NBA DFS Value Vault: January 6
James Grande brings you the top value plays to build your lineup around for tonight’s main slate!
Marcus Smart , SG BOS -- $4,900
I understand he didn’t perform how we had hoped he would his last time out, but he’s still under 5K and now draws a match-up against the Wizards. Washington ranks 29th in DvP and only the Hawks are worse. The reason we’re going to Smart again is because Kemba Walker has once again been ruled out. Smart sees an increased usage of over three percent -- second highest on the team -- and averages exactly one FP/min with Walker off of the floor this season.

Jrue Holiday has been ruled out of this game and that will lead to extended run for Hart. Hart is already a main staple in the rotation notching 24-plus minutes in nine-of-10 games.
