There will be a ton of NBA action Wednesday, as DraftKings will have 11 games in its main slate. That means there will also be a ton of options for value plays in DFS contests. There’s a lot to consider, but we identified some of the top candidates you should consider here.
NBA DFS value picks for Wednesday February 12th
Malik Beasley, MIN vs CLT, $4,700
Dewayne Dedmon, ATL @ CLE, $4,700
Cheick Diallo, PHO vs. GS, $5,000
— Beasley has found new life since the Denver Nuggets dealt him to the Minnesota Timberwolves ahead of the trade deadline. He’s asserted himself as his new team’s starting shooting guard and is averaging 19 points per game through two appearances with the Timberwolves. He’s also averaging around 30 minutes per contest with Minnesota and should have plenty of opportunities to put up big numbers. He sank seven three-pointers in his debut with Minnesota and should continue to be a serious threat from beyond the arc.
— Dedmon’s return to the the Atlanta Hawks has helped his fantasy value dramatically. The big man has logged a ton of minutes while Clint Capela is out with a heel injury. Bruno Fernando (calf) might continue to be on a 15-minute restriction, and Damian Jones has played sparingly. It’s best to jump on Dedmon now before he’s relegated to the bench following the All-Star break.
— Deandre Ayton is doutbful to play Wednesday because of an ankle injury while Aron Baynes has been ruled out with a hip injury. Frank Kaminsky is also out indefinitely with a patella stress fracture, which means Cheick Diallo could see extended run in a second consecutive start. He struggled on the boards against the Los Angelers Lakers’ frontcourt in his last outing, but still notched 25.5 DKFP while scoring 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting. He shouldn’t face as much of a size disadvantage against the Golden State Warriors Marquese Chriss and could play around 40 minutes because of the Suns’ lack of depth.
