Top NBA DFS Play


Anthony Davis (PF/C, $9,700)

Anthony Davis always needs to be considered when his price is under $10,000, especially in a prime matchup like the one he gets tonight against the San Antonio Spurs. So far this season, San Antonio’s defense has arguably been the worst of the Greg Popovich era.

They rank 28th in efficiency and are the fifth-worst defense in terms of opponent field goal percentage. The Spurs are allowing 116.6 points per game in the month of November.

Davis is scoring 57 DraftKings fantasy points per game over his last three games and the Los Angeles Lakers currently have the fourth-highest implied team total of the 22 teams in action tonight at 114 total points.

In the eight games the Lakers have played with a Vegas implied team total of 112 points or higher this season, AD is averaging 50.6 DraftKings fantasy points per game. At this price, Davis is the strongest value above $9,000.


Value NBA DFS Plays


Malcolm Brogdon (PG/SG, $6,000)

After missing three games with a sore back, Malcolm Brogdon returns to the Indiana Pacers’ lineup tonight. He claims to feel “100 percent,” and Brogdon is returning at the perfect time with a matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies.

So far this season, with rookie Ja Morant at the helm, Memphis is a juicy matchup for opposing point guards. They rank 23rd in defensive efficiency, sixth in pace, and allow the fourth-most DraftKings fantasy points per game to opposing point guards.

On top of this being a plus matchup, Brogdon’s price was recently cut significantly. $6,000 is the cheapest he has been all season. On November 1st, DraftKings priced Brogdon all the way up to $8,800.

He is contributing 39.8 DraftKings fantasy points per game this season, which would be an outstanding 6.6 times value return at his current salary. Fantasy owners most likely won’t see Brogdon this cheap again for the remainder of the season.


Brad Wanamaker (PG/SG, $4,300)

Brad Wanamaker is expected to start tonight at point guard for the Boston Celtics with Kemba Walker doubtful due to a neck sprain. Walker was only able to play 12 minutes on Friday night against the Denver Nuggets. After he exited, Wanamaker filled in for the All-Star, scoring 22 DraftKings fantasy points across 27 minutes.

The former Euro-League player is currently in the midst of his best season as an NBA player. He is supplying 0.93 DraftKings fantasy points per minute, which is a sizable increase from the 0.84 he was averaging a year ago.

Furthermore, Wanamaker is playing great with 25.2 DraftKings fantasy points per game in his last three contests. He should have to log roughly 30 minutes in tonight’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings.

In the five career games that Wanamaker has seen 25 minutes or more, he is generating 28 DraftKings fantasy points per game. Sacramento ranks 21st in defensive efficiency, and Wanamaker should return at least five times value as Boston’s starting point guard.


Spencer Dinwiddie (PG/SG, $7,600)

Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is out again tonight, keeping Dinwiddie as a primary value at only $7,600. His price tag actually dropped $100 since yesterday, when Dinwiddie shined with 42.5 DraftKings fantasy points in a win over the New York Knicks.

Overall, he is producing 41.3 DraftKings fantasy points per game in his last five games without Irving.

Tonight, he is in an ideal matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are currently the seventh-worst rated defense in the league. This game is also expected to be one of the most competitive of Monday’s 11 contests with Cleveland only favored by one point. Expect another 40+ DraftKings fantasy point outing from Dinwiddie.
