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 Wednesday’s six-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
De’Aaron Fox - Sacramento (vs. New Orleans)
Fox will continue to shoulder the offensive load for Sacramento, which has led to a consistent 40 FPPG average over his last six. I’d be surprised if he didn’t surpass that threshold tonight while playing up in pace against the Pelicans. New Orleans ranks 28th in defensive efficiency to point guards, and this is the best fantasy environment of the night with a 233.5 over/under. Fox should find plenty of success within that, making him an excellent DFS lift through all formats.
Duncan Robinson - Miami (vs. Charlotte)
I’m looking to spend heavily at point guard and power forward tonight, meaning we’ll need to find some value at the other positions. Duncan Robinson makes that list at the shooting guard spot. He has seen 36+ minutes in three straight outings, which has translated to a solid 34 FPPG mark. His fantasy potential would rise if Jimmy Butler (questionable) is out, but Robinson carries DFS value either way. It helps that he’s facing a Charlotte team that ranks 25th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards.
Tim Hardaway Jr. - Dallas (vs. Denver)
Don’t look now, but Tim Hardaway Jr. is heating up. He has notched 38 fantasy points in back-to-back games, something that is stabilized by seeing 37+ minutes in each of those contests. The absence of Seth Curry (questionable) has given him a boost, so that should remain the case if Curry misses his third-straight outing. Tonight’s matchup isn’t too shabby either, as Hardaway finds himself in a competitive battle against the Nuggets - who rank 28th in defensive efficiency to small forwards.
Also Consider: Will Barton, De’Andre Hunter
John Collins - Atlanta (vs. New York)
The power forward position is absolutely loaded tonight. John Collins, Bam Adebayo, Zion Williamson, Julius Randle, and Christian Wood all make for solid DFS lifts through all formats. Of that group, I’m siding with Collins as my top choice. The Hawks’ forward has tallied 48+ fantasy points in four of his last six, and I’m expecting him to produce against a New York team that ranks 28th in defensive efficiency to power forwards. The last time these two teams met, Collins posted 59 FP in 49 minutes. We could see him above the 50 FP plateau again tonight.
Thon Maker - Detroit (at Philadelphia)
Maker is a dirt-cheap value filler to help round out your lineup. The matchup doesn’t look good at Philadelphia, but I’m still optimistic that Maker can post a solid return on investment. He’s looking at more minutes with John Henson ruled out, possibly nudging him to the 25-30 minute range. Maker is averaging 26 FPPG in his last five with at least 23 minutes, and that’s a serviceable fantasy score when considering the bargain price tag.
