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

POINT GUARD

Derrick White - Boston (at Oklahoma City) - DK: $4,700 / FD: $4,600 / Yahoo: $17

It’s hard to stay away from White and his teammates in a fantastic matchup against Oklahoma City. However, there’s looming blowout risk associated with this game. I’m not worried about that for White, as his salary is much cheaper than guys like Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Blowout or no blowout, White should be able to produce solid value considering an inflated role of 32-36 minutes with Marcus Smart sitting out tonight. In fact, you could argue that White is the best bargain of the night.

Also Consider: Cade Cunningham, Luka Doncic

SHOOTING GUARD

CJ McCollum - New Orleans (at Charlotte) - DK: $9,200 / FD: $8,400 / Yahoo: $39

McCollum has been an absolute beast ever since joining the Pelicans. Case in point: he has hit 39+ fantasy points in 14 straight games. He exceeded 45 fantasy points in eight of those contests. There’s a good chance McCollum gets there again while playing up in pace at Charlotte, a team that ranks third in possessions/game and 26th in team defensive efficiency.

Also Consider: Dennis Schroder, Reggie Bullock

SMALL FORWARD

Anthony Edwards - Minnesota (at Dallas) - DK: $7,400 / FD: $7,800 / Yahoo: $28

Edwards noticed a lull coming out of the All-Star break, but the electric second-year player is back to stuffing the stat sheet with 43+ fantasy points in three of his last four outings. The Wolves are playing fast and scoring in bunches with Edwards getting in on the action. He’s a great play that becomes even better if Karl-Anthony Towns (questionable) is ruled out. This would put more usage on Edwards’ plate, and we know he’s not shy about putting up his shots.

Also Consider: Kevin Durant, Jaylen Brown, Dorian Finney-Smith

POWER FORWARD

Pascal Siakam - Toronto (at Chicago) - DK: $8,900 / FD: $9,100 / Yahoo: $37

Siakam is expensive, but I believe he’ll be worth every penny in a competitive matchup with the Bulls. First off, his opponent (Chicago) ranks 26th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. The last time these two teams met (Feb. 3), Siakam posted 57 fantasy points. The Toronto forward has rattled off 49+ fantasy points in four of his last six, and this is a great spot to post another strong showing.

Also Consider: Trendon Watford, Marvin Bagley, Jarred Vanderbilt

CENTER

Chris Boucher - Toronto (at Chicago) - DK: $4,800 / FD: $4,500 / Yahoo: $14

Boucher’s minutes have been all over the place, but I believe he’ll see respectable playing time against the Bulls tonight in an effort to contain Nikola Vucevic. Looking at that last matchup against Chicago, Boucher chipped in 38 fantasy points in 24 minutes. We all know Boucher is an efficient fantasy producer who will easily post value if he sees 25 or so minutes. I believe he’ll get there tonight, and fantasy upside will ensue.

Also Consider: Jonas Valanciunas

POTENTIAL BARGAINS

Trendon Watford (PF - POR) isn’t a true bargain anymore, but he’s a mid-range pick who could offer some value. Keep in mind that Watford has been carrying the hobbled Blazers at times, hitting 40+ fantasy points in three of his last five.

Jarred Vanderbilt (PF - MIN) could see extra minutes (30-32) with Jaden McDaniels sidelined. He could find more rebounds if Towns (questionable) is out as well. Vanderbilt is a cheap tournament play if you are looking for a filler at the power forward position.
