NBA FanDuel Value Plays to Target on Thursday 3/10/22
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-salaried options into your lineup.
Let's take a look at two players who can help fill in the gaps in your lineup.
Goran Dragic, PG, Brooklyn Nets ($4,200)
With an ever-changing rotation of players, Goran Dragic is a value option for the Brooklyn Nets.
Dragic has played 22 minutes or more in three straight games and 27 minutes in two of those three games. His role has steadily increased for the Nets, and it's showing in his production, with 21 FanDuel points or more in two of his last three games. He has a modest 18.8% offensive usage rate overall while producing 0.88 FanDuel points per minute.
The matchup versus the Philadelphia 76ers has a high 234.5-point over/under and a 4.5-point spread, which is a very strong game environment for fantasy production. Dragic is projected for 26.71 minutes and 19.6 FanDuel points but can easily exceed that if the game stays close.
Moses Moody, SG, Golden State Warriors ($4,300)
The Golden State Warriors have a few injuries, and Moses Moody should be in the starting lineup.
Andre Iguodala, Gary Payton II, and Otto Porter are all out for the Warriors, and we should be seeing Moody in the starting lineup. In the Warriors' current starting lineup, Moody has a 16.6% usage rate and is producing 1.00 FanDuel points per minute. It's a smaller sample size, but it's encouraging that he can be productive while on the court with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
He'll be going up against the Denver Nuggets with a 228.5-point over/under and a 1.5-point spread, which has all the makings of being a very fantasy-friendly game. That should allow Moody to reach value tonight.
