NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Sunday 3/12/23
Immanuel Quickley is a valuable option for your NBA DFS DraftKings lineup, with his versatility and consistent scoring making him a top choice. While he is often considered a Sixth Man of the Year candidate, Quickley has also started games in place of the injured Jalen Brunson.
In these six games, he has averaged an impressive 46 DraftKings points per game, showcasing his ability to handle the ball and make big plays for his team. The Lakers defense is known for its weaknesses, particularly when it comes to guarding opposing guards. This only adds to Quickley’s potential for a high-scoring outing. At $6900 on DraftKings and $7000 on FanDuel, Quickley is a top value play for your DFS lineup.
Cameron Johnson is a hidden gem in the Kevin Durant trade, now finding himself as the go-to shooter on the Brooklyn Nets. With a guaranteed 35-minute role, Johnson is a consistent source of scoring for the team. He has scored 24 or more DraftKings points in 11 of his last 13 games, averaging an impressive 29 points per game during this stretch.
Johnson has also posted five games with at least 33 fantasy points in his last seven games, cementing his value as a top choice for your DFS lineup. Despite facing the top team in the west, the Denver Nuggets, their 14th-ranked defense does not deter us from using Johnson, especially since he is capable of attempting 15 shots per game. At just $6200 on DraftKings and $6300 on FanDuel, Johnson is an excellent value play for your NBA DFS lineup.

Nick Richards is a great per-dollar play for your NBA DFS DraftKings lineup, especially if Mark Williams is still out. With Williams taking over the starting center role after Mason Plumlee’s trade, Richards was moved into the backup position. However, with Williams out, Richards has now stepped up as the starting center and is expected to play a 30-minute role. In his last two games, Richards has scored an impressive 31 and 34 DraftKings points, playing at least 29 minutes in both games.
This is not surprising, as Richards has been averaging over 1.1 DraftKings points per minute this season. It is difficult to understand why Richards is still priced at just $4K, especially since Charlotte needs him to play big minutes to counter the large Cleveland frontcourt. At $4000 on DraftKings and $5400 on FanDuel, Richards is a top value play for your DFS lineup.
Devin Vassell is a viable option for your NBA DFS DraftKings lineup, especially since there isn’t much value on the slate. After missing two months due to a knee injury, Vassell has made a solid return, scoring 24.5, 23.75, and 23 DraftKings points in his last three games while playing between 23-31 minutes. Though these numbers are lower than his season average of 32.7 DraftKings points, he could potentially see extra minutes and fantasy production if Keldon Johnson and Jeremy Sochan are unable to play.
With a solid 25.7% usage rate and a 1.20 FPTS/min rate when these two are off the floor, Vassell has a promising outlook, especially against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing teams this season, making Vassell a great choice for your DFS lineup. At just $5800 on DraftKings and $6500 on FanDuel, Vassell is a top value play to consider.
