NBA DFS value plays under $5K for Friday, April 2nd

We go over some top bargain options under $5K on DraftKings for Friday’s main slate.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at San Antonio Spurs Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

With 10 games on the slate for tonight, there are a lot of options to pick from in your DFS lineups. The docket tips off with the Warriors and Raptors at 7:00p.m. ET and concludes with three different games tipping off at 10:00p.m. ET. It might be a little overwhelming especially if you’re relatively new to DFS, but rest assured there are plenty of ways to stack your team without going over your salary cap.

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.

Delon Wright, Sacramento Kings, $4,900

Wright had his first big showing for the Kings since being traded from the Pistons on March 24th, as he racked up 29.25 DKFP with 16 points, three assists, and three rebounds in their 106-120 loss to the Spurs. It’s the first time he’s cracked double-digit points since making his Kings debut, and it could be a sign of good things to come. Wright has averaged 27.0 DKFP all season long, and while his first couple games with the Kings didn’t go as well as hoped, he may be finding his groove with his new team. This is also the lowest his DFS price has been in quite a while, so he could be a great add for tonight especially as the Kings take on a struggling Lakers team.

Royce O’Neale, Utah Jazz, $4,500

If you’re looking for a solid forward on a budget, O’Neale is always a good choice as he’s generally guaranteed somewhere around 30 minutes in any given game. He’s not a prolific scorer, but racks up his fantasy points with rebounds and assists. He’s averaged 22.4 DKFP this season, while averaging 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game as well. His fantasy points average jumps to 23.7 when just looking at home games, so as the league-leading Jazz host the 10th-place Chicago Bulls tonight, you can expect a solid showing from Royce.

Dorian Finney-Smith, Dallas Mavericks, $4,200

Finney-Smith recently missed two games due to personal reasons, but since his return he’s been solid on the floor for the Mavs, and is good for 30-plus minutes in a game. Most recently he played 40 minutes against the Celtics, amassing 27.25 DKFP with 11 points and nine rebounds, just one board away from a double-double. His season-long average is 20.2 DKFP and he’s right on that mark throughout his last five games as well. He’s been consistent all season long which has helped propel the Mavericks to the great run of form they’ve seen lately as they’ve won 12 of their last 18 games.
