12 Nov 4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup (11/12/19)
4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup for November 12, 2019
Top NBA DFS Play:
Damian Lillard (PG, $9,500)
Damian Lillard is one of the most reliable fantasy players this season. He is averaging 54.1 DraftKings fantasy points per game with over 50 DraftKings fantasy points in 8-of-10 games.
Tonight, the Portland Trail Blazers are heading to Sacramento to compete in the highest-ranked game total (222 total points).
The Kings are the fourth worst-rated defense in the league, and Lillard should expose them for another 50+ DraftKings fantasy points.
Portland has had a game total of 220 points or more in 8-of-10 games this season. In those games, Lillard is producing 55.9 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
Value NBA DFS Plays:
Cory Joseph (PG/SG, $3,700)
De’Aaron Fox is expected to miss the next three or four weeks with a sprained ankle. Cory Joseph is his interim replacement, starting tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers.
He provided 0.8 DraftKings fantasy points per minute this season, and this past Friday night was a preview of what to expect from Joseph moving forward.
In 29 minutes on the court against the Atlanta Hawks, he scored 24 DraftKings fantasy points. He has a stable floor of around 25 minutes with Fox absent.
In his last 10 games with 25 minutes or more, Joseph is averaging 25.75 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
With Portland allowing the seventh most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing point guards and this contest having the highest total of the night, Joseph is a must have value at $3,700.
Domantas Sabonis (PF/C, $8,400)
Domantas Sabonis draws another start tonight at center for the Indiana Pacers. Myles Turner is still nursing an ankle injury.
With Turner missing in the Pacers’ last four games, Sabonis is a fantasy stud, supplying 50.6 DraftKings fantasy points per game. He double-doubled in all those games.
His matchup tonight isn’t the greatest with the Thunder ranking 12th in defensive efficiency, but just this past Sunday, Sabonis showed us he can excel in tough matchups without Turner.
In 38 minutes, he scored a season-high 56 DraftKings fantasy points against an Orlando Magic defense that ranks fifth in efficiency this year.
He is a $9,000 player with Turner on the sidelines, making Sabonis one of the best point-per-dollar values on tonight’s slate at $8,400.
Jimmy Butler (SG/SF, $7,800)
Jimmy Butler needs to be considered at his sub-$8,000 price tag. He is scoring 42 DraftKings fantasy points per game and will continue to see an increased workload with Justice Winslow out with a concussion.
In the four games that Winslow sat out so far this season, Butler is averaging 46 DraftKings fantasy points per game. That’s 5.9 times value at his salary for tonight.
His opponent, the Detroit Pistons, struggle on defense, ranking as the fifth worst unit in the NBA.
Miami currently holds a Vegas implied team total of 112.25 points, which is the third highest of all 16 teams in action tonight. In the three previous games this season that the Heat held a team total of 110+ points, Butler generated 44.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
