The all day eating festival we call Thanksgiving is in the books but we still have plenty to be thankful for. One of those things is a twelve game NBA Lineup for daily fantasy owners to cash in on FanDuel with. This includes the $175k Friday NBA Slam that pays out a top prize of $15k to first place.
Now with that heavy NBA lineup we have a ton of great fantasy options to build from including both Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry. Along with those two the list includes players like Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins (Monitor Injury Status), James Harden, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
All of these options sound great to fill our FanDuel lineup with but the big problem is all of these stars carry salaries of at least $10,100. That leaves us with one big problem and that is finding a few solid Fantasy Sleepers. Here our a few of our sleepers for tonight’s action.
PG – T.J. McConnell ($5,000): McConnell presents us with a solid fantasy option tonight against the Houston Rockets with just a $5k salary. If the Philadelphia 76ers have a chance to win this game they will need McConnell to put up a big game to keep up with James Harden and the Rockets.
PF – Nene Hilario ($4,400): Tonight the Washington Wizards travel to Boston to take on the Celtics in a contest that is slated with the second highest over/under of the night. This should provide a ton of scoring options for Hilario who has three 20 plus fantasy performances over his last five games and two 31 plus fantasy performances over his last seven games.
Here are a few of the other Fantasy Sleeper options we like tonight including T.J. Warren, Steven Adams, Justise Winslow and Jeremy Lamb.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Friday November 27th, 2015.
PG – Stephen Curry ($10,900): We debated using Russell Westbrook as well as teaming up the two. In the end Curry is $700 cheaper in salary and has a matchup with a Phoenix Suns team that likes to move the ball up and down the court.
PG – T.J. McConnell ($5,000): Now we could have gone a few directions with our second point guard position including Westbrook and Chris Paul. In the end we expect McConnell to step up tonight as the 76ers will need a few big games to keep up with the Rockets.
SG – James Harden ($10,400): Over the past few weeks we have seen multiple players put together big time fantasy games against the 76ers. That should continue tonight with Harden who has put together back to back 54 point fantasy performances as well as well as 78 point performance over his last four games.
SG – Jeremy Lamb ($4,600): Lamb is a solid fantasy option tonight as the Charlotte Hornets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Hornets guard has scored 20 fantasy points in eight of his last ten games including a 31.9 point performance in his last game.
SF – Omri Casspi ($4,100): As we look to build our lineups we look at players who get a bunch of playing time. One of those options is Casspi who has registered at least 31 minutes in three of his last four games. In that stretch, the Sacramento Kings small forward posted at least 23 fantasy points in each of those games with at least 30 minutes.
SF – Paul George ($9,900): George has been playing out of his mind of late including a huge 40 point game against the Wizards in his last outing. Along with the scoring, George has delivered at least 35 fantasy points in each of his last ten games including five games with over 40 fantasy points. If you need to go cheaper we suggest looking at either Trevor Ariza or Tobias Harris.
PF – Nene Hilario ($4,400): Hilario as we said up above is a great Fantasy Bargain tonight at the power forward position. Tonight’s Wizards/Celtics game should see a ton of scoring opportunities as well as a chance to put some rebounds in the stat sheets.
PF – Ryan Anderson ($6,700): We could have gone a few directions here including going with another fantasy bargain. In the end, Anderson has been solid of late posting at least 34 fantasy points in four of his last five games.
C – Kostas Koufos ($4,000): At this moment we are considering Koufos as a solid fantasy option tonight. That being said if, Demarcus Cousins is active we suggest going cheaper at the small forward position and going with Marcin Gortat for the Wizards.
