Today we're highlighting our DFS projections tool and a few of its insights for tonight's slate. The tool helps illustrates each player's price on a given DFS platform, leveraged with an algorithm-based points projection. Any daily fantasy regular knows that the key to success is extracting high-upside value for a bargain price. These projections allow users to filter which players are a value at their current pricing and which players are overvalued based on their outlook. Users can choose between GPP or cash projections, while platforms available include DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo. You're able to chose between single games or full rosters, too. 

Here are five potential value plays across tonight's NBA matchups that managers could consider for their own lineups:

NBA DFS Projections | Yahoo! Cash Projections | Main slate

SF Gordon Hayward vs. PHI | 40.8 projected points | $22 salary | 1.85 PTS/$1

PG Alec Burks @ IND | 32.2 projected points | $19 salary | 1.70 PTS/$1

PF Jaren Jackson Jr. vs. DAL | 43.0 projected points | $28 salary | 1.53 PTS/$1

Pascal Siakam vs. OKC | 44.3 projected points | $31 salary | 1.43 PTS/$1

SG Zach LaVine @ CLE | 52.0 projected points | $37 salary | 1.40 PTS/$1
