Tuesday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Daily Fantasy schedule for Tuesday features a total of six games. Here’s our DFS picks for tonight’s action.
*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 – Lakers’ Tyler Ennis (vs. Houston, 10:30PM ET) $4,500
With Lonzo Ball out, Ennis is getting a chance to step up over these last few games of the season. Tonight, against Houston, the scoring should be up and he can push for his third game over 30 fantasy points in his last five. He had 22 points and six rebounds against the Jazz on Sunday and I think he can do more of the same today.
Shooting Guard – Jazz’ Donovan Mitchell (vs. Golden State, 9PM ET) $8,000
Mitchell continues to shine on the court and is coming off a 28-point, 9-rebound and 8-assist performance against the Lakers on Sunday. The Jazz have clinched a playoff spot, but still are in a very stacked battle for seeding in the West. They need this win over the Warriors tonight and Golden State isn’t exactly a defensive power.
Small Forward – Pacers’ Lance Stephenson (vs. Charlotte, 7PM ET) $4,500
Stephens isn’t someone I would normally suggest, but the Pacers are locked into their fifth seed and have no reason to push their starters against a Hornets team that will be playing backups for the most part as well. Stephens put up 38.5 fantasy points on Sunday at Charlotte with a double-double of rebounds and assists, so I think he can put up a nice total tonight as well.
Power Forward – Celtics’ Greg Monroe (at Washington, 8PM ET) $6,100
Monroe should continue to log good minutes as the Celtics don’t have anything to play for tonight against a rival, the Wizards. Washington needs this game but I don’t see Boston risking Horford or other stars in this one. Monroe has put up at least 26.5 fantasy points in four straight, including 56.75 points against the Bulls this past weekend.
Center – Hawks’ Dewayne Dedmon (vs. Philadelphia, 7:30PM ET) $5,200
Demon continues to get good minutes. While he had just 19 fantasy points against the Celtics on Sunday, he has scored 39 in two of his last four. He had some foul trouble on Sunday. Today I think he logs big minutes against the 76ers, who are without Embiid in the frontcourt.
