FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/3/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice


I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and for those of you who made it to your league's fantasy football playoffs, best of luck in the coming weeks. The NBA features seven games on Monday night to kick off the week. On the injury side of things, Draymond Green, Jeremy Lin, Kyle Lowry, Joe Harris, Sam Dekker, David Nwaba, Jeff Green, Trey Burke, and E'Twaun Moore are all in danger of not playing or have already been ruled out. We also have some games with some hefty projected scores as the Clippers visiting New Orleans leads the way with an impressive combined score of around 238 points.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 12/3/18. 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

Emmanuel Mudiay - PG, vs. WSH ($5,000)

Mudiay went wild against the Bucks, finishing things up with 28 points on a lavish 10-for-18 shooting from the field and 4-for-5 from downtown throughout 36 minutes. With Frank Ntilikina in the doghouse and Trey Burke dealing with a knee sprain, the door is open for Mudiay to get some minutes against a horrendous Wizards team.

Danny Green - SG, vs. DEN ($4,700)

Though you would think that Danny Green's latest increase in production is attributed to Kyle Lowry's absence against Cleveland, you are correct; however, he had been getting hot for a few games before that. Over the past three games, Green is averaging 32 minutes, 14 points, and around one block per game. He isn't going to blow you out of the water with production, but at only $4,700, I'll take my chances.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Markieff Morris - PF, @ NYK ($6,600)

After only dropping two points against the Sixers, Morris responded the following night by dropping 20 points, pulling down seven boards, capturing three steals and swatting two shots against the Nets. With Dwight Howard out for a few months after having ass surgery and Jeff Green potentially not playing, Morris should continue to see a healthy amount of minutes for a Wizards team that doesn't have many reliable options.

Kevin Knox - PF, vs. WSH ($4,400)

Just like Emmanuel Mudiay, Knox was also impressive against the Bucks. The 36 minutes and 26 points that he had were both the highest of his career thus far, and he has another shot to make some noise on Monday night. The ceiling is high for him as he will be plenty involved against the Wizards. Look for his ownership to be high, so if you are a contrarian, you may opt to fade him as well.

DeMarre Carroll - SF, vs. CLE ($4,400)

Joe Harris' status for Monday night is still up in the air, but with the calling up of Dzanan Musa from Long Island just a few days ago, things aren't looking good. After Carroll missed a good chunk of the season with an ankle injury, his number has been getting called as of late and he has responded relatively well, scoring 21 points and grabbing 12 boards against Memphis. Though he struggled a bit against the Wizards the following night, I like Carroll's upside enough to mention him against Cleveland, especially if Joey Moses doesn't play.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Tristan Thompson - C, @ BKN ($6,700)

Thompson has been a consistent member of the Cavs starting rotation, and with the team having issues with injuries, Thompson has been playing at a high level. Over the past two games against Boston and Toronto, the 27-year-old pulled down an impressive combined 31 rebounds and though he won't blow anyone away offensively, his ability to get after it on the glass more than makes up for it. As always, look to take advantage of Brooklyn's weak interior defense and roll with Thompson on Monday night.
