Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks

FanPicks presents our daily fantasy basketball value picks once again. Important note: This isn’t necessarily an optimal lineup for you to use (though we do quite well), but rather Value Picks and Targets that could help put you over the top of your DFS contest. In order to win your daily fantasy basketball contest you need to maximize your spending and get the right formula for victory. As you can see I still have a healthy $100 leftover, so use this roster as a fantasy aid to assemble your dream team.

Reggie Jackson tops off our list, fittingly so because he is our highest paid player tonight. At $6500 that isn’t much to be your pinnacle, but we went with a balanced approach and no real cheapies.

Dragic and Deng should pick up where they left off last game, picking up the slack for their injured Heat bredren. Avery Bradley has five 20-point performances since January 22, and can rack up boards, assists and steals too.

Kyle Lowry is a great option tonight as well.

Jabari Parker has been rolling and is a ultra-popular in daily fantasy circles these days. He put up a season high 34.5 FP last game and should continue tonight. His price tag makes him a must-start even if he can’t repeat to that extent.

Lakers, Julius Randle scored 50.5 FP in his last two outings combined, while D’Angelo Russell recently learned he will be starting for the rest of the season. His bump in minutes should boost his confidence so his worth the gamble as he fits snuggly into the lineup.

Big-men Tristan Thompson and Ian Mahinmi were prime Value Picks. Thompson will be more heavily owned as he has been averaging 26.8 FPPG over his last three and is the bigger name, but Mahinmi has also been averaging 26 FPPG (last 2 games) and provides a nice deal at $5200.
