FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/16/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

For those who were eliminated from fantasy football championship contention (myself included) on Sunday, it is time to double-down on NBA. 14 Teams are in action on Monday night, and some notables are listed on the latest injury report, with Moritz Wagner, Isaiah Thomas, Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin, Fred Vanvleet, Austin Rivers, Luka Doncic, Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Justise Winslow, Jae Crowder, Devin Booker, Dario Saric, and basically, the entire Bulls' roster all being listed as either out, or are in danger of not playing. There will be plenty of opportunities for some value plays, so be sure to keep an eye on things, especially as we get closer to tipoff.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 12/16/19. 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

Norman Powell - SG, vs. CLE ($5,000)

Fred VanVleet is currently listed as a game-time call, but realistically, he probably won't play against the Cavs on Monday night. In his stead, Powell has filled in nicely over the last three games by averaging 21 points throughout 31 minutes of action. He should continue to benefit in terms of usage while VanVleet is away, while also continuing to likely see a spike in shot attempts.

Donte Divincenzo - SG, vs. DAL ($4,000)

While Eric Bledsoe is supposed to miss only a few weeks as a result of a leg injury, we know that he could be out longer, or at least limited even if he can return. Nonetheless, in classic NBA DFS fashion, there are some shots up for grabs. DiVincenzo will likely start--or at least benefit tremendously--throughout the duration of Bledsoe's absence, making him a popular value target on Monday night. He split minutes with George Hill, who is another guy who will get a bump, against the Cavaliers, but could easily hit his value against a Mavericks team that is also dealing with a significant injury at the point guard position.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Pascal Siakam - SF, vs. CLE ($8,600)

Just like Powell, Siakam has also benefited from VanVleet out of the mix. He went nuts against Brooklyn on Saturday to the tune of 30 points, 10 boards, five assists, three blocks, and three steals. Everyone, including Kyle Lowry, has no choice but to sit back and watch this man work, so look for him to get nasty once again against the Cavaliers on Monday night.

Tim Hardaway Jr. - SF, @ MIL ($5,400)

Luka Doncic's sensational season will take a momentary pause over the next few weeks after the sophomore injured his ankle during Saturday's overtime loss to Miami. Hardaway stepped up to the plate and was putting up shots in bunches in a performance that resembled his time in Atlanta and New York. He had 28 points against the Heat, finishing by going 11-for-22 from the field while making six of his 14 attempts from deep. He will likely cool off to some degree without the extra period, but he, along with Kristaps Porzingis and Jalen Brunson, will serve as the team's main options over the next few weeks.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Steven Adams - C, vs. CHI ($7,000)

After struggling a little at the start of the season, Adams has turned things around. He has at least 35 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games and will be matched up against a Bulls team that is allowing a league-worst 62.32 fantasy points per game to opposing big men on the year.
