Monday’s NBA DFS Resourceful Plays from RosterResource…
Stephen Curry – We can work him into a FD lineup with Harden. Steph has actually missed the projections by a bit in three of the last four games – all at home – but the Warriors are expected to score over 105 points here and backcourt partner Klay Thompson is still sidelined.
Andre Iguodala – Iggy had a season-high 37 fantasy points three games ago, then followed that up with a couple of mid-teens busts. Still, with Thompson out, all the Warriors share in more fantasy production from the league’s top offensive team. He is averaging nearly 30 minutes over his last four games.
Draymond Green – At home to WAS, we can expect the Warriors to score nearly 110 points in the highest-totaled game on the board. Be we don’t need points when it comes to Dray. We get our fantasy fill in every department. Green is one of the most profitable players in the league, but he has missed expectations in four of his last seven outings, leading to his lowest price since the beginning of the month.
Leandro Barbosa – The veteran was terrific last time out with 19 points and 28 minutes, putting up 20, 24 and 28 fantasy points over his last three games. And you can roster him for just 3.7k at FanDuel, as he has been instant offense when he enters the game. This will free you up for some cap space.
Bradley Beal – Count on Brad to get up some shots in the likely high-scoring affair at Golden State. Beal has really only failed to make near projection in one of his last five games. We see him making at least 25 FPs tonight, so a decent play for under 6k. Washington should come back with a strong effort tonight following a blowout loss at SAC last night, which may have been a look ahead spot for the Wizards.
John Wall – We’ll make a call on Wall to have a nice bounce back He is only 8.7k at DK, so target him there. Wall has been terrifically consistent in March, meeting or surpassing most expectations for nine-straight games until Sunday’s blip (just nearly 24 FPs only) at SAC.
Zach Randolph – ZeBo is usually a fantasy-point-per-minute guy, so no reason to think that wouldn’t be the case going up against the Knicks on Monday night. He is much cheaper at DK, but can be considered at both sites as we just prefer the matchup. There is blowout risk, as the Grizzlies are favored by double-digits.
Tony Allen – Fantasy failure Courtney Lee missed the last game with a sprained hand, so Allen started along side Jeff Green. Tony is always a consistent performer with a high floor and low ceiling. Twenty points are usually automatic and more is gravy, like the 34 FPs he turned in on Sat. night vs POR.
Mike Conley – Conley has returned from injury and had 38 FPs in his last game and is only 6.1k at both sites, so he’s a little better value at FanDuel. Since coming back, he had 26 minutes first game, then 34 min. last time out against Portland.
Langston Galloway – Galloway finished up strong after Alexey Shved left the game on Sun. Langston has tanked a couple of games of late, too, putting up under 10 FPs in two efforts, but he will be in the game obviously quite a bit more if Shved is down.
Derrick Favors – Teammate Gordon Hayward was injured when he was hit in the shoulder on Sat. That should increase the distribution to the already heavily-used Favors. Favors has been literally up and down of late, but he still averages 32 fantasy points, and against MIN, he should surpass that. He may be a little too expensive at DK, however.
Rudy Gobert – The Utah center is at home against MIN and has been of the most consistent centers this month. Gobert has actually been well short of projection for a couple of games following his steep salary increase of late. Rudy is a much better player at home, making most of those particular projections over the last five home outings.
Rodney Hood – Hood is 4.7k at DK, but he is even better a better bargain at FanDuel where he is 4.6k, as can be used safely on both sites. Rodney was red-hot when his minutes started to increase two weeks ago, but has come back down to earth a bit following a salary increase of over $1k. If Hayward is indeed out tomorrow against MIN, then good for Hood.
Brook Lopez – Is good to go as a target at DK at 6.5k. He is 7.6 over at FanDuel, so not as viable an option there. Lopez had over 65 fantasy points last week against MIL, then followed that up with a near-40-point fantasy performance at IND. He has scored at least 10 points in nine straight games.
Thad Young – The Nets were terrific in a follow-up win at IND following the triple-overtime win at home against MIL. Thad has been a pretty profitable player all month, although he has been under projections in two of his last three games.
Jae Crowder – It’s easy to see why fantasy players love Crowder. A do-it-all type that seemingly starts to make all his fantasy points – and then some – when the game starts to wear on. He could continue his good run of five-straight projection-beating efforts with a good DvP matchup against BKN tonight.
Donatas Motiejunas – D Mo is 5.6k at FanDuel so he could be a play. He had basically become a disappointment for several weeks until this recent spell of four nice games, which has taken his salary up $700. He has nearly 40-point upside, as well.
Kemba Walker – The Charlotte star is back in the starting lineup and the Bulls are allowing more than a fair share of points to opposing point guards over the last three weeks. Still a great price on FD at 6.9k, he put up 44 FPs last night at MIN.
