Point Guard

George Hill - Philadelphia 76ers (vs. Atlanta Hawks

George Hill has been cleared to play and is sitting at ridiculously low salaries around the industry. As I’ve mentioned in past articles, the best way to approach these smaller NBA daily fantasy slates is by investing in as many superstars as possible. By investing in George Hill, you will be able to fit Trae Young and Luka Doncic. These are my two top superstars to pay up for. Embiid is a close third assuming he is available to play today.

Other PG Option: Reggie Jackson & Tyrese Maxey

Shooting Guard

Seth Curry - Philadelphia 76ers (vs. Atlanta Hawks

Danny Green and Seth Curry are going to be extremely important in the series. Bogdanovic should be able to maintain Ben Simmons leaving Trae Young and Hunter (or Heurter) to match up with Green and Curry. Joel Embiid’s status is still uncertain. If he is able to play, I will label him as a top play. His matchup against Capela is favorable and Simmons will need to be a pass-first guard against Atlanta today (and throughout the series). Make sure to monitor Atlanta’s and Philadelphia’s confirmed lineup.

Other SG Option: Tim Hardaway

Small Forward

Danny Green - Philadelphia 76ers (vs. Atlanta Hawks)

Along with Seth Curry, Danny Green will also see a favorable matchup as Bogdanovic is expected to defend Ben Simmons. Danny Green has looked solid throughout the playoffs so far averaging 23.3 DK points per game in their first series. Once again, Philadelphia’s confirmed lineup will be crucial information for constructing daily fantasy lineups today. I believe Embiid will play today, but regardless of if he does or does not, Green and Curry should perform at valuable salaries around the industry for this two-game slate.

Other SF Options: Dorian Finney-Smith

Power Forward

Tobias Harris - Philadelphia 76ers (vs. Atlanta Hawks)

If Embiid is not able to go, Tobias Harris will see massive upticks on the offensive side of the court. Without the confirmed lineup, much of this is speculation. The individual matchups will depend on the status of Joel Embiid and DeAndre Hunter. Harris should be one of the most popular plays today considering his high usage and reasonable salaries.

Other PF Option: John Collins

Center

Boban Marjanovic - Dallas Mavericks (vs. Los Angeles Clippers)

I fully expect Luka Doncic to be ready to go tonight for Game 7. The addition of Boban to the starting lineup has significantly changed this series. Boban is a solid correlation play to pair with Doncic. Dallas’ role players have not performed particularly well in this series with the exception of Dorian Finney-Smith. Kristaps Porzingis has disappointed throughout the series but maybe this is the game he is able to get on track. Invest in Boban and Doncic as your top two plays on the Dallas Mavericks tonight. The more I look into this smaller DFS slate today, game stacking seems to be the way to go. Most people try to balance their lineup between the two games but if one of these games becomes a blowout that strategy will not work. Smaller DFS slates are unique in that it’s important to come up with a strategy that makes you different from the hundreds of thousands investing in the same two games that you are.

Other C Option: Joel Embiid
