This article aims to highlight some of the best NBA DFS Plays at every position for your cash game 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.
We’ll take a look at the five-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET on Friday.
Ricky Rubio - Phoenix (at Golden State)
Rubio is a strong mid-range pick in a nice spot tonight. He’s coming off a pair of 40+ FP efforts in each of his last two games as well. Now he’ll face a Warriors team that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to opposing point guards. Rubio should come through with 36 fantasy points as a baseline, but there’s upside around 45-50 in such an advantageous draw.
Khris Middleton - Milwaukee (at Atlanta)
Middleton is another strong “per dollar” option at a mid-range salary. This Milwaukee-Atlanta game has the highest over/under of the night at 237.5. Middleton has produced 45+ fantasy points in two of his last three games, and now he’s facing an Atlanta squad that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards. He’s a strong cash game option, and I’ll be looking to pair him with one of the OKC guards on FanDuel.
Jonathan Isaac - Orlando (vs. Philadelphia)
Isaac’s salary has fallen dramatically over the last two weeks, as a bad performance vs. Houston (17 FP) and an injury at Denver (11 FP) left him with an artificially low salary. Isaac has bounced-back since, culminated by a cool 51 FP showing vs. Chicago earlier this week. This matchup isn’t too shabby either, as Philadelphia ranks 21st in defensive efficiency to small forwards.
Bam Adebayo - Miami (vs. Indiana)
The matchup doesn’t look great, as Indiana ranks 11th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. Having said that, I don’t think it really matters when it comes to Adebayo. Bam has been fantastic lately, notching 50+ FP in four of his last five games. This is a competitive matchup that should require the best from Adebayo, and I’d be surprised if he doesn’t flirt with another 50-burger.
Steven Adams - Oklahoma City (at Charlotte)
Adams joins Rubio, Middleton, and Isaac as a strong mid-range choice who should outperform his salary level. The OKC center has posted 51 and 35 fantasy points respectively over his last two games, and he’s expected to thrive against a Charlotte team that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to opposing centers.
