NBA Daily Fantasy Predictions 5/8/18 Who Should You Play on Tuesday?

There are two NBA Western Conference semifinal games taking place on Tuesday. Here’s our suggested Daily Fantasy plays for the two games.

Point Guard – Rockets’ James Harden (vs. Utah, 8PM ET) $10,400

Harden was somewhat quiet by his standards in Game 4, but still had 38 fantasy points. Prior to that he had at least 56 in each game, including two games over 60. With the series back in Houston, I expect him to return to his form of possibly putting up a triple-double as the Rockets close out the Jazz.

Shooting Guard – Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday (at Golden State, 10:30PM ET) $7,400

Holiday has been one of the best players for New Orleans in this series. He has at least 35 fantasy points in his last three games, with two over 45. He had 50 in Game 2 at Golden State. I think Holiday continues to shine as he has proven to be a matchup problem for the Warriors.

Small Forward – Jazz’ Jae Crowder (at Houston, 8PM ET) $5,100

Crowder had a pair of quiet games at home in this series, but in the two games at Houston, he combined for 65.75 fantasy points. With the Jazz on the brink of elimination, they will need Crowder to step up for them. I think Crowder will play with a lot of pride and put up a strong fantasy night.

Power Forward – Warriors’ Draymond Green (vs. New Orleans, 10:30PM ET) $8,100

Green has been pretty reliable in this series, because he doesn’t need points to have a strong fantasy night. He has racked up at least nine rebounds and nine assists in every game of the series. He had one triple-double and has been 1 rebound or 1 assist shy from two others.

Center – Rockets’ Clint Capela (vs. Utah, 8PM ET) $7,500

Capela has been a real issue for the Jazz to defend. He has at least 37.5 fantasy points in all four games of this series and he put up 51.25 in Game 4. Capela has 46 rebounds over four games in the series and also has 13 blocks. He’s been a handful for the Jazz and is constantly a target of Harden and Paul’s passing.
