Thursday's NBA DFS Picks

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 4/19/18 Who should you play on Thursday?

Thursday’s NBA Playoffs schedule features another three games. Here’s our suggested Daily Fantasy plays for the three games that will be taking place tonight.

Point Guard – Pelicans’ Rajon Rondo (vs. Portland, 9PM ET) $7,400

Rondo has been on a roll, scoring over 41 fantasy points in his last three and in both games of this series. He has racked up an impressive 26 assists with 18 rebounds and 22 points in the last two contest, playing 39 minutes in both games. Look for more of the same from the determined veteran at home tonight.

Shooting Guard – 76ers’ JJ Redick (at Miami, 7PM ET) $5,200

Redick had a poor shooting night in Game 2 and it led to just 20.75 fantasy points. He was only 1 of 7 from the arc in the loss for the 76ers. The last two times he hit just one 3-pointer, he followed it up with 5 3-pointers in the next game. I think Redick bounces back in a big Game 3 tonight.

Small Forward – Warriors’ Andre Iguodala (at San Antonio, 9:30PM ET) $4,800

Iggy had a strong Game 2 with 35.35 fantasy points while handling some point guard duties. He will probably do more of the same tonight as Steph Curry remains out. If Iguodala can shoot somewhat well, he can really exceed value with his ability to pass and get rebounds and steals.

Power Forward – 76ers’ Dario Saric (at Miami, 7PM ET) $6,600

Saric has been a big part of the 76ers during the series, scoring 81.25 fantasy points over the two games. He had 47.75 in the Game-2 loss thanks to nine rebounds and four steals. He has scored at least 20 points in his last three games and should continue to be a big part of the offense with Philly going with a smaller lineup.

Center – Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (vs. Portland, 9PM ET) $10,900

Davis didn’t have a monster game for New Orleans in the Game-2 victory, posting just 47.25 fantasy points. However, if the Pelicans are going to win this series, he’s going to have to emerge as the dominant force he is. He has had three straight double-doubles and the Blazers are dealing with an injury to their center Jusuf Nurkic. Davis should be able to completely dominate the paint tonight.
