5 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 3/1/17
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.
Matthew Dellavedova, PG, Milwaukee Bucks
FanDuel Price: $3,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 18.8
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.94
Matthew Dellavedova has had a rough time scoring the ball over his last six games, putting up an average of just 4.3 points on 5.8 field goal attempts a game. However, he has averaged 4.8 assists with a 4-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio in an average of 29.4 minutes during that same span.
Dellavedova has the third-highest projected value among all point guards playing tonight. He will look to pick it up on the offensive end against the Denver Nuggets, who are ranked last in the league in defensive efficiency.
Buddy Hield, SG, Sacramento Kings
FanDuel Price: $4,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 18.1
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.11
Since being traded to the Sacramento Kings, rookie Buddy Hield has fared pretty well. In his first three games donning purple, Hield is averaging 13 points, 4 rebounds, and 1.3 three-pointers made in 26.4 minutes off the bench.
Terrence Ross, SF, Orlando Magic
FanDuel Price: $4,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.6
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.13
Terrence Ross has played like a boss since being traded to the Orlando Magic. In his first two games with the Magic, Ross is averaging 18.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3 three-pointers, and 2.5 steals in a whopping 34.1 minutes of play.
Ross has the fourth-highest projected value among all small forwards playing on today's jam-packed slate.
Richaun Holmes, PF, Philadelphia 76ers
FanDuel Price: $4,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.5
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.22
With the unfortunate news of Joel Embiid set to miss the rest of the season, Richaun Holmes will get his shot at productive stat lines from here on out. Over his last three games, Holmes has been a swat monster with an average of 3.3 blocks in just 23.3 minutes. During the same span, he has also put up 11.7 points (on 63% shooting), 5.3 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per night.
Holmes has the third-highest projected value among all power forwards on Wednesday night.
Kyle O'Quinn, C, New York Knicks
FanDuel Price: $4,700
Projected FanDuel Points: 32.5
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.91
Guillermo Hernangomez will not suit up tonight, which should enable Kyle O'Quinn to absorb the bulk of the big-man minutes for the New York Knicks. O'Quinn is coming off a quiet yet efficient night with 4 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks in only 14.5 minutes.
O'Quinn boasts the highest projected value among all players on tonight's slate. In addition, he has the fifth-best defense-versus-position matchup for the Knicks' meeting with Orlando, so he is an enticing option who could return decent value.
