Let’s review the best players to target for value and production with two Game 7s on today’s NBA DFS roster.
NBA DFS All-Star Picks
Luka DoncicDallas Mavericks (DraftKings $11.6k, Fanduel $11.6k)
Doncic was two assists short of a triple-double in his side’s 113-86 Game 6 win. Doncic showed up in a big way, with his team facing elimination, registering 33 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and four steals.
He will once again be the primary ball handler for just about every possession he has on the floor. Look for Doncic, who now averages 39.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 10.3 assists in elimination games, for another massive stat line.

Jalen BrunsonDallas Mavericks (DraftKings $6.6k, Fanduel $6.2k)
Brunson scored 18 points in Thursday’s Game 6 win over the Phoenix Suns and he’s now scored 18 or more in four straight games. The Villanova product started the series slowly, but he hit his stride at a crucial moment entering Game 7 on Sunday.
In the playoffs, he recorded 18.6 field goal attempts per game, compared to 12.8 in the regular season. Expect the Mavs to lean on Brunson to be the second scoring option behind Doncic in a game-win or homecoming.
Other NBA DFS Star options to consider: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks (DraftKings $12,000, Fanduel $12,000)
NBA DFS Value Picks
Bobby PortisMilwaukee Bucks (DraftKings $5,000, Fanduel $5,700)
Portis has a very affordable salary on today’s slate, especially on DraftKings. He struggled on the field in Friday’s loss to the Celtics, going just 2-for-8 and missing all three of his attempts from deep.
The 27-year-old big man has been a key contributor to this series, especially in Game 5, where his comeback notched a one-point win over Boston on the road.
He averaged 26.0 minutes per game this series and coach Mike Budenholzer opted to accompany Portis down the stretch. Expect Portis to be active on the glass as his team tries to advance to the conference finals.
“…He’s got the most RPGs off the bench this playoff.” -StatMuse
Grayson Allenmilwaukee dollars (DraftKings $3.7k, Fanduel $3.8k)
If you’re looking to save your paycheck, consider Grayson Allen today, who received consistent playing time throughout the playoffs. It averages 27.2 minutes in this series, but its production is sorely lacking.
He hasn’t managed to score in double figures since Game 1 and he’s shooting just 33.4% from the field. He is certainly capable of launching himself offensively and he will have his opportunities with Khris Middleton.
Other NBA DFS Value options to consider: Maxi Kleber, Dallas Mavericks (DraftKings $4.9,000, Fanduel $4.3,000)
