Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Nov. 19, 2018
T.J. Warren, PF, Phoenix Suns
Warren is one of the most effortless scorers you will ever see and after a slow start, he’s back at it with 21 or more in each of his last 5 games. He doesn’t offer much except over 5 rebounds during that same span but as long as he is putting up points, he’ll always be an asset in daily fantasy.
Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans
Between Paul George and Holiday, the latter is a more viable option because he costs less than PG13 and a ceiling just as high. He is averaging 21.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 10.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1 block over the last 15 days. The Pelicans will have San Antonio as the visitors Monday night and the fact that it’s the second of a back-to-back already for the Spurs will make it easier for Holiday and Co.
Paul Millsap, PF/C, Denver Nuggets
Millsap’s roller-coaster season continues but he had one of his best games of the season (25 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 blocks) against Milwaukee last Nov. 11. The Nuggets will again draw the Bucks Monday night so expect Millsap to feast on his matchup once again.
Bargains to consider:
Mike Muscala, PF, Philadelphia 76ers— Hasn’t had a big game yet but has played at least 25 minutes since Nov. 3 and 31 and 36 minutes, respectively, over the last two. He could start hitting shots soon.
Monte Morris, PG, Denver Nuggets— Speaking of playing heavy minutes, it definitely looks like Morris has the trust of coach Mike Malone. He is on the floor for at least 27 minutes of playing time over the last four games with varying degrees of success. Morris had 10 assists the last time Denver played Milwaukee so maybe he could give a similar type of production this time around.
Cody Zeller, C, Charlotte Hornets— Zeller is unquestionably the Hornets’ starting center and if he could just go easy on the fouls, he’ll be a much productive player than he already is. He has fouled out three of the last 4 games, a span in which he is averaging a solid 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 0.8 blocks on respectable percentages.
