RIVAL Fantasy NBA DFS Picks - Fantasy Bingo for 11/29

Joel Embiid - NBA Injury News, Daily Fantasy Basketball, DFS Lineup Picks

Happy Wednesday, RotoBallers, and welcome back to our new series covering RIVAL Fantasy Bingo picks for the NBA Season! We will be covering how to play and the strategies to win.

Fantasy Bingo is a spin on the classic game Bingo but the goal is to match achievements, not numbers. You will build a DFS lineup for the weekly games to unlock the achievements and fill in those squares. You can win by getting five in a row, all four corners, or an entire card blackout.

The prize pool for the weekly slate is distributed among all of the winning cards. They are broken down in two ways. 56% of the prize pool to cards that have five in a row – vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. 44% of the prize pool is for cards that just cover the four corners. Also, the prize pool gets larger as more bingo cards are entered. You can have up to 100 max cards all with different lineups created. Check here for the updated rules and scoring.

RIVAL Fantasy Bingo Strategy

When it comes to Fantasy Bingo and NBA, the strategy will be different than the NFL Strategy. Stacking would go out the window unless the slate is two to three games. Targeting high usage players though is the same. Players who can fill multiple categories on the stat sheet like Nikola Jokic, Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Ben Simmons (surprisingly). On top of that, if players are averaging double-doubles or triple-doubles at a good rate, you'll want to get a piece of that pie as the Bingo Cards may call for it.

Targeting defensive players who are logging more than two blocks or steals per game will be needed also. Those appear at a consistent rate on the Bingo Cards. Players like Chet Holmgren, Victor Wembanyama, Anthony Davis, and Joel Embiid excel at blocks and are averaging more than two per game. For steals, players like Marcus Smart, Donovan Mitchell,  and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander are already recording 2.5 steals a game.

Filling every single category of the stat sheet will be needed as you construct your lineups. Spreading it out between key offensive and defensive players as there is no salary cap for you to be restricted by. Look for games with high totals, teams that play at a fast pace, and players that may get boosts from teammates ruled out due to injuries. You are able to make your lineups throughout the night but waiting for injury news to rule in will be your best route to go before the first game tips off.

RIVAL Fantasy Bingo Picks

Joel Embiid vs. New Orleans Pelicans

The Philadelphia 76ers are in a great stacking spot versus the New Orleans Pelicans. Starting out with the reigning MVP, Joel Embiid, who has been on fire to start the season. He is averaging a double-double with 32 points and 11 rebounds per game while holding a usage rate of 35.9%. What makes Embiid a great target for Fantasy Bingo is that he's now adding on defensive statistics to help cover squares. In his last five games played, he has recorded 11 blocks and four steals. Averaging almost 35 minutes of play, it is hard not to include Joel Embiid in a lineup for tonight's action versus the Pelicans.

Tyrese Maxey vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Continuing the 76ers stack, Tyrese Maxey is in an even better position. The Pelicans currently allow opposing guards to average 26 points, eight assists, and five rebounds per game. With a pace of possession of 103.4, the 76ers will be getting a slight boost in play to match the pace. Maxey is averaging a usage rate of 26.1% but is getting high minutes in play, averaging 38.4 per game.

The opportunities will be there for him and if not, he'll be able to create them. In the past five games, he has scored 25 or more points in four of the games while averaging nearly eight assists or rebounds in those games. He doesn't have the double-double upside that we usually target but the minutes are there to take the shot on him tonight.

De'Aaron Fox vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Continuing with the guards, De'Aaron Fox has been a usage machine for the Sacramento Kings since his return from injury. He is currently holding a usage rate of 32.2% while averaging nearly 30 points, six assists, and four rebounds per game. Similar to Tyrese Maxey, the double-double upside may not be there but his volume of play is crucial as he is averaging 36.1 minutes per game.

He also has the upper hand when it comes to the fourth quarter, where he usually takes over. Facing the Los Angeles Clippers, the Kings get the upper hand in the pace of play as they average 104.5 possessions per game while the Clippers average 102.4. Mix that with the Clippers' struggles to stop opposing guards and De'Aaron Fox is a prime play to roll out with the 76ers stack.
