Between the nine games on tonight’s NBA DFS slate, there is a ton of value for us to go after. A few teams are dealing with a ton of injuries tonight, so that is where we are going for all our cheaper picks. We still really like getting to some of the Wizards guys knowing that Bradley Beal will remain sidelined for this one. Another team we are all over tonight is the Indiana Pacers, as they are the most injury-riddled team in the NBA right now. 

Here’s Two Core Plays For DFS Basketball 2/2/22 (using DraftKings Values)

Point GuardC. Anthony $6,500
Shooting GuardR. Bullock $3,900 
Small Forward   
Power Forward   

Cole Anthony has been a priority for us a ton lately, as is far too cheap whenever he is anywhere under $7,000. He offers a ton of variance in his production, so the low floor is there. However, he can also go for 50 FPTS on any given night given his role as the first option for this team. Anthony showed another productive outing last night with 44.5 FPTS on night, and he is averaging 36.8 FPTS over the past ten days. Anthony should be one of the top dogs on the floor for the Magic’s matchup against Indiana tonight, so he is one of our priorities once again.

The Dallas Mavericks are dealing with some significant injuries right now, as Tim Hardaway Jr. and Kristaps Porzingis are both missing time. There is a ton of extra minutes going around for Dallas forwards, and everyone should see a little extra usage. Reggie Bullock was a priority for us last time out in this spot, and he provided some fantastic value with 25.5 FPTS. He has gone for 24 or more FPTS in three straight games here, so he looks great at $3,900.

Here’s a Fade DFS Basketball 2/2/22 (using DraftKings Values)

We are looking at more of a balanced build for tonight’s DFS slate, as a lot of our priorities are in the $5,000-$8,000 range. We will only be getting to one superstar in our lineup, so we want to be careful in making sure we pick the best one. Jayson Tatum is certainly not that guy for us tonight, as he is too expensive at $10,600. Tatum is averaging 46.5 FPTS on the season and he relies on a big scoring night to hit value at this price. We have some other options that are cheaper and have more upside tonight.

Here Is What Your Get If You Subscribe For $15 Per Month or $99 For The Year…
• A mid-priced guard who must take on a star’s role here.
• One potential priority from the Sacramento Kings.
• A stud forward who has huge upside here.• One cheap big man who is coming off of a career night.

Point Guard 

Spencer Dinwiddie – ($5,800 DK) Dinwiddie was a priority for us last game, as he always must do a lot when Beal is not available for Washington. Dinwiddie shot a measly 2-for-9 from the field, and he failed to pick up any defensive stats. Dinwiddie still provided solid value with 28.8 FPTS, which shows us how much he has the ball in his hands in these opportunities. Dinwiddie is even cheaper tonight, and there is a ton of upside for him to churn out a more productive night.

Shooting Guard 

Davion Mitchell – ($4,900 DKDe’Aaron Fox has been sidelined for the past five games due to knee soreness. If he can come back tonight, we don’t like much from the Kings where everyone is priced for his absence. However, if he remains out Mitchell is one of our favorite options here. Mitchell has played over 30 minutes in each of the past three games, and he has been guzzling massive usage in that time. He has scored 32.5, 29.75, and 32.75 FPTS respectively in his past three games, so he is too cheap here if we can continue rostering him without Fox.  

Small Forward

Chris Duarte  ($5,100 DK) We mentioned in our introduction how the Pacers are one of our favorite teams to go after tonight, as Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner, Malcolm Brogdon, and Goga Bitadze are all out with injury. Chris Duarte was less productive than we would expect in the last game, going for only 22.8 FPTS. However, he played 29.4 minutes and put up eleven attempts from the field. He has a ton of upside if he can put together a better shooting night in this spot, and we know his usage could be much higher with so many guys out. 

Power Forward 

Kyle Kuzma – ($7,500 DK) This is not your father’s Kuzma, as he has been a fantastic DFS producer for weeks now. He was a core play for us last night knowing Beal would be sidelined, and he did not disappoint with 51.75 FPTS. We saw Kuzma take over as the clear first option for scoring, with 25 points on 19 attempts. He should have to take on a similar role tonight, so we will be getting to a lot of him at $7,500.


Isaiah Jackson – ($5,400 DK) It was a bit of a surprise in the last one to see Jackson emerge as the first scoring option for the Indiana Pacers. He played 29.3 minutes and lead the team with 19 attempts from the field. Jackson was a winning play with 46.5 FPTS, and we love getting back to him with the same injuries tonight. 

General strategy  

With all the injuries on tonight’s DFS slate, there is going to be a ton of value for us to get to. It is not going to be hard to find the cheap plays we need to save salary elsewhere. Our strategy for Cash games tonight will include locking in Dinwiddie, Kuzma, Bullock, Jackson, and Mitchell if Fox sits. We are also going to play Anthony and Duarte if we can squeeze them in. We will be getting to all of those guys in tournaments as well because with so many injuries some of these guys will be less owned than we expect. We also like squeezing in one superstar tonight, James Harden and Joel Embiid are priorities for us.
