Only four games on the slate for Monday Night DFS hoops. Chris Paul, Jimmy Butler, and DeMar DeRozan have all started the season off hot and should definitely be the first options when deciding who you should build your team around. Don't be afraid to take all three and then some of the guys off the list below.
In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy NBA lineup picks for DraftKings on 10/31/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays on DraftKings. Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to business!
DraftKings DFS Guards
Chris Paul – PG, LAC ($8.500)
The Clippers have only played one game so far but they looked really good. Paul put up 27 points, 5 boards, and 5 assists against the Trailblazers. He will be taking on talented young guards again tonight in Phoenix. Expect Paul to put on a teaching lesson for Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, and Devin Booker. There are no signs of age or regression with CP3 so a 20 point and 10 assist season would be the expectation. Paul is definitely expensive but everyone will have him in their lineups and he is well worth it.
Jeremy Lin – PG, BKN ($6,300)
Lin’s last stat line (21 pts, 9 rebs, 9 asts) was something that hasn’t happened in a Nets uniform since the Jason Kidd days. Brooklyn’s offense runs through Jeremy Lin. He is the prime ball handler and facilitator. Expect both the Bulls and Nets to go up and down the court despite Chicago not being the youngest team. Isaiah Thomas was able to go off for 26 points against the Bulls on their opening night. Rondo and Wade are not the most aggressive defenders in their old age and should be letting guards score on them all year.
Bojan Bogdanovic – SG/SF, BKN ($4,600)
Bogdanovic will consistently be one of the better bang for your buck options out there. He had a humongous summer with his national team and has slid that form right into the regular season. After pouring in 26 points and eight boards against the Bucks in a loss, it is obvious that Bojan has the confidence and the green light necessary to consistently go off. While Lin might be the Nets most important ball handler and playmaker, Bojan is definitely Brooklyn’s most lethal scorer. While having Lin and Bogdanovic in your lineup might make you one of the worst teams in the NBA, having them in your fantasy lineup is a very reasonable and potentially profitable decision.
