FanDuel daily picks: Fantasy basketball lineup – April 8, 2018

9 of 12
ATLANTA, GA – APRIL 4: John Collins
ATLANTA, GA – APRIL 4: John Collins /

High Value PF

John Collins, ATL at BOS ($6,000): Collins has been over value in four of his last five. As long as he plays over 30 minutes, he’ll be over value once again. He posts the highest usage rate of any Atlanta player in their last 15 games. He’s getting an opportunity to produce late in the season and is proving to be a value player for Atlanta this season and for seasons to come. ***

Ersan Ilyasova, PHI vs. DAL ($5,800): Even with Dario Saric back in the lineup, Ilyasova has been a great option for the Sixers since joining them. He needs 25.7 fantasy points hit value on Sunday. That should be no problem against the Mavericks. He’ll get the minutes to produce and he’ll be over 25 fantasy points without a problem. ****

Derrick Favors, UTA at LAL ($5,900): The Lakers are 24th against the position in their last 15 games. Favors had 26.6 fantasy points against them on Tuesday. That number puts him right at value on Sunday. He’ll play his usual 28-30 minutes, which means he should reach value. It’s a good matchup and the Jazz have plenty to play for against an overmatched Lakers squad. ****

Serge Ibaka, TOR vs. ORL ($5,900): Ibaka has been over 30 fantasy points in four of his last five. He had 29.5 fantasy points in the one game where he failed to crack 30. Playing time could be an issue on Sunday as the Raptors have nothing on the line, but he’s hot and you should continue to add him during this hot streak, especially against good matchups like the Magic. ***
