DraftKings Daily NBA Bargains (Friday November 29th)
When putting together your daily fantasy lineup, bargain plays are essential to coming out on top and putting cash in your pocket.
It would be great if we could plug in all of our favorite stars every week, but unless you’re playing with an unlimited budget, that would be pretty much impossible. If you use our weekly bargain plays, though, you’ll be afforded the extra cash to get more fantasy studs in your lineup. Here are the top bargains for Friday, November 29th.
*Prices via DraftKings
PG: Aaron Brooks vs. Brooklyn ($3,000)
Brooks has been an important piece of the Rockets’ recently, and with Jeremy Lin sidelined up to two weeks, he will be receive a major bump in minutes. Over his past three games, Brooks’ shot has been red-hot, as he’s gone 11-17 from beyond the arc in 22 minutes per game. His price hasn’t been updated to reflect his new spot in the rotation though, making him a major bargain against a struggling Nets’ squad.
SG: Lance Stephenson vs. Washington ($5,700)
Stephenson is one of the most versatile two guards in the NBA, as he’s able to drive to the basket and set up teammates with relative ease. He’s averaging over six rebounds and nearly five assists per game to go along with solid scoring, and that kind of all-around production has led to some giant box scores this season. Stephenson also has a favorable matchup against the Wizards, who are allowing opponents to convert on over 47 percent of their field goals.
SF: Gordon Hayward vs. Phoenix ($6,900)
Hayward started the season on an absolute tear, but he’s struggled lately through a bout of bad shooting. Hayward’s only shot better than 40 percent from the field once in his last four games, but he’s retained his fantasy value with great assists, steals and blocks numbers. The third-year forward is bound to break out of his shooting slump sooner rather than later, and as long as he’s chipping in other categories he’s still one of the most valuable small forwards in fantasy.
PF: Terrence Jones vs. Brooklyn ($5,700)
Jones has been a natural fit in the Rockets’ up-tempo offense, and his role as a stretch-four is a valuable one from a fantasy perspective. Over his last seven starts, Jones is averaging 14.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.1 threes per game, making him one of the more complete assets in fantasy. The Nets have been one of the worst defensive team’s in the NBA and will struggle to keep up with the Rockets’ pace, so there should be plenty of opportunities for Jones to get his hands on the basketball.
C: Andre Drummond vs. LAL ($7,100)
Drummond has transformed himself into one of the most consistent double-double threats in fantasy basketball. He’s recorded at least 10 points and 10 boards in nine of his last ten games, and he’s also provided a plethora of steals and blocks. In redraft formats Drummond’s fantasy value is severely damaged by his free throw deficiencies (22.6 percent), but in daily leagues that’s not a concern.
