NBA DFS Plays: Sunday 3/8

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 Sunday’s six-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.  

POINT GUARD

Collin Sexton - Cleveland (vs. San Antonio) 

Darius Garland is out and Kevin Porter Jr. is highly questionable for Cleveland. That puts more responsibility on Sexton’s shoulders as one of the few playmakers available for the Cavs. He has lived up to that with 51+ fantasy points in two of his past three outings. Sexton could find more upside in tonight’s welcoming matchup vs. San Antonio - who ranks 26th in defensive efficiency to point guards. 

Also Consider: Kyle Lowry, Aaron Holiday  

SHOOTING GUARD

Jimmy Butler - Miami (at Washington) 

Butler is coming off an incredible 56 fantasy point showing (28-8-6) against the Pelicans on Friday. He has an even better matchup tonight, as his opponent (Washington) ranks 28th to shooting guards and 29th in team defensive efficiency. The last time Miami faced the Wizards (1/22), Butler poured in 48 fantasy points through 33 minutes. That’s a realistic baseline with upside for more tonight. 

Also Consider: DeMar DeRozan, Norman Powell 

SMALL FORWARD

Pascal Siakam - Toronto (at Sacramento) 

There should be enough value to roster Butler, Siakam, and Wood (more on him shortly) in the same lineup. All three of them are looking at promising matchups, as Siakam will face a Sacramento team that ranks 24th in defensive efficiency to small forwards. Pascal has notched 50 fantasy points in two of his last four outings, and there’s reason to believe he can climb towards that mark in this comfortable draw. 

Also Consider: Rudy Gay, Cedi Osman 

POWER FORWARD

Christian Wood - Detroit (at New York) 

Wood has been a beast for the Pistons ever since Andre Drummond left town. He’s averaging 42 FPPG over his last eight games, and that represents a safe baseline moving forward. There’s room for Wood to overachieve against a New York team that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. I’d be surprised if he didn’t top 40 FP in this confident draw, and his upside extends well beyond that. 

Also Consider: Robert Covington, Trey Lyles 

CENTER

Nikola Vucevic - Orlando (at Houston) 

Vucevic has been on fire with 48+ fantasy points in four of his last five games. He’s participating in the highest-scoring game of the night with a 233 over/under. Facing an undersized Houston frontcourt opens the door for Vucevic to keep producing. He’s expensive, but I highly recommend rearranging your lineup to make Orlando’s big man work for DFS purposes. He’s the best center option through all formats tonight. 

Also Consider: Mitchell Robinson
