With just four games on Saturday’s NBA slate, finding bargain DFS plays can be a bit more challenging. 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.

John Collins, Jazz, $4,800

It’s interesting to see the Jazz power forward under the $5k threshold, since he’s been playing well of late. Collins is averaging 25.1 DKFP per game over the last five, and gets to play a 76ers team that just took a beating at the hands of the Knicks. Philadelphia is a league-average side against opposing bigs when it comes to fantasy points allowed, so Collins can be added to lineups as a solid value option.

Obi Toppin, Pacers, $4,500

Getting a part of this high-powered offense is always worth the risk, and Toppin comes in as a rotation regular. He only managed 18.8 DKFP in Friday’s game but the game script likely led to him being rested a bit ahead of tonight’s contest against the Celtics. Look for Toppin to have a bigger role in this game and make good on his price point.

Josh Hart, Knicks, $4,500

In the last four games, Hart has tallied 26.7 DKFP per game and is coming off a colossal 40.3 DKFP performance Friday against the 76ers. The wing has been doing well when it comes to rebounding, snagging double-digit boards in three of the last four games. The Wizards have been a disaster defensively, and rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing forwards. Look for Hart to have another solid game Saturday.
