DraftKings and FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/30/22): NBA DFS Lineups

We're set for the biggest slate of the week Wednesday, as there are a massive 13 games on tap. As is usually the case with a player pool of this size, there are an abundance of options even with some big-name absences, and there are some star players in particularly appealing positional matchups that we can exploit.

There are some very good options in favorable matchups across each price point on the salary cap at each position, setting up what should be a fun night of lineup construction for both cash games and tournaments.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 11/30/22. 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

Trae Young - PG, ATL at ORL ($9,700 DK; $9,800 FD)    

Young enters Wednesday's highly favorable matchup already running hot, as he's averaged 46.3 DK/42.8 FD points in his last five games, and he also scored 60.3 DK/58.6 FD points in the game before the start of that sample. Young also scored 50 DK/43.3 FD points across 37 minutes in his one prior meeting with the Magic earlier this season, and Orlando continues to be one of the most favorable matchups in the league for point guards, putting Young firmly in play as a nice pivot off some five-figure options Wednesday.

The Magic have allowed the fourth-highest offensive efficiency rating to point guards (29.7), along with a 48.1 percent success rate from the field to the position. Orlando is also allowing over 51 fantasy points per game to ones, along with bottom-five or bottom-10 figures in points (26.4), assists (9.6) and made threes (3.2) to point guards, giving Young multiple paths to fantasy success.

Devin Vassell - SG, SAS at OKC ($7,700 DK; $7,000 FD)

Vassell is one of the several Spurs players enjoying a breakout season, as the third-year guard is putting up career bests in points (20.4), assists (3.6), field-goal percentage (46.0), and three-point shooting percentage (41.9). Vassell has been at his best on the road as well, shooting a sizzling 48.4 percent, including 50.0 percent from distance. Vassell has been over 35 fantasy points in eight games overall on DK and in six contests on FD, and he now draws one of the best matchups in the league for shooting guards in the Thunder, which is surrendering the second-highest offensive efficiency rating to two-guards (25.6), along with over 43 DK and over 42 FD points per game to the position.

OKC is also yielding an elevated 37.7 percent success rate from three-point range overall, and the matchup is actually even better for Vassell when drilling down into some primary defender stats. Vassell could see plenty of Josh Giddey in front of him Wednesday, and it's worth noting the second-year wing has allowed 43.8 percent shooting on left corner threes, a shot Vassell has a stellar 50.0 percent success rate with. Moreover, Vassell's 47.4 percent shooting in 10-to-14-foot range dovetails nicely as well with the 53.1 percent shooting Giddey allows in that range.

Malcolm Brogdon - PG/SG, BOS vs. MIA ($5,300 DK; $5,700 FD)

Brogdon is one of the more enticing value guards on Wednesday's mammoth slate, especially if Jaylen Brown (neck) sits out another game for Boston. The veteran scored 36.3 DK/33 FD points on Monday night with Brown and Al Horford (back) sitting out against the Hornets. However, Brogdon has been producing consistently off the bench for the Celtics for an extended stretch, averaging just under 30 fantasy points per game on either site in the four games prior as well.

Brogdon is also displaying career-high efficiency from beyond the arc, shooting a blistering 46.6 percent in that split as part of his best overall shooting percentage (48.8) since the 2018-19 campaign. Meanwhile, the Heat has allowed 47.5 percent shooting to second-unit players, including 35.9 percent from behind the arc. Miami is also conceding over 40 DK points per game to shooting guards, and Brogdon has a 28.1 percent usage rate along with averages of 43.2 DK/40.6 FD points per 36 minutes without Brown available this season.

ALSO CONSIDER: Jamal Murray - PG, DEN vs. HOU ($7,200 DK; $7,100 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Giannis Antetokounmpo - PF/C, MIL at NYK ($12,400 DK, $12,000 FD)

Antetokounmpo is always in play irrespective of salary, especially in a matchup as good as he'll face Wednesday. The Greek Freak already put up 66 DK/64.3 FD points against the Knicks in one meeting this season, and he's continued to display his upside over the first month-plus of the season with seven tallies of greater than 60 DK points and five such efforts on FD. Antetokounmpo is also taking a career-high 21.3 shot attempts per contest, and that level of usage could naturally lead to another massive haul Wednesday.

The Knicks are surrendering the sixth-highest offensive efficiency rating to power forwards, along with 45 fantasy points per game to the position. New York is also yielding the second-most rebounds (56.0) and ranks in the bottom 10 of points in the paint allowed per home game (52.0), along with an elevated 54.7 per contest in the last three overall. All of those numbers naturally bode well for Antetokounmpo's production, considering how much of it stems from those channels.

Anthony Edwards - SG/SF, MIN vs. MEM ($8,000 DK; $8,000 FD)

Edwards should be one of the primary beneficiaries of the absence of Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) over the next few weeks beginning with Wednesday's game, which already offers a favorable positional matchup. Edwards checks in already running hot, as he's averaged a robust 25.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.7 steals while averaging 19 shot attempts over his last seven games. He also sports a 32.0 percent usage rate without Towns on the floor this season, while also averaging 45.3 DK/42.6 FD points per 36 minutes in that split as well. The Grizzlies are also yielding the 12th-highest offensive efficiency rating to shooting guards (23.4), along with with the fourth-most DK (45.2) and FD (44.1) points per game to twos.

