FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/29/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

I know you all are already jumping at this three-game slate tonight with only the Clippers playing two nights in a row. The Clippers didn't shoot particularly well against the Suns Wednesday night, but they took them out of the game early, and most of the starters outside from Tobias Harris didn't play a full workload. They face the Kings tonight, which is asking for a repeat of last night, so expect Patrick Beverley and Avery Bradley to be much more productive, with Harris doing his nightly share of shooting. My bold, but not really that bold pick for tonight is LeBron James. After "almost" losing to the Pacers last season in the playoffs, James kind of has something to prove against Indiana, and I'm banking on him absolutely dismantling them. The Lakers had no chance against the Nuggets and the entire team NEEDS to rebound so be looking for just that.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/29/18. 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. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @HalfCourtJester on Twitter for any questions.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Cory Joseph - PG, at LAL (FD - $9,700)

Last game he played 27 minutes without scoring a single point. He still posted seven assists with a few rebounds, but the lack of scoring is a major surprise. To be honest, Cory Joseph isn't in the best position for a rebound game, but until Victor Oladipo returns, his minutes are certain. He can do everything necessary to scratch at nightly double-doubles, but he needs more usage and will hopefully benefit from the length of the Lakers keeping the Indiana frontcourt from producing. The Lakers defense isn't good enough to completely stop the likes of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis, but it should cause them to pass out of plenty of situations, leaving Joseph and Darren Collison to pick up most of the slack.

Louis Williams - SG, at SAC (FD - $6,200)

This is a fairly easy pick seeing how Louis Williams is usually due for a big game every week or so. Not the greatest basis to make picks off of but you get the point. His usage rate has been above 30% over the past week and even after his 20 point outing last night, he only played 22 minutes to get there. He should build off of that, and the Kings don't have any defensive playmakers to really stop him. Hoping that the Kings can keep this game somewhat closes only helps Williams' upside.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Tyreke Evans - SF, at LAL (FD - $5,100)

There are too many reasons why to Tyreke Evans tonight and one is that the Lakers best defender, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope doesn't have the strength to stop Evans. That is where this game is going to be decided, and even if Evans isn't the one hitting the shots, he will be the one generating the most offense. When he is playing well there are few players who are more productive and his "I'm getting my 30 points" mindset is exactly what you want out of DFS picks. There are not many options at SF tonight so either go high with LeBron James, middle of the road with Evans or super-value and the always risky Lance Stephenson.

Jonas Jerebko - PF, at TOR (FD - $3,800)

Both the SF and PF options are weak tonight. Domantas Sabonis might be the best forward playing tonight other than Montrezl Harrell, so if you want security, go with Harrell, Tobias Harris, or Sabonis. Mike Scott provides a ton of cap relief if you don't want to be forced to spend up and Jonas Jerebko provides another decent super-value play. There aren't many superstars playing tonight so you might not need to go this cheap, but if you do the upside is there. Jerebko is a stretch that just needs to hit a few shots to exceed his projected. Do not think that using this spot for Jerebko means I am fading Harrell or Sabonis tonight. Both should be played, but if you have been paying attention this season, you didn't need me to tell you that.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Jordan Bell - C, at TOR (FD - $3,500)

Damian Jones or Kevon Looney would be the normal play here, but seeing how Jordan Bell is the most athletic of the three and easily the most versatile, I expect him to provide to be a huge spark off the bench. His recent usage and game log is not impressive in the slightest, but it doesn't provide a good understanding of Bell's upside. The Raptors will likely run with Jonas Valanciunas and Serge Ibaka in the frontcourt, meaning Bell will be tasked with one of the two. Even if he does struggle defensively, he will benefit form the extra minutes and a few opportunities is all he needs to be productive. In games Bell plays above 20 minutes he has contributed.
