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!
Kemba Walker – Charlotte (at Cleveland)
I was debating between Kemba Walker and Chris Paul for a similar salary, but Kemba ultimately gets the nod here. He’s squaring off against a Cleveland team that ranks 25th in defensive efficiency vs opposing point guards. On top of that, Cavaliers’ PG George Hill will not play tonight, taking away a capable defender to slow down Walker. Kemba was mediocre in his last game vs Cleveland, but the Hornets didn’t need him to do much while running away with a 32 point win. If this one stays competitive (helps that it’s at Cleveland), Walker could end up with his third 50+ FP outing in four games.
Gary Harris – Denver (vs Houston)
A few subpar shooting performances have plagued Harris’ recent fantasy output, but it’s comforting to see that he’s still getting a ton of minutes and opportunities. There’s a decent chance he’ll make good on those chances while facing a Houston team that ranks 19th in defensive efficiency vs opposing shooting guards. Fellow guard Jamal Murray will be locked into a tough matchup against Chris Paul, which could funnel more opportunities to Harris on the perimeter. Either way, he’s a nice pick on FanDuel and DraftKings within this abbreviated three-game slate.
Kevin Durant – Golden State (vs Atlanta)
It appears that Stephen Curry will miss another game, leaving Kevin Durant to shoulder the offensive load for the high-scoring Warriors. KD has thrived in that role with an outstanding 124 fantasy points over 69 minutes in his past two games sans Curry (62 FPPG). Even though the Warriors are on a tough back-to-back sequence after an emotional overtime loss at LAC, Durant should be in for more of the same. It help that he’s facing Atlanta at home, and the Hawks rank 28th in defensive efficiency with the fastest pace in the league. Find a way to work Durant in your lineup on this three-game slate.
Larry Nance Jr. – Cleveland (vs Charlotte)
Cleveland will continue to be shorthanded in the frontcourt with Kevin Love, Cedi Osman, and Sam Dekker all out. That should help secure minutes for Larry Nance Jr, who has been an efficient fantasy producer throughout his career. I have him pegged for 30+ minutes in this one, giving him a solid floor/ceiling combination to profile as a nice all-around play on both DFS sites. The matchup vs Charlotte isn’t great on paper, but I believe Nance will post a respectable outing while playing more minutes than usual.
Clint Capela – Houston (at Denver)
I like Nikola Jokic tonight, but it’s also important to snag Kevin Durant and/or Kemba Walker in your lineup as well. That has me looking towards Clint Capela as a cheaper option at center. This Houston-Denver matchup is the most competitive battle of the night, and Capela should see his usual 33-35 minutes within that. The Nuggets rank 19th in defensive efficiency vs opposing centers, which should give Capela enough room to meet fantasy value at the very least.