Then, Memphis is also surrendering the second-highest three-point shooting percentage on the road (41.2%), while Edwards is always willing to fire away from deep and has taken double-digit three-point shot attempts in four of the last seven games alone. It's also worth noting Memphis' John Konchar, who could defend Edwards frequently Wednesday, is surrendering 52.2 percent and 38.1 percent shooting from the 15-19 feet and 20-24 feet ranges, respectively, boosting Edwards' overall upside.

Kevin Huerter - SG/SF, SAC vs. IND ($5,500 DK; $6,100 FD)

Much like Brogdon, Huerter is another intriguing value play Wednesday, and he has both guard and forward eligibility, making him even more appealing. The sharpshooter is shooting a career-high 48.8 percent, including 45.6 percent from behind the arc, leading to a career-best 16.1 points per game. Huerter has been especially good at home, averaging 30.5 DK/29.0 FD points per game at Golden 1 Center while shooting 55.0 percent, including 51.5 percent from three-point range.

He's in a matchup that should suit him especially well Wednesday, as Indiana plays at a fast pace and also is one of the most susceptible teams to long-distance shooting in the league. The Pacers are ranked in the bottom 10 in the league with 36.5 percent three-point shooting allowed, and Indy has surrendered over 44 DK and over 42 FD points per game to twos. Indiana is also giving up the fourth-highest offensive efficiency rating to two-guards (25.0) and has surrendered 38.8 percent three-point shooting to the position specifically, upping Huerter's ceiling in this matchup.

ALSO CONSIDER: Jerami Grant - PF, POR at LAL ($7,100 DK; $8,200 FD)


DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Nikola Jokic - DEN vs. HOU ($11,700 DK; $11,200 FD)

Jokic lines up for a premium matchup Wednesday against a Rockets team he just put 59.5 DK/55.4 FD points against on Monday night. The Joker has been over 50 fantasy points on either site in four straight overall, and he'll once again take the floor without Michael Porter Jr. (heel). Jokic boasts a 27.8 percent usage rate and averages 60.4 DK/59.2 FD points per 36 minutes without his teammate this season, giving him even more appeal than he otherwise would already carry.

The Rockets are now allowing over 52 fantasy points per game to centers on either site after Jokic's big game on Monday, and Houston is also giving up an NBA-high 3.0 blocks per game to fives. While rejections aren't a big part of Jokic's profile, he does have multiple stuffs in two games this season and could certainly take advantage of that vulnerability, especially if he's already logging some extra usage with Porter out of action.

Jusuf Nurkic - POR at LAL ($6,900 DK; $6,800 FD)

Nurkic's salaries are nowhere near commensurate to his recent production, nor do they really seem to factor in his ongoing scenario of playing without Damian Lillard (calf). The big man has scored over 40 fantasy points on DK in each of the last three games and twice in that span on FD, and he sports a 24.9 percent usage rate while averaging 43.5 DK/41.8 FD points per 36 minutes without his teammate on the floor thus far this season. Nurkic is even spacing the floor at a career-best rate this season, shooting 43.3 percent from behind the arc on just under two three-point attempts per contest. He's also been more aggressive offensively without Lillard, putting up between 12 and 15 shot attempts per game over the last five.

The Lakers have allowed over 58 fantasy points per game on either site to centers, along with the eighth-highest offensive efficiency rating to the position (33.6). Los Angeles is also surrendering the third-most rebounds (55.3), fifth-most blocks (5.5) and ninth-most points in the paint (50.5) per game, including 56 per contest in the last three. All of those numbers dovetail nicely with Nurkic's fantasy profile, particularly the latter, considering just under 65% of the big man's points come from the painted area of the floor.

Ivica Zubac - LAC at UTA ($6,400 DK; $6,900 FD) 

Zubac offered a dramatic reminder of his upside in Sunday's massive 31-point, 29-rebound double-double against the Pacers, a game in which he generated 76.8 DK/74.3 FD points. While that's naturally an outlier performance, Zubac followed it up with 34.8 DK/34.6 FD points against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, and he's already put up over 40 DK points on six occasions and more than that amount on FD in four games. What's more, the big man is expected to once again take the floor without Paul George (hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (ankle) on Wednesday, which naturally gives him an even better opportunity to continue outperforming his current salaries.

No team has been more generous to centers than the Jazz, which have allowed over 60 fantasy points per game to centers, along with the fourth-highest offensive efficiency rating to the position (34.8). Utah also ranks just outside the bottom 10 of the league in total rebounds allowed per game overall (52.7), including the third most per contest to centers specifically (16.8). The Jazz is also allowing the fifth-most blocks per contest to centers (2.4), while Zubac has multiple rejections in nine of 22 games. Finally, the Jazz is surrendering the most points in the paint per home game (59.8), an area of the floor where just over 78% of Zubac's scoring occurs.

ALSO CONSIDER: Domantas Sabonis, SAC vs. IND ($9,200 DK; $8,800 FD); Rudy Gobert, MIN vs. MEM ($6,800 DK; $7,500 FD)
