3 Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Plays for 3/23/16
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'll need to find one of these lower-priced options to squeeze everyone into your lineup.
Let's take a look at three guys who can help fill the gaps in your lineup tonight. Of course, remember to check our projections closer to tip because so much can change in the NBA throughout the day.
Wesley Matthews, SG, Dallas Mavericks
FanDuel Price: $3,800
Wesley Matthews has been up-and-down all year and has likely burned all of us at least once. Well, let's fire up the Matthews bandwagon one more time. However, this time it is because Chandler Parsons is out of the lineup for the next four games and Matthews will benefit the most. He played 42 minutes last game on his way to 25 fantasy points on FanDuel.
He is such a low risk because of his cost and head coach, Rick Carlisle, came out and said they are going to "rely heavily" on Matthews while Parsons is sidelined. Especially for someone who costs only $3,800, that sounds like he will get a lot of opportunities to make you money.
Michael Beasley, SF, Houston Rockets
FanDuel Price: $4,800
Michael Beasley has been a great asset over his last seven games. Last night was the first time that he hasn't paid at least five times his price tag in those seven contests. He may have burned you a little last night if you plugged him into your roster, but he has been so good recently that one game shouldn't scare us away. If he sees his normal minutes in the high 20's then he will most likely be a great play.
Mason Plumlee, C, Portland Trail Blazers
FanDuel Price: $5,200
Mason Plumlee had a monster game on Sunday with 14 points and 19 rebounds. After a few days rest, he is ready to try and repeat that performance. Our projections love Plumlee tonight on both major sites. We have him projected for about 27 fantasy points on FanDuel, which would exceed five times his salary.
His minutes have been trending upward, and it doesn't look like that will stop now. He scored 43 fantasy points on Sunday across 32 minutes. The Trail Blazers take on the Mavericks tonight at home.
