FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/25/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice


Happy Holidays, everyone. The league features some exciting matchups on Christmas, with five games taking place throughout the day, beginning at 12:05 pm (eastern). Since lineups will lock early, be sure to avoid players who are listed on the injury report, especially those who are listed as anything other than probable.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 12/25/19. 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.

Give me a follow on Twitter @Den_Clausen. Thanks for reading, and have a happy and healthy holiday. Good luck.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Kyle Lowry - PG, vs. BOS ($8,000)

Lowry is very generously priced on Christmas Day and has been on a roll as of late, primarily with Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, and Norman Powell all out as a result of various ailments. Since returning at the beginning of the month after missing some time with a thumb injury, Lowry has logged less than 30.9 fantasy points just one, while also producing at least 36 points in nine games during that span. Ownership will probably be high, but if you are looking to play the role of contrarian, this isn't the place to do it.

Gary Harris - SG, vs. NOP ($4,600)

With the slate featuring some of the highest-priced options of the year all jam-packed into one day, Harris provides adequate salary relief, while also adding a significant upside. With Lonzo Ball likely dealing with Jamal Murray, the 31-year-old has the luxury of being trailed by Jrue Holiday, a player who has semi-struggled on the year by sporting a defensive rating of 113.6, so Harris, who continues to see around 35 minutes per contest, could be in store for a reliable outing

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

LeBron James - SF, vs. LAC ($9,800)

James missed the team's last game against the Denver Nuggets due to back and groin injuries but is expected to play against that other Los Angeles team on Wednesday. James has been one of the most efficient players on Christmas over the years, averaging 26 points, 7.6 boards, 6.7 assists, and nearly two steals throughout 38.2 minutes in 13-holiday appearances. He will be tasked with some scary matchups with some of the best defenders in the league in Patrick Beverley and/or Kawhi Leonard, but based on his Christmas resume, things are looking good for the veteran against the Clippers.

Alec Burks - SF, vs. HOU ($5,700)

Glenn Robinson Jr. should be good to go after not playing against Minnesota as a result of a bum ankle. Nonetheless, Burks still has a significant chance to produce and should continue to get plenty of minutes off the bench. He was a welcome addition to DFS Rosters on Monday night by finishing the with 25 points, eight assists, and three steals for a whopping 50.4 fantasy points. He should be another popular play on Christmas, especially considering he put up 43.1 and 33.2 fantasy points in the previous two games before his matchup against the Timberwolves.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, vs. NOP ($9,400)

After starting the year chubby and out of shape, Jokic is beginning to return to form. He has enjoyed a sizable increase in nearly all statistical categories this month compared to last, including field goal percentage, three-point percentage, assists per game, and last but not least, points per game. He has logged a triple-double in three of his previous six games, while also recording 1.4 fantasy points per minute this season.
