NBA value plays 12/13/2017 ( @DFSClutchBoy )
Afternoon fellow FanCavers. This is my first time attacking value plays on FanCave so I hope I can do it justice. I will be utilizing Fanduel pricing and will give you at least one guy per position that I like for value (under $5,000). I have now graduated from college and look forward to putting forth an extreme amount of effort into continuing to build FanCave. Let’s get into these values!
D.J. Augustin ($4,000) – Orlando is dealing with a ton of injuries right now with Aaron Gordon, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier all out. Arron Afflalo did not participate in morning shoot around and is listed as questionable for tonight. If Afflalo misses tonight’s game, Augustin could fill in for him as the starting SG, which would increase my love for him even more. Even last game with all of these injuries that Afflalo did play Augustin played 26 minutes and put up 29.9 FDP. He’ll have the ball in his hands more tonight than usual and I expect his value dominance to continue. He is in play in all formats and closer to a lock if Afflalo misses. I am also looking at Shelvin Mack ($4,300) as a value play for Orlando as he played 25 minutes last game amounting for 27.3 FDP. He will also see a boost if Afflalo misses.
Other values: Milos Tedosic ($4,500), Mike James ($4,500), Andrew Harrison ($4,200)
Malcolm Brogdon ($4,700) – Brogdon is another guy who has had to step up due to injuries. The Bucks are without Snell, Terry and Dellavadova leaving their back court pretty thin. Brogdon has amounted at least 25 FDP in 3 straight games and with tonight’s up paced, plus match up I see this continuing. Look for Brogdon to continue to score the ball and leave you a nice floor while doing so. I like Brogdon in all formats tonight.
Other values: Alex Abrines ($3,600), Troy Daniels ($3,500), E’Twaun Moore ($4,600)
Mario Hezonja ($3,700) – Hezonja is yet another guy taking advantage of these Orlando injuries. I won’t go in depth on who’s out as I did above with Mack and Augustin, but I will say that Hezonja played 31 minutes last match up. Any guy under 4K that plays 30+ minutes always deserves a strong look. He was able to put up 21.2 FDP and while I don’t think his ceiling is anything higher than 30 FDP, I think he has a strong enough floor to make him a very solid cash option. Hezonja is a value cash option for tonight.
Chandler Parsons ($4,400) – This dude can straight up ball. It’s always been a matter of if he was healthy enough to do so over the past few years. His minutes are trending upwards and he has seen 21+ minutes in the last 3 games he has played. Washington has always been a team that we pick on with wings and tonight seems like a good angle to do so in tournaments. Parsons makes a very strong tournament option tonight.
Other values: Lance Stephenson ($4,500), Josh Richardson ($4,700), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ($4,800)
Frank Kaminsky ($3,800) – This is a position that I feel the least comfortable with as far as value goes and my favorite play at the position falls right outside the value range with Serge Ibaka. Frank made is return to action in OKC the other night and played 17 minutes and was able to put up 27.5 FDP. His minutes should continue to trend upward with Cody Zeller sidelined and I like his chance to play 20+ minutes tonight. This is a fantastic match up for Kaminsky as it is up paced. Kaminsky is viable in all formats.
Other values: Marvin Williams ($4,900), Trey Lyles (barring injury status; $4,300), Ryan Anderson ($3,600)
Aron Baynes ($3,600) – This one has been pretty obvious for a majority of the day. Without Morris and Horford in the front court for the Celtics Baynes will be called upon. He is one of the best PP$ plays on the slate and is super viable in all formats. If Jokic plays I actually like Baynes even more as he will be needed down low to try to defend the monster.
Other values: Alex Len ($4,900), Thon Maker ($3,600)
