Get your fix of NBA right in the middle of the week today with six excellent games of basketball. NBA DFS Tips:
Plenty of top-level basketballers will take the court today and that means we’ll have to be careful how we spend our salary.
Start reading our tips for today’s $8,000 Wednesday Swish Special.
Damian Lillard ($9,900)
Damian Lillard is the best play at point guard tonight by a long way.
Not only has Lillard been performing well, but he is coming up a relatively weak Sacramento Kings team who allow a significant increase in points scored from opposing point guards.
Lillard’s also coming off a big game in which he scored 58.5 fantasy points.
Jamal Murray ($7,000)
Jamal Murray might not be the ‘crash hot’ player you’re looking for, he’s certainly getting enough court time to do work. He’s seeing about 35 minutes per game and looks almost certain to score well in a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers today.
Bradley Beal ($9,100)
Much like how Lillard is the best point guard available today, Bradley Beal should be your go-to selection if you’re looking to pay up for a shooting guard.
Beal has stepped up in a big way since John Wall has been out and looks to be carrying the load for the Wizards for the time being.
Buddy Hield ($5,500)
Buddy Hield seems to be the play if you’re looking for a low to mid-end shooting guard to fill out your team.
Hield’s been scoring well, with results of 26.5, 29.1, and 37.8, in his last three games – all of which are excellent returns from his salary.
LeBron James ($11,600)
Will you pick Giannis Antetokounmpo or LeBron James today?
The thing that I like about LeBron James right now is that his floor has been superb. In his last eight games, he has not scored under 51.0 fantasy points. He’s also managed a high of 72.5 fantasy points through this time.
So, you might not get the same upside as Giannis, but you are certainly getting a safer pick in LeBron.
Markieff Morris ($6,200)
This one might seem a little strange because Markieff hasn’t hit 5x value in any of his last five games. However, he hasn’t been seeing as many minutes as we would hope for.
If he gets those minutes today against the Bucks, he’ll be in for a great return – especially as the Wizards look to spread the ball around.
Al-Farouq Aminu ($5,100)
Al-Farouq Aminu’s minutes are through the roof right now.
He’s seeing upward of 32 minutes per game. Although the scoring isn’t there to go with it right now, it might just come as a result of being on the court for so long. We don’t need 30’s or 40’s from Aminu, a solid return of 25 fantasy points is enough to help us build our team.
Nikola Jokic ($9,900)
It’s possible that Nikola Jokic is the most played center today.
In his last four games, he has not scored under 52.8 and has also brought back a return of 74.5, as well.
It’s all a result of how Denver is letting the big man do his work now more than ever before. The results are certainly paying off for the team.
