NBA DFS: Giannis Antetokounmpo and best FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball picks for May 11, 2022


Dillon Brooks has had a series to forget versus the Warriors in the second round of the 2022 NBA playoffs. He shot 23 percent from the field in Game 1, was ejected in Game 2, suspended in Game 3 and shot just 26 percent in Game 4. Many may question why coach Taylor Jenkins isn’t turning elsewhere but with Ja Morant (knee) out on Wednesday, the Grizzlies will need Brooks’ high-volume shooting. Can he turn things around and help Memphis extend its series or should you flat out ignore him when filling out your NBA DFS lineups?

Brooks did have a 21-point game versus Golden State in the regular season, and he has another three games of 23-plus points this postseason. He’s a streaky shooter which also makes him a boom-or-bust NBA DFS pick. But with Memphis giving him and players like De’Anthony Melton and Tyus Jones every opportunity to go off on Wednesday, which Grizzlies should you pluck from tonight’s NBA DFS player pool? Before you make your NBA DFS picks for Wednesday, 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 Tuesday, McClure listed Mavericks guard Luka Doncic as one of his top NBA DFS picks on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Doncic posted 28 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and two assists, returning 51.25 points on DraftKings and 49.2 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 Wednesday, May 11, 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 Wednesday, May 11

For Wednesday, one of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks is Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is listed at $11,600 on DraftKings and $11,500 on FanDuel. Even in a loss, the two-time MVP had another banner game with 34 points, 18 rebounds and five assists. Across seven regular and postseason games versus the Celtics, Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.4 points, 11.9 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.

Antetokounmpo is dominating the statistical leaderboards like no other this postseason as he leads all players in both points (271) and rebounds (119), while ranking third in blocks (12) and fourth in assists (63). His NBA DFS price tags are still cheaper than what they were at his peak during the regular season, which makes him an absolute steal and no-brainer for Wednesday’s NBA DFS lineups.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Warriors guard Klay Thompson ($7,400 on DraftKings, $6,200 on FanDuel). Thompson hasn’t had his best shooting series versus Memphis but he’s picked up his production in other areas. He’s still averaging 15.5 PPG and has increased his other stats across the board this series with 4.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks per night.

Memphis had the No. 4 defense during the regular season in defensive rating but opposing shooting guards gave it some trouble. Of the eight remaining playoff teams, the Grizzlies allowed the second-most Fantasy points to SGs on both DraftKings and on FanDuel. Thompson is coming off 14 points in Game 4, but the last time he scored fewer than 15 in a playoff game, he then bounced back with 21 points, seven boards and four assists in the following game.
