Damian Lillard ($9,600 FD, $8,900 DK)- Lillard has struggled in the first two games of the series but I’m banking on him coming out desperate tonight and putting the team on his back.
Rajon Rondo ($7,000 FD, $7,400 DK)- Playoff Rondo is back and has helped the Pelicans jump out to a 2-0 lead. Look for Rondo to continue his playoff success tonight.
Other good buys: Goran Dragic ($6,300 FD, $6,300 DK).
Jrue Holiday ($8,400 FD, $7,900 DK) – Holiday has been outstanding so far and is finally getting recognition across the league. He should be even better at home.
Klay Thompson ($6,500 FD, $6,800 DK) – Thompson has stepped up without Curry in the first two games and there’s no reason he will slow down as the series shifts to San Antonio.
Other good buys: Dwyane Wade ($4,900 FD, $5,400 DK).
Kevin Durant ($11,000 FD, $10,300 DK) – Durant is the obvious play here and he will probably be the highest owned player on the slate but he should be worth it as he’s as close to a guarantee as you can get on today’s slate.
Other good buys: Josh Richardson ($5,800 FD, $5,500), Ben Simmons ($10,200 DK).
Anthony Davis ($12,700 FD, $11,200 DK)- Just like the rest of the Pelicans’ stars AD has played lights out in the first two games of the series and with the series shifting to NOLA now, look for AD to try to close out the series.
Ben Simmons ($10,200 FD)- It looks like Embiid will miss another game, meaning another heavy workload for Simmons and a bunch of fantasy points.
Other good buys: Nikola Mirotic ($8,000 FD, $7,000 DK).
Zach Collins ($3,500 FD, $3,600 DK)- The center position is a rough spot today, especially on FanDuel. There is no play that seems better than the next and that’s why I would go with Collins today. He’s played 21 minutes in back-to-back games and at his salary he gives you salary flexibility.
