We have nine games on tap for Wednesday night, with a double-header on ESPN. At 7:30 p.m. ET, the Atlanta Hawks will take on the Dallas Mavericks followed by the Milwaukee Bucks playing the Phoenix Suns at 10 p.m. ET. It is a good time to give you some value plays for your DFS contest.
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 are going to provide you with three players that you need to put in your lineup.
Bobby Portis, Milwaukee Bucks, $4900
Bobby Portis has been one of the better underrated free-agent signings this season for the Milwaukee Bucks. The veteran big man is almost averaging a triple-double off the bench at 11.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. He’s also a good value play in DFS, producing 24.9 DKFP per game.
In the Bucks’ last five games, Portis is averaging 28.3 fantasy points, which includes two 40-plus point outings. On Wednesday night, the Bucks are going against a Phoenix team that ranks 17th against PF/Cs (OPRK).
Cam Reddish, Atlanta Hawks, $4800
There is a ton of great and good guard plays in DFS on Wednesday, meaning the cupboard is sort of thin once you get below the $5K threshold. However, if you are looking for a low-risk, high-reward play, then Cam Reddish should be on your radar.
After scoring less than 10 points in three-straight games, the second-year guard has now turned in back-to-back double-digit performances. On Saturday night against the Raptors, Reddish had 10 points, five rebounds, an assists for 18.3 DKFP. He’ll be going up against a Mavericks team that ranks 14th against SG/SFs (OPRK) this season.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Los Angeles Lakers, $3800
Caldwell-Pope is a deep sleeper DFS play on Wednesday night’s nine-game slate. At a paltry $3800 salary, the veteran wing is only averaging 9.1 points and 16.7 DKFP per game. In the Lakers’ last four games, KCP is producing 16.3 fantasy points per game, which is close to his season average. Los Angeles is playing the Thunder for the second time in two days. When they played on Monday night, Caldwell-Pope had 17.5 fantasy points (8 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists).
