We have seven games on Tuesday night, with a double-header featured on TNT. At 7:30 p.m. ET, the Houston Rockets will take on the New Orleans Pelicans followed by the Boston Celtics playing the Utah Jazz 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.
Anfernee Simons, Portland Trail Blazers, $4700
The 21-year-old guard has to back-to-back solid performances for the undermanned Portland Trail Blazers. On Saturday against the Knicks, Simons racked up 12 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3pt), three rebounds, and a rebound for 20.8 DKFP. Then in the previous game against the Sixers last week, he scored 20.8 points (14 points, two assists, and a rebound). Simons has provided a nice spark off the bench for the Blazers. It would not be surprised to see him go over the 20 fantasy points threshold on Tuesday as the Magic are ranked 14th against PG/SGs (OPRK).
Shake Milton, Philadelphia 76ers, $4300
The 24-year-old combo guard has started to play better as of late for the Sixers. Against the Nets on Saturday, Milton scored 25 DKFP at a $4400 salary (15 points, four rebounds, three assists). He has now scored at least 10 points or more and averaging 21.2 DKFP per game in the Sixers’ last three games. On Tuesday night, he’ll be going against a Kings team that is ranked 16th against PG/SGs (OPRK) and allowed opponents to shoot 47.8 percent from the field (26th in NBA).
Danuel House Jr., Houston Rockets, $4300
On Monday night, House played solid in a spot start for starting point guard John Wall. The 27-year-old had 13 points, three rebounds, and two assists in 30 minutes. He scored 20.3 fantasy points as well, making it third-straight games that House has gone over 20 fantasy points.
In the Rockets’ last five games, the wing player is averaging 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 27.7 minutes per game. He is also shooting 41.3 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the arc. House will likely play significant minutes on Tuesday night as Victor Oladipo is out.
