Friday’s article went very well and we’re actually riding many of the same players here. For some reason, DraftKings is keeping these players’ prices way too low and we need to capitalize on them until they inevitably rise. Without further ado, let’s get into our 11/25 NBA DFS plays!

11/25 NBA DFS Point Guards
Damian Lillard, POR at CHI
DK ($8,900) FD ($9,500)
This price tag makes no sense at all. I always try to keep my recommendations below $10,000 and there’s no reason why Lillard remains below that threshold. Not only has he scored at least 37 DK points in 14 of his 15 games this season, Lillard is also averaging 49.2 fantasy points per game. Trae Young is $900 more and is averaging 1.6 fewer fantasy points, proving just how bizarre this price tag is. Getting to face the Bulls is simply a bonus, as this should remain a close game with Chicago posting a subpar defense based on efficiency ratings.
Jeff Teague, MIN at ATL
DK ($6,300) FD ($6,100)
Teague is always someone that I consider because these DFS sites continue to undervalue him. We’re talking about a guy who’s averaging 30 DK points per game, which is already approaching 5X value. His recent form is impressive too, scoring at least 26 DK points in six-straight games while averaging 31.3 fantasy points per game in that span. That’s the player we’ve seen throughout his career and we have to like that he faces an Atlanta team who ranks 26th in points allowed while allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing point guards.
11/25 NBA DFS Shooting Guards
Spencer Dinwiddie, BRK at CLE
DK ($7,600) FD ($7,800)
With Kyrie Irving out for another two games, expect Dinwiddie to be in here at least one more time. The reason for that is because Dinwiddie has a usage rate approaching 40 percent with Irving and Caris LeVert both off the floor. That has led to him scoring at least 35 DK points in all five of his starts, averaging over 40 fantasy points per game in that span. You can’t fade that sort of usage and production below $8,000 and we’re certainly not concerned with a Cleveland team who allows the most fantasy points in the league to opposing point guards, which is Dinwiddie’s true position right now despite his DFS designation.
DeAndre’ Bembry, ATL vs. MIN
DK ($5,300) FD ($4,600)
Bembry has been inserted into the starting lineup and it’s done wonders for his fantasy value. In those two starts, Bembry is averaging 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 3.0 steals across 33.5 minutes a game. That equates to 38.4 DK points, which is simply absurd from someone priced so cheaply. Bembry has always been able to stuff the stat sheet at ease and playing 30-plus minutes is huge for a fantasy producer like this. Facing Minnesota is the icing on the cake, allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards this season.
11/25 NBA DFS Small Forwards
Taurean Prince, BRK at CLE
DK ($5,200) FD ($5,400)
Prince is in the same boat as Dinwiddie. While Dinwiddie has been awesome in the absence of Irving, Prince has taken over the LeVert role. After accruing 14 points, 11 rebounds and five assists on Sunday, Prince is now averaging 26 DK points per game for the season. That’s the guy we loved in Atlanta and it’s hard to overlook that he’s playing over 30 minutes a game since both those guys went down. The increase in role and optimal price tag makes him particularly intriguing against a Cleveland team who ranks 24th in defensive efficiency.
Wes Iwundu, ORL at DET
DK ($3,600) FD ($3,500)
This one isn’t going to involve many stats but Iwundu is easily one of the best per-dollar plays on the slate. Almost every player who’s in this price range doesn’t even get off the bench but Iwundu is projected to play 25-30 minutes after playing 27 minutes on Saturday. The huge jump in playing time is because Orlando is without Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic, garnering Iwundu a start at SF. Facing Detroit isn’t too shabby of a matchup either, ranked 21st in defensive efficiency while allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing small forwards this season.
11/25 NBA DFS Power Forwards
Domantas Sabonis, IND vs. MEM
DK ($8,100) FD ($8,900)
After a couple of cheap small forwards, let’s grab a stud at power forward. Sabonis is just that, as he’s truly developed into one of the best big men in the game. That’s evident when you see that he has at least 35 DK points in all but one fixture this season, averaging 43 fantasy points per game for the year. That absurd production is really intriguing against a Memphis club who ranks 23rd in defensive rating, 27th in points allowed and 27th in OPRK against PFs.
Wendell Carter, CHI vs. POR
DK ($6,500) FD ($7,000)
Carter’s price tag has remained way too low on DraftKings all season long and I truly don’t understand why. Not only is he averaging 30 fantasy points per game, but WC has also scored at least 33 DK points in five of his last eight games. Averaging 12.9 points and 11 rebounds per game in that span emphasizes just how much he’s improved and we have to love that he faces a struggling Portland frontcourt. In fact, the Trail Blazers rank 25th in total defense while surrendering the most fantasy points in the NBA to opposing power forwards.
11/25 NBA DFS Centers
Bam Adebayo, MIA vs. CHA
DK ($7,100) FD ($8,800)
Adebayo is a regular in my articles and he’s going to remain in them until he’s above $8,000 on both sites. What’s bizarre is that DraftKings lowered his price, despite Bam being one of the best centers in the league this season. The price drop is probably because of a dud in a 27-point blowout on Saturday but that’s the outlier stat line. Prior to that, Adebayo had at least 33 DK points in seven-straight, averaging more than 40 fantasy points per game in that span. That’s terrifying news for a Hornets club who owns a 28th OPRK against opposing centers this season.
Hassan Whiteside, POR at CHI
DK ($6,100) FD ($8,100)
Whiteside is frustrating to watch at times but he produces for fantasy and that’s all we really care about. Over his last 10 games, Whiteside has a 27-point floor while averaging 37 DraftKings points per game in that span. That’s already north of 6X value at this unbelievable DK price and we absolutely want to exploit a Chicago frontcourt who allows the second-most fantasy points to opposing centers this season.
