Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Luka Doncic dropped 36 points in a blowout loss to Washington on Friday, hitting 11-of-22 shots and 10-of-10 free throws with seven rebounds, six assists, one block and four triples in 36 minutes. Dallas came into tonight with five wins in their previous six games but were rocked by a motivated Washington team that got some big time production from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and former Maverick, Kristaps Porzingis. Dallas is fighting with the Warriors for the No. 3 seed, but getting Luka to the postseason with fresh legs may be the bigger priority which means we need to look out for a DNP or two. April 6th vs. Detroit and April 8th vs. Portland look like prime opportunities for a breather.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes
Khris Middleton (wrist) is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup vs. the Mavericks. Middleton and other key starters should be back in the lineup Sunday night after a one-game absence, fantasy managers should make sure he is in their active lineups before tomorrow's game.
