5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 11/23/16
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.
Ty Lawson, PG, Sacramento Kings
FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.5
Ty Lawson has managed to play a healthy dose of minutes even with the return of backcourt mate Darren Collison. In the past two games, Lawson is averaging 11.5 points, 4 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and 1.5 steals in 31.2 minutes. The Sacramento Kings host the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are the 24th-ranked defense against point guards among the 26 teams in action tonight.
Rodney Stuckey, SG, Indiana Pacers
FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 14.2
Bojan Bogdanovic, SF, Brooklyn Nets
FanDuel Price: $4,300
Projected FanDuel Points: 17.7
Bojan Bogdanovic has really stepped up his shooting over his past four games with a 63% field goal percentage on 11.5 attempts. With Jeremy Lin still sidelined, Bogdanovic is clearly the second-best scoring option behind Brook Lopez with a season average of 14.8 points. The Brooklyn Nets host the Boston Celtics, who give up the second-most points to opposing small forwards of teams playing Wednesday night.
Enes Kanter, PF, Oklahoma City Thunder
FanDuel Price: $4,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.1
Enes Kanter has been a beast in limited playing time with averages of 12.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks in 19.1 minutes over his past seven games. Kanter could see a slight boost in minutes tonight if fellow big man Steven Adams gets some rest on the tail end of a back-to-back. The Oklahoma City Thunder play the Sacramento Kings, who allow the second-most points and to opposing power forwards.
Alan Williams, C, Phoenix Suns
FanDuel Price: $4,100
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.8
Alan Williams will see more playing time with Tyson Chandler missing another game tonight. Though playing behind Alex Len, Williams has averaged 21.8 minutes in his the last three games with 10.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 2 blocks. The Phoenix Suns visit the Orlando Magic, who give up the fourth-most rebounds and the fourth-most blocks to opposing centers.
