The Starting 5 | Wednesday, April 13 FanDuel NBA DFS Expert Lineup Picks

FanDuel Expert NBA DFS Cash Game Lineup Picks for Wednesday, April 13, 2016.

Free daily fantasy basketball lineup advice, picks and plays (4/13) 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.

Thank you everyone for reading the Starting Five this season. If you already haven’t make sure you check out our great baseball content to help you win your baseball DFS contests.

PG – Stephen Curry

I want players that I know are going to be playing and with the Warriors chasing history that will be Curry. There will be plenty of value that opens up through the day and fitting Curry in your lineups should be no trouble at all. Get the MVP of the league in your lineups tonight.

SG – James Harden

Harden is another one of those players that I am getting into my lineups tonight. I am not worried about salary as there will be plenty of punt plays tonight. The Rockets need to win to get in and Harden may not leave the floor tonight. The Kings are also the best match-up in the NBA for shooting guards and Harden is going to go crazy.

SF – Robert Covington

Covington is the perfect mid-tier player to pair with the studs I mentioned above. He is playing a lot for the 76ers and playing well with eight of his past ten games with over 30 fantasy points. The Bulls do not defend well and the Chicago native should have a great game.
