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 Wednesday’s nine-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.  

POINT GUARD

Luka Doncic - Dallas (at San Antonio) 

Doncic is pricey, but he should be worth every penny tonight. The All-Star finds himself in a promising matchup at San Antonio with one of the highest over/under (232) of the night. The Spurs rank 25th in defensive efficiency to point guards, which sets Doncic up for success. His ankle is still less than 100%, but that didn’t slow him down on Monday - where he posted 47 fantasy points in only 25 minutes vs. Minnesota. 

Also Consider: Spencer Dinwiddie, Dejounte Murray 

SHOOTING GUARD

Caris LeVert - Brooklyn (at Washington) 

LeVert just keeps producing, hitting 40+ fantasy points in four of his last six games. You could argue that tonight’s matchup at Washington is his best draw in recent memory as well. The Wizards rank 27th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards, and LeVert should continue to see plenty of opportunities with Kyrie Irving sidelined. He’s an excellent DFS play through all formats as a result. 

Also Consider: DeMar DeRozan, Marcus Smart 

SMALL FORWARD

Tobias Harris - Philadelphia (at Cleveland) 

Ben Simmons will miss some time moving forward, meaning the rest of Philadelphia’s starting lineup will need to step up. Harris has notched 39+ fantasy points in five of his last seven outings, and the expected uptick will only help his production. Facing a Cleveland team that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to small forwards certainly moves the needle as well. Put it all together, and Tobias steps in as a strong mid-range play to confidently select through all DFS formats. 

Also Consider: Jaylen Brown, Jae Crowder 

POWER FORWARD

Al Horford - Philadelphia (at Cleveland) 

Horford’s salary has bottomed-out over the last few months. Now is the time to buy-low, as the veteran big man is back in the starting lineup with Ben Simmons out. Granted, poor shooting left him with an underwhelming performance on Monday (26 FP), but it’s nice to see that Horford tallied 30 minutes. That level of playing time could translate to respectable fantasy value tonight, as the matchup at Cleveland is agreeable. 

Also Consider: Robert Covington, Trey Lyles

CENTER

Jakob Poeltl - San Antonio (vs. Dallas) 

LaMarcus Aldridge will not play tonight, which opens the door for Jakob Poeltl to see more minutes. The last two times Aldridge was out (Jan. 27 @ CHI & Jan. 29 vs. UTA), Poeltl stepped up for 40 and 24 fantasy points respectively. He should see 25-30 or so minutes tonight, which would translate to solid fantasy production given Poeltl’s usually sturdy FP/minute efficiency. 

Also Consider: Gorgui Dieng
