NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Thursday 3/9/23
Cam Thomas DK $4,600 – FD $4,700
One player to watch out for in Thursday’s NBA DFS slate is Cam Thomas, a PG/SG for the Brooklyn Nets. Despite having a standout performance as the best scorer in the NBA earlier in the season, Thomas has since fallen out of the rotation. However, with multiple players including Dinwiddie, Claxton, O’Neale, Johnson, and Simmons expected to be out, Thomas may get his chance to shine once again.
With limited options on the Nets roster, Thomas is a strong candidate to start and play for 30-plus minutes. In the 11 games where he played over 25 minutes this season, he has averaged an impressive 37 points. At his current price point of $4,600 on DraftKings and $4,700 on FanDuel, Thomas has the potential to be the best value play of the night if he delivers another high-scoring performance.

Kris Dunn DK $5,700 – FD $5,600
One player to consider for Thursday’s NBA DFS slate is Kris Dunn, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers and will be facing off against the Orlando Magic. With a price tag of $5,600 on FanDuel and $5,700 on DraftKings, Dunn is a stable option for DFS players looking for reliable value. While Tyus Jones may be a tempting choice with Ja Morant out, his high price point makes Dunn a more appealing pick for those seeking steady production.
Dunn has the potential to provide 5.5x value with Conley gone and Sexton out. Dunn remains a strong choice, especially if Clarkson does not return. Dunn’s reliability and potential value make him a top option for DFS players looking for the best value plays on Thursday, March 9th.

Day’Ron Sharpe DK $3,000 – FD $4,400
Although the Nets are facing a tough matchup, their short-handed situation creates an opportunity for value, and Sharpe is a prime candidate to provide that value. With Nic Claxton already ruled out, Sharpe is likely to get a start, and although he can be volatile, his low price point of $3,000 on DraftKings makes him an attractive pick.
When given the opportunity, Sharpe has been productive on a fantasy points per-minute basis. In his last start he played 28 minutes and finished with eight points, 12 rebounds, and 26 fantasy points. Even if he delivers just 20 fantasy points on DraftKings, Sharpe’s value will be worth the investment. So, don’t let the tough matchup discourage you, if Sharpe starts, he could be one of the best value plays of the night.
Mark Williams DK $6,000 – FD $5,500
Williams has been thriving in his role as the starting center since Mason Plumlee was traded, averaging 29 DK points per game across his last 11 outings. In seven of those games, he has scored at least 29 fantasy points, showcasing his ability to deliver solid production on a regular basis.
Despite his impressive per-minute averages, Williams is surprisingly cheap with a price tag of $6,000 on DraftKings and $5,500 on FanDuel. To top it off, he is facing off against the Detroit Pistons, who rank 28th in defensive efficiency and 29th in points allowed. All of these factors make Williams an attractive pick for DFS players looking for the best value plays on Thursday, March 9th.
