FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/20/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

After a loaded Monday slate, the league downsizes and features only four games on Tuesday night that should all be high-scoring and competitive. With limited options as a result of the reduced schedule, we need to think outside the box if we hope to win big in tournament play.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/20/18. 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. Make sure you don't set your lineups too early and also be sure to check player statuses and availability prior to opening tip.

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

FanDuel DFS Guards

D'Angelo Russell - SG, @ MIA ($7,300)

I will gladly have recommended having Russell in any fantasy lineup on Tuesday night. With Caris Levert out of commission, the 22-year-old has picked up the slack, averaging 19 points since LeVert's injury. He is also taking more shots and remains Brooklyn's most consistent option on the offensive end. After watching Spencer Dinwiddie implode mentally against the Clippers, I have a hard time trusting him, and as a result, I will put my money on Russell out of anyone on the Net's roster.

Tyler Johnson - PG, vs. BKN ($5,600)

Johnson has been getting some extra work in the absence of Goran Dragic, who is projected to be out for the next week or so. He will likely see between 30-35 minutes against the Nets and will have the ball in his hands for a good portion of the night. I expect him to exceed his value with no problem whatsoever.

Note - Tyler Johnson was ruled out after publication. Dwyane Wade ($5,200) will make his return on Tuesday night against the Nets and will likely see a healthy amount of minutes.

FanDuel DFS Forwards

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

After recommending Green in one of my DFS columns last week, he flopped against Brooklyn, accumulating an embarrassing 8.2 fantasy points. However, he bounced back against Portland, and though he had a rough time shooting the ball, he still managed to accrue 13 rebounds to finish out the night with a smooth 27.1 fantasy points. He has hit the five times value mark in half of his games this season and continues to get his minutes off of the bench. I like Green, especially if Dwight Howard doesn't play after experiencing issues with his ass yet again.

Mike Scott - PF, @ WSH ($3,600)

If anyone on the slate has the most appeal in a "Studs and Scrubs" approach, it is Scott. After Danilo Gallinari missed Monday's game due to illness, Scott stepped up by playing 28 minutes and finishing up the night with 18 points, seven boards, and a block. Keep an eye on Gallinari on Tuesday because if he is feeling better, I will figure out how to roll with Montrezl Harrell instead.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Hassan Whiteside - C, vs. BKN ($8,600)

Just assume from now until the rest of the season that anyone who is matched up against the Nets frontcourt will be listed in my articles because they are garbage in that area. Whiteside rocked Brooklyn's world last week by pulling down an impressive 17 rebounds in addition to blocking three shots. His price is a tad higher than that of previous weeks, but I will gladly pay up in this area. However, if you want to be a contrarian, this is the area to do it since Whiteside will be a popular addition to fantasy rosters on Tuesday night.
