FanDuel NBA: Sunday Value Plays

FanDuel NBA: Sunday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NBA series.

The NBA has seven games on tap Sunday, and since all start between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. EST, FanDuel offers a bunch of contests with every game included. There are a lot of great fantasy matchups, including the Mavericks at the Nuggets, the Grizzlies against the Suns, the Heat against the 76ers, the Raptors against the Rockets, the Warriors against the Lakers and the Thunder against the Bucks. There could be some nice points put on the board.

Point Guard

Mike Conley, MEM vs. PHO ($6,800): Conley has averaged 17.2 points, 6.8 assists and 2.2 boards per game in his last six, and he is facing a Suns defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to point guards this season. The only risk is a Grizzlies blowout that causes Conley to sit, but otherwise he has a great opportunity.

Emmanuel Mudiay, DEN vs. DAL ($5,800): Mudiay has turned in back-to-back outstanding games, averaging 23.5 points, 7.0 assists, 5.0 boards and 2.0 combined steals and blocks per game over that span. The rookie seems to be coming into his own, especially against weaker defenses, and he has another good matchup Sunday against the Mavericks.

Shooting Guard

Wesley Matthews, DAL at DEN ($4,400): Matthews has scored at least 15 points in five straight games before a clunker in his last outing against the Kings. When his shot is falling, Matthews is a steady threat to scoring in the mid-20s, which outperforms his price. He also has a good matchup on Sunday against a Nuggets defense that is 19th against shooting guards.

Lance Stephenson, MEM vs. PHO ($3,900): Stephenson has scored more than 20 fantasy points in four of his last five games and Sunday he faces a Suns defense that struggles against wings, ranking 22nd against small forwards and 28th against shooting guards.

Small Forward

Chandler Parsons, DAL at DEN ($6,900): Parsons is averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 boards and 4.0 assists pergame in the last three, and on Sunday he has a good matchup against a weak Nuggets wing defense.

Power Forward

David Lee, DAL at DEN ($4,500): Lee is averaging 10.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.8 combined blocks and steals in only 18.5 minutes per game over his past five, and on Sunday he faces a Nuggets defense that is 24th in the NBA against power forwards.

Center
Alex Len, PHO at MEM ($6,100):
Len is averaging 19.2 points, 12.4 boards and a blocked shot in 32.1 minutes per game over his last five. In the last week alone he has two monster performances, including 22 points and 16 rebounds the last time he faced Sunday's opponents, the Grizzlies, and 31-points and 15 rebounds Friday against the Magic.
