NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel Basketball Advice for 5/22/16-5/23/16


Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Toronto Raptors - these are the teams left competing for the NBA Championship.

There are not too many great fantasy options anymore, as prices have adjusted well, but let's dig anyway.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy NBA lineup picks for FanDuel on 5/22/16-5/23/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays on FanDuel.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Russell Westbrook (vs GS, $9,800)

Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook are back at it again tonight. The game is in Oklahoma City, which is an advantage for Westbrook, but the real reason he gets the nod over this season's MVP is because of his consistency in non-scoring categories. He has double-digit assists in three straight games, and the scoring will come. Curry is scoring, but he is not assisting the ball or picking up rebounds. This makes Westbrook's upside slightly higher. He can be used in both 50/50 contests and tournaments.

Kyrie Irving (at TOR, $7,400)

Kyrie Irving has been solid all postseason, and it looks like Kyle Lowry is slumping again. Irving has over 30 fantasy points in 10 plus straight games. He posted over 40 two games ago against the Toronto Raptors in only 30 minutes on the court. In his next game, he played 37 minutes, so if he sees around 40 minutes again tonight, his upside is through the roof. LeBron James will take over the game, if it gets close toward the end, but Irving should have done enough damage by then to hit value. He is cheaper than the other guard options on the board, as well.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

LeBron James (at TOR, $10,100)

LeBron James posted over 55 fantasy points in his last game, which was obviously against the Toronto Raptors. He played 34 minutes, in what was a closer game than the first. As long as this next game stays close, James is going to post a huge stat line. He triple-doubled last game, and he will do much of the same thing, as long as the Raptors keep pace. James has been great all postseason, and he gets the easiest matchup of any of the forwards tomorrow.

Harrison Barnes (at OKC, $4,500)

Harrison Barnes is much cheaper than most forward options tonight for the Golden State Warriors. His price tag is under $5,000, and he has been posting solid fantasy numbers for the last two games. He has yet to score under 20 fantasy points against the Golden State Warriors this series. He is playing 30 plus minutes and picking up valuable rebounds, assists, and buckets. It is difficult to find solid value plays in the NBA playoffs, especially this late, so utilizing Barnes' consistency in both 50/50 contests and tournaments is a great idea.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Steven Adams (vs GS, $5,200)

Steven Adams failed to double-double for the first time in five games on May 18 against the Golden State Warriors. He only posted 21 fantasy points that night. Prior to that, he posted a double-double and over 25 fantasy points in four straight games. In three of those games, he posted over 30 fantasy points. He has been rebounding like Andre Drummond this entire postseason, and as long as he scores, he should crush value. He makes for an extremely play, especially considering his low price tag.
