4 Players To Help Build Your Best NBA DraftKings Lineup for November 5, 2019
What’s up, everybody?
Tonight, we have six games to attack.
Below are four players to help build your best NBA DraftKings lineup.
As always, if you need any further lineup advice, feel free to contact me on Twitter.
Top NBA DFS Play:
LeBron James (PG/SF, $9,600)
LeBron James is an immense value at his price tag tonight. He is coming off back-to-back triple-doubles, scoring 77.4 DraftKings fantasy points per game over that span.
With Rajon Rondo yet to play this season due to a calf injury, James has excelled as the Los Angeles Lakers’ starting point guard. Through the first six games, he is leading the team with a massive 52.8% assist percentage and 33.8% usage rate.
Rondo remains out tonight, and James should continue to dominate against the Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls rank 18th in defensive efficiency, and the Lakers have the second-highest implied team total of the slate (111.25).
This may be one of the last times James is priced under $10,000, and he needs to be a priority tonight.
Value NBA DFS Plays:
Jabari Parker (SF/PF, $5,000)
The Atlanta Hawks’ starting power forward, John Collins, is suspended for 25 games after violating the NBA’s drug policy. This instantly opens the door for Jabari Parker to start at power forward and play a big role offensively for the Hawks.
He produced just under one DraftKings fantasy point per minute this season, and with Collins’s 33 minutes per game gone from the Hawks’ rotation, Parker should play at least 25 minutes per night moving forward.
Parker’s matchup tonight against the San Antonio Spurs is average (15th in defensive efficiency). However, Parker is at home (two more DraftKings fantasy points per game in his career) and is just too cheap for the workload he will command with Collins absent.
Alex Len (C, $4,100)
Alex Len also benefits from John Collins’s suspension. Even though he started at power forward, Collins logged most of his minutes at center in small-ball lineups. This creates a huge void in the Atlanta Hawks’ frontcourt.
Len is one of the only players left on the Hawks’ roster that is a true center. Behind him, the Hawks have Bruno Ferando and Damian Jones, two players who have yet to exceed 20 minutes in a game this season.
Len will be asked to play over 25 minutes tonight in order to matchup with LaMarcus Aldridge.
In the 26 games that Collins missed last year, Len generated 26.3 DraftKings fantasy points per game. Additionally, in the eight games that Atlanta was without Collins and Dwayne Dedmon, Len scored 30 DraftKings fantasy points per game in 28 minutes.
He has been underwhelming this season with only 15 DraftKings fantasy points per game, but with a lack of viable cheap options tonight, Len is one of the better punt plays to take a gamble on.
Jeremy Lamb (SG/SF, $6,100)
Jeremy Lamb fit in perfectly with the Indiana Pacers, averaging 33.2 DraftKings fantasy points per game this season. He has over 30 DraftKings fantasy points in three straight games and should hit that number again tonight against the Charlotte Hornets.
The Hornets are the best overall matchup on tonight’s slate, ranking as the fourth-worst rated defense in the league.
Lamb recently left the Hornets’ club in free agency this past summer, and even though he is a very quiet guy, he should have some extra motivation against his former team.
Lamb is one of the best point-per-dollar values of the night and can be used with confidence in all formats.
