With no NBA games on Thanksgiving day, Friday brings us a full slate of games. One thing to watch for is the developing story of Okafor for the 76ers allegedly punching a guy in Boston after being insulted. While normally it is not a good idea to talk trash to a 6’11” pro athlete, Okafor could have serious repercussions. I originally had him in my lineup, but went with Monroe to play it safe.
NBA DraftKings 11/27/15 Lineup
This very balanced lineup is led by Rondo at PG, who has to be one of the most well rounded fantasy basketball players in some time. He salary is creeping up though, but he is still a good value. The biggest risk of the lineup is Mayo at 3600. If you want to take him out you will have to sacrifice somewhere else.
|PG||Rajon Rondo||Min@ Sac||9300||Rondo is playing at his old Celtics level and is a triple double machine. I like this matchup against the Twolves and should post over 40 fantasy points again.|
|SG||Andrew Wiggins||Min @Sac||7100||Another good matchup play as Sac does not have a good defense, with or without Cousins. They give up lots of points.|
|SF||Robert Covington||Phi @Hou||5100||With the 76ers playing bad, at least Covington puts up over 30 minutes and can hit multiple stat sheet categories.|
|PF||Kevin Love||Cle @Cha||8300||Love should have another good game against CHA tonight. 20 -10.|
|C||Greg Monroe||Mil @Orl||7100||Monroe is not as dynamic as the other big time centers, but he will never have a total dud game.|
|G||Dion Waiters||Det@ OKC||4400||Waiters still gets over 25 minutes and chucks up enough shots to hold him above his salary.|
|F||Jeff Green||Atl@ Mem||5100||Green starts now and his salary keeps creeping up. Still a good value play here.|
|UTIL||O.J. Mayo||Mil @Orl||3600||I ran out of money. Mayo is a huge risk, but he should play more as he gets healthier. Shoots many 3's.|
Goodluck in your NBA DFS 11-27 50/50 or tournaments!
