Boogie and Rondo are tremendous fantasy values

This is a sponsored post as part of SBNation's partnership with FanDuel. If this isn't your thing, that's cool. No need to rain on anyone's parade.

If you're playing FanDuel on a regular basis, you already know that you should be playing Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins whenever possible. Rondo has been a triple-double machine this past week, finishing with a triple double in 3 of his past 4 games. FanDuel success is all about finding values where you can, and the system is notoriously slow to update player costs. Take advantage of having Rondo in your lineup as much as possible before his cost eventually rises.

DeMarcus Cousins isn't exactly a value play, but he's definitely worth having in your lineup. My strategy is always to have a couple big stars that cost a lot, and then I surround them with value players. Cousins is a guy worth spending on. Andre Drummond was a great value for the first few weeks, but his cost is finally starting to rise. As he becomes less of a value, I'm even more confident picking Cousins over Drummond.

One final trend to keep an eye on is Quincy Acy's minutes. Acy is dirt cheap on FanDuel, and could be a great value if he becomes a more reliable part of George Karl's rotations. Not worth putting in your lineup yet, but keep an eye on the situation.
