NBA DFS Primer: Tuesday (11/23)

Nov 23, 2021
Russell Westbrook

Monday was blowout city in the NBA! It felt like every game was decided by the third quarter, causing chaos for DFS. Yours truly had a pretty good night with my Kings-Sixers stack, and it has me ready to keep rolling here!

After a monstrous slate on Monday, we’re down to just four games here. The layout of the slate is the most exciting thing. Most people never even take into consideration late-swap on these sites, but this is the perfect slate to capitalize on it. The two early games will be over before the two late games start, and it’ll be critical to make the right moves. That’s why I prefer to stack the late games here, so let’s go ahead and get into it!

Russell Westbrook (PG – LAL): $10,500 DraftKings, $9,900 FanDuel
Westbrook has struggled with his shot all season, but he continues to provide fantasy value. Since a dud in the opener, Russ is averaging 20 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game. That’s not the MVP-Westbrook we used to know and love, but we expect those averages to be his floor here with King James sitting. Not to mention, the Knicks rank 19th in defensive efficiency ratings.
