18 Nov 4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup (11/18/19)
4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup for November 18, 2019
Top NBA DFS Play:
Luka Doncic (PG/SG, $9,800)
Luka Doncic’s price tag dropped $500 since his last start without a reason to back it up.
The reigning Rookie of the Year award-winner has been an absolute fantasy stud in 2019-2020. He is producing 59.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game and has exceeded 50 DraftKings fantasy points in 10 of his first 12 games this season.
Tonight, Doncic is on his home floor in a strong matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. He is scoring 61 DraftKings fantasy points per game at home this season, and San Antonio is ranked 25th in defensive efficiency.
The Spurs are allowing nearly 120 total points per game in their last four contests, and Vegas currently has the Dallas Mavericks with an implied team total of 114.5 points (fifth highest of the slate).
Doncic has huge upside and is a steal at $9,800.
Value NBA DFS Plays:
Danuel House (SF/PF, $3,700)
Assuming he jumps right back into the starting lineup, Danuel House is a great punt play for tonight’s slate.
He missed the Houston Rockets’ last two games with a bruised back and is listed as probable for tonight’s matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Eric Gordon (knee) is out, and before House hurt his back, he played a big role for Houston. If fantasy owners exclude the game in which he injured his back, House is averaging 32.2 DraftKings fantasy points per game in 35.6 minutes per game over his last three contests.
With Gordon on the sidelines, House should play around 30 minutes tonight. Tonight’s matchup against the Trail Blazers presents the highest game total of tonight’s nine-game slate (230.5 total points).
In the eight games that House competed in with a total of 230 points or more this season, he is averaging 24.4 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
Fred VanVleet (PG/SG, $7,400)
Fred VanVleet remains underpriced based on his current role with Kyle Lowry (thumb) and Serge Ibaka (ankle) out. In his past four games without these two key players, VanVleet looked terrific with 45.5 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
He saw 40.8 minutes per game over that stretch and should continue to see roughly 40 minutes on the court tonight against the Charlotte Hornets, barring a huge blowout.
Charlotte is currently the eighth-worst rated defense in the league and FVV will make DraftKings look foolish once again for keeping his price so low.
Myles Turner (C, $6,100)
Myles Turner returned Saturday night after missing eight games with a sprained ankle. The Indiana Pacers’ big man wasn’t on a minutes restriction and generated 44.75 DraftKings fantasy points across 33 minutes.
Aside from the game in which he went down with the ankle injury, Turner is averaging 37.5 minutes per game this season, which is a large increase from the 28.6 minutes per game he was logging a year ago.
When healthy, the Pacers’ coaching staff clearly wants Turner out there as much as possible. Tonight, he should see 35+ minutes with the Pacers missing Malcom Brogdon (back), Jeremy Lamb (ankle), and TJ McConnell (back).
This is a perfect matchup for Turner. He faces the Brooklyn Nets, who are terrible at defending centers. They give up the fourth most DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing centers.
Turner supplied 33.2 DraftKings fantasy points per game in three meetings with Brooklyn a year ago. He is a strong target either way, but it is also worth noting that Pacers’ starting power forward Domantas Sabonis is listed as questionable with a hip injury. If he was unable to suit up, Turner enters must-play status.
As the Pacers’ primary big man, Turner wouldn’t lose rebounds to Sabonis and his usage rate would naturally rise. When Sabonis is off the floor this season, Turner’s usage rate increases 7.4% and his rebounding rate jumps 6.0%.
