3 NBA DraftKings Value Plays to Target on 2/28/19
Bam Adebayo, PF/C, Miami Heat
DraftKings Price: $4,000
Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside was ruled out for last night's game against the Golden State Warriors. No matter, Bam Adebayo stepped right into the role, finishing with 11 points, 10 boards, 4 assists, 2 blocks, and 34.5 DraftKings points across 32 minutes in a thrilling 126-125 win.
Whiteside has already been ruled out for tonight's contest as well, so Adebayo will have every chance to repeat his big performance when the Heat travel to Texas to take on the Houston Rockets. Judging by his starting performances this season, that shouldn't be a problem.
Adebayo has now started seven games this season, putting up an average of 12.0 points, 8.7 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.4 blocks, and 33.3 DraftKings points. He's failed to score 30 or more DraftKings just once in those seven contests.
We currently project Adebayo to score 0.98 DraftKings points per minute. At that rate, he'd only need 25 minutes of run to surpass a value of 6.0 DraftKings points per $1,000 at his low $4,000 salary.
