One of the major part of daily basketball fantasy is uncovering potential value plays. If a team is looking to roster a stud player or two, they need to consider squeezing in one of these lower-priced options into their lineup. Below are the five potential value plays that can fill gaps in a team.

Ben McLemore has a FanDuel price of $4,000 and projected fan duel points 20.0. The Sacramento Kings relinquished their franchise player which will open a huge opportunity for McLemore. Leading to the mid-season break, he has been averaging 14,4 points, 4 rebounds and 3.6 three-pointers in 33.3 minutes. With Matt Barnes being waved, McLemore might get a raise.

Aaron Gordon has a FanDuel price of $4,500 and projected fan duel points 23.8. Sergi Ibaka is pretty much out of picture, Gordon may be expecting to get an increased workload and he may seize this opportunity. He is already in pace to set career-highs in points, assists and three-pointers this season. Leading to the All-star break, in the two games Gordon averaged 9.5 points, 6 rebounds and 2.5 assists. 

Willie Cauley-Stein has a FanDuel price of $3,800 and projected fan duel points 26.9. Willie has become a promising future star for the Kings as they failed to get any frontcourt players in their surprise trade with the Pelicans. Over the games in which Wille has managed to log 20-plus minutes, he has averaged 10.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. 

Tim Frazier has FanDuel price of $3,500 and projected fan duel points 19.6. As per fantasy standpoint, Frazier could well be the biggest beneficiary from the DeMarcus Cousins acquisition during the All-star break. He has proved his value quite impressively as he began the season leading the New Orleans Pelicans backcourt with averages of 11.2 points, 7.7 assists in just 23 starts.

Jusuf Nurkic has a FanDuel price of $3,700 and projected fan duel points 26.3. It has been reported that Nurkic will get a first start for his new team Portland Trail Blazers. Before the mid-season break, he posted 13 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals and a block in just over 21 minutes of play in his first game for the Blazers.
