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 eight-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Malcolm Brogdon - Indiana (at Denver) - DK: $7,400 / FD: $6,700 / Yahoo: $28
There are some big-name point guards on this slate (Doncic, Westbrook, Curry, Irving), but I believe Brogdon holds better value than that group. The Indiana point guard’s salary rests around the mid-range, and he has looked good with 37+ fantasy points in three of his last four. Brogdon is certainly capable of returning 40-45 FP, especially considering a nice matchup at Denver - who ranks 24th in defensive efficiency to point guards.
Also Consider: De’Aaron Fox, Delon Wright

Immanuel Quickley - New York (at Brooklyn) - DK: $5,600 / FD: $4,600 / Yahoo: $13
Derrick Rose and Austin Rivers are out while Elfrid Payton is doubtful. That moves Immanuel Quickley into a prominent role for the Knicks. That was the case on Saturday, and the rookie came through with 36 fantasy points in 33 minutes. Quickley makes for an easy pick for his salary on FanDuel and Yahoo while flirting with full starter minutes.
Khris Middleton - Milwaukee (at Washington) - DK: $8,100 / FD: $7,400 / Yahoo: $32
This Milwaukee-Washington game should have plenty of points. Vegas has it listed at a whopping 242.5 over/under, and the Bucks came through with a 125-119 victory against the Wizards a few nights ago. Middleton posted 41 fantasy points in that game, marking the second time in three outings he has topped the 40 FP plateau. Similar to the write-up of Brogdon earlier, Middleton could produce similar fantasy output compared to the higher-end picks of his position (LBJ, Kawhi) for a fraction of the cost.
Domantas Sabonis - Indiana (at Denver) - DK: $9,600 / FD: $9,100 / Yahoo: $46
If you have enough salary to make Giannis Antetokounmpo work, then go for it. However, Sabonis is a nice consolation prize if you are looking to save about 18-20%. Sabonis put up a triple-double (46 FP) against the Nuggets right before the All-Star break, and he has exceeded that total in three straight games. Denver ranks 29th in defensive efficiency to opposing power forwards, so this is a great spot to keep the Indiana All-Star going.
Also Consider: PJ Washington, Markieff Morris
Montrezl Harrell - LA Lakers (at Golden State) - DK: $6,200 / FD: $5,900 / Yahoo: $20
If more value opens up on this slate, then upgrading to Nikola Jokic would be more plausible. However, as things stand, Montrezl Harrell makes for a fine mid-range accent to a decent cash game lineup. He has been on fire with 38+ fantasy points in two straight. The last time these two teams met, Harrell only had 16 FP in 11 minutes, but his playing time was curbed due to a blowout. Harrell could thrive in a more competitive battle tonight, as Golden State ranks 24th in defensive efficiency to centers.
Delon Wright (PG - DET) is an interesting value pick. He was back up above 30 minutes last game, and I’m guessing he stays there after ramping up from his three-week layoff. Wright has a decent matchup against San Antonio tonight, who ranks 25th in defensive efficiency to shooting guards.
Caris LeVert (SG - IND) returned to the floor, posting 20 fantasy points in 26 minutes on Saturday. That was the trial run, so there’s a good chance LeVert’s minutes will go up from here. He’s vastly underpriced on FanDuel, so give him a strong look as an SG2 over there.
PJ Washington (PF - CHA) has been all over the place recently. This is a high-scoring matchup with Sacramento (239.5 over/under), so we could see his good side. The last time he faced the Kings, Washington posted 66 fantasy points. Gordon Hayward was out that game, so we won’t expect a full takeover this time around. Still, he’s a strong bet to put forth respectable value.
Alex Len (C - WAS) started Saturday’s game against Milwaukee, putting up 23 fantasy points in 32 minutes. If he sees that level of playing time, we can take a chance on him in DFS for the near-minimum salary. Moritz Wagner was benched and didn’t play in that game, allowing Len to see that much floor time. If Len is starting again tonight, he should be on your DFS shortlist.
