There’s $7,000 to be won in the Wednesday Swish competition today which is surely enough to get you over ‘hump day’! 7/10 of the recommended plays come from just one of the eight games of basketball today – read on to find out why! Here are our NBA DFS Tips
Dennis Schroder – $7,100
Dennis Schroder has been in fine form in his past two games, and this should continue today in a great matchup against the Phoenix Suns. Schroder has now put together 40.6 and 46.9 fantasy points consecutively, taking us back to his performances in early March when he sustained this type of scoring. It’s hard to pass up on Schroder today.
Tyler Ulis – $5,500
Tyler Ulis is the man standing across from Dennis Schroder tonight as the Suns battle the Atlanta Hawks. Ulis has seen plenty of game-time lately with 40+ minutes in five of his last six games. Through this time, he has cracked 34 fantasy points in four of these games – showing excellent scoring potential from a mid-range selection. The minutes and production should continue today as the Hawks also give up plenty of points to guards.
Tim Hardaway Jr. – $6,100
Speaking of the favourable matchup for both Hawks and Suns players, let’s get another one into our teams today by selecting Tim Hardaway Jr. The young Hawks guard doesn’t make his way into the recommendations that often because of relative inconsistency, but now can shine in a high-scoring and fast-paced game. Hardaway is averaging 28.3 fantasy points through his last five, showing his form is in the range of 5x value already.
Josh Richardson – $4,000
Josh Richardson has jumped right into the Miami rotation and has now seen 30+ minutes in all five of his last games. He’s managed 20+ fantasy points in four of these five games and immediately stands out as a great value selection at just $4,000.
TJ Warren – $6,800
Praising Suns and Hawks players before today’s game seems to be the recurring theme. Warren will be a major benefactor of the matchup and has a huge fantasy ceiling, as we are all aware. His last game was a 44 fantasy point scoring session against the Charlotte Hornets, and he’s managed to score in the high 30’s, and low 40’s consistently. Again, another selection that is hard to pass up on today.
Taurean Prince – $3,500
Taurean Prince has been making the most of his increased minutes and surprisingly has remained at $3,500 for the past two weeks. A $3,500 player realistically only needs around 17-18 points to have provided essential value, and anything more is a real bonus. Prince, however, has managed to crack 32.7 in his last game and has managed mid-high twenty’s consistently too.
Ersan Ilyasova – $5,100
Let’s not break the trend and bring in another Atlanta Hawks player, Ersan Ilyasova. Ilyasova has been in good form lately with an average of 25.9 fantasy points over his last five, but as we should now be all aware, we are just trying to cash in on the game between the Suns and the Hawks today that should provide huge value in the world of fantasy scores.
Larry Nance – $3,900
Want another low-end option to go with Taurean Prince today? Look no further. Luke Walton has been impressed with Nance’s effort on both ends and has rewarded him with increased playing time, as such. Without the playing time, Nance is never an option, but if he is going to be seeing close to 30 minutes, we can expect at least 24+ fantasy points from the young Lakers forward.
Dwight Howard – $7,500
Another one. I expect Dwight Howard to run wild out on the court today, also, considering that we’ve recommended just about every other player on the court. High-scoring games with a fast-pace mean plenty of rebounds, and we all know that Dwight Howard is a rebounding machine. He’s grabbed 16 rebounds in two of his last three games and today could be very similar. Howard is now rocking an average of 36.2 fantasy points over his last five, an impressive fantasy output from the big man in Atlanta.
Brook Lopez – $7,100
If you’re concerned about too much exposure to the Atlanta vs. Phoenix game, Brook Lopez is your man! Brook Lopez is playing against the 76ers, who give up an abundance of fantasy points to opposition center’s and what’s better is that there isn’t the overwhelming risk of a blowout, as per normal, because the Nets aren’t that much better than the 76ers. Lopez hasn’t been all that great lately, meaning that most entrants in competition today will have avoided playing him, but this is our chance to be unique.
