There are going to be a lot of unknowns in hunting bargains for NBA DFS. Ty Jerome did not play and Daniel Gafford did not do much in under 17 minutes of play. Anthony Lamb got his opportunities but fell way short (3 points and 5 rebounds in over 31 minutes of play) while Gabriel Deck did what he was supposed to do in 20 minutes. Only DaQuan Jeffries had himself a night, finishing with 17-7-5 versus Utah.
Let's try again and see what are our bargain options for Sunday night.
1.) Terence Davis, SF, Read More
Tuesday's two-game slate is pretty interesting-- one featuring Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals and another a winner-take-all Game 7 in the Western Conference finals. At first glance, it is easy which game to commit to-- and that's the Clippers-Nuggets series-- but at the same time, it could backfire. A Game 7 will likely feature a tighter rotation and more stringent defense, thus limiting fantasy points, probably except from the big guns.
With that being said, I'd be very tempted to tap Read More
It will be a very tricky situation with Giannis Antetokounmpo for Game 5, but if he's not good to go, a couple of Bucks are definite go-to's. That includes Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, and Eric Bledsoe. Middleton is a lock to go for 40 FP and I think Bledsoe should also play more minutes and more usage rate if Giannis indeed sits out.
If you don't want to play the Bucks, Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo have been pretty much unstoppable this series. Dragic is averaging 20 points, five rebounds, and Read More
Justise Winslow, PG, Miami Heat
Winslow has been tearing it up statistically over the past three games, averaging 19 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists over that span. The Heat will be playing a Hawks team in the second night of a back-to-back so this will generally be a favorable matchup for Winslow and the Heat.
The only causes of concern are the return of Dion Waiters and Jimmy Butler but I think JW has proven enough to keep his place as the Heat's starting PG.

Monday night features only two games but there will never be a shortage for bargains if you know where to look.
1.) P.J. Tucker, PF, Houston Rockets
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
Tucker comes up big in Game 3 and has some solid averages this series (13 points, six rebounds, two assists, and 1.3 steals. He is a big part of the Rockets' offense and defense and will continue to see upwards of 30 minutes every single night.
2.) Luke Kennard, SF, Detroit Pistons

Sterling Brown, SG, Milwaukee Bucks
With the Bucks firmly holding the best record in the NBA, Milwaukee is looking to rest key guys and play some of their younger ones. With Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe all out for load management, Sterling Brown came through with a career-game-- 27 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals against Atlanta. The Bucks are on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn but Brown has got young legs, so I don't see that as a problem.

Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks
Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.
Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets
With Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb unavailable, Read More
Jonas Valanciunas, C, Memphis Grizzlies
Now, who would've thought? JV has been tearing it up as of late, dominating his last three opponents to the tune of 25.3 points, 17.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.3 blocks. He will be facing Steven Adams so temper your expectations a little bit but the Grizzlies doesn't have too many options on offense. JV has a 40-50 FP upside every night.
Jimmy Butler, SG, Philadelphia 76ers
I'm not sure we will see a 50-FP game from Jimmy Butler for Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Back-to-back games with at least 60 fantasy points say it all. Beal is carrying this Wizards team and doing it all, averaging 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 9 assists, and 2.5 steals over the past two. He already had a couple of pretty nice games against the Magic this season so I expect him to top his averages.
Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors
Curry is having mediocre games by his standards lately but facing a rival without Kevin Durant, Read More
Best NBA DFS Value Picks For DraftKings-- Dec. 3, 2016
Gordon Hayward, SF, Utah Jazz ($7,700)
The Jazz will probably miss George Hill tonight because of thumb sprain so most of his Usage should go to Gordon Hayward. Hayward has hit his stride lately, hitting over 36 Fantasy Points in the last six games capped by a 50-FP outing against Miami. There's a big chance he'll hit around that vicinity again against Denver.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies ($7,100)
Speaking someone who has Read More
