FanDuel DFS Values Of The Night: Monday (Apr. 12)
Breaking down the players to consider for your lineups on an 8-game Monday.
See below for a breakdown of value plays for tonight’s slate of games on Fan Duel by FantasyPros.
Andre Drummond (C – LAL) $6,500
In his two games back from injury, Drummond has been playing quite efficiently, tallying 36.9 FanDuel points and 36.2, respectively. Both performances came with the new Lakers center playing 26 minutes and 22 minutes, but I only see his minutes increasing. Even if he repeats his previous performances, he’ll reach 5.5X value, but today I see him playing around 28-30 minutes and tallying 40+ FanDuel points, making him a solid GPP and cash value.
Royce O’Neale (PF – UTA) $4,200
As a consistent starter who plays 30+ minutes, $4,200 is too cheap for O’Neale. The Jazz power forward gets to play one of the worst defenses in the league in a pace-up spot after coming off a solid outing vs. the Kings. I expect O’Neale to garner roughly 25 fantasy points with a ceiling of 33. I prefer him in GPP lineups, but he makes a fine cash play as well.
Ish Smith (PG – WAS) $3,900
On the other side of the ball, you have Ish Smith as a riskier option for GPP lineups only. Monitor injury news, but with Beal dealing with a back injury, Smith could see a boost in playing time. He has a good chance to reach 20 minutes and can return some serious value as a lower-owned player in a tougher matchup.
Shake Milton (PG – PHI) $4,400
With George Hill out, Milton will see a boost in minutes, and he has been playing well of late. He is a more risky play, but he is capable of posting 30+ FanDuel points. The 76ers point guard should see the floor for around 24 minutes and has been close to 1.0 FPPM all season, giving him a solid base to reach 5X value.
Tyrese Haliburton (SG – SAC) $5,700
Mr. Valuable himself, it’s another week of me writing about how Haliburton is a great value play. The Kings rookie hasn’t started either of his last two games, but he is still too talented to pass up at his price. Haliburton has been a 0.94 FPPM guy this season, and he has shown off his ability to have ceiling games. I love this matchup vs. the Pelicans in a pace-up spot. Haliburton is fine as a GPP or cash play.
Christian Wood (PF – HOU) $7,400
As the main contributor for this Houston Rockets team, Christian Wood is a great play tonight for GPP or cash lineups, even with his price of $7,400. His usage rate has sat around 25% in his last ten games, and he’s been a 1.19 FPPM producer this season. The Suns present a tougher matchup, but that means some DFS contestants might be scared of him, making him a great leverage play. Despite the tougher opponent, I see Wood playing 35+ minutes and scoring 40+ FanDuel points.
Joe Ingles (SG – UTA) $5,500
Mike Conley and Jordan Clarkson should both be out tonight, meaning Ingles should step up to a starter role with extended minutes. The Jazz shooting guard always holds the potential to score 30+ fantasy points, a benchmark he has reached in each of his last two games. Now, with him expected to start and play more in a fantastic matchup, I see his ceiling at 40 FanDuel points, making him an excellent GPP and cash play.
Hassan Whiteside (C – SAC) $3,700
If you’re looking for a price-saving option in the center spot, Whiteside is an easy go-to. Marvin Bagley III remains out, and while the Kings center is pretty inconsistent, he can sometimes illuminate and reach 6X-7X value. In a beautiful matchup tonight, I can easily see him get to 6X value, even if he only sees the court for 20 minutes.
Bojan Bogdanovic (SF – UTA) $5,200
The small forward position will be tough to figure out tonight, but Bogdanovic has great potential to return the best value at his position. Similar to why I like Ingles tonight, Bojan is in a wonderful spot to reach his ceiling. I see the Jazz small forward playing around 30 minutes and returning a little over 5X value.
