NBA DFS Plays: Tuesday

This article aims to highlight some of the best NBA DFS Plays at every position for your FanDuel and DraftKings 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.

 

Now let’s move on to the NBA DFS Plays for Tuesday!

 

 

POINT GUARD

 

Kemba Walker – Charlotte (vs Miami)

 

Don’t look now, but Kemba Walker is among the top scorers in the NBA at the moment. He is averaging 31.7 real life points per game, which has boosted his fantasy average to an impressive 47.1 FPPG mark. He has even topped 52+ FP in three games this season. One of them came ten days ago at Miami, the same team he’ll face at home this evening. The Heat are on a back-to-back situation, so maybe Kemba can catch them on tired legs. No matter how you slice it, I’ll be looking to work Kemba into my tournament and cash game lineups. His blend of volume, minutes, shooting upside, and peripheral numbers makes for a fantastic play on FanDuel and DraftKings. He’s definitely a building block in my lineups.

 

Also Consider: Chris Paul, John Wall (better on DK)

Tournaments: Trae Young

 

 

SHOOTING GUARD

 

Evan Fournier – Orlando (vs Sacramento)

 

The Sacramento-Orlando game is ripe for the picking – for fantasy purposes of course. You’ll see plenty of players from this tilt littered throughout the article. Evan Fournier makes for an intriguing DFS play within that. The Kings’ defense seems to be trending the same direction as previous seasons – ranking bottom ten in overall defensive efficiency. They rank below average against opposing backcourts as well, which could create an opening for Fournier and company. Fournier had a bad outing at Milwaukee on Saturday, but this is a prime bounce-back situation to get him back on track. Feel confident blending him into a lineup through all formats.

 

Also Consider: Buddy Hield, Bradley Beal (better on DK)

Tournaments: Kent Bazemore

 

 

SMALL FORWARD

 

Nemanja Bjelica – Sacramento (at Orlando)

 

I have been gobbling up my shares of Bjelica over the past week. He hasn’t disappointed while registering 40+ fantasy points in three straight games. Bjelica has always had a fantasy-friendly profile as a tall, active forward who could rebound and knock down the deep-ball. His main holdup in recent seasons came from no clear path to playing time in Minnesota. Whenever he’d get 30+ minutes, he rarely disappointed from a DFS perspective. That’s what’s currently happening with his new team in Sacramento. Bjelica has seen 31+ minutes in three straight, so it’s no surprise the production is starting to climb. The Kings are encouraging him to shoot freely, which really unlocks his upside. The price has risen on Nemanja, but I’m still looking to him – especially for $6500 on FanDuel.

 

Also Consider: Kelly Oubre (if playing), Jeff Green (value)

Tournaments: Josh Richardson

 

 

POWER FORWARD

 

Pascal Siakam – Toronto (vs Philadelphia)

 

Siakam was in this spot yesterday, and he didn’t disappoint with a monster 48 fantasy point output at Milwaukee. Some of that had to do with Kawhi Leonard sitting out (he’s back tonight), but there’s no doubt that Siakam is gaining confidence along with his ascending playing time. His corresponding salary is still too cheap at $4400 on FanDuel and $3900. I’m looking to take advantage before the inevitable price hike comes.

 

Also Consider: Blake Griffin, Jaren Jackson Jr.

Tournaments: Larry Nance Jr.

 

 

CENTER

 

Willie Cauley-Stein – Sacramento (at Orlando)

 

I mentioned how this Sacramento-Orlando game has very nice fantasy potential. Willie Cauley-Stein could benefit from a matchup vs an Orlando frontcourt that ranks 20th in defensive efficiency vs centers and bottom ten in rebound rate. If you recall, this same Magic team ranked 23rd and 28th in those respective categories last year. Meanwhile, Willie Cauley-Stein is still underpriced despite notching back-to-back efforts of 44+ fantasy points. That marks his third game of the season with at least that much production, and you can get him for a discount with a $7100 salary on FanDuel – only $6300 on DraftKings.   

 

Also Consider: Nikola Vucevic

Tournaments: Dewayne Dedmon
