Monday's NBA DFS Predictions
The NBA Schedule for Monday, March 19 has eight games set to take place. Here’s our NBA Daily Fantasy suggestions based on tonight’s slate of games.
Point Guard – Warriors’ Quinn Cook (at San Antonio, 9:30PM ET) $4,500
Cook seems to be the top scoring option for the Warriors right now given all their injuries. With Thompson, Curry and Durant out, Cook has put up 53 points over his last two games while playing 40 minutes in both. While the Spurs are a tough matchup, this price tag is still very cheap for a guy who has put up at least 42 fantasy points in his last two outings.
Shooting Guard – Bucks’ Khris Middleton (at Cleveland, 7PM ET) $7,500
Middleton has been on a nice run, putting up at least 33 fantasy points in five straight, with two over 40. He has become the top scoring option for the Bucks right now and logging big minutes. Tonight he faces a Cleveland team that is struggling on defense and he has good numbers against. In three meetings this year he is putting up 15.3 points, 8.7 assists and 4 rebounds per game. Expect the 15.3 points to increase while the side stats remain strong.
Small Forward – Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma (at Indiana, 7PM ET) $6,000
Kuzma has been a productive fantasy option for the Lakers. He is listed as questionable tonight due to an ankle injury, but reports are saying he is expected to play. Kuzma has put up at least 30 fantasy points in five of his last eight with a low of 26.5. For a relatively cheap price, Kuzma has good value tonight even against a formidable defense.
Power Forward – Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge (vs. Golden State, 9:30PM ET) $8,400
With the Warriors so depleted, Aldridge should have a big game. He won’t have to deal with Durant’s length and Green is having to devote more to offense right now, so this should open the door for him to have a big game. He is coming off a 39-point performance against the Timberwolves and I could see something similar tonight against a Golden State team without much defense to offer.
Center – Pistons’ Blake Griffin (at Sacramento, 10PM ET) $8,600
Griffin has been pretty solid with the Pistons since joining the team in terms of fantasy production. He had a quiet 32.5 points at Portland on Saturday, but has been over 40 fantasy points in six of his last eight games. Against an average Kings’ defense, I would expect Griffin to have a big day and provide a nice fantasy boost to your lineup.
