NBA Value Plays 4/6 – Less Grizzlies More Value
- Plays are based solely on opposition and pricing.
- FanDuel and DraftKings prices listed respectively.
• Point Guard
Tyler Ennis [ $4,400 / $3,900 ] With both Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram ruled out for tonight’s game, Tyler Ennis should be in line to see some extra run, as he’s played 22+ minutes in each of his previous 2 games, while scoring 10 points and 5+ assists in both. Minnesota has allowed opponents to shoot an average of 47.7% from the floor (29th) and 36.7% from deep (19th) and possesses an awful 108.8 team defensive rating (25th).
• Shooting Guard
Ben McLemore [ $3,800 / $4,100 ] The Grizzlies will be without 7 players, many of which are productive, meaning, there’s a lot of value to go around and Ben McLemore fits into that role nicely and should be one of the safest out of the lot that are active. Over his prior 3 outings, McLemore has played 23+ minutes per game and put up 19.3+ FanDuel points and has a great matchup against the Kings’ 28th ranked team defense.
• Small Forward
MarShon Brooks [ $4,800 / $5,200 ] Although a bit more expensive than McLemore, on both sites, MarShon Brooks has been fantastic since joining the roster, as he’s put up a consistent 21+ points per game and has gotten better over his 3 matches played. Sacramento allows opponents to shoot an average of 47.2% from the field (27th), as well as a whopping 38.2% from three-point range (30th), further opening up Brooks.
• Power Forward
Ivan Rabb [ $4,100 / $4,000 ] Listed as the only healthy power forward, Ivan Rabb is a strong candidate to see heavy minutes, as he’s played 23+ minutes in his past 2 outings and has gone for 21.6 and 21.4 FanDuel point efforts, with double digit performances. The Kings place 27th among the league in rebounding percentage at just 48.2, but are a fairly solid team on the inside, which could limit Rabb; nonetheless, he’s a safe roster.
Alex Len [ $4,800 / $5,100 ] While it’s not necessarily a given that Alex Len will see good run, even with Tyson Chandler and Alan Williams out, he does have a pretty nice matchup against New Orleans, who allow an average of 47.5 points in the paint (26th). Throughout the season, Len has shown that he can be productive when he’s on the court, as he’s put up 34.3+ FanDuel points in the last 2 games he’s played 27+ minutes.
