The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. If you need some advice on your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.

NBA DFS 2/7/2022

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Monday, 2/7, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA - 2/7

Pascal Siakam Fantasy

Target Pascal Siakam, PF, Toronto Raptors ($9,700): Pascal Siakam is on a roll over the last five games. He's averaging 24.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.2 steals during this span, all while playing a whopping 43.4 minutes per contest. He now draws an appetizing matchup in the Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte gives up the third-most PPG and third-most RPG this season, making this an ideal opponent for Siakam to keep things up.

Bam Adebayo Fantasy

Target Bam Adebayo, C/PF, Miami Heat ($9,400): With only five games on Monday's slate, it's worth splurging on a second pricey option. Bam Adebayo has dominated on the boards (11.3 RPG) over the last three games and enjoyed an uptick in scoring (23.3 PPG) while wreaking havoc on defense (3.0 SPG). Adebayo will continue to be leaned upon for scoring as Jimmy Butler plays through a toe injury, and he's got a great chance to hit double-digit rebounds against a Washington team giving up the 10th-most RPG to opponents.

Jonathan Kuminga Fantasy

Target Jonathan Kuminga, SF, Golden State Warriors ($5,400): Jonathan Kuminga could be a solid value play on Monday. He's averaging 27.5 minutes over the last two games with Otto Porter Jr. sidelined, and he's produced with 18.5 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 2.0 APG. This would be the perfect game to let the rookie get extended run, too, given Golden State is a 13-point favorite over Oklahoma City and could make this a blowout by the end of the first half. As long as Porter and Andre Iguodala remain out, Kuminga has every chance to record his third straight game with at least 27 FanDuel fantasy points.

Nikola Vucevic Fantasy

Avoid Nikola Vucevic, C, Chicago Bulls ($10,500): Nikola Vucevic can disappoint when facing a tough opposing big man, and that was the case on Sunday. The Chicago Bulls big man finished with 35.9 fantasy points against Joel Embiid, recording single-digit rebounds for the first time since Jan. 28. That rebounding run has come against teams with weak frontcourts, though, and that won't be the case on Monday. The Phoenix Suns boast a top center rotation in Deandre Ayton, Bismack Biyombo and JaVale McGee, who are averaging a combined 24.9 RPG between them this season. Vooch is too hard to trust as the most expensive option on the slate, especially against the league's sixth-best scoring defense.

LaMelo Ball Fantasy

Avoid LaMelo Ball, PG, Charlotte Hornets ($9,200): Do-it-all guard LaMelo Ball has failed to light up the box score recently, managing a meager 13.5 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 3.0 APG in his last two outings. Those numbers are all down from his season averages, and his drop in playmaking (season average of 7.5 APG) is especially notable. His scoring and distributing will pick up again soon, but tonight doesn't look like his bounce-back game. Toronto owns the ninth-best scoring defense and has held opposing PGs to the second-fewest fantasy points per game this season.
