NBA DFS Top Plays for Tuesday 4/4/23
As we approach Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate, there are a few players who stand out as top plays, and one of them is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder. SGA has been on fire lately, scoring at least 41 DraftKings (DK) points in 32 of his last 33 games and averaging an impressive 52-point output during that span. He has been the driving force behind his team’s offense, leading them in almost every offensive statistic, and he’s determined to get them into the playoffs despite the odds against them.
Moreover, the upcoming game against the Golden State Warriors presents an excellent opportunity for SGA to continue his impressive run. The Warriors have struggled to defend against opposing guards, ranking 27th in defensive efficiency against them, which could spell trouble for them against a dynamic player like SGA. He has already scored at least 49 DK points in two of their three meetings this season, making him an attractive option for DFS lineups.
While this slate is a bit tricky due to the varying motivations of the teams involved, SGA’s recent form and favorable matchup make him a viable option for those looking for a high-floor, high-ceiling play. In the past two games, both losses for the Thunder, he played 38 minutes and put up 39 points on 22 shots each game.
Of course, there are other ways to save in your DFS lineup, but with the way SGA has been playing lately, he’s certainly worth considering as a top play for Tuesday’s slate.
Another player to consider for Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate is Brandon Ingram of the New Orleans Pelicans. Ingram has been carrying his team in their late push for a playoff spot, over the past 10 games while scoring at least 41 DraftKings (DK) points in each of them. His usage rate has been exceptional, hovering around 35 percent with Zion Williamson off the floor, and he’s been doing more playmaking than ever before in his career.
The matchup against the Sacramento Kings is also very promising for Ingram, as they are ranked 28th in points allowed, setting up for a potentially big game for the Pelicans’ star player. Ingram has been remarkably consistent over the past four weeks, scoring no less than 22 real points or 43 fantasy points since March 14, and I expect another heavy workload for him as the Pelicans continue to push for a playoff berth.
Ingram is undoubtedly the alpha for the Pelicans, and his recent form shows it. He has put up at least 40 DKFP in all of the past 10 games, with a high of 65.75 DKFP, while maintaining a usage rate of at least 30% in nine of those contests. He has also recorded four games with over 50 DKFP and two over 60 DKFP during that stretch.
Overall, Ingram’s recent consistency, heavy workload, and favorable matchup make him an attractive option for DFS lineups on Tuesday.
Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers is another player worth considering for Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate. The Lakers have been making a late-season push, and Davis has been a crucial factor in their success. He has been consistently generating over 57 DraftKings (DK) points in nine of his last 16 games, while averaging an impressive 54-point output during that span. Moreover, he has been receiving more touches on the ball since LeBron James returned, attempting at least 20 shots in four of his last five games.
Davis faces the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, a team that has struggled against opposing big men and ranks 25th in defensive efficiency against them. This presents an opportunity for Davis to continue his recent hot streak, especially since the Jazz will be without the breakout big man, Walker Kessler.
While Davis does come with a high price tag, stacking him and LeBron James in cash games could be a viable option if you can find enough cheap salary. Overall, Davis is a top play for Tuesday’s slate, and with the way he has been playing lately and the favorable matchup against the Jazz, he could potentially have a huge game for DFS lineups.
Mikal Bridges is a solid pick for Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate, with his recent form making him an attractive option for DFS lineups. Over the past six games, Bridges has put up at least 40 DraftKings (DK) points in all games, including two over 50 DKFP, while playing 35 to 40 minutes per night with a usage rate over 30%.
In a slate with many potential blowouts and uncertain playing time scenarios, Bridges offers a solid floor and access to his ceiling, making him a safe and reliable pick. Moreover, the game environment against the Minnesota Timberwolves should be favorable, with the spread being only 1.5 points.
Bridges has been the driving force behind the Brooklyn Nets offense, and he should continue to excel offensively against the Timberwolves, who have struggled to defend against opposing shooting guards, giving up the league’s third-most turnovers per game and the sixth-highest field-goal percentage to them.
Overall, Bridges’ recent form, solid floor, and favorable matchup make him an attractive option for Tuesday’s NBA DFS slate.
