We have a 6 game slate on FanDuel NBA DFS tonight! With lock at 7:00 PM EST, here’s who I like to reach value tonight.

Remember, value is determined by reaching 5x the price for the player. Example: a price tag of $10,000 means the player needs to get 50.0 FPTS. Ideally, we want guys that smash that value for 7x-8x their worth.

Point Guard

Austin Rivers, HOU – $3,600

The Rockets already ruled out Westbrook, and Harden is looking iffy to play tonight. That means the supporting staff for the Rockets will all see upticks in usage. Spoiler alert, the values are all in the Rockets players.

Chris Clemons, HOU – $3,500

Want to pivot off of Rivers? Take Clemons instead! He’ll likely be the go to guy on the 2nd unit tonight.

Other Values: Luka Doncic ($10,900), Reggie Jackson ($4,500)

Shooting Guard

Ben McLemore, HOU – $3,600

This position is great for a player the caliber of McLemore. Aside from a couple others, he’ll be in charge of running this offense and is likely going to shoot the ball the most of all the Rockets players tonight.

Duncan Robinson, MIA – $3,900

With Jimmy Butler and the Heat in general riddling the injury report, Robinson is dirt cheap and a 30+ minutes guy. He’s shown the ability to score in bunches and is coming off of a 30+ FPTS game.

Other Values: DeMar DeRozen ($8,300), Bogdan Bogdanovic ($4,500)

Small Forward

Eric Gordon, HOU – $4,400

Someone has to score for HOU tonight and Gordon is the most likely guy to lead the team in that category.

Danuel House, HOU – $3,500

Yet another minimum price HOU player that has splashed in the past. House has scored 22+ FPTS in 3 of his last 4 games.

Other Values: Bojan Bogdanovic ($5,800), Rudy Gay ($3,800)

Power Forward

Trey Lyles, SAS – $3,600

Aldridge is sitting this game out which means added opportunity for Try Lyles. He is going to potentially draw the start at PF and has a ceiling of 35 FPTS.

Isaiah Hartenstein, HOU – $3,700

Did I mention that HOU will be without Clint Capela too? Hartenstein is a likely candidate for extended minutes and has scored 57.5 FPTS in a game earlier this year.

Other Values: P.J. Tucker ($4,100), Larry Nance ($5,100)


Jakob Poeltl, SAS – $4,000

Poeltl is a solid FPT per minute player and is going to finally see over 20 minutes once again. In games that Poeltl has played over 20 minutes, he’s scored 27.0, 27.3, 21.1, 47.5(!!!!), and 27.5 FPTS.

Mo Bamba, ORL – $3,500

Bamba has seen his minutes increase recently and has produced quality FPTS. He doesn’t have the best matchup tonight against the HEAT, but Bamba doesn’t need much to reach value.

Other Values: Andre Drummond ($10,500), Nikola Vucevic ($8,300)
