This article aims to highlight some of the best NBA DFS Plays at every position for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups. Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our NBA News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.
Now let’s move on to the NBA DFS Plays for Sunday!
Take note that the Golden State-Brooklyn game (5 ET) is on the FanDuel main slate but not DraftKings.
John Wall – Washington (at LA Clippers)
This is my favorite game of the night, and you’ll find plenty of players from this WAS-LAC tilt written up throughout the article. Games like GS-BKN and PHX-OKC have double-digit point spreads with some blowout risk. The Mavericks are looking at a tough matchup vs Utah. That leaves this game as the “path of least resistance” for fantasy purposes. The over/under is set at 228, and I believe Wall is a great all-around play on both sites.
Bradley Beal – Washington (at LA Clippers)
Let’s go ahead and monopolize the Washington backcourt in this high over/under. Beal was injured in Wednesday’s matchup against Golden State, but he saw 39 minutes on Friday at Sacramento. He should be good to go moving forward, and the high minute total gives him a chance to sustain the current 37.5 FPPG average.
Danilo Gallinari – LA Clippers (vs Washington)
How about we keep picking from the best game atmosphere of the night? Danilo Gallinari has been a fixture for the Clippers, notching 34+ fantasy points in three of his past four games. The lone miss came in a blowout win where Gallo only saw 21 minutes at Houston on Friday. He still managed an efficient stat-line with 26 FP in that game. I’m expecting another solid outing against a Washington team that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency vs small forwards so far this season.
Montrezl Harrell – LA Clippers (vs Washington)
I’ll be locking in Harrell at power forward on FanDuel and center on DraftKings. Montrezl has been an absolute monster for the Clippers while hitting 44, 31, and 50 FP respectively over his past three games. While we can’t expect those performances as a baseline, it’s nice to know Harrell has that kind of upside if things are going his way. Facing a beat-up and sometimes undersized Washington frontcourt (Howard out, Morris questionable) could help him keep that high level of production. Harrell’s salary has yet to account for the recent uptick, so this is a nice buy-low opportunity.
Steven Adams – Oklahoma City (vs Phoenix)
Adams had his first down performance of the season while coming up with 24 FP in a trick matchup vs Boston on Thursday. He has been otherwise dominant with 39+ FP in every other game. Adams should get back to that range with an excellent bounce-back matchup against a Suns team that ranks dead last in defensive efficiency vs opposing centers to begin the season. Phoenix also ranks in the bottom ten for rebound rate.
