We go over the top value plays in Sunday’s six-game NBA main slate on DraftKings.

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.

Kevin Porter Jr., Houston Rockets, $5,000

The Rockets are letting KPJ show them what he’s capable of. The second-year wing is averaging 45 DKFP through his first two games with Houston and is averaging 20 points, 4 rebounds, and 9 assists per game. Everyone knew he could score when he came into the league, but his playmaking has been a pleasant surprise. A slew of injuries has affected John Wall, Christian Wood, Eric Gordon, and David Nwaba. KPJ will continue to get the green light while they’re out. Cash in on him now before his price goes up!

Gary Trent Jr., Portland Trail Blazers, $4,900

Trent has scored at least 15 points in seven of his last 10 games and has played a crucial role for the Trail Blazers while CJ McCollum has been out. The Minnesota Timberwolves have one of the worst defenses in the NBA, and they’re at even more of a disadvantage while Malik Beasley is serving a 12-game suspension. There aren’t many players at this price point that will get more than 30 minutes per game and make significant contributions on both sides of the ball.

DeAndre’ Bembry, Toronto Raptors, $4,400

Bembry has been inserted into the starting lineup to replace Fred VanVleet. He’s averaging 25.6 DKFP per game since the NBA returned from the All-Star break, and his price is steadily rising. He could flirt with 30 minutes if the game is close and can fill out the stat sheet by doing much more than scoring.
