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 seven-game main slate starting at 7:00 ET.
Chris Paul - Phoenix (vs. LA Clippers) - DK: $8,800 / FD: $9,600 / Yahoo: $40
Paul is a magician. His assist numbers have been crazy as of late, propelling him to a smooth 48 FPPG average over his last nine games. Now he’ll take on his former, former team in the LA Clippers - who happen to rank 28th in defensive efficiency to point guards. This is a great matchup for CP3 to keep doing his thing.

Terry Rozier - Charlotte (at Minnesota) - DK: $7,900 / FD: $7,500 / Yahoo: $33
Rozier has fallen into an insane string of production with 62+ fantasy points in his last two games. He probably won’t reach that mark for a third-straight game, but it’s nice to have that level of upside. Tonight’s matchup looks great at Minnesota, given the Wolves have struggled defensively over the past two weeks. This matchup also pits two of the faster-paced teams against each other, so there should be plenty of opportunities on both sides.
Oshae Brissett - Indiana (at Milwaukee) - DK: $5,400 / FD: $6,800 / Yahoo: $16
Indiana is extremely shorthanded at the moment with Myles Turner, Isaiah Jackson, and others out. Remember, Domantas Sabonis has been traded away too. That leaves Brissett to pick up the slack for Indiana’s frontcourt. He has filled that role admirably with 41 and 45 fantasy points respectively in his last two games. There’s a good chance he keeps the momentum tonight at Milwaukee.
Robert Williams - Boston (at Philadelphia) - DK: $7,400 / FD: $7,900 / Yahoo: $28
Williams is an absolute beast, and his game log reflects that. The Boston big man has come through with 39+ fantasy points in three of his last five games, and that includes a fantastic 52 FP outing against the Nuggets. Tonight’s matchup at Philadelphia looks tough on paper, but Williams should be up to the task. To be honest, the power forward spot has low opportunity cost tonight, so taking Williams’ upside becomes even more appealing.
Also Consider: Brandon Clarke, Justin Nwora (if Giannis out)
Steven Adams - Memphis (at New Orleans) - DK: $5,800 / FD: $6,900 / Yahoo: $21
Adams is another surprise player who has been crushing it in recent games. The Memphis big man has flexed 42+ fantasy points in two straight games, and his salary hasn’t caught up to the recent surge. Tonight’s matchup at New Orleans is a nice landing spot to keep the momentum, as the Pelicans rank 21st in defensive efficiency to centers.
Terance Mann (SG - LAC) is coming off two fantastic efforts with 36 and 46 fantasy points respectively. He’ll need to keep playing heavy minutes with Eric Bledsoe gone and Norman Powell not playing. The matchup against Phoenix is tough, but Mann should see enough minutes to keep meeting value.
Nicolas Batum (PF - LAC) is another beneficiary of the Powell injury. He has seen 27+ minutes in two of his last three games, translating to 21 and 31 fantasy points in those outings. Sure, there are a few duds mixed in, but that has kept his salary insanely low.
Clint Capela (C - ATL) has been seeing low minutes, which led to a substantial price decrease over the past few weeks. He came through with 30 FP in 31 minutes last time out, which could be a good sign moving forward. If Capela sees 28+ minutes tonight vs. Cleveland, he should make a strong case as a buy-low candidate.
