NBA DFS (Monday, November 11)
Welcome to SI Fantasy's NBA DFS daily plays.
We start the NBA grind this week with a six-game slate. The Pelicans and the Rockets play in the game with the highest implied total on the night. Toronto travels to L.A. to square off vs. their former teammate Kawhi Leonard. The Celtics and Mavericks play in what should be a fun game in Boston.
Be sure to check out FullTime Fantasy throughout the day to take advantage of their optimizers and cheat sheets.
PG Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets
(DraftKings:$8,800 , FanDuel:$9,900, Yahoo:$46)
The Rockets play the Pelicans tonight in the game with the highest implied total, as a matter of fact, it's one of the highest totals you will ever see, sitting at 242.5. New Orleans is very poor defensively, especially against opposing point guards who average close to 30 points per game vs. the Pelicans. Russell Westbrook shouldn't see much resistance.
SF/PF Brandon Ingram, New Orleans Pelicans
(DraftKings:$7,800 , FanDuel:$8,800, Yahoo:$39)
Brandon Ingram is playing about as good as anyone in the league to start the season. New Orleans is scheduled to play a lot of national television this season because everyone wanted to see Zion Williamson, but he hasn't played yet. Lucky for New Orleans, Ingram is showing out.

PF/C LaMarcus Aldridge, San Antonio Spurs
(DraftKings:$6,300 , FanDuel:$8,100, Yahoo:$29)
The Spurs play the Grizzlies in a game with an implied total of over 220 points. LaMarcus Aldridge is coming off a down fantasy night last time out vs. Boston, tonight is an excellent bounce-back spot for Aldridge, the Grizzlies are ranked 22nd versus opposing centers.
PF/C Derrick Favors, New Orleans Pelicans
(DraftKings:$4,700 , FanDuel:$5,300, Yahoo:$15)
Derrick Favors is coming off a 32-point fantasy night vs. the Hornets, he is priced to play and gives you a good value in a game with a very high total. Favors should take advantage of fantasy fireworks tonight in the Big Easy.
PG/SG Fred VanVleet
(DraftKings:$6,900 , FanDuel:$6,900, Yahoo:$23)
VanVleet has scored over 30 fantasy points in three of his last four games. With Kyle Lowry out, VanVleet's numbers should go up across the board.
