Daily Fantasy Basketball Playbook – 11/11

DeMarcus Cousins

Welcome back to the NBA DFS playbook. I’m not going to ramble today; I just want to say a huge thank you to all of those who are serving in the military or served. Everyone around you has a better life because of what you did. Thank you.

Now on to the picks!

Point Guard

Cory Joseph ($3,300) – No Terrence Ross or DeMarre Carroll means even more minutes for Joseph tonight on a back-to-back for the Raptors. Not to mention he gets the Sixers tonight. I’m using him everywhere tonight. 

Reggie Jackson ($7,300) – Jackson’s price tag hasn’t quite caught up to his production yet which is good news for us. Jackson has hit around 5x value five out of the last seven games. The Kings are a team that are crumbling already under the George Karl experiment and the Pistons are playing better without Brandon Jennings running the show.


Shooting Guard

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($5,000) – I must admit that KCP was someone I never wanted in my lineup. He’s like Al-Farouq Aminu: tons of athletic ability and plays good defense but not an offensive minded player. Well KCP has proven me wrong and I’m glad to admit it. He’s had over 20 fantasy points in six out of his last seven games and the Kings have nobody to guard him tonight. 

Evan Turner ($4,600) – Turner played really well off the bench for the Celtics when Avery Bradley went down with an injury last night and Marcus Smart being sidelined with a toe injury. Since it’s a back-to-back night of games, his price tag wont go up and he makes for a great cash game play.


Small Forward

Paul George ($8,800) – I keep recommending George, but until he get’s over $9,000 I will continue to do so. Last game wasn’t his best, but he still had solid production. I know that the Pacers are running a smaller lineup, but that allows for George to get better matchups and fill the stat sheet. With the Celtics being banged up tonight, I think he’s the best play in cash games tonight at the position.

Joe Johnson ($4,800) – For as bad as the Nets have been, Johnson has been stepping up to try and help fantasy teams. He gets to go against a Rockets team that is one of the worst in the league at defending the position. I love Johnson for GPP’s tonight and is very much in play for cash games as well.


Power Forward

Paul Millsap ($7,900) – It doesn’t look like Anthony Davis is going to play tonight, so Millsap will have a much easier night at home. Ryan Anderson has looked good this season, but he doesn’t have the defensive ability to slow down Millsap. He’s more expensive than I would like, but he’s almost a lock for 20/10 tonight.

 LaMarcus Aldridge ($6,900) – A revenge game is something I am always interested in getting exposure to, even more so when it’s against the frontcourt that would have a hard time slowing down a high school team.



DeMarcus Cousins ($9,800) – Everyone is going to be on Andre Drummond tonight, and that is why I’m leaning Cousins. He’s going to be a man on a mission tonight when he steps on to the court with everything going on with George Karl. If there every was a night to invest in an angry Boogie, tonight is the night.

Meyers Leonard ($4,200) – Leonard isn’t a sexy pick tonight, but he’ll continue to outplay his value. He’s hit over 20 fantasy points in three straight games and he’ll continue to do so with the minutes he’s getting.
