NBA DFS 12-16-19 Value Plays

Seven game NBA DFS main slate tonight (12-16-19) which means finding value plays is going to be more important than ever!

Looking at the injury reports, Andre Drummond (eye) is a game-time decision and Blake Griffin (knee) has been ruled out by the Detroit Pistons tonight.

The Toronto Raptors will be without Fred VanVleet (knee) against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Phoenix Suns have listed Devin Booker (forearm) as questionable. Deandre Ayton is serving the last of his 25 game suspension tonight and will return to the Suns lineup tomorrow!
