NBA DFS Value Plays for FanDuel, DraftKings on 11/20/19

DFS value plays can make or break a lineup on FanDuel or DraftKings, and navigating through the handful of players who may benefit from increased roles can be a nightmare. On Tuesday night, we saw guys like Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel, and Nicolo Melli (among others) crush their respective values. If you were one of the fortunate ones to have some of those guys in your DFS lineup, congratulations, you probably did well. If you didn't, Wednesday is a new night to kick some ass. As always, with NBA DFS, keep an eye on injuries right up until opening tip.

In this piece, we're looking deeper for low-cost value plays that can make or break a winning cash or tournament lineup for each DFS slate. Below are my NBA DFS value plays for FanDuel and DraftKings on 11/20/19, and can be as a result of injuries, suspensions, or any other situation that may increase a player/player's ceiling. These are projected swaps in the event of confirmed absence/absences, so make sure you're thoroughly informed with the latest NBA lineups and injury news before you start building your lineups.

Message me on Twitter @Den_Clausen and let me know if you have a value suggestion. Good luck.

Today's DFS Value Picks for FanDuel, DraftKings

Jeff Teague - vs. UTA ($6,400 FD, $6,300 DK)

Jake Layman, Shabazz Napier, Josh Okogie, and Andrew Wiggins are all in danger of missing this matchup against the Jazz, and if any of them are out, especially Wiggins, the veteran will get an increase in usage. He has accumulated a double-double in two of his last three outings, and has a good chance to do it again against Utah on Wednesday night.

Eric Paschall - @ DAL ($5,900 FD, $5,900 DK)

Paschall has stepped up in the absence of both Stephen Curry and D'Angelo Russell and continues to see a consistent role in coach Kerr's rotation, even with Draymond Green back in the mix. Though the Warriors played on Tuesday night, the 23-year-old is averaging nearly 17 points and shooting 60 percent from the field on the second of back-to-back outings. The price is up there to be classified as a traditional "value play," but when you consider the cost of other guys at the four spot on Wednesday night, it isn't so bad.

Kendrick Nunn - vs. CLE ($5,800 FD, $6,100 DK)

Justise Winslow will remain out on Wednesday night with a concussion, leaving a lot of the ball-handling duties to Nunn, who has recorded almost 40 minutes in each of his last three games. He has also taken at least 16 shots per game during that span, and even with Goran Dragic returning after being out against the Pelicans with an illness, Tyler Herro will be the one to see the decrease in minutes. Keep rolling with Nunn until Winslow is back in the lineup.

Donte Divincenzo - @ ATL ($5,000 FD, $4,700 DK)

DiVincenzo has played well as of late and has entered the starting rotation in place of Khris Middleton, who is expected to miss a few weeks with a quadriceps injury. He has at least 14 points in his previous two outings and is always a threat from deep. With the Bucks expected to win decisively over the Hawks, Giannis Antetokounmpo could find his way to the bench earlier than usual, giving DiVincenzo the green light to fire away.

Norman Powell - vs. ORL ($4,900 FD, $5,500 DK)

Powell has playing a ton of minutes over the last two games and will probably do so again versus the Magic. He has scored at least 17 points in each of his previous two games and should continue to enjoy the benefits of Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka's absences until one of them is back in the lineup, with the latter's return coming much sooner.

Joe Harris - vs. CHA ($4,800 FD, $4,900 DK)

Harris played miserably against the Pacers on Monday, finishing with just seven points on 3-for-8 shooting from the field to go along with an uncharacteristic 1-for-5 from beyond the arc. The whole team played like garbage in that one, so let's give him a free pass as he put up 22 points against the Bulls over the weekend. Look for him to get back on track and finish behind Spencer Dinwiddie in the scoring column against Charlotte.

Terrence Ross - @ TOR ($4,600 FD, $4,800 DK)

Keep an eye on Jonathan Isaac on Wednesday night as he is a game-time call after missing his previous two with a bum ankle. If the sophomore is out of the lineup, there will be plenty of shot opportunities to go around, with Ross being the primary benefactor in this case.

Garrett Temple - vs. CHA ($4,400 FD, $4,700 DK)

Kyrie Irving is set to miss his third straight with a shoulder issue, and with his absence, the door is open for other players to step up. Temple logged 32 minutes against Indiana on Monday night and finished with 10 points, six rebounds, and two blocks. While some of the additional minutes he saw were a result of the Pacers' massive lead, the veteran should still get between 25-30 minutes against the visiting Hornets.
