DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/18/15

Jrue Holiday has to be the most underrated fantasy player in the NBA. Even with a minutes restriction, he has been on fire recently. He'll be mentioned later, but wow has he been phenomenal.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 12/18/15. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

DraftKings DFS Point Guards

Stephen Curry (vs MIL, $10,700)

This pick is speculation, as the Warriors recently stated that they felt disrespected by the way the Bucks handled themselves after ending their undefeated streak. That means the Warriors will be trying to dominate them tonight, and the starters may see a few more minutes. Curry has displayed as much upside as anyone on the slate, and he’s matchup proof. He can be used in all leagues tonight.

Jrue Holiday (at PHO, $5,100)

Holiday only saw 24 minutes in his last game, but he still managed to score over 30 fantasy points. He has now scored 30+ fantasy points in five consecutive games. He should see around 30 minutes tonight, and he gets a great matchup against a fast paced Suns team. Phoenix has really struggled against point guards this season, as well, and Holiday is one of the best value plays on the slate tonight.


DraftKings DFS Shooting Guards

Tyreke Evans (at PHO, $7,300)

Evans struggled in his last game, but he continues to play heavy minutes, and he’s a five-category contributor each night. He’s a triple double threat every time he steps on the court, and he can also lead the team in scoring. He has tremendous upside, and he has also been fairly consistent for most of his short season. His price isn’t quite high enough yet, and he can be used in all leagues in what should be a fast paced game.

Khris Middleton (at GS, $5,300)

Middleton is extremely price for how many minutes he has been playing. Over the last 10 days, he is averaging 39.2 mintues per game, and he has turned that into 14.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.3 steals. He gets a good matchup against the Warriors, who love pushing the pace, which means Middleton should see a few extra opportunities tonight. Middleton has great upside, but he’s also fairly consistent for his price, and he can be used in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Small Forwards

Carmelo Anthony (at PHI, $8,300)

Many people have been saying Kristaps Porzingis has hit the “rookie wall,” but it likely has more to do with Melo taking over games. He has scored 50+ fantasy points in three consecutive games, and he’s contributing in all categories. His price is extremely low for the upside he possesses, and he gets a great matchup against a weak defense tonight. Melo should have no problems scoring, and he can be used in all leagues, as he continues to contribute at a high level.

Matt Barnes (at DAL, $5,300)

A lot of people might be off Barnes tonight, but that would be a mistake. He struggled with fouls in his last game, which led to him only playing 22 minutes. He has tremendous upside, as he will draw the start again tonight, and he had scored 36.5 and 42.75 fantasy points in his two previous starts. Dallas has struggled against power forwards at times this season, and Barnes’ struggles were more of an outlier than anything. He can be used in all leagues for his low price tag.


DraftKings DFS Power Forwards

Draymond Green (vs MIL, $8,800)

Green is a triple double machine, and he is coming off a great triple double against the Suns. His minutes will likely be safe tonight because the Warriors will be trying to prove a point. A few games ago, he posted a 5x5 game while scoring 71.25 fantasy points. He has as much upside as anyone on the slate for a significantly lower price tag. He also has been playing extremely consistently, and he can be used in all leagues, as the Bucks have struggled against power forwards this season.

Kenneth Faried (at UTA, $6,100)

Faried has been struggling with health issues recently, but he looked fully healthy against the Wolves and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him play heavy minutes tonight. He has been hitting and exceeding value in limited minutes recently, and his price is entirely too low for his talent. The Jazz are dealing with an injury to their best rebounder and post defender, which will open some lanes for Faried. If he gets a full games worth of minutes tonight, he should easily exceed value with a tremendous rebounding rate and a good shot percentage around the rim.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic (vs POR, $6,800)

Vucevic is a great rebounder, and he gets the golden matchup against the Blazers. Portland has really struggled to contain big men who can rebound, and that should be no different with Vucevic. He has been playing well in limited minutes recently, and his price is still fairly low. He can be penciled in at a double double floor with the potential for much more. He has the ability to play heavy minutes, and he makes a great play in all leagues while he’s this cheap.
