NBA DFS 11/22/2021

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Monday, 11/22, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA - 11/22

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,700): Giannis Antetokounmpo is well worth the price. He just thrashed this Orlando Magic team for 32 points, 20 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals. His 73.5 FanDuel fantasy points on Saturday prove he's too much for this Magic defense to handle. Orlando allows the sixth-most PPG and owns the fourth-worst defensive rating in the league, making this a mouth-watering matchup to exploit.

Jonas Valanciunas Fantasy

Target Jonas Valanciunas, C, New Orleans Pelcians ($8,000): Jonas Valanciunas could be the play of the night. He manhandled the Minnesota Timberwolves in two prior games this year, putting up a combined 42 points, 40 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks. Minnesota is giving up the most rebounds per game to opponents at 48.8, so the big man has huge double-double potential in this one.

Patty Mills Fantasy

Target Patty Mills, SG/PG, Brooklyn Nets ($4,500): Patty Mills offers plenty of value at his current price. He's been on fire as of late, scoring 20-plus points in three of his last four outings while shooting a scorching 56.9% from the field and 56.8% from deep. Mills is letting it fly with 12.8 field goal attempts and 9.3 three-point attempts in this span, so it's clear the Brooklyn Nets want him involved. The veteran is seeing 33.1 minutes over his last four games, and his production as a bench spark plug is hard to ignore.

Jayson Tatum Fantasy

Avoid Jayson Tatum, SF/PF, Boston Celtics ($10,000): Jayson Tatum has lit it up with Jaylen Brown sidelined. In nine Brown-less games so far, Tatum has averaged 28.9 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. Those numbers drop to 21.6 and 8.0, though, with Brown in the lineup this season. Now Brown is expected to suit up on Monday following an eight-game absence. With this Celtics team at full strength again, they could run the league-worst Houston Rockets out of the building. Blowout potential caps Tatum's upside, especially with his All-Star teammate back in the mix.

Ja Morant Fantasy

Avoid Ja Morant, PG, Memphis Grizzlies ($9,800): Ja Morant may fall victim to a brutal matchup on Monday. Morant is one of the league's top stories in his breakout campaign. But the Utah Jazz's defense poses problems for anyone on a nightly basis. Utah allows the fifth-fewest PPG and boasts the fourth-best defensive rating this season, which is a serious threat to Morant's scoring and assist production. There's too much risk to bank on Morant having a night that lives up to his price tag.
