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 10-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Reggie Jackson - Detroit (at Memphis)
Derrick Rose only played 12 minutes yesterday, leaving early with a groin injury. There’s a good chance the veteran will miss tonight’s contest. If that’s the case, Reggie Jackson will find himself in a heightened role. “R-Jax” stepped up for 33 FP in 34 minutes yesterday, and he’s looking at a strong matchup at Memphis (26th vs. backcourts) tonight.
Also Consider: De’Aaron Fox, Elfrid Payton
Spencer Dinwiddie - Brooklyn (vs. Phoenix)
Kyrie Irving is going to miss some time moving forward, meaning Dinwiddie will lead Brooklyn’s offense. Dinwiddie has been pretty sharp even with Irving in the lineup, hitting 35+ fantasy points in five of his last seven games. He’s too cheap when considering an increased usage rate with the potential for more minutes. Making matters even better, Dinwiddie will face a Phoenix team that ranks 23rd in defensive efficiency to point guards.
Jaylen Brown - Boston (at Atlanta)
Kemba Walker is doubtful and Marcus Smart is questionable tonight. That will likely funnel more usage towards Brown and the other Boston starters. Truth be told, Brown would be a DFS priority regardless of the Celtics’ injury predicament. He’s in a position to thrive against an Atlanta team that plays fast while ranking 24th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards and dead last to small forwards. Brown is coming off a sweet 46 FP effort vs. Philadelphia on Saturday, and there’s reason to believe he’ll fall within that range again tonight.
Draymond Green - Golden State (at Washington)
There’s no shortage of quality plays at the power forward position. However, Green makes for an enticing mid-range pick. A high-scoring tilt at Washington (234 over/under) helps his cause, as the Wizards rank 25th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. Green has been efficient lately, hitting 49 and 50 fantasy points in two of his past three games. This is one of his better matchups in recent memory, so we are optimistic he can keep that momentum.
Nikola Vucevic - Orlando (at Charlotte)
Vucevic finds himself in one of the best matchups for a big man. His opponent, Charlotte, ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to centers. Nikola has been somewhat up-and-down from a fantasy standpoint, but he has reached for upside of 43+ FP in three of his past six. There’s an extremely good chance he’ll top that threshold again tonight.
