ARIEL EPSTEIN: Welcome to Yahoo Fantasy, I'm Ariel Epstein. I'm giving you two plays and a fade for Wednesday, November 24, in NBA DFS. Let's start with a play. I am paying up the $49 for the Golden State Warriors all-star Steph Curry. He's up against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers star Joel Embiid still not going to play until at least Saturday. That said, in the eight games without Embiid, we have seen star players go off against this team. To name a few, Julius Randle, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Fred VanVleet, Nikola Jokic, and Damian Lillard, all at over 30 points against Philly. $49, it is worth it for Steph Curry.

My value play, Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward. He's up against the Orlando Magic, who have been one of the worst defenses in basketball, allowing the second-most points per game. Hayward is a good value play, because he's $8 less than Miles Bridges and $19 less than LaMelo Ball. The Orlando Magic actually really struggle against centers. The thing is, with Charlotte, they don't really have a true starting center. I look back to how a lot of these players in Charlotte have played against teams that struggle against centers, and you've seen Hayward do pretty well. 34 fantasy points, averaging just under 17 points per game. Hayward for $24 does not eat up too much of your bankroll. Take him, $24 against the Orlando Magic.

My fade tonight, for $30, do not pay up for the Philadelphia 76ers point guard Tyrese Maxey. He's up against the best defense in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors. They've lost just over 101 points per game to their opponents. He's $2 less expensive than Devin Booker, one of the best players in basketball! No way am I going to risk $30 on Tyrese Maxey against Golden State. Fade him tonight.

To recap, put Steph Curry in your lineup for $49. I'm also playing, for a value play, Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward for $24. Fade the Philadelphia 76ers point guard Tyrese Maxey for $30. That's it from me here at Yahoo Daily Fantasy in the NBA. I'm Ariel Epstein. Good luck tonight.
