Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks: Advice, values for Friday, April 7

Sporting News

Friday's nine-game slate is not suited for the conservative daily fantasy basketball player. The Spurs have already ruled out six of their players, Paul Millsap and Jameer Nelson will both be inactive, and DeMarcus Cousins, D'AngeloRussell, and Jordan Clarkson lead the list of questionable players. Add in the daily unknown of the Knicksand the locked-into-the-third seed Rockets, and tonight's slate is wide open.

Thetwo games with the highest Vegas point totals are the Pelicans-Nuggets (230.5) and the Thunder-Suns (227.5). This doesn't mean the lowest total game (Spurs-Mavs, 189.5), doesn't have fantasy potential, though. As always, projected point totals are an important part of any DFS strategy, so use these numbers wisely.
