The Monday Morning Blues won’t slow us down as we look to another action packed week of Daily Fantasy Sports Action on FanDuel. That action will get started tonight with another solid seven game slate around the NBA to build our winning lineups around.
Tonight’s slate of games features a few of the NBA’s top stars as well as top fantasy producers. At the top of that list sits James Harden as he will look to lead his Houston Rockets past the Brooklyn Nets at home. Harden enters this game riding four straight games with at least 45 fantasy points including a 52.8 performance in the teams last contest.
Along with Harden we also have five other top tier NBA FanDuel options who are also averaging over 40 fantasy points a contests. We also have a few solid mid tier fantasy options that will help offset some of those high priced options including Will Barton and Greg Monroe.
Here is our top NBA FanDuel Options for Monday December 12th, 2016
Point Guards – Darren Collison & John Wall
We looked at a few combinations at the point guard position including going with two top tier options (Wall/Kyle Lowry, Damian Lillard/Chris Paul). In the end we liked Collison’s fantasy value against a Lakers team that has struggled this season. Meanwhile Wall has topped the 44 plus fantasy mark in five of the Wizards last six games.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Damian Lillard/Chris Paul
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Deron Williams
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Ramon Sessions (If Kemba Walker is out)
Shooting Guards – James Harden & Will Barton
The shooting guard position is one of those slots tonight where you can find a ton of Fantasy Value from the top options to some sleeper slots. For us we decided to go with the top option Harden as well a midtier option in Barton. For Harden he will get a shot at Nets team that is allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards. Meanwhile Bartonhas posted at least 22 fantasy points in six straight contest leading up to his matchup with the Dallas Mavericks tonight.

Small Forwards – Rudy Gay & Bojan Bogdanovic
Tonight the options are thin at the small forward position near the top with Gay being second on the list. Tonight the Kings small forward should see some chances to produce against a Lakers team that has allowed over 116 points per game during their current six game losing streak. Bogdanovic on the other hand will need to carry the load for the Nets in a game that could get out of hand early if Harden is hot out of the gate.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Paul George
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Danilo Gallinari
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Marco Belinelli
Power Forwards – Dwight Powell & Jabari Parker
Question marks all over the board tonight at the power forward slot including wether or not Blake Griffin will be in action. If Griffin is in action we like him against a Trailblazers team allowing the most fantasy points to the power forward position. That being said he did miss the team’s last game leading to us to go with Powell and Parker. Parker has put up over 30 fantasy points in four of his last five games while Powell continues to see consistent minutes with Dirk Nowitzki out.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Blake Griffin (Injury Status)
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Julius Randle
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Ryan Anderson
Center Option – Clint Capela
This was a easy option for us tonight as Capela offers us a solid fantasy contributor while carrying a fantasy salary under the $5k mark. Add that with the fact he will get a shot at Nets team allowing the most fantasy points to opposing centers makes him our top option to build around. The other option we really like is DeMarcus Cousins but the big time fantasy salary would have left some holes in our lineup.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: DeMarcus Cousins
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: DeAndre Jordan
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Jusuf Nurkic
