Free daily fantasy basketball lineup advice, picks and plays (4/11) to help you win your DFS contests.

Let’s take a closer look at some FanDuel NBA DFS action with our “Starting 5” picks for the day’s slate.

For those of you new to Moxyball or new to this column, welcome, and for those of you who have been reading with us since last year, welcome back.

In this column we give you a play to consider at each position and then our 6th man who will be the one player that I will be personally spending up for.

Ok… let’s jump in.

Note: The important thing with NBA DFS is to be nimble and ready to make roster changes as injury news breaks throughout the day – right around 10-15 minutes before lineup lock in particular. Just like we mentioned in our season primer article that talked to overarching strategies for success, you need to be able to lock in some key values as they emerge throughout the day to get that leg up on your competition. These picks below are being shared first thing in the day from guys we like on paper – but you never know how their outlook is going to change as the day rolls on and other attractive plays shine through.

PG – Tim Frazier

I am looking for players at this point in the season that I know are going to play heavy minutes and that is Frazier. With all the injuries to the Pelicans Frazier is getting a chance to prove he can play in this league and he is doing exactly that. Frazier has at least 26 fantasy points in seven straight games and should easily hit that tonight against a Bulls team that struggles to defend point guards.

SG – Devin Booker

Booker is a plug and play player for me tonight. He is the lead man for the Suns and has been consistent since Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight went down with injuries. Booker has three of his past four games with at least 28 fantasy points and should easily hit that tonight against a Kings team that allows the 2nd most fantasy points to shooting guards.

SF – Giannis Antetokounmpo

Going to stay with the Greek Freak at this spot. He is the only stud small forward with guaranteed minutes and he is making the most of them. In the month of April, Giannis is averaging 50.04 fantasy points a game. With the Magic ranking 18th against small forwards, Giannis should threaten that number once again.
