We have a six-game NBA DFS main slate on our hands for Saturday, October 29th and the stars are out to play. But we all know playing the likes of Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Stephen Curry can be fruitful. Who are the value plays to put alongside them so that we can fit them comfortably in our lineups? Let’s breakdown the top NBA DFS value plays of the day. Be sure to check out our NBA DFS projections, powered by FanJections, NBA DFS Lineup Generator, and all of the rest of our NBA DFS content and tools!


All Sites

Buddy Hield, Indiana Pacers

There is absolutely no reason for Hield to be under $6K across the industry at this point. Especially when you factor in the match-up today. Indiana draws the Nets here and it’s no surprise to see this total sitting at 238 with two bottom ten defensive units battling each other. Hield has been great offensively this year and is coming off back-to-back 25-point games. He’s put up 35 or more points on DraftKings in three straight games and has 28+ points on FanDuel in all but one game this year. Elite GPP option at his price point.

Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies

With Ja Morant officially listed as doubtful with an illness, Tyus Jones immediately becomes the chalk play of the slate. He’s under $5K on both DraftKings and FanDuel and even with Morant healthy, he’s had a significant role. Jones has played over 22 minutes in every game this year and 24 or more in four of five. He’s also put up 22 or more DraftKings points in four of five and for a backup point guard, that’s elite, especially with the guards Memphis has in front of him. This year, Jones has a 25.8% USG rate and averages .93 FP/min without Morant.


Bobby Portis, Milwaukee Bucks ($5,400)

You love to see the fantasy production Portis is putting up despite playing behind both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez. Portis has a 22.5% usage rate and averages 1.29 FP/min, which is second on the team behind Antetokounmpo. Portis has three double-doubles in four games and has flashed 40-point upside as well on DraftKings. Atlanta has been one of the worst rebounding teams in the league, which could give Portis the opportunity to eat on the glass.

Aaron Wiggins, Oklahoma City Thunder ($4,200)

With Josh Giddey still off the floor, Wiggins should once again be in the Thunders starting lineup. He’s not a very high-usage player but has averaged .82 FP/min this year without Josh Giddey on the floor. He’s played over 28 minutes and has had at least 26 points on DraftKings in each of the last two games. There is a very low floor considering he’s not always as involved offensively as he’s been the last two games


Steven Adams, Memphis Grizzlies ($5,400)

It’s great to see what Adams has done to start the year and there’s no reason to think it won’t continue as long as Jaren Jackson Jr. is out. Adams has put up at least 25 points on FanDuel in four of five games this year and three times it’s been 27 or more. He has three double-digit rebounding performances and one double-double and without Ja Morant, there’s room for an even bigger offensive ceiling. Utah is 24th in rebounding and Adams could have a ceiling game on the glass.

Dillon Brooks, Memphis Grizzlies ($5,100)

I know I’m loading up on Memphis Grizzlies, but it’s warranted when the best player on their team is taken off the floor. Without Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. last year, Brooks posted a 29.6% usage rate, which led the team, and he averaged 1.01 FP/min as well. Brooks has not looked good in the two games since returning from injury, but it hasn’t stopped him from shooting as he has a 24.9% usage rate. He still profiles as a GPP play only.
