DraftKings and FanDuel Fantasy Basketball Daily Picks (December 14, 21): NBA DFS Lineups


Are you ready for some Tuesday night hoops? While there were initially four games on the schedule, the NBA made the executive decision to postpone the CHI/DET game because the Bulls have been impacted by a wave of COVID. Even if it remains, there will be six teams competing on Tuesday night and that should be more than enough to be grateful for. The Raptors, Warriors and Suns will all play on the second night of the head-to-head, so it’s important to keep an eye out for injury reports to see if some teams are opting to give certain players the night away. or not, or at least lighten their workload.

With all that said, there will be some interesting storylines to watch on Tuesday such as Stephen the curry capable of breaking Ray Allen’s three-point record at Madison Square Garden. It will also be interesting to see how Kevin Durant response after dropping a 51-point burger on the Pistons over the weekend. We’re sure to have a fun night out! Now, let’s join my favorite DraftKings and FanDuel will be playing for Tuesday’s block vehicle.

This article will give you Daily fantasy basketball lineup selection for DraftKings and FanDuel on 12/14/ 21. Remember to follow trauma news as the blocking medium can change completely before locking the formation.

DraftKings and FanDuel Guards – NBA DFS Squad Selection

Stephen Curry – PG, GSW @ NYK ($11,500 DK; $10,200 FD)

It’s basically an obvious call, as it’s never a good idea to include Curry in your roster, but look for the signs: A nationally televised game at Madison Square Garden with 2 points three separates him from surpassing Ray Allen in the most three careers in NBA history. Anytime Steph is motivated to play with a little extra power is a night when I want him on my imaginary lineup. Still, he’s a much better player on FanDuel, as he’s valued at $1,300 less than his DraftKings price of $11,500.

Anfernee Simons – PG/SG, POR vs PHX ($5,600 DK; $5,800 FD)

Simons was back on Sunday after a ten-day absence with an ankle injury and started right where he left off. His 26 points mark a season-high as the Blazers turn to him early and often second choice behind Damian Lillard with CJ McCollum out with a collapsed lung. His rising role will continue on Tuesday with McCollum still absent, and the Suns are often in the middle of the group when it comes to defending opposing bodyguards this season.

Cameron Payne – PG, PHX @ POR ($4,400 DK; $4,800 FD)

Payne has played well for the Suns this season and has scored at least 22 fantasy points in three of his last five games while averaging 23 minutes per game. The sun will hit the second night in a row when traveling to Portland, so they’ll need Payne to carry the extra load. At last, Chris Paul 36 years old. Payne is a man who should have a solid background with minimal ownership, which is exactly what you want on a blocking medium like this.


Quentin Grimes – SG, NYK vs GSW ($3,800 DK; $5,200 FD)

This is a stealth game capable of taking you to glory on a three-game leaderboard. Grimes was spectacular in his first game in the NBA, with a total of 27 points and three steals in 40 minutes against the Bucks on Sunday. While Alec Burks was out and it looks like he’ll be back on Tuesday, RJ Barrett remains stuck in the league’s COVID protocols, which will lead to another role being increased and more minutes for Grimes. The masses usually stick to all the top guys on lighter vehicles, so bringing a guy like Grimes into your squad puts you in a great position to stand out.

Others to consider: Derrick Rose ($5,000 DK), Cam Thomas ($4,000 DK, $4,200 FD), Patty Mills ($5,400 DK, $5,400 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards – NBA DFS roster selection

Kevin Durant – SF/PF, BKN vs. DET ($11,600 DK, $11,100 FD)

Although Durant was the highest-valued player on both options on Tuesday, it’s hard to move him as the foundation of your squad. He has averaged just under 55 DK points in his last five games and is close to a season-high 51 in Sunday’s win over the Pistons. The only downside here is that Durant has to be the most popular player in any tournament or money game you’re in, so you’ll need to put more emphasis on building your squad. with some adversaries to balance it out.

Cameron Johnson – SF/PF, PHX@POR ($4,400 DK; $4,900 FD)

Johnson has played fantasy for sure in the last six games, scoring at least 20 FD points and 22 DK points per game in that span. Believe it or not, he is actually second in the team in PPG (15,4) while Devin Booker suffered a hamstring injury. The DBook is back on Tuesday, and Johnson will once again flirt with a 30-minute playtime. The game was also very good, as the Trail Blazers have defeated the second most DK and fourth most FD to face the minor strikers this season.

Chris Boucher – PF/C, TOR @ BKN ($4,800 DK; $5,100 FD)

I know, hearing the name Boucher probably stings a bit because he’s burned so many of us many times in the past. However, surprisingly he was so sure of Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch out of the squad. In three games, he’s racked up a total of 14 points, 6.7 rebounds, 10 FGAs and 1.3 blocks in just 24 minutes. The match against BKN was pretty fast and Boucher averaged over 1 FPT/min in the most recent encounter. It will be shocking to see him in massive possession on Tuesday, which makes him a stealth game with a huge advantage.

Others to consider: Robert Covington ($3,400 DK), Blake Griffin ($3,400 DK, $3,600 FD), Evan Fournier ($4,300 DK, $4,400 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Center – NBA DFS Squad Selection

JaVale McGee – C, PHX @ POR ($4,200 DK; $5,400 FD)

While this is basically a no-brainer on DraftKings, McGee will lose a lot of value if Deanre Ayton may return to the squad. McGee is averaging around 28 FPTS per game on both sites in eight games without Ayton, and it will be essentially a blank space ahead of the Blazers if Ayton misses again. Keep an eye out for injury reports to check Ayton’s condition before 10 p.m. ET Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.

Jusuf Nurkic – C, POR vs PHX ($7,300 DK; $6,000 FD)

As you can see, Nurkic is a great value on FanDuel, but I was okay with throwing him in my lineup on both sites on Tuesday. He has scored at least 30 FD points in five of his last seven games and will be boosted when Damian Lillard returns to facilitate the offense again. The central position dries up fairly quickly on Tuesday and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Nurkic fly under the radar. As long as he can stay out of bad trouble, he should have no problem reverting to solid value.

Others to consider: LaMarcus Aldridge ($6,900 DK, $5,900 FD), Nicolas Claxton ($3,100 DK), Mitchell Robinson ($3,600 DK, $4,400 FD)
