Daily Fantasy Basketball Playbook – 11/25

Jrue Holiday

Tonight is a perfect example of why I love daily fantasy basketball. There may only be five games on the books tonight, but four of them have a 200 point over/under. So while there may not be the craziness of multiple games, the ones we do have will be a shootout. So lets enjoy this Tuesday before Thanksgiving and get some last minute cash in out bankrolls before turkey day. As always, all of my prices are based off of DraftKings.

Point Guards

Jrue Holliday ($7,500) – I know people will be fading Holliday because of his last performance against the Kings, but the matchup is really too good to pass up. Darren Collison is banged up and is questionable to play. Even if he does play, I expect Holliday to take full advangtage of him.

D.J. Augustin ($3,900) – No Brandon Jennings tonight means for a great play tonight for Augustin. If you remember, he won a lot of people a lot of money last season with his play for the Bulls. I wouldn’t play him in a GPP, but I think he’s a must start in cash games.

Shooting Guards

Bradley Beal ($6,000) – I love Beal tonight, especially for that price. He looks healthy, and appears to not have any problems getting back in full swing since coming back from injury. Atlanta doesn’t have anyone who can guard Beal, so expect a solid night from that could easily be the best play of the night.

Klay Thompson ($7,100) – Beal still is my guy tonight at the position, but Thompson is not far behind him. He’s coming off of a game where he was a hair short of 40 fantasy points. No Dwayne Wade tonight makes this matchup even better. I only give the slight edge to Beal over Thompson because o0f pricing. 

Shooting Forwards

Omri Casspi ($3,500) – No Rudy Gay tonight means Casspi will get more minutes. Every game that he’s gotten 17+ minutes, he’s produced at least 17 fantasy points per game. The value is almost too good to pass here, and I am definitely starting him in my GPPS.

Paul Pierce ($5,500) – There’s not much at the SF position to choose from tonight. Pierce has been on a roll lately, and should continue that against a Hawks team that’s in the bottom third of defending that position in the league.

Power Forwards

Anthony Davis ($11,500) – The best play on the planet in fantasy, and not far behind in reality. The Brow is at home coming off another huge game. If you’re going to pay up for a player, it should be AD.

Draymond Green ($6,100) – I’m trying to be different tonight with so many big men’s status up in the air. Green has been hot since David Lee went down. He doesn’t cost as much as other bigs tonight, and has a favorable matchup against the Heat. I think he’s a solid GPP play.

Centers

Andre Drummond ($7,100) – I think Drummond gets the biggest boost tonight from Jennings being out tonight. They should feed him the ball down low more against a soft Milwaukee frontcourt. He’s the cheapest of the big name centers, and he could be the highest producing big man tonight

Timofey Mozgov ($5,600) – Mozgoz have been really coming on lately for the Nuggets. It most certainly helps that most of the big men for the Bulls are banged up, and all of their status’s are up in the air. Mozgov is about as cheap as I’ll go tonight at the position, and he should return solid value in cash games tonight.
