Monday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Schedule for Monday, March 26 features five games. Here are some suggested NBA Daily Fantasy plays for today’s action.
Point Guard – Knicks’ Trey Burke (at Charlotte, 7PM ET) $4,800
Burke is on a hot streak right now, having posted 93.25 fantasy points over his last three games. Burke should be able to continue his hot streak tonight with extended minutes against the Hornets. The Michigan alum is getting more offensive opportunities, taking at least 11 shots in his last three, and he still adds up other stats you would expect with a point guard. He should definitely out-perform his price tag tonight.
Shooting Guard – Suns’ Josh Jackson (vs. Boston, 10PM ET) $6,700
Jackson is getting his chance to shine to close out his rookie year. The Suns are leaning on him while T.J. Warren and Devin Booker are out with injuries. He has posted over 30 fantasy points in four straight and has gone over 50 twice in six games. Jackson should continue to be the focus of the Phoenix offense tonight against the Celtics. He has the potential for 40+ points for a price under $7,000.
Small Forward – Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma (at Detroit, 7PM ET) $6,900
I continue to like Kuzma as an option with Brandon Ingram expect out. The rookie for the Lakers has been very steady in Ingram’s absence. Kuzma has scored at least 34 fantasy points in three straight and has at least 48 in two of his last five. Kuzma is a top option in the L.A. offense and facing a Detroit team that has struggled with wings.
Power Forward – Celtics’ Greg Monroe (at Phoenix, 10PM ET) $5,500
Monroe is coming off a quiet game against the Kings last night, but he should be plenty motivated to produce against the Suns, who cast him aside earlier this season. Prior to last night, Monroe had scored 32 fantasy points in two straight games. He has been productive in his limited minutes and I expect more of the same tonight with an affordable price.
Center – Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic (at Philadelphia, 7PM ET) $8,600
There are a lot of nice center options tonight, but Jokic has a lot of upside with the best price tag. He has posted at least 45 fantasy points in four of his last five games and tonight he gets to face Joel Embiid. Embiid is a force on offense, but can get lax on defense. He posted 19 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 blocks against the 76ers in their first meeting this season.
