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 two-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.

POINT GUARD

Mike Conley - Utah (at Memphis) - DK: $7,000 / FD: $8,100 / Yahoo: $28

Conley has been really good in this series, hitting 44+ fantasy points in all three games. The return of Donovan Mitchell hasn’t limited his fantasy output whatsoever, which is a great sign moving forward. Conley will continue to be a threat for 20+ points and 10+ assists in Monday’s road contest, and his DFS salary hasn’t risen alongside that production. Go ahead and roster him throughout all formats without hesitation.

Also Consider: Ben Simmons, Ja Morant

SHOOTING GUARD

Dillon Brooks - Memphis (vs. Utah) - DK: $6,400 / FD: $7,100 / Yahoo: $24

Brooks isn’t quite as expensive as guys like Bradley Beal and Donovan Mitchell, but you still feel good about his relative output. The Memphis guard will continue to see plenty of minutes and opportunities to maintain his 40 FPPG averager in this series. He only went 1-7 on three-pointers in Game 3, but still ended up with 38 FP. Imagine his upside if he finds the range from outside.

Also Consider: Seth Curry, Donovan Mitchell

SMALL FORWARD

Kyle Anderson - Memphis (vs. Utah) - DK: $6,200 / FD: $6,900 / Yahoo: $23

There aren’t many options at small forward tonight, so it seems like Anderson is the default pick. He’ll be the popular choice for good reason, as the Memphis forward has notched 40+ FP in two of three games in this series. Meanwhile, Bojan Bogdanovic has seen his role dissipate with Mitchell back in the lineup, and Rui Hachimura continues to disappoint. Anderson is the top small forward by process of elimination, but he also grades out pretty well due because of his ability to produce in every statistical category.

Also Consider: Danny Green

POWER FORWARD

Tobias Harris - Philadelphia (at Washington) - DK: $7,300 / FD: $7,900 / Yahoo: $32

Harris went for 51 FP in Game 1, then he tweaked his ankle in Game 2. He came back on Saturday with a solid 41 FP showing in 31 minutes, so Tobias should be ready to roll for Game 4. This is an outstanding matchup against the fast-paced Wizards, as Harris has really taken advantage all series. He’s a priority spend on this DFS slate.

Also Consider: Daniel Gafford, Royce O’Neale

CENTER

Rudy Gobert - Utah (at Memphis) - DK: $7,800 / FD: $8,500 / Yahoo: $34

Joel Embiid is great, but there’s a chance Rudy Gobert will give you similar production for a fraction of the cost. That’s assuming Embiid doesn’t go bonkers. After a rough Game 1 plagued by foul trouble, Gobert has bounced back for 43 and 52 FP respectively in the past two games. That’s a realistic range for the presumed Defensive Player of the Year, which really isn’t all that different from Embiid’s fantasy expectation.

Also Consider: Joel Embiid

POTENTIAL BARGAINS

Seth Curry (SG - PHI) is a nice value source on this slate. He is averaging 27 minutes per contest in this series, which he has used to hit 27+ FP in two of three games.

Danny Green (SF - PHI) is a very similar play compared to his teammate, Curry. I already talked about how tough the small forward position is, and Danny Green is a fine bargain to help solve that problem. He has gone for 24+ FP in two of three in this series.

Daniel Gafford (PF - WAS) continues to impress by hitting 25-30 FP in all three games of this series. He’s a fine value filler if he blends organically into your lineup. Otherwise, Royce O’Neale (PF - UTA) is a little bit cheaper if you need the extra savings. O’Neale doesn’t have as solid of a fantasy floor, but he’s seeing 33+ minutes for the Jazz.
