Bargain-hunting will be extra hard in the playoffs but there are some really solid bargain options in a two-game playoff Monday. Let’s consider five Best Bargain Options For NBA Playoffs DFS– April 15, 2019:
1.) Boban Marjanovic, C, Philadelphia 76ers
Joel Embiid played a little less than 25 minutes in Game 1 and still was pretty dominant. However, if his playing time is any indication, he is not 100% and is considered questionable going into Game 2.
Whatever the case, this will open up minutes for Boban Marjanovic, who contributed 13 points, three rebounds, four assists, plus a steal and a block in just 15 minutes. If Embiid ain’t good to go, we have a really golden bargain in our hands.
2.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG, Los Angeles Clippers
SGA was really good in Game 1, scoring 18 points while adding five rebounds and three blocks. I’m sure Golden State will allow SGA to score rather than Lou Williams so there’s a good chance he will keep the offensive production while having tons of defensive upside.
3.) Andre Iguodala, SG, Golden State Warriors
It’s playoff time and it’s where Iggy is at his best.
The 2015 Finals MVP delivered in Game 1, tallying eight points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals, and two blocks. There are so many ways Iggy can hurt you and he just showed why. Besides the stats, it’s also encouraging to see him lay 26 minutes, his highest since March 15.
4.) Jarrett Allen, C, Brooklyn Nets
Allen played only nine minutes in Game while Ed Davis played 25 and had a double-double. However, Davis appeared to hobble and suffer from a little sprain, as coach Kenny Atkinson puts it. If Davis won’t be able to go, Allen is not a bad option here, although Davis is also a solid bargain option himself.
5.) Patrick Beverley, PG, Los Angeles Clippers
Pat Bev scored only three points in Game 1 but added seven rebounds and seven assists. He played 31 minutes because of his defense but if he could just hit his shots, he is probably the most important player for the Clippers out there.
