What’s up Karma Nation! Welcome to another edition of my Value Plays article. I will be focusing solely on DraftKings. Always remember that the value on DraftKings is not always the value on FanDuel, or any other site you are playing on. If you haven’t signed up for core plays yet, make sure to do so by clicking here. We have daily, weekly, monthly, and season-long packages. You can try us out for as little as $5!
Value is mainly determined by two things: injury news or lazy pricing. A player could be underpriced because salaries came before injury news. A site can also be lazy and not raise the price of a player who has been playing way above their price and getting the minutes to prove it’s sustainable.
If you are familiar with NBA DFS you know the best value could open up minutes before the slate locks. So, make sure to check back later in the day, the best value plays for the slate may change depending on if we get injury news we were not expecting or that we were waiting for all day. I will be providing an update at the bottom of the article if there is a need for it. There will be times we receive news less than an hour before lock, that is where it is vital to join our discord for free. Whether it is on the free side or the premium side there will always be people discussing injury news and how it has impacted the slate.
Also, make sure to check out our live odds on Bet Karma to stay up to date on how Vegas is projecting these games.
All plays are under $5000
Malachi Flynn $3900:
Flynn is in store for another huge game according to his price tag. The rookie out of San Diego state is trying to make a name for himself as he slides into the starting lineup for a third straight game due to the absence of Fred VanVleet and Kyle Lowry. I know he is going to be chalky tonight but he is one of those late-season NBA value plays you can’t get away with fading. Flynn is coming off back-to-back 30+ minute games leading to 38 DK points per game. At only $3.9k that is tough to pass up. Not only has Flynn been seeing an increase in minutes, but has seen a 20+ percent usage rate in both of those games as well. 20% usage rate and upwards of 35 minutes is something I don’t want to fade tonight.
