Top NBA DFS value plays on DraftKings for Jan. 24

We go over some top bargain options $5K or under for Friday’s main 10-game slate.

We’ve got a 10-game main slate on DraftKings following the first regular-season NBA game in France between the Bucks and Hornets. Here, we’ll be taking a look at some value plays to help you save salary in your DFS lineup on DraftKings. Here’s the full rundown of value plays for Friday.

NBA DFS value picks for Friday, January 24th

Myles Turner, IND @ GSW, $4,900
T.J. McConnell, IND @ GSW, $4,900
Dewayne Dedmon, SAC vs. CHI, $4,600
Aaron Holiday, IND @ GSW, $4,500
Torrey Craig, DEN @ NOP, $4,400
Luguentz Dort, OKC vs. ATL, $3,300
Chandler Hutchison, CHI @ SAC, $3,300
PJ Dozier, DEN @ NOP, $3,100

— I think the most clear place to find value on this slate is on the Indiana Pacers. Malcolm Brogdon is sidelined and there are a ton of Pacers priced under $5K with upside against the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs don’t play defense and are bad on the glass. Turner should do work down low, while McConnell and Holiday are both good values filling in for Brogdon. McConnell may start, but Holiday will be more trendy.

— The Sacramento Kings are dealing with a ton of injuries in the front court, so I like Dedmon again. Last game with Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes both out, Dedmon had a double-double and reached 30 fantasy points. The Bulls are a poor rebounding team and are without their best interior defender in Wendell Carter Jr.

— The Nuggets are ravaged by injuries, so I think this is a great spot for value here. Gary Harris and Michael Porter Jr. may return, but Jamal Murray, Mason Plumlee and Paul Millsap remain out. Craig has been starting in the front court at the 3 with Will Barton moving to SG with Murray out. Dozier has been getting run off the bench as the backup PG to Monte Morris ($5,000) with Harris and Murray sidelined.
