With 10 games on Wednesday’s main DFS slate, there’s plenty of spots to find quality value plays to round out 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.

Obi Toppin, Pacers, $4,600

After a small lull in production, Toppin has found his footing again with 22.9 DKFP per game in the last three contests. The Pacers forward also gets the benefit of playing in one of the league’s best offenses, making him worth adding to lineups tonight.

Norman Powell, Clippers, $5,000

The Clippers wing is coming off a big game against the Heat, putting up 33 DKFP. Powell hasn’t been the most consistent scorer, but he is getting solid minutes and is likely to see the floor in crunch time against the Suns in a crucial matchup. Phoenix ranks fifth in fantasy points allowed to opposing wings so Powell has a significant challenge here, but his current form is worth backing.

Alec Burks, Pistons, $4,300

It takes a lot to roster any Pistons player, so there can understandably be some hesitancy when it comes to playing Burks in your lineup. The wing is averaging 23.3 DKFP per game over the last four to bounce back from his recent slump, and he gets an excellent matchup tonight. The Jazz are last in fantasy points allowed to opposing wing players this season.
