Tuesday's NBA Daily Fantasy Picks
After a night off for the league, there are 13 NBA games taking place on Tuesday, April 3. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy suggestions for the night.
*Be sure to check your lineup before the start of the 7PM ET games. There have been some guys pulled due to rest lately that we can’t plan for.
Point Guard – 76ers’ Ben Simmons (vs. Brooklyn, 7PM ET) $9,600
With Joel Embiid out with his eye injury, Simmons has been taking it upon himself to lead Philly and he has been impressive doing so. He scored 54 fantasy points at Atlanta, recording a triple-double. He followed that up with 63.5 fantasy points at Charlotte. I expect more big things tonight against a poor Brooklyn defense. Simmons has recorded double-digit assists in six straight games and should get at least a double-double tonight.
Shooting Guard – Hornets’ Malik Monk (at Chicago, 8PM ET) $3,900
The Hornets are out of the playoff chase now, so they are giving some of their younger talent a chance to play. Monk has logged 24 minutes in each of his last two games, and he has put up 50.75 fantasy points over those two games. Against another tanking team like the Bulls, I like Monk to definitely go over value and provide around 30 fantasy points for a very cheap price.
Small Forward – Heat’s Josh Richardson (vs. Atlanta, 7:30PM ET) $5,900
Richardson continues to get big minutes for the Heat and comes with a cheap price tag. He has had a lot of success against the Hawks this season, averaging 23.5 points, 4 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 2 blocks per game. I expect another nice night for Richardson at home tonight.
Power Forward – Nuggets’ Paul Millsap (vs. Indiana, 9PM ET) $6,700
You may not be aware, but Millsap has scored 105 fantasy points over his last two games while getting 79 minutes of action on the floor. Even prior to that he had scored at least 32 fantasy points in two straight. I like Millsap to have another big night and the price is very affortable.
Center – Knicks’ Kyle O’Quinn (vs. Orlando, 7:30PM ET) $5,100
With Enes Kanter out on Saturday, O’Quinn had 15 rebounds and eight points against the Pistons while playing 32 minutes. Tonight, Kanter is doubtful to play and I don’t see New York risking him in a meaningless game. Expect O’Quinn to get a lot of minutes again and perform well over value.
