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 Tuesday’s eight-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Shake Milton - Philadelphia (at LA Lakers)
Philadelphia is banged-up at the moment with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid out. Josh Richardson is doubtful as well. Milton has stepped up in an expanded role, hitting 34+ fantasy points in three straight. That includes a 51 FP outburst against the Clippers on Sunday. Milton has seen 37+ minutes in two of his past three games, and the Sixers will need him to carry their backcourt once again. Needless to say, Milton is still too cheap when considering the heightened role. Go ahead and give him a look through all DFS formats.
Also Consider: De’Aaron Fox, Lonzo Ball
D’Angelo Russell - Minnesota (at New Orleans)
This Wolves-Pelicans matchup pits two of the fastest-paced teams against each other. That results in the highest over/under of the night, currently standing at 247 total points. D’Angelo Russell should undisputedly lead the Minnesota side, especially with Karl-Anthony Towns still sidelined. Russell is averaging 46 FPPG over his last six games, and that’s a realistic baseline tonight. Of course, there’s upside well beyond that when considering this elite fantasy environment.
Tobias Harris - Philadelphia (at LA Lakers)
As mentioned earlier, the 76ers are lacking playmakers tonight. That should promote Tobias Harris to more usage against the Lakers. Harris has been seeing a ton of minutes (40 last game), and he notched 58 FP last week vs. New York. Tonight’s draw in Los Angeles doesn’t look great, but Tobias should see a ton of opportunities to return solid fantasy value. I’m expecting him to take 20+ shots while posting healthy peripheral numbers across the board.
Trey Lyles - San Antonio (at Charlotte)
Jakob Poeltl is out and LaMarcus Aldridge is doubtful. Trey Lyles will find himself in another full-time role as a result. He has thrived with 48 and 35 fantasy points in two games (36+ minutes in both) with Poeltl/Aldridge sidelined. Needless to say, he’s still too cheap when considering the added responsibility. Making matters even better, Lyles has one of the best matchups on the board, as Charlotte ranks dead last in defensive efficiency to power forwards.
Alex Len - Sacramento (vs. Washington)
Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley will continue to miss time for Sacramento, which provides a clear path to minutes for Alex Len. He has looked good in that role while averaging 21 minutes and 30 fantasy points over his last three games. Posting 39 FP in 27 minutes vs. Detroit on Sunday gives him plenty of momentum while entering tonight’s juicy draw against the Wizards - who rank 24th in defensive efficiency to centers.
