Joseph’s NBA Playoff May 16th DFS Lineup Thought Process

We’re taking on water here.

Rolling with a value pick at captain slot again in Looney.

Hoping Hood has at least 20 fantasy points and CJ has a bounce-back game.

12 to 5. As I said when this series was 7-5, the cream will rise to the top. While we are certainly rising, we have no where near peaked.

As I mention in the video, I took a value-based approach to my lineup tonight, and was arguably too stubborn with that approach.

Klay is on fire, Curry is the best player in the series, if Portland wins it will because of Dame, admittedly this is all low hanging fruit…

My Showdown lineup is 100% a cash lineup, I’ll own that. That being said, have you seen some of the scores Joe has put up during my win streak? A cash lineup will do just fine.

While this article is about our Showdown lineups, I highly recommend watching the video and checking out our picks for the two night slate. I love my lineup for that format, and feel really good about it cashing tomorrow night.

Aside from the primary group (Curry, Leonard, Lillard, Green, Thompson, Giannis…) guys I’m bullish on in these series: Marc Gasol, Mo Harkless, Khris Middleton, Paskal Siakam and Ersan Ilyasova. I expect that group to be a solid value moving forward through the Conference Finals series.

Hello Rookie NBA Playoff Dueling Lineups Summary

Here’s where we sit concerning concerning current NBA Playoffs in terms of daily fantasy.

Brook Lopez is back in a big way.

Malcolm Bogdon is also back although George Hill’s value seems unchanged.

Bledsoe’s fantasy value has dropped slightly due to Brogdon’s return although he’s still seeing plenty of playing time. If priced right, he could be used as a reach in the near future.

Pat Connaughton will need to score a few points before be relied upon as a reach pick.

Kawhi and Siakam are quite the dynamic duo. Giannis is unstoppable.

Kanter is still dominating. Both Harkless and Hood (no signs of lingering injury) are going to be looking at a range of between 20 and 30 points. Zach Collins remains a solid stretch option – hopefully his salary isn’t overly inflated throughout the series.

The splash brothers along with Draymond have brought the band back together again.

Looney remains the best deep stretch pick in the GS v POR series.
