FanDuel & DraftKings NBA Daily Picks: Fantasy lineup & advice 4/25/18
Here are five of the top fantasy players to strongly consider for daily fantasy in tonight’s slate of four Game 5s.
PG – Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors vs Washington Wizards
John Wall has been an absolute fantasy stud in these playoffs, but Lowry has been no slouch himself. He’s been on the cusp of 40 fantasy points in FanDuel scoring, which represents fine value given his price range. With the Raptors in need of a big game from their leader at home after back-to-back defeats, look for Lowry to deliver.
SG – Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards @ Toronto Raptors
After a rough first two games, Beal rediscovered his shooting stroke in a big way back in Washington. He had 31 points in Game 4, and he could’ve had a lot more had he not been in foul trouble, which limited him to just 32 minutes. There are a handful of great shooting guard options tonight, but Beal is the cheapest among them, and at his best he has just as much upside than the likes of Victor Oladipo and Donovan Mitchell.
SF – Paul George, Oklahoma City Thunder vs Utah Jazz
Playoff P hasn’t quite delivered to the same level as his outstanding Game 1, but he’s nevertheless been productive on a Thunder team that’s needed him to be. He’s averaging a team-high 27.3 points to go with 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals. With the Thunder facing a must-win situation in Game 5 against the Jazz, look for George to raise his game one more time to help keep OKC’s season alive.
PF – Carmelo Anthony, Oklahoma City Thunder vs Utah Jazz
Anthony has been one of the most surprising fantasy performers in these playoffs. He’s still shooting the ball horribly, which has seen him average an un-Melo-like 14 points per game in the series. However, he’s still rebounding and has suddenly added defensive stats to his fantasy game. He’s averaging two steals and a block in the first four games, which has helped him produce consistently strong fantasy outings. There’s a decent chance it finally dries up in Game 5, but with his relatively cheap price, it’s worth rolling the dice on Melo one more time.
C – Clint Capela, Houston Rockets vs Minnesota Timberwolves
After a couple of down performances, Capela bounced back in a big way in Game 4 with 14 points, 17 rebounds, and four blocks. It’s that sort of impressively high upside that makes the Swiss big man such an appealing fantasy option. That’s why Capela remains the preferred choice at center over the likes of Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns.
