For the fourth time this season, Bradley Beal will be out for several games, his last illness being a wrist injury. In his absence, Spencer Dinwiddie took his game to another level and showed Wizards fans why Washington spent $54 million to bring him to DC Dinwiddie averaged 21.3 points and 8.3 assists in the last six games Beal has missed, which is well above the 13.2 PPG and 5.7 APG he’s averaged on the season. Dinwiddie could be an undervalued option in Tuesday’s NBA DFS player pool as the Wizards visit the Bucks.
With price tags of $6,300 on FanDuel and $5,900 on DraftKings, Dinwiddie won’t break the bank. So listing it would then allow you to assign your NBA DFS salary cap to more expensive options such as Giannis Antetokounmpo on the other side. But what other great deals are available for tonight’s roster of games? Before you lock in your NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, be sure to check out NBA DFS tips, player rankings, stacks and top daily fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

On Monday, McClure included 76ers center Andre Drummond as one of his top NBA DFS picks on DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Drummond filled the stat sheet with 16 points, 23 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals, returning 62.25 points on DraftKings and 63.1 points on FanDuel. Everyone who included him in their lineups was well on his way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to the NBA DFS slate for Tuesday, Feb. 1, and has locked down his top daily fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by going to SportsLine.
Top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday, Feb. 1
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Tuesday is Spurs guard Dejounte Murray who is listed at $10,100 on DraftKings and $10,200 on FanDuel. Murray missed Sunday’s game with a knee contusion, but isn’t even listed on Tuesday’s injury report. The 25-year-old was filling in the score before sitting down as he has three triple-doubles in his last six games.
Murray’s 10 triple-doubles on the trail of the season, only Nikola Jokic’s 12 as a playmaker have a breakout season. He’s averaging career highs across the board with 19.4 points, 9.1 assists, 8.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game, with that NBA-leading sweep mark. Murray should have another stat-packed performance against the Warriors tonight as the last time he faced them in December, he had 23 points, 12 boards, seven assists and a pair of steals.
Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Suns forward Cameron Johnson ($5,400 on DraftKings and $5,600 on FanDuel). Johnson has started 10 games this year with Jae Crowder (wrist) and Crowder is listed as questionable on Tuesday, as is center Deandre Ayton (ankle).
Johnson more than filled in as a starter when called up as he edged out Crowder when he was in the starting lineup. The former UNC product is averaging 16.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals when starting, while averaging 3.5 three-pointers per game. Facing a depleted Nets squad that’s missing three frontcourt players in Kevin Durant, Joe Harris and LaMarcus Aldridge, Johnson is in line for a huge performance tonight.
