D. Melton - PG
Deâ??Anthony Melton provided a boost off the bench with 19 points (7-for-15 FGs), six rebounds, two assists, four steals, one block and five triples against the Bulls on Monday.
After shining in a spot start on Saturday, Melton returned to his role off the bench with James Harden back in the lineup. Despite that, Melton still provided a much-needed boost off the bench in this game. Doc Rivers has turned to him to play more minutes with P.J. Tucker sidelined, which has allowed him to provide big numbers over their last two games. The 76ers play three more games this week, and if Tucker remains sidelined, Melton should continue to put up big numbers, even if he's coming off the bench.

J. Randle - PF
Julius Randle went off in Monday's 140-134 loss to the Timberwolves, scoring 57 points (19-of-29 FGs, 11-of-13 FTs) with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, and eight 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
As good as Randle was in the first half, scoring 26 points, he was even better in the third quarter. Randle scored 26 points in that period alone, with his outburst pulling the Knicks to within one at the end of the frame. Randle ultimately finished five points shy of Carmelo Anthony's Madison Square Garden record (for a Knick), but he did notch his first career 50-point game. The Knicks will finish their week early in comparison to most of the league, wrapping things up with a Wednesday/Thursday road back-to-back against the Heat and Magic.

J. Harden - SG
James Harden struggled with his shot on Monday but still finished with five points (2-for-14 FGs), seven rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers against the Bulls.
After missing Saturdayâ??s game, Harden was back in the lineup on Saturday. He didnâ??t shoot well from the floor, but he was still able to provide value across the board. However, the poor shooting was bad enough that he had one of the worst scoring games of his career. He was still able to dish out plenty of assists, and he has at least 10 assists in four straight games and in seven of his last eight. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to provide the scoring boost that they needed him to after Joel Embiid fouled out, which prevented them from extending their winning streak.

J. Embiid - C
Joel Embiid led the 76ers with 37 points (11-for-22 FGs, 15-for-17 FTs), 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and five turnovers before fouling out in a 109-105 loss to Chicago on Monday.
A low-scoring game didnâ??t stop Embiid from providing a dominant line for fantasy managers. He scored at least 30 points for the 10th straight game and had a monster line before fouling out during the second overtime. Embiid has been the best player in fantasy basketball this season, and he continues to put up incredible numbers each and every night. Unfortunately, it wasnâ??t enough to extend their winning streak, but he provided more than enough production for fantasy managers that need him to put up big numbers in the playoffs.

N. Vucevic - C
Nikola Vucevic provided a solid line on Monday with 21 points (8-for-12 FGs), 12 rebounds, two assists, four steals and a triple against the 76ers.
Vucevic recorded a double-double for the sixth straight game, which helped Chicago win their third straight game and the fifth in their last six. Even with the Bulls having an up and down season, Vucevic has consistently been one of the most productive players in fantasy basketball this season. Chicago still plays three more games this week, which will give him plenty of chances to provide dominant value.

T. Prince - PF
Taurean Prince shot 12-of-13 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in Monday's 140-134 win over the Knicks, scoring a season-high 35 points with five rebounds, two assists, and eight 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
Making his second consecutive start for the injured Anthony Edwards (ankle), Prince became the latest visitor to make Madison Square Garden his personal playground. Shooting 7-of-8 from the field, which included five 3-pointers without a miss, he scored 20 points in the first half. And his layup with 10.4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter proved to be the dagger, with Minnesota picking up a crucial win away from home. Not only were the 35 points a season-high for Prince, but this is also the first time he's scored more than 20 in a game this season. Minnesota plays two more games in Week 22, and Prince certainly salvaged his streaming value with his performance Monday night.

D. DeRozan - SG
DeMar DeRozan posted a full line on Monday with 25 points (10-for-22 FGs), eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block against Philadelphia.
DeRozan didnâ??t shoot the ball well in this game, but he was still able to hit a big shot late in the game that helped force overtime, as he has done time and time again. He was able to add four points in each overtime period, including a layup to force the second overtime. After playing in a double overtime game against Minnesota on Friday, DeRozan was able to play 40 minutes on Saturday. His status shouldn't be in question for Wednesday's rematch with the 76ers.

Z. LaVine - SG
Zach LaVine had a solid scoring night on Monday with 26 points (8-for-20 FGs), two rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two triples and one block in a 109-105 win over the 76ers in double overtime.
After starting out the month with seven straight games scoring at least 20 points, LaVine only reached 18 in their last game. He got back on track on Monday, and the extra periods allowed him to fill out a solid line, despite a low-scoring game. He also played lockdown defense on Tyrese Maxey to help seal the win in double overtime. LaVine has nearly provided first round value over the past two weeks, and the extra time from two double overtime games helped his production.
