Saturday's NBA DFS Predictions
With injuries playing a big part of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, who should you insert into your NBA Daily Fantasy roster? Here’s our picks for the Rockets and Warriors tonight.
In a single game format on DraftKings, players get to selection six options at any position with a $50,000 budget. The winning total from Game 5 was around 200 points. Here’s our six picks for Game 6 tonight.
Rockets’ James Harden, $14,700: Harden had a pretty lackluster fantasy performance in Game 5, but that can’t happen tonight with Chris Paul out. This game will be all on Harden and he can’t come out flat. Despite his poor shooting, I think Harden will find ways to have big output.
Warriors’ Draymond Green, $12,100: Green has been a stud at home, posting double-doubles in Games 3 and 4 of this series. I think that should continue tonight with the series shifting back to Golden State. Green had some key turnovers in Game 5’s closing minutes, so he will be motivated to step up tonight.
Warriors’ Klay Thompson, $8,700: Thompson is back home where his shooting is usually a little stronger. With the struggles of the Golden State offense and Kevin Durant playing too much ISO, I expect the Warriors to move the ball more in Game 6 tonight. That should give Thompson some open looks on the arc.
Rockets’ P.J. Tucker, $7,900: Tucker has alternated good with bad in fantasy production this series, but is coming off just 19.25 fantasy points in Game 5. With Chris Paul out, the Rockets will need some other contributors and I think Tucker can help. Along with grabbing rebounds, he also can score.
Rockets’ Gerald Green, $3,600: Green is someone that could see increased minutes with Paul injured. He has seen steady run time during the series and has produced double-digit fantasy points in the last three games. He should be able to push for 20 fantasy points with more time on the court.
Warriors’ Shaun Livingston, $2,900: Livingston has not had big output, but still plays a respectable amount of time. He did put up 17 fantasy points in Game 3 of the series at home and I can see him getting more minutes if this game gets out of hand.
