NBA DFS Value Plays
Welcome to another edition of our NBA DFS value plays. There were no games on this afternoon to enjoy, so instead we must withhold our excitement until at least 7 pm (est) when the first set of eight games tip off. In this edition we’re going to take a look at some serious value picks who could end up making or breaking your daily fantasy basketball contest.
- Tony Parker ($4,900)
The last time he played Sacramento he had a terrific game, shooting 11/17 and 6 assists in 30.6 minutes. At less than $5000 Parker is a solid pick.
- Zach LaVine ($4,800)
At $4800 LaVine is a very nice value. Playing big minutes the last three contests (41.4, 38.9, 38.7) means more chances for production and he shouldn’t disappoint. As long as he keeps being priced like this, lock the shooting guard into your lineup.
- Kawhi Leonard ($6,400)
Leonard has been one one of the league’s best players lately. He could easily be worth $7500-$8000, as he is averaging 33.87 fantasy points on Fanpicks over his last 4 games. He has been tremendous from beyond the three point line during that span as well, so roll out Kawhi with confidence.
- Derrick Favors ($6000)
Favors is in full health, has a nice matchup versus the Pelicans and scored just under 30 fp in just under 40 minutes the last time they played. Watch out for a big game tonight, possibly 30+ fps from the Utah power forward.
- Bobby Portis ($4,200)
As cheap as you can go for a fairly regular contributor, Portis is a solid choice. The Bulls forward been averaging 20.83 Fanpicks fantasy points over his last 3 games. That’s enough to warrant considering him for your roster, especially at that price.
- Robin Lopez ($4,800)
Knicks center Robin Lopez played 30+minutes in his of his last 4 games, averaging 23.33 fps over that span. At $4800 that’s a tremendous deal considering he has a great matchup with the Pistons today. To expect 30 fantasy points isn’t crazy, and 25 should be a given. Maybe the best value pick of the day.
