NBA DFS Plays for Wednesday, 11/20: Bam Bam!
Even though Kevin Love was ruled out on Monday, I was very pleased with that article. We got some great performances from many of our value plays, with guys like Aaron Holiday, Dario Saric and Norman Powell all having great games. We’re going to look build off of that momentum here, so let’s get into our 11/20 NBA DFS picks!

11/20 NBA DFS Point Guards
Eric Bledsoe, MIL at ATL
DK ($7,100) FD ($7,300)
You have no idea how badly I wanted to recommend Luka Doncic against the pitiful Warriors defense but I vowed to keep all these players below $10,000, so let’s go with Bledsoe. This dude has been special ever since Khris Middleton went down and that’s no surprise when you see that he has a 27 percent usage rate with him off the floor. It shows in his production too, with Bled averaging 37 DK points over his last nine games. That’s bad news for an Atlanta defense who allows the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing PGs this season.
Ky Bowman, GS at DAL
DK ($4,400) FD ($5,300)
With D’Angelo Russell and Stephen Curry both out, Bowman should recapture the starting point guard job. In the four games without those guys, Bowman is playing 35 minutes a game while scoring at least 31 DK points in three of the four. That’s really all you can ask for from such a cheap player and he’s really the only point guard left on this roster. Dallas is certainly not a defense we’re worried about either, as Doncic’s defense is nowhere close to his elite offense.
11/20 NBA DFS Shooting Guards
DeMar DeRozan, SAN at WSH
DK ($8,100) FD ($8,000)
DeRozan has quietly been a fantasy beast over recent weeks and it’s a wonder why he’s still priced so reasonably. In the 13 games since the opener, DD has scored at least 28 DK points in all of them while averaging 36.6 fantasy points per game. He’s been even better recently, averaging 41 DraftKings points over his last four games. What we really like is that he’s posting a 26 percent usage rate in that span while taking 17 shots a game. The best part about using him is this matchup though, facing a Wizards team who ranks dead-last in total defense.
Spencer Dinwiddie, BRK vs. CHA
DK ($7,200) FD ($7,300)
With Kyrie Irving potentially missing this game, Dinwiddie is a fantastic value. So far this season with Irving and Caris LeVert off the floor, Dinwiddie is leading Brooklyn with a 39.7 percent usage rate while averaging 1.2 DK points per minute. Those are the rates of an All-Star and it’s no surprise when you see that Spencer is averaging 36.4 DK points over his last six games. Getting to face the Hornets is simply a bonus, with Charlotte ranked 27th in defensive efficiency.
11/20 NBA DFS Small Forwards
Will Barton. DEN vs. HOU
DK ($6,300) FD ($6,700)
Barton has quietly been one of the Nuggets best players this season and he’s probably the best per-dollar value on this roster. Outside of a game where Barton was dealing with an abductor injury, he actually has at least 30 DK points in eight of his first nine games. A floor like that is brilliant for a player in this price range, particularly one in such a tasty matchup. In fact, Houston ranks third in pace while surrendering the most fantasy points to opposing small forwards.
Norman Powell, TOR vs. ORL
DK ($5,500) FD ($4,900)
Powell was in this article on Monday and it’s about time that these DFS sites raise his price to where it should be. Since taking over starting small forward duties five games ago, Powell is averaging 27.5 DraftKings points per game. Averaging 11.4 field goal attempts and 30 minutes a game will do that to your fantasy production, as he’s clearly being leaned on with Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka both injured. He’s absolutely rolling the last two games too, scoring over 33 fantasy points per outing.
11/20 NBA DFS Power Forwards
Robert Covington, MIN vs. UTA
DK ($5,700) FD ($6,100)
Trusting this guy has been very annoying this season but recent results are hopefully a sign of things to come. The biggest thing with Covington is his minutes and playing at least 32 minutes in back-to-back games is an extremely encouraging sign. That’s led to 30 DK points in both games while averaging 29 fantasy points over his last 10 games in total. Getting more than a fantasy point-per minute is huge and he’s proven to be that type of player throughout his career. That’s why we have to jump on him with the increase in playing time because he’s way too cheap on both of these sites.
Eric Paschall, GS at DAL
DK ($5,900) FD ($5,900)
With Golden State missing half of their roster, Paschall has developed into their best player. That’s truly evident when you look at his recent form, with Paschall averaging 27.5 DraftKings points over his last 10 games. Most importantly, Paschall leads this current roster with a 25 percent usage rate while taking about 14 shots per game with all of these guys off the floor. That monster usage proves that he’s the centerpiece right now and it’s hard to fade the centerpiece of an offense at this sort of price.
11/20 NBA DFS Centers
Bam Adebayo, MIA vs. CLE
DK ($8,300) FD ($8,100)
This dude is an absolute stud. Not only does he have at least 27 DK points in all 12 games played this season, he’s also averaging 40 DraftKings points per game. It’s really no surprise when you see Adebayo’s stat-stuffing ways, with the big man averaging 13.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. That’s truly horrifying for a Cleveland defense who allows the third-most fantasy points to opposing centers.
Brook Lopez, MIL at ATL
DK ($5,900) FD ($6,200)
Lopez got off to a dreadful start this season but we have to be ecstatic about his last few games. In fact, Lopez is averaging 48.3 DraftKings points over his last two outings which is gargantuan production from a player in this price range. It’s really all about playing time with this guy, as Lopez is averaging 33 DK points per game in the eight fixtures where he’s played at least 28 minutes. That’s especially tempting against Atlanta, with the Hawks surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing centers this season.
