4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup for November 14, 2019

by Al Hunter

Welcome back, folks.

Tonight, we have a smaller five-game slate.

Below are four players to help build your best NBA DraftKings lineup for November 14, 2019.

As always, if you need any further advice, feel free to reach out on Twitter.

Top NBA DFS Play:

Trae Young (PG, $9,600)

Trae Young is playing brilliantly as of late. In his last three games, Young is averaging 64.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game.

He saw notable increases in both his playing time and usage over his last few games. After seeing 33.12 minutes per game in his first six contests, Young played 39.4 regulation minutes per game across his last three.

Furthermore, his usage rate is at 35.8%, compared to the 34.4% rate he garnered in the first six games of the season.

Tonight, he heads to Phoenix to take on the Suns. Over their last three games, Phoenix is allowing 119.6 points per game, ranking as the eighth worst defense in the league.

During this span, the Atlanta Hawks rank as the fourth worst defense. Vegas is expecting a high-scoring affair between the Hawks and Suns (228 total points).

In his two previous contests this season with a game total of 225 points or higher, Young is producing 63.3 DraftKings fantasy points per game.

At his modest price of $9,600, Young is a no-brainer tonight on DraftKings.

Value NBA DFS Plays:

Derrick Favors (PF/C, $5,500)

Since reentering the starting lineup two games ago, Derrick Favors is producing at a high level. He garnered 29 minutes in each game, helping him to a pair of double-doubles and 36.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game.

Tonight, he competes in the highest game total of the night against the Los Angeles Clippers (235.5 total points).

His individual matchup is average. The Clippers allow the 13th most DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing centers, but Favors is too cheap.

He is contributing 1.26 DraftKings fantasy points per minute in his last two games and should tally his third consecutive double-double in tonight’s shootout.

J.J. Redick (SG/SF, $4,500)

The New Orleans Pelicans’ starting small forward, Brandon Ingram, is questionable with a knee injury. Regardless of his status, J.J. Redick is a strong value option with Lonzo Ball (hip) out of the lineup.

He started in New Orleans’ last two games without Ball and scored 34.13 DraftKings fantasy points per game. He is knocking down an average of six three-pointers per contest as a starter in 34 minutes per game.

His opponent tonight, the Los Angeles Clippers, allow the seventh most made three-pointers per game this season. Additionally, Redick is generating 24.5 DraftKings fantasy points per game in his last 20 contests with at least 25 minutes of court time.

At only $4,500, the Pelicans’ sharpshooter is the best shooting guard value available on tonight’s five-game slate.

Nikola Jokic (C, $8,600)

Compared to last year, Nikola Jokic is disappointing so far this season with only 42.1 DraftKings fantasy points per game.

However, tonight fantasy owners should see flashes of the 2018-2019 Jokic, as he gets a perfect spot against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets allowed the third most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing centers a year ago and haven’t improved. They are surrendering the fourth most this season.

In his two matchups with Brooklyn last year, Jokic looked outstanding, scoring 69.13 DraftKings fantasy points per game. He will be on his home court tonight, and Jokic is significantly better over his career at home with 4.8 more DraftKings fantasy points per game.

The Denver Nuggets will play at a faster pace than usual tonight. The Nets are the second-fastest unit in the NBA, while Denver is the seventh slowest.

In all the home games that the Nuggets saw a pace increase last season, Jokic produced 53.7 DraftKings fantasy points per game.
