Welcome to our Fanduel NBA DFS Picks for November 17, 2018. In this article, I share my favorite Fanduel Starting 5 plays at each position.

Be sure to check the NBA starting lineups before lock. If you need help doing research, read our Fanduel NBA strategy guide and Fanduel NBA research pages for more information.


Kyrie Irving – $8,500

He’s coming off a monster 70+ FDP performance where he dominated the game in vintage Kyrie mode. He’s averaging 50 FDP over his last 3 games and is still in play here. The Jazz defend every position well except for point guards.


Jeremy Lamb – $5,400

Hornets vs Sixers is always a close game so I’ll be getting plenty of exposure to the Hornets guards who won’t have to deal with Embiid down low. Lamb has a consistent floor with plenty of upside in tournaments if this game goes to OT.


TJ Warren – $6,900

He’s playing heavy minutes as of late and will need to score a ton to keep this game close. The Suns just beat the Spurs at home so hopefully this game stays close.


Anthony Davis – $12,800

He singlehandely led the comeback VS the Knicks last night and continues to play 40+ minutes per game. He has such high upside (especially at home) so I’ll continue to plug him in as long as he produces at this level.


Nikola Vucevic – $8,800

Aaron Gordon is questionable so this really adds to Vuc’s upside tonight. The Lakers have struggled against centers and I think you can stack the Magic against the Lakers.

My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night

Indiana Pacers – Joseph, Oladipo, Evans, Turner

The Pacers get a great matchup going against the struggling Hawks at home who have allowed 118 ppg over the last 3. They will be underowned as people will see the recent game VS the heat and be scared away. The Hawks are bad so they should score with ease.

Charlotte Hornets – Walker, Lamb, Batum, Williams

The Sixers and Hornets always play close competitive games that are fantasy friendly. The Sixers are coming off a b2b and Embiid is dealing with a minor hand injury. I love the guards in this matchup who can score from outside since Joel Embiid is dominate in the paint.

Raptors – Bulls

This game should be extremely fantasy friendly since the Raptors are really struggling on defense on their recent losing streak. They are allowing 119 ppg over their 3 game losing streak and the Bulls struggle on defense as well. You can stack both sides of this game but I’d lean towards the Raptors who should pull out the win in this matchup.
