We’ve got seven games on Wednesday’s NBA slate, which means we’ve got plenty of chances to find DFS value plays to round out 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.

Norman Powell, Clippers, $5,000

The Clippers wing comes in right at the $5k threshold and he’s typically a solid fantasy producer. Minutes have fluctuated a bit for Powell, who is working back through an injury he suffered against the Spurs recently. If he can return to 28+ minutes per game, he should be able to deliver excellent numbers at this price point.

Derrick Rose, Grizzlies, $4,400

With Ja Morant still suspended and Marcus Smart hurt, the Grizzlies have turned to the veteran Rose at point guard. He’s been solid so far, hitting 22+ DKFP in each of the last two games as his minutes climb. The matchup against the Jazz tonight is favorable, with Utah ranking 16th in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards.

Christian Wood, Lakers, $4,800

There’s reason to believe Wood will get extended run in this contest, largely because the Lakers could crush the Pistons and play backups in garbage time. That could lead to more minutes fo LA’s backup big man, who has shown he can deliver good results when given playing time. Back him in Wednesday’s contest as a value add.
