Buddy Hield has been lighting it up from deep for the Kings. Which other low-cost options are in a good spot for Monday's NBA DFS action?

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.

Patty Mills, PG, San Antonio Spurs

FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.1
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.77

Both Tony Parker and Dejounte Murray will not be suiting up tonight, which will allow Patty Mills to navigate point guard for the San Antonio Spurs. Mills is coming off a 21-point performance, which was his fourth 20-plus scoring effort this season.

He's also projected to have the highest value among all point guards on Monday night.

Buddy Hield, SG, Sacramento Kings

FanDuel Price: $4,200
Projected FanDuel Points: 20.8
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.95

Buddy Hield has had the hot hand lately, scoring double figures in eight of his last nine games. In his past three outings, Hield is averaging 15.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.3 three-pointers in 28.4 minutes.

According to our tools, Hield is trending as tonight's fourth-hottest shooting guard, playing 31.71% above his season average in terms of fantasy points per night over the last five games.

Brandon Ingram, SF, Los Angeles Lakers

FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.8
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.7

Brandon Ingram has picked up his performance over the past week and is shooting 52% from the field on 10.5 field goal attempts over his last four games. He continues to log heavy minutes, averaging 38.2 during that same span.

Ingram has the fourth-best defense-versus-position matchup among all small forwards playing against the Denver Nuggets.

Nemanja Bjelica, PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

FanDuel Price: $4,200
Projected FanDuel Points: 17.5
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.15

Nemanja Bjelica has been getting a good amount of run since the end of February, as he's averaged 29 minutes over his last six games. Though a bit sporadic with his production, Bjelica has shown upside by posting 8.8 points, 8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists during that span, including two double-doubles.

He shares the second-best defense-versus-position matchup among all power forwards with teammate Gorgui Dieng.

Ivica Zubac, C, Los Angeles Lakers

FanDuel Price: $3,700
Projected FanDuel Points: 23.2
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.26

Ivica Zubac may finally be seeing consistent opportunities -- he's played 17.9 minutes over his last two games with averages of 12 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Though the Los Angeles Lakers are playing the second game of a back-to-back on Monday, the young legs of Zubac are likely capable of producing at a decent level.

Priced at nearly minimum salary, Zubac boasts the highest projected value among all players on tonight's slate. His matchup versus the Nuggets is projected with a total over/under of 230 points, the highest total of the night.
