The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – May 4, 2022 (5/4/22)

Please note that players on DraftKings and FanDuel have multi-position eligibility and may not always match their position with each other. In this article, we will be breaking down some of our favorite plays on the slate at their positions. Remember to always keep your eye on the news as the day progresses, as NBA news changes the slate frequently.

Key Injuries

  • Joel Embiid (Out)
  • Gabe Vincent (Questionable)
  • Max Strus (Questionable)
  • P.J. Tucker (Questionable)
  • Tyler Herro (Questionable)
  • Kyle Lowry (Out)

Favorite Plays

Jae Crowder

Crowder has played well in these playoffs with at least 19 fantasy points in all but the opening game of the Pelicans series. I especially like what we saw from him in game one of this series in which he played 28 minutes while producing a well-rounded stat line of 11/8/3 with a block on his way to 27.5 fantasy points.

DeAndre Jordan

This has more to do with the lack of great center options than it does with the way Jordan played in game one. In that game, Jordan got the start for Joel Embiid but only was able to produce 9.5 fantasy points in his 17 minutes of action. While ten fantasy points is not a lot of production at all I will take it at his salary as it allows me to spend up at other positions. I also don’t believe that Jordan only has ten fantasy points in this game. I believe the rust on Jordan is knocked off after not playing for a couple of weeks and we see him produce closer to 20 fantasy points in this game.
