Daily Fantasy NBA value pick: Jonathon Simmons

Here’s one player you can get at a bargain in daily fantasy.

NBA: Playoffs-Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday’s pick not only failed to reach success lines, but was also SCREAMED at by an irate Gregg Popovich for not running a crucial play correctly.

I’m angry, but I’m not THAT angry.

13.5-16. Let’s get this one.

Pick: San Antonio Spurs guard Jonathon Simmons

FanDuel price: $2,500

DraftKings price: $3,800

Opponent: Houston Rockets

San Antonio has turned to Jonathon Simmons to counteract Houston’s small lineup (especially with Parker out), and the young fella has delivered. He’s posted a DFS score of at least 15 in four straight outings, and remains a bargain.

Bottom line: Simmons has been extremely active all series, making the most of every second he’s out on the floor. If Pop continues to rely on him (which he almost definitely will), then we’re in business.

I’m hungry. Let’s eat.

Note: Spurs-Rockets is Thursday. All entries will include this game because only Wizards-Celtics is on the Wednesday slate.

FanDuel success line: 14

DraftKings success line: 18
