3 NBA FanDuel Value Plays to Target on 12/30/20


#One of the keys to finding success in daily fantasy basketball is uncovering potential value plays. #If you’re looking to roster a stud player or two, you need to consider squeezing in one of these lower-salaried options into your lineup.

#Let’s take a look at five players who can help fill in the gaps in your lineup.

#Tyus #Jones, PG, #Memphis #Grizzlies ($5,800)

#With #Ja #Morant out for the #Memphis #Grizzlies, #Tyus #Jones should be the starting point guard.

#Morant is going to be out for 3-5 weeks due to an ankle injury and backup guard #De’#Anthony #Melton is out due to COVID protocols. #This leaves #Jones as the projected starting point guard and likely one of the chalkier players on the slate. #In the first two games of the season, #Jones only played a few minutes, so we can’t draw much from that. #But, when #Morant went out on #Monday night versus the #Brooklyn #Nets, #Jones came in and played a season-high of 34 minutes, while posting 26 #FanDuel points.

#Those are some very solid minutes and also are where numberFire’s projections have #Jones sitting at tonight — he is projected for 33.85 minutes and set to produce 26.6 #FanDuel points. The matchup versus the #Boston #Celtics has an over/under set at 220.5, which is actually the lowest on the slate. #That isn’t ideal, but the minutes are super secure for #Jones, who could push towards 30 #FanDuel points if the game stays competitive.

#Serge #Ibaka, C, #Los #Angeles #Clippers ($5,400)

#Serge #Ibaka is having a great start to the season and it going a bit overlooked.

#As a pure role player for the #Los #Angeles #Clippers, #Ibaka has posted 22 #FanDuel points or more in all four games this season, and that should continue tonight. #Kawhi #Leonard didn’t play last night and is listed as questionable for tonight’s game against the #Portland #Trail #Blazers. #In a small sample size this season, #Ibaka sees a 2.5% increase in his usage when #Kawhi is off the court, boosting him up to 28.6%, which is the second-highest on the team behind #Paul #George.

#On top of that, #Ibaka also produces an additional 0.13 #FanDuel points per minute in the same situation, putting him up at 1.47 #FanDuel points per minute. #Considering this game has an over/under set at 226.5 and both teams are ranked 9th and 12th in adjusted pace, respectively, we should have a fantastic game environment to target for fantasy production. #That is reflected in numberFire’s projections, which have #Ibaka going for 25.2 #FanDuel points in 23 minutes tonight.

#Joe #Harris, SF, #Brooklyn #Nets ($4,300)

#While #Joe #Harris isn’t the main offensive option for the #Brooklyn #Nets, you should consider him a strong value option tonight.

The #Nets are taking on the #Atlanta #Hawks, where the over/under is set at a stagger 239.5 points, which is the highest on the slate. #To put it simply, that is super-high and you borderline need to be getting some exposure to this spot with only five other games on the slate. #This is the game that stands above the others, and with #Harris only $4.3K, he offers a bit of salary relief while grabbing some offensive equity in this game.

#To start the season, both the #Nets and the #Hawks are in the top half of the league for the fastest-paced teams in the league and should continue to climb towards the top as the season goes on. #That is always good to see for a role player like #Harris, who only has a 15.8% usage rate this season. #If he isn’t the main option on offense, the extra possessions throughout the game will help him reach or exceed fantasy value. #We all know that #Harris gets the majority of his fantasy points from three-pointers and has attempted four or more shots from downtown in all four games this season. #He is also averaging a solid 4.5 rebounds per game, which will help boost his floor of points. #With his scoring potential from deep, the over/under, the pace of this game, and his salary, #Harris is a standout value play.
