Fantasy Basketball: Who’s hot, a player to pick up, and a DFS target for Monday

- Advertisement -

Five players have scored at least 30 points in eight games to end week five on Sunday, with Stephen Curry topping the fantasy basketball leaderboard for the second time in the last three games. Anthony Davis continued to dominate and help his team build a winning streak, while Klay Thomson scored a season-high 41 points. The action will continue on Monday with the first tablet of week 6. We’ll go over some notable statistic lines from the weekend before setting up a posting bounce target and DFS play for Monday here.

Curry finished Week 5 with a season-high 15 assists in a double-double against the Houston Rockets. On Sunday, he scored 33 points and missed at least five triples in the third game in a row. The Golden State Warriors defenseman is an effective circus hitter and has twice been the NBA’s top fantasy scorer in his last three games. Team Dubs’ success is below average, but the fantasy managers can certainly count on Curry getting his numbers while they figure things out.

Davis finally flipped the switch? The big Los Angeles Lakers player scored his third double-double in a row to end the weekend with 30 points and a season-high 18 rebounds in just 28 minutes. The Lakers have won three games in a row without LeBron James, and Davis’ offensive aggression works wonders. He has flourished from the center, but I can’t help but wonder if there are any adjustments being made now that Thomas Bryant is healthy. However, fantasy managers should expect Davis to keep his sassy as long as James is away.

The Suns posted a respectable 2-2 record last week without Chris Paul (heel), and Payne has a lot to do with it. The left point guard averaged 19.0 points, 6.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game as a bench in week five. It appears that Paul may have missed several games in Week 6, so Payne should remain a key player in the Phoenix defense rotation. coming days. Fantasy managers should try to get at least one or two quality starts from him before Paul gets into the fight again.

James Harden and Tyrese Maxey will miss several weeks with foot injuries, meaning the Philadelphia 76ers defense pair have more minutes. Milton had 27 points and six rebounds in his first start of the season and will need to provide scoring when two of his team’s top three scorers are out of action. He plays in less than 50% of the CBS leagues and that number is sure to rise significantly between weeks 6 and 7. Milton averaged 14.1 points, 3.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 35 career starts with the 76ers.

Mike Conley (leg) will be out of the Utah Jazz’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, so either Collin Sexton or Beasley could start with Jordan Clarkson. While Sexton may draw more attention between the two, Beasley has been a more productive quarterback lately. Beasley averaged 18.3 points and 4.0 rebounds in 27.9 minutes per night in Conley’s last eight games. If Beasley doesn’t start, he’s likely to be the top-scoring player on the second line. He will likely outshine 30 minutes of the game against the Clippers.
