DraftKings and FanDuel Playoff Slam Dunks, Thursday 4/19

Josh Engleman



These Slam Dunk picks come directly from the lineups of the #1 player in DFS, Awesemo. Follow him on Twitter for more.

Rudy Gay
DK: $5100 | Fpts: B | Value: A
FD: $5900 | Fpts: B | Value: A

Rudy Gay is expected to see a full set of minutes in what should be a pace up game for the Spurs. The Spurs are in a tough spot, playing without coach Gregg Popovitch after the passing of his wife Erin yesterday. It will be a unique game, for sure, but Rudy Gay is in an excellent spot outside of the current circumstances.

Hassan Whiteside
DK: $5400 | Fpts: B | Value: A
FD: $5500 | Fpts: B | Value: A

With the news that Joel Embiid is probable, the outlook for Whiteside has changed dramatically. In their four regular season games versus the Sixers, Whiteside played 18, 28, 33 and 28 minutes. He should see in an increase in run now that Embiid is back on the floor. Whiteside went from a problem to a bargain with this news.

Draymond Green
DK: $7500 | Fpts: B | Value: B
FD: $7300 | Fpts: B | Value: A

This play is more about FanDuel than DraftKings, as Draymond is at his second lowest price of the season. On short slates, with value hard to find, you’ll need to squeeze it from every spot you can. Tonight on FanDuel, that value is Draymond.
