The heavy slate of NBA action looks to deliver some excitement for daily fantasy owners to cash in on. That includes FanDuel owners looking to capitalize on the 12 game NBA lineup that includes some of the top players in the NBA. The list of stars includes Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, LeBron James, James Harden and Kevin Durant to name a few.
Along with the top fantasy options we also have a ton of lower tier options to round out the rest of our fantasy lineup. One of those players we have been keeping a close eye on is the New York Knicks rookie is Kristaps Porzingis at the small forward position.
Porzingis has not only produced in the rebound column but also on the scoring end for the Knicks. Over his last four games, Porzingis has scored 20, 24, 7 and 29 points while grabbing 14, 14, 6 and 11 rebounds. The rookie also added seven blocks just two games ago for his fantasy owners.
Now as we look to build the rest of our FanDuel lineup we weighed a few options including whether or not to use Westbrook. While Westbrook is the top fantasy option tonight we also expect him to be used in a heavy load of fantasy lineups. In the end we elected to stay away from the Thunders point guard and spread out the money after elected to go with Anthony Davis.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Wednesday November 25th, 2015.
PG – Isaiah Thomas ($7,600): It is hard not to go with Thomas against a very bad Philadelphia 76ers team. That being said, Thomas had put together six straight games with at least 31 fantasy points before registering just 18 in his last outing.
PG – Raymond Felton ($3,500): Felton is our FanDuel Bargain of the night as Devin Harris is expected to get the night off. This means Felton and fellow guard J.J. Barea should see an increase in playing time tonight.
SG – Eric Bledsoe ($8,500): As we looked to build our lineup tonight we looked to the top over/under lines according to Vegas. One of those games features the Phoenix Suns taking on the New Orleans Pelicans making Bledsoe one of our top fantasy options.
SG – Evan Fournier ($5,900): If you elect to go cheaper at this spot you we also like J.J. Redick for a nice savings to upgrade Hollis Thompson. If not Fournier has at least 25 fantasy points in seven of his last ten games including five 30 plus fantasy performances.
SF – Hollis Thompson ($3,800): So we decided to take a big time gamble with Thompson tonight for the 76ers. If we can get the typical 16-18 fantasy point game it should work but a 20 plus fantasy performance is what we are expecting from him tonight.
SF – Otto Porter ($5,800): While Porter might not be the first or second option in the Washington Wizards lineup he has been consistent for most of the season. That includes for his fantasy owners with three 30 plus fantasy outings over his last ten games as well as four other games with at least 23 fantasy points.
PF – Kristaps Porzingis ($6,700): We are going to continue to ride the rookie tonight as the Knicks travel to take on the Orlando Magic. Porzingis has put together big time fantasy games in three of the last four games he has played.
PF – Anthony Davis ($11,100): As we did with Bledsoe above we needed to take a least one player from tonights Pelican/Suns contest slated to have an over/under of 212 points. We could
C – Jahlil Okafor ($6,600): We considered going very cheap at the center position tonight to use the extra cap space to build around other players. In the end we like Okafors matchup tonight against the Boston Celtics add in his back to back strong fantasy performances makes him a solid start. A few really cheap bargains we like tonight include Steven Adams for OKC and Kelly Olynyk.
