NBA DFS Picks, 11-20-15
NBA GPP Core Targets, November 20th
I play primarily at FanDuel, but will include the Draftkings price.
Nicolas Batum, (7.0k/7.0k)
Batum may have the best match up of the night. On a night where people will spend up to play Carmelo and Leonard, save some money and make Batum your top SF. He’s only 7k and the 76ers give up THIRTY, yes 30% more points than league average to SFs. Batum has been playing quite well recently (minus 1 stinker) putting up at least 40 fantasy points in three of his last four games. His floor is high tonight and his ceiling could be in the 50’s.
Kyle Lowry, (8.6k/8.1k)
Lowry gets to face the Lakers so he gets a spot on my list! The Lakers will be a dumpster fire all year and a great team to target. Lowry is a solid play tonight, even if you want to spend up for Curry or Westbrook. There can be value found elsewhere. Lowry has a pretty high floor most nights, scoring at least 40 FP in six of his last seven games. The Lakers do not guard PGs well and Lowry could be in for a big night at a lower ownership due to his upper-middle pricing.
Derrick Favors, (8.3k/7.6k)
Who will Dirk be guarding? Well you should play that guy, and that is Favors tonight. It is an excellent match up for Favors – a player who already has a high floor and with this match up has quite the ceiling tonight as well. The Mavericks (mainly Dirk) give up 16% more points to PFs than league average. Favors could easily be staring a 50 fantasy point game in the face. Get him in your lineups.
Steph Curry, (11.0k/10.8k)
On a night that Westbrook plays it’s always hard to fade him (and if you make mulitple lineups, you should use him) but if you’re making only one GPP LU, I suggest playing Curry. He has a favorable match up against Chicago, he’s cheaper, and his ceiling is nearly as high as Westbrook’s. I assume Westy will be a bit higher owned due to recent play and Durant still being out so you could catch Curry lower owned than usual.
