FanDuel daily picks: Fantasy basketball lineup – April 16, 2018

4 of 4

Overall Advice

As mentioned, other players are going to load up on Sixers and Warriors. And there’s a reason for that. Both teams dominated in Game One and the Heat and Spurs don’t have one guy who you can count on to provide consistent numbers. You can build an entire lineup around Ben Simmons and Kevin Durant if you want. But you’ll need to identify at least one Spurs or Heat player to contribute. Or you can grab one guy and take the players around the other guy.

Explanation of the stars after each pick: Each one of my picks is ranked on a scale of one to five stars. Picks that I give five stars (∗∗∗∗∗) are players that you almost have to own and I have no reservations about owning at their price. Players that get four stars (∗∗∗∗) are players that I think are strong picks to build your roster around. Three-star players (∗∗∗) are middle-of-the-road solid picks who are fairly reliable to produce a good game. Picks receiving two stars (∗∗) are high-risk, high-reward players who do offer enough upside to be in my picks, but also have a significant risk factor that makes them dangerous. One star (∗) players are picks that are the best option around that price point, but who I don’t think are great options. I would take any one-star player over any option not in my picks, but they aren’t picks to build your roster around
