FanDuel & DraftKings NBA Daily Picks: Fantasy lineup & advice 12/1/17
Kyle Lowry has been a can’t-miss option on DFS recently and he once again leads tonight’s top candidates for your consideration.
PG – Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers
Kyle Lowry has been one of the surest things in fantasy over the last few weeks. The veteran Raptors point guard put up a season-high 36 points to go with five rebounds and six assists last time out against the Charlotte Hornets. Over an 11-game stretch, he’s averaging 20.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists with nearly four 3-pointers. Those are amazing numbers. Don’t expect that run to come to an end just yet as he faces off with the Indiana Pacers tonight. Lowry just faced the fast-paced Pacers a couple of games ago and finished with a stellar line of 24 points, ten rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and five 3-pointers.
SG -Justin Holiday, Chicago Bulls vs Sacramento Kings
You never know quite what you’re going to get from Justin Holiday from game to game, but in fairness to the Bulls swingman, he’s been fairly good recently. He had another strong 16-point outing last night in the Bulls’ heartbreaking defeat to the Denver Nuggets. And in his previous game he burned the Phoenix Suns for 25 points, five assists, three blocks, two steals, and six 3s. Would it be so wild as to expect a similar line tonight against a Sacramento Kings team which has surrendered an insane amount of fantasy points to opposing shooting guards over the last five games? It’s a gamble, but it could pay off handsomely.
SF – Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Andrew Wiggins didn’t have the greatest game in his most recent outing against the Thunder as he finished with a mere 14 points. However, he was outstanding in his first visit to Oklahoma City as he delivered 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and the game-winning 3-pointer at the death to give the Timberwolves the win. Wiggins is coming off a similarly impressive line against the New Orleans Pelicans as he went off for 28 points, eight boards, five assists, and three 3-pointers. With small forward a fairly shallow position tonight, Wiggins has upside relative to his price range.
PF – LaMarcus Aldridge, San Antonio Spurs @ Memphis Grizzlies
LaMarcus Aldridge has simply been unstoppable recently. The Spurs big man followed up his outstanding fantasy outing against the Dallas Mavericks (33 points, ten rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks) with a season-high 41 points, six boards, and three 3s against the Memphis Grizzlies a few days ago. At some point, Aldridge won’t shoot a blistering 70 percent like he’s done over the last two games. But with Memphis’ morale in the gutter because of their nine-game losing skid, It’s worth riding LMA one more time.
C – Dwight Howard, Charlotte Hornets @ Miami Heat
After an understandably quiet night against the Spurs, Dwight Howard resumed normal production with 22 points and ten rebounds against the Toronto Raptors. The Hornets center has now had four 20-ten games in his last five outings, which is some vintage production from the veteran big man. Howard should have a golden opportunity to have another dominant performance tonight against the Miami Heat, who likely won’t have star big man Hassan Whiteside in the middle and will lean on rookie Bam Adebayo and the lightweight Kelly Olynyk.
