FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/1/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

With only six games on the slate tonight, we have to make sure we are precise with our picks. With both Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook available, the choice is yours, but I'm confidently rolling with Westbrook to avoid any late-scratches from the Pelicans organization. It is fairly easy to afford both tonight, so expect most of these players suggested to be on the cheaper side. The Pelicans face the Trail Blazers one night after playing the Warriors, so expect a rebound from shooters, but Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis to experience a little fatigue heading into tonight, so be wary.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/1/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks and our Premium DFS Cheat Sheet. And don't forget to check out our brand new NBA DFS Matchup Ratings tool with daily player projections. Lastly, remember to check your DFS lineups for injury updates.

Do not forget to check your lineups and find me in the NBA Chat Room or on Twitter @HalfCourtJester if you have any questions.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Lou Williams - SG, LAC @ PHI (FD - $5,000)

Right off the bat, you know Lou Williams is a value play. If his price is below $6K, you have to take him in case he has one of his ever-so-common, 40-point performances. They might not be that common, but if you have watched basketball in the past three years, you know never to doubt Lou Williams, even in a slump. The Clippers are playing on the road and while that might not affect seasoned veterans like Tobias Harris or Danilo Gallinari, it might require an extra scoring effort from the backcourt, meaning Lou Williams will be getting the ball even more than he already does.

E'Twaun Moore - SG, NO @ POR (FD - $4,400)

This is the one shooter I expect to continue his hot streak. The Pelicans needed as much scoring as they could get and E'Twaun Moore delivered. He tied his season high and to be fair it wasn't THAT impressive. Not that Moore didn't play well because he did, but he did also leave plenty of points on the table. If Moore can deliver when his team needed him, then tonight he should be able to fall right back into his rhythm against the Trail Blazers. Picking Moore the day after he had one of his best DFS scoring nights is risky, but with players like him, you never know if that one game can turn into a week-long trend.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Miles Bridges - SF, CHA vs. OKC (FD - $3,800)

Miles Bridges game log is not appealing, especially after only playing 16 minutes in a win versus the Heat. That being said, he does offer across the board production with upside in threes. That narrative won't even get a chance to flourish if he doesn't get the minutes, but seeing how the Hornets are very unlikely to beat the Thunder, expect Bridges to see some minutes whether it's early in the game or during a blowout.

DeAndre' Bembry - SF, ATL @ NY (FD - $4,900)

DeAndre' Bembry continues to thrive in his role as a high-energy reserve player, and against the Knicks his work is cut out for him. The Knicks lack hustle rebounders outside of Noah Vonleh and Bembry has the athleticism to give him the advantage over taller forwards. His price is rising and it's becoming less and less of a value play, but his minutes are staying consistent and his shot selection has still been great. If he can convert his shot attempts at a better rate, he'll exceed projected without problem due to his upside in just about every other category.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Brook Lopez - C, @ BOS (FD - $4,900)

Normally, playing a center versus the Celtics wouldn't be the smartest strategy, but this is Brook Lopez. Not many centers are capable of doing much when Brook Lopez is hitting from deep. You cannot afford to allow Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe or Giannis Antetokounmpo into the paint, and you can't allow Lopez to fade on a pick-and-roll. One of those things will be happening at an alarming rate and my guess is Boston allows Lopez to try to beat them with his three ball rather than letting the entire Bucks team dunk on Al Horford and Aron Baynes.
