Jeff Pratt:

Anytime you can get consistent 20-ish fantasy point production out of a player who is priced under $5K, it’s a steal, and that’s exactly the case with Maxi Kleber, who comes in at $4,400. You look at Kleber’s stat line and nothing really pops out, but he does a little bit of everything and he’s racked up 18+ DK fantasy points in three straight contests. His usage rate has also seen a significant bump in two of those contests. The Mavs are looking for help offensively besides Luka Doncic and Kleber has shown he can handle some of that burden. There aren’t a ton of great value plays on tonight’s slate, but he’s definitely one of them.

And quickly, on the other side of that matchup, I also think Jae Crowder is a solid play at $5K. He’s scored 27+ DK fantasy points in both games of this series and he’s shooting 60% from three over those two contests as well. We know what type of role Crowder is going to play. If he’s making his shots, the production will be there.

Jeff’s Picks: Maxi Kleber ($4,400), Jae Crowder ($5,000)
