We hope everyone had a great thanksgiving, as we are back tonight with eleven games of NBA action to breakdown. We have another big slate here, but there are a few specific teams that really stand out for value. We know we are going to be very heavy on the Oklahoma City Thunder again, as no one has been priced up despite fantastic production in the absence of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. In our core plays here, we will get to one priority from the Thunder, as well as one stud who stands out to us in this spot. We will also go over one top end guy we are fading in this spot. In our premium content we will get to all our priorities from the Thunder, as well as some potential injury news we are waiting on.
Here’s Two Core Plays For DFS Basketball 11/26/21 (using DraftKings Values)
|Shooting Guard||L. Dort||$5,200|
|Small Forward||A. Edwards||$7,500|
A lot of guys on the Oklahoma City Thunder have seen some nice opportunities over the past few games with Gilgeous-Alexander out. None of the OKC guys have been priced up at all, and we know SGA is still out for tonight. OKC are obvious priorities and where we are starting our lineup for Cash games tonight. Lu Dort looks fantastic at $5,200 here, as he has been taking massive usage without SGA. We really liked getting to Dort at this price point when SGA was playing, so looks fantastic with him out. He will play a ton of minutes with high usage here, and he is a monster with the defensive stats.
Anthony Edwards is still too cheap tonight at $7,500, despite the 69.5 FPTS outing he had last time out. Edwards is averaging 40.8 FPTS on the season, and he has a great matchup tonight against the Charlotte Hornets. Edwards has fantastic upside, as he often goes for huge games. We always like getting to Edwards in tournaments, and he fits well into lineups when is this cheap.
Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 11/26/21 (using DraftKings Values)
Russell Westbrook has had some gigantic games this season, but most of that happened when LeBron James was sidelined. James is the primary ball handler for the Lakers when he plays so Westbrook takes a massive hit to his production. Westbrook is about as expensive as he has been all season here at $11,000, so we really need that 60 FPT game. Considering how rarely we have seen that from him when James plays, he is an easy fade for us in this spot.
Now what do you get if you sign up now for $99?
• A stud guard who is too cheap in this spot.
• A priority for us who is taking over for the Thunder.
• One superstar we will be using a lot of tonight.
• A budget big man who has been playing a massive role.
Malcolm Brogdon – PG ($7,500 DK) Brogdon is averaging 40.7 FPTS per game, and he has a great matchup tonight against Toronto. We really like using Brogdon at this price point, as he can easily crush value like we saw last time. Brogdon has a few poor productions in his log right now, but that was largely due to a back to back where he is always limited. Brogdon should play a lot of minutes if this one stays close, and he takes a ton of usage in this Indiana offence. At this price, we can fit Brogdon alongside a few superstars.
Josh Giddey – ($6,500 DK) Giddey was a priority for us last time out, and he was nice 38.25 FPTS. Giddey took on a huge role with SGA off the floor, as we saw him put up 15 shot attempts in 34 minutes. Giddey has gotten cheaper tonight, so we are looking to go right back to him here. There is upside for an even bigger performance then we have seen from Giddey here, as he is the first guy creating offense for the Thunder right now.
Franz Wagner – ($4,300 DK) Wagner looks like a really nice value here, and he looks even better if Cole Anthony remains out. Wagner is averaging 24.1 FPTS on the season right now, and his role has been great lately. He is one of our top plays in this price range, as he is too cheap if he is going to keep playing over 30 minutes in close games.
Giannis Antetokounmpo – ($12,200 DK) Antetokounmpo is once again the most expensive player available, but with the value on this slate it feels very easy to get to him. Antetokounmpo can go for well over 60 FPTS much more consistently then anyone else in the NBA, and he stands head and shoulder above the other stars on this slate.
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl – ($4,300 DK) Robinson-Earl looks like one of the best value options on tonight’s slate, as he has been playing a ton of minutes and producing at a good rate. Robinson-Early has scored over 25 FPTS in five of his past six games, and he scored over 33 FPTS in each of his past two. He is consistently playing close to 30 minutes, and with SGA out his usage has been a bit better. There is not much to debate about with a price like this, and we will be getting to a lot of Robinson-Earl here.
With this many games there are a lot of directions to take your lineup for tonight. This feels like a fantastic slate for Cash games, as we can build a core of plays that have a ton of value. We are going to use a lot of OKC in Cash, as Robinson-Earl, Giddey, and Dort are all plays we will are happy getting to. The Orlando Magic look good for Cash as well if Cole Antony sits, as Jalen Suggs will be a cash core again. For tournaments tonight we like trying to get exposure to a lot of stars tonight across a few lineups. Dort has been going drastically under owned, so he will be a priority for us in tournaments until we see that change. Good luck tonight and keep an eye out on the news, starting with what happens with Anthony.
