Welcome to the NBA DFS 1-27-21 DraftKings Value Picks article!
We've got a 12-Game slate tonight with some great pairings, and even greater value picks.
The intermediate pairing is the Hornets’ Terry Rozier ($6,900) and P.J. Washington ($6,400). The Pacers are depleted due to injuries, so Rozier and Washington should have no trouble getting to the rim.
The expensive pairing is the Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell (8,400) and Royce O'Neale ($4,800). Mitchell is one of the league’s best scorers and the Mavericks can’t rebound at all, which means O’Neale will soak up rebounds like a sponge.

— Rob Perez (@WorldWideWob) January 21, 2021
In his previous five games, Anthony is averaging 31 minutes, 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, and three assists. He has also had four blocks in four out of his last five games as well; so he is contributing in all categories.
He hasn't had a 20 point game yet, but that could change against Sacramento. The Kings allow the most fantasy points to point guards (55 DraftKings points). They allow 27.8 points, 8.8 assists, and 6.4 rebounds per game to point guards.
Jeremy Lamb, Indiana Pacers $5,100
Lamb has only been back for four games but is looking good. He is averaging 16.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, and one steal since returning to the Pacers.
Lamb will get his shooting rhythm back by destroying his former team, the Hornets.
Charlotte allows 21.7 points, six assists, and 5.9 rebounds per game to shooting guards.
Cameron Johnson, Phoenix Suns $4,800
Among two-man lineups with at least 100 minutes played, Cameron Johnson and Cameron Payne have the best net rating. The Suns are +34.0 points per 100 possessions when those two are both on the floor.
— Andy Bailey (@AndrewDBailey) January 22, 2021
Johnson averaged 27.1 minutes, 9.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and one steal in his previous five games. Those stats don't seem impressive, but he is coming off a 19-point game against Denver and should have another good night scoring against the Thunder.
Oklahoma City is allowing 24.9 points, 9.9 rebounds, and four assists per game to small forwards.
If Mikal Bridges continues his fouling out streak, Johnson will absorb more of the scoring responsibility as well.
Marvin Bagley III, Sacramento Kings $5,700
Bagley has been a force to reckon with in his last five games; he averaged 15.4 points and eight rebounds in those games. Tonight he has a favorable matchup against Aaron Gordon and the Magic.
Bagley averages 12 points, seven rebounds, and one assist when guarded by Gordon. The Magic have struggled to contain post players recently, so Bagley will have a chance at a double-double.
James Wiseman, Golden State Warriors $5,200
Even though Wiseman is no longer in the starting lineup, but he is still a great value for tonight’s game. Wiseman has been fantastic recently; he averaged 13.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and one block in his last five games.
His matchup against the Timberwolves is one of the best for centers considering Minnesota allows the most fantasy points (60.5 DraftKings points) to centers. The Timberwolves allow 25.4 points, 15.3 rebounds, 5.2 assists per game to centers this season.
