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 Sunday!
Mike Conley – Memphis (at Phoenix)
Conley has looked great lately with 42+ fantasy points in three of his past five games. Now he’ll see a favorably matchup at Phoenix to keep the pace. The Suns rank 27th in defensive efficiency vs opposing point guards, leaving the door open for Conley to put up some numbers. The Memphis floor general only produced 32 FP in his first meeting vs Phoenix (10/27), but a blowout curbed his production. We should see a more competitive game with the Suns playing at home with Devin Booker this time.
Also Consider: Damian Lillard, Kyle Lowry (better if Kawhi out), Tyus Jones (better if Rose out)
DeMar DeRozan – San Antonio (vs Orlando)
DeRozan has been very good for his new team this season, and that should continue in a home draw vs Orlando. The Magic don’t really have anyone to lock him down in the backcourt, ranking 22nd in defensive efficiency vs the shooting guard position. We should expect plenty of volume and minutes from DeRozan, subsequently raising his floor/ceiling potential on this brief four-game slate.
Also Consider: Devin Booker, Garrett Temple (FanDuel)
Andrew Wiggins – Minnesota (at Portland)
Wiggins has been somewhat mediocre this season, but I’m willing to take a chance on him tonight. First off, this game has a healthy 229 over/under that Wiggins should be able to tap into. Jeff Teague is out, Derrick Rose is questionable, and who knows if Jimmy Butler will actually play. Wiggins’ DFS value obviously rises if Rose and/or Butler miss this game, but I believe he’s a reasonable fantasy asset regardless of their status.
Also Consider: Kawhi Leonard (if playing), Trevor Ariza
Al-Farouq Aminu – Portland (vs Minnesota)
Aminu was in this spot yesterday, and he came through 35 FP in 32 minutes despite only going 2-8 from the field. That’s the beauty of Aminu’s game, as he racks up enough peripheral stats to produce fantasy value regardless if his shot is falling. Of course, there’s upside if he starts knocking it down. Minnesota ranks 27th vs power forwards and 24th in team defensive efficiency, making Aminu a strong value commodity yet again.
Also Consider: LaMarcus Aldridge, Serge Ibaka
Marc Gasol – Memphis (at Phoenix)
Marc Gasol has been a fantasy beast with 49 and 52 FP in his last two despite some tricky matchups vs Washington and Utah respectively. It should be smooth sailing against a Phoenix team that ranks dead last in defensive efficiency vs opposing centers and 23rd in rebound rate. Similar to his teammate, Mike Conley, Gasol’s minutes were curbed in his first meeting vs the Suns, but he still ended up with 40 FP in 30 minutes last Saturday. Taking another note from the Conley write-up: this game should be more competitive at Phoenix with Devin Booker back for the Suns. That’s good news for Conley and Gasol, and I’m looking towards both of them through all formats.
Also Consider: Karl-Anthony Towns, JaVale McGee
