Luka Doncic is once again putting together an NBA MVP caliber season so far in 2020-21, averaging 28.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game. Doncic has also been one of the most popular NBA DFS picks this season, recording over 47 points on DraftKings in five of his last six outings. Doncic and the Mavericks will battle DeMar DeRozan and the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, a team he torched for 22 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists on March 10.
At $11,000 on DraftKings and $10,200 on FanDuel, rostering Doncic on Sunday will mean needing to find more affordable talent to fill out your NBA DFS strategy. Getting your NBA DFS lineups right is worth thousands on Sunday in daily Fantasy basketball tournaments, 50-50s and cash games, so seeking lineup advice will be critical. Before locking in any NBA DFS lineups for Sunday's action, be sure to see the NBA DFS advice, player rankings and top daily Fantasy basketball lineups from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

On Saturday, McClure included Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell in his core lineup picks. The result: Mitchell exploded for 42 points, three rebounds, four assists, a block and a steal to produce over 57 points on FanDuel and DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Sunday, April 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 Sunday, April 11
One of McClure's top NBA DFS picks for his Sunday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Pelicans forward Zion Williamson at $9,400 on DraftKings and $9,700 on FanDuel. Williamson is delivering 26.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game in his second season. That includes a 37-point, 15-rebound, eight-assist night on Friday against the Sixers.
Williamson has pumped in at least 30 points in 14 games already this season, becoming the Pelicans' most reliable scoring asset. The former Duke superstar has scored at least 25 points in 10 of his last 11 appearances. Williamson and the Pelicans get the struggling Cavaliers on Sunday, a team he dropped 23 points and six rebounds against earlier this season.
Part of McClure's optimal NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering rostering Bucks center Bobby Portis at $6,300 on DraftKings and $5,800 on FanDuel. The Milwaukee big man is averaging 11.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this season. That includes a 10-point, 13-rebound, two-block output on Friday against Charlotte.
Portis has been a rebounding machine in recent games, pulling down 40 boards in his last three outings and upping his double-double total to eight this season. And with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Brook Lopez (back) ailing, Milwaukee will need Portis more than ever on Sunday against the Magic. Portis went off for 20 points and five rebounds against Orlando earlier this season, and McClure loves his potential again on Sunday.
