DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/23/19): NBA DFS Lineups


There are nine games on today's slate and all are supposed to be moderately high-scoring. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Love, Donovan Mitchell, and Jimmy Butler need to be considered based on their prices and upsides since all have favorable matchups, and outside of Antetokoumpo, all are reasonably priced.

There is one player tonight that has been making and breaking lineups all season, until recently, mostly breaking. C.J. McCollum was going on a serious drought and the past two season have been somewhat rough in terms of efficiency. We've seen what he can do without Damian Lillard, so make after making sure Lillard is still missing time. There is value out there so don't feel the need to play McCollum since he is still susceptible

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/23/19.  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.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Tim Frazier- PG/SG, DET @ MIL ($3,000)

Bruce Brown Jr. had a fantastic game against the Hawks and this isn't to take away from that. He only missed one shot while distributing the ball and creating offense from his defense. Since he played 33 minutes and had such a good game, it makes sense to think he might see a few less minutes while Derrick Rose and Tim Frazier see a slight boost. This is a risk, but at the point guard position there isn't a better basement price option.

Alex Caruso - PG/SG, LAL @ MEM ($3,400)

JA Morant has been great in terms of individual offense, but it hasn't really carried over to his teammates just yet. Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jonas Valanciunas have no problem producing, but everyone else is struggling mightily. Luckily for us the defense isn't any better so not only does Alex Caruso have upside from the Lakers playing last night against the Thunder, but if this game gets out of hand, Caruso will be the go-to guy off the bench.

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - SG/SF, LAL @ MEM ($4,000)

Despite how you feel about Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, shooting isn't his strong suit. He will always be a streaky shooter and that is just something that has to be understood about him. On nights against bad teams, he will produce, he just needs to hit the wide-open threes he is going to be taking.

Marvin Williams - SF/PF, CHA v. CHI ($3,700)

The Charlotte Hornets aren't nearly as bad as everyone thought they were going to be, but that is due to Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk being able to take over in clutch situations. On the defensive end, only Marvin Williams has really been able to provide support and it has been a struggle. He wa decent against the Wizards, but no one was really able to get anything going and he wasn't able to get to his spots to be impactful.

Against the Bulls, expect a different result with Williams attempting a few more shots, hopefully hitting more threes and posting more than 10 points. Since he will contribute elsewhere in the stat sheet, if Williams can just score 10 points he will be worth the roster spot.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Mohamed Bamba - C, ORL @ IND ($4,000)

We need to make one thing clear. Jonathan Isaac, Domantas Sabonis, and Khem Birch are the plays here. Isaac might not see more minutes, but his usage will skyrocket while Nikola Vucevic is out, Khem Birch is going to see a drastic bump in minutes, and Sabonis is just going to dominate the paint this entire game. Mohamed Bamba hasn't shown a ton of promise, but he is a big body and he has the length to impact shots.

Given the minutes he will produce, but I can't seem him thriving against the Pacers. While he will exceed his projected, I wouldn't expect a monstrous game from him. Bamba needs to find a way to be a force in the paint or he is going to continue to lose minutes and opportunities to someone like Birch.
