NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel Basketball Advice for 5/15/16


The NBA playoffs are starting to come to an end.

FanDuel is now doing two-day two-game slates, so it is very difficult to find value, but let's give this a shot.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy NBA lineup picks for FanDuel on 5/15/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays on FanDuel.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Stephen Curry (vs OKC, $11,100)

Stephen Curry gets a great matchup tomorrow against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has been great so far this postseason, aside from when he was out due to injury. In his last two games, he is averaging right around 55 fantasy points. The Thunder are not great defensively, and this is going to turn into a shootout very quick. Curry should outscore all other guards on the board tonight, barring a great game from Russell Westbrook. Westbrook is the same price, but Curry has more upside due to his ability to take the game over, especially if Draymond Green needs to sit out of the game tomorrow. Westbrook has to compete with Kevin Durant.

Goran Dragic (at TOR, $6,400)

Goran Dragic has huge upside tonight against the Toronto Raptors. He has been extremely solid so far this series, and in his last game, he exploded for over 40 fantasy points in 38 minutes on the court. He has been playing right around 40 minutes per game, and he will continue to play that much today. He is a very effective scorer, and the Raptors do not have a great defense. His price tag is lower than most guards with his upside.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kevin Durant (at GS, $10,100)

Kevin Durant should take over the game for the Oklahoma City Thunder, as he has done over and over again in the playoffs throughout his career. The Golden State Warriors are going to push the pace of the game, which really increases Durant's upside, as he will be more likely to grab rebounds, dish out assists, and score baskets. His price tag is up, but it is much lower than Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry. He has over 30 fantasy points in nine straight games now, and he has over 45 fantasy points in two of his last three games.

Patrick Patterson (vs MIA, $3,800)

Patrick Patterson is extremely cheap tonight against the Toronto Raptors, and he should be able to at least hit value. He has been playing around 30-40 minutes per game, which is plenty for him to produce. He has 15 plus fantasy points in two straight games, and his upside is through the roof. While Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan will likely not allow him to handle the ball or take shots too often, he should be involved enough to post around 15-20 fantasy points.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Steven Adams (at GS, $5,200)

Steven Adams has been great so far this postseason. In his last game, he posted over 30 fantasy points in 40 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing him to play huge minutes due to his ability to rebound. HE has double-digit rebounds in seven straight games now, and he should continue to rebound well against the Golden State Warriors tomorrow. He has great upside for his price tag, and he is the best center option on the board.
