Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/11/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

With a juicy 11-game NBA slate, WHO NEEDS COLLEGE FOOTBALL? Saturdays are for the ballers and there will be no shortage of that with 22 teams set to play. There are plenty of teams coming off of back-to-backs, but Vegas is still predicting most of the games to be high scoring so the options are out there, we just have to make sure you roster the right ones.

There are plenty of superstars playing on Saturday so do not be afraid to roster the likes of, James Harden (yes, even at that price), DeMarcus Cousins, Nikola Jokic, Bradley Beal, Klay Thompson, or Paul Millsap. All are lined up for monster games and the only thing that will hold them back is themselves. Those players are safe picks unless they cannot find their shooting rhythm. Most times scoring will come from defense or other aspects of the game, but regardless it will only put a cap on their overall production.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/11/17. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays on DraftKings. Find me in the #HOOPS CHAT ROOM or on Twitter, @HalfCourtJester.

DFS Guards to Consider

Jeff Teague - PG, MIN @ PHO (DK - $6,800, FD - $7,100)

As far as fantasy basketball players are concerned, the Timberwolves have been a minefield. With the amount of superstars they have, you would think someone other than Anthony Towns would be an every night threat. Jimmy Butler is due, *cough* PLAY JIMMY BUTLER *cough*, and you can do the same with Jeff Teague. The Suns are on the second night off a back-to-back after losing to the Magic, and Alex Len is going to be the one with paint protection duties. Nothing against Len because he is a great play for tonight as well, but he won't be able to keep out the likes of Teague, Butler, and Towns. The Suns backcourt will have struggled against point guards and Teague arguably has the easiest matchup in Mike James or Tyler Ulis.

Justin Holiday - SG/SF, CHI @ SA (DK - $5,400, FD - $5,800)

Justin Holiday is just one of those players that is built for production. His length means he's going to get rebounds and he is starting to hit with decent efficiency. Although he might be going up against a stingy Spurs defense, they still don't have a defensive stud that can match the length of Holiday. Hoping that most players are scared by the inconsistency and opponent, Holiday is going to be a perfect play on a crowded day. Holiday will continue to be one of the focal points of the Bulls offense until Lavine returns. Bobby Portis might crowd up the spacing a bit with his mid-range offense, but Holiday being forced to extend his range against the Spurs should be fantasy gold. Holiday has hit at least two threes every game this season and he get's hot, he becomes a steal for his price.


DFS Forwards to Consider

Blake Griffin - PF/C, LAC @ NO (DK - $8,600, FD - $8,500)

Against the Steven Adams-less Thunder defense, Blake Griffin struggled. Simply put, he wasn't hitting his shot and he will be able to rebound against the Pelicans. While Anthony Davis might be a menacing player to target, Griffin has a serious strength advantage that will allow him an ideal amount of space for him to work in the post. Even if his shot isn't hitting, it allows Griffin to remain the facilitator on offense and that works for us DFS players. Griffin's price is still too low not to take a gamble on. His floor is as close to a guaranteed 30 FPTS as you can get, and he knows he needs he needs to be on against another interconference team.

Kevin Love - PF/C, CLE @ DAL (DK - $7,300, FD - $7,300)

On paper, the Mavericks might not be the best matchup. They play hard defense and always manage to compete with teams energy, which hurts players chances to get hustle stats, but their composure and lack of offense usually knocks them out quick. Harrison Barnes is going to carry the Mavericks, most likely causing LeBron James to get himself deeply invested in the offensive side of the game early. The Mavericks started Dirk Nowitzki at center last game and even if they switch early to Salah Mejri or Dwight Powell, they will not be able to keep LeBron out of the paint and contest Love's jumpers. Love is a great deal for the explosions he is more than capable of.


DFS Centers to Consider

Alex Len - C, MIN @ PHO (DK - $4,900, FD - $4,400)

Even though I am betting against Alex Len by advising Towns earlier, the Timberwolves struggle to rebound and Len proved to be effective on the hustle stats. He had plenty of second chance opportunities and until his price reaches $5,500, he is going to be a value play, with a little double double (10 points, 10 rebounds) as his floor. Not too bad for a sub $5,000 option that is gauranteed a starters workload, especially if Marqueese Chriss can't stay out of foul trouble. The door is also open for Dragan Bender but he is much more "three-dependent" and is much more of a gamble. Due to his minutes depending on his in-game performance on that particular night, you are playing with fire if you play the Dragan...
