The NBA begins the week with eight games on the schedule Monday. We could be looking at some lopsided scores, such as when the Hornets take on the Celtics and when the Wizards face the Bucks. Let’s dig into the Yahoo DFS slate and highlight some players to consider for your lineups, as well as a few to possibly avoid.
De’Aaron Fox, SAC at NO ($40): Injuries have taken a toll on the Pelicans, who are particularly thin at guard. Fox comes into the matchup on fire, starting the season with averages of 31.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game. With his 32.3 percent usage rate, he has one of the highest floors of any guard included in this slate.
Malik Beasley, MIL at WAS ($12): The Wizards are always a team to attack in DFS. They have played at the second-fastest pace, and they have the sixth-worst defensive rating in the league. If there is one thing that Beasley can do, it’s score. Over his last three games, he scored at least 20 points two times. At near the minimum salary, he could be well worth the risk in tournament play.
Guard to Avoid
Klay Thompson, GS vs. HOU ($20): It has been a rough start for Thompson, who is shooting only 40.0 percent from the field. He is shooting just 33.0 percent from behind the arc, which is on pace to be the lowest mark of his career. Facing a Rockets team that has the fourth-best defensive rating might not help Thompson come out of his funk.
Jayson Tatum, BOS at CHA ($44): Like the Wizards, the Hornets are one of the other top teams to attack in DFS. They have played at the 10th-fastest pace and they have the worst defensive rating in the league. This is the second game of a back-to-back set for the Celtics, so if they race out to a big lead early, they could rest some of their starters in the fourth quarter. However, if the game does get out of hand, Tatum likely would have played a significant role in getting it to that point. His scoring is down a bit, but he still has stellar averages of 26.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Duncan Robinson, MIA at CHI ($15): Robinson is one of the best three-point shooters in the…
