NBA DFS Lakers vs. Picks today for the Suns – November 22

The Phoenix Suns host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, and DraftKings and FanDuel have an NBA DFS contest and single-game contests for this Western Conference Fall. The slate closes at 10:00 PM EDT, and below we’ll highlight the top players in terms of both production and value.

Best NBA DFS Picks

Anthony Davis, PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers ($11.2K DraftKings, $16.0K FanDuel)

Anthony Davis has been able to put up great stats despite his team’s struggles this year, and he’s only missed one game so far. When healthy, Davis is a top 10 player in the league, and with star LeBron James out with an injury, expect Davis to be the Lakers’ offense again. He’s averaging monster numbers when James isn’t in the lineup, as he’s averaged 31.6 points and 14.0 rebounds in five contests, as in those games. Defensively, Davis ranks second in the league with 1.9 blocks per game, and his 1.4 steals are also high. Those numbers are crucial for fantasy purposes, and there are few players better than Davis in fantasy, so put him in your lineup tonight for guaranteed production.

Cameron Payne, PG/SG, Phoenix Suns (DraftKings $k, FanDuel $13.5k)

Cameron Payne is out with starting point guard and future hall of famer Chris Paul. Payne has averaged 20.3 points, 6.3 assists and 3.7 rebounds for Phoenix since moving into the starting lineup. On Sunday, he had a great performance against the Knicks, finishing with 21 points, seven boards and nine dimes. He’s seeing more than 33 minutes per game as a starter, and with the Suns down Paul as well as forward Cameron Johnson, Payne should enjoy a high usage rate again tonight and be a great source of assists against the 5-10 Lakers.

Devin Booker, SG, Phoenix Suns ($9.8K DraftKings, $15.5K FanDuel)

Payne is the main beneficiary of Chris Paul’s absence, but Devin Booker is amazing with or without Paul. While Paul is still recovering from injury, Booker is taking on more playmaking duties, and since the start of last year, the Kentucky product has averaged 7.1 assists in the 17 games Paul has been sidelined. Booker is averaging 27.6 points per game overall this year and should see plenty of touches again tonight.

Other DFS options to consider: Torrey Craig, SG/SF, Phoenix Suns (DraftKings $9.8K, FanDuel $15.5K), Austin Reaves, SF/SG, Los Angeles Lakers (DraftKings $4.8K, FanDuel $9.5K)
