Monday isn’t just Monday anymore as we all have a chance to take home some cash playing NBA FanDuel. That includes multiple contests offering a top prize of $15k for first place as well as some very nice runner up money. Tonight FanDuel owners have a nice nine game lineup to build around including a few solid fantasy options.
The top option is New Orleans Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis who is tonight’s top option. Davis enters this game on a fantasy tear for owners reeling in four straight games with at least 52 points. Along with the those four straight games Davis has six 50 plus fantasy performances over his last seven contests.
Meanwhile one top option to monitor is the Washington Wizards point guard John Wall who left the team’s last game with what is being called a knee bruise. If Wall is not in the lineup tonight Bradley Beal emerges as one of the top fantasy options at the shooting guard position while Ramon Sessions becomes a fantasy sleeper option at the point guard position.
Along with Davis a few of the other top fantasy options include Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin and Damian Lillard.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Monday December 7th, 2015.
PG – Jrue Holiday ($5,000): Holiday is coming off his best fantasy performance of the season and we expect that to continue tonight against the Boston Celtics. Tonights Pelicans/Celtics matchup has the highest over/under line of the night at 213 points.
PG – Reggie Jackson ($7,900): The Detroit Pistons point guard has been a great option at a more reasonable price than some of the top options. Over his last ten games, Jackson has eight games with at least 30 fantasy points including games with 51 and 60.6 fantasy points.
SG – O.J. Mayo ($4,100): Mayo is a big time fantasy gamble but after posting back to back games with at least 25 fantasy points he is worth it. If Mayo can drop 25-30 fantasy points it is well worth the $4,100 salary.
SG – Avery Bradley ($6,000): Sticking with tonights Celtics/Pelicans contest lands us with Bradley. The Celtics shooting guard has turned in three straight solid fantasy performances including 37.9 against the Miami Heat a last week.
SF – Otto Porter ($5,100): While we considered going with Bradley Beal tonight but we elected to go with the cheaper option in Porter. Porter has been inconsistent at times this season but has shown his ability to post 30 plus fantasy outings.
SF – DeMarre Carroll ($5,600): Look for Carroll to put up some fantasy numbers tonight against a very bad Los Angeles Lakers team. Another solid option is to use someone like Carmelo Anthony if Wall is out while going with Sessions as a fantasy sleeper.
PF – Anthony Davis ($11,200): Now we have elected to go with Davis tonight simply based on how he has been playing. One option we considered is to go cheaper at this pick to allow us to spread the money across the board while avoiding a fantasy option that we expect to be used in a high percentage of fantasy leagues tonight.
PF – Markieff Morris ($5,100): Tonight’s Phoenix Suns contest against the Chicago Bulls game has a chance to be a high scoring contest. Since we went expensive with Davis we elected to go cheaper with at our second power forward position. If Morris can deliver us one of those 34 point fantasy performances we saw back in November it is worth the play.
C – Andre Drummond ($9,600): Taking Drummond tonight was a simple play as the top fantasy option at the center position. Over his last five games, Drummond has turned in four games with at least 40 fantasy including two of those games with over 53 fantasy points.
