What’s up, GF2 fans! I’m back at it again this season bringing you guys some solid NBA values for the Wednesday night slate of games! This slate will consist of a massive 11-game schedule to play with. Each week the majority of my value plays will be at or under the $6,000 price range. Let’s get this DFS party started!
Jordan Clarkson vs. PHI ($4,800)
I was high on Clarkson going into his contest on Monday night with Phoenix and I wasn’t disappointed! He finished that game with 25 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 26 minutes of action. So far this season, Clarkson has managed to average a cool 23.8 FPPG for his owners. This year, the Sixers rank 7th overall at defending against opposing point guards.
Dejounte Murray @ MIN ($4,600)
The Spurs are going to playing their second game of a back-to-back, so some of the older players could rest versus Minnesota. I like Murray in this spot, matching up against Jeff Teague on Wednesday evening. So far this year, the Wolves rank 30th overall at defending against opposing point guards. This season, Murray has averaged a solid 21.6 FPPG for his loyal owners.
Jeremy Lamb vs. CLE ($5,700)
If there is one defense to stream against these days, it’s the Cavaliers who don’t even try anymore. So far this season, Cleveland ranks 27th overall at defending against opposing shooting guards. I actually have a lot of interest in this game and expect Lamb to easy hit value for this slate. This year, he’s managed to average a super solid 29.9 FPPG for his DFS owners.
Joe Ingles @ NY ($5,500)
I’ve been expecting another guy to step up besides Derrick Favors for this Jazz squad, so I’m hoping Ingles pays off for this slate. So far in 2017, Ingles has averaged 9.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.7 steals per outing for Utah. This season, the Knicks rank 24th overall at defending against opposing shooting guards. This is a game where I expect the Jazz to be able to put up some points for our lineup.
Thaddeus Young @ MEM ($5,700)
Young seems to do slightly better in slower-paced games, which is exactly what he gets for this slate! So far this season, the Grizzlies rank 30th overall at defending against opposing small forwards, which makes this play also intriguing. This year, Young has managed to average a gorgeous 27.5 FPPG for his owners. This season, he’s averaging 13.6 points and 6.0 rebounds per outing for Indiana.
J.J. Redick @ LAL ($4,800)
Redick always has a solid chance of crushing value in the right matchup! For this slate, he’ll be taking on a Lakers squad that ranks 23rd overall at defending against opposing small forwards. Redick gets plenty of playing time for Philly, going at least 30 minutes in 10 of their 11 first games. So far this year, he’s managed to average a beautiful 26.2 FPPG for his owners.
Zach Randolph @ ATL ($5,200)
I don’t mind having a small amount of exposure to Randolph who is going up against a lackluster group of Atlanta post players. So far this year, the Hawks rank just 14th overall at defending against opposing power forwards. This season, Randolph has managed to average a cool 24.3 FPPG for his owners. In five of his last six games, Randolph has scored 26+ FP.
Dario Saric @ LAL ($4,600)
If I was to use recency bias, Saric could be a solid option for this slate of games. I really expected him to flourish on Monday night versus the Suns but he lets us down in 34 minutes of action. Well, for this slate, he’s going up against a Lakers squad that ranks 24th overall at defending against opposing power forwards. This season, Saric has managed to average a moderate 20.3 FPPG for his owners.
Marcin Gortat @ MIA ($5,400)
Gortat has been fairly consistent this season and draws a juicy matchup for Wednesday night’s slate of games. So far this season, the Heat rank 22nd overall at defending against opposing centers. This year, Gortat has managed to average a nice 26.0 FPPG for his loyal owners. In 2017, he’s averaging 11.2 points and 8.6 rebounds per outing for the Wizards.
Dewayne Dedmon vs. SAS ($5,100)
If Dedmon receives 20+ minutes in this contest, I expect him to easily hit value. So far this season, the Kings rank 26th overall at defending against opposing centers, which sets up well for the Hawks big men. This year, Dedmon has managed to average a solid 23.3 FPPG for his owners. In two of his last four games, Dedmon has scored 28+ FP.
