DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/6/22): Today's Top NBA DFS Lineups

luka doncic NBA dfs lineup picks daily fantasy basketball advice

Happy Tuesday RotoBallers! Another solid slate is in front of us, with the national TV double-header on TNT as a headliner. These articles focus on the overall best plays, which are typically more suited for cash games. However, some exceptions may apply, depending on the size of the slate.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 12/6/22. Remember to monitor NBA injury news and our awesome new NBA injuries report tool as the slate can completely change before lineups lock.

As always, feel free to follow my Twitter (@Maxadelphia), to keep up to date with NBA news and for my nightly NBA bets if you're into that sort of thing. Let's go!

DraftKings and FanDuel Guards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Luka Doncic - PG, DAL @ DEN ($13,000 DK, $11,800 FD)

The number one PPG scorer in fantasy basketball this season, how could I ever reasonably leave Luka off a top plays list? Sure he might be astronomically priced, but when you're looking at a floor of 63 points (his per-game average on DK this year), you make the ancillary pieces work.

Donovan Mitchell  - PG/SG, CLE vs LAL ($8,700 DK, $8,800 FD)

Mitchell and the Cavs are coming off one of the ugliest games you'll see all year – an 81-92 loss to the Knicks where they shot sub-35% from the field and were out-rebounded by 15. Lucky for them, they get to play a Lakers team that has only allowed less than 100 points twice this whole year (both times against the Spurs). This looks to be a promising bounce-back spot for a Cavs team that currently sits third in the Eastern Conference.

Lonnie Walker IV - SG/SF, LAL @ CLE ($4,600 DK, $5,200 FD)

Walker has scored 28+ fantasy points in 4 of his last 6 contests, averaging 32 minutes per game during that stretch. Value at guard is very thin tonight, but Walker projects as the best of the sub-$5k group.

Others to consider: Jamal Murray ($7,100 DK & FD), Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($4,000 DK, $4,600 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

LeBron James - SF/PF, LAL @ CLE ($10,400 DK, $10,900 FD)

The Lakers have won 3 straight and are playing their best ball of the year so far. LeBron averages 29.4/7.1/7.3 over 19 games against the Cavs in his career, and the last time he played in Cleveland he posted a monstrous 38/12/10 triple-double. LeBron could provide access to the same type of output as the few options priced above him, and if he does, you'll likely have the edge in other positions due to savings.

Kevin Love - PF/C, CLE vs LAL ($5,100 DK, $4,900 FD)

Love has recently returned from an injury, only playing two games since. One of those games was the aforementioned ugly Cavs loss vs the Knicks. The other is a 32.25 fantasy point performance at home against the Magic. Love has been good on a per-minute basis this year for fantasy purposes, so on a slate where there's little to no extreme value, I'm okay with sacrificing a bit of ceiling for the floor.

Tim Hardaway Jr. - SG/SF, DAL @ DEN ($4,400 DK, $5,700 FD)

This is primarily a DraftKings play due to the biggest mispricing on the slate, but THJ's production can't be ignored on either site. He's averaging 40 DK PPG in his last 3 games and seems to have finally broken a bad 5 game slump. Guys like Hardaway don't stay hot forever, take advantage while he's in a zone (fingers crossed I don't jinx him).

Others to consider: Evan Mobley ($7,600 DK, $7,800 FD), Troy Brown Jr. ($3,200 DK, $4,100 FD)

 

DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Nikola Jokic - C, DEN vs DAL ($11,400 DK, $11,300 FD)

The Big Quesarito is coming off his best fantasy performance in over a month; coming up 1 assist shy of a triple-double in a 71.5 fantasy point performance. Last year, in 3 games against the Mavs, Jokic averaged 28/10/6, and if you believe he can match (or hopefully exceed) those numbers, you're looking at a solid 50-point floor.

Maxi Kleber - PF/C, DAL @ DEN  ($3,400 DK, $4,200 FD)

This is strictly a volume-based play. Kleber is averaging 26.6 minutes per game over his last 5 games. He has produced solid, but not amazing scores in the process. In a slate starved for value, sometimes you just need to click the guys who actually see the floor and hope they have an upper percentile outcome. For what it's worth, Kleber has registered 7+ rebounds in 4 straight games vs the Lakers and is averaging 27 minutes per game in those contests, suggesting he might have a good matchup against the Lakers.

Others to consider: Bam Adebayo  ($8,000 DK, $8,900 FD)
