Rudy Gay, SF/PF, San Antonio Spurs

DraftKings Price: $5,900

While $5,900 may seem like a rather high salary for a "value" play, it's not when you consider what Rudy Gay has done when facing the Los Angeles Lakers this year.

The 13-year vet has already faced the Lakers three times this season (including a meeting this past Wednesday), so we have a very good idea of what he's capable of tonight. Gay could do no wrong in their most recent meeting, dropping 31 points and grabbing 7 boards.

He's scored at least 30 DraftKings points in each of his three games against the Lakers, topping 43 DraftKings points in each of his past two.

His 13.6 points per game may not jump off the stat page to you, but his 6.7 boards are the second-best mark of his career, and his 50.0% three-point percentage--the best mark of his career--is third-best in the NBA this year.

We have him projected for a flat 30.0 DraftKings points tonight, which equates to a value of just under 5.1 DraftKings points per $1,000. In a game with a total set at 226--second highest on the slate--there will be ample opportunity to exceed that.
