We’ve got a nine-game main slate on DraftKings to kick off the weekend. Here, we’ll be taking a look at some value plays to help you save salary in your DFS lineup on DraftKings. Here’s the full rundown of value plays for Saturday.
NBA DFS value picks for Saturday, February 1st
Seth Curry, DAL vs. ATL, $5,000
Cam Reddish, ATL @ DAL, $4,200
Damian Jones/Bruno Fernando, ATL @ DAL, $4,000/$3,900
Dennis Smith Jr., NY @ IND, $3,100
Dewayne Dedmon, SAC vs. LAL, $4,900
— Luka Doncic’s ankle injury leaves the Dallas Mavericks with a need for more scoring, and Seth Curry can provide that. He remains one of the league’s best when it comes to shooting the long ball and is just over 40% from beyond the arc this year. He tallied 25 DKFP on 11 shots against the Houston Rockets in his last outing, and his shot volume increase heading into the All-Star break.
— The Atlanta Hawks are banged up all over. Wing depth has been depleted by injuries to De’Andre Hunter ($4,600) and DeAndre Bembry ($3,000), which means Reddish will get the lion’s share of the minutes at small forward. He’s been a double-digit scorer in six straight games and shouldn’t be challenged for minutes by any if his teammates. Atlanta’s frontcourt will be without Alex Len ($3,800) and Bruno Fernando is listed as probable. Fernando and Damian Jones both notched double-doubles in their last outings, and who starts is a toss up at this point. Whoever gets the could
— Dennis Smith Jr. and Allonzo Trier ($3,000) are the only active point guards the New York Knicks will have for their matchup with the Indiana Pacers. However, Trier hasn’t reached double-digits in DKFP in over a month. This is Smith’s chance to assert himself and play some heavy minutes.
— Although Dewayne Dedmon had been generally been disappointment as a starter while Richaun Holmes ($5,800) and Marvin Bagley III are out, his last performance was one of his best of the year. Dedmon notched 11 points, 11 boards, an assists, three blocks and four steals against the Los Angeles Clippers. Whether he can keep that up remains to be seen, but I’m optimistic about him being more productive.
