The Monday Morning Blues have set in as another action packed weekend of fantasy sports has come to an end while another week gets set to tip off. This includes an exciting Monday Night of NBA Basketball that features a nine game slate for daily fantasy owners to cash in on.
At the center of that nine game slate will tip off in Indiana as the Golden State Warriors make the trip out East to take on the Pacers. On paper this game looks to be the top contest of the night to build your daily fantasy lineup around with a trio of top tier options for the Warriors as well as a few interesting options for the Pacers.
The first of those options is Kevin Durant who has been on fire posting back to back games over the 51 fantasy point mark as well as posting at least 41 fantasy points in six straight games. The second of those options is Stephen Curry who has posted over 47 fantasy points in three of his last five games while the third of those options is Draymond Green who is averaging over 37 fantasy points a game this season.
That being said the top tier fantasy options don’t end their Monday Night as the list of options taking to the floor includes James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeMar DeRozan and John Wall. Meanwhile one fantasy sleeper we like on Monday Night is Glenn Robinson III who has is slotted to make another start at the small forward position in place.
Here is our top NBA FanDuel Options for Monday November 21st, 2016
NBA FanDuel Point Guard Options
John Wall, Washington Wizards: On Monday Night we will have a bunch of nice fantasy options at the point guard position.. One of those options is Wall who will get his shot at a Phoenix Suns team that has allowed the fourth most fantasy points to opposing point guards this season.
Jonathan Gibson, Dallas Mavericks: Now Gibson is a big time fantasy gamble on Monday Night but he showed flashes of being a solid fantasy option after posting 35 fantasy points on Saturday Night. For now though we like him in GPP tournaments with Deron Williams, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris all expected to be out of the lineup.
Other Point Guard Fantasy Options we like is Stephen Curry and Chris Paul.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Patrick Beverley.
NBA FanDuel Shooting Guard Options
DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors: For me the decision to go with DeRozan tonight is very simple and it comes down to one thing. That one thing is the facts that the Raptors will need DeRozan to put together a big game in order to help them pick up a big win over a very good Clippers team. The only question we have is whether or not we should stack James Harden or Giannis Antetokounmpo with him.
Brandon Knight, Phoenix Suns: We tossed around the idea of using both Knight as well as the Suns other shooting guard Devin Booker. In the end we like Knight’s fantasy value on Monday Night as a sleeper option to help offset some of the high salary cap numbers. Knight has posted at least 20 fantasy points in four of his last seven games including 43.8 points just a few nights ago.
Other Shooting Guard Fantasy Options we like are Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden and Monta Ellis.
Fantasy Sleeper option we like is Josh Richardson.
NBA FanDuel Small Forward Options
Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs: Coming off a few days rest we could not resist going with the Spurs small forward tonight. Entering tonight Leonard has posted at least 37 fantasy points in three straight games. Tonight Leonard will lead his Spurs against a beat up Dallas Mavericks team opening up a ton of fantasy scoring opportunities.
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves: There is no way we would look past the Timberwolves small forward tonight against the Celtics. Entering tonight the Celtics rank first in the NBA in fantasy points allowed to opposing small forwards this season this includes allowing 51.5 to Kevin Durant and 32 to Marcus Morris in their last two games.
Other Small Forward Fantasy Options we like include Kevin Durant and Otto Porter.
Fantasy Sleeper option we like is James Ennis.
NBA FanDuel Power Forward Options
Tobias Harris, Detroit Pistons: For us the Power Forward position is one of those slots where you could save some serious salary cap space. At the front of those mid tier options sits Harris who will look to take advantage of a Rockets team that sits near the top in fantasy points allowed to opposing power forwards.
Thaddeus Young, Indiana Pacers: Young is another solid fantasy option based on his salary cap number as he looks to continue his recent success. This includes posting at least 20 fantasy points in seven straight games including 37.7 fantasy points in his last game.
Other Power Forward Fantasy Options we like is Draymond Green (will need to spend cheaper at small forward) and Serge Ibaka.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Dwight Powell.
NBA FanDuel Center Options
Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic: Now as you build your FanDuel lineups and even your other daily fantasy lineups Vucevic is just one of two top tier options we suggest building around with the other being Karl-Anthony Towns. Vucevic will look to take advantage of a Milwauakee Bucks team allowing the most fantasy points to opposing centers while Towns gets a crack at the team allowing the second most.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Zaza Pachulia.
