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 Monday’s eight-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Luka Doncic - Dallas (vs. Minnesota)
Luka is expected to return after missing Saturday’s game at Atlanta. He’ll find himself in a beautiful home matchup against a fast-paced Minnesota team that is on the second leg of a back-to-back set. The Wolves rank 26th in team defensive efficiency and 20th in d-eff to point guards, creating an opening for Doncic to do his thing. The last time these two teams played, Luka went for 22 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. There’s a good chance he’ll top those marks tonight.
Caris LeVert - Brooklyn (vs. Orlando)
LeVert has been on fire lately, hitting 40+ fantasy points in four of his last five games. His salary is climbing as a result, but it’s still too low when considering that leap in production. LeVert should continue to see scoring opportunities with Kyrie Irving sidelined, and he’s a strong lift through all DFS formats tonight. The matchup against Orlando doesn’t look great on paper, but LeVert seems immune to that while seeing plenty of minutes to stuff the stat sheet.
Jae Crowder - Miami (at Cleveland)
Regardless if he’s starting or not, Jae Crowder makes for a fine DFS bargain tonight. Jimmy Butler will not play tonight, which should promote Crowder to a healthy role. Facing a Cleveland team that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to small forwards doesn’t hurt either. Crowder posted 35 FP in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday, and we could see similar efficiency in this rematch.
Brandon Clarke - Memphis (at LA Clippers)
Jaren Jackson Jr. will miss some time moving forward, meaning Brandon Clarke should see a stabilized workload in Memphis’ frontcourt. Clarke has been an efficient fantasy producer lately, and the increased playing time certainly helps his floor/ceiling combination for DFS purposes. Clarke should see at least 30 minutes tonight, and he’s averaging a solid 35 FPPG in his last five with 25 or more minutes.
Nikola Vucevic - Orlando (at Brooklyn)
Vucevic had a nice groove heading into the All-Star break, hitting 51+ fantasy points in three straight outings. He was able to keep that streak with a 58 FP effort vs. Dallas on Friday. Vucevic has had several days to rest up, so he should be primed for another strong performance against a Brooklyn team that currently ranks 28th in defensive efficiency to centers.
