NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 11/30/15

Welcome to another episode of Jason Bales's daily fantasy basketball advice for FanDuel.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel on 11/30/15. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to it!

FanDuel DFS Guards

Damian Lillard (at LAC, $9,400) 

Damian Lillard is one of the best 50/50 contest plays on the board every time he steps foot on the court. Tonight, he gets a solid matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers, and Chris Paul has just not been the defensive stud that we are all used to seeing this season. Lillard is consistently scoring over 40 fantasy points in every game he plays, and he should be able to score over 40 tonight as well. He has the ability to score 60 plus fantasy points, and he will have to perform well tonight if the Portland Trailblazers are going to keep pace with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers are one of the best teams in the league offensively, so Lillard will be shooting early and often to attempt to keep this game close. Use him in any format tonight.

Patrick Beverley (at DET, $3,600)

Patrick Beverley didn't look all that impressive in his last game against the New York Knicks, but he played well against the Philadelphia 76ers, scoring over 20 fantasy points. His price tag is definitely too low, as he is playing around 25-30 minutes per game. The Houston Rockets really needed his defensive presence to stop teams from scoring whenever they want against them. The Detroit Pistons are not a great defensive team, so Patrick Beverley should be able to score some points, and in 30 minutes, it is rather likely that he will hit value with such a low price tag.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kevin Durant (at ATL, $10,500)

Kevin Durant is one of the most obvious plays on the board tonight, and I'll be using him in a vast majority of my lineups tonight. In his last game, he scored 65.75 fantasy points in 38 minutes against the Detroit Pistons. His price tag is still only slightly over $10,000, and over the last 10 days, he is averaging 54.4 fantasy points per game. It looks like he just needed a little bit of time off to deal with an injury, and now that he is fully healthy, he is back to the Kevin Durant that we all know and love (unless you're Russell Westbrook). He is very likely to hit value, and with such a huge price tag, it is essential to play him, especially in 50/50 contests. If you pass on Kevin Durant tonight, you'll undoubtedly be kicking yourself at the end of the night.

Marcus Morris (vs HOU, $5,900) 

Marcus Morris has not been all that great in his last couple of games, scoring only 24.5 and 25 fantasy points in his last two games, but he gets a great matchup against the Houston Rockets tonight, and Morris has huge upside.  Prior to his previous two games I mentioned and one other dud of a game, Morris scored over 35 fantasy points in two straight games. He plays 35 plus minutes per game, and he has the ability to score 40 plus fantasy points. Without many other solid forward options on the board, Morris is one of the best value plays of the night.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Clint Capela (at DET, $4,600)

Clint Capela looked incredible last night against the New York Knicks. He scored 40.75 fantasy points, and he should be able to continue his success as long as he continues to get the minutes necessary to do that. The Houston Rockets have realized his potential, and he is now starting next to Dwight Howard. Obviously, Capela is not a center in the starting lineup, as that is Dwight Howard's spot. FanDuel will not allow us to play both Howard and Capela, so use Capela tonight. He has the ability to outscore Howard, and his price tag is about half of what Howard's is. There is just no reason to avoid him tonight. Use him in every league.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers - Jose Urquidy
