NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 4/10/19

The final night of the regular season is filled with prime value plays as teams rest their starters. Which lineups offer the most fantasy goodness?

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 ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.

We'll also be coming at you with this 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 today's main slate.

Best of the Best

Russell Westbrook ($12,100): This is a steep price tag with Russ on the second half of a back-to-back in a game that means very little, but there are still some seeding implications here, so the Oklahoma City Thunder might not entirely mail it in. Nobody in a meaningful game tonight is averaging any closer than five fantasy points per game fewer than Westbrook since the All-Star break, and ranking fifth in the NBA in FanDuel points per minute on the season, even a decreased workload could let him put up a reasonable fantasy score here. We don't need to be as sensitive to price on these crazy year-end slates as we do through most of the year, and even though it's a bit of an over-pay, Westbrook can lock you in with a solid floor and great ceiling here. Our models project him for the slate's highest fantasy score.
