The NBA season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.

And be sure to checkout our nightly against the spread (ATS) picks as well.

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Tuesday, 4/27, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,000): Giannis Antetokounmpo is rolling. He's averaging 59.4 FanDuel fantasy points over his last three games while putting up 27.3 points, 14.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game with 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks as well. The Charlotte Hornets aren't the kind of formidable opponent that holds back his fantasy outlook tonight, as they rank in the middle of the pack for PPG, RPG and opponent field goal percentage. The two-time MVP should have no problems keeping his production up on Tuesday.

Malcolm Brogdon Fantasy

Target Malcolm Brogdon, PG, Indiana Pacers ($8,500): Malcolm Brogdon is an attractive fantasy option for both his recent play and opponent tonight. Brogdon has shouldered the load with Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis out of the lineup, averaging 49.4 fantasy points over his last three contests by putting up 26.3 PPG, 10.3 RPG and 6.7 APG. Brogdon's ramped-up rebounding numbers have only added to his fantasy potential recently. He's in a great position for another all-around performance against the Portland Trail Blazers, who allow the sixth-most PPG (114.3) and 10th-most RPG (53.9)

Jusuf Nurkic Fantasy

Target Jusuf Nurkic, C, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,200): Staying in that same game, Jusuf Nurkic has lit it up in his past two contests. He's put up 111.2 fantasy points over his last two outings and has grabbed 36 total rebounds in that span. Nurkic's rebounding explosion should serve him well against the Pacers, who are without both Sabonis and Turner tonight. Indiana lacks any real frontcourt players who can keep up with the bruising Nurkic, which sets him up to thrive on Tuesday.

Luka Doncic Fantasy

Avoid Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks ($11,300): Luka Doncic's fantasy production continues to be a roller-coaster. He had a recent stretch of five straight 50-plus-point fantasy outings before managing 41.1 and 40.4 points in his last two games. Doncic had a golden opportunity for a huge night against the Sacramento Kings on Monday and failed to capitalize. He's also reportedly dealing with a brusied elbow, which may have impacted him last night. Regardless, his shaky fantasy output and possible injury is enought to avoid Tuesday's most-expensive player.

Damian Lillard Fantasy

Avoid Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,300): Damian Lillard is a risky fantasy option even at this salary. His numbers are down across the board in April, managing just 22.1 PPG, 6.1 APG and 3.8 RPG. He was once a nightly target candidate, but his meager 37.1 field goal percentage during the month of April illustrates his current scoring struggles. It's hard to see Lillard snapping out of his funk anytime soon.
