The 2022-23 NBA season is in full swing. If you need some advice on your FanDuel fantasy basketball lineup for tonight's slate, The Duel is here to help.
Here are three players to target and two to avoid in Thursday, 11/10, NBA DFS action.
NBA DFS Picks Tonight 11/10/2022
Joel Embiid Fantasy
Target Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers ($10,500): Joel Embiid returned from his three-game absence with a strong outing, posting 33 points, 10 rebounds and 52.5 fantasy points against the Phoenix Suns on Monday. He's been on fire as a scorer as of late, averaging 31.0 PPG over his last five outings. He's in a great spot to keep things up on Thursday against the Atlanta Hawks, who rank just outside the top 10 in most points per game allowed. Atlanta also gives up the fifth-most RPG to opponents, giving the big man huge double-double potential in this one.
Bam Adebayo Fantasy
Target Bam Adebayo, C/PF, Sacramento Kings ($7,700): Bam Adebayo was quieter than usual last time out, but he should get back on track tonight. Prior to posting 31.5 fantasy points on Nov. 7, Adebayo was averaging 42.6 FanDuel PPG this year while doing a bit of everything (21.2 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 4.2 APG) for the Miami Heat. Now he'll face a Charlotte Hornets frontcourt of Mason Plumlee and P.J. Washington that's no threat to his offensive production. Charlotte's also allowing the fourth-most RPG, so it'd be no surprise to see Adebayo have a huge night on the boards.
Drew Eubanks Fantasy
Target Drew Eubanks, C/PF, Portland Trail Blazers ($3,500): Drew Eubanks is a very appealing minimum-salary target if Jusuf Nurkic sits again. Nurkic was sidelined on Wednesday due to an adductor injury, and Eubanks stepped up in his absence, posting 14 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks and 32.6 fantasy points in 22 minutes. He's positioned to return similar value against the New Orleans Pelicans, who have struggled on the glass (sixth-most RPG allowed) in the early going.
Zion Williamson Fantasy
Avoid Zion Williamson, PF, New Orleans Pelicans ($8,800): Zion Williamson's been tamer than usual lately, posting fewer than 26 fantasy points in two of his last four games. He could disappoint at this price tag tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers own one of the league's best defenses (ninth-best defensive rating) so far, and they've been even stronger on the boards (fourth-fewest RPG allowed). Williamson may struggle as a scorer and rebounder in this one.
Kristaps Porzingis Fantasy
Avoid Kristaps Porzingis, C/PF, Washington Wizards ($8,000): Kristaps Porzingis has cooled down after his hot start. He's averaging just 14.3 PPG over his last three contests, and his rebounding numbers (7.3 RPG) haven't been enough to make up for the scoring dip. His struggles shooting the ball (34.2 FG%) have been apparent, especially from deep (25.0%). Now he draws a Dallas Mavericks defense that ranks seventh in defensive rating and holds opponents to the third-fewest RPG. Their steady rotation of lengthy bigs is a major hurdle in the way of a big game for Porzingis.
