THE DAILY: The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS

THE DAILY- The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS

Point Guards:

  1. Lonzo Ball $7,100 at Toronto (3rd)
  2. Ricky Rubio $6,000 at Denver (18th)
  3. Collin Sexton $6,700 at Denver (18th)
  4. DeAngelo Russell $7,300 vs. New Orleans (17th)
  5. Damien Lillard $9,300 at Los Angeles Clippers (28th)
  6. Malcolm Brogdon $7,900 vs. Milwaukee (12th)
  7. Trae Young $9,300 vs. Detroit (7th)
  8. James Harden $9,500 vs. Washington (20th)
  9. Fred VanVleet $7,600 vs. Chicago (2nd)
  10. Spencer Dinwiddie $7,000 at Brooklyn (15th)

The Assist: Lonzo Ball at $7,100 remains a modest price—keep playing Ball before the price rises. Darius Garland is questionable for tonight’s game. I expect Garland to miss this one and for Ricky Rubio to step into the starter’s minutes. Collin Sexton is still one of the top players per dollar on the slate regardless of position.

Shooting Guards:

  1. Anthony Edwards $7,500 vs. New Orleans (8th)
  2. Tyler Herro $6,400 vs. Orlando (10th)
  3. CJ McCollum $7,500 at Los Angeles Clippers (15th)
  4. Zach Levine $8,400 at Toronto (17th)
  5. Nickeil Alexander-Walker $6,700 vs. Minnesota (23rd)
  6. Bradley Beal $9,200 at Brooklyn (1st)
  7. Jaylen Brown $7,900 at Charlotte (20th)
  8. Eric Bledsoe $6,000 vs. Portland (23rd)
  9. Terry Rozier $6,300 vs. Boston (28th)
  10. Kelly Oubre Jr. $5,700 vs. Boston (9th)

The Assist: Anthony Edwards can give you as much bang for your buck as anyone on the slate. Edwards is developing into a ‘go to’ player for the Wolves. If you’re looking for a cheap play on the slate, Tyler Herro can get as hot as anyone and at $6,400 is worth the upside play. You know what you are getting from CJ McCollum and at $7,500 you can slide him into your lineup and have no concerns.

Small Forwards:

  1. Kyle Kuzma $6,700 at Brooklyn (23rd)
  2. Saddiq Bey $6,600 at Atlanta (25th)
  3. Michael Porter Jr. $6,000 vs. Cleveland (24th)
  4. Paul George $10,100 vs. Portland (15th)
  5. Kevin Durant $10,200 vs. Washington (16th)
  6. Jayson Tatum $8,700 at Charlotte (20th)
  7. Jimmy Butler $8,800 vs. Orlando (2nd)
  8. Demar Derozan $7,300 at Toronto (25th)
  9. Brandon Ingram $8,300 at Minnesota (5th)
  10. Khris Middleton $7,200 at Indiana (29th)

The Assist: Kyle Kuzma is quickly establishing himself as a leader in the Wizards locker room and on the court. I love the $6,700 price for Kuzma on the slate. Saddiq Bey may be playing above his head for Detroit early on but ride the wave while it lasts. At only $6,000 see if you can catch lightning in a bottle with Michael Porter Jr.

Power Forwards:

  1. Miles Bridges $7,100 vs. Boston (8th)
  2. Giannis Antetokounmpo $10,400 at Indiana (5th)
  3. Domantas Sabonis $9,900 vs. Milwaukee (3rd)
  4. Evan Mobley $7,200 at Denver (14th)
  5. Gordon Hayward $6,900 vs. Boston (8th)
  6. Jerami Grant $6,300 at Atlanta (22nd)
  7. Jason Collins $6,400 vs. Detroit (29th)
  8. Scottie Barnes $5,900 vs. Chicago (28th)
  9. OG Anunoby $6,300 vs. Chicago (23rd)
  10. PJ Washington $5,600 vs. Boston (29th)

The Assist: Miles Bridges continues to play a vital role for Charlotte and is a value play at the Power Forward position. You must pay up for Giannis—but if you can afford it, you know that he is worth it. Domantas Sabonis looks like he is taking his game to new heights.


  1. Karl-Anthony Towns $9,700 vs. New Orleans (19th)
  2. Bam Adebayo $8,100 vs. Orlando (10th)
  3. Jonas Valanciunas $7,900 at Minnesota (20th)
  4. Clint Capela $6,800 vs. Detroit (29th)
  5. Nikola Jokic $11,000 vs. Cleveland (16th)

The Assist: If you cannot afford Nikola Jokic, settling for KAT at $1,300 cheaper is a nice way to anchor your Center position. Bam Adebayo should be able to feast on an Orlando frontcourt who will struggle to deal with his physicality. Jonas Valanciunas continues to be one of the better bargain plays at the Center position for only $7,900.
