Friday's NBA Daily Fantasy Picks

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 4/20/18 Who should you play on Friday?

The NBA Playoffs schedule for Friday features another set of three games. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy predictions for tonight’s action.

Point Guard – Raptors’ Delon Wright (at Washington, 8PM ET) $4,500

Wright has been doing quite well off the bench for the Raptors in this series. He had 18 points, four assists and three steals in Game 1 and followed that up with 11 points, three assists and three steals in Game 2. With few games, you need a cheap player that can push for 30 fantasy points. Wright is that option.

Shooting Guard – Celtics’ Jaylen Brown (at Milwaukee, 9:30PM ET) $6,500

I have played Brown in the first two games of this series and he has come through nicely, scoring 34.5 fantasy points in Game 1 and 39.75 in Game 2. Brown has had to take on a big scoring role for Boston due to the injury to Kyrie Irving. I see no reason for that to change with the series moving to Milwaukee.

Small Forward – Cavs’ LeBron James (at Indiana, 7PM ET) $11,800

It’s a heavy price but LeBron is the player I trust the most to produce big points game-in and game-out in the postseason. He single-handedly led most teams to winnings on Wednesday with his 73.5-fantasy point performance. With the series shifting to Indiana, he is needed to step up more than ever. LeBron relishes the bad guy role on the road and will be ready to give his all again.

Power Forward – Pacers’ Thaddeus Young (vs. Cleveland, 7PM ET) $5,100

Young is a bit of a scary play. He hasn’t been terribly strong in this series, including posting just 14.25 fantasy points in Game 1. However, he has logged over 30 minutes in each of the two games in the series. I think that eventually will pay off in a big showing. You need cheap options and guys that are on the court can produce more than guys that aren’t. Young had a stretch late in the season where he was putting up over 30 fantasy points regularly. I think he has that potential tonight at home.

Center – Raptors’ Serge Ibaka (at Washington, 8PM ET) $6,000

Ibaka has put up over 30 fantasy points in both games of the series, including 46 in Game 1. The Raptors are a little cluttered in the paint, but he is playing more minutes than Jonas Valanciunas through both games. Ibaka has the potential to score and also the potential to rack up good numbers in other areas like rebounds, steals and blocks. I like him to get to 30 fantasy points again tonight and possibly push for 50 if he is a focal point in the offense.
