As Week 15 of the NFL season is here, the NBA has a scaled back, four game slate. However, there is still plenty of hoops action to go around to satisfy your fantasy desires, which will come at a good time, especially if you aren't contending for a fantasy football title. Plenty of good matchups as well as plenty of injuries to keep things interesting.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 12/17/17. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options, and value plays on FanDuel.

Good luck on Sunday in all of your fantasy endeavors!

FanDuel DFS Guards

Victor Oladipo - SG, @ BKN ($9,700)

If you follow Vegas, which you should be, this game is expected to the highest-scoring contest on Sunday. Both teams play relatively fast and for that reason, plenty of shots are going to fly. Though the matchup with Brooklyn isn't the most favorable one, it isn't the worst either. Expect a good game from him, especially if Thaddeus Young is out as a result of a knee issue.

Darren Collison - PG, @ BKN ($5,800)

In addition to Victor Oldaipo, Darren Collison is going to get a mention. With Brooklyn giving up nearly 28 points to opposing playmakers per contest over the past five games, Collison has a good shot at a solid fantasy day on Sunday.

Other DFS Guards to Consider: John Wall - PG, vs. CLE ($9,500), DeMar DeRozan - SG, vs. SAC ($9,000), Buddy Hield - SG, @ TOR ($5,300), Luke Kennard - SG, vs. ORL ($3,700 - if Avery Bradley sits)

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Mario Hezonja - SF, @ DET ($4,000)

Everyone needs a value play and with Aaron Gordon out on Sunday, Mario Hezonja may be your guy. He only needs to hit 20 fantasy points to hit the magical five times value mark, something that is easily attainable. However, he will lose some appeal if Arron Affalo or Jonathan Isaac are playing. Keep an eye on those two prior to opening tip and take it from there.

Reggie Bullock - SF, vs. ORL ($3.800)

Another value play available is Reggie Bullock. Has been rolling with the starting unit and has made the most of the opportunities presented to him. He put down 15 points and was allotted 33 minutes against Indiana on Friday night. If you want to get guys like LeBron James in your lineup, you are going to have to cut corners somewhere. Bullock can be your guy.

Other DFS Forwards to Consider: LeBron James - SF, @ WSH ($12,500), Jonathon Simmons - SF, @ DET ($6,600), Domantas Sabonis - PF, @ BKN ($4,300 - if Thaddeus Young sits)

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Jahlil Okafor - C, vs. IND ($4,800) 

While everyone has been talking about Nik Stauskas' performance against Toronto on Friday night, and with good reason, Jahlil Okafor went unnoticed. Though the 10 points and four rebounds wasn't the best performance, it looks as if he is slowly transitioning to becoming the man in the middle in Brooklyn. He's a solid option, especially against an Indiana team that is struggling against opposing big men all season.

Other DFS Centers to Conser: Kevin Love - C, @ WSH ($8,000)
