NBA DFS Picks: Top DraftKings, FanDuel Value Plays for Saturday (10/29)

We've got a seven-game NBA slate on tonight's Saturday schedule. We're still waiting on a couple of key players' health.

Check your lineups before the first game begins at 6 pm ET. Joel Embiid and Ja Morant are two of the key players that could sit out tonight's games.

Here are my top DFS value plays for DraftKings and FanDuel. Best of luck on the slate!

Point Guards

Tyus Jones

  • DraftKings: $4,700
  • FanDuel: $4,500

Of course, if Ja Morant is out, Tyus Jones is a play. Jones added 14 points against the Kings with five assists and two rebounds on Thursday.

He'd be projected to earn more minutes and should end up producing more stats because of it. He could end up with 30 or more fantasy points tonight.

Coby White

  • DraftKings: $3,600
  • FanDuel: $4,000

White can also be used as a shooting guard on both sites. He's coming off a 31.8 fantasy point night against the Spurs last night, where he scored 19 points while adding four rebounds and four assists.

White's usage was the highest it had been all year. If you're looking for a sneaky option, White could be that guy.

Shooting Guards

David Roddy

  • DraftKings: $3,000
  • FanDuel: $3,500

Roddy's a shooting guard and small forward on DraftKings but only a power forward on FanDuel. I'd prefer using him as a shooting guard tonight. With Morant potentially out, Roddy could produce.

He's had games where he's had high usage. There are games where he's already scored eight or more points.

I'll admit, Roddy is a bit of a gamble but it could pay off if he gets the minutes.

Small Forwards

Dillon Brooks

  • DraftKings: $5,100
  • FanDuel: $5,100

Brooks is another option on Memphis. He's working his way back after missing the first three games of the season.

Against the Kings on Thursday, Brooks scored 11 points while adding two rebounds and two assists. He'll be used at a much higher rate moving forward and has the potential to put up around 32 fantasy points in tonight's game.

Ben Simmons

  • DraftKings: $3,200
  • FanDuel: $3,900

The total for the Nets vs. Pacers game is 237. Simmons won't score a high amount of points, but he'll be involved with all of the scoring.

He's had two straight 30 fantasy point nights. He hasn't scored 10 points in any game this season but has added a whole bunch of rebounds, assists, and blocks. In a fast-paced game against the Pacers, Simmons should excel doing the little things.

Power Forwards

Aleksej Pokusevski

  • DraftKings: $4,200
  • FanDuel: $4,400

Pokusevski added 26 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday, where he added 25.7 FanDuel fantasy points.

Pokusevski has a high usage every time he's out on the floor. He scored 15 points against the Clippers with six rebounds and three assists. When Pokusevski is given opportunities, he's usually consistent, dating back to last year.

You can get 25 points from Pokusevski with a salary of under $4,500.


Santi Aldama

  • DraftKings: $5,200
  • FanDuel: $4,900

Aldama is only a center on DraftKings, but he can be used as a power forward on both sites.

Aldama has earned about 30 minutes per night over the last two games and while his shot total isn't very high, he could see more action with the number of injuries that the Grizzlies have had recently. Aldama started the year scoring at least 34 fantasy points in the first two games. That's not even his maximum ceiling. But at 5,200,34 fantasy points would be very ideal.
