Sunday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Playoffs continue on Sunday with two Western Conference playoff games. Here’s our Daily Fantasy suggestions for the day.
Point Guard – Pelicans’ Rajon Rondo (vs. Golden State, 3:30PM ET) $8,000
Rondo scored just four points in Game 3, yet amassed 49.5 fantasy points behind 21 assists and 10 rebounds. He is clearly the on-court leader for this team and having as good of a playoff run as any other guard when it comes to fantasy production. I am going to stick with him given his much more affordable price tag.
Shooting Guard – Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday (vs. Golden State, 3:30PM ET) $7,900
Holiday has had a great pair of games in this series, putting up 50 fantasy points in Game 2 and 45.75 in Game 3. He is getting a lot of shots while also attacking the glass and dishing out assists. Holiday has had at least 45 fantasy points in four of his last six games and I think it continues today.
Small Forward – Jazz’ Jae Crowder (vs. Houston, 8PM ET) $5,000
Crowder, like most of Utah, had a quiet Game 3 with only 18.25 fantasy points. The Jazz are going to need his physicality and toughness to help lead it back into the series tonight. He had 34.25 fantasy points in Game 1 and 31.5 in Game 2. If Utah hopes to have a chance tonight, Crowder has to return to that form.
Power Forward – Warriors’ Draymond Green (at New Orleans, 3:30PM ET) $8,100
Green was 1 assist shy of a triple-double in Game 3 despite the Warriors getting run out of the building for most of the game. Green is going to continue to be productive in a win or a loss, as he will always find ways to contribute. I would expect Golden State to bounce back somewhat today and Green will be their determined on-court leader.
Center – Rockets’ Clint Capela (at Utah, 8PM ET) $7,000
Capela continues to be a big contributor for Houston as he is getting a lot of easy looks at the basket thanks to Harden and Paul. He has put up at least 37 fantasy points in his last five games, with three over 45. I think he continues to rack up the points and rebounds in Game 4.
