NBA DFS Top Plays for Monday 3/27/23
One player who should be on everyone’s radar for NBA DFS on Monday is Kyrie Irving, the point guard for the Dallas Mavericks. With Luka Doncic facing a one-game suspension, Irving is poised to take on a more significant role on the court, and he’s proven he’s more than capable of delivering in clutch situations. Despite a rocky start to his tenure with the Mavericks, Irving has been a consistent performer, averaging just shy of 50 fantasy points per game.
Irving’s usage rate should skyrocket in Doncic’s absence, and he’ll be the primary ball-handler for the Mavericks, making him a valuable asset in DFS contests. He’s averaging an impressive 1.5 DraftKings points per minute, and he’ll face a Pacers defense that ranks 26th in the league. That’s good news for Irving, who should have plenty of opportunities to rack up points.
At a price that’s under $10K on both DraftKings and FanDuel, Irving is an excellent option for all formats on Monday. And with his talent and the Mavericks’ need for a victory, Irving could be poised for a big night on the court.
Tyrese Maxey is a player to watch in NBA DFS on Monday, with the Philadelphia 76ers taking on the Denver Nuggets in what’s shaping up to be a close, high-scoring game. Maxey has been in excellent form recently, averaging 26.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game for just over 43 fantasy points per game. He’s proven himself to be a versatile and talented player, with the ability to contribute across multiple categories.
Despite being priced at $7,700 on both DraftKings and FanDuel, Maxey is a solid play in all formats, especially if James Harden remains out due to his Achilles injury.
The Nuggets may rank 14th overall in defensive efficiency, but they’ve struggled against guards, giving up the fourth-most fantasy points to the position. This bodes well for Maxey, who should have plenty of opportunities to score and rack up fantasy points. If Harden sits out again, Maxey would likely see a boost in usage, making him an even more attractive DFS option.
Sabonis has been on a tear for the past three months, averaging nearly a triple-double in that span and scoring at least 41 DraftKings points in all but three games. He’s been particularly dominant in his last 14 outings, scoring at least 51 DK points in 11 of those games.
Sabonis is a versatile player who can contribute across multiple categories, and he could be asked to do even more if De’Aaron Fox sits out again. Facing the Minnesota Timberwolves is also a plus, as they rank fourth in pace and 20th in total defense.
At $10,300 on DraftKings and $10,400 on FanDuel, Sabonis is a plug-and-play option in many DFS lineups. He’s been averaging over 53 fantasy points per game since the All-Star break, and he has a high floor due to his consistent performance. While the return of Karl-Anthony Towns may lower Sabonis’ upside somewhat, the Timberwolves still rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to centers this season. With his recent form and favorable matchup against the Timberwolves, Sabonis is a player to consider in all formats.
Another big man to keep an eye on in NBA DFS on Monday is Julius Randle of the New York Knicks. Randle has been a primary playmaker for the Knicks this season, averaging nearly 50 DraftKings points per game over the past few months. He’s established a solid 40-point floor due to his consistent role on the team, seeing 20 shots and 40 minutes per game.
Randle faces a favorable matchup against the Houston Rockets, who rank 28th in points allowed and 29th in defensive efficiency. If Randle continues to see his usual role, he should have a great chance to rack up points and help the Knicks secure a victory.
The Knicks may be without Jalen Brunson due to a hand injury, but they should still be able to dominate a struggling Rockets team. If Brunson sits out, Randle could step up and lead the team to victory. Even if Brunson plays, Randle has the potential to dominate against a Rockets team that has the second-worst defensive rating in the league.
At $9,300 on DraftKings and $10,200 on FanDuel, Randle is a solid option for Monday’s slate of games. He’s proven himself to be a consistent performer and a reliable source of fantasy points. With the Rockets struggling defensively, Randle is a player to consider in all formats.
