Even though we’ve got just six games on Wednesday’s NBA slate, there’s some solid bargain options to round out DFS lineups available. 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.

Immanuel Quickley, Knicks, $4,800

After a dud against the Bucks in a 130-111 loss, Quickley responded two days later with 20 points off the bench in a 129-122 win over Milwaukee. The Knicks sixth man now gets to face a Thunder squad that struggles against guards on the second night of a back-to-back set. Oklahoma City ranks 21st in fantasy points allowed to opposing guards, setting Quickley up for success tonight.

Gary Trent Jr., Raptors, $4,900

Trent Jr. had a bit of an underwhelming showing with just 17 DKFP against the Jazz, considering he averaged 31.3 DKFP in the three games prior to that. The Raptors get an excellent matchup against the Wizards, who rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing guards. Trent Jr. is capable of heating up from behind the arc, which gives him good upside for this contest at this price point.

Eric Gordon, Suns, $4,800

Gordon has cooled off since a strong stretch at the beginning of the month, possibly because he’s been battling injuries. The guard appears to be on the right side of his hip issue as he heads into this matchup against his former team. Gordon is getting big minutes and is averaging 23.6 DKFP per game on the season, so he’s a solid filler option even though his numbers have been down of late.
