Top Picks for NBA DFS on Tuesday, April 6 (2021)

| April 6, 2021 8:20 am PDT

The NBA continues to be unpredictable. Utah lost to Dallas, the Cavs routed the Spurs, Phoenix got a fight from Houston, and the Nets struggled to take out the Knicks.

That is also what makes daily fantasy basketball so fun, and it isn’t always as predictable as some would like to think.

Going into Tuesday, things appear to be wide open for anyone trying to build NBA DFS lineups. Let’s see what you might want to do as I break down my favorite NBA DFS picks, sleepers, and top lineup for April 6th.

Top NBA DFS Picks for April 6th

Stephen Curry
  • Stephen Curry, PG, Warriors ($9.7k)
  • Caris LeVert, SG, Pacers ($7.2k)
  • Gary Trent Jr., SF, Raptors ($6.2k)
  • Draymond Green, PF, Warriors ($6.7k)
  • Nikola Vucevic, C, Bulls ($8.7k)

I’m not here to say you need to fade the monsters on this slate. The Greek Freak, Nikola Jokic, and Joel Embiid are all on the table.

However, I love Curry as a slightly discounted stud. He just needs to pick up his peripherals. He’s scored 36 and 37 real points in his last two games, and a fast-paced shootout with the Bucks should give way to a big outing.

I also have eyes for LeVert, who had a huge outing with 26 points and nine dimes in his last game.

That was largely thanks to the absence of Malcolm Brogdon, who happens to be iffy for Tuesday. If he’s out, LeVert is a smash play against a weak Bulls defense.

Toronto continues to be banged up. Kyle Lowry will not play on Tuesday, and it’s possible Fred VanVleet remains out. If so, the minutes and scoring role looks airtight for Trent.

Nikola Vucevic

Green is in a groove at the moment. He has 44+ fantasy points in each of his last two games, and like teammate Stephen Curry, should be involved in a wild game with Milwaukee.

I can see paying up with one of the three stud centers, but the discount on Vuc feels insane. He was once priced up to $10k at DraftKings, but he’s just $8.7k on this slate.

Vucevic displayed his upside with 50 fantasy points in his last outing, but you know he’s capable of even more than that. He also fared well in his previous showdown with a poor rebounding Indiana squad, when he accrued 48 fantasy points.

Daily Fantasy Basketball Sleepers for Tuesday

  • Malachi Flynn, PG, Raptors ($3.9k)
  • Grayson Allen, SG, Grizzlies ($4.4k)
  • Naji Marshall, SF, Pelicans ($3.8k)
  • James Johnson, PF, Pelicans ($5.2k)
  • Ivica Zubac, C, Clippers ($5.4k)

There is no getting away from Flynn, who is looking at big minutes if FVV remains out. He did not start the last game but was still an elite value play as he racked up a sick 16-6-4-4-2 stat line.

Flynn would be a must against a Lakers team that has struggled without their top two stars.

Another guy that stands out is Grayson Allen. The matchup with the Heat is awful, but he’s getting good run, can explode as a scorer, and he’s cheap.

Your main source of value could continue to stem from New Orleans, though. The big guys to monitor are Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. If out, James Johnson would likely be a core play.

James Johnson

He’s logged 28+ minutes in each of his last three outings, translating the expanded role into 28, 35, and 43 fantasy point nights.

His price tag has ticked up, but a role like that is tough to deny.

Marshall would be appealing (albeit to a lesser extent), and basically any Pels getting quality run would be in play.

Lastly, I really like Zubac. He’s seeing around 30 minutes as a starter most nights, and he’s still locked into a big role with Serge Ibaka sidelined.

Zubac has exhibited a troubling floor lately, but I’d be happy to allow recency bias to get other people off of him. He’ll get to match up with Enes Kanter, which bodes well for his fantasy production.

Best NBA DFS Lineup for April 6th, 2021

  • PG: Malachi Flynn – Raptors ($3.9k)
  • SG: Caris LeVert – Pacers ($7.2k)
  • SF: Gary Trent Jr. – Raptors ($6.2k)
  • PF: Naji Marshall – Pelicans ($3.8k)
  • C: Ivica Zubac – Clippers ($5.4k)
  • G: Stephen Curry – Warriors ($9.7k)
  • F: Markieff Morris – Lakers ($5k)
  • UTIL: Nikola Vucevic – Bulls ($8.7k)

This is a tentative lineup, as always, but as long as the Pelicans guys and FVV are out, this is a great place to start.

Everything would change if they’re in but working off of Trent or LeVert (if FVV or Brogdon play) would be a bit easier, and not so earth-shattering.

My studs here are Curry and Vuc, although I’d have understandable interest in Damian Lillard as a pivot off of Curry, and I’d also be intrigued by pairing Curry with Giannis.

It all depends on news, and projected ownership.

I love this squad as things stand, of course. Hopefully my NBA DFS picks and sleepers serve you well, and if you have any other questions, complete your research by checking out the odds at the top NBA betting sites.
