DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/1/23): Today's Top NBA DFS Lineups

Nikola Jokic - NBA DFS Lineup Picks, Betting Picks, Daily Fantasy Basketball

The NBA brings a limited schedule Friday that will consist of only six games. There is the potential for some blowouts, including when the Pelicans host the Spurs and when the Magic take on the Wizards.

In terms of injuries, Kristaps Porzingis (calf) will remain out for the Celtics. Notable players who are listed as questionable include Joel Embiid (illness), Devin Booker (ankle), and Jamal Murray (ankle).

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 12/1/23. Remember to monitor NBA injury news and our awesome new NBA injuries report tool as the slate can completely change before lineups lock. Good luck RotoBallers!

DraftKings and FanDuel Guards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Cole Anthony, ORL vs. WAS – PG/SG ($7,000 DK; $6,900 FD)

Anthony is locked in right now. Over the last eight games, he has averaged 18.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists. Not only did he shoot 46.7 percent from the field during that stretch, but he also logged 29 minutes per game. Markelle Fultz (knee) is out again, so expect Anthony to remain in an expanded role.

Jalen Suggs, ORL vs. WAS – PG/SG ($6,200 DK; $5,900 FD)

This should be a popular night to deploy players from the Magic in DFS. The Wizards have played at the second-fastest pace and have the third-worst defensive rating in the league. When Suggs faced them Wednesday, he produced 22 points, three rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 29 minutes. He should also benefit from Fultz being sidelined.

Derrick Rose, MEM at DAL – PG/SG ($4,900 DK; $4,800 FD)

The Grizzlies have been hammered by injuries. When they brought in Rose during the offseason, it wasn’t with the intent of playing him significant minutes. They have had no choice lately, which has left Rose to log at least 20 minutes in three straight games. During that stretch, he averaged 14.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.7 assists. Given his cheap salaries on both sites, he’s at least worth considering in tournament play.

ALSO CONSIDER: Luka Doncic, DAL vs. MEM – PG ($11,400 DK; $11,900 FD), CJ McCollum, NO vs. SA – PG/SG ($7,900 DK; $8,100 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Kevin Durant, PHX vs. DEN – PF ($9,900 DK; $10,200 FD)

It’s not difficult to make an argument for rolling with Durant in DFS whenever the Suns are in action. With his averages of 31.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.1 blocks, he carries an extremely high floor. He has only had one game all season in which he has scored fewer than 25 points, and that came in the Suns’ season opener. One of the main reasons for his success is that he is shooting 51.8 percent from the field and 89.6 percent from the charity stripe.

Franz Wagner, ORL vs. WAS – SF ($7,800 DK; $7,700 FD)

The Wizards had no answer Wednesday for Wagner, who scored 31 points on 11-for-14 shooting from the field. While he normally isn’t that efficient, he is shooting 46.8 percent from the field for the season. With at least 27 points in three of his last four games, it’s difficult to envision the defensively-challenged Wizards being able to slow him down in this rematch.

David Roddy, MEM at DAL – SF/PF ($4,700 DK; $4,600 FD)

The Grizzlies made a change to their starting five in their last game Wednesday against the Jazz. They benched Santi Aldama, replacing him with Roddy. Roddy went on to log 25 minutes, producing 19 points and six rebounds along the way. If he starts again, his cheap salary make him a viable option in tournament play.

ALSO CONSIDER: Zion Williamson, NO vs. SA – PF ($8,900 DK; $8,800 FD), Desmond Bane, MEM at DAL – SF/SG ($8,700 DK, $8,400 FD).


DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Nikola Jokic, DEN at PHX – C ($12,400 DK; $12,700 FD)

Jokic already has seven triple-doubles this season. He has missed recording four others by just one assist each. Not only that, but he is averaging 29.0 points per game, which is on pace to be the highest mark of his career. The center position isn’t exactly loaded for this six-game slate, which might make it even more worthwhile to pay up for Jokic’s hefty salary.

Jaren Jackson Jr., MEM at DAL – C/PF ($8,000 DK; $8,000 FD)

A positive for the Grizzlies is that Jackson has not missed any games because of injury. He is averaging a career-high 32 minutes per game because of all of their depth issues, and that’s not likely to change anytime soon. In his expanded role, he has provided 19.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers per game. The Mavericks don’t have a ton of size up front, making this a matchup that Jackson could potentially exploit.

Dereck Lively II, DAL vs. MEM – C ($4,900 DK; $5,200 FD)

The Mavericks must be thrilled with the initial returns from Lively. The 19-year-old rookie quickly moved into the starting lineup, which has enabled him to average 8.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. He is a perfect lob option for Luka Doncic, which has helped him shoot 71.1 percent from the field. With the Grizzlies dealing with so many injuries up front, Lively has the potential to provide value.

ALSO CONSIDER: Julius Randle, NY at TOR – C/PF ($8,800 DK; $8,500 FD)
