FanDuel NBA: Wednesday Value Plays

FanDuel NBA: Wednesday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NBA series.

With some teams having already advanced to the next round of the playoffs, there are only two games on the schedule for Wednesday. Both Eastern Conference series are tied at 2-2 and it's anyone's guess who is actually going to advance. No guessing will be needed though for your FanDuel entry as the players below have the makings of a productive evening.

John Wall, WAS vs. ATL ($10,100): Wall has been a model of consistency in this series as he has scored at least 41 FanDuel points in each game. Not only has he dished out at least nine assists in three of the four games, but he has also scored at least 22 points in all four contests. He is the engine that drives the Wizards and is in store for another big performance Wednesday.

Bradley Beal, WAS vs. ATL ($7,500): Beal has been very productive in the series as well as he has scored at least 33.1 FanDuel points in three of the four games. Offense is the name of the game for Beal as he has scored at least 31 points in two of the last three games. He has played at least 35 minutes in all four games and there is no reason to believe he won't put up another productive evening in Game 5.

Isaiah Canaan, CHI at BOS ($1,800): The Bulls finally made an adjustment to their rotation as Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams struggled mightily in place of Rajon Rondo (thumb). Canaan played 34 minutes in Game 4 and produced 23.9 FanDuel points. He's not playing the role of point guard in the sense of being a facilitator, but he has nice range and helps stretch the floor. He's already been named a starter for Game 5 and is worth using at this dirt-cheap price.

Jimmy Butler, CHI at BOS ($10,400): Butler has scored at least 44.3 FanDuel points in three of the four games in this series as he tries to carry the Bulls into the second round. He is handling the ball more with Rondo out of action and should see more of those responsibilities again in Game 5. With the lack of elite talent to pick from Wednesday, Butler is one of the best players to insert into your lineup.

Nikola Mirotic, CHI at BOS ($5,800): The Bulls desperately need Mirotic's outside shooting and he has come through with at least 11 points in each of the last three games. He has provided solid rebounding numbers as well, leading to at least 23.9 FanDuel points in each of those three games. Some of his shots may leave you scratching your head, but his overall production makes him worth playing at this price Wednesday.

Kent Bazemore, ATL at WAS ($4,300): Bazemore only played 24 minutes in Game 4, but he was extremely productive as he scored 36.3 FanDuel points. Although he hasn't played more than 28 minutes in any game of the series, he has scored at least 20.6 FanDuel points in three of the contests. While it's hard to expect him to match his production from Game 4, he can still be valuable at this cheap price.

Al Horford, BOS vs. CHI ($7,800): Horford is not flashy, but he has been very productive as he has scored at least 30.7 FanDuel points in each game of the series. Not only is he a double-double threat, but he has dished out at least five assists in three of the four games. He's the most expensive center Wednesday, but his consistency makes him worth the price.

Marcin Gortat, WAS vs. ATL ($5,600): Gortat has really struggled offensively of late as he has scored only four total points in the last two games. While his offense was bad, he did grab a whopping 18 rebounds in Game 4 and has grabbed at least eight rebounds in each game of the series. He can do enough on the glass and in the blocks department that he can make up for poor offensive outings, making him worth playing at this price if you need to save money at center.
