Welcome to another night of daily fantasy basketball. With only five games to choose from, it is essential to hit on all of those value players. This article will help! Who is ready to see Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant square off for the first time since Durant landed in Golden State? I sure am.

In this column, you will find my daily fantasy NBA lineup picks for FanDuel on 11/03/16. These NBA DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays on FanDuel. Good luck tonight. May November forever be in your favor.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Russell Westbrook - PG, at GSW ($12,200)

Russell Westbrook's price tag is growing by the game, but it is still not high enough to avoid him. He has over 55 fantasy points in all of his first three starts this season, and against the Phoenix Suns, he posted over 80. He is shooting the ball over 20 times per game, dishing out assists, and grabbing rebounds. He contributes in all stat categories, and a triple-double has been expected at this point. Westbrook can be used in both 50/50 contests and tournaments.

Zach LaVine - SG, vs DEN ($6,000)

Zach LaVine looked great in his last game. He posted over 35 fantasy points in only 29 minutes on the court. The Minnesota Timberwolves dominated the Memphis Grizzlies, resulting in the starters sitting out the fourth quarter. LaVine had 31 points already, along with four rebounds and two assists. He should be able to score tonight against the Denver Nuggets, a team that is not known for defense. LaVine's price tag is reasonable, and his upside is great.

Also Consider: Evan Fournier - SG, vs SAC ($6,000)


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kevin Durant - SF, vs OKC ($9,700)

Both Kevin Durant and LeBron James are worth consideration tonight, as the two elite small forwards are not priced adequately. Durant posted over 50 fantasy points in three of his first four games, 'struggling' against the Portland Trailblazers in 30 minutes. If he would have played his normal minutes, he likely would have posted over 50 fantasy points for the fourth straight time. Tonight, the Oklahoma City Thunder are going to push the pace of the game forward. Both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will bring their best. This should be a very exciting matchup.

Gorgui Dieng - PF, vs DEN ($6,500)

Gorgui Dieng has been very consistent this season for the Minnesota Timberwolves. He posted over 35 fantasy points in all three of his first three games, and even in a blowout, he played over 30 minutes. He is basically matchup proof, and he is stealing rebounds from Karl-Anthony Town on a nightly basis. With his added scoring and shot blocking abilities, his upside is through the roof, especially against a team that struggles against opposing big men. Attack the Denver Nuggets tonight. The Timberwolves' offense is hot.

Also Consider: Nikola Jokic - PF, at MIN ($5,900)


FanDuel DFS Centers

Myles Turner - C, at MIL, ($6,900)

Myles Turner has huge upside tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are a team that does not defend the big men positions very well. Myles Turner has a great ability to score when the ball is in his hands. In his first game of the season, he posted over 60 fantasy points in 37 minutes, scoring 30 points and grabbing 16 rebounds. In his next two games, he posted over 30 fantasy points in both of them. His price tag is reasonable, and if not paying up for DeMarcus Cousins tonight, he is the best option.

Also Consider: DeMarcus Cousins - C, at ORL ($9,600)
