It’s somewhat of a busy night in NBA action as 11 games will be taking place, all tipping off between 7:00p.m. and 10:00p.m. ET. With that many teams on the floor tonight, it might be a little daunting for some to pick the best lineup possible.
That being said, it is a great time to give you some value plays for your DFS contest. Unlike NFL DFS, where one pick can make or break your lineup or it’s tough to find quality low-tier value.
In NBA DFS, you can find quality value plays under $5K that can give you a quick 10 points off the bench, grab some rebounds, or stuff the stat sheet. It does not matter if you are playing a 50/50 or Double Up contest, we are going to provide you with three players that you need to put in your lineup.
Royce O’Neale, Utah Jazz, $4,600
The Jazz are taking on the Nets tonight at home, who are fresh off a 116-112 win over the Trail Blazers just last night. O’Neale, who’s a regular starter for the Jazz, will be all but guaranteed to grab fantasy points in the double digits. He’s guaranteed to go for upwards of 30 minutes, and has only scored less than 17.25 DKFP once in his last 10 games. He’s not someone who’s going to score an insane amount of points, but his defense and rebounding skills are where he really shines. He’s also lethal from downtown when he’s having an “on” night, so at such a low price tag, it makes him an easy choice to save some money in your lineup.
Kevin Huerter, Atlanta Hawks, $4,900
Huerter has been seeing 30+ minutes per game while grabbing an impressive near-30 DKFP almost every outing over his last 10 games. He’s seen a recent small dip in performance, scoring 14.25 and 16.5 DKFP in his last two games, but while the red-hot Hawks head out to take on the 13th-place Sacramento Kings tonight, Huerter is sure to rack up double digits for you while not eating into your salary cap too much.
Naz Reid, Minnesota Timberwolves, $3,700
If you’re looking to spend even less money on a player who can get you 10+ in any given game, Naz Reid is a solid option. Sure the Timberwolves are having a rough year, but even in their losses, Reid is playing 12-15 minutes and racking up double digit DKFP numbers every time. Over his last 10 games, he’s averaged 18.43 DKFP per game, averaging roughly 9.8 PPG and 3.5 RPG. He even drains a three-pointer or two once in a while. The Wolves will play host to the Mavericks tonight, but regardless of the outcome, you can count on Reid to churn out some relatively decent numbers for you for the price.
