3 NBA FanDuel Value Plays for 10/18/17
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 three players who can help fill in the gaps in your lineup.
Jaylen Brown, SG, Boston Celtics
FanDuel Price: $3,700
Projected FanDuel Points: 24
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.48
Jaylen Brown logged a whopping 40 minutes last night, as he saw extended minutes because of the unfortunate injury to Gordon Hayward. With this unexpected playing time, he totaled 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals.
He'll look to continue his hot start tonight versus the Milwaukee Bucks, and despite playing on the second half of a back-to-back, Brown is projected with the second-highest value among all players at his position.
Taurean Prince, SF, Atlanta Hawks
FanDuel Price: $3,400
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.9
Projected FanDuel Value: 6.72
Taurean Prince will begin the season in the starting lineup for a depleted Atlanta Hawks squad. He had a strong finish last season, as he started six playoff games and averaged 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 31.2 minutes.
According to our models, Prince has the fourth-highest projected value among all small forwards on tonight's slate.
Jeremy Lamb, SF, Charlotte Hornets
FanDuel Price: $3,500
Projected FanDuel Points: 27
Projected FanDuel Value: 7.7
Jeremy Lamb has recovered from a minor groin injury and will be ready to roll in the Charlotte Hornets' starting five. Lamb is expected to see a big increase in playing time as long as Nicolas Batum is sidelined.
Per our numbers, Lamb has the second-highest value among all players at his position.
