5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 12/6/16

If there are some high-priced studs in your NBA DFS lineup tonight, check out these value plays to fill out your squad.

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 on Monday.

Patrick Mills, PG, San Antonio Spurs

FanDuel Price: $4,300
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.0
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.36

Patrick "Patty" Mills is expected to take on a bigger role tonight as Tony Parker is dealing with an apparent knee injury. In two recent games Parker missed, Mills averaged 16.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6 assists in 28.4 minutes.

The San Antonio Spurs visit the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves, who offer the fourth-best matchup to opposing point guards among teams playing on Tuesday.

Wayne Ellington, SG, Miami Heat

FanDuel Price: $4,300
Projected FanDuel Points: 16.72
Projected FanDuel Value: 3.89

The Miami Heat are banged up beyond belief, meaning Wayne Ellington will continue to see a heavy dose of playing time. Ellington has topped 30 minutes in each of his last three games and is averaging 17 points, 3 three-pointers made, and 1.7 steals during that span.

That trend could continue, as the New York Knicks have been allowing opposing shooting guards to consistently feast on their defense.

Marcus Morris, SF, Detroit Pistons

FanDuel Price: $5,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.8
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.55

Marcus Morris is enjoying a splendid year through 22 games with career-highs of 14.3 points and 82% efficiency from the free-throw line. Over his past four games, Morris is averaging 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and a scorching 2.8 three-pointers over 34.6 minutes.

The small forward holds a lot of value on Monday, as the Detroit Pistons are hosting the Chicago Bulls, who have struggled defending the position thus far.

Richaun Holmes, PF, Philadelphia 76ers

FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 30.92
Projected FanDuel Value: 8.83

Richaun Holmes is primed to get a lot of run with both Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor taking the night off. When playing without Embiid and Okafor, Holmes is generating 1.01 FanDuel points per minute, according to nbawowy.

Holmes will have his work cut out for him, though. Of the teams playing on Tuesday's slate, the Philadelphia 76ers are going up against the third-toughest matchup for opposing forwards in the Memphis Grizzlies

Bismack Biyombo, C, Orlando Magic

FanDuel Price: $4,300
Projected FanDuel Points: 26.5
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.17

Bismack Biyombo has seen a boost in playing time since becoming a starter, averaging 32.6 minutes in his past five games. Biyombo also seems to be getting more involved, as he's recorded back-to-back games with 4 assists to go along with grabbing 10 rebounds per night.

The Orlando Magic big man will get a considerable test against the Washington Wizards, who are one of the tougher teams against the position.
