13 games will tip off across the NBA tonight and that presents plenty of opportunities for you to hit on value plays in DraftKings Daily Fantasy. 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.

Kevon Looney, Golden State Warriors, $5,000

Riding the value line for this evening is Looney, who has a date with the Thunder tonight. He’s been a rebounding machine off the bench for the Warriors and that’s been a huge reason why he’s averaging 22.3 FP in DFS. Two of his three 30+ FP games this season have come against this very Thunder team, so he’ll be a productive addition to your lineup for tonight.

Mo Wagner, Orlando Magic, $4,800

Wagner has been extremely productive off the bench for the upstart Magic this season, averaging 12.9 points and 4.3 rebounds in just roughly 20 minutes per game. That has earned DFS users 21.5 FP per game and he should be able to get a boost when facing the league’s worst team in the Pistons this evening.

Sam Hauser, Boston Celtics, $4,400

Hauser has been stepping up big for both the Celtics and DFS users in recent games. He’s gotten 22+ FP in three straight outings, including Tuesday’s game against the Pacers where he put up 15 points and six rebounds in the loss. Leave a spot open for him in your lineups tonight as the Celtics host the Knicks.
