NBA DFS Top Value Plays for 02/05/23
Larry Nance Jr DK $4,700 – FD $4,900
Larry Nance Jr. has been a hidden gem in the world of NBA DFS for some time now, and it’s time to take notice of this versatile player. With the recent injury updates of both starting center Jonas Valanciunas and Zion Williamson, Nance is likely to receive a significant boost in playing time on Sunday. This presents a valuable opportunity for DFS players, as Nance has consistently delivered 25 or more fantasy points in just 23.5 minutes of play over the last four games.
If you’re looking for a low-priced option with high potential for your NBA DFS lineup on DraftKings or FanDuel, Larry Nance Jr. is your guy. Priced at just $4,700 on DraftKings and $4,900 on FanDuel, Nance offers great value against a Kings squad that lacks an interior presence.
Don’t be fooled by Nance’s limited bench role, as his stats speak for themselves. He’s averaging over 21 DK points per game in just 22 minutes of play. A boost in playing time by 20 percent would bring Nance to a $6K player level, especially since he’s averaging 33 DK points per game in the 15 games he’s played at least 25 minutes. This kind of stat-stuffing performance is exactly what you need to take advantage of the subpar defense of the Kings. With a projected 30-minute starting center role, Nance is a must-have pick for your NBA DFS lineup tonight.
Isaiah Hartenstein DK $4,000 – FD $5,000
With Mitchell Robinson out of the lineup, Isaiah Hartenstein has stepped up and become a reliable source of salary relief for NBA DFS players. In his last three games, Hartenstein has recorded double-digit rebounds and delivered 25 or more fantasy points. Despite facing a tough matchup against Joel Embiid, Hartenstein’s low price point makes it possible for him to deliver 5X his value or even better.
Recently, Hartenstein had a good showing against his former team. Coach Tibs is giving the backup center ample playing time, and Hartenstein is capitalizing on the opportunity. Over the past six games, he’s been averaging 25.7 DKFP and 26.8 MPG, translating to a return of 7.1X. Don’t overlook this value play in your NBA DFS lineup tonight.

Kings Look to Offer Value Once Again
Kings’ ball-handling responsibilities will likely fall to Monk with Fox expected to miss this game. With a team-high 30 percent usage rate in Fox’s absence, Monk has shown to be a capable playmaker. He has maintained a 33-point average across his last three games, making him a solid pick at just barely over $5,000. The Pelicans have struggled recently, allowing 117 points per game in their last 14 games, and Monk has posted at least 32 DK points in both recent matchups against them.
Rookie Keegan Murray has seen a solid role recently, averaging 35 minutes a night over his last 10 games. Despite a mini two-game slump, Murray has posted a 28-point average across his previous eight games. At just $5,000, he is a strong pick against a struggling New Orleans defense, with Domantas Sabonis expected to attract much of the tough defense.
Although Mitchell had a rough outing on Friday, his value at just $3,300 makes him worth a second look. With the Kings’ bench solid and a tough matchup, not many players are expected to return to Mitchell, giving him the potential for low ownership and high reward.
John Konchar is a value pick for DFS who is worth considering for his low salary and recent performance. Konchar’s minutes and usage rate are low, but he has shown the ability to return good value at this salary.
Santi Aldama is another option for DFS who may see more playing time due to the Grizzlies being banged up. However, there is a risk in selecting Aldama as he has had a string of poor performances recently.
Christian Braun, a rookie first-round pick for the Denver Nuggets, is expected to play 30 minutes in the upcoming game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. This is due to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope‘s injury and the likelihood that the team will be short-handed.
Braun has been previously mentioned in the weekend NBA DFS targets article and had a season-high 32 minutes of play time and 26.25 DKFP for an 8.5x return in his previous game. The game against the Timberwolves is expected to be fast-paced, as Minnesota is sixth in Pace.
