Nine games around the league on Monday with a number high-quality forwards and centers up for grabs.
The games are spaced out, so get ready to check the live scoring every 10-minutes. Things tip off at 7 p.m. ET with the Kings heading east to face the Wizards. 7:30 p.m. ET has LeBron in the Garden as the Cavaliers meet the Knicks. The Grizzlies growl at the Bucks and the Hawks meet the Pelicans on the ground at 8 p.m. ET. At 9 p.m. ET the Lakers will face the Suns and the Timberwolves take on the Jazz. The Nuggets finally hit the road at 10 p.m. ET, taking on the Trail Blazers. The night wraps up at 10:30 p.m. ET with the Magic against the Warriors and the 76ers trying to extend the losing streak of the Clippers.
My favorite plays of the day can be found on the following slides in FanSided’s FanDuel daily picks. Each day in order to offer a variety of price points at each position, you can find two slides for each position–one for high-salary options and one for high-value options. Each pick is ranked on a scale of 1-5 stars to indicate the confidence in the pick. The final slide of this post has more detail on what each level means, but in short, more stars means more confidence in the selection on a points-per-dollar basis.

Important note, every day the goal of this post is not to give you a copy-and-paste lineup. Instead, each selection is given while highlighting the factors you need to consider when building a customized lineup for yourself. If you want to see an example lineup, you can find it on the final slide of the post, but I suggest you adjust your lineup to fit your personal taste.
To keep up with all of FanSided’s DFS NBA coverage head over to the fantasy basketball hub where each day you can find a post like this tailored for DraftKings as well as one specifically designed for usage on FanDuel. In this post, all salary and “fantasy points” references are to DraftKings scoring system and salaries.
