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 main slate starting at 7:30 ET.

POINT GUARD

Mike Conley - Utah (vs. Atlanta) - DK: $6,600 / FD: $6,300 / Yahoo: $21

Conley sat out last game, but he should be ready to go tonight. The veteran guard has been heating up with 36+ fantasy points in three straight games, and tonight’s matchup provides an excellent opportunity to keep that going. His opponent, the Hawks, rank 29th in defensive efficiency to point guards this season. You could reasonably pair Conley with backcourt mate Donovan Mitchell in the same lineup through all DFS formats.

Also Consider: Reggie Jackson

SHOOTING GUARD

Tyrese Maxey - Philadelphia (vs. Milwaukee) - DK: $6,200 / FD: $6,600 / Yahoo: $19

The Sixers are still shorthanded with Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and others sidelined. That promotes Tyrese Maxey into heavy minutes with respectable usage. He used that to score 44 fantasy points in 39 minutes against the Knicks last night, and a similar line isn’t out of the question while taking on Milwaukee. Maxey is a nice mid-range pick through all DFS formats tonight.

Also Consider: Seth Curry, Donovan Mitchell

SMALL FORWARD

Furkan Korkmaz - Philadelphia (vs. Milwaukee) - DK: $4,900 / FD: $5,400 / Yahoo: $15

Korkmaz is a cheap filler who will pick up the slack for Philadelphia tonight. He has looked decent in a boosted role over the last two games, hitting 32 and 28 fantasy points with 32 and 39 minutes respectively. The fact that he’s seeing full starter minutes should easily push him to value against the Bucks tonight. Consider Korkmaz a strong bargain choice on all sites.

Also Consider: Paul George

POWER FORWARD

Giannis Antetokounmpo - Milwaukee (at Philadelphia) - DK: $11,400 / FD: $11,300 / Yahoo: $57

Who else? Antetokounmpo will continue to be a usage monster with Khris Middleton out and Jrue Holiday working his way back from injury. On top of that, the aforementioned Philadelphia injuries should give him better individual matchups to work with. Giannis has topped 60+ fantasy points in two of his last three games, and there’s a good chance he’ll make that happen in tonight’s competitive road battle against the Sixers.

Also Consider: Royce O’Neale, Robert Covington

CENTER

Andre Drummond - Philadelphia (vs. Milwaukee) - DK: $7,700 / FD: $7,200 / Yahoo: $30

Embiid is out, so Drummond will slide into the starting spot again tonight. He has done that twice this season, hitting 61 and 51 fantasy points respectively. The salary has surged dramatically, but I believe Drummond is still underpriced when considering his role/upside sans Embiid. Making matters even better, the Bucks are shorthanded up front (Brook Lopez is out) while ranking 22nd in rebound rate.

Also Consider: Ivica Zubac

POTENTIAL BARGAINS

Reggie Jackson (PG - LAC) has been seeing plenty of minutes for the Clippers. He’s an interesting mid-range bargain filler if you need someone in his salary level. I’m not over the moon when it comes to his upside, but he should post a serviceable fantasy score to keep your lineup on track.

Ivica Zubac (C - LAC) is an interesting tournament swerve away from Drummond. On DK and Yahoo, you can actually play Zubac in the utility slow alongside Philadelphia’s center. Zubac has achieved 33+ FP in two straight, and he’s still cheap.
