NBA DFS Top Plays for Tuesday 4/18/23
Donovan Mitchell may have seen a decrease in his price on both DraftKings and FanDuel, but that doesn’t mean he’s any less of a top play for Tuesday’s slate. Mitchell put up an impressive performance over the opening weekend, and he’s looking to continue that trend in Game 2 against the New York Knicks.
While this game may not project very well with an implied total of 213.5 at the time of writing, Mitchell has been taking charge for the Cleveland Cavaliers, taking 30 shots in Game 1 and boasting a 31% usage rate.
Looking at the other projected starters, Mitchell stands out as one of the top options at the shooting guard position, with his impressive FP/G and USG% in this playoff series. While Derrick White, Devin Booker, Dejounte Murray, Eric Gordon, and Quentin Grimes round out the group, Mitchell’s ability to take over games and deliver high-scoring performances puts him in a league of his own.
In conclusion, don’t overlook Donovan Mitchell in Tuesday’s slate. Priced at $9,200 on DraftKings and $10,200 on FanDuel, he may be a bit cheaper than some of the other stars in the league, but he has the potential to deliver big-time production and lead your lineup to victory.
In Game 1 of the Clippers’ series against the Suns, Leonard exploded for 56 DraftKings points, reminding everyone of his dominance on the court. With a price tag of $9,400 on DraftKings and $10,300 on FanDuel, he’s not cheap, but his high usage rate and guaranteed workload make him a solid play.
Leonard has been seeing a massive boost in usage with Paul George out of the lineup due to injury. He’s getting plenty of shots and playing 35-40 minutes per game, making him a top play at the small forward position. He’s also put up back-to-back games with at least 52 DraftKings points, showing that he’s in top form.
Tonight, Leonard is guaranteed to see another heavy workload with George remaining out. At this price, he could be the best play on the slate. Kawhi Leonard is a proven playoff performer who’s been delivering big numbers. With a high usage rate and guaranteed workload, he’s a top play at the small forward position.
Darius Garland is an All-Star player who has been undervalued in the DFS pricing. He is priced close to $7,000, which is too low for a player who averaged over 39 DK points per game in the regular season. He should be locked into 40 minutes of playtime in this must-win game for Cleveland.
Garland has been a key contributor for the Cavaliers and has proven himself to be a reliable option for DFS players. He is expected to maintain his strong performance in this matchup against the New York Knicks. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of his low price and benefit from his high potential.
Jaylen Brown had a solid performance in Game 1, showcasing his scoring ability and leading the Celtics offensively. With a favorable matchup against the Hawks, who ranked last against SFs in the regular season, Brown should have plenty of opportunities to produce in Game 2. He’s a great option for those looking for salary relief while still expecting high upside.
On the other hand, Jayson Tatum is the highest-priced player on the slate for a reason. He’s been consistent all season and has a phenomenal track record against Atlanta, averaging 53 fantasy points per game in their three matchups. With the Hawks allowing the most fantasy points to opposing forwards, Tatum is a must-have in every cash game lineup. Don’t let his price tag scare you off, he’s worth every penny.
In summary, both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum offer tremendous upside in Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks. With Brown providing salary relief and Tatum offering elite production, both players should be strongly considered for your DFS lineups.
