NBA DFS 1/10/2022

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Monday, 1/10, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA - 1/10

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,500): Giannis Antetokounmpo draws a familiar matchup in the Charlotte Hornets on Monday. Antetokounmpo has dominated against the Hornets this season with outings of 64.9 and 67.9 FanDuel fantasy points in two games so far. The two-time MVP has scored at least 40 points in both meetings, so he knows how to take advantage of a Hornets defense surrendering the second-most PPG to opponents this season.

Anferee Simons Fantasy

Target Anfernee Simons, PG/SG, Portland Trail Blazers ($7,300): Anfernee Simons has surged as of late with the Portland Trail Blazers' depth issues at guard. Simons' numbers have spiked in minutes (36.7), field goal attempts (17.5), assists (6.8) and points (29.0) per game over the last four contests. Not only are Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum sidelined, but now Norman Powell has landed on the COVID list. The opportunity available makes Simons an extremely attractive play no matter the matchup.

Rajon Rondo Fantasy

Target Rajon Rondo, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers ($4,100): Rajon Rondo is a solid option for low-cost production. Rondo has immediately stepped into a bigger role with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he's put up at least 23 fantasy points in his first two games with his new squad. Rondo has provided scoring (13.0 PPG) and playmaking (4.0 APG) to begin his Cavs tenure, and he should thrive in both areas against a Sacramento Kings team that ranks fifth-worst in defensive rating.

De'Aaron Fox Fantasy

Avoid De'Aaron Fox, PG, Sacramento Kings ($8,100): De'Aaron Fox is coming off of a disappointing 23-point fantasy night on Monday despite facing the lowly Blazers. Fox was on the injury report prior to that contest, and he finished with 6-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-4 from deep and 1-of-4 from the free throw line. It's worth wondering if Fox's shoulder soreness played a role. He'll now take on a stiff Cavs team that ranks No. 3 in defensive rating, after playing nearly 36 minutes last night, so he's not worth the risk.

Myles Turner Fantasy

Avoid Myles Turner, C/PF, Indiana Pacers ($7,500): Myles Turner's been lackluster as of late. He hasn't recorded more than 7 rebounds in any of the last three games, and he's put up single-digit scoring totals in two of those contests as well. Turner's scoring troubles severely cap his upside, and things won't get any easier against a Boston Celtics defense that ranks in the top 10 for fewest opponent PPG. Turner could provide a mediocre return on investment if he struggles to crack double digits in his two key areas once again.
