FanDuel DFS Guards

Luka Doncic - SG, vs. LAL ($7,700)

After averaging 21.1 points in December, Doncic's production has slightly decreased in January, averaging only 17 points throughout the first three games of the month. However, he continues to take an abundance of shots, averaging nearly 15 per game this season. The Rookie of the Year hopeful will be matched up against a Lakers team that is sorely missing LeBron James, who has been out since Christmas with a groin injury, and Rajon Rondo, who will be out for the foreseeable future with a hand issue. At only $7,700, it is not unreasonable to think that he will have no issues hitting his value on Monday night.

Donovan Mitchell - SG, @ MIL ($7,700)

After starting the year averaging 23 points per game, Mitchell has been streaky this season, averaging only 18 points in December to close out the year. However, 2019 has been kind to the 22-year-old as he is averaging 21 points per outing on 42 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent from behind the arc throughout three games. Just like Doncic, this price is too good to pass up, especially when you consider that Milwaukee is allowing 41.61 fantasy points a game to opposing shooting guards this season, good for seventh-worst in the league.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Aaron Gordon - PF, @ SAC ($7,200)

Gordon and the Magic will travel to Sacramento for a game that is projected to have a combined overall score of 224 points, the highest of the night. With this game also projected to have a pace of 103.59 possessions, the second-highest of the slate, and with the Kings inefficient play on the defensive end, Gordon should, and likely will, put out an effective fantasy performance.

Josh Jackson - SF, vs. ORL ($4,400)

If Iman Shumpert sits out again as a result of a finger injury, Bogdan Bogdanovic will slide in the starting rotation, leaving some minutes up for grabs. With Shumpert out of the lineup in the narrow loss to the Warriors a few nights ago, Jackson logged 34 minutes, finishing things up with 28 points on 5-for-7 shooting from downtown. While it is unlikely that he would have such a repeat performance, it goes without question that his usage will get a nice bump if Shumpert misses another one. Keep an eye on this situation as opening tip draws near.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic - C, @ SAC ($9,700)

Vucevic is currently enjoying the best season of his career, averaging 20 points, 12 boards, and a block per outing. His play was somewhat shoddy against the Clippers on Sunday night, but having logged only 32 minutes, he should have plenty of juice in the tank to have a bounce-back performance against a Sacramento squad that he put up 15 points and pulled down 15 boards against earlier in the season.
