reason to believe that will change tonight.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, at POR ($11,600)

Jokic makes an elite option for the Denver Nuggets tonight. He's the focal point of their offense, and he comes with tremendous triple-double potential. He's coming off of a down game, scoring only 44.3 fantasy points in his second matchup against the Portland Blazers. With that being said, he had posted 69.8, 66, and 77.9 fantasy points in his three games prior to that. Jokic will matchup against Enes Kanter, who is far from an elite defender. He's an option that can be considered in all leagues.
