An eight-game main NBA slate will wrap up this week’s basketball action on Sunday. There’s a lot to sort through between the first tips of the night at 7:00 p.m. ET and the final 10:00 p.m. ET tips, but we’ve identified a few cheap plays worth keeping an eye on to help you find success in fantasy hoops.
That being said, it is a great time to give you some value plays for your DFS contest. 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 are going to provide you with three players that you need to put in your lineup.
Terance Mann, Los Angeles Clippers, $4,900
Kawhi Leonard (rest) won’t play on Sunday, so Mann is in for a hefty bump in minutes. The second-year wing put up 40.25 DKFP in 36 minutes against the Houston Rockets on Friday. Injuries to Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverley should help Mann see significant minutes again. His playmaking upside could receive a boost because of his team’s lack of point guards, and he reached a season high with nine dimes in his last outing.
Coby White, Chicago Bulls, $4,600
White has been relegated to the bench in recent weeks, but his Sunday matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves will give him a shot at a ceiling game. He’s logged more than 25 minutes off the pine in six of his last seven games. No team has been worse than the T-Wolves at defending point guards on DraftKings, so as a scoring guard, White should get a nice bump in production.
DeAndre’ Bembry, Toronto Raptors, $3,800
Bembry was extremely productive for the Raptors early on against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, but sat out down the stretch as Gary Trent Jr. caught fire in the second half of Toronto’s blowout win. Bembry and Malachi Flynn are the Raptors’ only two options at point guard, and both are threats to play more than 30 minutes if the game stays competitive. Bembry might not be much of a scorer, but his ability to rack up blocks, steals, and histle rebounds make him valuable with a large enough workload.
