How does everyone feel about Kristaps Porzingis? Is he making a strong run for Rookie of the Year? He's quickly showing the upside that he has to be the face of a franchise.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 12/4/15. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to it!

DraftKings DFS Point Guards

John Wall (vs PHO, $8,300)

Wall has been incredible lately, and anyone that follows his career knows that he is an extremely streaky player. He has scored 60+ fantasy points in two straight games, and he gets another great matchup against the Suns tonight. The Suns are one of the faster paced teams in the NBA, and they have struggled against point guards this season. Wall should have very little trouble imposing his will on the Suns, and he can be used in all leagues.

Jeff Teague (vs LAL, $6,700)

Teague is finally completely off his minutes restriction, and he has scored 30+ fantasy points in five of his last six games while playing limited minutes. He’ll likely play minutes in the low-30s tonight, and he gets a great matchup against the Lakers, who have really struggled to guard anyone this season. Before his injury, Teague was priced at $7,000, and his price will be back around that within the next few games. Get him now while he’s cheap.


DraftKings DFS Shooting Guards

James Harden (at DAL, $10,500)

There is no reason to avoid Harden right now. He has been on fire over the last 10 days, averaging 33.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. He gets a great matchup against the Mavs, who have one of the worst defenses in the NBA against opposing shooting guards. Harden scored an impressive 54 fantasy points against the Mavs earlier this season, and that seems to be his floor right now. He can be used in all leagues.

Tyreke Evans (vs CLE, $6,800)

Evans returned to action a few games ago, and he isn’t on a minute’s restriction. In his first two games, he’s averaging 15.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per game. He’s a triple double threat every time he steps on the court, and his price isn’t quite up to par with his production for potential. His floor should be around 30 fantasy points, but his ceiling is 50+ fantasy points. He gets a good matchup against the Cavs, and he should play big minutes again tonight. He can be used in all leagues tonight.


DraftKings DFS Small Forwards

LeBron James (at NO, $10,000)

The small forward position is awful tonight, but LeBron James leads the way. His price is a bit high for his recent production, as he has only eclipsed 50 fantasy points in 1 of his last 10 games. He gets a great matchup against a fast paced Pelicans team, who has struggled against the small forward at times this season. James has the ability to explode for 60+ fantasy points on any given night, and with a 40 fantasy point floor, he’s one of the best small forward options tonight.

Thabo Sefolosha (vs LAL, $4,600)

Sefolosha has been starting for the Hawks recently, and he has easily been hitting value. If he starts again tonight, he should have no problem exceeding value in 30 minutes of play at his current price tag. Over the last 10 days, Sefolosha is averaging 9.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 blocks, and 2.0 steals per game. He gets a great matchup against the Lakers, who have struggled defensively this season, and he can be used in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Power Forwards

Kristaps Porzingis (vs BKN, $8,100)

Porzingis’ price continues to rise and he continues to exceed value. He does tend to get in foul trouble, which tends to be a problem for young players, and that limits him in some games. When he doesn’t get in foul trouble, he has been outstanding this season. He gets a great matchup against the Nets tonight, and they have really struggled against power forwards. If Porzingis played the entire game, he has 60 fantasy point upside. Still, he’s best suited for GPPs because of his foul troubles this season.

Terrence Jones (at DAL, $4,900)

Jones was moved to the bench in favor of Clint Capela, and that has caused his minutes, production, and price to drop. In his last game, he scored 28 fantasy points in 25 minutes, which shows he still has great upside. Tonight, Dwight Howard will be out for rest, which means Jones will likely draw the start and play 30+ minutes tonight. For his price, he’s arguably the best play on the slate, as he should easily hit value.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Clint Capela (at DAL, $5,800)

As I mentioned earlier, Dwight Howard will be out for rest tonight, which means Capela will draw the start at center and he will have to play big minutes. Capela has flashed tremendous upside when given big minutes, and his price is still fairly low. He gets a good matchup against the Mavs tonight, and Capela can be used in all leagues, although he’s best suited for GPPs because of his foul troubles early in the season.
