NBA DraftKings DFS Values | 3/7/18
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 nice 7-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!
Isaiah Thomas vs. ORL ($6,000)
I know that Thomas is coming off of the bench for the Lakers but I’ve got faith that he can meet value for this slate of games. Over his last three outings, Thomas has scored 30+ FP for his loyal owners. So far this year, he has averaged 15.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game for Los Angeles. This season, the Magic rank 27th overall at defending against opposing point guards.
D.J. Austine @ LAL ($5,000)
I really like Augustine’s price tag for this slate in a great matchup against the Lakers! So far this season, Los Angeles ranks 28th overall at defending against opposing point guards. In three of his last five outings, Augustine has scored 27+ FP for his owners. This year, he’s averaging 9.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game for Orlando. Over his last five games, Augustine has recorded 29+ minutes for his squad.
Joe Ingles vs. IND ($5,900)
Ingles has been very productive off of the wing for Utah as of late! He’s hitting plenty of three-pointers, averaging 14.1 points, 4.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game since the beginning of February. So far this season, the Pacers rank 13th overall at defending against opposing shooting guards. This year, Ingles has managed to average a cool 25.3 FPPG for his loyal owners.
Evan Fournier @ LAL ($5,700)
Fournier has been somewhat consistent this season but draws a fantastic matchup for Wednesday’s slate of games. So far this year, the Lakers rank 21st overall at defending against opposing shooting guards. This season, Fournier has averaged 17.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per outing for the Magic. You can expect every bit of 30 minutes from Fournier so get him into your lineups for this slate.
David Nwaba vs. MEM ($5,500)
Coach Hoiberg announced on Sunday that Nwaba will start for Chicago the next five games. Since the All-Star break, he’s played at least 31 minutes per outing, averaging 12.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game during that time span. So far this year, the Grizzlies rank 23rd overall at defending against opposing small forwards. Nwaba isn’t the most attractive DFS option but he should do just fine on Wednesday evening.
Wilson Chandler vs. CLE ($5,200)
The month of February was very good to Chandler so I’m hoping it spills over into March! In four of his last eight outings, Chandler has scored 37+ FP for his loyal owners and draws a juicy matchup for this slate. So far this season, the Cavaliers rank 28th overall at defending at opposing small forwards. This year, Chandler has averaged 9.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game for Denver.
Lauri Markkanen vs. MEM ($5,900)
There truly isn’t a ton of great games to target for this slate so we may be forced to get some Chicago guys into our lineups. So far this year, the Grizzlies rank 21st overall at defending against opposing power forwards. This season, Markkanen has managed to average a super solid 29.3 FPPG for his DFS owners. This year, he’s averaging 14.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game for the Bulls.
Skal Labissiere vs. NOP ($5,500)
Labissiere has been playing some solid basketball thus far in the month of March! In all three of his games this month, Skal has posted double-digit scoring efforts. He’s logging plenty of minutes these days, playing 29+ over the last three outings for Sacramento. So far this season, the Pelicans rank 16th overall at defending against opposing power forwards.
Jonas Valanciunas @ DET ($5,500)
The center position is looking rather bad for this slate of games when it comes to value options. If Andre Drummond gets into early foul trouble, Valancinuas could end up putting in a nice stat line. So far this year, he’s averaging 11.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game for the Raptors. This season, the Pistons rank 19th overall at defending against opposing centers.
Brook Lopez vs. ORL ($4,800)
I’m going to go out on the limb and say that this game will be my favorite to target from a value perspective. Yes, Lopez is super inconsistent but you can’t deny how great of a matchup this is for him. So far this season, the Magic rank 26th overall at defending against opposing centers. This year, Lopez is averaging 11.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per outing for the Lakers.
