DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice - NBA DFS Lineup Picks for 12/6/15


Andre Drummond averages 17.0 rebounds a game. (He grabbed 29 in one game earlier this season) Let's take a few seconds to soak up that stat.

He's on this list, of course he is, along with a veteran coming into his own on a new team, in a new city, an emerging rookie on an emerging Detroit Pistons club, unlikely producers stepping up in the wake of injuries, and expensive/inexpensive players certainly worth a look heading into fantasy-point-happy matchups.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings, 12/6/15. Check em' out.

DraftKings DFS Point Guards

Jarret Jack (vs GS, $6,300)

The last time the Brooklyn Nets played the Golden State Warriors on November 11th, Jack dropped 28 points, nine assists, and four rebounds, in a season high 44 minutes played. With the exception of Friday night against the cross-town rival New York Knicks, the Nets have been in a lot of close games, and have pulled off some surprising victories. Not saying Brooklyn will be the team to beat the Warriors, but Jack will need to step up against Stephen Curry and duplicate his performance from three weeks ago, or at least come close to it. Shane Larkin, Jack's backup, is an honorable mention at the one spot, and could see similar minutes for a cheaper price.

Deron Williams (at WAS, $6,600)

There is a star-studded lineup of starting point guards to choose from on Sunday, and I'm going with two of the least expensive, including one seasoned veteran. It appears that all Williams needed was to be taken out of the Big Apple, as he has performed significantly better this season, especially of late. Coming off two straight games of 20+ points, playing 45 and 38 minutes respectively, which are both season highs, Williams will look to produce against a Washington Wizards team underachieving thus far. The Wizards surrender 104.2 points per game, sixth most in the NBA. They also allow 9.8 threes a game, with an opponent .389% from behind the arc, second worst in the league. Friday night against the Houston Rockets, Williams attempted ten three pointers.

 

DraftKings DFS Shooting Guards

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (vs LAL, $4,800)

Facing the Los Angeles Lakers, Caldwell-Pope should find plenty of opportunities to produce. The Lakers hand over a bloated 105.4 points per game, fifth worst in the league. I also like Caldwell-Pope because he is playing in a backcourt shared with the sizzling Reggie Jackson, who already has my vote for Mr. December (bad joke). Caldwell-Pope is inexpensive and has displayed thievery in all but three games this season (28 steals overall, 1.5/game). In his third year as a pro, Caldwell-Pope's numbers have bumped up from his career averages.

Bradley Beal (vs DAL, $6,900)

Since returning to action after missing three straight games in the middle of November, Beal has been itching to break out, teetering around potentially getting hot and getting the talented Wizards finally rolling alongside John Wall. He did Friday night, break out that is. Beal dropped 34 points, grabbed nine boards, and dished out five assists against the Phoenix Suns. He also went five for eight from downtown; numbers that could tear apart a Dallas Mavericks team that have allowed the second most three point attempts in the league with 27.2 a night. Beal has averaged close to six assists in his past four games, and has scored in double digits in his last seven.

 

DraftKings DFS Small Forwards

Brandon Rush (at BK, $3,500)

While Harrison Barnes continues to miss action, the starting small forward position has been temporarily inherited by Brandon Rush. Rush is a very cheap option, playing for a very, very good team. Perfect, actually. For his price, production of fantasy points between 15 and 20, should be considered a victory alongside the never-ending list of W's for the Warriors. Presumably, increased minutes should go to Andre Iguodala, but Golden State's sixth man has been relatively unproductive of late. Rush has a world of potential, especially from long range. Now facing the generous Nets, Rush should find plenty of opportunities to score, even if his minutes played only tiptoe around 20 minutes.

Stanley Johnson (vs LAL, $4,200)

Against the Houston Rockets on Monday, a similarly poor defense as the Lakers, Johnson dropped his first double-double of his rookie campaign, 19 points and ten rebounds; resulting in an impressive 42.0 fantasy points. He has nailed nine three's in 15 attempts over his last four games. It's easy to attempt as many shots as you want from behind the arc with Andre Drummond standing under the hoop, and it'll be even easier against the Lakers who let up 8.9 threes and 26.3 attempts a night. If Johnson continues this production, his price will undoubtedly continue to rise. So grab him while he's still this cheap, because the rookie will only get better.

 

DraftKings DFS Power Forwards

Jon Leuer (at MEM, $4,100)

Leuer has been an important addition to the recently ailing Phoenix Suns. With Markieff Morris day-to-day (even though he played Friday night) and Tyson Chandler nursing a hamstring injury, Leuer has found himself on the court in an increased role and has made the most of it. He has scored in double digits in four of his last six games, including two 20 point performances, and has seemingly moved ahead of Mirza Teletovic on the depth chart. Leuer is an inexpensive option, and could continue to start over Morris who came off the bench Friday night.

Draymond Green (at BK, $8,000) 

Green is the best overall option at the four-spot on Sunday. With Barnes likely to miss another game, Green will look to exploit Brooklyn's shoddy defense. The Nets allow 24.1 assists a contest, the second most in the league; Green averages 7.7 assists a night, and has averaged 9.8 over his last four games. Also over that span, he has grabbed over ten boards in each, swatted 9 shot attempts, and picked up two steals. The Nets give up 8.9 steals and 5.7 blocks per night, eighth most in the league.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Andre Drummond (vs LAL, $9,000)

I mean, what do we really need to say about the beast incarnate they call Andre Drummond. Drummond is always worth spending money on, considering he has grabbed double digit rebounds in all but one game this season. One. I'm not even going to waste my time on points scored here. Why bother when this dude is facing a Lakers team who relinquish 35.6 defensive rebounds a night, fifth most in the NBA, and 11.5 offensive rebounds, seventh most. In his fourth season, Drummond has already undoubtedly thrown his name into MVP consideration.
