In case you missed it, last month we launched our own version of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) contests. That is right, you can now play Daily Fantasy Basketball at Bruno Boys. We offer head-2-head, 50/50, GPP tournament contests and more on a daily basis throughout the NBA season. With that in mind, we are going to bring you a DFS value play article in which we look at some of the best daily fantasy basketball options for each night.
To build a team on Bruno Boys DFS you get $80,000 to spend on eight players (PG, SG, SF, PF, C, G, F, UTIL) and with player salaries ranging from $6,000 to $17,000 you must spend wisely and make sure to find players that are going to be bargains each day.
1. Trey Lyles, PF, Utah Jazz
With news that starting PF Derrick Favors is OUT tonight for the Jazz, Lyles becomes a must start across the board in daily fantasy basketball contests. At just $7,200 in Bruno Boys DFS tonight he’s the 12th most expensive at the power forward position but has a serious chance of producing as a top-3 PF play tonight. That is true value.

Lyles averaged just 17.3 minutes per game (MPG) as a rookie in 2015 and that translated to 6.1 points per game (PPG) and 3.7 rebounds per game (RPG). However, as a starter for 33 games last year Lyles averaged 25 MPG and cashed in 7.6 PPG and 5.5 RPG.
The Trail Blazers struggled against the PF spot last season and with Lyles expected to play upward of 30 minutes tonight I can see him getting fantasy owners 9-11 points to go along with 9-11 rebounds. He is a true double-double candidate and should be over 20 Bruno Boys DFS points, which is almost 3x the amount of his $7,200 salary. Get Lyes into your lineup on opening night.
