Monday gives us six-game slate with our featured #narrative being LeBron and Kyrie going at it alone without the services of their third amigo, Kevin Love, who is out with back spasms. For purposes of DFS, it is only a five-game slate as the Kings-76ers game isn’t included since it’s a makeup game. Irving and James see game dominant usage and fantasy points per minute with K-Love off the court:

At 1.46 fantasy points per minute for LeBron and 1.30 for Kyrie, it’s a DFS jam them in scenario in Dallas tonight. In the same game tonight, Yogi Ferrell signed a 10-day contract with the Mavericks and started last night, putting up 26.50 DK points in 36 minutes of play for a value of 7.57x. Deron Williams has already been ruled out, so a mini game stack is in play with a cheap option with a guy playing for his life on a short contract and thrust into big minutes once again.
