By Keith Allison [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

The Dallas Mavericks are hogging all the value plays. Do not avoid their team tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 12/28/15. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to it!

FanDuel DFS Guards

Brandon Knight (vs CLE, $7,000)

Brandon Knight is going to lead the entire Phoenix Suns' offense for awhile, as Eric Bledsoe is currently sidelined. Bledsoe shoots the ball early and often, which means that his injury will open up a lot more shots for Knight. In his last two games, Knight has over 35 fantasy points in both, and he should play better with Bledsoe out of the lineup. The Suns will rely heavily on the young guard, and he will perform as expected. Generally, Knight is seen as a tournament play only, but he can be used in 50/50 contests considering the circumstances. The Suns will push the pace against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they'll be playing from beyond for a majority of the game, so Knight will let it fly from three. Do not hesitate to use him frequently.

J.J. Barea (vs MIL, $4,100) 

J.J. Barea is playing 30-40 plus minutes per game for the Dallas Mavericks right now, and he looks incredible. Since returning from injury, he has really impressed. Over his last two games, he is averaging right around 40 fantasy points per game. He is scoring at a very high rate, which is unusual for Barea, as he generally only assists the ball well. He is always a double-double threat, and his price tag is definitely too low. For only $4,100 Barea is the best option on the board regardless of position. Use him in all formats; both 50/50 contests and tournaments.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Derrick Favors (vs PHI, $7,700)

Derrick Favors is questionable tonight with back spasms, but he should play. He sat out last game against the Los Angeles Clippers, and he should be ready to go against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, and Favors is going to take advantage of that. He is a high upside player, which means he is best utilized in tournaments. With the ability to score over 40 fantasy points, Favors could definitely crush value. The Sixers will not guard him hardly at all, and the pace of the game will be uptempo. Favors has upside similar to Pau Gasol and Paul Millsap for a lower price tag.

Chandler Parsons (vs MIL, $4,500)

Chandler Parsons is finally playing big minutes for the Dallas Mavericks, and he looks good. In his last two games, he has both over 30 minutes and over 30 fantasy points in both of them. He looked very impressive against the Chicago Bulls, scoring 20 points, rebounding the ball five times, and assisting the ball five times. He should be able to continue his success tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks and easily hit value. He will save enough salary cap to play the Anthony Davis' of the world. Use him in any format, and use him frequently.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic (vs NO, $8,000)

Nikola Vucevic is playing consistent minutes for the Orlando Magic, and he has been crushing value. In his last game against the Miami Heat, he scored 22 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and posted 49 fantasy points. In his last five games, he has over 40 fantasy points in four of them. The New Orleans Pelicans are terrible at defending big men, so Vucevic is the top center option on the board. In fact, Vucevic will be in around 90 percent of my FanDuel lineups tonight. Do not avoid him for any reason, unless there is a last second injury/.
