NBA DFS top value plays for nba draftkings lineup

If you’re looking for the NBA DFS Top Value Plays for tonight’s slate? We’ve got you covered. Check out our top picks for players who are priced lower than their potential, allowing you to maximize your roster’s potential for a big win.

Malaki Branham DK $5,500 – FD $4,500

Malaki Branham presents an intriguing DFS option in the upcoming game against the Dallas Mavericks. While the Spurs are being cautious with some of their players due to injuries, Branham has been putting up solid numbers, averaging 30 DraftKings points per game over his last eight outings.

He is priced at $4,500 on DraftKings and $5,500 on FanDuel, making him an excellent value play. Although he is only eligible at SF on FanDuel, you can still play Talen Horton-Tucker at SG to make it work. Branham’s recent surge in usage and excellent performance make him a player to watch in the upcoming game against the Mavericks, who have a weak defensive backcourt.

Talen Horton-Tucker DK $4,800 – FD $5,600

Talen Horton-Tucker could be a solid DFS option in the upcoming game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. With Collin Sexton out of the lineup due to injury, THT is expected to step in and play a prominent role once again. 

He has already proven that he can keep a high fantasy floor when given the minutes, as evidenced by his 37.75 DraftKings points in the game against Memphis. Although he is priced at $5,600 on FanDuel and $4,800 on DraftKings, his opportunity in this matchup makes him a good value play.

On the season, he is averaging 1.02 DKFP per minute, and he could see over 30 minutes of playing time in this game. With the Jazz light on guards, THT is trending towards being one of the more popular plays on the Thursday slate. Keep an eye on him in the upcoming game against the Thunder.

Markelle Fultz DK $6,000 – FD $6,500

Markelle Fultz presents a solid value play in the upcoming game against the Detroit Pistons, despite his recent underperformance. His cheap price in this matchup is simply too good to pass up. The Pistons are ranked 29th in points allowed and defensive efficiency, and they have been surrendering the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing guards this season. In fact, Fultz nearly recorded a triple-double in his last meeting vs these Pistons. He has scored at least 27 DraftKings points in seven straight games, and has averaged 36 fantasy points over those seven games. 

Fultz has been playing major minutes for the Magic, averaging over 33 minutes per game over the last month, and he is putting up solid all-around numbers, including 16.5 points, five rebounds, 4.6 assists, and about 1.8 steals+blocks. Detroit’s poor defense makes Fultz a strong DFS option on tonight’s slate.

Zach Collins, San Antonio Spurs at Dallas Mavericks ($5,600)

Zach Collins could be a solid DFS option in the upcoming game against the Dallas Mavericks. Since Jakob Poeltl was traded, Collins has seen a significant uptick in playing time, contributing solid numbers in every category except blocks.

Despite fluctuations in his usage rate, he has demonstrated his ability as a passer and involvement in the offense, with 5, 6, 4, and 3 assists in his last four games. He is priced at $5,600 on DraftKings and $6,700 on FanDuel, making him a great value play. However, there is some risk that the Spurs could get completely crushed by the Mavericks and the starters lose minutes.

On DraftKings, though, Collins is a pretty easy play, given his starting role and solid recent performances. Over the last four games, he has averaged 16 points and eight rebounds, with his numbers slightly boosted by a great game against the Pistons a couple of weeks ago. Keep an eye on him in the upcoming game against the Mavericks.

We hope our top value picks for NBA DFS have provided you with some great options to consider for your lineups. Remember, DFS success relies on doing your own research and making informed decisions. Keep an eye on these players as the season progresses, and stay on the lookout for new value plays that emerge. Good luck in your DFS contests!
