With the Bulls a bit shorthanded tonight, Noah Vonleh looks to be the biggest benefactor of the additional minutes from Markkanen and Zipser being out. For the season, Vonleh has averaged nearly 1 fantasy point per minute in games that Markkanen did not play. Vonleh has the potential to see 30+ minutes, which is more than enough time to provide value.
FD: $7800 | Fpts: B | Value: B
DK: $7400 | Fpts: B | Value: B
Even though Beal’s recent performance has been a bit frosty, as evidenced by a large drop in price on both sites, he’s still Bradley Beal. The Wizards are still playing meaningful games, so there’s reason to suspect Beal will revert to his normal standard of play. If that happens, Beal will have a much easier time exceeding value at his sub $8000 price.
FD: $4300 | Fpts: D | Value: A
DK: $4700 | Fpts: C | Value: C
If you’re looking to roster Bogdan tonight, he’s in a much better spot on FD, where the positional strength is a tad weaker than usual. Not to mention, he’s actually $400 cheaper on FD compared to DK, which is a nice value for a guy averaging 27 minutes per game in the past two weeks. With limited options on the 5-game slate, Bogdan is certainly someone to target on FanDuel.
FD: $6300 | Fpts: C | Value: B
DK: $5900 | Fpts: B | Value: B
Since the past few nights have had multiple high value options, Portis likely stands out as a unique choice for Slam Dunks. He’s priced fairly, with a slight nod to DraftKings, but he has some additional potential with Felicio out. Don’t be surprised to see Portis start the second half over Robin Lopez, which could lead to more minutes than usual. That’s should be enough to provide decent value on an otherwise weak slate.
