NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 12/5/15

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 12/2/15. 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

Austin Rivers (vs ORL, $3,500)

Chris Paul is questionable to play tonight, and if he doesn't end up playing, Austin Rivers should crush value. Regardless of Paul's status, J.J. Reddick is doubtful to play tonight against the Orlando Magic, so Rivers should definitely hit value. In his last game, he played 35 minutes against the Indiana Pacers, but he only scored slightly under 11 fantasy points. He has that ability to score around a fantasy points per minute, which puts him at over 30 tonight, but that is very rare. Use him in tournaments only, as he is just too inconsistent to be used in 50/50 contests.

Jamal Crawford (vs ORL, $4,200)

If J.J. Reddick does not play tonight against the Orlando Magic, the entire Los Angeles Clippers team will benefit. Most importantly, the backup guards will benefit. Both Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford make for great plays, and Crawford can be used in any format. When he gets over 30 minutes on the floor, he generally easily hits value. He should play 30 plus minutes if Reddick misses tonight's game, and the Orlando Magic are not great at defending the shooting guard position. Crawford is a pure shooter, but he is great at what he does. Use him in any format.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Nerlens Noel (vs DEN, $6,000)

Jahlil Okafor is still suspended, so Nerlens Noel is going to get another crack at playing the center position for the Philadelphia 76ers. He has been terrible so far this season, but we all know how good he can be. He should be avoided entirely in 50/50 contests, but he can definitely be used in tournaments. In his last game, he only scored 13.2 fantasy points against the New York Knicks in 32 minutes, which is pathetic, but the potential is there. Noel has shown flashes both this season and last season, and it is going to be hard to avoid him with Okafor out and a solid 30 plus minutes almost guaranteed to him.

Omri Casspi (at HOU, $4,200)

Omri Casspi should be back tonight against the Houston Rockets, as he missed last game due to an illness. He is playing around 25-30 minutes per game, and it is very likely that he is going to hit value tonight against the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are one of the worst teams in the league at defending the small forward position, and despite the fact that Casspi does not start, he will still see solid minutes. If he plays 25 plus minutes, he should score around 25 fantasy points, which puts him over value. He makes for a great play in both 50/50 contests and tournaments tonight.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Bismack Biyombo (vs GSW, $3,900) 

Bismack Biyombo is still starting for the injured Jonas Valanciunas, so he should be able to hit value. His price tag is definitely too low, as he has been scoring around 20 fantasy points per game since starting. He does not score all that often, but he is a great rebounder, and he has the ability to block shots as well. He is more of a tournament play, but if you need a cheap center in 50/50 contests, do not be afraid to use Bismack Biyombo. The Golden State Warriors are not the best in the league at defending the center position, and I'm willing to bet that Biyombo hits value tonight.
