The NBA Rundown – FanDuel & DraftKings NBA DFS Picks – November 14, 2021 (11/14/21)

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.

DK 11/14 7:00 pm Main 5 games | FD 11/14 6:00 pm Main 6 games


Point Guard

C.J. McCollum ($7,600 DK, $7,500 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
CJ McCollum POR 13 6 7 34.8 20.7 60.8 7.5 8.9

Damian Lillard is out tonight with an abdominal injury. In 2,582 possessions since January 2020, McCollum averages 1.21 DK PPM with Lillard off the floor. While traveling into the Denver altitude to face the second-ranked defense in the league isn’t a picture-perfect situation, McCollum is too cheap for his upside in this spot.

 

Stephen Curry ($11,400 DK, $10,300 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Stephen Curry GSW 12 11 1 33.7 28.4 78.3 9.6 11

The Warriors have returned to prominence early this season, but it is worth noting they have had one of the most favorable schedules in the league thus far. As the schedule gets a little more challenging, we’ll get to see what they are made of in the coming weeks. If you are a person into narratives, Steph has his homecoming game tonight in Charlotte. However, you shouldn’t need any reason beyond tonight’s matchup with one of the worst defenses in the league.

 

 

Shooting Guard

Josh Giddey ($6,400 DK, $5,700 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Josh Giddey OKC 11 5 6 28.9 9.5 67.4 10.5 11.1

The SG position is a little thin tonight, especially in the mid-tier price range. The stat-stuffing OKC rookie is as good of an option as any. Giddey is all over the floor, impacting the game in all areas, as you can tell by his tracking data. His shot has not been falling over the last few games, but that trend will reverse sooner rather than later.

Small Forward

Miles Bridges ($7,800 DK, $8,300 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Miles Bridges CHA 13 7 6 36.2 22.4 60.2 12.8 6.2

Bridges surprised everyone with his leap on the offensive end at the beginning of the season, and 13 games in, there are no signs of him slowing down. In his last matchup with the Warriors, Bridges dropped 32 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished two assists, and accumulated four stocks.

Power Forward

Frank Kaminsky ($5,200 DK, $5,700 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Frank Kaminsky PHX 7 6 1 22 12.3 36.6 9.4 3.3

Deandre Ayton is doubtful to play tonight and is expected to return on 11/15. Over the last four games without Ayton in the rotation, Kaminsky has averaged 16.25 points, six rebounds, two assists, and 1.75 stocks across 27.5 minutes per game. While he’s certainly not the safest play in the world, he has the upside to win you a tournament.

 

John Collins ($6,600 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
John Collins ATL 13 4 9 31.8 16.3 55.5 15.3 2.8

FD included the 6:oopm game in their primary slate offering tonight, so we’ll touch on Collins. Deandre Hunter is out tonight with a wrist injury, and Bogdan Bogdanovic is currently questionable to play with right ankle soreness. The news will be essential to monitor for other reasons but doesn’t have much of an impact on Collins’s outlook tonight. In his last game, Collins took 22 shots and grabbed nine rebounds vs. DEN.

Center

Nikola Jokic ($11,600 DK, $11,000 FD)

PLAYER TEAM GP W L MIN PTS TOUCHES REB CHANCES POTENTIAL AST
Nikola Jokic DEN 11 7 4 32.1 25.1 95.7 21.4 11.8

No brainer play alert. Michael Porter Jr. is out again tonight with a back injury, and the Joker becomes even more of a one-person show. In 1096 possessions without Jamal Murray & MPJ on the floor since 12-11-2021, Jokic averages an insane 1.80 DK PPM.
