DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 11/30/15


I apologize in advance to the Sacramento Kings. I'll be picking on them more than any other team in this lineup, but maybe I'm just following suit of every other offense they've faced this season. Now I sound like a high school student, afraid to stick up for those who are constantly ridiculed. But this isn't high school. It's Daily Fantasy Basketball. And it's our job to search for and exploit weaknesses.

We have a nice mix of older stars who continue to keep father time on the bench of their lives, and younger emerging stars looking to produce in favorable and competitive matchups.

Check out my Daily NBA picks for DraftKings, 11/30/15.

DraftKings DFS Point Guards

Goran Dragic (vs BOS, $5,000 )

Dragic's minutes have remained steadily around 30 minutes a game all season and he starts on a great Miami Heat team. He's shown the ability to score in double digits and can sprinkle stats across the board. There isn't another real threat at his position on the Heat, so he shouldn't lose any playing time to backup point guard Beno Udrih. He's a cheap option that can exceed projection.

Deron Williams (at SAC, $6,100 )

The Sacramento Kings surrender 24.3 assists per game, the second most in the league; an appealing stat for someone who has averaged 8.4 assists a night in his career. Williams appeared to have lost a step his past two years with the Brooklyn Nets, mainly due to injuries resulting in a significant amount of time missed. This season, however, Williams has played and started in all 16 of Dallas' games. He is coming off a 22 point performance against the Denver Nuggets, his second highest showing of the season, and will look to produce efficiently against Sacramento's extremely subpar defense.

 

DraftKings DFS Shooting Guards

Wesley Matthews (at SAC, $4,400 )

Here come more demerits for the Kings. Sacramento allows the most three point attempts in the league, 27.5 per game, and are also the shameful owners of the highest opponent field goal percentage of .478%. This matchup should make any shooting guard pump their fists, do a little dance, and get ready to shoot. Matthews is averaging 12.4 field goal attempts and 8.4 attempts from downtown over his last five games. Facing the Kings will be a perfect opportunity for Matthews to find his stroke and revisit his double digit scoring ways.

Rodney Hood (vs GS, $5,000 )

If Utah wants to be the team to hand the Golden State Warriors their first loss of the season, the Jazz will need production from every position, especially the one built for scoring and scoring quickly. Utah has been one of the best defensive teams thus far, relinquishing the third fewest points per game, but will simply need to fight fire with fire when playing the 18-0 Warriors. Points, points, points. Put the ball in the basket more times than they do. Hood will likely see around or more of his 30.6 minutes a night and will need to contribute in a close or catchup game with the defending champs. Hood has been battling back spasms recently, but is set to play. If he misses action, it'll be wise to consider his backup, Alec Burks.

 

DraftKings DFS Small Forwards

Kawhi Leonard (at CHI, $8,600 )

The Chicago Bulls allow the most field goal attempts, 91.4 a night. They also let up the most defensive rebounds with 37.1 per game, and the second most offensive rebounds, an average of 12.7. Now, gladly hold the door open for Kawhi Leonard and watch him step onto the court. Leonard recently lost minutes in San Antonio's last game; an unlikely blowout versus the Atlanta Hawks. But despite the stats listed above, it should be a tight game against the Bulls that'll likely keep Leonard on the floor for well over 30 minutes. Leonard is already putting his name in the MVP candidate hat and should be considered in every contest.

Marcus Morris (vs HOU, $5,700)

The Detroit Pistons average the most offensive rebounds in a game, and hand over the fewest. This should result in plenty of fantasy point opportunities for Morris, especially facing a poor defensive Houston Rockets team. Morris is still relatively inexpensive for all he's capable of doing for a daily lineup. He has scored in double digits in all but four games this season.

 

DraftKings DFS Power Forwards

Dirk Nowitzki (at SAC, $6,400 )

The Kings give up 109.1 points per game, the highest average of any team in the league. But, yes I'm about to say something remotely positive about Sacramento, they also score a lot of points too; 104.9 per game, the fourth highest in the NBA. This could very well secure Nowitzki staying in the game for a significant amount of minutes. Even if he isn't scoring a lot, Nowitzki still grabs a lot of boards and gets his looks from behind the arc.

Blake Griffin (vs POR, $9,100 )

Griffin is the best power forward on today's card. His price has dipped a bit, which surprisingly makes him even more appealing. Granted it should be the opposite, based on a slight decline in his performance, but Blake Griffin is still Blake Griffin. He is a triple-double threat every time he touches the court and is the ultimate sprinkler of stats. Griffin is the kind of guy that could break out for 50-60 plus fantasy points, putting your team in great position to cash out. The Los Angeles Clippers could be in a competitive game against the Portland Trailblazers; both teams with exceptional talent, off to unexceptional starts.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Jared Sullinger (at MIA, $6,400)

I like Sullinger based on the potential competitiveness between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. A showcase of two good teams in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics the surprise of the two, will likely feature battles between Sullinger and either Chris Bosh or Hassan Whiteside. Sullinger's stock continues to climb, as it should. He's averaging 11.2 rebounds over his last five games and has shown the ability to assist, steal, and block as well. Whiteside and Andre Drummond are clear favorites at the center position but Sullinger is cheaper and can break out for over 40 fantasy points; tremendous value for his price.
