FanDuel NBA Lineup Advice: Monday (12/9)

Dec 9, 2019

Donovan Mitchell poses a potential star-studded option at a non-premium price.

Kicking the week off right, Monday’s schedule is slated for a heavy nine-game slate with the Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, Sacramento Kings, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Minnesota Timberwolves all operating on a back-to-back. As usual, tip-off locks at 7 p.m. EST.

Point Guard

Ja Morant (MEM): $8,000 @ GSW
Morant is finally expected to return after a four-game absence, so make sure to keep an eye on his status and any potential minutes restrictions that may follow. If Morant is cleared, he’s a great play tonight as the Golden State Warriors rank 25th in defensive rating and 19th in pace. Morant was playing great prior to the injury, scoring 45+ FanDuel points in three of his last four games. The quick pace of this contest plays right into the hands of Morant.

Markelle Fultz (ORL): $6,200 @ MIL
Fultz does not possess a good matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks which rank 1st in defensive rating and 1st in pace, but the game does pose some intrigue because of the speed of which the Bucks operate. Although it is a tough matchup – both individually and as a whole – Fultz should have plenty of opportunities to jack up shots in a game where the Orlando Magic are very likely to be playing keep-up. Just as a note, Fultz has struggled in his past two contests.
