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 nine-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET on Monday.
Luka Doncic - Dallas (vs. San Antonio)
Doncic is one of the priciest players in this slate, but you should be able to entertain his cumbersome salary. Aaron Holiday makes for a strong bargain at the point guard position (Brogdon & McConnell out), and he’ll help clear enough cap space to roster Doncic. Go ahead and view Renee Miller's NBA DFS Bargains article for more details. As for Luka, he has been straight fire with a 60 FPPG average over his last five. There’s a good chance that will continue in this competitive rivalry game with the Spurs, who rank 22nd in defensive efficiency to point guards.
Spencer Dinwiddie - Brooklyn (vs. Indiana)
Dinwiddie has really stepped up for the Nets lately, averaging 34 FPPG over his last five. That includes a 36 FP showing through 30 minutes at Chicago on Saturday with Kyrie Irving sidelined. Irving is questionable with a shoulder injury, and there’s a good chance Brooklyn won’t rush their superstar back into action. Either way, Dinwiddie makes for a strong DFS bargain with Irving less than 100% and Caris LeVert out of commission.
Giannis Antetokounmpo - Milwaukee (at Chicago)
Giannis follows the same write-up of Luka Doncic earlier in the article. The reigning MVP is expensive, but fully attainable considering that Indiana SF Justin Holiday clears plenty of cap space with his near-minimum price point. Once again, Renee Miller has all the details in her NBA DFS Bargains coverage. Taking both players in the same lineup makes for an excellent strategy, as Giannis is poised to impress against a Chicago team that ranks below average in team defensive efficiency. Making matters even better, the Bulls will be without Otto Porter Jr., leaving one less legitimate defender for Antetokounmpo to worry about (not like he was worried in the first place).
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - Toronto (vs. Charlotte)
Hollis-Jefferson has been asked to step up with the Raptors dealing with several injuries at the moment. He has been pretty good for the most part, tallying 30 and 35 fantasy points respectively against the Clippers and Blazers. “RHJ” took a step back with only 17 FP at Dallas on Saturday, but he’s still seeing 25-28 minutes nightly. That should translate to fantasy success (27-30+ FP) against a generous Charlotte defense that ranks 24th in d-eff to power forwards.
Mitchell Robinson - New York (vs. Cleveland)
Robinson has a “GTD” tag next to his name even though he’s probable for tonight’s game. Hopefully some people will avoid him for that reason. Even though Robinson will likely only see around 25 minutes, he is more than capable of racking up a solid return on investment. Case in point, the NYK center posted 38 FP in 26 minutes against Charlotte on Saturday. Mitchell finds himself in a cozy matchup vs. Cleveland, who ranks 26th in defensive efficiency to centers and below average in rebound rate.
