NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Thursday 02/09/23
Wendell Carter DK $6,000 – FD $6,500
Wendell Carter Jr. has been a reliable player for the Bulls this season and is a great value play for DFS players. Despite his impressive stats, his low price makes him even more appealing to DFS owners. Carter has been a consistent performer, averaging 32 fantasy points per game and scoring a minimum of 26 points in 27 of his 32 starts. This makes him a lock for 30 fantasy points, a great return for his price.
His strong performances against Denver’s Nikola Jokic, who is known to be one of the worst defensive centers in the NBA, make him even more valuable. In their last two matchups, Carter averaged 36 fantasy points per game, proving his worth as a valuable option for DFS players. According to NBA Study Hub, his projected points for tonight’s game is 30.60 with a projected 29 minutes, giving him a value of 5.10, which places him in the B tier for both projections and value.

Damion Lee DK $3,200 – $3,900
Damion Lee’s low salary and high projected performance make him a valuable option for DFS players looking for a bargain. Despite being a risky pick, Lee has shown his potential to deliver when given ample playing time. With several Phoenix players missing the game, Lee is expected to receive a significant role, which could lead to a high return on investment.
According to the NBA Study Hub, Lee has a projected score of 23.44 DK points and is expected to play 28 minutes. His projected value is 7.33 and is ranked in the “A” tier for value. With his consistent performance in games where he sees 30 or more minutes, and a low salary, Lee is a strong pick for DFS players looking for a value play.

Disregard Dario Saric because he was just traded to the Thunder
Dario Saric DK $3,500 – FD $4,200 Dario Saric has been a valuable asset for the Phoenix Suns, filling in nicely during the team’s recent injuries and absences. With 7 starts under his belt, Saric is averaging over 24 fantasy points per game, excluding the 2 games where he only played 8 minutes. He showed his potential in his last start, putting up a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds, which translated to 38 fantasy points. With the team likely to be short-handed on Thursday, Saric is expected to see an increase in playing time and is a solid option to consider in all formats if he starts. The NBA Study Hub projections have Saric projected for 30.15 fantasy points, with a value of 8.61 based on his $3,500 salary on DraftKings. This makes him a tier B player in terms of projected performance and a tier A player in terms of value.
Ayo Dosunmu DK $4,200 – FD $5,200
Ayo Dosunmu has been a key player for the Bulls, especially with the backcourt being hit with several injuries. Despite the absence of key players such as Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and DeMar DeRozan, Dosunmu has managed to maintain a consistent performance, averaging 26 DK points per game in his last four games, which is impressive for a player at such an affordable price point.
He has been playing an average of 34 minutes per game and is expected to continue doing so as long as Ball remains out. Dosunmu’s consistency and floor make him a reliable value play, giving fantasy owners peace of mind even if his ceiling is not as high as desired.
In terms of his fantasy value, Dosunmu is projected to score 18.21 points on DraftKings with an expected 27 minutes of playing time. According to the NBA DFS Study Hub, this puts him in the “E” tier for DraftKings projection and the “E” tier for DraftKings value. Given his recent performance and expected playing time, Dosunmu is a solid value play for fantasy owners.
Torrey Craig DK $4,100 – FD $4,500
Torrey Craig might not be the most consistent per-minute performer, but he has proven to be a valuable fantasy option in certain matchups. At his current price of $4,100 on DraftKings, he offers great value and is worth considering for tonight’s game. With the Suns already down multiple players due to injury and trade, Craig is expected to see an increase in playing time and usage.
When Craig has seen double-digit shot attempts this season, he has been extremely productive, averaging nearly 30 fantasy points per game. He is expected to see a similar number of shot attempts tonight, making him a strong option for those looking to build a “stars and scrubs” lineup. Despite being in the “C” tier for projected points, Craig is in the “A” tier for value, providing a solid return on investment for his $4,100 salary on DraftKings.
