DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/20/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Similarly to the last few weeks, we have a smaller Tuesday slate after a rather large Monday slate. There are only four games tonight, but there are a plethora of great fantasy options. There is somewhat of a lack of elite options, as there isn't a single player at $10K or higher.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/20/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups to early and check player statuses prior to opening tip. Give me a follow on Twitter @BalesSJustin with questions or comments. Good luck everyone.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Tim Hardaway Jr. - SG/SF, vs POR ($7,200)

Hardaway has been locked into big minutes over his last two games, and he produced 45.5 and 47.5 fantasy points in those games. He has been enjoying a great season, totaling 23.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.1 steals (35.7 fantasy points) in 32.2 minutes per game. He gets a good matchup against the Portland Blazers, who currently rank 23rd in the NBA against the shooting guard. Hardaway will need to have a big game to keep the Knicks in this game, and he comes with tremendous upside.

D.J. Augustin - PG, vs TOR ($4,300)

Augustin is a cheap option, who has been playing big minutes recently. Over his last four games, he's averaging 13.3 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 6.8 assists (25.3 fantasy points) in 29.3 minutes per game. He has played 27+ minutes in each of those games, and that should be the case once again tonight. Augustin gets a tough matchup against the Toronto Raptors, but he's cheap enough to be considered in all leagues on this slate.


DraftKings DFS Forwards

Serge Ibaka - PF/C, at ORL ($6,000)

Ibaka has been a dominant per minute player this season, as he's averaging 17.5 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist, and 1.4 blocks (32.9 fantasy points) in only 26.5 minutes per game. While his limited minutes are a cause for concern, he gets a great matchup against the Orlando Magic. Ibaka comes with a surprisingly low price tag, and he makes a great option on this smaller slate.

Jeff Green - SF/PF, vs LAC ($4,200)

Green is in a similar position to Ibaka. He's playing minutes in the low- to mid-20s, but he has scored 20+ fantasy points in five of his last six games. He has also scored as high as 35 fantasy points over that span. He gets a great matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers, who love pushing the pace and rank 27th in the NBA against the small forward. Green is a cheap way to get a relatively consistent option, who also comes with quite a bit of upside.


DraftKings DFS Center

Jusuf Nurkic - C, at NY ($7,400)

Nurkic has quietly posted a few huge games recently. He has played 28+ minutes in three of his last four games, and he has scored 43+ DK points in each of those games. Overall, he's averaging 17.3 points, 15.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.0 steal (47.8 fantasy points) in 31.3 minutes per game over that span. On the season, Nurkic has looked elite, averaging 1.4 fantasy points per minute. His inconsistent minutes add to his risk, but if he gets 30+ minutes tonight, he comes with tremendous upside.
