DraftKings and FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/11/23): NBA DFS Lineups

Isaiah Stewart - NBA DFS Picks, Daily Fantasy Basketball Rankings, Injury News - rotoballer icon

We have an eight-game slate on tap Wednesday night that features a number of intriguing and potentially highly competitive matchups, including Pelicans-Celtics, Pacers-Knicks, and Suns-Nuggets clashes.

There's also more good news in the fact that all seven games that are on the board as of early Wednesday have projected totals of 229 points or more, which portends plenty of potentially favorable DFS environments we can focus on and stack in various ways in tournaments.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 1/11/23. Remember to monitor the NBA injury report as the slate can completely change before lineups lock, which is at 7:00 pm ET tonight. Good luck, RotoBallers.

DraftKings and FanDuel Guards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks  

Tyrese Haliburton - PG/SG, IND at NYK ($9,200 DK, $9,500 FD)

Haliburton has proven capable of offering a ceiling befitting a five-figure-salary player, and Wednesday, he'll face a Knicks team allowing the sixth-highest offensive efficiency rating to point guards (28.8). New York is also surrendering the second-most DK (55.6) and fourth-most FD (52.5) points per game to the position in the last seven games.

Haliburton is shooting an impressive 47.3 percent, including 39.4 percent from three-point range, on the road, while averaging over 45 fantasy points in that split as well. Given he's eclipsed 49 fantasy points in four of his last six games alone, Haliburton could prove to be quite the fantasy-point-per-dollar value Wednesday at his salaries.

D'Angelo Russell - PG/SG, MIN at DET ($7,400 DK, $7,000 FD)

Russell has actually been a more productive, efficient player on the road, where he's shooting 48.9 percent, including 36.3 percent from behind the arc. He's also averaged 34.1 DK/32.3 FD points per game in that split, and he put up 32.5 DK/30.5 FD points across 34 minutes against the Pistons in the first meeting between the teams this season. He's also demonstrated some nice upside as of late by eclipsing 40 DK points in five of the last 12 games and 40 FD points on three occasions in that span.

The Pistons also check in allowing an Eastern Conference-high offensive efficiency rating to point guards (30.0), along with the third-most DK (54.1) and sixth-most FD (51.2) points per game to the position in the last 15 contests. Then, Detroit is coming off having allowed 147 points to the 76ers on Tuesday night, and the Pistons went into that contest allowing the third-highest three-point shooting percentage at home (38.1), furthering Russell's case.

Jalen Green - SG/PG, HOU at SAC ($7,200 DK, $7,000 FD)

Green is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game on either site over the last 15 games despite some inefficiency, and he's facing a Kings team he should be able to enjoy some success against Wednesday. Sacramento is allowing the third-highest offensive efficiency rating to two guards (25.4) while also surrendering 48.0 percent shooting, including 37.7 percent shooting from three-point range to the position.

Sacramento is also surrendering over 40 fantasy points per game to two guards over the last 30 games. Meanwhile, Green has delivered over a 5x return on his current DK salary on 15 occasions and at least a 5x return in the same amount of games on FD. With Sacramento also allowing the sixth-highest three-point shooting percentage of any team on its home floor (37.1), Green is firmly in play as a solid mid-range play Wednesday.

ALSO CONSIDER: Ja Morant - PG/SG, MEM vs. SAN ($10,300 DK, $10,100 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks   

Jayson Tatum - SF/PF, BOS vs. NOP ($10,800 DK, $10,600 FD)  

Tatum delivered handsomely as a Monday suggestion against a Bulls team highly vulnerable to power forwards, and he's in a similarly favorable position Wednesday versus a short-handed Pelicans frontcourt. New Orleans has been much more vulnerable to fours during Zion Williamson's (hamstring) current absence, a vulnerability Tatum is naturally amply capable of exploiting after just racking up 56 DK/54.1 FD points against Chicago.

The Pelicans are surrendering over 44 fantasy points per game to power forwards in the last seven contests, along with 43.8 percent three-point shooting in the last three games, a significant boost over their seasonal figure. New Orleans is also conceding an elevated 51.1 rebounds per road game, and Tatum checks in averaging a well-rounded and robust 33.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.1 steals -- along with over 50 fantasy points on either site -- over the last 12 games.

