NBA Draftkings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineups – 4/24/2024

NBA Draftkings Lineup
April 24, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

There are only two NBA games taking place on Wednesday but there is still enough value to NBA DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups. Let’s take a look at some players that you should be considering when you are building your lineup.

Point Guard

CJ McCollum ($7500)

New Orleans Pelicans point CJ McCollum is going to have a huge game here. Without Zion Williamson, others need to step up, and McCollum is one of the guys that will do that. In the first game of this series he had 20 points, six assists, and three rebounds. McCollum is going to score even more here, and he is a great value at $7500. His salary should really be closer to $9,000 here. 

Payton Pritchard ($4700)

With only two games on the slate it’s even more important to hit on the lower salary players, and there are ton of risky plays that are cheaper on Wednesday. Boston Celtics guard Payton Pritchard has been hit or miss but he is going to play enough minutes here to at least give you a shot at a high fantasy score, especially in a GPP. In the first game against the Miami Heat, Pritchard played 24 minutes and finished with 21.5 fantasy points. 

Shooting Guard 

Duncan Robinson ($3500)

As stated above, it’s going to be crucial to hit on the cheap options for Tuesday, and one player that should be in some of your GPP lineups. Duncan Robinson is only $3500 and although there is a chance he only finishes with 10 points, but he also could get hot from deep and splash a ton of three-pointers. I think this is one of the games which Robinson gets hot, and he will smash value. 

Small Forward

Jaime Jaquez Jr ($5800)

Jamie Jaquez Jr started in place of Jimmy Butler in Game 1 for the Heat, and I would expect much of the same here. In the first game he finished with 16 points, four rebounds, and four assists. Two games ago, Jaquez Jr finished with 37.5 fantasy points and ht’s going to get closer to that number here. Jaquez is going to have a big game and he’s going to be well over his value at $5800. 

Power Forward 

Naji Marshall ($3800)

Pelicans forward Naji Marshall is going to have a solid game, and although it might not be a sexy play, it feels like a pretty safe play. Marshall in the last game against the Oklahoma City Thunder played 16 minutes and finished with five points, four rebounds, and four assists. Marshall is going to have another solid balanced game here, and will finish right around that 20 point mark again. 


Chet Holmgren ($6800)

Chet Holmgren’s salary is only $6800 and he’s a steal at that price. In the first game of this series, Holmgren played 32 minutes and finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, five blocks, and two assists. He had 44.75 fantasy points, and he’s going to have another big game here. Holmgren is going to be a mismatch again here, and he will finish over value here.
