FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (9/9/20): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We have two games on tap on Tuesday, with one contest from both the Eastern and Western Conferences. In the first game of the night, the Raptors will look to avoid elimination when Toronto meets up with the Boston Celtics. In the west, the Nuggets will try to knot up the series with the Clippers after dropping Game 3 on Monday night.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/9/20. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks. Remember to monitor injury news as the slate can completely change before lineups lock.

Feel free to give me a follow on Twitter @DennisMClausen. Good luck.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Kemba Walker, PG - vs. TOR ($8,300)

Despite his efficiency as of late, Walker's rostering cost hasn't increased by much. He has hit at least 37.3 fantasy points in three of the five games against Toronto and hasn't dipped below 28.2 fantasy points during the series. In Game 5, he finished with 21 points and seven boards and should continue to get more chances on the offensive end until Gordon Hayward, who is back inside the bubble, is healthy enough to return to the lineup.

Lou Williams, PG - @ DEN ($5,500)

Williams has had some stellar performances during the postseason, but he's also had some horrendous ones. However, he appears to be playing consistently as of late, averaging nearly 29 fantasy points over his previous two games of the series against the Nuggets. At a rostering cost of only $5,500, the veteran could easily hit his value and potentially help offset the cost to roster some of the more prominent names.

Patrick Beverley, PG - @ DEN ($4,800)

After facing a minutes restriction during the first two games of the series versus Denver, Beverly logged 20 minutes of work in Game 3. Although he only scored seven points in that one, he contributed in other areas, including on the defensive end by recording a steal and a block each. The defensive-minded guard could see his minutes increase in Game 4 and should be considered by those short on funds.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Jaylen Brown, SF - vs. TOR ($7,800)

Brown had a rough outing in Game 4 by finishing with only 14 points on a dreadful 22 percent shooting from the field and 18 percent shooting from deep. However, in Game 5, he got back on track by compiling 27 points off of a much more efficient performance on the offensive end. Like in Kemba Walker's case, Brown, along with Jayson Tatum, will all continue to benefit from Gordon Hayward out of the lineup with a bum ankle.

Daniel Theis, PF - vs. TOR ($5,600)

Theis was hit or miss during the regular season but has been relatively consistent during the playoffs. In 28 minutes per game during the series with the Raptors, he is nearly averaging a double-double while also almost swatting two shots per contest. He should continue to get plenty of opportunities moving ahead to make a dent on the fantasy end.

Michael Porter Jr., PF - vs. LAC ($5,400)

Porter has turned up the volume over his past few games and had arguably his best outing of the postseason in Game 3 against the Clippers. Despite playing only 23 minutes, he still finished with 18 points and was solid on the defensive end by coming away with three steals. Look for him to likely continue to get some time on the floor moving ahead.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Marc Gasol, C - @ BOS ($4,400)

Serbe Ibaka twisted his ankle during Game 5 on Monday night. Although it didn't appear serious at the time, the veteran awoke on Tuesday morning with even more discomfort and took to a walking boot as a result. If Ibaka isn't in the lineup on Wednesday, which may be the case, the door could be open for Gasol to get some more action in the middle. He didn't play well in his previous two games, but he can do some damage on the fantasy end if given the opportunity. For those who are still apprehensive regarding his outlook, Chris Boucher could also be in store for an expanded role without Ibaka in the mix, and his DFS services can be acquired for only $3,900.
