Tuesday NBA DFS Resourceful Plays from RosterResource.com
Tony Parker – In a game where the Spurs are expected by oddsmakers to score nearly 110 points and Tony is only $100 more than Zach LaVine, it really sounds like a no-brainer. The Spurs scored 106 and 130 in the first two meetings this season. He had 43 fantasy points in the 130-point game, as the Spurs won 130-91, and played 27 minutes. Still, he has been a fantasy disappointment in three straight.
Zach LaVine – We have to consider Zach as a possibility, as the Wolves continue to be plagued by the injury bug. Kevin Martin’s return may have taken some usage from LaVine, as he fell short of projection last time out. Still, we have him tabbed for over 25 fantasy points at 5.8k.
Brandan Wright – Wright has been a big-time value since Len went down with a facial fracture. He is going to likely be our center at 4.9k at FanDuel. With 35 and 32 fantasy points over the two games in Len’s absence, it will be hard not to use him as a value center.
Mike Muscala – Value at PF if you are trying to save money. First game on the card, so we will have the ATL lineup info in plenty of time, as we just want to make sure Muscala is playing over Scott like we expect. Muscala has a strong track record of making the value when he plays regular minutes.
Bismack Biyombo – If Al Jefferson (questionable with a knee injury) doesn’t play, then Bismack could be a great value play again. Biyombo received a nose injury in the last game, but is probable tonight at the Heat. Biyombo has been a big fantasy star over the last six games, nearly clearing 25 fantasy points in four of the six.
Aron Baynes – Baynes at the bottom of the barrel, but always surpasses his measly projections when getting double-digit minutes, providing the value we need to get to the high-priced talent. All we need is 15 fantasy points, but it is quite possible that he could come up with more with the Spurs expected to put up plenty of points on Tuesday night.
Marcus Morris – With Brandon Knight and Alex Len both expected to miss Tuesday nights game, Morris is likely to see extended minutes once again. Morris hasn’t been great of late, but at just 5800K on Fan Duel, you could do much worse especially in a limited card and power forward position.
Danny Green – The Spurs are hitting on all cylinders behind the play of Kawhi Leonard and the unsung Green. Green was absolutely terrific Sunday against the Warriors pouring in 35 Fantasy points in 28 minutes of action. Look for Green to put up another great stat line in a high scoring affair at a modest price of just $5200.
Dion Waiters – We are looking for players to roster from the San Antonio/Oklahoma City game, as this total has been set very high by oddsmakers at 215 overnight, which was actually down from the 217 opener. Waiters is hit and miss, but were willing to ride the former Syracuse man at such a low value of just $4500. Definitely a tournament option.
Ray McCallum – More consistent than LaVine, and has a great matchup on his hands Tuesday night against the putrid TWolves who allow the most points per game in the NBA. Ray exploded for over 30 fantasy on Sunday and is averaging over 30 minutes over the last eight games.
Tyreke Evans – Evans has just put up 46 and 48 fantasy points in his last two games and 40 or more fantasy in four of his last six. We can just match him up with Parker and be fine with that. His production is usually on par with his minutes and he has logged over 30 minutes in four of the last six games.
Andrew Wiggins – Wiggins is not the best value on the board, but likely to make many of our tournament lineups due to the amount of minutes he’s expected to play. Andrew really has been terrific over the last seven games, showing four strong 35-plus fantasy-point upside in four of those contests.
Omri Casspi – In an up-tempo matchup with the Wolves, Casspi could have a solid or even great night. He allows you to do some things under the cap. He rarely fails to at least get close to his meager projections, so we are looking for just 20 fantasy points from Casspi to make cash game viable.
