Tuesday's NBA Daily Fantasy Plays
The NBA Playoffs on Tuesday features three important games. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy picks for the games taking place tonight.
Point Guard – 76ers’ Ben Simmons (at Philadelphia, 8PM ET) $10,100
Simmons has proven he is a big start with this series. Over four games he has put up at least 50 fantasy points. That includes a triple-double in Game 4 this past weekend. Simmons is going to continue to be productive. His size and athleticism is just so hard for others to deal with.
Shooting Guard – Heat’s Dwyane Wade (at Philadelphia, 8PM ET) $5,800
Wade has been a little up and down in this series, but I sense he will have a strong showing today with the Heat facing elimination. He had 43.75 fantasy points in Game 2 in Philly and then put up 35.25 in Game 4. I think he’s too proud to not have an impact in this must-win game for Miami.
Small Forward – Bucks’ Jabari Parker (at Boston, 7PM ET) $6,200
Parker had big games at home in wins for the Bucks so you have to believe they will continue to utilize him tonight in Game 5. He should continue to see big minutes. He had a combined 69.50 fantasy points over Games 3 and 4 and I think he can put up similar numbers tonight.
Power Forward – Celtics’ Jayson Tatum (vs. Milwaukee, 7PM ET) $6,000
Tatum has been up and down as well be he has high upside due to his ability to rack up rebounds, assists and steals. If Tatum can get some scoring, he should be able to put up a big number like he did in Game 1, where he had 45 fantasy points.
Center – Heat’s Hassan Whiteside (at Philadelphia, 8PM ET) $5,500
Whiteside finally broke through in Game 4, putting up 30.75 fantasy points while logging 26 minutes. Kelly Olynyk was nearly non-existent in the game and I think Whiteside should see more minutes again tonight. He had a double-double in Game 4 and he can really dominate the glass when he’s on his game.
