Jeff Green Will Have an Even Bigger Role Monday
If you haven’t checked on NBA news yet, you should before you set your roster because a lot of guys are getting rested this time of the year. For Monday, Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) could all miss out on action. Duncan and Pierce will likely be rested by their coaches as they are in the second game of a back-to-back.
Jeff Green, F, Celtics (at MIN):
$6,700 16th Forward at DraftKings.com
$15,059, 6th Forward at DraftStreet.com
Notice the value you can get for Green at DK. Sure, the positions are a little different, but not by that much. Green will likely see a bigger offensive role with Pierce out. Others to check out: Avery Bradley, Courtney Lee and Jordan Crawford.
Greg Stiemsma, C, Timberwolves (vs. BOS):
$3,000 (minimum) at DraftKings.com
$8,850 at DraftStreet.com
With this one, you have to keep an eye on Pekovic’s status. Stiemsma played 40 minutes in his absence on Saturday and put in a solid Fantasy effort for how cheap he is. Boston is a solid defensive team, but they’ve actually been average on the road.
James Anderson, SG, Rockets (vs. ORL):
$3,000 at DraftKings.com
$7,398 at DraftStreet.com
James Harden missed Saturday’s game (and they still beat the Clippers somehow) and did not participate in Monday’s early shootaround. Anderson started for him last game and played 26 minutes. They will be going against the Magic, so expect plenty of points. One more to consider is Francisco Garcia.
Here are some teams to focus on if you want to capitalize on poor defensive efficiency in home/away games:
- Toronto vs. Detroit. Andre Drummond has been playing well since his return from a back injury. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are good plays from the guard spot.
- Atlanta vs. Cleveland. Josh Smith is expensive, but you know you can count on him in this game.
- Milwaukee vs. Charlotte. Even with all of their scoring guards, Ersan Ilyasova has been one of the Bucks more consistent players recently.
