FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Saturday (11/23)

Nov 23, 2019

Trae Young is inside the top ten in scoring average at 25.6 points per game.

Welcome to the Saturday edition of FanDuel NBA lineup advice. Once again I’ll be focusing on the main slate, which features nine matchups tonight. Only four players check in above $10,000 salary, while another six will cost you $9,000 or more. In an interesting scheduling quirk, ten teams are playing in the second game of back to backs tonight, making it more important than ever to keep up on new updates as tipoff approaches.

Point Guard

Trae Young (PG – ATL): $9,600 vs. TOR
There’s a good reason that Young is the most expensive point guard on the slate. Atlanta’s second-year point guard comes with one of the highest ceilings in fantasy basketball. He’s inside the top ten in scoring average at 25.6 points per game, while also averaging the third-most assists in the NBA with 8.6 per game. He’s coming off of a relatively down night in a blowout loss Friday, which combined with his high salary, could keep his ownership down as he looks to bounce back against the Raptors tonight.   

Others to consider:

Collin Sexton (PG – CLE): $5,500 vs. Portland
Sexton gets a solid matchup against Portland, who gives up the most FD points to point guards on the season. While rookie Darius Garland is also listed at point guard for the Cavs, Sexton has a team-high 25.9% usage rate and comes with more scoring upside than his rookie teammate.
