Monday’s 10-game main NBA slate on DraftKings was cut short when an individual with the Pistons had an inconclusive COVID-19 test. Five of the six games in Tuesday’s main slate appear to be in the clear, and they’ll all be played if Detroit can take the court against the Utah Jazz in the final game of the night.
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.
Nassir Little, Trail Blazers, $3,100
Little shocked the world by scoring 30 points in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Monday but remains dirt cheap in the main slate. While I don’t think he can replicate the 47 DKFP performance he had in his last outing, his matchup against the worst defense in the NBA bodes well for his production. Little needs to develop, and he’ll play whether the game is close or not because of Portland’s lack of depth. His price hasn’t moved despite shooting 11-for-18 in his first start of the season. I’m locked into this low risk, high reward play.
Jeff Teague, Celtics, $4,500
Teague has been a major disappointment as of late and is shooting just 32 percent from the field, but he will have an opportunity to bounce back in his team’s matchup against the Golden State Warriors. Kemba Walker (knee) hasn’t been himself since returning from injury, and Teague is the most eligible player to relieve him in this matchup. Payton Pritchard (MCL) and Marcus Smart (calf) have been ruled out, and Teague has a clear edge over Carsen Edwards. There are plenty of risks associated with playing Teague, but he’s popped off when Boston is short on guards on multiple occasions this season.
Aron Baynes, Raptors $4,300
Toronto has preferred Baynes to Chris Boucher over the past three games, and the Australian has yielded results with more playing time. He’s reached double-digits in rebounds in back-to-back games and recorded a season-high 16 boards. Aaron Gordon’s knee injury has weakened the Orlando Magic’s frontcourt rotation. Baynes could have a shot at scoring at least 28 DKFP for the third time in four games on Tuesday.
