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 Tuesday!

 

 

POINT GUARD

 

Patrick Beverley – LA Clippers (at New Orleans)

 

This is the highest-scoring game of the night, a fast-paced matchup between the Clippers and Pelicans. Beverley has struggled with his shot to begin the season, but he’s still producing some reasonable fantasy output through peripheral stats. Once his shooting percentage normalizes, there’s upside to be had for DFS purposes. He’ll have plenty of room to stuff the stat-sheet in this scorefest, and I like him as a value on this abbreviated three-game slate.

 

Also Consider: Elfrid Payton, TJ McConnell (Simmons doubtful)

 

SHOOTING GUARD

 

Gary Harris – Denver (vs Sacramento)

 

Will Barton is out for an extended period of time, and Gary Harris stepped up for 42 FP in the first game without him. That came against Klay Thompson as well, making it even more impressive of a feat. He has an easier matchup against a generous Sacramento backcourt that has the third fastest pace of this season.

 

Also Consider: Jrue Holiday, Markelle Fultz

 

 

SMALL FORWARD

 

Nikola Mirotic – New Orleans (vs LA Clippers)

 

Mirotic has been amazing to begin the season, averaging a consistent 48 FPPG with a 33-10 line through the first two games. He’ll have a golden opportunity to keep that going in a high-scoring draw vs the Clippers. In my opinion, Mirotic is an essential play on FanDuel, where the small forward position doesn’t have much opportunity cost. Multi-position eligibility on DraftKings makes him less of a must over there, but he’s still a quality play on that site.

 

Also Consider: Danilo Gallinari, E’Twaun Moore (value)

 

 

POWER FORWARD

 

Anthony Davis – New Orleans (vs LA Clippers)

 

As I have been preaching in this article, you’ll want plenty of exposure to this 238 over/under between the Clippers and Pelicans. Davis is an obvious lift within that, and I’m looking to squeeze his cumbersome salary into my cash lineups on both sites. I believe that is possible when looking towards some of the other value prospects in this slate, and AD is primed for a monster performance in this insanely high scoring game. The fact that Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are no longer with the Clippers makes this an advantageous matchup with nobody left to guard Davis.

 

Also Consider: Nikola Jokic, Dario Saric

 

 

CENTER

 

Willie Cauley-Stein – Sacramento (at Denver)

 

I like Joel Embiid tonight (especially with Ben Simmons doubtful), but I’d rather spend on Anthony Davis. That has me looking towards Willie Cauley-Stein at a cheaper salary, and it’s good to know that he has some upside as well. WCS will need to avoid foul trouble against Nikola Jokic and company, which is probably one of the biggest obstacles to his DFS success tonight. However, Cauley-Stein has been a beast on a per-minute basis this season (100 FP in 85 minutes), and the Kings could really use his length to harass Jokic this evening.

 

Also Consider: Joel Embiid, Zaza Pachulia (tournaments)