Julius Randle - PF, NYK vs. IND ($10,500 DK, $10,200 FD)     

While I usually try to recommend only one high-end play per position, I like Randle's upside in his matchup too much to substitute any mid-range play for him. The big man also comes in blistering hot, as he's put up 30.9 points, 13.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.0 steals across his last 10 games, a sample during which he's shot 46.1 percent, including 36.3 percent from three-point range. Randle has also scored over 50 DK points in all 10 games and on nine occasions on FD during that span.

He put up 48 DK/43.3 FD points in his one previous game versus Indiana this season as well, and the Pacers check in allowing the seventh-highest offensive efficiency rating to power forwards (28.5), along with the fourth-most DK (49.8) and fifth-most (48.3) points per game to the position over the last 15 games. Indiana is also yielding the third-most rebounds per contest on the road (55.3), furthering Randle's case.

Jaden McDaniels - SF/PF, MIN at DET ($4,800 DK, $5,900 FD) 

McDaniels has scored over 30 DK points in each of his last two games and 29.3/31.3 FD points in those contests as well, and he checks into Wednesday's favorable matchup averaging just under 30 fantasy points per game on either site in his last 12.

The third-year big is putting up a well-rounded 13.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.0 blocks per contest over that span while shooting a blistering 54.0 percent, including 41.5 percent from behind the arc. McDaniels is facing a Pistons team whose aforementioned weakness on perimeter defense is something he could very well exploit, and the fact Detroit is also surrendering over 40 DK points to small forwards doesn't hurt his case either.

ALSO CONSIDER: Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL at ATL ($11,800 DK, $11,600 FD)


DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks  

Nikola Vucevic -  C, CHI at WAS ($8,100 DK, $8,400 FD)     

Vucevic comes into Wednesday's clash against the Wizards running hot, averaging 40 fantasy points per game on either site over the last 13 contests while producing 18.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.2 blocks per contest and shooting 55.7 percent, including 42.6 percent from behind the arc. Vucevic has also been outstanding against Washington in two prior meetings this season, averaging 24.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 1.0 steals per contest while averaging 44.9 DK/43.9 FD points in that sample.

The Wizards are also more vulnerable down low with Daniel Gafford manning the five rather than Kristaps Porzingis. Washington is allowing a whopping 64.3 DK/64.6 FD points to the position in the last seven games, the third-highest figure in that span. The Wizards are also yielding 52.3 rebounds per contest in the last three games, upping Vucevic's chances of hitting the double-double bonus on DK and turning in another strong return overall at his reasonable salaries.

Brook Lopez- C, MIL at ATL  ($5,500 DK, $6,500 FD)

Lopez faces a Hawks team on Wednesday that's still slated to be without Clint Capela (calf) down low and that's already allowing the second-most DK (65.6) and FD (65.2) per game to centers in the last seven contests, which encompasses the entirety of the big man's absence thus far. Lopez has shot 51.7 percent, including 42.1 percent from behind the arc, in his first three games against Atlanta this season, and he has a performance of 36.5 DK/36.2 FD points in one game versus the Hawks in that sample.

The Hawks are allowing a robust 54.4 rebounds per home game on the season, and 56.0 per contest over the last three games. Atlanta is also conceding the fourth-most blocks per home game (5.6), certainly a relevant stat when considering Lopez, who's averaging a career-high 2.6 rejections per game and has posted three tallies of at least four in the last seven contests alone.

Mitchell Robinson - C, NYK vs. IND ($5,400 DK, $6,200 FD)

Robinson is another very reasonably-salaried big who's in a good position Wednesday night, facing a Pacers team that's allowed the ninth-highest offensive efficiency rating to centers (33.0). Indiana is also giving up the fifth-most DK (56.6) and sixth-most FD (55.4) points per game to the position on the season, along with the third-most rebounds (55.3) and ninth-most blocks (4.9) per road contest.

Robinson is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game on either site over the last eight games, a stretch during which he's averaging 7.8 points, 11.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.4 blocks per contest. Robinson has also been at his best at home -- he's shooting a sizzling 81.0 percent while averaging over 25 fantasy points per game there, and he put up 38.8 DK/41.1 FD points in his one prior game versus the Pacers.

ALSO CONSIDER: Jaren Jackson Jr. - PF/C, MEM vs. SAS ($7,300 DK; $8,000 FD)
