The countdown to the final regular season game is fast approaching as the 2015-16 NBA season comes to an end in less than a month. While that seems like a long time away it limits the chances we all have at taking home some cash on FanDuel. That is exactly what we will be looking to do on Monday Night as the NBA delivers a solid nine game slate on the hardwood floor to build around.
That nine game slate features some very interesting top tier fantasy options as well as some really good fantasy sleepers to build around. One of those top tier options is point guard John Wall who is riding five straight double doubles including back to back triple doubles.
Then you have DeMarcus Cousins who has not scored less than 45 fantasy points in four straight games as well as eight of the teams last ten games. Sticking with top tier fantasy options another great choice would be Stephen Curry as he looks to lead his Golden State Warriors to a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
On the bottom end of the spectrum one of the fantasy sleepers we like is point guard Ray McCallum for the Memphis Grizzlies. McCallum is a risky fantasy play but coming off a solid 22.9 fantasy outing and the potential he has on Monday Night against the Phoenix Suns lands him on our FanDuel Lineup for Monday March 21st, 2016.
Here is our NBA FanDuel Lineup for Monday March 21st, 2016.
PG – John Wall ($9,900): How can we not go with Wall on Monday Night against the Atlanta Hawks? Wall has been playing lights out as he looks to carry the Wizards into the postseason.
PG – Ray McCallum, Memphis Grizzlies ($3,700): While the risk is heavy we like his potential on Monday Night. Now we suggest monitoring the lineup situation later in the day but if McCallum starts we strong recommend him against a Suns team allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing point guards in the NBA.
SG – Klay Thompson ($7,000): We could have easily gone with Stephen Curry in place of Wall but in the end we valued Thompson’s upside as much as his teammates on Monday Night.
SG – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($5,600): Caldwell-Pope might not be a top tier option at shooting guard but he is a very productive for the price tag. Entering Monday Night, Caldwell-Pope has posted at least 25 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games.
SF – Paul George ($9,200): George is one of the top fantasy options on Monday Night going up against the Philadelphia 76ers. Entering this matchup the 76ers are allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing small forwards in the NBA. The Pacers small forward is coming off a huge 61 point fantasy point performance.
SF – Otto Porter ($4,800): Sticking with looking at fantasy bargains based on salary landed us with the Washington Wizards small forward. Porter has posted at least 23 fantasy points in five straight games.
PF – Aaron Gordon ($6,000): Gordon is a shaky start much like McCallum is but he has been a little more consistent over the past month. Now Gordon gets a shot at a Boston Celtics team that is allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing power forwards entering Monday Night.
PF – Draymond Green ($8,100): We tossed around a few options including going with a low tier option with this slot. In the end we like the matchup for the Warriors on Monday Night against the Timberwolves.
C – Al Jefferson ($5,200): Now this was a difficult decision for us as we really loved the idea of going with Cousins. Now one option is to go really cheap at the power forward position such as Amir Johnson for the Celtics at just $3,800 to allow us to team up Cousins with Wall. In the end Jefferson is a solid option for us tonight as we expect the Spurs to possible rest a few of their veterans since this game is on the road in Charlotte.
