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

Malcolm Brogdon - Indiana (vs. San Antonio) - DK: $7,600 / FD: $7,500 / Yahoo: $29

Brogdon has battled through some ailments and general inconsistencies this month, leading to a slight dip in price. However, it seems like he’s back on track with 44+ FP in two of his last three. The salary is still lower than it should be, and the matchup looks great against a San Antonio team that ranks 22nd in defensive efficiency to point guards.

Also Consider: Russell Westbrook, Darius Garland, Ben Simmons

SHOOTING GUARD

Furkan Korkmaz - Philadelphia (vs. Golden State) - DK: $4,800 / FD: $4,700 / Yahoo: $13

If Tobias Harris and/or Seth Curry (both questionable) are out, then Korkmaz becomes a safe DFS bargain. If both of them play, then Furkan is still playable, but he’ll be categorized as more of a value filler than priority play. In the last two games with Harris out, Korkmaz has contributed 45 and 37 fantasy points with 30 and 38 minutes respectively. If he gets that kind of run, I’m expecting him to produce while playing up in pace against Golden State.

Also Consider: Josh Jackson, Bradley Beal

SMALL FORWARD

Lu Dort - Oklahoma City (at Washington) - DK: $7,000 / FD: $6,400 / Yahoo: $22

Dort has transformed himself from offensive liability to the de-facto top scoring option for Oklahoma City. We all know about his 42 point outburst, but Dort has backed that up with 45 and 39 FP in his last two since then. Now he’s looking at a beautiful matchup at Washington, who ranks first in pace and 26th in team defensive efficiency. The Thunder will need Dort to keep shooting, and his FD/Yahoo salary seems manageable.

**UPDATE: Dort has been ruled out.

Also Consider: Jimmy Butler (if playing), Saddiq Bey

POWER FORWARD

Aleksej Pokusevski - Oklahoma City (at Washington) - DK: $5,500 / FD: $4,800 / Yahoo: $19

As mentioned in the previous write-up, this is a great game to target for DFS purposes. Washington plays fast, and neither team has much of a defense. Pokusevski could benefit, as he’s fresh off a 41 FP effort in his return to the lineup yesterday. Definitely pay attention to the player news, as you never really know what a tanking team is going to roll out. Having said that, Pokusevski is a great DFS bargain if he’s in the lineup.

Also Consider: Jae’Sean Tate, Isaiah Stewart

CENTER

Bam Adebayo - Miami (vs. Houston) - DK: $8,100 / FD: $7,700 / Yahoo: $34

There’s some blowout risk in this game, but Houston has actually been playing better lately. They’ll catch Miami on a back-to-back as well, which should keep things more competitive. Adebayo could thrive against a Houston team that ranks 23rd in defensive efficiency to centers and 27th in rebound rate. There’s plenty of value on this slate, so you should be able to easily fit Bam into a confident lineup.

**UPDATE: Bam Adebayo has been ruled out. Dewayne Dedmon is an interesting cheap play.

Also Consider: Joel Embiid, Moses Brown

ALSO CONSIDER

If any of the aforementioned value options don’t work out, then Jae’Sean Tate (PF - HOU), Isaiah Stewart (PF - DET), and Saddiq Bey (SF - DET) are waiting in the wings. Stewart and Bey will benefit from the extended run with a depleted Pistons’ roster, and Tate has been on a roll with 41+ FP in two straight.

Darius Garland (PG - CLE) is someone to consider at a competitive point guard position. Even with Sexton back in the lineup, Garland is still taking over the offense with a nice 38 FPPG over his last three.
