With eight games on Monday’s NBA slate, there are plenty of spots to find great value adds in DFS lineups. Unlike NFL DFS, where one pick can make or break your lineup or it’s tough to find quality low-tier value, NBA DFS differs.
In NBA DFS, you can find quality value plays $5K or under that can give you a quick 10 points off the bench, grab some rebounds, or stuff the stat sheet. We are going to provide you with three players that you need to put in your lineup.
Malik Beasley, Bucks, $4,900
Inconsistency has kept Beasley just below the $5k threshold, but the guard is capable of going off any night due to his shooting ability. He’s averaging 20.2 DKFP per game, but has topped that mark twice in the last three contests. The Wizards are a poor defensive outfit, meaning there’s a favorable matchup for the Bucks guard on tap.
Christian Braun, Nuggets, $4,500
After failing to crack 20 minutes in a five-game stretch, the Nuggets sixth man has averaged 25 minutes per game over the last three contests. He broke out for 42.3 DKFP against the Pelicans, and has seen his average jump to 18.7 DKFP per game. Denver is on the second night of a back-to-back set and could manage the workload for some starters, meaning Braun could be in line for more minutes against a soft Detroit defense.
Malaki Branham, Spurs, $4,100
Devin Vassell continues to be in and out of the lineup, which means Branham’s usage has fluctuated so far this season. Vassell is doubtful to play tonight, which means the Spurs could rely more on the young guard. Branham has averaged 19.2 DKFP per game over the last three contests and is worth backing at this price point.
