After some light days, the NBA is back with 11 games on hand for Wednesday, November 6. This should provide ample options for your daily fantasy 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.

Robert Covington, 76ers, $4,700

Covington comes off the bench for the 76ers, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have value. He plays an average of 18.4 minutes per game with 5.4 points, 4.6 points and 1.5 steals per game. Covington plays his role well and averages 16.3 fantasy points per game, which could increase in this game as the Washington Wizards allow the most DFS points per game to opposing small forwards.

Shake Milton, Timberwolves, $4,000

Milton has played in 19 games this season. He is averaging 16.2 minutes, 5.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 11.8 fantasy points per game. The San Antonio Spurs allow the most DFS points per game to opposing points guards, giving Milton a lot of upside.

Alec Burks, Pistons, $4,600

Burks has a good matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies. They allow the seventh-most DFS points per game to opposing shooting guards. Burks averages 19.5 minutes per game with 10.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists. He averages 18.8 points per game off the bench, which is a fairly high clip for someone who is a second or third-string player.
