The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – November 13, 2021 (11/13/21)

Please note that players on DraftKings and FanDuel have multi-position eligibility and may not always match their position between each other. In this article, we will be breaking down some of our favorite plays on the slate at their positions. Remember to keep your eye on the news as the day progresses, as NBA news frequently changes the slate.

11/13 7:00 pm Main 6 games | $400K Sat NBA SUPER Swingman ($100K to 1st) | NBA $400K Fadeaway [$100K to 1st, 2x Crowns]


Point Guard

Malcolm Brogdon ($8,600 DK, $8,400 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Malcolm Brogdon IND 8 3 5 36.6 23.6 93.4 12.6 14.5

Brogdon’s tracking stats are ELITE, and we’ve seen the production follow suit over the last two games averaging 48.25 DKP in Caris LeVert’s absence. Tonight’s matchup against an injury-riddled 76er’s team without their anchor Joel Embiid should be a favorable one. The 76ers rank 23rd in the league in Defensive Rating and are clinging to the number 1 spot in offensive rating. Caris Levert is questionable to play again, and while his status doesn’t wholly determine Brogdon’s viability, we should keep an eye on this spot as we get closer to lock. The 76ers will be without Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, and Isaiah Joe.

UPDATE: 2021-11-13 6:03:09 PM – Caris Levert is playing but it is being reported that he is on a minutes limit. My thoughts from earlier have not changed on Brogdon and Levert being limited is a positive.

Shooting Guard

Eric Bledsoe ($4,900 DK, $5,400 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Eric Bledsoe LAC 11 7 4 28.1 9.9 57.3 5.7 8.5

Bledsoe is a peripheral stats stuffer on this Clippers team, but he found his shot in the last game vs. the MIA heat, taking 16 shots and making 9 of them. If he can carry over some of that momentum into tonight’s matchup against the Timberwolves, he’ll be a great value play on this six-game slate. The Timberwolves and Clippers are both ranked inside the top 10 in pace, so we should see a fantasy-friendly game environment for everyone involved.

Small Forward

Jayson Tatum ($10,400 DK, $9,600 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Jayson Tatum BOS 12 6 6 37.6 23.8 75.2 13.9 7.9

Jaylen Brown is out once again with a hamstring injury, and we’ve seen Schoder make the most of the opportunity increasing his scoring output. However, Schroder has only exceeded value one time over the last three games, and many will chase the previous night’s performance in overtime against the Bucks, where he scored 38 actual points across 41 minutes. What does all this have to do with Tatum? Across 1457 minutes with Jaylen Brown off the floor, Tatum is a 1.35 DKPM player, and while he’s a bit overpriced, tonight I love the idea of paying up to be slightly contrarian in this spot.

Power Forward

Jaren Jackson Jr. ($6,200 DK, $6,900 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Jaren Jackson Jr. MEM 12 6 6 27.1 14.5 37.5 10.9 2.1

We have the bottom two teams in defensive rating matching up against each other tonight in New Orleans, and this should be another positive game environment to attack. Over the last five games, Triple J is averaging 17.4 points, seven rebounds, 1.4 assists, and three stocks across 28.6 minutes per game. I don’t think we’ve seen a proper ceiling performance from him yet, but tonight is a good of a spot as any.

Center

Jonas Valanciunas ($9,300 DK, $8,800 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Jonas Valanciunas NOP 13 1 12 33.7 20 74.2 23.1 5.5

Brandon Ingram is questionable again tonight with a right hip injury, and in 279 minutes with Ingram off the floor this season, JoVal is averaging 1.35 DK PPM. While this is a boost for the big man, Ingram’s status is not that important. In 437 minutes with Ingram on the floor, JoVal is still averaging an impressive 1.3 DK PPM. For all the reasons mentioned previously, this should be a great game environment for DFS production, and I like the big man to post a massive score against his old team.

UPDATE: 2021-11-13 6:03:09 PM – Brandon Ingram is also playing with a minutes limit tonight.
