Sacramento Kings DFS Spin

Keegan Murray bounced back on Monday with 30 points (11-for-17 FGs), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and eight 3-pointers in a 140-120 win over the Rockets. Murray hasn't played to his standard lately. Over his previous three games, he had scored seven total points and shot 2-for-21 from the field. He hit a career-high eight threes in this game, which was more points than he had scored over his previous three. Per Statmuse, he is the only rookie this season to hit eight threes in a game. His 30 points were also a career-high, as the rookie broke out of his slump in an explosive way. Hopefully this performance will kickstart his offense, and he'll continue this production against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Houston Rockets DFS Spin

KJ Martin shined on Monday with 18 points (8-for-10 FGs), eight rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in a loss to Sacramento. Martin's production tends to be sporadic, but when he's contributing, he can be very effective for fantasy managers. Over the past two weeks, he has provided top-100 value in 9-cat leagues. He has played a larger role lately with Houston dealing with injuries to key pieces like Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green, though Martin proved he can still be effective with Green back in the lineup. Martin is rostered in 39% of leagues, and he's worth rostering with how well he has played as of late.
