NBA DFS Top Plays for 11/6/23
Tyrese Haliburton – The Star on the Rise
Tyrese Haliburton has been making waves in the NBA, and his recent performance against Charlotte showcased his immense potential. In that game, he played for 37 minutes, scoring an impressive 43 points and dishing out 12 assists. Haliburton’s fantasy stock is on the rise this season, with an average of 52 fantasy points per game. His consistent double-digit assist numbers make him a reliable option with a high floor. Moreover, he faces the San Antonio Spurs, a team that ranked dead last in points allowed and defensive efficiency last season. This year, they hold the 30th position in opposing guard ranking, making it a favorable matchup for Haliburton.
In his latest DFS outing, Haliburton exploded for 63.4 FanDuel points, and he had already been consistently scoring over 40 FD points in every game this season. With the Pacers playing at home against a Spurs team ranked 9th in pace and 26th in defensive rating, this game presents an enticing fantasy environment with a high implied team total of 123 points.
Nikola Jokic – The Fantasy Giant
Nikola Jokicn has been nothing short of astonishing. The big man has been a fantasy powerhouse, averaging over 60 DraftKings points per game over the last few seasons. With a recent streak of back-to-back games scoring 69 fantasy points, his ceiling keeps rising. Jokic’s potential for even higher numbers in this game is amplified by the absence of Jamal Murray in the Denver lineup. The Pelicans have struggled to contain him in the past, with Jokic averaging 27.7 points, 15 rebounds, 11.3 assists, and 1.3 steals in their three meetings last season.
Jokic is a must-consider option whenever he takes the floor, especially when his salary is below $12,000. He has a history of performing even better when Murray is off the court, and his impressive offensive rebounding this season plays well against a Pelicans team with a weak defensive rebound rate of 65.1%.
Tyrese Maxey – A Rising Star
The Washington Wizards have been a prime target for DFS players due to their fast pace and subpar defensive rating. Enter Tyrese Maxey, who has been averaging 26.2 points over 38 minutes per game this season, translating to an impressive 44.5 fantasy points per game.
The Wizards play at the fastest pace in the NBA, and they have been giving up a significant number of fantasy points to opposing point guards. Maxey’s ability to score and generate assists makes him a natural fit for this matchup. While blowout risk might limit his fourth-quarter playing time, Maxey has consistently seen over 35 minutes of action in every game this season.
Joel Embiid – Dominating the Paint
Joel Embiid has been on a mission to silence his critics, and he’s doing so with authority. With at least 42 DraftKings points in all five games this season, he’s averaging 29.4 points, 11 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 2.2 blocks per game. Embiid’s usage rate of 36 percent leads the league, and with James Harden no longer in the lineup, he’s poised to play an even more significant role. The Wizards, with their poor defensive rating and points allowed, provide an ideal matchup for Embiid.
Washington’s defensive struggles extend to their rebounding rate, making Embiid an attractive option. Whether it’s Daniel Gafford or Mike Muscala, the Wizards’ options in the paint don’t stand a chance against the dominance of Joel Embiid.
