NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 12/22/15

By Keith Allison from Hanover, MD, USA (LeBron James) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

Another four games on this Tuesday night, but there should be plenty of points and value to be had. One game should be a blowout, and while the other should be close, one has a clear advantage in presumed pace. The Lakers and Nuggets both love to push the tempo, so remember that when it comes to my picks and yours on Tuesday.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 12/22/15. 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 Point Guards

Reggie Jackson (at MIA, $7,600)

Jackson is the epitome of a tournament play. He has two 55-FDP performances in his past three games, but he has the potential to fall short of 30 too. On a short slate, I don't mind the idea of taking a chance on Jackson. He should take control of the Pistons offense in what could be a close game until the final minutes.

Kyle Lowry (vs. DAL, $8,700)

While Jameer Nelson provides some nice value at his price, it just doesn't make sense to leave money on the table at this position. You'll find all sorts of value at other spots, so mine as well load up on the studs here. Lowry hasn't been himself lately, but Dallas is not intimidating for point guards. He should be in the top two, if not first, in FDP for point guards on Tuesday.


FanDuel DFS Shooting Guards

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (at MIA, $6,000)

KCP has been logging huge minutes lately. His usage is seeing a big uptick too. People might avoid him due to his tough matchup with Dwayne Wade and Luol Deng. However, that would be a mistake at this price. Caldwell-Pope's floor seems like 30 FDP at this point, and he's shown 50-FDP upside. Fire him up.

Louis Williams (at DEN, $5,300)

Playing right around 30-minutes a game, Williams has become the younger version of Kobe Bryant for LA. He's not nearly as good as young Kobe, but the shots that Bryant once took are now going to Williams. He will get a couple of steals a game, and Williams has the ability to shoot the lights out on any given night. The Nuggets provide him a good opportunity to hit at least 30 FDP.


FanDuel DFS Small Forwards

Matt Barnes (at PHI, $4,900)

Barnes needs 25 FDP to hit value at this price. He's been in the 30s fairly consistently. The 76ers provide a nice matchup for the rejuvenated forward, and he is a lock for me Tuesday.

Chandler Parsons (at TOR, $4,300)

Parsons has finally gotten up to 30 minutes a game, and a report came out that this trend will continue. At this price, that's a bargain. There are virtually zero other options at small forward Tuesday, so this pairing is not only due to value, but total points as well.


FanDuel DFS Power Forwards

Kenneth Faried (vs. LAL, $6,500)

Faried is coming back into his own recently, and this is another great spot to target what should be a high-scoring game. Faried should be able to control the boards on Tuesday and pour some points in while he's at it.

Nerlens Noel (vs. MEM, $5,700)

Tis the season, right? Noel has been hardly trustworthy this season, but his last performance showed us the upside that we all know Noel has. This is a nice tournament play simply because his likely low ownership. Noel is going to need to be heavily involved if Philadelphia is going to keep this game close.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Hassan Whiteside (vs. DET, $7,500)

With such little star power on this slate, almost everyone will lean towards Andre Drummond and his huge performance last game. In reality, Whiteside has just as good of a spot, if not better. Both players have the ability to get the other into foul trouble, but I like Whiteside's length in this battle. If he is able to get Drummond on the bench, he should completely take over the game. The difference in this two shouldn't be huge, so differentiate yourself here.
