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

Another small, four-game slate this Thursday, but this week the games are particularly interesting. Two games stick out and you know the games I'm talking about. With these teams, we need to find the most productive players in each game, which will be some of the top tier candidates. You will need to find a way to get one of the big names in your lineup, but I'll leave that up to you, I'm just here to help free up the cap space.

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

Derrick White - PG, SA vs. BKN ($4,300)

Do we trust Spurs point guards yet? Of course not. But there is always promise with how well they have been playing as a core. Since they are a rotation, it's somewhat tough to roster them with hopes they are going to significantly exceed their projected. However, against the Nets last season, Derrick White dropped 26 points on 13 shots. With Spencer Dinwiddie leading the charge, this team has remarkable similarities to last year's team and White has that confidence knowing he can score heading into the matchup

Louis Williams - SG, LAC vs. HOU ($5,500)

This seems almost obvious. His price is so low with how many factors are working in his favor. He does always have the chance to get overshadowed by Paul George and Kawhi Leonard if they both go off, but based on how the rest of the Clippers are playing, Williams gets his 20 points no matter what. With the revenge game aspect along with the fact that the Rockets just force teams to shoot, Williams just has to have a good game and he is crushing his projected.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Vince Carter - SF, ATL vs. UTA ($3,700)

This is crazy, but hear me out. The Hawks are already giving Vince Carter around 20 minutes a game, and while they aren't really trying to win games, they aren't really force-feeding their young guys development minutes either. Since the Jazz play slowly, that already favors Carter. If the Hawks young guys play badly in the minutes they get to start, which statistically has been more often than not, Carter has the green light.

He might have the green light in his potentially final season anyway, but I feel like this matchup was made for each other. It doesn't hurt he's coming off a solid game, since he put together a quality string of games during the middle of the season last year as well. If this is in fact that second game of a week-long stretch of productive games, you won't want to miss it DFS wise.

Ed Davis - PF, UTA @ ATL ($3,500)

Since I already advised one old guy, might as keep with the theme. You could substitute Jeff Green here as well, it doesn't really matter since both players are major risk plays. Ed Davis hasn't seen nearly the usage or the minutes Green has, but now that I have suggested Davis, the thought of him playing against the Hawks frontcourt seems like it would be the play. If he gets minutes, he can't help but put up numbers, but that hasn't been the case lately. Green on the other hand, has gotten the minutes, just hasn't really produced.

Pick your poison here.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Jakob Poeltl - C, SA vs. BKN ($3,900)

Not only does Jakob Poeltl have the highest Pts/$1k for centers tonight, but he is facing the 29th ranked defense versus the position as well. This is purely a stats play and it doesn't hurt that Jarrett Allen is a productive yet, exposable big. He still will have the upper-hand against Poeltl, but the Spurs will find ways to get their frontcourt involved and Poeltl seems to find ways to get touches as it is. He has upside here and with that price, you can't get much cheaper.
