5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 11/9/16
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 need 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 in the gaps in your lineup tonight.
Shelvin Mack, PG, Utah Jazz
FanDuel Price: $3,900
Projected FanDuel Points: 10.5
Shelvin Mack played a season-high 29 minutes on Monday and recorded a modest 8 points, 5 assists, and 2 steals. With George Hill questionable tonight due to a thumb injury, Mack could earn another start and will have power duo Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward by his side, who have combined to score 84 points in the past two games.
Seth Curry, SG, Dallas Mavericks
FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 15.3
In case you missed it last night, Seth Curry had a breakout performance with 23 points, which included 4 three-pointers. He also added 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals in a season-high 32 minutes. With Deron Williams still iffy with a calf injury, Curry is an enticing option at the minimum salary versus the Golden State Warriors, who lead the league in pace.
Maurice Harkless, SF, Portland Trail Blazers
FanDuel Price: $4,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.9
Maurice Harkless is already seeing a career-high usage rate this season at 16.3%, but with the recent injury to Al-Farouq Aminu he may see even more possessions. In his past four games, Harkless is averaging 15 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 57% shooting from the field. Harkless will have a challenge tonight versus the Los Angeles Clippers, who allow the fifth-fewest FanDuel points to opposing small forwards.
Domantas Sabonis, PF, Oklahoma City Thunder
FanDuel Price: $4,100
Projected FanDuel Points: 16.3
Domantas Sabonis has quietly started every game this season and is surging in productivity. When comparing Sabonis' last three games to his first four games, he is averaging an increase of 6.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in 12.7 more minutes per game. Sabonis will have to step it up against the Toronto Raptors, who allow the third-fewest points to opposing teams.
Bismack Biyombo, C, Orlando Magic
FanDuel Price: $4,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.8
Bismack Biyombo has made his defensive presence felt in limited playing time, with averages of 9.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in his past three games. Biyombo ranks second in the league in block rate at 6.1%, so it only makes sense for the Orlando Magic to keep Biyombo on the court as they are giving up the most FanDuel points to opposing centers.
