Saturday's NBA Daily Fantasy Picks

NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 4/21/18 Who should you play on Saturday?

The NBA Playoffs have four games on the schedule for Saturday. Here’s our Daily Fantasy plays for the day.

Point Guard – Pelicans’ Rajon Rondo (vs. Portland, 5PM ET) $7,600

Rondo has scored at least 41 fantasy points in all three games of this series. He has two double-doubles and at least 9 assists in each game. He should be able to continue his strong play this afternoon as the Pelicans look to close out the series.

Shooting Guard – Jazz’ Donovan Mitchell (vs. Oklahoma City, 10PM ET) $7,400

Mitchell has been great in this series, putting up 91 fantasy points over two games. He had 27 points in Game 1 and 28 in Game 2 to go along with handfuls of rebounds and assists. The rookie is definitely not lacking in confidence entering this series, so I expect more good things today.

Small Forward – Blazers’ Al-Farouq Aminu (at New Orleans, 5PM ET) $5,500

Aminu has been one of the few bright spots for the Blazers in the series. He had 37.25 fantasy points in Game 1 and 39 fantasy points in Game 2. He has been able to handle himself quite well against the Utah frontcourt while getting double-digit shot attempts in both games. For his price tag, Aminu is a great option today.

Power Forward – 76ers’ Dario Saric (at Miami, 2:30PM ET) $6,500

Even with Embiid returning to the lineup, Saric was still very productive for the 76ers in Game 3. He had 21 points with four 3-pointers and finished with 37.75 fantasy points. Saric has had at least 33 fantasy points in each game of this series.

Center – Jazz’ Derrick Favors (vs. Oklahoma City, 10PM ET) $5,300

Favors had 48.5 fantasy points in the Game-2 win for the Jazz, as he was able to pull down 16 rebounds to go with 20 points. He played 37 minutes and provided the Jazz with a big spark in the paint. I expect Utah to go back to him tonight. With Steven Adams tied up with Rudy Gobert, Favors should continue to flourish.
