Daily Fantasy Basketball Playbook – 11/14

Tonight is going to be a fun night in NBA daily fantasy basketball.   It is definitely going to be a high scoring affair, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some DFS players have rosters in the 300 point region. With 10 games scheduled tonight, five of them have over a 200 point line, and all but one game has an over/under of at least 192 points.

Like usual, I will be giving a couple of players at each position that I like for tonight’s festivities. All of my salaries are based off of DraftKings. Good luck tonight and lets win some money!

Point Guard

Isaiah Canaan ($4,200) – With no Beverly, he will get a ton of minutes. With the possibility of a blowout, he should still get a high volume of minutes.

Shabazz Napier ($3,000) – No Dwayne Wade tonight means that Napier should get an increase in minutes. I think Coach Spolstra throws him out there to see what he can do tonight against Atlanta. I think he’s strictly a GPP play, but I like the upside.

Tony Parker ($6,700) - The rule of thumb in daily fantasy basketball is to always go against the Lakers. They have been a goldmine as far as daily is concerned. Having Parker come off of a couple days rest, he should torch the Lakers tonight and have a solid fantasy night.

Zach LaVine ($4,100) – Not a very sexy pick, but Turner will be out, and he has been getting a lot of minutes the past week or so. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Wolves let him go and see what he can do against the Pels tonight.

Shooting Guard

James Harden ($10,300) – I know he will be used in most lineups tonight, but Harden could single-handedly outscore the Sixers team – I honestly don’t think that would surprise anyone. Last time these two teams met, Harden dropped 35/9/5. I expect a similar number tonight for Harden who’s floor is about as high as you could ever want in DFS.

Eric Gordon ($4,100) – It kills me to admit this, but Eric Gordon is a viable option tonight in DFS GPP’s. I know he has been terrible, but tonight would be a great night to get his shooting back on track. The Timberwolves frontcourt has been shaky at best, and Gordon should get a ton of opportunity to exploit that.

Anthony Morrow ($4,000) – Morrow has been taken off of his minute’s restriction. The Thunder are desperate for outside shooting, and I think this bodes very well for his DFS value.

Small Forward

Andrew Wiggins ($4,500) – With Thad Young out, Wiggins should be able to get more of the offensive load against the Pelicans tonight. He’s scored in the double-digits and played over 30 minutes in the last three out of four games. I think he’s a great GPP play tonight.

LeBron James ($10,700) – He’s a very expensive price, but has done nothing but show this is his team over the past few games. He doesn’t like the Celtics, and will be out to throw power in their faces.

C.J. Miles ($3,000) – It’s still iffy if he plays tonight, but I think he’s worth a shot at the bare minimum price.

Power Forward

Cody Zeller ($3,900) – I think Zeller can be an absolute steal of a player tonight, but it all depends on if Marvin Williams plays or not. Things aren’t looking good for Williams to be on the court this evening, and Zeller has a great matchup against a Suns team.

Anthony Davis ($11,200) – It’s hard to not roster the Brow on any night he plays. His numbers have been insane, and I see no reason why they should drop off. He can drop 60+ fantasy points on any given night.

Kevin Love ($8,900) – He’s the only other player I would take if you wanted to fade AD. I really like his matchup and think that he can easily be the highest scoring player on the Cavs tonight. The price is almost too good to pass up.

Center

Nikola Vucevic ($8,100) – The safest play at the center position tonight. Nobody on the Bucks should be able to stop him tonight.

Roy Hibbert ($7,300) – It looks like the Hibbert of early last season is back. He has been great the past few nights in DFS, and the Nuggets are a juicy matchup.

Kelly Olynyk ($5,800) – He’s the only middle of the road guy I like starting tonight. He has been solid so far this season and I see no reason why he cant stretch the Cavs and put up solid numbers.
