FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/30/17): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We have a relaxed Thursday night ahead of us with only five games on the slate. The same narratives about the same players get boring so I will be giving you more off the wall picks. The lesser known options that might be exactly what you are looking. These picks carry a bit of risk, but what else is fantasy sports than risking it all for gold and glory.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily NBA lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/30/17. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Dennis Schroder - PG, vs CLE ($7,400)

The Cavaliers backcourt is rough and Dennis Schroder is not. While the Cavaliers have pulled themselves out of a slump, the Hawks will likely be their all season long. Schroder is still way too good to be looked over. On teams like the Hawks, there are usually one or two players that will always produce, regardless of the outcome. Kind of like how Brook Lopez was with the Nets a few years back, Schroder is in a similar situation. He is the clear-cut, first option on offense and his usage will always be at the top for Atlanta. Schroder's price might be unappealing, but don't be surprised when he drops a 40-burger Thursday.

Jamal Murray - PG, vs CHI ($5,100)

You might have noticed I have both Nuggets point guards listed. That is no mistake. It's not that the Bulls backcourt is bad, it's just...they aren't very good. The inexperience shows on defense and although Murray and Mudiay are no veterans, both have developed and should not be hindered by the likes of Jerian Grant or Kris Dunn's defense. Murray's price is a tad high which makes me skeptical since this is a value pick, especially since Mudiay can get to the rim easier and has drastically mproved his outside scoring. Murray might be lined up to have a good game since he's starting, but Mudiay has the strength to literally dominate the Bulls guards.

Also Consider: Emmanuel Mudiay - PG, vs CHI ($3,600)


Alec Burks - SG, at LAC ($3,600)

Until the Clippers guards prove they can play defense, I will be absolutely abusing them in fantasy. Stacking, targeting, whatever you want to call it, I am advocating it. If he is being guarded by Austin Rivers, then I want to roster him. The Jazz guards, outside of Donavan Mitchell and Rodney Hood struggle to score consistently. Ricky Rubio is pass-first and a decent option, but Burks gives your lineup that financial flexibility that only a few other players can. Burks has been playing well lately and this is going to be a game where will have the chance to earn extra minutes. Oh yeah, and he's one the cheapest pick I could find that I would actually roster.

Also Consider: Dwayne Wade - SG, at ATL ($6,000)


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Jeff Green - PF, at ATL ($3,800)

You probably do not like seeing this name here, but Jeff Green has actually been much better this season. His overall production is spaced out into a decent season and more importantly, this game has the chance to be a perfect game for him to have another minor explosion. Jeff Green will not likely go for more than 20 points on any night, but the Hawks frontcourt is more than weak enough to exploit. If someone rests, which won't happen, Green's value boosts. Even without it, the Hawks struggling against athletic players like Green make this an ideal matchup super-cheap.

Also Consider: Bobby Portis - PF, at DEN ($4,300)


Wesley Johnson - SF, vs UTA ($4,700)

It's decently hard to pass up Wesley Johnson now that the Clippers have no source of offense outside Lou Williams. The ball will be moving and Williams will be driving and shooting. Johnson may be notorious for missing outside jumpshots, but since he has had more repition in recent games, he seems to have found a rhythm. Remember, this is still Wesley Johnson, but without any other scorers it's almost guaranteed he will have to produce. He can rely on his athleticism for other stats and his price is just low enough to make him worth it.

Also Consider: Sam Dekker - SF, vs UTA ($3,800)


FanDuel DFS Centers

DeAndre Jordan - C, vs UTA ($7,400)

Yes, this wasn't an exciting pick, but on the bright side, the Utah Jazz are still one of the toughest teams on opposing centers in the statbooks. DeAndre Jordan may be nearly impossible to keep off the boards, but it is still possible. Even though he has something close to unlimited upside Thursday, the Jazz like to slow the ball down and that could hurt his stats. The Jazz frontcourt is nothing too threatening without Rudy Gobert and Jordan is going to capitalize. Ha, my last three players are Clippers...injuries are bittersweet when it comes to fantasy.

Also Consider: Thon Maker - C, at POR ($3,500)
