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 12-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET on Wednesday.
Ricky Rubio - Phoenix (vs. Indiana)
Rubio’s DFS production has been up-and-down lately. He underachieved in a tough matchup at Boston this week, but the Phoenix PG has otherwise posted 65 and 38 fantasy points against the Knicks and Spurs respectively. Rubio currently holds a non-imposing mid-range salary that should lead to a nice return on investment with a competitive home tilt vs. Indiana (222 over/under) on tap.
Lou Williams - LA Clippers (at Atlanta)
Williams is another strong mid-range lift who could outperform his salary. That is, of course, if Paul George (hamstring) remains sidelined. Williams is averaging 34 FPPG over the past six with George out, which is a solid fantasy baseline. There’s a good chance Lou will surpass that threshold against an Atlanta team that ranks 24th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards.
Joe Ingles - Utah (at Golden State)
Ingles is a cost-effective option with a beautiful matchup. The Utah wing has tallied 28+ fantasy points in four of his last five games, crossing 40 FP in two of those. We can expect another strong showing at Golden State tonight, as the Warriors rank 25th in overall team defensive efficiency. Ingles isn’t a flashy fantasy commodity, but he plays starter minutes with the ability to contribute in almost every statistical category.
Marvin Bagley - Sacramento (at Detroit)
Bagley is way too cheap tonight, and I’m locking him in through all formats due to the price discrepancy. The Sacramento forward was seeing minutes in the 20’s while working back from an injury, but he has topped the 30-minute mark in three-straight games. The continued absence of Richaun Holmes is the reason behind that. As a result, Bagley has contributed 36+ FP in two straight, and he should be able to cross that threshold against a Detroit team that ranks 25th in defensive efficiency to frontcourts.
Deandre Ayton - Phoenix (vs. Indiana)
It took him some time, but Ayton has found his groove since rejoining the Suns’ rotation in late December. The Phoenix big man has achieved 47+ fantasy points in three straight games, and he’ll continue to see a ton of work with Aron Baynes sidelined. That puts Ayton in a “smash spot” against the Pacers - who rank 28th in defensive efficiency to centers.
