Ameer Tyree got his start in NBA DFS over four years ago. The former DraftKings Nation betting and fantasy writer spent over a year and a half breaking down basketball slates to build optimal lineups there. Ameer's favorite play for Wednesday was Tobias Harris. The 76ers forward returned more than 5X value at $7,700 by scoring 21 points to go along with four rebounds, four assists, and four steals. Now he's turned his attention to Friday's two-game slate.
One value play Ameer loves: Tyler Herro at $6,900. "Kyle Lowry's time on the shelf has helped Herro find himself and there's no rush for Miami's starting point guard to come back before he's ready while his team as a 2-0 lead. He's torched the 76ers for 21.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game on 55.6 percent shooting in the second round." Ameer says about the matchup.
