FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/5/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Welcome to NBA Tuesday night! While most eyes were on the NFL this weekend, it was quite an eventful one for the NBA. If you missed it, the Warriors are now the 2017 Brooklyn Nets. We have six games on tonight's slate, which is right in the sweet spot for me. As always, there are a ton of ways to go in tournaments. These are just a few of my favorite plays on the slate. Let's dive in!

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/5/19. 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.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Malcolm Brogdon - PG, IND @ CHA ($9,000)

We’ve been riding this Malcolm Brogdon train to start the season and his price is just now getting up to his production level. It’s no fluke, as Brogdon has taken leaps forward and is in full control of this Pacers offense. He’s been over 40 fantasy points in five of six games and now matches up with the fast-paced Hornets and Terry Rozier. Brogdon is going to play another 30+ minutes and will likely get close to 50 in this match-up. I’m a big fan in all formats. Kemba Walker is another solid play and I don't think you can go wrong at this position.

Gary Harris SG, DEN vs. MIA ($5,200)

Harris is a guy I like to play when I know he’s going to see substantial minutes. With Jimmy Butler on the opposite side, I fully expect 30+ minutes out of Harris and he brings a level of consistency with those minutes. The Heat are playing faster than in years past and Harris derives his upside from running the floor and getting hot from behind the line. I’d rather play him than Herro.

Deandre Bembry SG, ATL vs. SA ($4,700)

Only if Trae Young is out. Bembry put up 44 fantasy points with Young out last game and looked great. He was all over the court and seemed to be involved in literally every play. The Spurs can struggle with size and Bembry is a big-bodied point forward that can get inside and distribute. If Young is out, I love Bembry in all formats.

Anthony Davis - PF, LAL @ CHI ($11,900)

My favorite way to pay up on this slate s with Anthony Davis. The Bulls interior is extremely weak and Davis is going to pick on the likes of Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. He's averaging 1.7 FP per minute when on the floor and could see 35 here. Another thing - Anthony Davis is from Chicago. He always has a little extra when he's in his hometown and playing against the team he grew up rooting for. The 29% usage is absurd for a power forward and the match-up is tremendous. If you can afford Davis, do it.

Daniel Theis - PF, BOS @ CLE ($4,200)

Whether Robert Williams plays or not, Daniel Theis should see close to 30 minutes and is a top value play on the slate. He's hit 25 fantasy points in each of the last two games and now gets a match-up with a Cavs team that plays fast and is terrible defensively. Theis is a candidate to go over 30 fantasy points tonight and you don't want to miss him at that price and ownership.

If Domantas Sabonis is fully cleared, he's a tremendous play against Charlotte.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Gogo Bitadze - C, IND @ CHA ($5,300)

If Domantas Sabonis joins Myles Turner on the bench, Gogo Bitadze is one of the best plays on the slate. Even with Sabonis playing in the last two games, Bitadze has put up 30 fantasy points in 18 and 24 minutes. If he gets 25 minutes against the Hornets, he could easily go for 40 fantasy points. They are terrible against C's and Bitadze should have a fun time. I'm hoping his ownership remains under 15%.
