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 Sunday!  

 

POINT GUARD

 

De’Aaron Fox – Sacramento (vs Utah)

 

Fox isn’t exactly cheap on FanDuel and DraftKings, but I believe he still deserves a strong look on both sites this evening. The Sacramento point guard has flexed some monstrous upside this season, and he now finds himself in a competitive home matchup with the second-highest over/under on the board (227). He already torched this opponent (Utah) twice in recent memory for 42 and 43 fantasy points respectively. The Jazz rank 24th in defensive efficiency vs opposing point guards, and Fox will look to take advantage once again.

Also Consider: Kemba Walker, Damian Lillard, Ricky Rubio  

 

SHOOTING GUARD

 

Jeremy Lamb – Charlotte (at Atlanta)

 

Looking from a team point of view, the Hornets have the best matchup of the night against an Atlanta team that ranks first in pace, dead last in overall defensive efficiency, and 24th in rebound rate. Jeremy Lamb will look to benefit within that, currently riding a heater with 34+ fantasy points in four of his past five games. Lamb has been looking for his shot more as of late, given that opposing defenses are leaving him open while trying to devote more defensive resources to the blazing-hot likes of Kemba Walker. As a result, Lamb should be able to step into another solid fantasy effort.

 

Also Consider: Buddy Hield, Tim Hardaway Jr, Iman Shumpert  

 

SMALL FORWARD

 

Kyle Anderson – Memphis (vs New York)

 

Anderson’s playing time has been through the roof lately, which really helps his fantasy floor/ceiling combination. Facing a New York team that ranks dead last in defensive efficiency vs opposing small forwards doesn’t hurt either. Anderson makes for a nice mid-range play on both FanDuel and DraftKings this evening. The opportunity cost at small forward isn’t very high, and I’m comfortable with him as a fallback value through all formats.

 

Also Consider: Josh Richardson, Joe Ingles, DeAndre’ Bembry (better if Bazemore is out)

 

POWER FORWARD

 

Jaren Jackson Jr. – Memphis (vs New York)

 

If you take a look at Jackson’s game log, you’ll notice some inconsistencies over the past month. That is expected for a rookie, but I believe we’ll see a strong outing tonight. This is a great matchup against a New York team that ranks 25th in defensive efficiency vs opposing power forwards. Jackson has notched 36+ fantasy points in two of his past three games, and he has even flexed upside of 51 FP recently via upside of steals and blocks. The power forward position is rich with solid plays, and Jackson is certainly towards the top of that list.

 

Also Consider: Marvin Bagley III, Noah Vonleh

 

CENTER

 

Rudy Gobert – Utah (at Sacramento)

 

I really like Rudy Gobert tonight, as his $8200 salary on FanDuel suggests he only needs an average game (39.3 FP) to come near a 5x multiplier on the price tag. That should be a reality in an above average matchup against a Sacramento team that ranks second in pace, 24th vs centers, and 27th in rebound rate. Gobert already dominated against the Kings with 44 and 42 fantasy points in his first two meetings of the year. There’s a chance he’ll see more usage with Donovan Mitchell out as well.

 

Also Consider: Jusuf Nurkic, Cody Zeller (value)
