NBA DFS Top Value Plays for Thursday 4/6/23
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves for an NBA spectacle unlike any other—an extravaganza of, let’s say, “strategic losing.” In one corner, we have the Portland Trail Blazers, a team that’s taken a spectacular nosedive and probably couldn’t find the hoop with a GPS. In the other corner, the San Antonio Spurs, a squad that’s putting the “defensive” in “defensive efficiency” by ranking dead last. So, why should you care? Well, amidst this carnival of calamity lies a beacon of hope for your NBA DFS lineup: Skylar Mays!
Introducing Skylar Mays, the PG/SG wonder for the Blazers, who’s been priced at a humble $6,400 on DraftKings and $6,000 on FanDuel. Skylar’s recent promotion from the G-League to the starting point guard position is the basketball equivalent of finding a golden ticket in your chocolate bar. He’s been lighting it up, folks, with at least 28 DraftKings points in his last three games and a jaw-dropping 49-pointer that probably had the Blazers’ front office reconsidering their tanking strategy.
Now, you might be thinking, “The Blazers are already eliminated, so who cares?” Well, my dear reader, that’s precisely the point! With the starters lounging on the sidelines and a handful of players carrying the “questionable” tag like a fashion statement, Skylar is stepping into the limelight. Averaging 17 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per game, he’s become the fantasy darling we didn’t know we needed. Did I mention he’s playing against the Spurs? Yes, the same Spurs that probably couldn’t defend a paper bag.
But wait, there’s more! This matchup, which could very well be remembered as the “Clash of the Tankers,” holds special significance for Skylar. The former LSU star from Baton Rouge is headed back to his home turf, and he’s bound to put on a show for the locals. It’s a road trip, but with some home cooking!
In conclusion, Skylar Mays is your ticket to NBA DFS glory in a game that’s sure to be a, uh, “thrilling” contest between two teams racing to the bottom. After all, someone has to score, and we’re banking on Skylar to be that someone. Consider him a core play in all formats tonight, and enjoy the ride!
Ladies and gentlemen, gather ’round for the most marvelous of revelations: the Cleveland Cavaliers have found the secret to winning in the NBA Playoffs—don’t play your starters! Yes, you heard it here first, the Cavs are resting their starting lineup, transforming the court into a magical land called Value Town, where DFS dreams come true.
Enter the maestro of Value Town, Ricky Rubio, the PG for the Cavs. He’s priced at a modest $3,100 on DraftKings and $4,500 on FanDuel—a true bargain, if you ask me. You see, Rubio was once a luxurious $7K player, but now he’s gracing us with his presence at a discount. It’s like finding a designer suit at a thrift store!
Now, you might think, “What’s the catch?” Well, the catch is that Rubio is poised to be the star of the show. With the Cavaliers comfortably locked into the four seed and their relevant players lounging in their street clothes, Rubio is the chosen one, likely to ascend to the starting point guard throne. And let me tell you, he’s not just any point guard. Oh no, Rubio is a sneaky triple-double wizard who could handle the ball on every possession while playing a whopping 40 minutes. We’re talking about a man who’s averaging 0.89 DKFP per minute, putting Raul Neto‘s 0.71 to shame.
Behold, basketball aficionados, a tale of wonder and intrigue: the meteoric rise of Sandro Mamukelashvili, the power forward for the San Antonio Spurs! A mere month ago, the Spurs signed this enigmatic figure, and my, what a whirlwind romance it’s been. Sandro, the Seton Hall legend, has been sprinkling DraftKings points like fairy dust, racking up at least 24 in eight of his last 10 games. With a 27-point average to his name, he’s become the toast of the town, all for the bargain prices of $5,800 on DraftKings and $5,600 on FanDuel.
But wait, there’s more to this enchanting tale! Sandro’s role is ascending like a hot air balloon, and the final week of the season promises to be a veritable feast of fantasy delight. You see, the Spurs are set to face the Portland Trail Blazers, a team so generous that they rank fifth in surrendering fantasy points to opposing power forwards. How charitable!
Now, I must confess, I’m as baffled as you are about who will start at center for Portland or Denver. Will it be Jokic? Watford? A sentient mop? The possibilities are endless! But let’s not get lost in the details. The important thing is that, in the off chance that neither Jokic nor Watford graces the court, we’ll have to pivot our attention. And who better to steal the spotlight than our hero Sandro? There’s no earthly reason for the Spurs to deploy Zach Collins when they’ve got Sandro, the value play extraordinaire.
So, dear DFS enthusiasts, stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for Sandro Mamukelashvili, the enigmatic PF who’s set to dazzle us all!
Gather ’round, noble fans of the noblest sport—basketball! For today, we present to you a tale of fantasy and valor, starring none other than Tre Jones, the point guard for the San Antonio Spurs. Behold, a team that has bravely decided to rest nearly every player in their starting lineup, leaving Jones as the last hero standing. What courage! What audacity!
And what, pray tell, has our intrepid hero accomplished? Why, he’s been on a fantasy rampage, the likes of which we’ve rarely seen! Scoring at least 24 DK points in 11 consecutive games, Tre Jones has achieved basketball immortality. With 39 and 52 DraftKings points in his two most recent outings, he’s proven himself a master of the craft, outshining Johnson and Vassell, who, alas, are nowhere to be found.
But lo, a formidable challenge awaits! The Spurs are set to face the Portland Trail Blazers, a team of such defensive prowess that they’ve achieved the rank of 27th in defensive efficiency ratings. How will our hero fare against such daunting odds? Well, fear not, for this is a dream scenario for fantasy enthusiasts! The game is expected to be close, high-scoring, and features not one, but two of the worst defenses in the league. It’s like a Shakespearean comedy, except with more slam dunks.
Tre Jones, our beacon of hope, has been a model of consistency, averaging over 30 fantasy points per game. He’s even displayed his courtly grace with a triple-double against the Kings on Sunday—a feat that surely left the Kings feeling quite un-royal. While his price may be rising like a hot soufflé, so too is the opportunity, as he faces a Blazers defense that generously allows the second-most fantasy points to guards.
So, fantasy lords and ladies, prepare your lineups and fire up Tre Jones in all formats. For tonight, we shall revel in the fantastical feats of our basketball hero, Tre Jones of House Spurs!
