Now let’s move on to the NBA DFS Plays for Monday!
Darren Collison – Indiana (vs Utah)
Collison’s production has been all over the place this season, but that may stabilize with Victor Oladipo out for tonight’s game. Oladipo’s absence creates a massive void in usage, and Collison will have an opportunity for higher rates across the board with the ball in his hands more often. There’s a good chance he’ll trend on the higher side of his usual 25-35 minute allotment as well. The matchup isn’t too bad either, as Utah ranks 24th vs opposing point guards. I’m willing to take a chance on him given the situation.
Dennis Schroder – Oklahoma City (at Sacramento)
Russell Westbrook is still out, and you all probably know the drill by now. Schroder has stepped into starter minutes with higher rates in Westbrook’s absence, elevating him to 39+ fantasy points in three straight. He has a nice matchup to keep that going, facing a Sacramento team that ranks bottom ten in defensive efficiency vs opposing backcourts. Schroder has proven the ability to coexist peacefully alongside big performances from Paul George and Steven Adams in recent games. That could happen again while considering this competitive, high-scoring draw.
Tyreke Evans – Indiana (vs Utah)
Victor Oladipo has been ruled out on Monday, so Tyreke Evans will likely see more playing time with heightened responsibilities. There’s even a chance he might start. Regardless of that, I like him as a solid value play on FanDuel and DraftKings. Even if he’s coming off the bench, Evans will be asked to pick up the slack with Oladipo sidelined. There’s certainly potential for more minutes and usage to funnel through Tyreke, and he’s the type of player who welcomes that responsibility with open arms (and plenty of shots).
Tobias Harris – LA Clippers (at Atlanta)
I love Tobias Harris in this spot. He’s tangled in a high-scoring road matchup against an Atlanta defense that ranks dead last in team defensive efficiency, 29th vs power forwards, first in pace, and 24th in rebound rate. Not convinced yet? Harris has been seeing heavy playing time while topping 36+ minutes in each of his past five games. That certainly raises his floor/ceiling combination along with the aggressive rebounding ability of 8+ boards in six straight.
Steven Adams – Oklahoma City (at Sacramento)
Steven Adams has looked great this season while averaging a steady 37 FPPG. I’m thinking he can surpass that threshold while looking at a favorable matchup at Sacramento. The Kings rank 25th in defensive efficiency vs opposing centers and 27th in rebound rate, so this draw plays perfectly into Adams’ strengths. The OKC big man has been cruising’ with 38+ fantasy points in each of his past six games, and he has upside beyond that tonight.
