FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/12/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

I hope everyone is enjoying the extended weekend. The league features nine games on Monday night with plenty of injuries to monitor. Keep an eye on Minnesota and the Dario Saric and Robert Covington situation. If those guys are out, along with Andrew Wiggins and Jeff Teague potentially, we will have some minutes available for some sneaky value plays. Aaron Gordon, Caris Levert, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Russell Westbrook, Rudy Gay, and Ricky Rubio are also either not playing, or are at risk of not suiting up. As far as Vegas goes, Brooklyn/Minnesota and Philadelphia/Miami are your projected highest-scoring games of the night.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/12/18. 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.

As always, give me a follow on Twitter and say hello @Den_Clausen. Good luck on Sunday.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Derrick Rose - PG, vs. BKN ($6,900)

Remember when Rose was contemplating retirement last season? Apparently, he forgot about that because he has turned things around this season. Averaging 18.8 points per game, his highest average since the 2011-2012 season, Rose is arguably the second-best offensive option in Minnesota now that Jimmy Butler has packed his bags for the Eastern Conference. His price isn't great, but the pace and Vegas numbers make him a solid pick for Monday night.

T.J. McConnell - PG, @ MIA ($3,900)

The trade involving the Sixers and the Timberwolves will be finalized on Monday -- pending the physicals of all men involved -- which means that Jimmy Butler will be available for Philadelphia on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic, at the earliest. In the meantime, Philly will be spread thin, and with Wilson Chandler on a 15-minute per game restriction as of right now, McConnell will get some extra time on the floor against the Heat. Landry Shamet will also get some additional minutes, but after going 2-for-13 against the Grizzlies on Saturday, including shooting 1-for-11 from deep, I would rather take my chances with McConnell. Don't forget about J.J. Redick either since he is the only guy who knows how to shoot on that team, or at least it seems.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

LaMarcus Aldridge - PF, @ SAC ($8,400)

From a usage perspective, Aldridge is having one of the most efficient seasons of his career. Though Sacramento has turned things around somewhat this season, they are still one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Kings also like to play fast so expect the Spurs to pick it up as well and as a result, it is not out of the question for Aldridge to hit 40 fantasy points on Monday night.

Jeff Green - SF, vs. ORL ($4,200)

One of the biggest issues that the Wizards have had over the last few seasons was their lack of depth off of the bench. Green signed with the team over the Summer and has provided a much-needed spark for the second-unit this season, so much so that he is now favored by coach Scott Brooks to pick up the minutes that were once reserved for Kelly Oubre. He played 34 minutes against the Magic and finished the night with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Take advantage of the discount price on Monday night and get him into your lineup.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Karl-Anthony Towns - C, vs. BKN ($10,300)

This is a great pick for multiple reasons. We already know how much Brooklyn struggles on the interior, giving up 64.14 fantasy points to opposing big men this season, but from a usage standpoint, Towns is now the undisputed top dog in Minnesota after the departure of Jimmy Butler. He dropped 39 points on 27 shots against the Kings on Saturday, and he threw in 19 rebounds to add insult to injury. Joel Embiid is priced higher, but he has to deal with Hassan Whiteside, and unlike Minnesota, Philadelphia has a solid group of guys who are capable of putting up fantasy points. Pinch your pennies and figure out how to get Towns in your lineup because there aren't many players on that team worth much from a fantasy standpoint.
