Last night was really something else. My cash game lock James Johnson was sick and unable to play, which really threw the whole lineup into disarray. Willie Reed went absolutely NUTS in JJ’s absence, which is something to keep an eye on tonight. There are a number of fantastic cash plays available tonight, but right now Greg Monroe is catching my eye with a juicy matchup against the Knicks on tap.

Greg Monroe highlights Draftkings Daily NBA picks | 1/4/17
Greg Monroe – Milwaukee Bucks ($4800)
I’ve really never doubted Greg Monroe or his talent. The dude was a beast with the Pistons averaging 15+ PPG and 9+ RPG four straight years before landing in Milwaukee. But then along comes Jason Kidd who decides Miles Plumlee is the better option, and Greg Monroe is suddenly a bench player. Its always been a head-scratcher for me, as the Bucks show a ton of promise, and it seems like Giannis, Jabari and Monroe make for an incredible core. But what do I know… I’m just a guy behind a computer.
From a fantasy perspective, Greg Monroe is still a viable point per minute producer. On the season, whether home or away, Monroe averages at least 1 fantasy point per minute. In just 20 minutes per game on the road, Monroe is averaging 23.5 fantasy points! Tonight he gets to face the New York Knicks who allow the 2nd most FPPG to opposing centers. Over his last 4 games, Greg Monroe has posted 30.25, 39.5, 9.25 (WTF?) and 34.25 fantasy points. As long as Jason Kidd doesn’t throw a wrench in our plans, Greg should be good for at least another 30 fantasy points in this plus matchup.
Other Options: Spencer Hawes, Nikola Vucevic, Joakim Noah, Serge Ibaka
