The Best Bang for Your Buck in NBA DFS: 11/1/21

The Best Bang for Your Buck in NBA DFS- 11:1:21

Point Guards:

  1. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander $7,800 at Los Angeles Clippers (26th)
  2. LaMelo Ball $8,500 vs. Cleveland (23rd)
  3. Trae Young $9,300 vs. Washington (19th)
  4. Ja Morant $9,500 vs. Denver (14th)
  5. Damian Lillard $9,600 at Philadelphia (11th)
  6. Fred VanVleet $8,700 at New York (13th)
  7. Dejounte Murray $9200 at Indiana (25th)
  8. Lonzo Ball $7,700 at Boston (12th)
  9. Malcolm Brogdon $8,900 vs. San Antonio (16th)
  10. DeAngelo Russell $7,600 vs. Orlando (10th)

The Assist: SGA had a rough outing his last time out. Don’t let that distract you from his emergence. In fact, it likely benefits you as other point guards are becoming more expensive. LaMelo Ball is picking up where he left off a season ago as he is averaging 20/6/6—a reasonable price at $8,500. Trae Young is coming off a poor outing on his part. Players like Trae Young don’t stay down. Expect a big performance from Young against Washington’s porous defense.

Shooting Guards:

  1. Anthony Edwards $8,200 vs. Orlando (21st)
  2. CJ McCollum $8,000 at Philadelphia (12th)
  3. Zach Levine $9,000 at Boston (26th)
  4. Jaylen Brown $8,800 vs. Chicago (16th)
  5. Bradley Beal $10,000 at Atlanta (17th)
  6. Collin Sexton $5,900 at Charlotte (16th)
  7. Derrick White $6,400 at Indiana (25th)
  8. Terry Rozier $7,000 vs. Cleveland (1st)
  9. Marcus Smart $5,700 vs. Chicago (3rd)
  10. De’Anthony Melton $5,700 vs. Denver (6th)

The Assist: In every single column we have recommended Anthony Edwards and CJ McCollum. Today’s edition is nothing different. Edwards and McCollum give you the most bang for your buck at the shooting guard position. I can’t wait to see the Zach Levine/Jaylen Brown match-up. Both players are viable options for your DFS lineup.

Small Forwards:

  1. RJ Barrett $7,000 vs. Toronto (9th)
  2. Kyle Kuzma $7,300 at Atlanta (13th)
  3. Scottie Barnes $6,800 at New York (19th)
  4. Gordon Hayward $7,600 vs. Cleveland (25th)
  5. Jayson Tatum $9,900 vs. Chicago (16th)
  6. Paul Georgie $10,700 vs. Oklahoma City (9th)
  7. Evan Fournier $6,000 vs. Toronto (9th)
  8. Will Barton $5,700 at Memphis (24th)
  9. Michael Porter Jr. $6,200 at Memphis (29th)
  10. Desmond Bane $5,300 vs. Denver (2nd)

The Assist: RJ Barrett exploded for 35 points on his last outing—stay with Barrett as he is red hot and only $7,000 in DFS. Kyle Kuzma is one of our most recommended plays daily. Kuzma continues to be a vital part of the Washington offense. Scottie Barnes is not playing like your average rookie. Barnes is coming along faster than anyone would have thought and remains a viable DFS option at only $6,800.

Power Forwards:

  1. DeMar DeRozan $8,600 at Boston (30th)
  2. Miles Bridges $7,900 vs. Cleveland (25th)
  3. Jayson Tatum $9,900 vs. Chicago (16th)
  4. Domantas Sabonis $10,100 vs. San Antonio (29th)
  5. Julius Randle $9,700 vs. Toronto (16th)
  6. Tobias Harris $9,100 vs. Portland (9th)
  7. OG Anunoby $7,300 at New York (21st)
  8. Wendell Carter Jr. $5,700 at Minnesota (29th)
  9. Jared Jackson Jr. $5,400 vs. Denver (2nd)
  10. Lauri Markkanen $5,300 at Charlotte (10th)

The Assist: DeMar DeRozan is gifted a Boston defense that is dead last at the position and at $8,600—DeRozan will fit in most any DFS lineup. Miles Bridges continues to outperform his modest price of $7,900. Jayson Tatum should feast inside and outside against a Bulls defense that has no match for his versatile skill set.


  1. Jason Collins $6,800 vs. Washington (30th)
  2. Mo Bamba $7,100 at Minnesota (29th)
  3. Nikola Jokic $11,000 at Memphis (17th)
  4. Karl-Anthony Towns vs. Orlando (16th)
  5. Joel Embiid vs. Portland (2nd)

The Assist: Jason Collins is playing fantastic ball right now. Collins draws Washington, who is dead last in the league on the interior. Play Collins with confidence at just $6,800. Mo Bamba has made his presence felt early in the season At $7,100—Mo Bamba is a steal. Nikola Jokic is the slate wrecker. Even at an expensive $11,000, you will want some shares of ‘The Joker’.
