We’ve got a four-game main slate in the NBA on DraftKings for Sunday, and there are several quality value plays you should consider for DFS contests. Let’s take a look at some salary-saving options to consider for your lineup on DraftKings tonight.

Enes Kanter, C, BOS vs. CHA ($4,900)

The Celtics are a middle-of-the-road rebounding team but Kanter has been excellent on the glass as of late. The big is averaging 32.5 DKFP in his last three appearances and has grabbed 40 boards during that span. The Hornets are one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA this year, so look for Kanter to have a field day.

Gary Harris, SG, DEN vs. LAL ($4,500)

Gary Harris has found a rhythm this year. The Nuggets shooting guard hasn’t finished with less than 20 DKFP in seven straight games. As a starter averaging more than 32 minutes per contest, Harris is one of the best options you’ll find for under $5,000. He floor is relatively high and theres a chance he could explode for a big night every game.

T.J. Warren, SF/PF, IND vs. MIL ($5,000)

Warren had a poor showing against Charlotte earlier this week and has then gotten himself back on track. He generated 33 DKFP in his last after scoring 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting in his last outing and is averaging 17.8 points per game on the year. Warren is doubling the offensive production of most other players around his price range, so he’s worth a play for sure.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, SG, LAL vs. DEN ($4,000)

KCP is averaging 25 minutes per game for the season but has averaged 30 minutes per contest over the course of his last five games. During that stretch he is averaging 13.8 points — nearly five points higher than his season average. It isn’t easy to find production like this at such a low price, so strike while the iron’s hot.
