The NBA season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your NBA FanDuel lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.

And be sure to checkout our nightly against the spread (ATS) picks as well.

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Monday, 5/10, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,300): Giannis Antetokounmpo has returned from his ankle injury with zero hiccups. He's averaging 56.1 FanDuel fantasy points over his last four games while putting up 31.1 points, 10.0 rebounds and 5.8 assists. He gets an appealing matchup on Monday against the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio is a middle-of-the-pack defense (112.0 PPG) and the Spurs give up the fourth-most RPG (55.0) in the league. Giannis should have success across the boxscore tonight, making him a prime target as the Bucks jostle for playoff seeding in the East.

Trae Young Fantasy

Target Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks ($8,400): Trae Young's scoring has taken off in recent games, which is great news heading into a matchup against the Washington Wizards. Young is averaging 32.5 PPG on 57.6% shooting from the field and 42.9% from deep in his last five outings. And he's recorded 10-plus assists in each of his last three games. Young's success as a scorer and distubtror sets him up for a monster night against the Wizards, who give up the most PPG (118.7) to opponents in the league. Washington also plays at the league's fastest pace (104.1 possessions per game), making this a possible shootout that Young should thrive in.

Eric Bledsoe Fantasy

Target Eric Bledsoe, SG, New Orleans Pelicans ($5,700): The New Orleans Pelicans are limping to the finish line and Eric Bledsoe is benefiting from the absence of key players like Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson. Bledsoe has racked up 33-plus minutes in each of his last three outings, averaging 36.4 fantasy points over that stretch (way above his season average of 23.7). The veteran has upped his numbers across the board in PPG (18.7), APG (6.3) and RPG (4.7) while taking over as one of the Pelicans' only options. He should continue to have an increased role on Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Damian Lillard Fantasy

Avoid Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($9,500): Damian Lillard has snapped out of his April slump and is no longer an avoid for his play. Instead, his recent uptick in production has the Blazers rolling as they look to avoid the play-in tournament. Portland has found its groove, winning seven of its last eight contests and blowing out lesser competition. The Houston Rockets are on the bottom of the league totem pole this season and have a laundry list of injuries heading into Monday's game. Expect Portland to make quick work of the depleted Rockets and give Lillard the night off early for some much-needed rest before the playoffs.

Jarrett Allen Fantasy

Avoid Jarrett Allen, C, Cleveland Cavaliers ($6,800): Jarrett Allen's numbers are on a downward trend as the Cleveland Cavaliers suffer blowout loss after blowout loss. The Cavaliers have lost their last five games by an average margin of 23.2 points, while the high-scoring Indiana Pacers have put up games with 152, 141, and 133 points over their last five outings. The blowout factor could make Allen an early exit candidate. Plus, he'll face a rebound magnet in Domantas Sabonis (11.8 RPG) that could seriously limit his potential on Monday.
