FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA

Giannis Antetokounmpo Fantasy

Target Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,100): Giannis Antetokounmpo has the second-highest salary on Monday, but he's well worth the money. When facing these same Washington Wizards on Saturday, the two-time MVP totaled 64.7 FanDuel fantasy points with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. It was second triple-double in as many games following the All-Star break. The Wizards are giving up the second-most points per game (119.7) and fourth-most rebounds per game (56.2) to opponents this season, which makes this a mouth-watering matchup for Giannis.

LaMelo Ball Fantasy

Target LaMelo Ball, PG, Charlotte Hornets ($8,500): LaMelo Ball has been on a tear of late, scoring above his season average of 35.7 FanDuel points per outing in seven of his last eight games. Ball's numbers are up across the board in this recent stretch, with the Rookie of the Year favorite putting up 20.8 points, 7.3 assists and 6.1 rebounds per contest in that time while shooting 50% from 3-point land. He draws a favorable matchup on Monday against a Sacramento Kings' defense allowing the most PPG (120.0) to opponents in the league, setting Ball up for a great night.

DeAndre Jordan Fantasy

Target DeAndre Jordan, C, Brooklyn Nets ($4,600): A value target tonight, Brooklyn Nets big man DeAndre Jordan has picked up his production after rejoining the starting lineup. Over his past four games, Jordan is averaging 9.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, all outpacing his season averages. He has two 30-point fantasy performances in that stretch as well, with his uptick in minutes making him a viable fantasy option again. Against a New York Knicks frontcourt that's less imposing with Mitchell Robinson sidelined, Jordan should be able to keep up his recent play.

Russell Westbrook Fantasy

Avoid Russell Westbrook, PG, Washington Wizards ($10,200): Russell Westbrook carries a hefty price tag on Monday as the second-most expensive point guard on the slate. He is coming off of a season-high 72 fantasy points against these same Bucks, but that was an outlier performance with Bradley Beal sidelined. Now, Beal is set to return to the lineup, meaning Westbrook will have less offensive responsibility, cutting into his potential production. That fact alone makes it hard to shell out for Westbrook tonight.

Stephen Curry Fantasy

Avoid Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors ($9,400): The third-most expensive PG tonight, Stephen Curry is coming off of a 51.5-point fantasy outing on Sunday. However, the Golden State Warriors leaned on Curry in that game, with the star racking up 35 minutes to beat the Utah Jazz. Now, he'll face a Los Angeles Lakers defense that's allowing the second-fewest PPG (106.2) to opponents this season on the second night of a back-to-back. With Curry and his team spending their energy to take down the Jazz, the Warriors are a serious blowout risk tonight against a strong Lakers team, making Curry an avoid.
