FanDuel daily picks: Fantasy basketball lineup – April 9, 2018

PORTLAND, OR - APRIL 1: Evan Turner

High Value PF

Jabari Parker, MIL vs ORL ($6,400): With Giannis Antetokounmpo out on Saturday, Parker picked up the start. He played 38 minutes and finished with 38.9 fantasy points. He needs 28.3 fantasy points to reach value on Monday. If Antetokounmpo is out once again, he’ll likely be over 30 fantasy points. Even if Giannis plays, Parker will be a big enough contributor off the bench to at least hit value. ****

John Henson, MIL vs ORL ($5,800): And if you don’t like Parker, there’s always Henson. He had 39.9 fantasy points with Antetokonmpo out of the lineup on Saturday. He saw more rebounding opportunities and picked up his usual double-digit points. If Antetokounmpo doesn’t play on Monday, his ceiling isn’t as high as Parker’s, but he’s available at a cheaper price and can deliver over 30 fantasy points. If Antetokounmpo plays, he’s not quite as attractive at this price. ***

Lauri Markkanen, CHI at BKN ($5,700): Markannen was rested on Saturday with the Bulls on a back-to-back, but he should be back in the lineup on Monday. He’s been great in recent contests, going over value in five straight. He’s not playing a ton of minutes, but he’s posting a high usage rate in the minutes he plays. The Nets are a great matchup and one he’ll be able to take advantage of. ***
