NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Wednesday 01/18/23

If you’re looking for a solid pick in your daily fantasy lineups, check out Mitchell Robinson of the New York Knicks. Despite being priced around $6,000 on both DraftKings and FanDuel, Robinson has been killing it on the court lately. He’s been playing 35 minutes a game and averaging over 30 fantasy points per game in the last month.

That kind of production is hard to come by at this price point. Plus, he’s facing a Washington team that ranks in the middle of the pack defensively, so there’s no reason to think Robinson won’t continue to put up big numbers. Don’t sleep on this guy!

Jamal Murray of the Denver Nugget has a salary that is pretty attractive on both DraftKings and FanDuel and he’s been putting up some serious numbers recently. He’s hit the 40-point mark on DraftKings 10 times and on FanDuel 9 times this season. And it’s not just a fluke – Murray shot 50% from the field in his one previous game against the Minnesota Timberwolves this season and he’s shooting an impressive 39% from 3-point range at home this season.

And he’s been especially hot from behind the arc in recent games, making 47.1% of his 3-point attempts in his last 11 contests. Minnesota is a good matchup for Murray as well, as they allow the 10th-highest offensive efficiency rating to point guards and have given up the fourth-most steals per game. Plus, they’ve allowed 37.1% shooting from 3-point range on the season and 41.2% in their last three games. With Murray shooting 48.8% from distance in his last six games, he’s looking like a great option for tonight’s lineup.

The T-Wolves could be missing several key players tonight, including Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards, Rudy Gobert, and Taurean Prince. However, Edwards has been active all year despite his injuries and Gobert is only listed as questionable so far. If Gobert doesn’t play, Naz Reid will likely start and will be a great pick for your lineup.

Reid has started four times this season and is averaging 38 DK points per game, including two 50-point performances back in December. That kind of ceiling is hard to come by for less than $5,000. With Towns and Gobert both injured, Reid has received big minutes and scored 52 DK points in two of the three starts he’s made this year.

That’s the kind of production you’d expect from a $10,000 player, and you’re getting it for half the price here. Plus, the Nuggets are ranked 22nd in defensive efficiency ratings, so it’s not a daunting matchup. If you’re looking for a GPP play, Reid is a great option to consider.

Alperen Sengun of the Houston Rockets has been on fire lately, averaging 44 DraftKings points in his last six games. This spike in production can be attributed to the injury of teammate Kevin Porter Jr., as Sengun has stepped up to fill the void as the focal point of the offense.

Sengun and the Rockets are set to face off against the Charlotte Hornets, who have been struggling to defend against opposing centers this season. In his most recent game against the Lakers, Sengun put up an impressive 33 points, 15 rebounds, six assists, and four blocks.

While his playing time was inconsistent early on in the season, Sengun has been seeing an average of 32 minutes over the last six games and has certainly made a case for himself to continue to see an expanded role. Over the alst 6 games he has average 18.3 pts, 10.2 reb, 5.7 ast, 1.2 stl, and 1.2 blk per game.

He’s a must-have on your roster at this price, make sure to grab him at $7,700 on DraftKings or $7,500 on FanDuel before it’s too late.

If you’re looking for some more value plays for tonight’s games, check out Terance Mann of the LA Clippers, Andrew Nembhard of the Indiana Pacers, Reggie Jackson of the LA Clippers, Bennedict Mathurin of the Indiana Pacers, and Robert Covington of the LA Clippers.

Mann has been playing 30-35 minutes lately and averaging over 30 DraftKings points per game in his expanded role. Nembhard may not be making many shots recently, but he’s playing a lot of minutes and has a lot of upsides.

Jackson may not be starting for the Clippers lately, but he has an excellent chance to shine against the Jazz on Wednesday. Mathurin is a great bargain in Indiana, and he’s averaging 30 fantasy points per game in the absence of Tyrese Haliburton.

Covington has been in and out of the rotation for the Clippers, but he’s been playing 24 minutes a night lately and has a lot of upside if some of the Clippers’ other players are out.

These value plays are a great way to maximize your fantasy points while keeping your budget in check tonight. Keep an eye on the injury reports and lineups to make sure these players are getting the minutes they need to produce. With a little bit of research and a bit of luck, you’ll be on your way to a winning lineup. Don’t forget to have fun and good luck!
