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 7:30 ET.

POINT GUARD

Reggie Jackson - LA Clippers (vs. Utah) - DK: $5,200 / FD: $5,500 / Yahoo: $17

Jackson makes for a realistic bargain on this slate. The point guard position is somewhat “iffy” tonight, as Trae Young and Ben Simmons aren’t exactly locks when considering their salaries. Meanwhile, Jackson carries a non-imposing price tag despite averaging 31 fantasy points and 33 minutes over the last two games. Rajon Rondo didn’t even play in those contests, so it looks like the PG spot will belong to Jackson moving forward.

Also Consider: Ben Simmons, Shake Milton (GPP)

SHOOTING GUARD

Donovan Mitchell - Utah (at LA Clippers) - DK: $9,000 / FD: $9,700 / Yahoo: $39

Mitchell is a little bit cheaper than guys like Kawhi Leonard and Joel Embiid on this slate despite having a similar projection. If Mike Conley (questionable) misses another game, then Mitchell will carry heavy usage en route to another strong fantasy showing. The Utah guard is averaging 50 FPPG through three games in this series, and he has shown no signs of slowing down.

Also Consider: Joe Ingles (if Conley out), Furkan Korkmaz

SMALL FORWARD

Danilo Gallinari - Atlanta (vs. Philadelphia) - DK: $4,600 / FD: $5,300 / Yahoo: $13

De’Andre Hunter is sidelined, and the Hawks briefly asked Solomon Hill to absorb his minutes. While Hill remains in the starting lineup, his minutes playing time has dwindled, seeing 8 and 14 minutes respectively in the past two games. Gallinari has been taking on a larger role off the bench, tallying 26 and 29 minutes for 35 and 21 fantasy points respectively in the past two. I’m expecting Gallo to keep getting minutes and opportunities to produce. He’s a respectable value on this shortened slate.

Also Consider: Nicolas Batum, Bojan Bogdanovic

POWER FORWARD

Royce O’Neale - Utah (at LA Clippers) - DK: $4,900 / FD: $5,800 / Yahoo: $16

Love it or hate it, Royce O’Neale is a viable option on this two-game slate. O’Neale has actually been pretty good for DFS purposes throughout the playoffs, only disappointing in one of his last four games. Sure, he’s not the most efficient fantasy option, but he’s still cheap while seeing 36-40 minutes per contest. Let’s just hope he can find enough boards and steals to meet fantasy value.

Also Consider: John Collins, Marcus Morris

CENTER

Joel Embiid - Philadelphia (at Atlanta) - DK: $10,500 / FD: $11,200 / Yahoo: $48

I won’t reach for Embiid on DFS sites that have multi-position eligibility. However, if you have to roster a true center, then arranging your lineup around Embiid makes sense. He’s technically questionable, although most reports suggest he’ll continue to play through the knee issue. He has done well despite that ailment, hitting 61+ FP in every game this series. Sure, Embiid is expensive, but he legitimately has the best floor/ceiling combination of this slate.

Also Consider: Rudy Gobert

POTENTIAL BARGAINS

Furkan Korkmaz (SG - PHI) could see more minutes with Danny Green out. We don’t know exactly how Philadelphia’s rotation will play out, as Shake Milton (PG - PHI) and Matisse Thybulle (SF - PHI) are GPP options who could benefit from Green’s absence. However, Korkmaz saw the bump after Green went down last game, coming through with 22 FP in 27 minutes. He makes sense as a deep bargain through all formats.

Joe Ingles (SG - UTA) will continue to see an expanded role if Mike Conley is still sidelined. He has made the most of that opportunity with 30+ FP in back-to-back games. I’ll continue to roster him as a solid bargain if he stays in that role tonight.

Marcus Morris (PF - LAC) is another frontcourt cheapie to consider. Serge Ibaka is still out for the Clippers, so Morris should get his opportunities. He hasn’t always cashed on that in the postseason, running from 12-38 fantasy points over the past six. Needless to say, he’s a risk/reward tournament option who you hope can find the hot hand.
