The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS - 10:29:01

Point Guards:

  1. Collin Sexton $6,500 at Los Angeles Lakers (26th)
  2. Tyler Herro $6,600 vs. Charlotte (14th)
  3. Nickeil Alexander-Walker $6,700 vs. Sacramento (28th)
  4. James Harden $9,600 vs. Indiana (26th)
  5. Luka Doncic $11,000 at Denver (17th)
  6. Damian Lillard $9,300 vs. Los Angeles Clippers (26th)
  7. De’Aaron Fox $8,400 at New Orleans (18th)
  8. Russell Westbrook $9,700 vs. Cleveland (20th)
  9. LaMelo Ball $8,300 at Miami (12th)
  10. Fred VanVleet $8,100 vs. Orlando (9th)

The Assist: Collin Sexton caught fire Wednesday night for 26 points. Stick with Sexton as he has this type of scoring upside at a bargain price tag. The masses may fade Tyler Herro due to Kyle Lowry being re-inserted into the starting lineup. Fade the noise as Herro can still get hot as the 6th man. Nickeil Alexander-Walker remains a work in progress. Alexander-Walker can help your fantasy team in several ways. 14 rebounds in his last outing is just one example.

Shooting Guards:

  1. Will Barton $5,900 vs. Dallas (23rd)
  2. Buddy Hield $6,200 at New Orleans (8th)
  3. Kelly Oubre Jr. $5,900 at Miami (12th)
  4. CJ McCollum $7,900 vs. Los Angeles Clippers (11th)
  5. Tim Hardaway Jr. $6,800 at Denver (4th)
  6. Chris Duarte $5,500 at Brooklyn (1st)
  7. Tyrese Haliburton $6,100 at New Orleans (18th)
  8. Terry Rozier $6,300 at Miami (14th)
  9. Jalen Suggs $5,100 at Toronto (7th)
  10. Eric Bledsoe $5,700 at Portland (24th)

The Assist: Will Barton continues to establish himself as a go-to player for the Nuggets. Barton has been consistent all season long. Buddy Hield is a nightly threat to shoot lights out from the outside. Hield knocked down seven 3-pointers in his previous outing. Kelly Oubre Jr. is beginning to shine for Charlotte. As Oubre becomes a more all-around player he will benefit your DFS lineups.

Small Forwards:

  1. Jimmy Butler $8,700 vs. Charlotte (29th)
  2. Gordon Heyward $6,900 at Miami (12th)
  3. LeBron James $9,900 vs. Cleveland (23rd)
  4. Brandon Ingram $8,700 vs. Sacramento (10th)
  5. Harrison Barnes $7,400 at New Orleans (4th)
  6. Paul George $10,000 at Portland (16th)
  7. Miles Bridges $7,300 at Miami (12th)
  8. Michael Porter Jr. $6,500 vs. Dallas (6th)
  9. Franz Wagner $4,900 at Toronto (24th)
  10. Gary Trent Jr. $5,000 vs. Orlando (19th)

The Assist: Jimmy Butler is a sound buy at $8,700, plus he draws Charlotte who is of the worst in the league in guarding the wings. Gordon Heyward is averaging close to 20 points per game. Heyward has become a force for Charlotte and remains a bargain of $6,900. Lebron James has been injured early in the season but could be back on the court Friday night. Keep an eye on James’ status leading up to tip time.

Power Forwards:

  1. Domantas Sabonis $9,400 at Brooklyn (18th)
  2. Evan Mobley $6,800 at Los Angeles Lakers (27th)
  3. OG Anunoby $6,800 vs. Orlando (14th)
  4. Scottie Barnes $6,100 vs. Orlando (2nd)
  5. Kevin Love $5,100 at Los Angeles (22nd)
  6. Wendell Carter Jr. $5,900 at Toronto (9th)
  7. Lauri Markkanen $5,300 at Los Angeles Lakers (22nd)
  8. PJ Washington $5,800 at Miami (12th)
  9. Aaron Gordon $5,000 vs. Dallas (23rd)
  10. Marvin Bagley III $5,200 at New Orleans (3rd)

The Assist: Domantas Sabonis can help your fantasy team across the board. Sabonis is approaching the fantasy elite. Evan Mobley is a walking double-double. Continue to start Mobley at a modest $6800 price tag.


  1. Anthony Davis $9,500 vs. Cleveland (1st)
  2. Bam Adebayo $7,800 vs. Charlotte (19th)
  3. Jonas Valanciunas $8,500 vs. Sacramento (28th)
  4. Jusuf Nurkic $7,000 vs. Los Angeles Clippers (14th)
  5. Mo Bamba $6,600 at Toronto (9th)

The Assist: Anthony Davis is the top play at the center position with Nikola Jokic likely out. I am going to stick with Bam Adebayo as one of our top frontcourt plays. Adebayo has yet to disappoint. If you want to get a little crazy, Mo Bamba is in play as he has recorded a double-double in three of his last four games.
