DraftKings Daily Plays Tuesday November 5, LeBron James

Let's get back at it with tonight's NBA DFS slate. Trae Young should make his return for the Hawks as they host the Spurs. That game has the highest implied total. The Lakers are in Chicago to take over the struggling Bulls in a nationally televised game. The night then ends in Denver where the Nuggets host the Heat.

Here is an early look at some of my favorite potential plays on DraftKings:

PG/SF LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers ($9,600)

James is coming off back to back triple-doubles and its no reason to think he won't keep that streak going vs the Bulls. On this road trip, James has had games with 62 and 92 fantasy points. Many players will pay up for Anthony Davis tonight which is never a bad idea. James could see lower ownership this evening.

PG Kemba Walker, Boston Celtics ($8,500)

Kemba Walker leads the Celtics into Cleveland to take on the pesky Cavaliers. Bad news for the Cavs, Walker is really starting to find his groove. His fantasy point production has gone up with every game. Opposing point guards are shooting 47% from the field vs the Cavaliers.

PF/C LaMarcus Aldridge, San Antonio Spurs ($6,800) 

LaMarcus Aldridge will be looking to have a bounce-back performance vs the Hawks. Aldridge scored a measly 8 points on Sunday night vs the Lakers. The Hawks have been dominated by frontcourt players this season, giving up over 12 rebounds a game to opposing power forwards.

PF/C Paul Millsap, Denver Nuggets ($4,700)

At this stage of his career, Paul Millsap is mainly good for his defensive stats. Look for him to get his offensive game going vs the Heat. Power forwards have feasted vs Miami, scoring over 27 points per game while shooting close to 50% from the field.

SF/PF Miles Bridges, Charlotte Hornets ($5,200) 

Miles Bridges has had an up and down season thus far. One game he stuffs the stat sheet, the next night he disappoints. After scoring two points on Saturday. Miles should get back to stat-stuffing vs. the Pacers, Bridges is still averaging close to 25 fantasy points per game, while his salary goes down.
