NBA DFS Friday, April 5th
A huge 13 game slate is on the schedule today in the NBA. There are plenty of options to pick your DFS lineups, and here are my NBA DFS picks for Friday, April 5th:
Russell Westbrook – Point Guard, Oklahoma City Thunder
This one is a no-brainer. The man had a 20-20-20 game the other day, the first one since Wilt in 1968. The Thunder are still fighting for a playoff seeding, and so do their opponents, the Pistons. So it will be a meaningful game for Russ, who will try to avoid seeing his best friend KD in the first round. I expect him to have another big triple-double, and that’s why he is my number one choice on Friday.
Goran Dragic has been great lately for the Heat since coming back from injury, and without Josh Richardson in the lineup, he is a legitimate no.1 option, and I believe he will have a great game trying to push Heat to the playoffs. And you can get him at the average salary price of 6500$ and 6300$ on FD and DK.
And if you really want to go cheap, I would look in the direction of Alex Caruso from the Lakers. He has been getting 30+ minutes a night in the absence of Lebron, Ingram, and Kuzma. And he is a pretty good player who can get you around 30 FPTS, and you’ll only pay 5200$ and 5100$ on FD and DK.
Pascal Siakam  - Power Forward, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam should have been an All-Star this year. Kyle Lowry went instead, but Siakam has been the best player on the team in the absence of Kawhi Leonard. It will be a travesty if he doesn’t win Most Improved Player award because he is playing great basketball on both ends of the court and has the numbers to back it up. The Raptors are playing in Charlotte, most likely without Kawhi, which means a heavier workload for Siakam.
LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin are the best alternatives at the position, but for some cheaper players, I would go with Domantas Sabonis, who is a constant double-double threat.
Dario Saric from Minnesota has been pretty solid lately, and will likely get you 20-30 FPTS at an affordable price.
Devin Booker – Shooting Guard, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker is a poster boy for putting big numbers on a terrible team. The team is straight up awful, but he is a legitimate candidate for an All-Nba team. Booker won’t get in because of the team record, but you couldn’t tell it by looking at his numbers. He is the best DFS shooting guard on Friday, and that includes James Harden because Harden is playing the Knicks, which means he will probably be done in less than 30 minutes. 
For some cheaper shooting guards, Terrence Ross is a great option and has been consistent all year from Orlando’s bench. Klay Thompson is another guy who you can pick and count on solid production.
Joe Ingles – Small Forward, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles or Jingles is one of my favorite NBA players. Receding hairline, non-athletic white guy who just doesn’t care. And he can drop 20 on you on any given night. He’s been playing great lately, and could be a great DFS option at the small forward position and is not extremely expensive. 
Bojan Bogdanovic is a similar guy, but he has been getting more attention lately as he became the no.1 scoring option for the Pacers.
Mitchell Robinson – Center, New York Knicks
Mitchell Robinson is starting for the Knicks, and he has been putting up great numbers. Always around a double-double, with high blocking and steal numbers, he is an excellent option at center. Unfortunately, he is not cheap anymore. For that kind of money or slightly more, you can get yourself a Nikola Vucevic or Karl Anthony Towns.
If you want to go cheaper, Enes Kanter is a solid option who will most likely get you a double-double as a starting center. He costs 7200 and 6900$ on FD and DK and is a good value for that price.
