DraftKings NBA: Lineup Picks, Advice, Analysis for Nov 13

For daily fantasy owners filling out an NBA lineup on Friday, November 13, everything is going to hinge on Russell Westbrook. The Oklahoma City Thunder electrifying point guard has been a DraftKings monster this season, averaging 25.8 points, 10.9 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals (55.8 DraftKings points) on a usage rate of 33.7. Now with Kevin Durant sidelined for at least a week, he's expected to see an even larger workload--his usage percentage without Durant last year was a staggering 40.1. Throw in the fact that he's going up against T.J. McConnell and the hapless 76ers on Friday, and he's going to be an extremely popular play. But at a whopping $11,600--$800 up from last game--you're going to have to make sacrifices throughout your entire lineup to afford him. So, do you go with Westbrook and hope the triple-double machine makes up for your other weaker positions? Or do you bench him and create a little more balance?
