NBA Daily Fantasy Helper for the Two-Day 5/14/17 and 5/15/17 Slate

Draymond Green is averaging 44.2 FanDuel points per game this postseason, and Golden State owns the slate's highest implied total. Which other players should we check out for this two-day slate?

If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and depending on injury news, even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.

With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer and a handful of other awesome tools to help give you an edge.

We'll also be coming at you with a primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.

Let's take a look at who you should target on the two-day slate that spans Game 1 of the West finals (3:30 p.m. EST Sunday) and Game 7 of the Boston-Washington series (8:00 p.m. EST Monday).

Best of the Best

Isaiah Thomas ($9,000): Thomas has struggled a bit since his 53-point (real-life points, that is) Game 2 outburst, but he's averaged 37 minutes per game over the last two and should be relied on heavily in a must-win affair. The Boston Celtics boast a 108.25-point implied total, the second-highest on the slate and just a touch behind Golden State's slate-best mark (110.5). Among teams on this slate, the Washington Wizards have allowed the most FanDuel points per game to point guards over the past four weeks, and Thomas' workload -- he owns a 32.2% usage rate in these playoffs -- makes him an appealing target.
