With Jaylen Brown (hamstring) out for the Boston Celtics, Jayson Tatum has had to take on an even larger scoring load than norma. After struggling early in the season, he’s finally starting to find his rhythm. Tatum has 71 points and 20 rebounds in his last two games, while shooting 25-of-48 from the floor. Anybody who has been riding him in their NBA DFS lineups has had a big leg up over the competition. Tatum and the Celtics will be back in action on Saturday night after beating the Lakers on Friday, but with Brown nearing a potential return, should you continue to play Tatum?

The NBA DFS player pool is loaded on Saturday with stars like Jimmy Butler, Giannis Antetokounmpo, LaMelo Ball and Karl-Anthony Towns all scheduled to be in their respective lineups. But with only two games (Hornets vs. Hawks and Jazz vs. Kings) featuring a total over 220, who has the best matchups and are there any NBA DFS stacks worth deploying? Before making any NBA DFS picks, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure

McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He’s also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. 

This allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.

On Friday, McClure listed Nets guard Patty Mills as one of his top NBA DFS picks on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Mills had 22 points, three assists, two rebound, a steal and a block to return over 9x on DraftKings and nearly 9x on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Saturday, November 20 NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Saturday, November 20

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Saturday is Grizzlies forward Kyle Anderson at $4,600 on DraftKings and $5,300 on FanDuel. After averaging career highs in points (12.7 ppg), rebounds (5.7 rpg) and assists (3.6 apg) a season ago as a starter in Memphis, Anderson has moved into a bench role this year. With his minutes down, his numbers are expectedly down across the board.

However, Anderson has been shooting the ball well of late and that confidence, combined with more minutes because of a shortened Memphis rotation, creates some upside. Anderson is 14 for 24 in his last three games and the Timberwolves gave up 125 to the Grizzlies in an overtime loss earlier this month. Anderson had 15 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in that game.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Magic guard Jalen Suggs at $3,800 on DraftKings and $4,800 on FanDuel. The former Gonzaga star was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Like most rookies in this class, it’s been a struggle at times as he adjusts to the speed and athleticism of the association.

However, Suggs is coming off his second 20-point game of the season on Friday night and he’s seemingly found his stroke from the outside, going 7 for 13 from the 3-point line in his last two games. With Jrue Holiday focused on Cole Anthony most of the night, Suggs could see a lot of Grayson Allen on Saturday and Allen has a 113.5 defensive rating this season.

How to set NBA DFS lineups for Saturday, November 20

McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Saturday because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
