Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes
Ja Morant put up 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting in Sunday's 127-102 victory over the Kings. Morant also had seven rebounds, nine assists and four turnovers in 30 minutes. He has looked 'okay' over his past three games as he returns from injury but will look to bounce back Monday in Phoenix. Morant is a top-40 fantasy player this year so we have no doubt he will put up monster numbers as soon as he knocks the rust off.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Jae Crowder (health and safety protocols) will not be available for Monday's game against the Grizzlies. Crowder and Elfrid Payton have entered the league's health and safety protocols, with the former's absence being much more impactful. With Crowder ruled out the Suns have a void to fill in the starting lineup, with Cameron Johnson likely to receive the nod. Johnson has scored in double figures in 12 straight, and 14 of his last 15 games. Rostered in 45% of Yahoo leagues, he's a must-add with Crowder sidelined.
