Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Luka Doncic led the Mavs with 23 points (8-for-19 FGs), 12 rebounds, nine assists, one block and one triple in a 124-118 win over Charlotte on Sunday.This was only the second time this season that Luka failed to score at least 30 points. He has had an unbelievable start to the season, which is why Dallas is 5-1. He nearly recorded his third triple-double of the season in this game, but he fell one assist short.
Doncic was consistently drafted with one of the first few picks this season, and so far, he’s been the best player in fantasy basketball when punting assists and turnovers, which is a common strategy. In points leagues, he’s been as dominant as ever and has shown no signs of slowing down.
Orlando Magic DFS Spin
Markelle Fultz (left knee swelling) is questionable for Monday’s game against the Mavericks. Fultz has missed Orlando’s last two games, most recently being listed as questionable ahead of their win over the Lakers on Saturday before being ruled out. Should he have to miss a third straight game, rookie Anthony Black would remain in the starting lineup. The point total won’t be too high, but Black will be worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as a streamer.
