Daily Fantasy Basketball: DraftStreet Value Plays and Lineup – March 7

Randy Foye

On DraftStreet, there is a $100,000 cap, which is used for eight players; three forwards, three guards, a center, and a utility player. In terms of value, should a player cost $15,000, incredible value would be 45 fantasy points. Unlike other daily sites, playing for five times value is not the goal here, as it is nearly impossible to find on a consistent basis. As a $100K salary cap would yield about 225-255 fantasy points for a good night, the best value is normally 2.25 or higher. Anything above 2.25 is a great value.

If you have not played over at DraftStreet, be sure to check the scoring system first, as it varies from other sites. Head over to make your deposit and start playing tonight!

DraftStreet Scoring: PTS: 1 pt, REB: 1.25 pt, AST: 1.5 pt, TO: -1 pt, Missed FT: -0.5 pt, Missed FG: -0.5 pt, STL: 2 pt, BLK: 2pt.

There is an 11-game slate today in the NBA. Get your lineups in as soon as possible.

Value Plays

Guard

Randy Foye DEN ($10,766)

With the Nuggets facing off against the Lakers tonight, you will see a lot of them on everyone’s rosters. The first one to start is Randy Foye. Foye’s cap hit has finally come up to over $10K but, against the Lakers, he is still a good option. With Ty Lawson back, the Nuggets guards can get back into a groove.

Forward

Wilson Chandler DEN ($11,336)

As mentioned before, tonight Denver takes on the Lakers, and Chandler is Nugget number two on this list. At just over $11K, 25 fantasy points would be great value. In his last three games, Chandler is averaging just under that mark. Expect Chandler to be one of the better players on the court for the Nuggets tonight, which bodes well for fantasy owners.

Center

Timofey Mozgov DEN ($7,910)

You can see a pattern going here can’t you? Yes, the Denver Nuggets should be able to pour it on the Lakers after their horrendous defeat last night to the Clippers. Mozgov is going to be the beneficiary of the Lakers porous rebounding and, at under $8K, Mozgov could reach great value tonight. With a double-double he will already be at good value, so adding a few more points and rebounds should be a given against the Lakers.

Optimized Lineup

G – Randy Foye DEN ($10,766)

G – Ty Lawson DEN ($16,255)

G – Stephen Curry GSW ($18,941)

F – Wilson Chandler DEN ($11,336)

F – Kenneth Faried DEN ($12,739)

F – Reggie Evans SAC ($8,744)

C – Timofey Mozgov DEN ($7,910)

U – Robin Lopez POR ($13,227)

Good luck tonight, and be sure to check the starting lineups before tip to be aware of any changes.
