There are 11 games on Wednesday’s action-packed NBA schedule, which means 22 teams stock the NBA DFS player pool with a lot of talent to consider. James Harden, who leads the NBA in scoring with 33 points per game, leads the Rockets in action against Malcolm Brogdon and the Pacers at 7 p.m. ET. And Giannis Antetokounmpo, who torched the Pistons for 43 points Monday, gets Detroit again at home at 8 p.m. ET.
Are Harden or Antetokounmpo the best NBA DFS picks for NBA DFS tournaments, 50-50s or cash games on daily Fantasy basketball sites like DraftKings and FanDuel?

Top NBA DFS picks for Wednesday, Jan. 6
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for his Wednesday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Kings guard De’Aaron Fox at $8,200 on DraftKings and $7,800 on FanDuel. Fox continues his torrid start to the 2020-21 NBA season, averaging 20.6 points, 6.3 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 33.9 minutes per game. That includes an 18-point, seven-assist, four-rebound, three-steal effort in a 31-point blowout over Golden State on Monday.
Fox is scoring 4.3 points per game over his 16.3 ppg career average in his fourth NBA season, and is just a fraction behind his 2019-20 breakout season. Fox’s balanced output has been great for NBA DFS owners, as he has averaged over 42 daily Fantasy basketball points on DraftKings over the last four games. Fox and the Kings get the visiting Bulls on Wednesday, a team that is giving up 119.6 points per game this season.
Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy also includes rostering Clippers guard Lou Williams at $4,400 on DraftKings and $4,000 on FanDuel. The 16-year veteran is averaging 10.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game this season. Williams went for 15 points, two rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes off the bench against the Spurs on Tuesday.
Although Williams’ scoring total is down from his career 14.4 ppg mark, that is more a product of his minutes being down compared to his 24.8 MPG average this season — as he is shooting 44.8 percent from the floor and 40 percent from deep. Williams and the Clippers get a delicious matchup against the Warriors on Wednesday, a team that is dead last in the NBA in scoring defense by allowing 121.1 points per game and a team that Williams torched for 21.5 points per game last season.
