The Best Bang For Your Buck in NBA DFS- 12:19:21

Point Guards:

1) D’Angelo Russell $7,400 vs. Dallas (7th)
2) Tyrese Haliburton $6,900 vs. San Antonio (26th)
3) Terry Rozier $6,600 at Phoenix (20th)
4) Derrick White $6,700 at Sacramento (12th)
5) Lonzo Ball $7,600 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (30th)
6) Chris Paul $9,300 vs. Charlotte (21st)
7) Kyle Lowry $8,300 at Detroit (5th)
8) Damian Lillard $9,700 at Memphis (10th)
9) Dejounte Murray $9,900 at Sacramento (12th)
10) Russell Westbrook $10,400 at Chicago (14th)

The Assist: D’Angelo Russell is the top bargain play at the point guard position. Tyrese Haliburton should have an offensive role with De’Aaron Fox sitting this game out. Terry Rozier can save you a good amount of money to deploy at other positions.

Shooting Guards:

1) Darius Garland $7,800 at Atlanta (13th)
2) Patty Mills $7,700 vs. Denver (25th)
3) Tyler Herro $7,000 at Detroit (5th)
4) LaMelo Ball $9,500 at Phoenix (8th)
5) Devin Booker $8,800 vs. Charlotte (30th)
6) Cade Cunningham $8,400 vs. Miami (1st)
7) Jalen Brunson $7,100 at Minnesota (15th)
8) Seth Curry $6,400 vs. New Orleans (9th)
9) Desmond Bane $6,100 vs. Portland (3rd)
10) Monte Morris $5,500 at Brooklyn (20th)

The Assist: Darius Garland is a savvy play at a shooting guard position that is missing top-tier talent. Patty Mills should have ample opportunities with a depleted Brooklyn team. Tyler Herro is a sparkplug at shooting guard that can give your DPS squad a jolt.

Small Forwards:

1) LeBron James $10,800 at Chicago (17th)
2) Jimmy Butler $9,200 at Detroit (28th)
3) Brandon Ingram $8,900 at Philadelphia (27th)
4) Will Barton $6,200 at Brooklyn (16th)
5) Norman Powell $6,500 at Memphis (16th)
6) Kelly Oubre Jr. $6,400 at Phoenix (5th)
7) Saddiq Bey $6,200 vs. Miami (8th)
8) Josh Hart $6,000 at Philadelphia (27th)
9) Buddy Hield $5,900 vs. San Antonio (7th)
10) Tim Hardaway Jr. $5,900 at Minnesota (17th)

The Assist: The small forward position feels depleted on this slate. I like Lebron James as he will have to take an even more aggressive approach with Anthony Davis injured. Keep an eye on Jimmy Butler’s status. Butler draws a great match-up with the Pistons if he can go. Brandon Ingram draws a great match-up as well. The Sixers have struggled to defend wing players.

Power Forwards:

1) Kristaps Porzingis $8,800 at Minnesota (23rd)
2) DeMar DeRozan $9,400 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (18th)
3) Miles Bridges $7,600 at Phoenix (5th)
4) Gordon Hayward $6,700 at Phoenix (5th)
5) Tobias Harris $8,700 vs. New Orleans (1st)
6) Keldon Johnson $5,400 at Sacramento (7th)
7) Harrison Barnes $6,300 vs. San Antonio (10th)
8) Aaron Gordon $5,900 at Brooklyn (11th)
9) Kevin Love $5,000 at Atlanta (9th)
10) P.J. Tucker $4,800 at Detroit (24th)

The Assist: Kristaps Porzingis is carrying a ton of momentum into this match-up against the Timberwolves. DeMar DeRozan should have his way against a Lakers front-court minus Anthony Davis. Miles Bridges has taken over the leadership role in Charlotte.


1) Nikola Jokic $12,000 at Brooklyn (9th)
2) Karl-Anthony Towns $9,600 vs. Dallas (24th)
3) Deandre Ayton $8,200 vs. Charlotte (26th)
4) Jonas Valanciunas $8,000 at Philadelphia (17th)
5) Nikola Vucevic $9,200 vs. Los Angeles Lakers (21st)

The Assist: Nikola Jokic is the slate wrecker. Pay up for Jokic if you can figure the financials. Karl-Anthony Towns will dominate the Dallas Mavericks all game long. Deandre Ayton has picked up his play lately. Charlotte struggles with physical players in the interior.
