Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Tuesday, 4/6, NBA DFS action.
FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA
Kawhi Leonard Fantasy
Target Kawhi Leonard, SF, Los Angeles Clippers (9,500): Kawhi Leonard has been dependable as always for the Los Angeles Clippers, scoring fewer than 23 points just once in his last seven games and upping FanDuel fantasy points average to 47.9 during that stretch. Leonard has improved upon his season averages in rebounds (7.7) and assists (5.3) in that timespan as well. That's great news for his fantasy outlook on Tuesday headng into a matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers, who are surrendering the fifth-most PPG (114.8) and 10th-most RPG (53.9). Leonard should stuff the stat sheet tonight.
Jrue Holiday Fantasy
Target Jrue Holiday, PG, Milwaukee Bucks ($8,800): Jrue Holiday has finally found his groove on his new team. He's averaging 53.1 fantasy points over his last four contests while doing it all for the Milwaukee Bucks. He's put up a whopping 26.8 PPG and 8.5 APG in that time, blowing his season averages (17.0/5.4) out of the water, and providing great rebounding contributions (5.8 RPG) as well. Holiday is in prime position for anothe ridiculous statline against the Golden State Warriors, who have struggled to stop opponents from scoring (eighth-most PPG allowed) and grabbing baords (second-most RPG allowed) this season.
Bogdan Bogdanovic Fantasy
Target Bogdan Bogdanovic, SF, Atlanta Hawks ($7,200): Bogdan Bogdanovic had his own hot streak before an off-game Sunday. Prior to that contest, he was averaging 48.7 fantasy points over his lats three games, finally finding his scoring (25.3 PPG) and shooting (55.8% from the field, 58.3% from deep) groove. One of Bogdanovic's best performances during that stretch was against the New Orleans Pelicans, whom he faces again tonight. The playmaking forward registered 26 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists against the Pelicans, showcasing his potential impact for Atlanta. New Orleans gives up the fourth-most PPG and second-best true shooting percentage (117.0%) in the league, so expect Bogdanovic to regain his recent form tonight.
Stephen Curry Fantasy
Avoid Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors ($9,500): This Golden State Warriors team isn't good, and that makes them a blowout risk every night against better competition. The Bucks are the league's highest-scoring team at 119.2 PPG, meanwhile Golden State's defense ranks in the bottom 10 for scoring defense. That's a recipe for disaster for anyone considering Stephen Curry tonight. It'd be no surprise to see Curry get pulled early if things go south quickly.
Zach LaVine Fantasy
Avoid Zach LaVine, SG, Chicago Bulls ($7,200): The arrival of another top offensive option in Nikola Vucevic has done the opposite of wonders for Zach LaVine. He's averaging just 26.3 fantasy points in the four games he's played with Vooch so far, way down from his season average of 40.3. LaVine's PPG (19.5), RPG (3.8) and APG (3.3) have fallen off in that span. Until LaVine's role becomes more clear following the Vucevic trade, it's best to avoid him as he works out the kinks with his new teammate.
