FanDuel NBA DFS 1/16/19 Value Plays

@TheCombineJosh give his best value plays for the day

There are eight games on the NBA DFS slate for Wednesday, January 16th and here are The Combine Presidente’s value picks for the day.  I typically play one lineup per night on FanDuel for fun and you can check my lineups from last night at the bottom of the article.  Follow The Combine Sports and @TheCombineJosh on Twitter for updated information.


Magic @ Pistons (DET -3.5, O/U 206.5)

Raptors @ Celtics (BOS -2, O/U 222)

Nets @ Rockets (HOU -4.5, O/U 224)

Bucks @ Grizzlies (MIL -6, O/U 212.5)

Spurs @ Mavericks (EVEN, O/U 217.5)

Cavs @ Blazers (POR -14.5, O/U 217.5)

Pelicans @ Warriors (GS -7, O/U 241.5)

Jazz @ Clippers (LAC -1, O/U 224)


Value Plays:

PG Jalen Brunson ($3700)

  • There is the potential that Dennis Smith misses yet another game with an illness (or may get traded) and the Spurs don’t have anyone athletic enough to cover him or Doncic.  If he can get around 25-30 minutes tonight, he should be good for 5x+ his salary.  Follow me on twitter for updated information related to this.

SG Austin Rivers ($5000)

  • With no Chris Paul or Brandon Knight… and maybe no Eric Gordon, Rivers will see the most action offensively behind Harden.  Playing against a depleted BKN team, dare I say a 50 FD point night?

SF DeMarre Carroll ($4800)

  • With Crabbe and Dudley out, I imagine him getting a shot at another night similar to Monday vs BOS (32 minutes, 31.8 FD points)

PF Ed Davis ($4100)

  • Brooklyn has a lot of injuries at SF and so with few bodies available, look for Davis to see extra minutes tonight.  He could easily get you 25 FD points tonight for near minimum salary.  I see him in the 4.5x salary range

C Al Horford ($6400)

  • Horford had a rough game vs BKN on Monday, but he should be good for 30-40 FD points tonight in a “playoff” matchup vs TOR.

SG Austin Rivers ($5000)
