Playing NBA DFS and selecting power forwards will differ across sites. The players we listed in our small forward writeup are all top options on a site like Draft Kings. On a site like Fan Duel, guys like Tatum could end up at the PF position.
On DraftKings, many Centers also have PF eligibility, making them top options at the position. No matter who you select, you want power forwards who not only score and rebound but can also fill up stats like assist, blocks, or drain some three-pointers. But the top PF in the game is also one of the top players in the league. Here are a couple of full options at the power forward position for NBA daily fantasy sports:
This guy has the nickname of Greek Freak for a reason. His NBA DFS stats are excellent. Last year he averaged 28.1 points, 11 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.1 threes, 1.2 steals, 1.2 blocks with 56.9% from the floor. With numbers like that, he truly is the MVP for the Milwaukee Bucks and the NBA. He led the Bucks to the championship last year. He’s often the highest NBA DFS Salary on any given night, but he’s well worth it. He racks up DFS points in so many categories. For daily fantasy basketball, he’ll undoubtedly be played often for you. It is lineup construction and his high salary that keep him off lineups. If there were no salaries, this guy would be an auto pick for so many lines. You can’t go wrong with him in a lineup.
This guy can also be a stat sheet monster if he can stay on the court. He is very inconsistent regarding whether he will play the whole game, be a late scratch, break a nail. He missed half the regular NBA season last year. He averaged 21.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.6 blocks a game.
His points could have been better if he stayed healthy all year and not played alongside Lebron.
With Westbrook coming to the Lakers this year, his numbers could take a hit in many games. But then there will be games where he’ll fill up the stat sheet.
On a team with other superstars, his NBA DFS numbers could go either way. AD may not get played as often when the PF position depends on what side you’re playing, as many Centers are eligible at PF. If this guy stays healthy and his numbers don’t take a big hit while Westbrook and James are on the floor with him, AD is undoubtedly a good play if you can fit him in the lineups.
Here is another guy when healthy fills up the NBA DFS stat sheets. He averaged 27 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 0.9 steals per game. He is very young and hasn’t even come close to his potential yet. Even at the PF position, he’s beginning to be their playmaker handing out the ball and collecting the assists. He is undoubtedly the leader of the New Orleans Pelicans.
