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 Tuesday’s nine-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Shaquille Harrison - Chicago (vs. Cleveland)
Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine are out while Ryan Arcidiacono is questionable. If Arcidiacono misses another game, Shaquille Harrison will be forced into starter minutes. That was the case over the last two games, where Harrison posted 51 and 34 fantasy points in 33 and 35 minutes respectively. Making matters even better, he’s facing a Cleveland team that ranks dead last in defensive efficiency to point guards.
DeMar DeRozan - San Antonio (vs. Dallas)
DeRozan will keep putting the Spurs on his back in this Texas rivalry. That has resulted in 43+ fantasy points over the past two games, and there’s a good chance DeMar will surpass that threshold tonight. The matchup vs. Dallas doesn’t look great on paper, but DeRozan posted 51 FP in his last meeting with the Mavs (Feb. 26). LaMarcus Aldridge and Dejounte Murray are out for San Antonio, meaning DeMar should continue to see a ton of usage. He’s a strong DFS choice through all formats as a result.
Mikal Bridges - Phoenix (at Portland)
The Suns have been an offensive machine lately, while Bridges has been able to get in on the fun with 34 and 40 fantasy points respectively. He’ll continue to see a full workload (36+) minutes with Kelly Oubre Jr. sidelined indefinitely. Bridges’ mid-range salary hasn’t caught up to his recent performances, and there’s a chance he’ll keep the momentum against a Portland team that ranks 20th in defensive efficiency to small forwards.
Larry Nance Jr. - Cleveland (at Chicago)
Tristan Thompson and Kevin Porter Jr. are out tonight, leaving Nance to soak up plenty of frontcourt minutes. That was the case on Sunday where Nance posted 31 fantasy points in 43 minutes vs. San Antonio. If Nance sees somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 or so minutes, I believe he can come through with an impressive fantasy score tonight. His opponent, Chicago, ranks 28th in defensive efficiency to power forwards.
Aron Baynes - Phoenix (at Portland)
Deandre Ayton is questionable tonight. If he can’t play, then Aron Baynes becomes a steady value choice through all formats. Baynes filled in for Ayton over the past two games, stepping up with 65 and 35 fantasy points. That 65 FP showing came against the same Portland team he’ll see tonight and the Blazers rank 24th in defensive efficiency to centers.
