Point Guard

Stephen Curry - Golden State Warriors (vs. Utah Jazz)

The Utah Jazz have clenched their playoff berth and find themselves facing the Golden State Warriors tonight favored by -2 points with a 225.5 O/U courtesy of pointsbet.com. Curry has been on fire as of late. He has reached at least 62.0 FPPG in three of his last six games. In the remaining three games Curry totalled 53, 59.3 and 57.3. Considering his high floor and massive potential, his salaries are still worth paying. With Conley and Mitchell out for tonight's match up, Curry will be able to do his thing.

Other PG Option: Ja Morant

Shooting Guard

Caris LeVert - Indiana Pacers (vs. Cleveland Cavaliers)

Malcolm Brogdon is questionable for Monday night’s match up with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers are allowing their opponents to shoot 38.3% from beyond the arc (second highest in the league). They are also allowing their opponents to average 8.5 steals per game (second highest in the league). LeVert will benefit off of a sloppy Cleveland lineup that will be without Cedi Osman, Kevin Love, and Darius Garland. LeVert is 6’6” and will be matching up against Dotson, Sexton, or Okoro. None of these plays are capable of limiting an aggressive player like Caris LeVert. Pointsbet.com has the Pacers favroed by -9 points with a 229 O/U. Other Pacer players that I believe will significantly benefit from tonight's matchup include Edmond Sumner and Domantas Sabonis. Sabonis is my top play for tonight's 6- game slate.

Other SG Option: CJ McCollum & Andrew Wiggins

Small Forward

Edmond Sumner - Indiana Pacers (vs. Cleveland Cavaliers)

Cleveland has been a targetable team for daily fantasy purposes all season long. The best way to target them is with opposing point guards because Sexton can allow major points to his opposing matchup. Under that logic, Sexton's matchup is who you’re going to want to invest in when targeting a defensively lacking Cavaliers team. Because Sexton is undersized to defend LaVert, Dotson is going to have to do it for him. This leaves Edmond Sumner matching up against the ever so targetable Collin Sexton. It’s hard to completely project matchups due to the fact that I do not have confirmed lineups at the moment but assuming Dotson starts he will be attempting to defend LaVert leaving Collin Sexton matching up with Sumner. Sumner will benefit from this match up (if this is in fact the matchup). It’s important to invest in either LaVert or Sumner. LaVert could potentially be very chalky so Sumner becomes the perfect pivot play against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight.

Other SF Option: Norman Powell & Jae’Sean Tate.

Power Forward

Domantas Sabonis - Indiana Pacers (vs. Cleveland Cavaliers)

Sabonis’ upside is through the roof tonight and his matchups are perfect against Dean Wade or Jarrett Allen. The Indiana Pacers are favored by -9 points, but personally I believe they will win by upwards of 16 points. If Cleveland's Collin Sexton and Jarrett Allen can carry their team tonight, maybe they can keep it close. But if these players cannot produce massive efforts, Cleveland will be in for a rough night.

Other PF Option: James Johnson & John Collins.

Center

Jusuf Nurkic - Portland Trail Blazers (vs. Houston Rockets)

With many people flocking towards Rudy Gobert, as well as Jakob Poeltl, don't forget about Nurkic. Nurkic will benefit from extra rebounds, blocks and shot attempts against a Houston team who are +14 point underdogs. The Rockets are eliminated from contention and are basically working with their third-string lineup against a completely healthy Portland offense. Make sure you check confirmed line ups, as Christian Wood and Kelly Olynyk are questionable for tonight.

Other C Option: Rudy Gobert
