The Best Bang for Your Buck in NBA DFS – 10/30/21

The Best Bang for Your Buck in NBA DFS - 10:30:21

Point Guards:

  1. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander $7,300 at Golden State (26th)
  2. D’Angelo Russell $6,800 vs. Denver (18th)
  3. Cole Anthony $6,400 at Detroit (8th)
  4. Lonzo Ball $7,600 vs. Utah (3rd)
  5. Nickeil Alexander-Walker $6,500 vs. New York (22nd)
  6. Kyle Lowry $7,100 at Memphis (30th)
  7. Ja Morant $9,400 vs. Miami (12th)
  8. Trae Young $9,600 at Philadelphia (13th)
  9. Steph Curry $10,900 vs. Oklahoma City (22nd)
  10. Dejounte Murray $8,500 at Milwaukee (15th)

The Assist: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is becoming a flat-out NBA superstar right before our very eyes. $7,300 is too low of an asking price for a player who can stuff the stat sheet the way SGA can. D’Angelo Russell arguably played his best game of the season in his last one. A player like Russell thrives off confidence—roll him back out there again in this one. Cole Anthony is one of the sneakier plays at the PG position. A player who can drop 20 points on any given night for just $6,400 is stealing.

Shooting Guards:

  1. Devin Booker $7,800 vs. Cleveland (2nd)
  2. Anthony Edwards $7,800 vs. Denver (5th)
  3. Tyler Herro $6,600 at Memphis (30th)
  4. Collin Sexton $6,400 at Phoenix (11th)
  5. Derrick White $6,400 at Milwaukee (15th)
  6. Donovan Mitchell $8,700 at Chicago (15th)
  7. Zach LeVine $8,200 vs. Utah (8th)
  8. Fred VanVleet $8,100 at Indiana (27th)
  9. Jordan Poole $6,200 vs. Oklahoma City (12th)
  10. Chris Duarte $5,600 vs. Toronto (17th)

The Assist: Devin Booker remains my favorite play at the SG position given his tendency to shoot the slate out on any given night. You may get tired of hearing me mention Anthony Edwards, but that doesn’t make me wrong. Edwards remains one of the best values on the slate at any position. Tyler Herro continues to play strong minutes and he gets a Memphis team that is dead last in the NBA against perimeter scorers.

Small Forwards:

  1. OG Anunoby $6,900 at Indiana (26th)
  2. Khris Middleton $7,800 vs. San Antonio (14th)
  3. DeMar DeRozan $7,700 vs. Utah (15th)
  4. Andrew Wiggins $6,400 vs. Oklahoma City (9th)
  5. Evan Fournier $6,000 at New Orleans (6th)
  6. Will Barton $5,900 at Minnesota (30th)
  7. RJ Barrett $5,600 at New Orleans (6th)
  8. Jimmy Butler $8,600 at Memphis (27th)
  9. Brandon Ingram $8,300 vs. New York (25th)
  10. Michael Porter Jr. $6,500 at Minnesota (2nd)

The Assist: It is time to put some respect on OG Anunoby’s name. The OG is continuing to become a more featured option in the Raptors’ offense. Khris Middleton struggled in his last outing. I would anticipate a bounce-back performance from Middleton against San Antonio. Do not let the final shot (an airball) that DeMar DeRozan took dissuade you from playing him in DFS again. DeRozan is averaging over 20 points per game this season.

Power Forwards:

  1. Evan Mobley $6,700 at Phoenix (11th)
  2. Draymond Green $7,300 vs. Oklahoma City (26th)
  3. Wendell Carter Jr. $5,800 at Detroit (29th)
  4. Jerami Grant $6,700 vs. Orlando (28th)
  5. Julius Randle $9,800 at New Orleans (3rd)
  6. Tobias Harris $8,400 vs. Atlanta (22nd)
  7. Brandon Ingram $8,300 vs. New York (25th)
  8. Giannis Antetokounmpo $11,400 vs. San Antonio (27th)
  9. Domantas Sabonis $9,200 vs. Toronto (13th)
  10. Saddiq Bey $6,900 vs. Orlando (12th)

The Assist: We will continue to bang the drum for rookie Evan Mobley. The guy is closer to averaging a double-double this early in his pro career. The sky is the limit for Mobley, and he only costs you $6,700. Draymond Green was effective as a DFS play in his last game, and he only scored four points. Green remains a unicorn in fantasy, and if he gives you a plus-offensive night, he is a slate game-changer. Coming into the season, it was fair to wonder how the youthful frontcourt of the Orlando Magic would gel. Wendell Carter Jr. has shown us in the early going that not only can he co-exist, but that he can thrive.


  1. Jakob Poeltl $6,900 at Milwaukee (12th)
  2. John Collins $6,600 at Philadelphia (3rd)
  3. DeAndre Ayton $6,500 vs. Cleveland (21st)
  4. Jared Jackson Jr. $6,700 vs. Miami (12th)
  5. Bam Adebayo $7,700 at Memphis (20th)

The Assist:  It is high time we throw some love to Jakob Poeltl. Poeltl is playing very well for the Spurs and has an established role. John Collins is similarly underappreciated by the DFS community. $6,600 for his level of production is absurd. We told you that DeAndre Ayton was going to turn it up soon, and right on cue, Ayton had a big night. Stick with Ayton before you see a jump in his price tag.
