With eight games on Tuesday’s NBA slate, there’s plenty of opportunities to find quality value plays for your 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.
Josh Richardson, Heat, $4,700
Jimmy Butler is out for tonight’s game, which means Richardson should have great value. The combo guard has played 34+ minutes in each of his last two games, averaging 25.1 DKFP. He had a game with 27.8 DKFP prior to that. Richardson only managed 12.3 DKFP in his previous outing against the Bucks, but Milwaukee is relatively soft against guards in fantasy basketball, ranking 19th in fantasy points allowed. Richardson should have a solid role in this contest.
Sam Hauser, Celtics, $4,800
Hauser should keep seeing minutes with Kristaps Porzingis expected to miss at least a week due to a calf injury. The forward got 32 minutes in his last game, going for 22 DKFP. He had a strong stretch of games before cooling off lately, but this is a great opportunity to bounce back. The Bulls rank 23rd in fantasy points allowed to small forwards, and Hauser should have enough playing time to deliver at this price point.
Josh Hart, Knicks, $4,600
Hart had a rough showing in the loss to Phoenix, but the Knicks have put him in a new role and he’s done well. Hart is averaging 23.2 DKFP per game over the last seven contests, and that includes a 10.8 DKFP showing and a 12.0 DKFP showing. The matchup is extremely favorable, as the Hornets are one of the worst defensive teams in the league and rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing forwards, which is where Hart plays now.
