NBA DFS (Friday, November 8)
Welcome to SI Fantasy's NBA DFS daily plays.
Great slate for NBA DFS tonight. Eleven big games on the slate with plenty of marquee matchups and fantasy fireworks. Cavaliers vs. Wizards, Raptors vs. Pelicans, and Nets vs. Trail Blazers all have implied game totals over 230. Be sure to check out FullTime Fantasy throughout the day to take advantage of their optimizers and cheat sheets.
Let's move forward to tonight's action. Here is an early look at some of my favorite NBA DFS plays on DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo:
C Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves
(DraftKings:$10,300, FanDuel:$11,500, Yahoo:$53)
KAT is averaging 56 fantasy points per game, putting up monster double-doubles each night. He is also chipping in with assists, block, and steals. I wouldn't worry about playing time even though the Timberwolves should blow the Warriors out. Karl-Anthony Towns is very efficient with his fantasy outputs.
SG Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards
(DraftKings:$8,600, FanDuel:$9,100, Yahoo:$39)
For his last four outings, Bradley Beal is averaging 32 points a game. Next on the schedule for Beal and the Wizards is a matchup vs. the Cavaliers. Cleveland is ranked 25th vs. opposing shooting guards.
PG Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks
(DraftKings: $8,900, FanDuel:$9,300, Yahoo:$42)
Young had his worst game of the season Wednesday night vs. the Bulls; however, that game was the second night of a back-to-back. The Hawks floor general shouldn't have any problem getting back on track vs. the Kings tonight.

SG/SF Evan Fournier, Orlando Magic
(DraftKings:$4,400, FanDuel:$4,500, Yahoo:$18)
Fournier is in a good spot vs. the Grizzlies. On the season shooting guards are scoring close to 30 points a night vs. Memphis. Fournier is coming off back to back poor road performances, home cooking, and a soft Grizzlies defense will get him back on track. Fournier averages go up across the board when he plays at home.
SF Royce O'Neale, Utah Jazz
(DraftKings:$3,400 , FanDuel:$3,700, Yahoo:$10)
O'Neale is an attractive, cheap option on the slate. O'Neale doesn't do anything great, but he logs minutes. The Jazz/Bucks contest has one of the higher implied point totals on the night, so expect O'Neale to hit his fantasy value.
PF/C Jarrett Allen, Brooklyn Nets
(DraftKings: $5,000, FanDuel:$5,200, Yahoo:$16)
The Nets and the Trail Blazers have the highest implied point total on the night. Portland is on the second night of a back-to-back is terrible in every metric when it comes to stopping opposing centers. Allen just had a 30 plus point fantasy night on Tuesday in a similar situation vs. the Pelicans.
