5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 11/21/16
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.
Jonathan Gibson, PG, Dallas Mavericks
FanDuel Price: $3,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 17.3
Jonathan Gibson will be temporarily tasked with handling backcourt duties with Devin Harris, Deron Williams, and J.J. Barea all out with injuries. In only two games played, Gibson is averaging an impressive 18.5 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1.5 steals in 25.8 minutes. Gibson will have a tough matchup as the Dallas Mavericks face off against the San Antonio Spurs, who give up the third-fewest FanDuel points to opposing point guards.
Tomas Satoransky, SG, Washington Wizards
FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 18.7
Tomas Satoransky has quietly played well behind the explosive backcourt duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal. In his past six games, Satoransky is averaging 7.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in 24.6 minutes. The Washington Wizards face the Phoenix Suns tonight in what is projected to be a high-scoring affair. Plus, the Suns allow the sixth-most points and the second-most assists to opposing shooting guards.
Glenn Robinson III, SF, Indiana Pacers
FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.8
Glenn Robinson III stepped up on Sunday in the absence of C.J. Miles with 16 points and 11 rebounds in a career-high 44 minutes. Miles has been ruled out for today's game, which gives Robinson III another shot at producing a decent stat line. The Indiana Pacers host the Golden State Warriors, who rank third in pace and give up the eighth-most points to opposing small forwards.
Alex Len, PF, Phoenix Suns
FanDuel Price: $4,900
Projected FanDuel Points: 17.6
Alex Len has double-doubled in three of his past six games and may play heavier minutes tonight if Tyson Chandler is unable to suit up. Len has played well even in limited minutes lately, as he's averaged 8.7 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in 22.9 minutes over his past three games. The Wizards are fourth-worst in defensive efficiency and allow the sixth-most points to opposing power forwards.
Bismack Biyombo, C, Orlando Magic
FanDuel Price: $4,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.2
Bismack Biyombo is continuing to be a major weapon in the second for the Orlando Magic unit as he's making the most of his time in a loaded frontcourt. In his last three games, Biyombo is averaging 9 points, 9 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in just 23 minutes. The Magic visit the Milwaukee Bucks, who give up the most blocks and the most FanDuel points to opposing centers.
