NBA In-Season Tournament knockout action continues Tuesday with two more quarterfinal games, which means a limited slate to find value plays to plug into 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.
Cam Reddish, Lakers, $4,700
There was a six-game stretch where Reddish averaged 25.53 DKFP as he got a lot of playing time, but that streak was rudely snapped with two duds. The forward got back to his usual self with 20.8 DKFP against the Rockets, and should rise to the occasion tonight against the Suns. Phoenix presents a challenging matchup but Reddish is worth backing.
Donte DiVincenzo, Knicks, $4,400
DiVincenzo hasn’t been a big factor this season for Knicks, but he might be starting to kick on of late. The guard has hit 22+ DKFP in each of his last two games, and gets a decent matchup against Milwaukee. The Bucks rank 17th in fantasy points allowed to opposing wing players, and DiVincenzo’s ability to get hot from deep presents good upside.
Josh Okogie, Suns, $4,300
The Suns forward has started getting more playing time regularly, and it’s paying off for DFS users who roster him. He should be in line for decent minutes against the Lakers again. Okogie averaged 22.08 DKFP over the last three games despite shooting just 1-6 from behind the arc. The Lakers rank 15th in fantasy points allowed to small forwards, and Okogie can really pop in DFS lineups if he gets a couple triples to fall.
