4/3/18 NBA Draftkings/Fanduel Picks
Tonight we have a huge slate with the regular season winding down with tons of intriguing value options to choose from. I have laid out three players who I think will be essential picks for a winning lineup.
Tyler Ulis- PG ($6.2k-DK) ($4.9k FD)- This is more of a fanduel play as his salary is drastically lower than on draftkings. The suns have completely turned to playing their core of young players while sitting their veterans. That mixed with the fact that they are without Devin Booker, TJ Warren, Elfrid Payton, Tyson Chandler and Alex len. Someone is going to have to provide offense and that should be Ulis. He his a great value pick.
Ersan Illyasova- SF/PF ($5.6k-DK) ($5.4k FD)- The 76ers are still fighting for a playoff position and are going to be without Embiid and Saric which is going to leave them very thin for bigs. Illaysova should fly under the radar and is a great pick as he can rack up points in many different categories. Especially considering Brooklyn can't stop centers or power forwards to save their lives.
Russell Westbrook-PG ($11.8k-DK) ($11.7k FD)- I love narratives when picking players for DFS and Westbrook obviously checks that box. Every time he plays golden state i always have to consider him as he steps his game up drastically against former teammate Kevin Durant. Westbrook has been putting up huge numbers recently and that trend should continue tonight. Quinn Cook who should be the one defending him tonight tonight have a prayer of stopping an angry westbrook fighting for playoff positioning.
As always good luck tonight!
