POINT GUARD

Ja Morant – Memphis (at Utah) - DK: $8,600 / FD: $8,200 / Yahoo: $33

I have a feeling it’s going to be the last chance to roster Morant this season, but that doesn’t mean he won’t continue to give it all (and I hope we get at least one more game from this series!). If his three-point shot decides to fall, look out. So far, he’s gone 5-for-22 in this series from beyond the arc, attempting seven in each of the last three games. Even so, he’s averaged almost 50 fantasy points per game in this series. I’m going with a more middle-range build tonight, aiming for a high floor with upside from every position.

Also Consider: Russell Westbrook, Trae Young, Jalen Brunson

SHOOTING GUARD

Donovan Mitchell – Utah (vs. Memphis) - DK: $8,200 / FD: $8,300 / Yahoo: $38

Mitchell has gotten better with each consecutive game he’s played in this round, and I look for him to continue that trend tonight. Utah is favored by 9.5 points and as noted above, I think they’ll close the series out here. Though Mitchell’s FG percentage hasn’t been awesome the last couple games, he has gotten to the free throw line 24 times, making 21 of his attempts. Another 30-ish real points is well within his range, and he has the potential for another 50-plus fantasy point game.

Also Consider: Dillon Brooks, Kevin Huerter, Tyrese Maxey

SMALL FORWARD/GUARD

Bogdan Bogdanovic – Atlanta (at New York) - DK: $6,700 / FD: $6,600 / Yahoo: $28

Bogdanovic may not have the upside of other players in this article, but he certainly has the floor. Shooting guard eligible on DraftKings and Yahoo, but filling a difficult slot on FanDuel, Bogdanovic should find his way into all lineups tonight. The Hawks are just one win away from Round 2 and I think we’re looking at a close battle tonight in New York. This game carries the lowest point total of the slate, but I think carefully choosing a key player like Bogdanovic from it provides some nice stability for the price. He’s been doing a little bit of everything on the floor, averaging about 34 fantasy points per game while playing about 35 MPG.

Also Consider: Kawhi Leonard

POWER FORWARD

Tobias Harris – Philadelphia (vs. Washington) - DK: $7,800 / FD: $8,200 / Yahoo: $32

Joel Embiid is doubtful to play tonight, which may spark some interest in Dwight Howard, but don’t overlook Harris, who will certainly be more active in the frontcourt as a result of Embiid missing tonight’s game. Harris has been a strong play regardless, posting over 45 fantasy points in three of the first four games of this series, including consecutive double-doubles in the last two games. The biggest concern is a blowout, and it’s not a huge concern without Embiid. The spread has narrowed from minus-7 to minus-6 in the last day. This game carries the highest point total of the slate, and Washington’s fast pace gives a boost to all the 76ers.

Also Consider: Rui Hachimura, Daniel Gafford, Jaren Jackson Jr.

CENTER

Jonas Valanciunas – Memphis (at Utah) - DK: $7,700 / FD: $6,700 / Yahoo: $31

Centers have been a bit disappointing in this round, including the ones playing tonight. With significantly overlapping ranges, Valanciunas is the best value of the star centers tonight. In addition, Memphis needs him to be his best if they want to extend this series. He is the key to tonight’s game, and although he has been fine, double-doubling in three of the four games so far, his offensive output has been pretty low compared to his typical regular season game. As with others above, Valanciunas won’t hurt you with his floor, and has as much upside as anyone at this position for a lesser salary.

Also Consider: Clint Capela, Rudy Gobert, Dwight Howard

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Rui Hachimura (F – WAS) played over 40 minutes in Game 4, and came through with 20 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, a block and a steal. In the first three games, he averaged closer to 30 MPG, and 20 fantasy points per game. Since the Wizards walked away with their first win, it’s tempting to speculate that Hachimura could be in for another big workload. At just $4700 (DK), $5200 (FD) and $19 (Yahoo), it won’t cost too much to find out. Daniel Gafford, also cheap, had one of his best games in Game 4 as well, with a notable five blocks! Both make for solid fillers at the F or Utility slot tonight.

Jalen Brunson (G – DAL) is not here because I fear Luka Doncic won’t play. He almost certainly will and has a probable designation. Brunson is the ultra-cheap SG/G option you can use to round out cash game lineups tonight. He’s been super consistent with between 16-18 fantasy points in this series. It’s not terrific output, and I’d shoot for someone with more upside in tournaments (like Tyrese Maxey or Grayson Allen) but Brunson’s 4-5X ROI should be enough for cash games.
