Welcome to the NBA DFS 2-10-21 DraftKings Value Picks article!
We’ve got a nine-game slate tonight with some great pairings and even better value picks.
The cheapest pairing is the Clippers Lou Williams ($5,500) and Serge Ibaka ($5,400). Paul George is going to miss a few games which gives Williams more minutes and scoring opportunities, and Ibaka is going to destroy Minnesota in the post.
The intermediate pairing is the Grizzlies Ja Morant ($7,300) and Brandon Clarke ($5,700). Morant is averaging 15.9 points and 7.8 assists since returning from injury and Clarke is Morant’s main pick and roll partner.

Jalen Brunson, Dallas Mavericks $4,200
Said this on today’s @LockedOnMavs
Jalen Brunson has been one of the positives for the Mavs this season

— Isaac Harris (@IsaacLHarris) February 2, 2021
Brunson has been a solid contributor for the Mavericks for the past month, and now he has a choice (that's right, I said choice) matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.
He averaged 24.7 minutes, 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in his previous ten games and had five double-digit games in that span. Brunson has a real shot at getting double-digit points against Atlanta.
The Hawks allow 25.1 points, 8.6 assists, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game to point guards.
If you're looking for deep value to spend money elsewhere and want a shooter who will not tank your team, then Brunson should be drafted by you.
Coby White, Chicago Bulls $6,200
White has improved in his second year in the NBA, averaging 14.9 points, 5.3 assists, and 4.8 rebounds. He is improving his scoring each game; he is averaging 13.8 points, 4.5 assists, and 4.3 rebounds in his previous five games. Now, White faces a defense who struggles at stopping guards, the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Pelicans allow 23.7 points, seven rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game to shooting guards this season.
Mikal Bridges, Phoenix Suns $6,100
With defensive versatility and accurate, high-volume three-point shooting—already etched into his basketball identity, it’s easy to see how Mikal Bridges's evolution over the next few years can align with Phoenix’s needs https://t.co/U8QTgby1XI
— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) February 4, 2021
The Suns are 6-1 in the past seven games and are currently on a three-game winning streak partially due to Mikal Bridges' performance.
He is averaging 14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and one block in his previous ten games. He was the leading scorer for the Suns in two of those games, which is impressive because he plays alongside Devin Booker and Chris Paul, who are phenomenal scorers.
Bridges is facing the Bucks tonight. Despite them being one of the NBA's best defenses, they have struggled at stopping small forwards. The Bucks allow 25 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game to small forwards this season.
Brandon Clarke, Memphis Grizzlies $5,700
Fair warning, Clarke is dealing with a sore calf, so there is a possibility that he will miss his third game in a row. If that is the case, Kyle Anderson ($5,600) will be a great replacement and is coming off two consecutive double-digit games.
Now that we are finished with the article's disclaimer part let's get to the reasons why Clarke will be a great value if he plays tonight. He averaged 15.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, two assists, and 1.6 steals in his last ten games. Clarke has a matchup against the Hornets, who allow the most fantasy points to power forwards.
The Hornets allow 24.4 points, 10.9 rebounds, and five assists per game to power forwards.
Serge Ibaka, Los Angeles Clippers $5,400
? Asked Ty Lue and Paul George about Serge Ibaka's impact as a pick & pop shooter this season.
It's something LA didn't have last year and provides a good secondary option if Kawhi/PG attract an extra defender.

Ibaka has been balling recently; he is averaging 12.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 blocks in his previous ten games. Tonight, he is playing one of the worst defensive teams, the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The last time Ibaka played Minnesota, he had 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and two blocks. The Timberwolves haven't improved since that meeting; They are number one overall in fantasy points (64.6) allowed to centers. Plus, Minnesota allows 28.3 points, 16.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game to centers.
