The Orlando Magic’s young roster is filled with relatively unknown names to casual NBA fans, but point guard Cole Anthony has stepped up this season as the team’s top player and as a legitimate selection for competitive NBA DFS lineups. He missed the Magic’s last game against Milwaukee on Saturday with an ankle injury, and could be out when the two teams meet again on Monday. With Anthony unavailable, R.J. Hampton saw more minutes off the bench and scored 19 points and had nine assists with five rebounds against the Bucks.

If Anthony finds his way back on the floor on Monday, rookie Franz Wagner could also be an interesting option on daily Fantasy sites like FanDuel or DraftKings. Wagner had a quiet night against the Bucks on Saturday, but in the three games prior, he had been averaging 17.3 points 5.3 rebounds, and hit 45 percent of his 3-point attempts. Before finalizing your NBA DFS picks for Monday, be sure to check out the NBA DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy basketball picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure

McClure is a DFS professional with nearly $2 million in career winnings. He’s also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. 

This allows him to find the best NBA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NBA DFS player.

On Sunday, McClure listed Bulls guard Zach LaVine as part of his NBA DFS player pool on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: LaVine finished with 21 points, six rebounds and four assists to return 37.5 points on DraftKings and 38.2 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to the Monday, November 22 NBA DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy basketball picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NBA DFS picks for Monday, November 22

One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for Monday is Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell at $8,500 on DraftKings and $8,300 on FanDuel. Mitchell is coming off of his best performance since November 11, when he scored 26 points with five rebounds and five assists in a win against Sacramento on Saturday.

On Monday, the Jazz host Memphis, and the Grizzlies have been a bottom-10 Fantasy defense against opposing shooting guards. Among the teams that Mitchell played at least two games against last season, he had his second-highest scoring average (35 points per game), fourth-most assists (6.5 per game) and second-highest 3-point percentage (71.4) against the Grizzlies. Against the Timberwolves on Saturday, Memphis allowed D’Angelo Russell to score 28 points and hit 60 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Another part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Minnesota’s D’Angelo Russell at $7,600 on DraftKings and $7,400 on FanDuel. Since returning from an ankle injury that kept him out for the first few games in November, Russell has been playing at a high level. Over the eight games since he’s been back in the lineup, he’s averaged 21.8 points, 6.3 assists and has shot 41.5 percent from the field.

On Monday, the Timberwolves take on a New Orleans Pelicans team that has struggled to defend on the perimeter and gives up the sixth-most points per game in the NBA. Russell is coming off a big night and his numbers on the road have actually been significantly better than at home this season. As a visitor, Russell is averaging 22.8 points, seven assists, and is sinking 42 percent of his 3-point attempts in 2021-22.

How to set NBA DFS lineups for Monday, November 22

McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
