We only have five games to breakdown for NBA DFS tonight, but there is a lot to talk about here. This is looking like another one of those slates where we have more value at the bottom of the slate then the top, as our budget options look a lot better than our studs here. We know we like getting to the Grizzlies and Raptors tonight, as they both offer a lot of value with the roles some guys have been playing. We are also waiting on some big news from the Raptors in Gary Trent Jr. Our free content here will cover two priorities no matter what news comes, as well as a guy we are fading at the top end here. Our premium content will focus on more priorities across the slate as well as who we are going to if Trent remains out.
|Point Guard||S. Curry||$11,400|
Steph Curry is going to be our go to superstar option tonight at $11,400, as he really stands out on this slate. There is no Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, or Luka Doncic playing tonight so Curry is in a class of his own. He has a tough matchup against the Suns, but this game is supposed to be very competitive with a two-point spread. Curry should have to do a lot here for the Warriors, and a big night from him will make him a must have. We mentioned we have a lot of cheap value tonight, so we know it won’t be hard finding the salary for Curry.
Precious Achiuwa has not been incredibly productive in the last two games, scoring 20.25 and 17.25 FPTS respectively. However, the minutes load that Achiuwa has taken on is very enticing here as we have seen him 33 and 36 minutes in those games. Chris Boucher has been awful this season, and Khem Birch remains sidelined. We expect Achiuwa to see a ton of floor time again here, and we expect much better production if he plays over 30 minutes.
Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 11/30/21 (using DraftKings Values)
With a slate this small you shouldn’t be fading anybody if you are playing a ton of lineups. However, one guy we are not going to get to for single or a few entries is Russell Westbrook. Westbrook is way too expensive at $10,800 here, as most of the upside he has shown this season has been in opportunities without LeBron James. He is averaging under 47 FPTS a game, despite getting to play a lot of this season without James. Westbrook needs everything to go right to hit value here, as if he doesn’t triple double its unlikely, he goes for over 50.

—– Paywall —–
Anfernee Simons – PG ($4,000 DK) It is surprising that Simons is not more expensive in this spot given how productive he has been lately. Simons has went for 23.25, 37, and 31.25 FPTS respectively across his past three games, as he has been playing a lot of minutes for the Blazers. If Norman Powell remains out, Simons looks even better as he should be in for a ton of minutes.
Svi Mykhailiuk – ($3,800 DK) Trent did not practise yesterday with the Raptors, so it seems there is a good chance he is still sidelined for tonight. Mykhailiuk played 38 minutes without Trent last time, and he went for 32 FPTS. The Raptors really don’t have a lot of shooting when Trent sits, so we expect Mykhailiuk to see a ton of run in those situations. If we get the news that Trent is out here, we are going straight back to Mykhailiuk for value tonight.
Dillon Brooks – ($7,000 DK) The Grizzlies played there first game without Ja Morant last time out, and it was quite the shock that they put together a blowout win. Brooks only played 21 minutes in the blowout, but he put up a whopping 17 shot attempts in that time. Brooks has been taking ridiculous usage without Morant, so the upside is really there if it stays close. This game is not supposed to blowout against Toronto, so we really like taking a shot on Brooks here.
Jaren Jackson Jr – ($6,700 DK) Jackson had a similar situation as Brooks last game for Memphis. He only played 22 minutes in the blowout, but he got up 13 shot attempts to go for 32.3 FPTS. We expect to see some massive JJJ nights in this run without Morant, and he could smash here if things stay close with the Raptors.
Jusuf Nurkic – ($6,400 DK) The ever-inconsistent Bosnian has been showing a lot of upside lately, starting with a 60 FPT explosion a few nights ago. Nurkic went for 40 FPTS last night, and he has been dominating in his time on the floor. Nurkic has a great matchup against the Pistons tonight, so we could see him pick up a lot of stats. For Cash games we are sticking to Achiuwa at center, as Nurkic too inconsistently hits the 30-minute mark.
The main news we are waiting on as of now is if Trent is good to go for Toronto. The Raptors are already thin with OG Anunoby sidelined, so the roles look fantastic few a few guys if Trent also sits. We really like spending up for Fred VanVleet and Scottie Barnes if Trent sits, and we mentioned how we love Mykhailiuk for value. We know we are using a lot of Toronto and Memphis value in Cash tonight, and we will use Curry and Anthony Davis as stars. For tournaments we like getting to some of the high variance producers like Nurkic, Saddiq Bey, Brooks, or JJJ. Good luck tonight and keep an eye out for that Trent news.
