With seven games on Thursday’s NBA schedule, there’s plenty of spots to find quality DFS plays at a low price point to round out your 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.

Kyle Anderson, Timberwolves, $4,800

Anderson has been one of the most consistent fantasy players this season and while he doesn’t provide much upside, he’s unlikely to have a complete clunker. The Timberwolves forward is averaging 20.4 DKFP per game and gets a favorable matchup against the Mavericks. Dallas ranks 23rd in fantasy points allowed to opposing forwards.

Cason Wallace, Thunder, $4,500

It can be tough to justify rostering Wallace when Shai Gilgeous-Alexander gets most of the usage in the backcourt, but this Thunder rookie has been solid. He’s getting decent minutes every night, and has a strong matchup against the Kings. Wallace tallied 17.8 DKFP in 24 minutes last time against Sacramento. The Kings are 25th in fantasy points allowed to opposing shooting guards, which is Wallace’s primary position this season.

Dean Wade, Cavaliers, $4,600

Wade has emerged as a consistent rotation player for the Cavaliers of late. He is averaging 20.1 DKFP over the last six games, and managed 19.3 DKFP in 20 minutes against the Celtics Tuesday. The matchup is tough with Boston ranking seventh in fantasy points allowed to frontcourt player, but perhaps some recent familiarity will help Wade have more success tonight.
