NBA DFS value plays under $5K for Tuesday, January 26th

We go over some top bargain options under $5K on DraftKings for Tuesday’s game slate.

The main slate is tiny on Tuesday, and there are only three games scheduled. There are fewer options than usual, so duplicate lineups could be a lot more common. That being said, it is a great time to give you some value plays for DFS contests. Unlike NFL DFS, where one pick can make or break your lineup, or it’s tough to find quality low-tier value.

In NBA DFS, you can find quality value plays under $5K that can give you a quick 10 points off the bench, grab some rebounds, or stuff the stat sheet. It does not matter if you are playing a 50/50 or Double Up contest; we will provide you with three players that you need to put in your lineup.

Marcus Morris Sr., Los Angeles Clippers, $4,700

The Clippers will need shot makers while Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are out because of health protocols, and that bodes well for the production of a trigger-happy forward like Morris. He ranks fourth in points per game with 10.8 despite ranking seventh in minutes per game. He’ll likely step into the starting lineup to fill in for George and has the range to play small or power forward.

Robin Lopez, Washington Wizards, $4,900

Lopez’s ceiling has been raised significantly by Thomas Bryant’s season-ending injury. While he’s been off the radar for a while because of the Wizards’ Covid-19 outbreak, he’s scored at least 25 DKFP in two straight games and won’t have a legitimate backup with Moritz Wagner ruled out. Lopez has an opportunity to get a ton of run for a Washington team that’s missing many bodies, and the absence of Christian Wood (ankle) will make rebounding and scoring in the post easier on him.

Jerome Robinson, Washington Wizards, $4,000

It’s hard to stay away from the Wizards in this slate. Robinson is a guard by trade but will likely continue to start alongside Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. He chucked up 15 shots in 35 minutes his last time out and scored 16 points. If he gets a little more efficient, he could return a ton of value. One pivot to keep an eye on is Garrison Matthews ($4,200), who played 33 minutes off the bench on Sunday and posted a stat line similar to Robinson’s. Any player who crosses the 30-minute mark for under $5K is worth taking a look at.
