Monday night is a light night of NBA action with only three games on tap.  There are some solid matchups to watch, though, and enough teams to pick from to get a good DFS fantasy basketball team together. To see the plays I like the most, check out my FanDuel daily picks on the following slides. 

The three games tonight start at 7:30 as the Spurs head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets who will be in their first game under interim head coach Tony Brown.  Brown is stepping in for Lionel Hollins who was fired yesterday.  At 8:00, the Bulls host the Wizards in an Eastern Conference showdown as the two teams meet for the first time this season. To close out the night, the Heat play for the third time in four nights as they continue their six-game western swing as they travel to Oakland to take on the Warriors.

With only six teams to pick from, getting the perfect team together tonight can be a little tricky. I’ve put together my favorite plays of the day on the following slides for my FanDuel daily picks. There is a slide for high-salary options and a slide for high-value options at each position, and on each slide you’ll find at least two players with a few extras thrown in where I can with the limited slate.  I base my picks on the current form of each player and the positional matchups each player will face in tonight’s game.

Since the start of 2016, I also have started to rank my picks using stars after each selection. For a full explanation of the rating system, check out the last slide of this post, but in short the more stars that are after a player the more confidence I have in the pick. On the final slide of the post you can see my recent results at each level of confidence.  Also on the final slide of the post, you can see how I’m putting together the best of my picks into my lineup for tonight’s contests.

In this post, all salary references and references to “fantasy points” refer to FanDuel pricing and scoring.  If you are looking for similar coverage specifically for DraftKings, check the box above for related posts or find the latest on our fantasy basketball hub.

If you have any questions about my picks for today or any of our Fansided fantasy coverage, you can leave them at the bottom of the page in the comments section.  For an even quicker response, you can find me throughout the day on Twitter @FansidedFantasy. Make sure to check back in the 30 minutes leading up to 7:30 since FanDuel still doesn’t support late-swapping and will lock your entire roster when the first game tips off at 7:30.

If you find my picks and analysis helpful for today and would like to check out my DFS fantasy basketball posts each morning, the easiest way to find the FanDuel daily picks is to drop a bookmark on our fantasy basketball hub or follow on Twitter where I’ll tweet out the links each day when my picks go live.

Let’s get going with my FanDuel daily picks for this Monday, January 11.
