FanDuel NBA DFS 1/17/19 Value Plays

@TheCombineJosh give his best value plays for the day

There are six games on the NBA DFS slate for Thursday, January 17th 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 @TheCombineSports and @TheCombineJosh on Twitter for updated information.


Knicks @ Wizards (WAS -7.5, O/U 227.5) *3 pm London Game*

76ers @ Pacers (IND -3.5, O/U 224.5)

Kings @ Hornets (CHA -3, O/U 229.5)

Suns @ Raptors (TOR -8.5, O/U 222.5)

Bulls @ Nuggets (DEN -14, O/U 213)

Lakers @ Thunder (OKC -10.5, O/U 227)


Value Plays:

PG Fred VanVleet ($5000)

  • Kyle Lowry is sitting for TOR and PHO doesn’t have much competition at PG.  This is an easy call.

SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($4500)

  • No LeBron, Lonzo vs Westbrook, and PG13 D-ing up Kuzma/Ingram, dare I say a 50 FD point night for KCP?

SF Norman Powell ($3600)

  • Kawhi Leonard is getting the night off, Powell is all upside at this price and a must-start.

PF Pascal Siakam ($6700)

  • With Lowry and Leonard out, Siakam should see extra minutes (40+?) with the small bench tonight… and extra chances offensively.  Big 5x opportunity here.

C Tyson Chandler ($3700)

  • Luke Walton is starting Chandler over McGee again tonight and I have to imagine he’s going to get every opportunity to stay o the court tonight to prove his worth as they assess their trade deadline options.  At this price, you can use the savings in other areas.  Follow me on twitter for where I’m putting those dollars tonight.


Presidente’s Lock of the Night:

PF Pascal Siakam ($6700)
