Welcome to the NBA GPP Pivots article, where we’ll be looking to uncover some sneaky-good DFS plays away from the popular selections. These recommendations are usually risk/reward commodities meant to be used in large-field tournaments. Typically, blending these low-owned hidden gems with well-aligned staples contributes to a viable GPP strategy.

Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our NBA News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.

We will be looking at Tuesday’s six-game slate starting at 7:30 ET.

POINT GUARD

Kemba Walker - Boston (at Portland)

Walker is usually overlooked, and that will probably be the case again tonight. Point guards like Malcolm Brogdon, Reggie Jackson, and Malachi Flynn will steal the DFS attention away from him. However, we need to keep Walker in mind, especially considering the matchup at Portland, who ranks dead last in defensive efficiency to point guards. Kemba has been above his fantasy average in the last two games, including a nice 41 FP effort vs. Minnesota. He could get back to that range tonight.

SHOOTING GUARD

Joe Ingles - Utah (vs. Oklahoma City)

This recommendation depends on the health of Jordan Clarkson. If Clarkson is out again, then Ingles will continue to take on a bigger role for Utah. In the past three games with Clarkson sidelined, Ingles has stepped up with 32-34 FP in each outing. He’s a solid play through all formats if the injury news breaks in his favor.

SMALL FORWARD

Solomon Hill - Atlanta (at Toronto)

There are plenty of places to find DFS value on this slate, but don’t forget about Solomon Hill. Atlanta PF John Collins will continue to miss time, and Hill has been filling in with 25+ FP in three of his last four. Take note that Danilo Gallinari is also doubtful for the Hawks, which helps secure Hill’s playing time. Hill’s salary is hovering around the minimum, and I like him as a serviceable value filler on this slate.

POWER FORWARD

Tony Bradley - Oklahoma City (at Utah)

The matchup at Utah will likely scare people away, but Bradley is an efficient fantasy producer who could continue to impress tonight. Bradley went for 42 fantasy points in his last game, so you know he has some nice upside in his back pocket. Roby and Pokusevski are out for Oklahoma City, opening up more minutes in the frontcourt. Bradley enters as a risk/reward who can hopefully keep the momentum from his last outing.

CENTER

Goga Bitadze - Indiana (vs. LA Clippers)

Myles Turner is still out for Indiana, so Goga Bitadze will do his best to fill the void. He has come through with 30+ fantasy points in two of his last three games in that role. We’d like to see more minutes from Goga, but keep in mind that there’s upside in the 40’s if he gets around 25-30 minutes in this game. His salary is still too low when considered in the heightened role.

ALSO CONSIDER

Jalen McDaniels (PF - CHA) will look to step up with PJ Washington (among others) out tonight. He came through with 39+ fantasy points in two of his last three games, so there’s legitimate upside in his profile.

Brad Wanamaker (PG - CHA) becomes a legitimate value play through all formats with the news that Terry Rozier is doubtful. Wanamaker was looking solid even with Rozier playing, and now he’ll be forced into an extended role.
