5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 2/15/17

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.

Jordan Clarkson, PG, Los Angeles Lakers

FanDuel Price: $4,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 17.3
Projected FanDuel Value: 3.84

D'Angelo Russell has been struggling with his consistency, which has allowed Jordan Clarkson to contribute as a facilitator. Over his last 4 games, Clarkson is averaging 11 points, 3.8 rebounds, and a steal in 25.3 minutes.

He owns the seventh-best defense-versus-position rank among all point guards on Wednesday's jam-packed slate. The Los Angeles Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns, a matchup with the highest over/under of the night at 226.5 points, so Clarkson could be an integral part of the offense.

Danny Green, SG, San Antonio Spurs

FanDuel Price: $3,900
Projected FanDuel Points: 18.1
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.64

Danny Green has been logging massive playing time lately, getting on the floor for an average of 31.2 minutes over his last 5 games. That's enabled him to produce per-game averages of 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.6 three-pointers during that time.

According to our tools, Green is trending as tonight's seventh-hottest shooting guard and is playing 40.74% above his season average in terms of fantasy points per night over the last 5 games.

Michael Beasley, SF, Milwaukee Bucks

FanDuel Price: $4,900
Projected FanDuel Points: 27.6
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.63

Michael Beasley is coming off a 23-point night which included a fiery 10-of-13 shooting performance from the field. The small forward has averaged 27 minutes over his last three games and could continue to see ample time on the court due to the unfortunate season-ending injury to Jabari Parker.

He's projected to be the highest value among all small forwards playing tonight. The Milwaukee Bucks play the Brooklyn Nets, who have the fifth-worst defensive efficiency among all teams in action.

Juan Hernangomez, PF, Denver Nuggets

FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 28.4
Projected FanDuel Value: 7.11

The Denver Nuggets plan to debut new addition Mason Plumlee tonight, but Juan Hernangomez still figures to be in the big man mix as Plumlee could be eased into the rotation. Hernangomez is coming off a career night of 27 points and 10 rebounds, including 6-of-9 from the three-point line.

Hernangomez is projected to have the highest value among all power forwards on tonight's schedule. The Denver Nuggets own the third-highest implied total of the night at 115.75 points.

Jusuf Nurkic, C, Portland Trail Blazers

FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.4
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.11

Jusuf Nurkic will make his first appearance for the Portland Trail Blazers, a team hampered with injuries in the frontcourt. Followers of Nurkic know he is capable of stuffing the stat sheet -- he boasts per-36 averages of 16 points,11.6 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks this season.

Despite facing a rigid Utah Jazz defense, Nurkic is projected with the highest value among all centers on Wednesday's slate. Priced at minimum salary, he is worth considering as a punt option.
