4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup for November 4, 2019
Welcome back, everyone.
Below are four players to help build your best NBA DraftKings lineup for tonight’s six-game slate on DraftKings.
As always, if you need any further lineup advice, don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Twitter.
Top NBA DFS Play:
James Harden (PG/SG, $10,800)
With Russell Westbrook expected to miss tonight’s game (rest), James Harden is a lock at $10.8K.
In all the time he has logged without Westbrook this season, Harden has posted a ridiculous 50.4% usage rate, scoring 1.74 DraftKings fantasy points per minute.
In the 23 games that Houston was without Chris Paul in 2018-2019, Harden saw a 44.5% usage rate, scoring an elite 69 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
Tonight, he should produce MVP-like numbers against a Memphis Grizzlies’ club that ranks 20th in defensive efficiency and third in pace this season. They give up the fourth most DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing point guards with rookie Ja Morant starting at point guard.
Harden is severely under-priced for the role he should take on tonight.
Value NBA DFS Plays:
Gorgui Dieng (PF/C, $3,300)
With Karl-Anthony Towns out due to suspension, Gorgui Dieng drew the spot-start at center on Saturday against the Washington Wizards. In 23.4 minutes on the court, the big man scored 39.5 DraftKings fantasy points.
He most likely would’ve played more minutes if the Minnesota Timberwolves didn’t run away with this game (131-109).
Tonight, Dieng is expected to be in a more competitive game environment against the Milwaukee Bucks, and he will start again with Towns still out due to suspension. Milwaukee has surrendered the seventh most rebounds per game to opposing centers.
Dieng is scoring a strong 1.5 DraftKings fantasy points per minute this season and should crush value at his near bare minimum price tag.
Bruce Brown (SG/SF, $3,200)
With Derick Rose (hamstring), Reggie Jackson (back), and Tim Frazier (shoulder) out on Saturday night, the Detroit Pistons opted to start Bruce Brown at point guard. He flourished in the win over the Brooklyn Nets, scoring a career best 39 DraftKings fantasy points in 40 minutes of court time.
Tonight, Detroit is expected to be without Rose, Jackson, and Frazier again against the Washington Wizards. Brown should start and log heavy minutes.
After their first five contests of the season, Washington ranks as the fourth worst defense in the NBA, allowing the sixth most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing point guards.
Given his small forward eligibility on DraftKings, Brown is a very tough value to avoid tonight.
Luke Kennard (PG/SG, $5,000)
Luke Kennard stepped up with the Detroit Pistons extremely thin on Saturday night.
The Pistons prefer to bring Kennard off the bench, but with Derrick Rose, Reggie Jackson, and Tim Frazier all sidelined, Kennard got his first start of the season. In that game, he played a season-high 37 minutes and earned a 26.7% usage rate, helping him to 34.25 DraftKings fantasy points in the win over the Brooklyn Nets.
He attempted a career-high 19 shots from the field, including 7 from beyond the arc.
He will start again tonight, and the Washington Wizards have been susceptible to long-range shooters like Kennard. They have allowed the fourth-most made three-pointers per game.
His price tag hasn’t budged since Saturday night, and Kennard should return over six times value.
