FANDUEL NBA LINEUP TIPS: It’s a very short four-game slate for Tuesday’s NBA schedule tipping off at 7:30 pm EST. With a shorter set of games, there should be good value plays. The Milwaukee Bucks at the Atlanta Hawks, the Golden State Warriors at the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics at the Los Angeles Lakers, and lastly the Sacramento Kings at the Phoenix Suns.
These are my FANDUEL NBA Lineup DFS picks for this Thursday, April 15.
Trae Young $9,100
Young was supposed to come back on Tuesday but missed the game and once again is probable. Young is a good play if he plays tonight because players like Jrue Holiday have been priced up due to Giannis’s absence.
Darius Garland $6,700, Dennis Schoder $6,600, Brandon Goodwin $3,800
If Collin Sexton gets ruled out in tonight’s matchup, Garland wouldn’t be a bad option as he is a point-per-minute player. In his last four games, he has been averaging 23.5 PPG, 6.8 APG, 2.5 RPG, and 1.3 steals per game.
Schoder has been one of the more consistent players in the last three games putting up at least 19 points in each of the three games.
This is one of the better value plays if Young sits tonight again.He has been playing well with the boost in minutes and produced against the Toronto Raptors. Goodwin had 18 points, three assists, and five rebounds, and two steals in 37 minutes.
Devin Booker $9,000
Booker did not have a good game against the Miami Heat as he only had 20.1 FP. This is a better matchup for Booker as Kings play a fast-paced offense and are not that good on defense.
Kevin Huerter $5,400
Huerter played well against the Raptors with Young sitting. Huerter shouldn’t be a bad option at this price tag even if Young plays because Danilo Gallinari is also questionable for today’s game.
Kyle Kuzma $6,500
Kuzma is appropriately priced on this slate, but he is one of the three Lakers whose usage rate will continue to remain high. He did play well against the Hornets as he had 31.3 FP in 34 minutes of action.
Buddy Hield $6,100, Kent Bazemore $5,000
Hield played 35 minutes against the Washington Wizards and had 31.6 FP. he should play around the same amount of minutes against the Suns.
Bazemore continues to draw the start as Kelly Oubre is dealing with his injury. He will most likely play around 30-32 minutes against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is a value play.
Giannis Antekounmpo $11,100
Antetokounmpo would be the top option in today’s slate if he does play. The matchup is perfect because the Atlanta Hawks play at a high pace and he has missed the last six games. In a short slate, Giannis should be the one player you should target.
Draymond Green $7,100, Kevin Love $6,300
Green is known to put up great numbers on the stat sheet as he had a great triple-double performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, He had 12 points, 16 assists, and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes. The negative is this game could be another blowout.
Love might be on some minutes restriction but played 26 minutes against the Charlotte Hornets, and had a double-double. If he does play, he should get around 30 minutes of playing time.
DeAndre Ayton $7,400
Ayton could really take advantage of Richaun Holmes not playing in tonight’s game. Hassan Whiteside and Damian Jones should get around 20-25 minutes each. Ayton has gotten a double-double in five of his last six games.
Andre Drummond $6,800, Hassan Whiteside $5,000
Drummond is basically a point per minute player with the Lakers this season. It has been frustrating playing him because if he gets 30+ minutes, he can definitely get around 40-45 FP in a game. He will most likely be low-owned on this slate so you could take advantage of the opportunity.
If you are looking for a very cheap center, Whiteside could be a value play as he could pay off his price tag off the bench with just around 20 minutes of playing time. Richaun Holmes has already been ruled out this game against the Suns.
