NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Sunday 3/19/23
Despite a rocky start to his career due to injuries, Fultz has been lighting up the court lately. He has scored at least 27 DraftKings points in 17 of his last 19 games, averaging 35 points in that span. In fact, Fultz has been so impressive that he recorded 50 or more DK points in back-to-back games, the best stretch of his career so far. With Jalen Suggs out, Fultz has taken on an even more prominent role in the Orlando Magic lineup.
Fultz is set to face off against the Lakers, a team that ranks fourth in pace but 22nd in points allowed. This presents an opportunity for Fultz to continue his hot streak, especially since the Lakers surrender the third-most fantasy points to opposing PGs.
Despite his recent success, Fultz’s salary has remained relatively stable, making him an attractive option for DFS lineups.
Ivica Zubac is a sleeper pick for Sunday’s NBA DFS slate, with an attractive $5,300 price tag on DraftKings. Despite concerns about his role following the acquisition of Mason Plumlee, Zubac has played at least 27 minutes in 13 of his last 14 games, averaging over 35 fantasy points per game in those outings. In his last two games, he has scored 45 and 41 DraftKings points, and he’s poised for another strong showing against the Portland Trail Blazers, who allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing centers.
With Portland ranking 27th in defensive efficiency, Zubac is set to thrive in the matchup. He’s projected to be an unpopular pick, making him a great value play for those looking to differentiate their lineups.

Herbert Jones is a solid value play for Sunday’s NBA DFS slate. The New Orleans Pelicans are facing the Houston Rockets, who struggle defensively and allow the most steals per game to opposing teams. Jones, who needs just 25 DK points for 5x value, has hit that mark in five of his last seven games. He scores and racks up steals, two areas where the Rockets rank poorly in preventing.
Although he only scored 19.75 DK points against Houston in his last game, Jones has exceeded 30 FDFPs multiple times since the All-Star break and seems to have a secure starting role. With a favorable matchup and a low price tag, Jones is a good play for those looking to save salary and add some consistency to their lineups.
Devin Vassell is a strong DFS option for Sunday’s slate, with a favorable matchup against the Atlanta Hawks, who allow the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing SGs. Despite the Spurs’ questionable tactics lately, Vassell remains a reliable scorer, averaging 32 DraftKings points per game this season. With San Antonio resting multiple players each night, Vassell took advantage in his most recent game by dropping 43 DK points across 35 minutes and taking 21 shots.
As long as he continues to play significant minutes and take 15-20 shots per game, he’ll be a great value play for DFS players, especially considering his low price tag of $6,200 on FanDuel and $6,500 on DraftKings. Vassell’s consistency and the favorable matchup make him a solid option for Sunday’s slate.
