Daily Fantasy Basketball Playbook – 11/6

Tonight’s NBA DFS playbook is going to be a fun one. Ten games are on the books tonight, and Vegas has all of them with over 195 points. That means plenty of offense and plenty of fantasy considerations for out lineups. Dwight Howard is out tonight, and be sure to keep an eye out for last minute scratches.

*note: all my prices are according to DraftKings

Point Guard

TJ McConnell ($4,000) – McConnel has played very well in the absence of Kendall Marhsall and Tony Wroten. He’s still going ot get big minutes tonight, and that’s why I’m having him in almost all my lineups.

Jerryd Bayless ($3,500) – This all depends on in Michael Carter-Williams plays. If he doesn’t plug Bayless into your lineups and don’t look back. With such a low salary, it won’t take much for him to hit value.


Shooting Guard

James Harden ($10,000) – I am all over Harden tonight in every kind of game. I know the Rockets look like a bubble team for the NCAA tournament. Like I said, no Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, or Patrick Beverly means Harden run the offense his way. He may shoot the ball 40 times tonight and I would blink an eye. I’m fading Stephen Curry and playing Harden tonight.

Evan Fournier ($5,200) – That Evan Fournier is so hot right now. His price tag is catching up to his play, but not quite there yet, so enjoy it while you can. He’s averaging over 30 fantasy points over his last three games


Small Forward

Paul George ($8,100)/LeBron James ($9,900) – I can’t really decide who to play between these two guys, so I’m using them both if I can. With so much value elsewhere, it’s not that hard to squeeze either one in your lineup. I like LeBron more because he’s always capable of 60+ fantasy points, but George isn’t a bad option at a cheaper price.


Power Forward

Anthony Davis ($10,700) – I firmly believe this is the night that Davis breaks out of his slump so far this season. Davis typically plays the Hawks well, and they will need Davis at his best if they want to get their first win of the season. Buy now while his ownership is low. He’ll make your bankroll a lot richer.

Thaddeus Young ($5,600) – Three straight games of averaging over 30 fantasy points? Sign me up please. Oh, and he’s playing the Lakers? I’ll sign that in blood.  



Kosta Koufos ($4,700) – It’s not a sexy pick, but it’s a smart one. Koufous is hitting around 5x is his current salary and he gets another game with DeMarcus Cousins out. Also, he gets to face a Rockets team with Dwight Howard and Terrance Jones. Everything lines up for him to be a great GPP and cash game play.

Andre Drummond ($8,900) – I know this is a huge jump in price tag for Dummond, but SVG doesn’t care about his bench and will let Drummond play every minute if he wants to tonight. He’s been the best center in the league fantasy wise, and I expect that to continue tonight.
