Take note that we are looking at the main playoff slate starting at 1:00 ET.
Kyle Lowry – Toronto (at Orlando)
Damian Lillard has been fantastic in the postseason, and I’m certainly not excluding him from my lineups. However, Lowry has been sneaky-good himself, and he checks in with a sizable discount from the top players of this position. Lowry is averaging 40 FPPG over his last two games in this series, and I’m expecting more of the same in a competitive game atmosphere at Orlando. The Magic rank 20th in defensive efficiency to the point guard position.
Shooting guard is a place to find savings, as I have listed three serviceable bargains at the position. Even though Iguodala only sees around 25 minutes per game, he may be the best of the group while averaging 29 FPPG over three games in this series. Playing up in pace against the Clippers really suits Iggy’s playing style, so he should keep hovering around his value threshold of 25 or so fantasy points.
Kevin Durant – Golden State (at LA Clippers)
The Warriors wanted Kevin Durant to be more aggressive in Game 3. He did exactly that, posting 38 points, four rebounds, and seven assists en route to 54 fantasy points in a blowout win. The Clippers simply don’t have an answer for him, and I’m expecting KD to keep the pedal down in Game 4. It’s hard to choose between Durant, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard, but the Warriors small forward gets my vote with the best matchup and upside combination.
Jerami Grant – Oklahoma City (vs Portland)
Grant is a mid-range filler who has been serviceable with 28 fantasy points in two of three games in this series. He should keep seeing adequate playing time in one of the best fantasy environments of the day. Grant hasn’t had a game where he puts everything together, so there’s upside if the scoring, rebounds, and peripheral numbers all come at the same time.
Al Horford – Boston (at Indiana)
I’m not crazy about Horford, but he has been one of the more consistent centers of those in the player pool today. The matchup isn’t great, but Horford could flirt with upside of 15 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and a block or two. That would put him around the 35 fantasy point mark, which is a noteworthy return on his mid-range salary. You could take a chance on Steven Adams or Andrew Bogut in tournaments, but Horford is my cash game preference.
