NBA DFS: Dillon Brooks and best FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for April 26, 2022

The 2022 NBA playoffs series between the Grizzlies and Timberwolves has been a bit of a homecoming for Memphis guard Tyus Jones. Not only did he play his first four seasons with the Wolves, but he is a Minnesota native. In this series, Jones hasn’t hesitated to show his former team what it’s missing and he’s provided solid NBA DFS production. His 10.3 points per game match that of Jaren Jackson Jr. while he’s also putting up 4.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals per contest.

Jones is returning about 60 percent of the production of Ja Morant, yet at less than half the price it costs to roster Morant on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. Finding low-cost, high-upside players like Jones is the key to crafting a winning NBA DFS strategy while also staying below your NBA DFS salary cap. Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Tuesday’s playoff games, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He’s also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account.

This allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.

On Monday, McClure listed Mavericks guard Luka Doncic as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Doncic helped put Dallas up 3-2 in its series with 33 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, returning 59.25 points on DraftKings and 54.1 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Tuesday, April 26, NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, April 26

For Tuesday, one of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks is Grizzlies G/F Dillon Brooks ($5,800 on DraftKings and $5,200 on FanDuel). Brooks had his second game with 24 points in this series when he dropped that many on Saturday, going 3-for-4 beyond the arc and adding two boards, a steal and a block.

Brooks’ other game with 24 points came in Game 1, and while he had off scoring nights in the two games in between, he did contribute in other areas. In Games 2 and 3, he combined for 20 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals. Brooks and Desmond Bane occupy the starting wing spots for Memphis, and Minnesota has had trouble with the two-guard spot all year. The Wolves have allowed the third-most Fantasy points to opposing SGs on both DraftKings and FanDuel, so Brooks is in a great position going forward.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley ($5,600 on DraftKings and $6,200 on FanDuel). Beverley scored 17 points in Game 4 which was his most points in a playoff game in five years. He also added five assists, two blocks and two boards, while knocking down 4 of 6 shots from beyond the arc.

While Beverley isn’t known for his scoring, he is known for his defense and he hasn’t disappointed in piling up stats on that end of the court. Across eight regular and postseason games versus Memphis this year, the three-time All-Defensive selection is averaging 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. With averages of 11.8 points and 5.0 assists in this series, Beverley’s all-around production gives him lots of value for NBA DFS lineups.
