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.
Ramon Sessions, PG, New York Knicks
FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.6
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.42
Ramon Sessions has done a respectable job filling in as the interim point man for the New York Knicks. In two games, he is averaging 6.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3 assists in 26.7 minutes. According to our metrics, he is projected to offer the 3rd-highest value among all players at his position tonight.
E'Twaun Moore, SG, New Orleans Pelicans
FanDuel Price: $4,200
Projected FanDuel Points: 22.9
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.46
E'Twaun Moore is coming off a brilliant shooting performance, making 8-of-9 from the field, including 3-of-4 from the three-point line. Though Moore hasn't produced much else in the box score -- he's only averaging 2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in three games -- he continues to log heavy minutes in the New Orleans Pelicans rotation. Based on our projections, Moore boasts the highest value among all shooting guards on today's slate.
Maurice Harkless, SF, Portland Trailblazers
FanDuel Price: $4,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 24.7
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.15
Maurice Harkless put up his first double-digit scoring game on Saturday, notching 13 points with 2 three-pointers. On the defensive end, Harkless has pitched in with 4 steals and 2 blocks in three games. He is projected to deliver the highest value among all small forwards versus the New Orleans Pelicans. This matchup is tied with the smallest spread of the night, so Harkless should get a high volume of minutes on the court.
