Fantasy Basketball: Finding Value at Draft Kings for Wednesday December 2nd, 2015!



Every week I do my best to help DFS Fantasy Basketball players find value plays that they can use to win GPP tournaments. We aren’t aren’t the 50-50 cash game guys here. We want you to make a big hit when you play and I must say that tonight’s slate at Draft Kings has some very good opportunities for you to get great value.

Keep in mind we are looking for these value picks to hit 6 Fantasy points per $1000 dollars of salary spent. The following players should give you that opportunity as well as allow you to afford a Steph Curry, James Harden, Paul George or Anthony Davis…..and maybe two or three of them!

Point Guard: Isaiah Canaan at $5400 is a very good play tonight. Now that he’s back in a starting role for the 76ers he’s been hitting at 5 times value and against a Knicks team that is allowing point guards 41 Fantasy points per game Canaan might be able to hit 6 times his price on Wednesday.

Shooting Guard: The Clippers Chris Paul is banged up and is listed as questionable on Wednesday. If he can’t go you have a couple of options; you can roll with Austin Rivers at $4,000 or you can even spend up a bit at $4,400 with J.J. Reddick or even a little higher price of $5,000 and roster Jamaal Crawford. Over the last 5 games the Pacers have been allowing 41 opposing shooting guards 41 Fantasy points a night. Rivers might be your best option to hit six times value but only if Paul doesn’t play. Also keep in mind Indiana allows point guards 45 Fantasy points over their last 5 ballgames.

Small Forward: Jared Dudley is starting at the three and at $3300 bucks and on most nights the guy has been an excellent value play and this should be the case against a Lakers team who over their last five nights are allowing 42.8 Fantasy points per night to small forwards. Over his last 5 games Dudley has a 10.5 point floor and a 30.25 ceiling. This could be a good value play for you to consider.

Power Forward: LaMarcus Aldridge at $6,600 bucks is a steal tonight against a Bucks team who over their past 5 games are allowing power forwards 42.6 Fantasy points a night and 49 Fantasy points a game over their past 10 games. Over his last 10 games Aldridge has a floor of 16 points and a ceiling of 46.25. If he hits 40 you will have made 6 times the value tonight.

Center: Joakim Noah at $4,100 might be a good play against a Denver Nuggets team who over their past 5 games have allowed Centers a whopping 73 Fantasy points a night and 52.9 over the season. Over his past 10 games Noah has a floor of 7.25 and a 38.5  ceiling. If he gets 20 minutes tonight he’ll make value and there’s a good chance he’ll get you the 6 times value you need to win the big one.
