5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 10/28/16

Steven Adams keeps seeing minutes for the Thunder but remains affordable -- for now. Who else can save you salary?

One of the keys to finding success in daily fantasy basketball is uncovering potential value plays.

If you're looking to roster a stud player or two, you ought to consider squeezing in one of these lower-priced options into your lineup.

Let's take a look at five players who can help fill the gaps in your lineup tonight.

Tyler Johnson, PG, Miami Heat

FanDuel Price: $4,600
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.4

Tyler Johnson was an all-around spark plug in his opener as he tallied 15 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and a couple of steals. Johnson was hot, too, making 7 of 11 shots, and will look to continue his efficient ways against the Charlotte Hornets.

E'Twaun Moore, SG, New Orleans Pelicans

FanDuel Price: $4,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.8

E'Twaun Moore had a decent debut with 10 points, 4 assists, and a team-best +10 plus/minus. His season opener was historically dominated by teammate Anthony Davis -- unless Davis repeats ridiculousness, Moore figures to see an uptick in production versus the fast-paced Golden State Warriors in a game with an over/under of 222, tops of the night.

T.J. Warren, SF, Phoenix Suns

FanDuel Price: $4,600
Projected FanDuel Points: 20.6

T.J. Warren logged a team-high 30 minutes and attempted 14 shots in the season opener, but he only managed to score a total of 14 points. Warren will look to stay aggressive tonight in hopes of converting more baskets versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jon Leuer, PF, Detroit Pistons

FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.6

Jon Leuer nearly double-doubled off the bench in his Detroit Pistons debut with 9 points and 9 rebounds in 23 minutes of play. If Andre Drummond struggles to stay on the floor (ranked fourth in total fouls last season), look for Leuer to step in and produce once again.

Steven Adams, C, Oklahoma City Thunder

FanDuel Price: $4,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 26.5

Steven Adams played a team-high 36 minutes in the opener, which equaled the playing time of fantasy monster teammate Russell Westbrook. Adams is already showing signs of being more aggressive on the offensive end, as he attempted an unorthodox 16 field goals in his first game, which is more than triple his career average.
