Monday's NBA DFS Picks
The NBA Daily Fantasy schedule for Monday features a total of nine games. Here’s our DFS picks for tonight’s action.
*Be sure to check your lineup before the start of the 7PM ET games. There have been some guys pulled due to rest lately that we can’t plan for.
Point Guard – Blazers’ Damian Lillard (at Denver, 9PM ET) $9,000
Lillard has scored over 40 fantasy points in seven straight games and the Blazers need a win tonight against Denver so they can secure the third seed in the West. Denver also needs a win, so I expect this game to be at a playoff level. Lillard should be ready to step up tonight and put up another big fantasy night.
Shooting Guard – Grizzlies’ MarShon Brooks (at Minnesota, 8PM ET) $6,200
The late-season darling of fantasy, MarShon Brooks, should be a good play again tonight. He has scored 38 fantasy points or more in his last three and continues to get a lot of opportunities for Memphis as the season ends. Having not played all season, Brooks has a full tank of gas and ready to prove himself for next season.
Small Forward – Pistons’ Luke Kennard (vs. Toronto, 7PM ET) $4,000
The rookie has had a lackluster season but he is getting injected into the starting lineup over the final week of the season. He played 32 points at Memphis last night and put up 33.75 fantasy points. With his increased minutes and very cheap price, Kennard is a great option to play tonight.
Power Forward – Pelicans’ Anthony Davis (at L.A. Clippers) $11,600
Davis will be needed to come through big time again today as they are tied with the Spurs and Thunder for the 5-7 spots in the West and just 1 game up from being out of the playoffs. Davis has back-to-back fantasy games over 63 points and I would expect more of the same against the Clippers. He is averaging 30.3 points and 13.3 rebounds against Los Angeles this season.
Center – Bulls’ Cristiano Felicio (at Brooklyn, 7:30PM ET) $4,500
In order to get two big names, you have to take some risks elsewhere. Felicio had 29.75 fantasy points for the Bulls against the Nets on Saturday and the two meet up tonight in Brooklyn. I think he has the potential for another double-double with extended minutes once again.
