NBA DFS Value Vault: December 8
James Grande brings you his favorite value plays from DraftKings and FanDuel for tonight's DFS slate.
Ish Smith , PG WAS -- $4,600
We shouldn’t have to tell you to play Smith at this price tag, but here we are. The Wizards are once again without Isiah Thomas and Jordan McRae , which opens up Smith for all of the minutes he can handle. He’s played 32 and 34 minutes and scored 31.4 and 32.2 FP in the two games he has started. This isn’t an easy match-up with Patrick Beverley , but he didn’t have easy match-up’s with the Heat and 76ers and still popped off. Smith is a lock and load in cash at this price.
Trevor Ariza , SF SAC -- $3,900
So Ariza has now played 35 and 28 minutes over his last two games and has gone for 25-plus FP in both. Ariza can contribute in plenty of categories, especially on defense where his FanDuel value comes into play. He’s had a steal in three straight games and had two last game. He’s also grabbed six rebounds in each of the last two games as well. As long as Marvin Bagley doesn’t return today, Ariza is firmly in this Kings rotation.
