Wednesday, November 18 is here and so is the big weekday event with 10 NBA games on the schedule. Let’s see if James Harden can bounce back from his terrible performance the other night. I do not have him in my lineup again though. The very expensive Russell Westbrook is playing as well, but it is hard to justify that kind of salary with other good PG playing as well.
I went with Lillard at point who I think is a lock for 40 fantasy points in this one. With Cousins at PF, that also gives me another guy with a very high floor. I took a chance on Hollis-Jefferson, assuming he will get 30 minutes like he did last game. I also like Waiters with Durant still out. At his price point he gets enough shots to warrant a start.
NBA DraftKings 11/18 Lineup
|PG||Damian Lillard||Por @Hou||8800||Lillard is the affordable version of Westbrook. The extra salary can be used to get another solid player to help cash in those 50/50 contests.|
|SG||R. Hollis-Jef...||Bkn @Cha||3400||If he starts book him. If not decide carefully… I wont be around to update.|
|SF||Rudy Gay||Sac @Atl||6900||A good player who is made great by a big guy like Cousins down low.|
|PF||DeMarcus Cousins||Sac @Atl||10300||The beat of the west, Cousins may be a bit of a hot head, but he is one of the best power forwards in the NBA.|
|C||Jahlil Okafor||Ind@ Phi||7200||Okafor gets a ton of shots for this price point. Good rebounder too. Terrible team.|
|G||Dion Waiters||NO@ OKC||4600||Waiters never saw a shot he didn’t like, so without KD he can fire away.|
|F||C.J. Miles||Ind @Phi||4300||Miles gets around 25 minutes a game can hopefully around that many fantasy points as well.|
|UTIL||Avery Bradley||Dal@ Bos||4500||Bradley is a great 6th man and could start on many teams.|
Good luck in your NBA DFS 11-18-15 cash game 50/50 or tournaments!
