DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Helper: Tuesday 11/26/19
With just two games to choose from on tonight's NBA slate, let's take a look at how to utilize the few DFS possibilities. Here are some of the top plays and sleepers on DraftKings. As always, good luck.
Luka Doncic ($11,400) -- Doncic has four straight monster double-doubles and is averaging a triple-double in November. He is scoring 32.5 points per game this month after dropping 44 points on the Rockets to extend their winning streak to five games. Doncic has moved up to second in the league points (30.6) and assists (9.8), first in PER (33.35), and 12th in rebounds (10.1). His largest challenge looms, as the Los Angeles Clippers are in town, and he might have three All-Defensive Team talents rotating on him at different times.
Louis Williams ($6,300) -- Lou Will was one point short of having his third-straight 20-point game on Sunday, and he's continued to dominate off the bench for the Clippers. Even with the Clippers stars back, he has averaged 23.4 points in November. Versus the Mavericks, he won't have to worry about defense as he won't see much of Doncic. Our model projects Williams at 22.1 points and 5.7 assists tonight.
Tim Hardaway Jr. ($5,000) -- Hardaway Jr. is coming off his best game of the season with season-highs in points (31), assists (5), field goals attempted (18), field goals made (10), and three-pointers attempted (11). He's scored 16 or more in each of the last three games, and alongside Doncic, he's been having a solid scoring streak of his own. Hardaway is a cheap value as he's posted 13.5 points per game in November and 2.5 threes at a 40 percent rate.
Bradley Beal ($9,300) -- Beal had his first game under 30 points in six contests on Sunday, but he's still averaging 30.7 points over his last 10 games. He's been the Wizards primary scoring option. He's shooting over 50 percent from the field and attempting a team-high 22 shots per game. In a short night like tonight, he is worth pairing with a star player or two. The altitude in Denver could affect Washington. Keep an eye on Isaiah Thomas ($4,600), making a return to Denver after his short stint with the Nuggets.
Kawhi Leonard ($8,800) -- The duo in L.A. is working, and Leonard is looking healthy despite all the load management early on. He's scored 50 points combined in his last two games, and the Clippers have won three in a row with him active. The load has been taken off Kawhi for scoring, but he's become more of a double-double threat because of that. Our models project Leonard as the top point scorer and shot-maker tonight with 26.8 points on 9.2 made field goals, to go with 7.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists.
Paul George ($8,200) -- PG13 has looked good in his first six games with the Clippers. He's averaging 25.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game and has scored at least 18 points in all six games. George is hitting 4.2 three-pointers per game on 10.0 attempts for a 41.7 percentage -- all career-highs. He, along with Leonard, are two of the top-three projected scorers tonight in a primetime clash with the Mavericks.
Kristaps Porzingis ($6,900) -- Porzingis has posted a double-double in five of his last six games and has topped 20 or more points in three of those games for the Mavs. His rebounding is up to 9.1 on the season after he grabbed 66 total rebounds over those six games. Our model projects him at 14.5 points and 6.5 rebounds against the Clippers, but I think he can outdo that in what could be a shootout if Doncic is on.
Paul Millsap ($5,400) -- Millsap has six straight games of 29 or more fantasy points and is coming off a season-high 23 real-life points in Denver's win over the Suns. Milsap is a low-risk, high-reward player tonight with few options to choose from. His numbers at home are much higher at 15.7 points and 6.6 rebounds on 53.7 percent shooting.
Montrezl Harrell ($6,700) -- Harrell is coming off a monster game on Sunday where he posted 34 points and 12 rebounds against the Pelicans on 13 of 18 shooting. Harrell was unstoppable and has shown flashes all season off the bench. He's averaging 36.2 fantasy points and has posted 25 or more fantasy points in four of his last six games. Harrell is projected to post 17.5 points and 7.4 rebounds tonight versus the Mavericks.
Thomas Bryant ($5,800) -- The Wizards big is shooting 59.2% from the field in November and is averaging career-highs in almost every category. Bryant is at 14.6 points and 8.8 rebounds on the season and is posting slightly better numbers on the road than at home. He will have his work cut out for him in Denver, but he's the main big for the Wizards, and someone will have to rebound in the interior.
