STEPHEN CURRY MAY HAVE THE BEST VALUE OF THE TOP STUDS

All right, all right. There’s only three days left of the NBA regular season so let’s make them count. There are 11 games on Monday night so we should be able to put together a solid squad, hopefully dissimilar to those of your opponents.
Stephen Curry, G, Warriors (vs. SAS) $8,700 at DraftKings.com
$9,700 at FanDuel.com
When looking to spend your money, you have to look for the best situations. Carmelo Anthony is the most expensive player at DK for a reason. But there are others like LeBron who’s cheaper because he’s only been playing 30 minutes per game, to rest for the playoffs. Then the Thunder should have an easy game which means Durant and Westbrook might see shortened court time. That leaves Curry who gets the Spurs on a road back-to-back. Not to mention Curry is coming off a 47-point effort. I mean, he’s more than $2,000 less than Melo. Why spend more when you can get the same production spending less?
Luis Scola, F/C, Suns (vs. HOU) $6,100 at DraftKings.com
$5,900 at FanDuel.com
The rest of the Suns frontcourt is a question mark due to Michael Beasley as he’s taken two games off already for the birth of his daughter. Fortunately, Scola will get time no matter what and the Rockets are brutal defensively.
Joe Johnson, G/F, Nets (vs. WAS) $5,000 at DraftKings.com
$5,200 at FanDuel.com
I know Johnson has been a disappointment this year and he’s coming off a 4-for-16 performance on Sunday. I think he’ll want to get back in the flow of things and looking for a good game heading into the playoffs. This matchup with the Wizards presents exactly that. For his value, you can’t get much more upside.
Andre Drummond, F/C, Pistons (vs. PHI) $4,900 at DraftKings.com
$6,200 at FanDuel.com
It was a close choice between Brandon Knight and Drummond, but I went with the kid that’s a lock for 10 rebounds. The 76ers just played on Sunday and will have trouble in this game. Drummond should see quality minutes in a favorable matchup.
James Harden, G/F, Rockets (at PHX) $8,400 at DraftKings.com
$9,400 at FanDuel.com
I listed him as a top play yesterday and it worked out. Harden should be fine for this back-to-back as he didn’t play a full game yesterday. Expect more good things against the Suns. That means 50 Fantasy Points is a real possibility.
Andre Iguodala will be a favorite for many after his solid Sunday performance… Jrue Holiday has had success against the Pistons this year, so he can be looked at although he’s struggled lately… Nate Robinson has been playing really good basketball lately and should keep it up against the Magic… It’s been a while, but Mo Williams is a solid option once again… Josh McRoberts will be a favorite of many so keep that in mind.
