The NBA DFS slate on Monday offers some of the very best talent in the league. Among the star-studded NBA DFS picks available is Washington’s Bradley Beal, who leads the NBA in scoring with 32.9 points per game. Beal and the Wizards travel to face the defending world champion Los Angeles Lakers at 10 p.m. ET. The Mavericks vs. Grizzlies matchup sees two of the best young players in the NBA square off, as Dallas’ Luka Doncic takes on Memphis’ Ja Morant at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Top NBA DFS picks for Monday, Feb. 22
One of McClure’s top NBA DFS picks for his Monday NBA daily Fantasy lineups is Lakers forward LeBron James at $10,400 on DraftKings and $10,400 on FanDuel. James is averaging 25.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game this season. That includes a 19-point, nine-rebound, nine-assist effort on Saturday against the Heat.
James shot just 7-of-21 from the field and committed five turnovers against Miami, but his usual stat-stuffing effort was still worth over 45 points on DraftKings. That represents the floor for James in his last 10 outings, as he has popped for an average of over 55 points on DraftKings during that span. With Anthony Davis (calf/Achilles) still out, McClure figures James is in prime position for another huge NBA DFS performance.
Part of McClure’s optimal NBA DFS strategy includes rostering Rockets guard Eric Gordon at $6,300 on DraftKings and $5,300 on FanDuel. Gordon is averaging 21.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists in his last 10 games. The 13-year veteran is delivering 18.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season.
Gordon gets a mouthwatering matchup against the Bulls on Monday night, a team he torched for 21 points, four assists and two rebounds earlier this season. The Bulls are also giving up 115.3 points per game this season, which ranks 27th in the NBA. Gordon is a complete steal at this price point, so confidently lock him in your NBA DFS lineups on Monday.
