DraftKings NBA DFS Goals Values ​​for November 25th

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. It was weird not having basketball games yesterday, but we’re blessed — or cursed, depending on your perspective — with a 13-game whopper of a Slate Friday. I usually like to get cute in the intro, but we don’t have time for that. Let’s get straight to that.

HOU, LAL, OKC, PHO, SA and UTA all play the first leg of a back-to-back.

DraftKings Sportsbook has six games totaling at least 230: SAC/BOS (237.5), BKN/IND (234), CHI/OKC (233.5), LAL/SA (232.5), ATL/HOU (232.5) and UTA/GS (240). There’s a two-digit favorite: PHO at 12.5 vs DET. The Pacers, Thunder, Spurs, Rockets, and Clippers are house dogs.

Guard

rivets

Stephen Curry, Warriors of the Golden State vs. Utah jazz ($10,600) – Curry has been in god mode since his rookie season? Some might argue that, and I wouldn’t say a peep. From a DKFP perspective, there have been two seasons in Curry’s illustrious career where he averaged more than 50 DKFP per game – in 2015 and 2020. So far this season he is averaging 54.6 DKFP per game – a career high. He’s surpassed 60 DKFP five times this season and surpassed 70 three times!

This playing environment should be one of the best on the slate as the Warriors are second in offensive pace while the Jazz are 12th. The teams also place 21st and 24th in the defensive standings.

De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings at Boston Celtics ($9,700) – The range of results is wide for Fox. Crazy, right? I wouldn’t be surprised if he scored 30 DKFP or 60 points. As a result, the roster will likely be tiny – especially on a giant board.

Fox achieves a 30% usage rate in the season. The Kings and Celtics are first and second in both points scored and offensive standings, respectively. Boston is 17th in defense standings while Sacramento is 25th. This game has a robust total of 239 – the second highest on the board. Surprisingly, Boston increased the FPPM by a league-leading 15.82 percentage points to point guards.

Other Options – Ja Morant ($10,700), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ($10,200), Jaylen Brown ($8,500), Anfernee Simons ($7,600), Devin Vassell ($7,400)

value

Jose Alvarado, Pelicans from New Orleans at Memphis Grizzlies ($3,800) – Alvarado has become a staple of the Pelicans rotation due to his pesky defenses. He’s also no slouch on the offensive side of the ball and has played significant minutes so far this season. He uses an average of 0.96 DKFP per minute and has exceeded the score expectations 60% of the time. He has made three starts and produced 24.75, 22.25 and 26.25 DKFP in these competitions. He’s gone over 20 DKFP in five of the last six games.

Other options – Cory Joseph ($3,300), Quentin Grimes ($3,500), Collin Sexton ($4,600), Austin Reaves ($4,700), Shake Milton ($6,000)


Forward

rivets

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics vs. Sacramento Kings ($10,800) – It’s a pace-up spot for Boston as the Kings are playing at the fifth-fastest pace. Sacramento also ranks 25th in defensive standings, up 5.35 percentage points in power forwards FPPM. Tatum has only one game under 40 DKFP in the season and has gone over 60 three times.

Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies vs. New Orleans Pelicans ($6,800) – Jackson underwent surgery on his right foot during the offseason. There were so many unknowns as to when he would be active again and what he would look like. Well, in the last two games, he’s put up 41.75 and 52 DKFP in just 28 and 25 minutes, respectively! He has scored over 20 points in every contest while being a defensive champion, producing four steals and eight blocks. Yes, the blind in the land of the unknown can now see.

Other options – Jaylen Brown ($8,500), DeMar DeRozan ($8,100), Lauri Markkanen ($7,900), Ben Simmons ($7,200), Bojan Bogdanovic ($6,900), Mikal Bridges ($6,900), Andrew Wiggins ($6,400)

value

Austin Reaves, Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs ($4,700) – They call him “Hillbilly Kobe” for a reason! Reaves has taken time to settle into a role, but he’s exceeded expectations in points 90% of the time this season, posting at least 20 DKFP with a peak of 33 in six straight games LeBron James ($10,400) off the pitch and James is a questionable for today. Regardless, Reaves should continue to play over 30 minutes per contest whether James is playing or not because he’s such a good liaison.

Other Options – Vlatko Cancar ($3,000 – if Michael Porter Jr. is out), Oshae Brissett ($3,400), Quentin Grimes ($3,500), AJ Griffin ($4,000), Patrick Williams ($4,200)


center

rivets

Nikola Jokic, Denver nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers ($11,400) – Jokic wasn’t the Jokic we expected. He’s scored less than 50 DKFP five times this season and has only exceeded scoring expectations 30% of the time. He failed to reach 50 DKFP eleven times last season. Jokic has missed a few games due to health and safety protocols but it looks like he’s starting to bounce back. He’s played 60, 25 and 65 DKFP in the last two games, narrowly missing a triple-double in both games. If he’s right, Jokic has the highest floor and ceiling combination on the slate.

Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs ($10,900) — Davis has been on the go lately, posting 84.75, 64, 70.5, and 63.5 DKFP in his last four games. He had five steals and five blocks, as well as 37 points and 21 rebounds in his last contest. When he’s healthy, Davis is one of the best fantasy players out there, and he’s currently healthy. It’s worth noting, however, that his usage rate increases by five percentage points when James is off the pitch, so a slight thing could happen when James returns on Friday.

Other Options – Myles Turner ($7,400), Jakob Poeltl ($7,300), Ben Simmons ($7,200), Jaren Jackson Jr. ($6,800), Clint Capela ($6,700)

value

Usman Garuba, Houston missiles vs. Atlanta Hawks ($3,700) – Alperen Sengun is unlikely to play on Friday, so Garuba should play significant minutes. During the season, he’s topped scoring expectations 80% of the time and gone over 20 DKFP three times, with a high of 34.75 – despite not exceeding 25 minutes in a game.

Other options – Jabari Smith Jr. ($5,400), Al Horford ($5,600)
