FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Wednesday (4/10)

Rudy Gobert should still be involved this evening for the Jazz

Navigating the final day of the regular season will be a challenge, with so many starters resting, and several teams playing for next season. However, there are still battles for playoff spots going on even this late in the proceedings. These final suggestions focus, for the most part, on those teams still trying to climb a rung on the ladder. As usual, to provide a range of salaries, the combined total must be less than FanDuel’s $60k budget; this week there is $1,300 to spare.

Check out today’s NBA Shot from FanDuel >>

Point Guard

Derrick White (SA): $6,600 vs. DAL
White carries some risk given his salary, so there’s a certain leap of faith in playing him. But he has a good matchup against the Mavericks and he is capable of scoring 20+ points. He could pleasantly surprise in this one.

Devonte’ Graham (CHA): $3,500 vs. ORL
Graham has seen double-digit points two of his last four games, but a paltry two points in each of the other two. He is a bargain-bin lucky-dip who could pay off with the Hornets still pushing to get into the playoffs.

Shooting Guard

Khris Middleton (MIL): $6,600 vs. OKC
The Bucks have the number one spot locked up, but Middleton should nonetheless see close to the 26 minutes and 22 points he has seen in his last three games, contributing to 33 FPTS per game.

D’Angelo Russell (BKN): $8,800 vs. MIA
Russell’s turnaround this season has been a driving force for the Nets making the postseason. He’s scored 20+ points in his last five games, averaging 25.8 points, with three double-doubles along the way.

Small Forward

Paul George (OKC): $10,100 @ MIL
The Thunder are finding their form at just the right time, with the George-Westbrook combo clicking. This means big scoring from George, who has dropped 25+ points in seven of his last eight games, averaging 27.1 points over that span.

Rodney Hood (POR): $4,200 vs. SAC
Hood played well when filling in for CJ McCollum, but has seen his numbers taper off with McCollum’s return. Yet he’s seeing at least 20 minutes per game and could be featured closer to the 30-minute mark if the Blazers’ choose to minimize risk to their starters heading into the playoffs.

Power Forward

Al-Farouq Aminu (POR): $5,500 vs. SAC
Aminu has averaged 39 FPTS in his two games, going just one point either side of that average. Even with C.J. McCollum returning, Aminu still contributed with a double-double in each of those two games.

Georges Niang (UTA): $3,600 @ LAC
Niang is a dart throw that has a good chance of scoring. He’s totaled 22 FPTS in his last two games, having suddenly seen 20+ minutes. He’s capable enough if he gets the playing time to be a value play.

Center

Rudy Gobert (UTA): $10,400 @ LAC
Gobert has tallied nine consecutive double-doubles, averaging 18.7 points and 12.8 rebounds.  He’s averaged 45.7 FPTS over that span. He’ll be just as involved the Jazz final game of the season.
