With just five games in the NBA Tuesday, value plays for your DFS lineups might be harder to identify. 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.
Gary Trent Jr., Raptors, $4,800
Toronto’s shooting guard is starting to find his groove. Trent Jr. has been solid recently, averaging 24.8 DKFP per game over the last three. He’s getting extended minutes in this Raptors rotation but hasn’t quite gotten back to his workload from earlier in the season. The Magic have been tough against guards in fantasy basketball but Trent Jr. should provide a solid floor for those who back him in DFS tonight.
Obi Toppin, Pacers, $4,500
Toppin played just 16 minutes in Sunday’s game against the Magic, but should be in line for more minutes Tuesday against the Hawks. The combo forward is averaging 17.9 DKFP per game and recently posted 38.5 DKFP in 37 minutes against the 76ers. This is expected to be a high-scoring contest with the total set at 251, so Toppin is worth firing up as a value play and could deliver excellent production if he plays 25+ minutes. The Hawks rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to power forwards and centers, so the matchup is also favorable.
Collin Sexton, Jazz, $4,500
Sexton remains under the $5k mark despite averaging 21.1 DKFP per game. That number has jumped up to 27.2 DKFP per game over the last four, and the Jazz guard gets tremendous usage despite averaging just under 20 minutes per game. The Lakers are a league-average team against guards, ranking 13th in fantasy points allowed. Sexton’s recent string of games is worth investing in for tonight.
