Sunday is loaded with games from afternoon until evening in the NBA, which means you can enjoy DFS all day. We’ve dug into the loaded slate of evening games to put together an NBA DFS lineup that’s sure to get you in the green. Come check it out.
NBA DFS Lineup for Sunday – 2/26
PG – Damian Lillard – POR – $11,400
Lillard takes to the court for the first time since the All-Star break. He hasn’t been hurt, but travel-related issues kept him out of Thursday’s game. Lillard is not the typical ‘load management’ sit, so the time off should do him some good. It should also do him some good that the Rockets are the worst in the league against point guards in terms of fantasy points. They also rank 25th in total points allowed.
SG – Paul George – LAC – $8,300
Some people worried that the addition of Russell Westbrook would harm the numbers of Paul George. Although it’s hard to be conclusive by looking at double overtime stats, George and the Clippers put up insane numbers even in regulation. It appears that Westbrook dishing the ball will be good for George’s production and with a salary that was already attainable with his numbers pre-Russ, he seems like a good play for this NBA DFS lineup.
SF – Kyle Anderson – MIN – $5,400
Kyle Anderson is the type of player who, when he can give you double-digit points, is always worth his daily fantasy salary. That’s because he spreads out the stat sheet on the night and is always good for 10+ rebounds/assists. I like him (and any Minnesota big man) here because the Warriors have been giving up tons of points (27th in the league) and plenty of rebounds (25th in the league). They’ve also been even worse on the boards as of late.
PF – Jabari Smith Jr. – HOU – $5,800
In 2022-23, Portland is fifth in the league in limiting their opponent’s rebounds. So it might seem like a wild move to go after a guy who derives a lot of his value on the boards. However, it’s worth noting that the Blazers have been a lot worse as of late. Over the last three games, they rank 24th in allowing rebounds. With Smith Jr. pushing a double-double every night, it might be a sneaky spot for him.
C – Rudy Gobert – MIN – $7,700
Well, I already mentioned the reason I like rebounding options for the Timberwolves, but even above those reasons, Gobert is a steal. He’s averaging 42.3 fantasy points a game over his last three while beating his season average in points in each one. I expect another massive night here.
G – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – DEC – $4,500
Caldwell-Pope made the most of his time with Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon out. He was putting up ridiculous numbers and was essentially a must-roster option every night. With them back now, some are shying away from KCP. However, I don’t think that’s necessary. Last game he still logged 27 minutes. His production was a little lower, but I’m counting on a bounce back with the necessary burn tonight.
F – Kenrich Williams – OKC – $3,800
Williams has lowkey been solid for the Thunder. He’s putting up nearly 24.0 fantasy points per game over his last two games and has been sporadically scoring in the 20s all season. If you’re looking for a bargain bin option for tonight’s slate, you could do worse than a guy who gives you those numbers and plays nearly 30 minutes.
UTIL – Lamar Stevens – CLE – $3,100
Speaking of volume-based plays, Lamar Stevens is playing 20 minutes a game over his last two. Some of that is due to the fact that he’s playing solid defense and spreading out the stat line. He’s not going to blow the doors off tonight, but he’ll get enough burn to be able to make this salary an easy one to stomach.
