Huge slate tonight. 11 Teams are playing tonight, and we have got most of the league to choose from. Value will be easy to find on this one, so your lineups will have to be strong. We have put together a stars and scrubs lineup tonight, to target some of the high value plays available. We will also lay out a few options for different injury news. 

Here’s a value-based lineup For DFS Basketball 2/12/21 (using DraftKings Values)

Point GuardR. Westbrook $9,000
Shooting Guard  $7,000
Small ForwardD. Bacon                                   $4,400
Power ForwardD. Bazley $5,900
Center                  $9,400
Guard  $3,800
Forward  $7,400
UtilityI. Stewart             $9,400

Bradley Beal has been ruled out for tonight’s game with the Knicks. Russell Westbrook is a core play without Beal, as he should carry the usage for the Wizards. Westbrook is priced at $9,000 tonight, which is a discount in itself considering Westbrook is averaging 47 FPTS a night this season. The Knicks matchup is enticing, as they do not pose a big blowout risk. Westbrook should crush value tonight and will have too much usage to turn down.

Dwayne Bacon is a great value tonight if Orlando remains deeply undermanned. If all the questionable players on Orlando end up healthy, I would pivot away from Bacon. However, it looks like Orlando will still have multiple injuries tonight. Bacon played 37 minutes last game and over 30 in each of the least three games. Bacon scored 32 FPTS last game and should crush value again if the minutes are there.

 The Oklahoma City Thunder have been a key team in DFS recently because of all there injuries. The trend will continue today, and we can expect monster minutes from the Thunder Starters. Darius Bazley has shot the ball terribly the last few games. In consequence, Bazley’s price at $5.900 has barely risen. Bazley has played over 40 minutes in the last two games, shooting the ball 36 times in that span. Bazley’s price reflects a floor game and he could break the slate with his upside tonight.

Last night Mason Plumlee was ruled inactive before the game. If Plumlee is out again tonight, Isaiah Stewart is a core play. Stewart played 31 minutes last night and scored 33 FPTS. Stewart should be able to have another solid night, as there are not many center options on Detroit. Stewart is priced at $3,100, which he should crush if Plumlee is still out. 


Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• High upside options with great opportunities tonight.
• A cheap guard who should get the start.
• Different options for when news breaks.

Hamidou Diallo – SG ($7,000 DK) There is a little bit of sticker shock seeing Diallo at this price. However, Diallo has a monster role as the only healthy guard for the Thunder. Diallo has scored over 42 FPTS in each of the last two games with his current role. Diallo will need to continue playing monster minutes tonight and should have another solid fantasy performance. 

Nikola Vucevic – C ($9,400 DK) The Magic will be missing a few key players again tonight, which should mean extra usage for Vucevic. Orlando is matched up with the Kings, who allow more points then anyone else in the league. This price is still low for Vucevic, considering he has been averaging almost 55 FPTS over the last ten days. Vucevic has monster upside and checks every box for DFS tonight.

Payton Pritchard – G ($3,800 DK) Kemba Walker has been ruled out tonight, making Pritchard a great play. Pritchard played 29 minutes last night, with Kemba playing 30. Tonight, Pritchard should get around 30 minutes, which would make him a core value play. Pritchard has showed some decent upside all year and should get the usage tonight. 

Gordon Hayward – F ($7,300 DK) Hayward’s price is really enticing tonight for a matchup against the Timberwolves. Hayward is averaging over 38 FPTS a game this year, flashing huge upside. Hayward’s price is down after two blowouts, so tonight is a great chance to buy low on him. 

Alternative Moves…

Al Horford – C ($6,700 DK) Horford is another player who has seen a massive usage boost on the Thunder. Horford has huge upside tonight, as he has been shooting the ball a ton lately. Horford scored over 56 FPTS in two of his last three outings. If Horford can have another monster game, he will be one of the top plays on the slate at this price.

DeMar DeRozan – C ($8,000 DK) The spurs will still be undermanned tonight, which means extra usage for DeRozan. DeRozan had an off game last game, but that was on the second leg of a back-to-back. DeRozan has showed nice upside and has a great matchup against Atlanta.


Good luck everyone, a lot of directions to take your lineups tonight.
