Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin
Rudy Gobert (left ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Knicks on Monday. Gobert is consistently listed as questionable, but he hasn't missed a game in nearly a month. If that changes, Naz Reid, who is questionable with a calf strain) should slide into the starting unit and be a top tier streaming option.
New York Knicks DFS Spin
RJ Barrett finished Saturday's 116-110 win over the Nuggets with 21 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), four rebounds, and two assists in 34 minutes. Barrett didn't make any of his three 3-point attempts, but that's the only negative from his offensive performance in Saturday's victory. He shot 80% inside the arc and didn't commit a turnover, the first time he's thrown up a blank in that category since a February 15 win over the Hawks. All three of the Knicks' top scores tallied at least 20 points on the day, with Jalen Brunson finishing with 24 and Julius Randle 20, to go along with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer. His fantasy value remains incredibly low for a prominent starter, but Barrett can be an asset to the Knicks when he's as efficient as he was against Denver.
