DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/22/19): NBA DFS Lineups

With 10 games on the slate, we have a little more room to work with compared to last night's two-game slate. You have Nikola Jokic for cheap, Kevin Love's price is reasonable, Bradley Beal should dismantle the Hornets defense, Donovan Mitchell has a ton of upside, and you are free to choose one of the big three tonight. Luka Doncic, James Harden, and LeBron James are all great plays.

It's hard to say specifically who I want to play tonight this early, but Harden had an off night the other night scoring close to 30, I can't imagine what he will do as a rebound.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/22/19.  You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks.  Remember to monitor injury news as the slate can completely change before line-up lock. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @HalfCourtJester on Twitter.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Delon Wright - PG/SG, DAL v. CLE ($4,200)

With how well Luka Doncic is playing, you might not be surprised that so many other Mavericks hold value tonight, but this is based more on the Cavaliers inability to defend rather than Wright's offensive prowess. Both teams have weak spots and if they are both hitting their shots, it will be a close, high-scoring game. The Mavericks have the edge in terms of sheer talent, but the defenses is what is going to decide this game.

It won't be some defensive showdown, but depending on the matchup, Wright is looking at a game where he has a chance to be left alone nearly all game while Doncic takes most, if not all of the defense's attention.

Dwayne Bacon - SG/SF, CHA @ WAS ($3,200)

Within the every offense there are players are force-fed the ball to try and give them some confidence and momentum. For the Hornets, Dwayne Bacon is that guy. He moves around the court and when facilitating guards like Terry Rozier and Devonte' Graham need relief, they look specifically for Bacon to try and create some individual offense. If he isn't scoring he is borderline useless but he's facing the Wizards so upside is basically maximized.

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Joe Ingles - SG/SF, UTA v. GSW ($4,400)

It's been a slow start to the season for Joe Ingles and that has been enforced by his lack of statistical production. To be fair, he has been playing well, the stats just have not been there. Since picking up Bojan Bogdanovic, a player that does the same things Ingles does if not better, the Jazz have relied on his offense and shooting rather than Ingles. Luckily, playing the Warriors opens up opportunities for literally everyone on the roster. Ingles should exceed his projected tonight but as is the case for most players, he needs to actually hit the three's he attempts.

Al Horford - PF/C, PHI v. SA ($5,700)

Has there been a frontcourt that rivals the porousness of the Spurs bigs' defense? No. Well, maybe the Maverick,s but can you imagine LaMarcus Aldridge trying to defend a pick-and-roll while both Joel Embiid and Al Horford are on the court? Embiid is getting the focus and Horford is about to shoot 10 wide-open corner threes.


DraftKings DFS Centers

Robert Williams - C, BOS @ DEN ($3,200)

You won't find a cheaper center option, but to be fair the Nuggets frontcourt isn't as targetable as it was earlier in the season. Both Paul Millsap and Jerami Grant are carrying a fairly significant impact in terms of defense, but since the Celtics have a rotating center position, Williams might have upside if he can get into individual rebounding battles with the Nuggets. As a whole, I don't think Robert Williams has the ability to simply, "burn" the Nuggets.

He absolutely can hold his own against them, but unless someone else can stretch the floor, he might be limited to rebounds and assists. If Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, or Jaylen Brown is hitting three's at a decent rate, Williams should have no problem exceeding his projected because he will have more of the paint at his disposal, something he desperately needs to produce.
