As the NFL regular season slowly (and painfully) draws to a close we are reminded that we still have the NBA to get us through those times of daily fantasy fixes. There are only six games on the slate tonight but I believe that I’ve got the best value plays out of the 12 teams going tonight. Let’s get to them and lets win some loot because before you know it those Christmas bills will be rolling in.
Raymond Felton PG New York Knicks (Draft on FanDuel Today & Play For HUGE Cash!) – Felton saw somewhat of a dip in his fantasy production a few games back but have righted the ship since. Actually, it looks as if Felton could bee beginning to warm up again. I believe he is. After the Denver and Brooklyn games, Felton has come back and registered 31 fantasy points against the Lakers and a meaty 40 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers two nights later. Start Felton tonight as he’ll pick up the slack with the possibility of Melo being a no-go.
Projection: 22 pts / 8 ast / 5 reb / 1 blk / 1 stl
Another PG Option For Monday:
Mike Conley PG Memphis Grizzlies: Projection – 14 pts / 7 ast / 4 reb / 1 blk / 2 stl
Marco Belinelli SG Chicago Bulls (Draft on FanDuel Today & Play For HUGE Cash!) – Marco has been as steady as a rock. At the very moment that he was inserted into the starting line-up he has done nothing but produce. Belinellis log in time per start is a testament to the coaching staff having faith in the guy. Belinelli has logged in close to 40 minutes per game since he has become a starter. Marco is still at a price range that won’t break your bank. Start him and don’t think twice even though he’ll be facing the high-flying Grizzlies. This kid doesn’t get intimidated.
Projection: 20 pts / 5 ast / 6 reb / 2 stl
Another SG Option For Monday:
Arron Afflalo SG Orlando Magic: Projection – 21 pts / 4 ast / 6 reb / 1 stl
Rudy Gay SF Memphis Grizzlies (Draft on FanDuel Today & Play For HUGE Cash!) – I’ve got bad news and I’ve got good news. You want the bad news first do ya? Okay, here it is. The bad news is that Gay is coming off of a lackluster game to say the least versus the Jazz in which he scored 14 points, 1 assist, 1 rebound and 2 steals. Not much to write home about huh? Well, now the good news. For those of us who play most of the time know that it is a must to start Gay after any lull in performance, it’s just how he rolls. I am expecting a massive bounce-back game here tonight against the Chicago Jordans from Rudy and he’ll get it too.
Projection: 21 pts / 4 ast / 10 reb / 2 stl
Another SF Option For Monday:
Chandler Parsons SF Houston Rockets: Projection – 18 pts / 4 ast / 9 reb / 2 stl
Jason Thompson PF Sacramento Kings (Draft on FanDuel Today & Play For HUGE Cash!) – I’m looking forward to this match-up in a huge way, JT is as well. Thompson usually flies a bit under the radar at times due to the big names and big salaries although I see him at a must-start here. Thompsons price is too hard to ignore to due to the fact of his fantasy point production on any given night. Jason can put up a double-double at anytime, more so than not and is steady with his playing time on the floor. Thompson will roll with another double-double in this meeting with Phoenix. I also expect this meeting to be a high-scoring affair in which Thompson will prosper.
Projection: 13 pts / 3 ast / 12 reb / 1 blk / 2 stl
Another PF Option For Monday:
Serge Ibaka PF Oklahoma City Thunder: Projection – 16 pts / 1 ast / 10 reb / 3 stl
Nikola Pekovic C Minnesota Timberwolves (Draft on FanDuel Today & Play For HUGE Cash!) – I present to you the best value at the center position tonight. Pekovic is another one of those players who get looked over due to the fact of the big name / salary status. Good, that’s just what we want. We want our opposition to grab someone who is more costly yet brings less points to the final tally. Look towards starting Nikola tonight. In his last 3 games he has registered 32, 37 & 37 points while logging in an average of 37 minutes in those outings. Listen, his price is low and the value that you’re getting with Pekovic is well worth it, trust me on this one.
Projection: 23 pts / 2 ast / 11 reb / 1 blk / 1 stl
Another Center Option For Monday:
Tyson Chandler C New York Knicks: Projection – 19 pts / 2 ast / 12 reb / 2 stl
