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 the six-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET on Tuesday. 

POINT GUARD

Chris Paul - Oklahoma City (at Brooklyn) 

Paul makes for an accommodating mid-range pick with a nice matchup to boot. Oklahoma City will travel to Brooklyn tonight, where a competitive game environment (Nets favored by 2.5) should be waiting for them. CP3 has been solid lately, posting 36 FP in four of his last five outings. We can safely consider that his floor, and I’m expecting upside beyond 40 FP against a Brooklyn team that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to point guards. 

Also Consider: Kyle Lowry, Derrick Rose

SHOOTING GUARD

Devin Booker - Phoenix (vs. Sacramento) 

Booker is expensive, but I’m still making him a priority through all formats. Looking towards fellow shooting guard Terence Davis (of Toronto) helps alleviate some of the cost. As for Booker, he has been an absolute machine lately while averaging 47 FPPG over his past six games. His minutes are through the roof (37-40), which should keep him going in a beautiful matchup vs. Sacramento. The Kings rank 28th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards, and Booker torched them for 54 FP the last time they met (Dec. 28). 

Also Consider: Buddy Hield, Terence Davis

SMALL FORWARD

Kelly Oubre Jr. - Phoenix (vs. Sacramento) 

I’ll be looking to stack Booker and Kelly Oubre Jr. in the same lineup without much hesitation. This is one of the better game environments of the night, as both teams rank below average in overall defensive efficiency. More specifically, the Kings rank 25th in defensive efficiency to small forwards, which should help propel Oubre to another strong fantasy outing. The Phoenix forward has been producing alongside Booker lately, topping 46 FP in four of his last five. That includes a 50 FP effort at Sacramento a few weeks ago. 

Also Consider: Danilo Gallinari, Carmelo Anthony 

POWER FORWARD

Anthony Davis - LA Lakers (vs. New York) 

Davis is playing some outstanding basketball, and that has translated to 72+ fantasy points (not a typo) in back-to-back games. Some of that was exaggerated due to eight blocks Sunday vs. Detroit, but “AD” certainly has the ability to stuff the stat sheet. Davis has an excellent opportunity to keep thriving against a New York team that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. Needless to say, he’s a priority spend on tonight’s slate. 

Also Consider: Robert Covington, Christian Wood

CENTER

Steven Adams - Oklahoma City (at Brooklyn) 

Adams is a comfortable mid-range pick with a sprinkle of upside. In fact, his DFS outlook mirrors that of teammate Chris Paul, who was mentioned earlier in this article. Both OKC players have agreeable salaries, solid fantasy floors, and a kind matchup to exceed their baseline. Adams has achieved 40+ FP in two straight, and there’s a good chance he’ll keep that going while playing up in pace at Brooklyn. 

Also Consider: Andre Drummond, Gorgui Dieng (if Towns out)
