5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 11/29/16
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.
Matthew Dellavedova, PG, Milwaukee Bucks
FanDuel Price: $4,100
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.1
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.14
Matthew Dellavedova is averaging nearly 30 minutes per game, which has helped him become the leading assist man on the Milwaukee Bucks. Dellavedova is setting career marks thus far in his new role as a starter, which includes 7.9 points and 6.3 assists per game.
The Bucks host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who give up the second-most fantasy points to opposing point guards among teams playing tonight, so even if you don't want to stroll down narrative street, Delly is in a great spot against his old crew.
Jamal Crawford, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
FanDuel Price: $3,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 20.0
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.27
Jamal Crawford has scored double figures in four straight games, averaging 13.3 points on 11.8 field goal attempts during that span. With news of Blake Griffin dealing with swelling in his knee, Crawford may be asked to fill a potential scoring void. Also, Clips coach Doc Rivers said he may rest some starters during the next three games. If (or when) that happens, Crawford will see a big boost in value.
Tonight, the Los Angeles Clippers visit the Brooklyn Nets, who give up the most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards among teams playing tonight, and Brooklyn leads the league in pace.
Solomon Hill, SF, New Orleans Pelicans
FanDuel Price: $3,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.2
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.06
Solomon Hill is coming off a season-high 42 minutes played in which he only managed 9 points and 4 rebounds. Though Hill does not light up the box score, he is averaging 5.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 steals and a block in his past three games.
The New Orleans Pelicans play the Los Angeles Lakers, who allow the second-most fantasy points to opposing small forwards among teams playing tonight. The Lakers rank 28th in defensive rating, and they are 4th in pace.
Larry Nance Jr., PF, Los Angeles Lakers
FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 19.6
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.9
Larry Nance Jr. has been looking to score the ball as of late, with averages of 10.6 points on 63% shooting over his past five games. Nance will continue to step up in the lingering absence of Julius Randle, who is a game-time call tonight.
The Lakers visit the Pelicans, who give up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing power forwards among teams playing tonight. If Randle sits, Nance will be a solid value play.
Tristan Thompson, C, Cleveland Cavaliers
FanDuel Price: $5,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.0
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.61
Tristan Thompson is coming off back-to-back games notching a double-double, averaging 11.5 points, 12 rebounds, and 69% shooting from the field in that span. Thompson has been a consistent monster on the boards this season by grabbing double-digit rebounds in all but four games.
The Cavaliers visit the Bucks, who give up the second-most fantasy points to opposing centers among teams playing tonight.
