Friday's NBA DFS Picks
With a full slate of 10 games on the NBA lineup on Friday, April 6, 2018, who should you pick for your NBA Daily Fantasy lineup?
*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 – Hawks’ Tyler Dorsey (at Washington, 7PM ET) $3,900
Dorsey has logged good minutes lately as it seems he has won the right to start over the last few games of the season for the Hawks. Given that, he is worth a play with such a cheap price. Dorsey has scored at least 15 points in three straight and has over 26 fantasy points in his last two games. Use Dorsey so you can spend big in other areas.
Shooting Guard – Grizzlies’ Marshon Brooks (vs. Sacramento, 8PM ET) $5,200
An interesting option, Brooks has played in just three games this season, but he has put up over 31 fantasy points in all three. The Grizzlies are in tank mode and giving Brooks a chance to prove himself. He is doing just that. He has put up 21 points or more in all three games and should have another strong showing tonight against the Kings.
Small Forward – Cavs’ LeBron James (at Philadelphia, 7PM ET) $11,500
With cheap moves in the back court, you can comfortably go with LeBron tonight against the 76ers in a big game for Cleveland. The Cavs are just a ½ game up on Philly for the third seed in the East. Expect a competitive game where LeBron continues to rack up big numbers. He had 30 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists on March 1 against Philly and 30 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists at Philly on Dec. 9.
Power Forward – Bulls’ Lauri Markkanen (at Boston, 7:30PM ET) $6,300
Markkanen has scored at least 30 fantasy points in four straight as he has become a focus in the offense with the season winding down. He also is good for 6-8 rebounds a game. Tonight he faces a Boston team that has struggled against opposing forwards and centers, so I expect him to push for 40 fantasy points.
Center – Knicks’ Kyle O’Quinn (vs. Miami, 7:30PM ET) $5,700
O’Quinn has looked great replacing Kanter in the starting lineup, posting 71.75 fantasy points in two games. I expect more of the same tonight as he can contend for a double-double against a Miami team that has been inconsistent in its frontcourt lineup. With a price under $6K, O’Quinn definitely has great value.
