NBA DFS (Tuesday, November 12)
Welcome to another edition of SI Fantasy's NBA DFS daily plays.
We have an eight-game NBA slate to get after tonight, so there should be plenty of fantasy fireworks. The Nets continue their road trip with a stop in Utah. The Suns have a measuring stick game as they host the Lakers, the Kings and the Trail Blazers play in the game with the highest implied point total.

C Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets
DraftKings:$8,300, FanDuel:$9,000, Yahoo:$39
Stat stuffer Nikola Jokic is starting to round into form after a somewhat slow start to the season. Jokic is known for filling up the box score on a nightly basis. When the Nuggets play at home, which they are tonight, so watch his numbers tick up across the board.
PF/C Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers
DraftKings:$8,400, FanDuel:$9,500, Yahoo:$39
Domantas Sabonis has been dominate for the Pacers. He has had at least 14 rebounds in four straight games, he is scoring 20 points per game, and his assists are going up. Sabonis has scored over 40 fantasy points in each of his last six games. He should go for 50 fantasy points tonight.

SG/SF Jimmy Butler, Miami Heat
DraftKings:$7,800, FanDuel:$9,400, Yahoo:$39
Jimmy Butler has taken over the scoring load for the Miami Heat, and he should look to get more buckets tonight as the Heat could be short-handed. Jimmy Buckets is a primetime play for me.
PG Mike Conley, Utah Jazz
DraftKings:$6,200, FanDuel:$6,800, Yahoo:$23
Mike Conley has gone over 20 points in each of his last two games and is in an excellent spot to do so again as the Nets are 27th in the league vs. opposing point guards.
PG/SG RJ Barrett, New York Knicks
DraftKings:$5,900, FanDuel:$6,900, Yahoo: $24
The last time the Knicks played the Bulls rookie R.J. Barrett scored 19 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, the Bulls are just as bad as the Knicks, so this game should be hotly contested, allowing Barrett to score more fantasy points.
C Dewayne Dedmon, Sacramento Kings
DraftKings:$3,400, FanDuel:$3,900, Yahoo:$17
Dedmon will give it a go this evening versus the Trail Blazers. The Blazers have been downright dreadful guarding centers this season. Opposing bigs are shooting well over 50% vs. Portland. Dedmon won't win you the night but is a nice source of salary relief. Tonight's Blazers game has an implied total of over 220 points.
