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 three-game main slate starting at 6:00 ET on Sunday. 

POINT GUARD

Markelle Fultz - Orlando (vs. Golden State) 

You are going to see plenty of recommendations from Orlando in this article. That’s because the Magic will host Golden State, who ranks 27th in team defensive efficiency this season. In other words, Orlando has one of the better matchups of this abbreviated three-game slate. There’s more usage to go around with Nikola Vucevic still on the sidelines as well. Fultz makes for a solid mid-range lift within that, as he has held a steady 28 FPPG mark over his last four. He’ll have a great chance to exceed that against a Warriors team that ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to point guards. 

Also Consider: Fred VanVleet, Patrick Beverley 

SHOOTING GUARD

Evan Fournier - Orlando (vs. Golden State) 

Fournier and Fultz have been holding down the Orlando backcourt, and they both make for strong “per dollar” DFS choices tonight. I already mentioned the Warriors’ struggling defense, as Golden State also ranks 27th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards. Fournier has been pretty good lately while carrying a consistent 35 FPPG over his last six games. He should thrive in this welcoming matchup, profiling as a strong DFS target in this shortened slate. 

Also Consider: Lou Williams, Jordan McRae (value filler) 

SMALL FORWARD

Bojan Bogdanovic - Utah (at Toronto) 

Paul George and Pascal Siakam are worthy selections tonight, but Bojan Bogdanovic has some of the best “per dollar” upside at the small forward position. Granted, that’s predicated on him knocking down a high percentage of long jumpers, but he’s one of the few mid-range DFS commodities who could absolutely blow their salaries out of the water tonight. Bogdanovic has come up big with a 37 FPPG average over his past six games, including a 47 FP outing at Memphis on Friday. He could keep the heater alive in this competitive draw in Toronto. 

Also Consider: Paul George, Alec Burks (tournaments) 

POWER FORWARD

Chris Boucher - Toronto (vs. Utah) 

This recommendation depends on the status of Serge Ibaka, who is questionable to return for the Raptors. If Ibaka plays, Boucher falls off value consideration completely. If Ibaka is out, Boucher is one of the better bargain picks of this slate. Boucher has tallied at least 20 FP in five of his last six games with Ibaka out, even hitting 31+ FP in two of those. That’s more than enough to satisfy his near-minimum salary. 

Also Consider: Kawhi Leonard, JaMychal Green 

CENTER

Mo Bamba - Orlando (vs. Golden State) 

As mentioned earlier, Nikola Vucevic will continue to miss time for Orlando. Bamba didn’t see as much playing time with Aaron Gordon returning last game, but he’s still a solid DFS bargain while expecting somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-22 minutes. It helps that Bamba will face the Warriors, who rank 27th in defensive efficiency to centers. On top of that, Al-Farouq Aminu will miss some time in the Orlando frontcourt as well. That should help solidify minutes for Bamba, who represents a strong DFS choice through all formats. 

Also Consider: Montrezl Harrell
