NBA Playoff Primer: Wednesday, May 16th

Our analysts will break down the playoff slate by position, taking a deep dive into game flows to pick out the best players for your daily fantasy sports lineups. Gain an edge in your postseason DFS play here.

Wednesday, May 16th

Tonight, we’ll see the Rockets host Golden State in the hopes of turning things around after a Game 1 loss to the defending champions – the Rockets are modest favorites in a game that should be high scoring. I’m going to again focus purely on numbers to help you build your lineups on FanDuel and DraftKings. I’ve included minutes history/projections and fantasy point projections for both FanDuel and DraftKings. It’s a pretty thorough look that should help you get the edge on those just throwing lineups together haphazardly. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
