NBA DFS Wednesday, November 7th

20 NBA teams will be on the floor on Wednesday night, which means there is a lot of options out there for fantasy players. To save you a little bit of time with your picks, I have chosen a slate of players who should make an impact and score fantasy points on November 7th. Those are:


Dennis Schroder, Point Guard, Oklahoma City Thunder

Dennis Schroder is one of the best backup point guards in the NBA. He is averaging 15.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.6 assists in 28 minutes per game. Since Russell Westbrook got injured against the Pelicans on Monday, Dennis will see an increase in minutes in Cleveland, which should boost his fantasy output.

I wrote about how Cleveland has a porous defense and how opposing guards are a safe fantasy pick against them. That should be true on Wednesday as well; unless OKC blows them out and the starters play less than 30 min. However, I feel it will be a relatively competitive game because OKC didn't play that well without Westbrook at the beginning of the season. That's why Schroder should be an excellent pick for a cheap pay of 5500$, both on DraftKings and Fanduel.


Andre Drummond, Center, Detroit Pistons

Andre Drummond is a rebounding machine, and that's why he has been a great fantasy pick for years. Even if he doesn't have a good scoring night, he grabs 16.3 boards on average this year, and that's why he is a good pick against Orlando, who is a below average rebounding team. Drummond had a monster 25 point and 24 rebound performance on Monday against Miami, and I feel he is due for another strong game against the Magic.


Enes Kanter, Center, New York Knicks

Similar to Drummond, Kanter had a huge game on Monday with 23 points and 24 rebounds. He is averaging 15.3 points and 11.7 rebounds, along with 2.5 assists and is a solid value for his price of 6200$ on DK and 6700$ on FD.

Kanter has been unhappy coming off the bench so you can count on the fact he will be motivated to repeat this output against the Hawks, and that his teammates will feed him the ball. Atlanta is also coming off a back-to-back game the night before in Charlotte, which is always a factor to consider, and Kanter and the other Knicks should have an advantage with more time to rest.


Josh Richardson, Small Forward, Miami Heat

Richardson has been the best player for the Miami Heat, averaging 21.4/4.4/2.9 along with a steal and a block per game. He will have a tall task measuring up against Demar DeRozan and will want to prove himself against an All-star player.

I don't expect a highly efficient night from Richardson, but he should shoot a lot and still put fantasy points on the board. If you want to go with a cheaper option from the Heat, Dwyane Wade might be a nice pick as he is averaging 19 points in his last three games.


Jamal Murray, Point Guard, Denver Nuggets

Murray has been tearing it up lately! 48 point performance against Boston on Monday was his career high, and he should be extremely confident coming into Wednesday game against Memphis. He probably won't score 48 again, and Memphis is a good defensive team, but he is a pretty safe bet to produce more than 30 fantasy points on Wednesday. It will cost you 6900$ on DK and 7300$ on FD.

And if you are looking for a cheap option to close your lineup, Shelvin Mack from Memphis has been playing well off the bench, and his salary is 4200$ on DK and 4500$ on FD.


Wesley Matthews, Shooting Guard, Dallas Mavericks

Wes Matthews was once one of the best shooting guards of the league, but then he tore his Achilles and hasn't been the same player. He is still a solid rotation player, and this year he is averaging 17.6 points per game. The Mavericks are playing in Utah, and because Donovan Mitchell may not be playing, Matthews' defensive output won't be needed as much.

He might be a nice pickup for a small salary of 5100$ on DK and 5500$ on FD. If you want to spend more at this position, you can always pick his teammate Luka Doncic who is playing great and is the no.1 contender for the Rookie of the year.


Brandon Ingram, Small Forward, Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers are playing at home against Minnesota on Wednesday, and it's a chance for them to revenge the loss they suffered from the Wolves on October 29th. Ingram had his best game of the season that day, scoring 24 points, five rebounds, two assists, and three blocks.

Given the fact that the Lakers are a high scoring team, and that the Wolves are a mess this year, it should be a nice opportunity for Ingram to put up big numbers against Minnesota again. 


Buddy Hield, Shooting Guard, Sacramento Kings

Buddy Hield was a centerpiece of the trade that sent Boogie Cousins away from Sacramento. Ridiculed at first, Buddy is making that move looking at least a little bit better with his performances this year. He is putting up pretty solid numbers, averaging 19.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Sacramento is playing well as a team overall, but the visiting team on Wednesday are the Raptors, who have the best record in the league at the moment. The Raptors might slow Hield down, especially if Kawhi plays (missed last two games). However, Hield has been pretty consistent this year, especially with his shooting and he still could score over 20, as he did in five of his last six games.
