There are eight games on Friday’s main DFS slate in the NBA, which means plenty of chances to find excellent value plays. 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.
Harrison Barnes, Kings, $5,000
Even with the Kings struggling to kick things into high gear offensively, Barnes has gotten going recently. He’s hit 24+ DKFP in each of the last three games and even with difficult defensive matchup, he’s worth backing against the Timberwolves in Friday’s contest. Minnesota is stingy overall, but ranks 20th in fantasy points allowed to forwards this season.
Obi Toppin, Pacers, $4,900
Indiana’s offense has been flying this season and although the Pistons have ceded the fewest fantasy points to frontcourt players this season, there’s enough volume to back Toppin here. He’s hit 34+ DKFP in two of the last four games, and is averaging 25.78 DKFP over the last five contests. Back Toppin to keep up his good form in a division contest.
Malik Beasley, Bucks, $4,800
A lot of bettors might not be happy about Beasley’s late triple Wednesday against Boston, but the Bucks shooting guard has been on fire of late. He’s averaging 26.72 DKFP in the last five games and gets an excellent matchup against the Wizards, who are among the worst defensive teams in the league. Washington ranks 25th in fantasy points allowed to shooting guards this season.
