Guards

Jerryd Bayless (PHI): $3,400 vs. PHO

Bayless has been seeing some good minutes over the past few games due to T.J. McConnell being out for the 76ers. He is very cheap, and brings some solid production to your lineup, along with having a great matchup tonight. With McConnell off the court, he has a 15% usage rate, is averaging 0.62 fantasy points per minute and has scored 18 or more DraftKings points in three of his last five games. Bayless is also up against the Phoenix Suns, who are allowing 52 DraftKings points per game to point guards which is dead last in the league. If he gets the start tonight he should be one of the chalkier value plays on the board.

Gary Harris (DEN): $5,800 @ DAL

Harris has scored in double-digit real points in 9 of his last 10 games and is seeing a bump in usage now that both Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic are off the court. Harris has a 25% usage rate and is averaging 1.09 fantasy points per minute with them off the court. He is also up against the Mavericks, who are giving up 41 DraftKings points per game to shooting guards. Harris is starting to chip in with some of the peripheral stats, so he has more than one way to pile up DFS points. Shooting guard is a spot where many DFS players like to spend down on since production can be inconsistent, but with the playing time Harris is seeing, he makes one of the better plays on the board. He makes a good play in all formats, since he has the usage which is good for cash games and the matchup presents some upside for GPPs.
