Daily Fantasy Basketball: DraftStreet Value Plays and Lineup – March 26

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 a 10-game slate today in the NBA. Get your lineups in as soon as possible.

Value Plays

Guard

Terrence Ross TOR ($6,599)

As you will see in the lineup for tonight, in order to grab the can’t-miss players, cheaper players needed to be selected first. Ross is among the cheapest starters on DraftStreet at just under $6.6K. At that price, good value is anything over 14 fantasy points. Ross has reached or exceeded 14 fantasy points in 11 of his last 14 games, and has contributed great value of 20 fantasy points in four of these games. You will not find another guard at his price who constantly plays 30 minutes and is a big part of his team’s offense. Get Ross into your lineup tonight.

Forward

Quincy Miller DEN ($3,428)

Miller is the third cheapest player on DraftStreet tonight at under $3.5K. At that price, good value is seven fantasy points and great value is 10 fantasy points. In Miller’s last game he played 25 minutes and accrued 14 fantasy points. Now, that was an outlier, but his minutes have been rising of late as he has played nine minutes or more in six of his last eight games. Now, with a price tag this low, risk is involved, but very little. If Miller scores anything more than seven fantasy points (his average over the last eight games) then consider it a massive win. Miller’s price gives your lineup flexibility to do anything you want.

Center

Enes Kanter UTA ($9,838)

It will not be long before Kanter’s price is over $10K, so be sure to reap the benefits beforehand. The Jazz have finally unleashed the former Kentucky Wildcat, and he is showing his potential as a double-double machine. Kanter is averaging 22 fantasy points in his last seven games, with just under 12 points and 11 rebounds per contest. Kanter has also scored over 20 fantasy points in seven of his last nine games, so he has been very consistent. The Jazz take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight, who are one of the better defensive teams in the NBA in terms of allowing points. But, Kanter posted 12 points and 12 rebounds against them one week ago for 25 fantasy points. Who’s to say he can’t do it again?

Optimized Lineup

G – Chris Paul LAC ($20,768)

G – Darren Collison LAC ($8,850)

G – Terrence Ross TOR ($6,599)

F – Blake Griffin LAC ($20,562)

F – Anthony Davis NO ($22,166)

F – Quincy Miller DEN ($3,428)

C – Enes Kanter UTA ($9,838)

U – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist CHA ($7,752)

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