NBA DFS Picks, 11-27-15
NBA FanDuel Cash Core, November 27th
James Harden – SG – 10.4k
With a full slate there are plenty of super stars to choose from but I will be having the most exposure to Harden. For his floor and ceiling I feel he is the best value tonight amongst the upper priced players considering SG is often times an awful position for DFS. The Rockets are projected to score 104 points tonight against Philly and Harden’s usage is one of the highest in the league at 33%. Even in a blow out Harden should see 30 minutes which is plenty of time for him to fill up the stat sheet.
Kawhi Leonard – SF – 8.8k
I have Leonard projected as the 2nd highest SF tonight (slightly) behind LBJ, and Leonard is $1300 less. He has a solid match up against Denver and you can expect Kawhi to get 35+ minutes. Last time out against Denver he put up 40 FP in 35 minutes and I’m expecting at least that tonight. He’s been extremely consistent this seaosn, averaging 39 FP/Gm and 41 over his L5. You can feel good about him hitting value against the Nuggets.
Isaiah Thomas – PG – 7.3k
The Celtics should be in a competitive, high scoring game this evening and they are projected to score 107 points – one of the higher totals on the night. The Celtics have been one of the faster paced teams this season and they have an advantageous match up against the Wizards. Thomas has a usage of 31% and with some extra possession tonight he could really fill it up. He’s been getting 33 minutes/gm this season and if he can get that again tonight he could push for 40+ FP. For his price he is a great play tonight.
Robert Covington – SF – 5.7k
In what should be a fairly high scoring game (at least for Houston) Philly will have to keep up and the Rockets have been awful defending SF this season. Covington has seen a nice boost in minutes recently, as well as starting time, and he’s taking advantage. He has three straight games of hitting at least 5x value and he should get plenty of run tonight against Houston. He also doesn’t have to score to create fantasy points as he can be a solid rebounder and generate steals. For 5.7k he has a nice floor and a decent ceiling for your cash lineups.
