Big E’s Big Five Values of the Day
TJ McConnell, 76ers (5.4K)- TJ will be the primary backup to Ben Simmons as Jerryd Bayless is out again with a wrist injury. TJ will get the minutes because Brent Brown loves to play the guy. He won’t score many points all the time but he works hard and is capable of filling the stat sheet. He’s averaging 21.14 Fanduel points. The Kings are allowing an average of 49.3 FD points to the point guard in the last five games.
Jordan Clarkson, Lakers (4.4K)- Clarkson in his last three games as scored over 29 Fanduel points and his season average is 23.33. Clarkson is leading the Lakers in usage at 30.2% and he comes off the bench and averages only 21.1 minutes per game, he’s averaging 15.4 points per game which is third on the team. The Wizards in the last five games are allowing 54.3 FD points to shooting guards.
Kelly Oubre Jr, Wizards (4K)- Yes once again, Kelly Oubre makes the list of values of the day. There’s nobody else really to play that is under 6K to play that is a value play. At this price if you’re trying to fit like three stars this is a decent punt play. He gets over 25 minutes and can fill the stat sheet.
Markieff Morris, Wizards (4.5K)- The Lakers are allowing 47.1 Fanduel points to Power Forwards and last night against the Celtics, Markieff twin brother Marcus Morris had 18 points against them so expect similar numbers since the Lakers are also on a second of a back to back. Markieff recently just came back from an injury and each game his minutes have gone up. He can fill up the stat sheet.
Willie Cauley-Stein, (4.9K)- This is a risky pick as we don’t know what kind of minutes he will get on a given night but at this price you can’t go wrong if he got over 20 minutes as he can be a point per minute guy. The 76ers are allowing 48 FD points to the Center. His FD average is 23.79.
