NBA DFS Picks for December 6 – Sports Illustrated

After a quiet night with only three games Tuesday, the NBA is back in full force with 10 games on the schedule Wednesday. With several star players dealing with injuries, it’s going to leave others with an added opportunity to provide value for your DFS entry.

Positions Point Guard

Kemba Walker, vs. Warriors (FD: $8,200, DK: $7,800)
Projected Points: FD: 37.28 DK: 38.63

Rivers has seen extended playing time as a result of all of the injuries, and is averaging a career-high 34 minutes per game. He’s settled into his new role nicely, averaging 19.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.7 three-pointers over his last six games. Based on his current role, Rivers is a nice option for
